A downloadable NES Homebrew

The final in the trilogy of slasher games I made in the late 90s, before I disappeared from game dev for a while. Play as Freddy and terrorize teenagers in their sleep. This was more of an interactive story game.

This was originally made in Klik N Play, converted over to Click & Create, and then ported to play on an NES.

For more information on the original windows game, visit the official page here.

Alternate download link.

{Windows 98 version released: Nov 20, 1999. NES demake released: Oct 22, 2022.}

-=List of easter eggs and codes=-

  • On the credits screen.. Press the select button 10 times to jump to the Bonus Nightmare Level instantly.
  • On the screen that displays β€œThe End,” press any button to see a secret message. 
  • After you kill josh in dreamland it changes the scene to his room where he dies in the real world. Press left + select on this scene for a familiar surprise.


  • Having trouble with the kitchen part? When Amanda gets close to the door, press A or B to use your powers to shut it. Then, before she reaches the stove top and burns her wrists to wake up, press A or B to warp her to the dream world.
  • Is there a gap in the floor? Try pressing A or B to use your powers.
  • In the final showdown with the spikes, make sure your glove hits directly on the black dot of the electrical apparatus, not above or past it. Otherwise, it won't deactivate.
  • No matter how hard you try, you cannot win in door #3.


If the slasher roms aren't running on your device, download THIS zip file of all 4 games. They're all different mapper versions of the roms.


Went to cameo and sent footage of my free horror games I made about these legends to them! This is what they had to say!

Great work!  Featured in my NES Homebrew Horror video.

Did you use NESMaker? Or something else entirely?

Coded from scratch. Good ol’ 6502 assembly language. 

I posted a gameplay of A Nightmare On Elm Street, hours ago, on YouTube, and I came here on ItchIo looking for this title, and I found your game. I will download and play. Thanks!
