What is Sleepwalker – toyworld?

Sleepwalker is a puzzle game that borrows heavily from Back to Bed. You control a sleepwalker that is only able to walk in straight lines, your task is to make sure he gets through the door in each of the levels in this game. While the sleepwalker can only move in straight lines, the player controls which direction he walks in. The challenge is to complete each level in the allotted number of moves. One wrong turn, and it’s game over.

Recommendation

Sleepwalker – toybox isn’t bad, but there are better puzzle experiences out there. Each level has a correct way of solving it, and a single misstep means game over. That just doesn’t feel as satisfying as having a game with a 3 star rating system based on the completion efficiency. It also takes away any incentive to replay a level after finishing it. There is also an issue with the UI being cut off on certain devices. In my case the pause button was almost entirely off of the screen (see screenshot). At the end of the day, Sleepwalker is an average game. If you have exhausted Android’s library of excellent puzzle games (check out 5 great puzzles), Sleepwalker is worth a download. If not, check out titles like Back to Bed or Lara Croft: GO, which offer a similar but better experience than this game.
