* AWinnerIsYou: You battle through a school full of monsters to rescue the girl and then... as you're watching the aftermath of the adventure: SHE STEPS AWAY FROM YOU. Uh-huh. That's right. You do all the work and you [[{{DidNotGetTheGirl}} don't even get the girl]] in the end.

* [[{{DieChairDie}} Die TV Set Die]]: In the classrooms are tvs you can smash in to get apples that restore health points.

* ExecutiveMeddling: See ''What Could Have Been'' below for most examples. Also some of the items were different including the Spinal Zap which was originally the Spinal Tap and the image in the manual was still that of an epidermic needle. With this knowledge in mind: it's easy to know why it works against the spine blocking the elevator...

* ICouldaBeenAContender: This could apply to the game itself as the interview (see WhatCouldHaveBeen below) seems to signify that this was a labor of love, but it got swept to the way-side due to executive meddling, hardware restrictions, bad programming choices, etc.

* WhatCouldHaveBeen: LOTS. For starters: Scott Marshall (the game' creator) originally wanted to put this on Gameboy. The hero was originally going to be a black guy (which could have put [[UnfortunateImplications an unpleasant spin on the finished product's ending]]). The bosses were going to be smaller parts of the final boss. There were going to be useful things hidden in the lockers along with skeletons. A schoolbell would sound and flood the halls with zombie students. A different way was needed to get to the crawl space and more.

No context entry. What alternate interpretation? Well, there is one theory. I'll move it to YMMV.
* AlternativeCharacterInterpretation: Loads.

* GameBreaker: There's a certain bug wherein you can hide behind the lockers and move about freely making you untouchable to enemies, but they're still vulnerable to you.

In the end, the game comes off like a B Horror Movie with no script.
