It is Professor Fusion's job to investigate seismic disturbances in the Nevada desert, close to the site of a secret nuclear test five years earlier. Before he knows where he is, he has been sucked into the ground, finding himself within a nightmarish world created by scientifically-advanced mutant creatures, from which he must somehow escape.

Subterranean Nightmare is a side-view platform game set within this nightmarish world. Move between the screens collecting crystals, working out the safest path to avoid contact with hazards or any severe falls. Through experience Professor Fusion will learn which creatures are deadly, which can be jumped on for leverage, and which can work in his favour by moving him.
