Not to be confused with Nightmare.

Nightmares are enemies that first appear in level 7 of Sandman.


Nightmares appear as black, skinny creatures with two legs, two arms, two wings, and a tail. They demon-like look with narrow red eyes.

Game information

Just as sleepwalkers come from light portals, nightmares will spawn from any dark portals when the level begins, although the number of nightmares that will spawn from a portal will vary according to level. Nightmares act identically to the sleepwalkers, in which they walk back and forth, turning when they hit a wall. Like sleepwalkers, nightmares are able to walk on sand and change directions when sand hits them from above. Nightmares cause a sleepwalker to die upon contact.
