Technical Information:

  • Takes Damage to save Time

  • One player controls four characters

  • Aims for fastest time

  • Genre: platform

Game Description:

The goal of the game is to grab all the bones in the scene to advance to the next level. You need to kill a boss in every level in order to meet Freddy Kruger at the elm street high.

Playing strategy

The challenges while controlling four characters are:

  • choosing the best path for each character to give him an individual goal

  • avoid lag caused as soon as there are more than 6 elements on screen.

  • Bosses become more powerful

  • Avoid death (there are no health supplies, you can only get 3 hits)

  • Messing with 4 jump buttons, 4 punch buttons, 16 different directions plus 4 Select buttons.

Boss strategies:

The best way to kill the bosses is to use 4 athletes attacking at the same time, while the boss is hurt, it cant harm the characters by collision, this is a good way to stay as close as possible to hit them faster.

The making of this run:

My first attempt to do this run was months ago, the movie wasn’t accepted and I got a little bit disappointed, so I quited. Some days ago I decided to continue it, and at last I have finished it. Enjoy!
