Aaahh!! Real Monsters is a platformer based on the Nicklodeon cartoon series of the same name. It was released in 1995 for the Sega Genesis and SNES.
In this game, the player controls the 3 monsters Ickis, Oblina, and Krumm as they attempt to pass their midterms at Monster Academy.
Gameplay involves completing a different task in each level, which can include finding a specific item, scaring a certain person, or defeating a boss.
The player controls the group of three monsters and can switch which monster is being controlled at any time. The other two will follow behind the leader. Each monster has unique abilities and scares that must be utilized to complete the stages.
The player can collect garbage to throw at enemies and monster books which will allow them to perform "scare" attacks. Each monster's scare is unique and based on their attack from the series; for example, Oblina pulls large amounts of garbage from her stomach and tongue, and Ickis grows tall and evil.
