"Let's combine Sonic The Hedgehog, Commander Keen, and a little Super Meat Boy together! A very difficult game that is a bunch of fun."
- CryMor Gaming

"NightmareZ is a pretty good time waster. I would get frustrated with the deaths, but would be determined to continue on. It was a good frustration and I found myself laughing at myself when I kept dying to those scythes." - TICGN

"It is such a good game." - Morph Shuffle

"NightmareZ is a platformer which is rough around the edges. Progressing through the stages themselves, with the player character's majestic, if clumsy, movement is a blast." - BlotGaming

"A little action-platformer that shows a great deal of promise, its fast, frantic and all round pretty damn fun!" - Smash GaminG!!

Looks nice, very retro!

Somehow the game does not open when I double click the .exe file :-(
