Author's comments and explanations:
-Takes no Damage

-One player controls four characters

-Aims for fastest time

The Reason I made this run is because I wanted to see one with four players, so ¿why should I wait for someone to make it happen? I admire the precision and accuracy, but I also love to watch an “untouchable heroe” movie, so I decided to create it with that premise (sounded like a challenge). I hope this run has what is needed to entertain and amaze the viewers.

-As you might know, to complete the game you need to find all the crunchy bones inside the architectural madness called Elm street in order to feed the starving pet of Freddy Kruger "little furnace" the best local choreographic group called elm street boys Decide to take a shot and prepare their best moves to help Freddy out.

The challenges while controlling four characters are:

- Exchange controls constantly to give individual movement to each character - Manipulate 8 different buttons for jumping and punching - Calculate the course and actions of every player (falling stones suck!) - Choose the best path for each character.

Sometimes I could not avoid getting back on my own Steps, so I do. I tried to keep the action alive giving each kid his time and place to act, but in some levels you need to regroup and walk as a four-headed Monster. Some bosses could be killed faster, but I think is more interesting to use all the dream costumes to make it more dynamic. The real battle speed comes near the last confrontation with freddy, so watch it carefull, You’ll see a huge difference between killing bosses with and without four athletes.

Here it is! I hope you enjoy it!.

Truncated: People very much seemed to like the idea, and something like this has never been done before. The quality of the movie was, as already noted, not good enough.

I really hope that you go trough with your improved version, because I can almost guarantee that it would get published.
