Description40 Winks is a 3D action-platform game in which you play as Ruff or Tumble, two children who must battle ghosts, goblins and other monsters in their dream-world. They must try to capture 40 winks scattered around the world in order to stop an evil old man named Nitekap. Nitekap wants to turn the winks into hood-winks, the things responsible for nightmares. You also have to find the 12 dream keys to unlock the boss level. A unique aspect of the game allows the players to temporarily morph into different costumes with special abilities. The costumes include a Prehistoric Man, Jester, Super Hero, and Ninja.

Cover QuoteIf you examine the front cover of the U.S. Playstation cover for this game, you will notice a quote from an issue of Nintendo Official Magazine that says "Move Over Mario...". The reason for this somewhat humorous blurb is that a N64 version of 40 Winks was planned to be released, but eventually was canceled. But before the N64 version of the game got canceled, it was reviewed by Nintendo Official Magazine, which then resulted in a Playstation exclusive game using a Nintendo quote to downplay a Nintendo character.
