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.
