    Back to Bed is a visual upgrade from its mobile brethren, but it still maintains the quick, casual fun that the mobile side sported. If you like a decent puzzle game, this might be worth looking at on the PlayStation 4.

    The conversion from mobile to console is perhaps only noticeable in its length, but the surreal art style wowed me, especially on a big screen. It is a tiny game with a unique, yet brief and understated impact.

    The artwork and style in Back To Bed is exceptional and fits everything together quite nicely. It’s sort of a mix of claymation and painting with a ton of surreal moments and settings.

    Back to Bed is a game that will keep you occupied for a short time. The design is something to be admired, but if you’re looking for a more engaging experience, I’d go elsewhere.

    The cartoony, minimalist graphics and eye-catching presentation will hold your attention, but like a fanciful daydream, the breezy experience will abruptly end, leaving you sighing in disappointment as you snap back to reality and stow away its pleasant aspects at the back of your mind for a good, long while.

    I found Back to Bed to be a fairly short, simplistic puzzle game that works competently but is just never quite challenging or interesting enough.

    Back to Bed is the worst kind of game: one that flirts with some good ideas, but never commits to doing anything with them. The core apple-dropping mechanic gets old fast, and while the graphics look great, they’d be better served in a different, more interesting game.

    Back to Bed is a challenging and whimsical puzzle game featuring environments inspired by the surreal artwork of such renowned modern artists as M.C. Escher, Salvador Dali and René Magritte. In Back to Bed, players take on the role of Subob - the dog-like manifestation of sleepwalker Bob's subconscious - who must guide him through increasingly challenging dream-like levels with the goal of ushering the sound asleep Bob back to bed.

    A mind bending and clock bending puzzle game
    Back to bed is a puzzle game where you guide a sleep walker back to bed.
    You do this by placing apples in his way to force him to change his path
    along your way you’ll run into obstacles such as alarm clocks, whale trains, dogs, and manholes.
    You can fall off of the edge as many times as you wish, but run into anything that can way the sleeper up and you have to retry,
    The game really does a great job of slowly spoon feeding you difficulty…
    You are introduced to the mind warping optical allusions, fish you can make bridges with, and mouths that of course blow the sleep walker over to a new path.
    Unfortunately though I don’t believe there is enough real meat to the game
    I feel like the game is a tad bit under developed in the sense of continuing to innovate to keep you hooked.
    It would have been really neat to have been thrown into more than just 2 different dreams worlds, if the team really played with the dream theme beyond the stereotypical weird geometrics and melting clocks.
    perhaps go into different dream cycles.
    Maybe my vision for the games potential is far beyond what this game was intended to be in the first place.
    a simple mobile puzzle game.
    Not here to really do anything other than stump you and tease your brain.
    You can complete the games 30 levels easily in about an hour.
    After you have completed the fairly simple story mode, you can replay all 3 levels in nightmare mode, and this time, things aren’t so simple.
    Not only do you have to guide the sleepwalker through the familiar 30 levels, you now have to guide him to 1, 2 or, even 3 keys to unlock his door.
    This is really where the challenge is at, and where the game is at beyond the initial experience.
    If you love stressing your brain out, Back to Bed will provide some pretty relaxing brain stimulation.
