About Monster Crew

You play Frankie, a spunky lad obsessed with the collectable card game Monster Crew. Frankie is crushed when his prized card collection is accidentally sold at the family garage sale. What's worse, the cards were bought by the crazy scientist who lives in the creepy castle up on the hill. Despite his fears, Frankie goes off to retrieve his cards. Frankie enters the castle and ends up in an unusual elevator. As he presses the button, the lights dim. The air crackles with a rush of lightning. Frankie steps out of the elevator as Frankenstein. Surprised, but excited, Frankie sets out to find his cards and solve this shocking new mystery.
