Description of A Nightmare on Elm Street
In this exciting action game based on the hit movie, you must find evil Freddy's house before he finds you, and enter it to rescue your friends. Freddy strangely disappears after you enter the house, but you must contend with the various nightmarish creatures. A fast, fun, but very short game if you're a good action gamer.

I read that even though the c64 version is not as good graphically it has music. Can anyone confirm? I still have not gotten the c64 emulator, but I do plan too.

This game was great, and it was creepy as hell too. First the frantic dash to find his house before he finds you, then hours of great puzzles and action as he catches up to you if you take too long. Very entertaining, and a great game from Elm St Dream Warriors. Many of the powers looked cool or had their uses, but I chose Nancy and freeze time, which came in extra handy in the very hard end game. It took some work to figure out how to end him and the game.

The PC game is much different from the Nintendo game Rebecca but thanks for the anecdote. ; )
I have to second your feelings Mika. Played this game years back when I got it from Home of the Underdogs and the music and graphics are stuck in my head as well. It gives off nightmarish vibes just like the film. Mediocre gameplay but a great experience all around.

This is a surprisingly great old horror game with a few rpg-like elements. If you're a fan of the movies, or a horror fan in general I highly recommend this old abandonware.
