Have you ever felt the rush of 50,000 volts as an electric shock jolts
through your body? Have you ever been tormented by angry pillows in
the middle of the night? Have you ever fallen off a six story platform
and lived to tell about it? Not many people have, but you will... So
put on your jogging shoes and say goodbye to your next of kin, because
you have an appointment with the doctor!
Welcome to Dr. Sleeptite And The Nightmare Factory.

where the doctor is, but his automated underground complex still
continues to produce its fiendish product.
Your job (as Restless Ralph Runabout) is to traverse six levels of Dr.
Sleeptite's Nightmare Factory, to destroy his Nightmare Capsules, and
attempt to shutdown his Dream Machine. Sound easy? Not when you're
being chased about by the doctor's first invention: Killer Pillows!
