Your mother kisses you goodnight and then you drift into dreams. Suddenly, you awake to find yourself in your room as before, but something is different – the room seems altered somehow. You grab your brother and go exploring through the house. Now you realize that something is truly wrong. Several of the rooms in the house now lead to crazy worlds and haunted houses. You contemplate investigating the levels when you realize that you must do it now.
The 40 Winks who provide people with a good sleep have been taken by the evil NiteKap, a bitter man whose goal is to make other people unhappy. He has let loose his HoodWinks so that they can run up trouble and nightmares for all. Now, as brothers Ruff and Tumble, you must save people’s dreams from the evil NiteKap and his HoodWinks.
