The game's fun, but only for the first ten minutes...
17 December 2006
Conclusion: If you can find this game, only consider to buy it in a £1 bargain bin - and even then, think about the fact that you'll only get 30 minutes of excitement. No replay value and not recommended.
Pros: The first few levels were fun, the graphics alright and the comedy element. For the PlayStation at the time, 40 Winks had some great games, but 40 winks weren't one of them. However, some can consider that "it's so bad, it's good". The audio was good (although not great) and the sounds the characters and enemies made were quite laughable.
Cons: Unfortunately, the bad things in this game sadly outweigh the good. As mentioned above, the graphics were alright, but not up to scratch with other games of the time, although some were quite smooth - although this didn't happen much. The plot was quite dull, and after a 30 minutes of game time, it seemed quite dull as if you were repeating everything over and over again.
Excerpt: Over the years, I have seen many games come and go. You remember the very best, you remember the very worst and you vaguely recall all the sequels, annual updates and games that tried to do things differently. 40 Winks must have been floating around right at the very back of my subconscious for some considerable time, maybe because it didn't fit comfortably into any of the above categories.
Pros: Vibrant and pretty graphics, excellent FMV's, long, good ideas
Cons: Poor control, frustrating, lack of extra lives, overly - complex level layouts
Excerpt: Great all round game..our whole family liked this one..we have infact played it many times..as we enjoyed it so much..you have various tasks to undertake as well as having to pick up both zzzzs and other items to move on..it does get a little tricky at times..and the music is kinda creepy but this only serves to make the game more realistic and fun..i have to say its very good value as you have quite alot to do..and many levels.
Pros: GREAT FOR ADULTS AND KIDS ALIKE GOOD VALUE ALL ROUND PLATFORM GAME
Excerpt: This has to be one of the cutest games in existence! The basic storyline is aimed at young children, but actually the game play is quite complex with the levels being nice and challenging in places. So, the story - well the evil professor nitekap can't sleep and so he's kidnapped the 40winks (cute little creatures which bring sweet dreams) and hidden them in various levels under the guard of "hoodwinks" - the nightmare bringers!
Pros: Gorgeous characters, nice ideas, varied but with a good theme . Overall a great game !
Cons: Completing some levels can be frustrating, especially as you cannot save mid - level .
Excerpt: 40 Winks is one of the best games I have played for ages, first thoughts were that it was a children’s game, but it is far too complex for the kiddies! The two characters are Ruff And Tumble; you can choose either to be the boy or the girl. The story starts in the bedroom, it is based on your dream and you then move from room to room, Wakey Wakey a talking alarm clock is on hand to give you hints and believe me you need them!
Excerpt: 40 Winks is a game that I was very much looking forward to being released. It looked to have everything that I wanted for a game. For example, it was a platformer and it was in 3D and there were multiple levels and very good graphics. However, there are a few minor things that really bring the game down. SO much down in fact that I don't recommend it. Instead of being challenging, this game is just frustrating.
Pros: Good ideas, 3D, interesting plot
Cons: Gets boring very easily, appaling camerawork
Excerpt: Il titolo di questa opinione suona piuttosto fuori luogo, dal momento che 40 Winks è un gioco platform piuttosto carino e anche facile. In realtà, gli incubi c'entrano eccome! TRAMA Potrete scegliere se essere Ruff o Tumble, fratello e sorella che devon ...
Pros: gioco rilassante, poca violenza, più libertà di scelta dei livelli e degli spazi rispetto ad altri
Summary: Este juego es muy recomendable para los más pequeños de la casa, aunque puedo asegurar que los adultos también se divertirán con el. En el juego tendremos que conseguir rescatar los cuarenta duendecillos que se encargan de crear buenos sueños para todos los niños del mundo. El malvado es un anciano con cara de malas pulgas y su fiel compañero y sirviente un osito de peluche.
Summary: Un amigo me recomendó este juego, ya que me encantan los plataformas y éste acababa de salir al mercado, así que me lo compré esperando una aventura tipo Spyro the Dragon o Bugs Bunny. Mi sorpresa fué general, pues aunque es una aventura en tres dimensiones, no se parecía en nada a lo que yo me imaginaba.
Summary: unos amigos mios me recomendaron este juegop y yo pense cuando me lo prestaron que iba a ser un juego para niños. y me equivoque. es un juego de plataformas 3-D de corte infantil pero de gran calidad. Me recuerda mucho al Spyro the Dragon. Sus gráficos son muy bonitos y coloridos. La historia se basa en dos niños que cuando duermen son trasladados a mundos llenos de peligros, como el espacio, cuevas, castillos... y deben de recorrerlos para volver a casas.
