    Almost everything about Back to Bed seems designed with the player in mind, from the quirky narration to its speed-up button to the minimal punishment for failure. The re-purposed Surrealist objects create a unique dreamscape that is a treat to wander, and Nightmare mode provides a surprising amount of replay value.

    It looks gorgeous, but Back to Bed is actually a fairly simple and uneventful puzzle game.

    Back to Bed has a relatively small target audience with decisions that were made to emphasize visuals over gameplay, but for that audience there is a lot of appeal.

    The gameplay is not very original and the control are simple, but sometimes they feel very uncomfortable. Some puzzle are extremely simple, while some others are way too difficult. Overall, the environment and the atmosphere are very nice.

    There's a nice idea here, but the cumbersome controls mean Back to Bed gets tiring pretty quick.

    Back to Bed is bursting with style, but lacking in game execution to make it one to skip despite all that’s included. The game squanders the promising nature, and goodwill that is builds up.

    Back to Bed is practically oozing with visual charm, but it can't back it up with weak gameplay and a lack of replay value. Perhaps the developers should have slept on it a bit longer.
