The longer you dream, the worse it gets. This could become a frightmare!

There are two aims to the game:
This is achieved by advancing the alarm clock to 8:12am. Any new room visited will advance the clock by six minutes.
To increase your dream state to the highest you can
Dream states are recorded by two words, an adjective, e.g. TERRIBLE, and a noun describing the dream state, e.g. NIGHTMARE.
Note: For each dream state there are fifteen adjectives, beginning mild and becoming more extreme. Scoring changes the letter colour of both adjective and noun. When both words have changed colour, then the adjective changes. When all fifteen adjectives have been used to describe a dream state, then the next dream state is used, e.g. The lowest score is "BAD DREAM", the highest score is "NEFARIOUS FRIGHTMARE", hence the title of the game.
