David's Midnight Magic is a simple pinball game designed for 1-4 players. The game was modeled on the popular Black Knight pinball table released by Williams. Unlike Black Knight, however, David's Midnight Magic contains a mixture of bright colors. Featuring dual flipper controls, upper and lower playing fields, tilt mechanism, multiple ball play, electromagnetic deflectors, and many special effects, the game represents the first generation of home computer pinball simulations available with relatively realistic pinball features.

Cover art

In 1982 when Marc Ericksen was commissioned by the Carlston family to illustrate the David's Midnight Magic package art cover, the original concept sketch he drew showed that player's face reflected in the foreground on the floating chrome pinball. This was accepted, and that's how the game art was painted. When the game was adopted for Atari, they directed that the face be removed, on the grounds that it might have restricted a broader buying audience. Marc was paid to retouch out the face on the painting. All other iterations of the packaging followed suit, leaving the original Commodore 64 box as the only one showing the reflected face scene.
