Parents, what have you been giving your kids for supper? 40 Winks is what your children experience in their dreams, so no more nutmeg before bedtime, okay? This is disturbing stuff, just keep telling yourself, it's only a game.

The object of the game is for the kids, Ruff or Tumble (parents these days!), to rescue the titular winks, which are essential for staying asleep and dreaming sweet dreams. Mr Nitekap, insomniac and archetypal bad egg with ugly henchmen in tow, has taken all the winks for himself. None shall sleep until the winks are returned.

The winks are scattered around your dreams, but you don't have to run around aimlessly to find out where they are. There's a friendly old alarm clock to offer help and advice on where to go and what to do next.

It's a shame that 40 Winks is just a one player game, you have to choose between the two children, it would be nice if you could bring in a friend and work together to foil that nasty Mr Nitekap. A lot of thought has gone into this game, it's better than the average puzzle adventure, and it's soft focus look is easy on the eye. Definitely a hit for the younger end of the market, and all that guff about it being disturbing stuff? Just kidding, 40 Winks is as cute as an Andrex puppy, as sweet as a Chupa Chup. Even adults like puppies and lollipops.
