A Nightmare On Elm Street is a DOS/IBM PC compatible video game that was released in 1989. The game was based off A Nightmare on Elm Street 3: Dream Warriors and involves exploring Freddy Krueger's home in the Dream World and rescuing your friends in an ever descending labyrinth.
The game is available for download at Abandonia with the use of DOSBox.
In the beginning, the player gets to choose what character he wants to play, as each character has his or her own special ability. After selecting a character, it is up to the player to rescue the five other characters from Freddy’s sharp claws. But before you can do that, you must first find out where Freddy lives…
Once you have found out where Freddy lives, you have to move through his maze-like house collecting keys, pulling switches and defeating hordes of strange and creepy enemies.
You will gradually venture deeper into his house, and into madness.
