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.

While the game stands tall from a presentation aspect, where it lacks most is in the act of playing it. Puzzles offer some clever ideas, but they never truly explore how far each idea could be pushed which results in a simple game that never challenges the player. This might appeal to a casual puzzle fan, but it certainly won’t scratch the itch for veterans of the genre.

After all that I don’t think there’s a whole lot more I can say. After the story is finished you can replay the levels with a higher difficulty. You collect keys and then get to the end, but I never found myself wanting to go back through it. The game works, it just isn’t all that fun. As far as music there really isn’t much to talk about. It’s very painfully okay ambiance. The only issue with it, besides it not feeling inspired, is that you can’t manually adjust the volume in the options menu. Just mute it or have it on full blast. It really feels like a mobile game that was ported to home consoles and the PC just for the sake of it. Even for $5.99 I can’t really recommend it, not for two hours of fairly okay puzzles. There’s just nothing to sink your teeth into.

Back to Bed is a game crafted with care that sometimes gives the impression of wanting to drown you in references to painting, more than wanting to surprise you with original levels or ideas.

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.
