5.0 out of 5 stars great for kids 27 Oct 2010
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
This game is excellent for kids. It helps hand eye coordination and is not really violent (smacking things with a teddy bear doesn't count) It's also great fun for adults like me who can't manage anything for ages 7+! The super powers the characters get (eg magic fairy for girl and robot for boy) just make it better! The sound effects are really cool too. I got this game for myself when it came out years ago and when my darling children wore it out I had to look for another copy! I would recommend it to anyone. The best of all is that the whole game is a dream and if really young kids get scared they can be told it's not real, and when they beat the bad guys they really feel they can take on the world.

5.0 out of 5 stars I like this game! 24 Dec 2007

Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
Okay, so 40 Winks isn't the most awe-inspiring game that you can put into your PlayStation console but it isn't the worst by far.

Yes, I agree with some critics that the talking alarm clock was a bit babyish but he didn't appear very often other than to give hints on what to do in certain parts of the game. At least you didn't have put up with his voice for very long which I have to admit reminded me of someone with perpetually blocked sinuses!

The story is as follows. NiteKap, the villain of the game just can't get to sleep. He decides that if he can't get some shuteye the why should any body else get a good night's sleep? He sends Threadbear, his cute but evil teddy-bear sidekick to capture the Winks; these are little creatures that give people good dreams. Instead he turns most of the of the Winks into Hood-Winks who are little green little critters that give make sure that no can sleep because all dreams will become nightmares! However there are still 40 Winks left but they are held captive and it is the player's job to rescue them and save the world from everlasting nightmares!

To move from level to level you must unlock doors, so along with freeing the Winks you have to collect cogs to open doors as well as find 12 keys to put into a clock, thus enabling you to battle it out with Threadbear and Co. for fate of the sleeping world,

The two characters you can play as are great. Ruff and Tumble are their names and I especially liked the fact you could batter your adversaries into oblivion with either a candleholder or a teddy bear! Some of the characters you can become were fun too, the Caveman, a Monster, a Ninja, a Robot and my favourite Curryman and his little sidekick Manic Mongoose.

Fun: 3.0 out of 5 stars   
40 Winks: Conquer your Dreams has got to be one of the best platformers of its time, or at least, one would think. While it succeeds in many areas such as environments, side features like transformation, has some great lobbies and a working soundtrack, it doesn't make up for its poor jump and movement mechanics, and terrible camera.

In saying that, this game isn't as bad as Croc: Legend of the Gobbos or its sequel. Don't get me wrong, it does everything right but fails to give a solid platforming experience. A lot of things like collecting Winks and the requirements to visit future levels feel forceful, meaning that most gameplay elements are compulsory. If you don't want to do something, then tough, you do it or turn the game off. There's little choice and variety.

A lot of things in the game feel too cliché like the gameplay mechanics, environments, enemy models and soundtrack. While it is the Poor Man's Banjo-Kazooie, it's still a great alternative nontheless.

Recommended for under 10.
