As an exercise in wit, Back to Bed excels wonderfully.

Back To Bed is a unique, fun puzzle game with some minor platforming thrown into the mix. It's another great indie puzzle game for the Switch that plays well on the go.

Other than small flaws, Back To Bed is an intriguing puzzle game that doesn't fail to keep you interested. However, its small length may make it a disappointment to some.

It's all a great big, quirky, hallucinogenic trip, filled to the brim with charm and potential. But, unfortunately, the game's endearing qualities accentuate my one criticism of it – it just isn't long enough.

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.

Ultimately, Back To Bed is just sorely missing content even at the already low purchase price. It's a great idea with some fantastic art and a few really cool puzzles… but that's it. If you enjoy puzzle games and like the aesthetic, then Back To Bed is still priced very well and worth your money. Not a lot of studios can really portray that surreal feeling, but Bedtime Digital absolutely has and their game stands out because of it. However if you're looking for a difficult puzzler that will take you longer than an hour or two, keep looking.

As a fan of art and games, I enjoyed my stint with Back to Bed. 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.

As simple as Back to Bed may seem, it's a satisfying puzzle game. Bob's dream sequences further enhance the experience with the inclusion of an appropriately fitting surreal art style. If you're in the mood for a fun and functional puzzle game, maybe consider this one.

The payoff for finishing the game isn't enough to make some of the levels worthwhile and it feels like Back to Bed is selling itself short by being constricted to just two campaigns.  That said, Back to Bed is reasonably priced and if you're a fan of the art-style mentioned or want something a little different to play for a few hours then there's value here.

While this means in total the game offers 60 puzzles I felt while playing it that I could play it for much longer - there was a lot of room for the developers to come up with more puzzles. That being said, thanks to the game's narrative being told through cut scenes that do break with the action, I don't think there was room to expand on the levels without compromising the quality of the narrative by adding in unnecessary padding. Perhaps we can get more content in a sequel.
