Did Rare really make this?[edit]

"There is no video game that has been developed in-house by LJN. All of LJN's video games were developed by external developers, although many of their video games (especially the pre-Acclaim ones) did not disclose the developer."

-quotation from the LJN article


I've never owned A Nightmare on Elm Street for the NES, and thus do not know whether or not this game was actually developed by Rare. Is there any evidence of this? 50.89.56.198 (talk) 20:43, 22 March 2012 (UTC)

Rare's name doesn't appear anywhere in the game or on the packaging, but you can find the following buried in the game code: PROGRAM AND AUDIOVISUALS BY RARE LTD. The game itself is apparently a cut down version of Beetlejuice, which Rare developed around the same time. As I understand it, Rare made an entirely different NOES game, had to scrap it, and ended up reusing code from Beetlejuice. ButOnMethItIs (talk) 09:05, 28 December 2012 (UTC)
Turns out that text is in the load screen clear as day. Oops. ButOnMethItIs (talk) 09:09, 28 December 2012 (UTC)
