ESCAPE FROM ELM STREET
BUY THE GAME
Navigate Elm Street and collect Freddy's bones...
Bury and consecrate Freddy once and for all!
The game itself is a side-scrolling platform in which the player fights their way through the levels and enemies such as snakes, bats, and ghosts. There is a sleep meter to guide you along the way. It goes down slowly as the player progresses through the level, or if the player stands still. The sleep meter also goes down when the player takes damage. When the sleep meter runs out, the player character falls asleep and the screen colors change to darker colors and the enemies change and become harder to defeat. Scattered throughout the game are dream tokens that allow the player to change in dream characters with special abilities. Players can boost their sleep meter by getting cups of coffee scattered throughout buildings and wake up by finding a boombox.
Throughout the levels, players collect Freddy Krueger's bones to throw into a furnace at the end, and before beating each level, players must face a boss, which is a different part of Freddy's body, such as his glove or his head. Bosses include a giant Freddy glove with a long chain arm, a chomping Freddy head on a long chain neck, a floating Freddy hand and head, a bat with a vampire head, a ghost with a Freddy head, and Freddy Krueger himself. Defeated bosses leave behind a key, which when touched transports the player back onto Elm Street. The game ends when either the players get killed off...or the player manages to defeat Freddy by tossing all of his bones into the furnace.
ONE, TWO...FREDDY'S COMIN' FOR YOU!
