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? (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)
