A Nightmare On Elm Street Box Description

Something frightening has been happening on Elm Street lately. It seems that with each waking day another grussome discovery is made... another neighborhood teen has mysteriously passed away into the dark stillness of the night. Everyone says it's "natural causes," but it seems as if something (or someone) has been picking them off one by one in their sleep. It's a horrible nightmare come true... and this nightmare has a name: Freddy Krueger.�
It's up to you and your remaining friends to search Elm Street for his bones, which have been scattered about then collect and burn them in the High School furnace. If you can just stay awake long enough, you might be able to end Freddy's� reign of terror for good. You had better hurry though, it's getting late and you can feel your eyelids getting heavier and heavier by the minute.

A Nightmare On Elm Street Review by: Marcmoney - 7.8/10

Nightmare on Elm Street Review
Overall - 7.8

Nightmare on Elm Street was a great movie for the past decade.  It was very good, but on this game, it is slightly bad for the NES.  This game has 4-players in the game, which is pretty cool when you want to play with a bunch of friends.  There are some bad things about this game and some that are just weird. :S

Graphics - 8

The graphics are very good.  The part where it says "Freddy's Coming" makes it look scary. :) I really liked that because it was a scary wording.  What was weird in the game is that when you fall asleep, you can change into yourself that has a weapon, but the weirdest thing about it is your clothings.  It looks like you are wearing a tank top and panties.  Freaking disgusting, but his moves are better than his original self.

Sound - 8

The sound is good too.  The background sound is okay, the scary song that plays when Freddy appears is pretty cool.

Addictiveness - 7

I would play this often because like I said, it is a 4-player game and that you have a lot of lives in the game.  What I did find out was that there is a limit in how much you die.  I think you get like 5 continues and in those continues is 5 lives, so that is about 25 lives you have in the game.

Story - N/A

I could not find the story in the game, but in the game play, you are a person that is trying to stop Freddy and you have to go in houses and get bones to be able to fall asleep (sounds pretty stupid).  When you fall asleep, you go to the end of the level in the house to verse him, then his hand, then his other hand, I do not know what comes after that because I got a game over.

Depth - 7

The game has basic features.  When I said that a screen pops up saying "Freddy's Coming" it is like they took it from the game Castlevania II - Simon's Quest when it changes the day and night by a dialog box and stops your game for a few seconds.  Other than that, the controls are just related to other NES games.

Difficulty - 6

The game is kind of hard.  What I hated the most was that there was too many enemies in some of the levels.  The most annoying thing is in one of the levels, the bats can poop on you (I don't know what they drop), which is annoying cause I was trying to get a bone and I couldn't because the stupid bat kept dropping doo doo bombs on me. :S

Wrap Things Up...

Nightmare on Elm Street was one of those games that was made because of how popular the movie was.  I recommend trying this game, it is not that bad of a game, but is worth it if you are a fan of Freddy Kruger (might have misspelled that).  Also, watch some of his movies, they are very good. :)

A Nightmare On Elm Street Game Description

LJN's NES version of the classic horror series casts the player as a teen searching the houses on Elm Street for Freddy Krueger's bones. Once they are all collected, they must be thrown into the high school furnace to destroy Freddy once and for all (a plot similar to 1987's A Nightmare on Elm Street 3: Dream Warriors).

Nightmare has two worlds. In the red-tinted "real world," players fight snakes and spiders while navigating standard platform challenges. The players here have a "sleep meter" that depletes with every hit taken. If the player's sleep meter drops to empty, the game transitions into the blue-tinted "dream world," where enemies take on the appearance of skeletons and ghosts. An invisible timer also starts, counting down until Freddy appears and forces the player into a brief boss battle. The sleep meter becomes a standard life gauge in the dream world, and deducts a life from the player if drained.

Players can find and collect three different icons in the dream world to become "Dream Warriors" with special powers and projectile attacks - both of which give a significant edge when fighting Freddy. Collecting all the bones in a level takes the player to a final level boss, usually taking the form of a monster with Freddy's face or trademark razor glove. Players move back and forth down Elm Street, and a new house opens up as the previous one is cleared.

 Once you know where to go and realize that you don't have to fight every enemy, you will do a lot better in this game.

 I think avgn was very hard on this game, nes games don't have to make sense, they just have to be fun to play, so I like it. :)
Lagslayer 05-21-10 - 10:02 PM
 Needs to let you know which door you can go in and when. Directional confusion aside, it's at least playable.
