The Atari Times
So enjoy this while you can, since pinball machines are, in the real world, dying out, along with arcades, unfortunately. But at least this isn't too difficult a cartridge to locate though, and it's pretty obvious why.
The Video Game Critic
Although the table looks sparse by modern pinball standards, there are enough targets to keep things interesting. It's a challenging game, especially on the "A" difficulty level. While I found Midnight Magic's gameplay to be somewhat fun and addicting, I was less impressed with the control. There's no nudge, and the flippers could be more responsive. Still, pinball fans will be satisfied with the overall quality.
Power Play
Etwas enttäuscht war ich schon, nachdem ich Midnight Magic ein paarmal gespielt hatte. Wo sind denn all die Extras hingekommen, die mich beim Original so begeistert haben? Im Vergleich zu „Pinball“ schneidet Midnight Magic aber besser ab. Zum Beispiel ist das Abprallverhallen der Kugel sehr realistisch. Hier haben sich die Programmierer zum Glück am Vorbild orientiert. Midnight Magic spielt sich ganz gut, auch wenn es nicht vollends überzeugen konnte. Nach längerem Flippern wird es etwas eintönig. Da aber für das VCS bis auf Pinball keine anderen Flipper-Simulationen angeboten worden, gibt es keine Alternative zu diesem Modul.
