Weird Dreams reviews

Zero Magazine Issue 3 (1990) - "Basically a scrolling arcade adventure with hugely impressive graphics and sounds. Unfortunately, it's the old story of 'hunt the gameplay'. It's not even that there isn't any gameplay there, just that it's put together badly. You can get killed as you reach the end of one of the screens, before it flips onto the next screen. Some of the sections are also extremely difficult and incredibly awkward.
All in all. Weird Dreams comprises of stunning graphics, vivid imagination and very little gameplay. Such is life."

Computer Gaming World issue 70 (1990): "Bizarre mazes of mental anguish will have you feeling a little bit out of your head every time you play Weird Dreams. The psycho-bizzaro background of this run, jump and chase game is an amusing element (bordering on either being a nightmare or "art"). Fortunately, rather than be frustrated, one can "buy" hints with which to escape the various traps and puzzles by running up the old psychiatric bill. (The title song for this game might be: "They tried to seize my wallet, but seized my brain instead".)."

Collector's corner:

The background story is told by a 64-page novella with 19 chapters written by Rupert Goodwins included in the box.
