Atari 2600The 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.
Atari 2600The 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.
Simple mais efficace, ce logiciel est d'une présentation agréable : sur la moitié de l'écran, le tableau de jeu est des plus classiques.
Atari 2600Power 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.
Atari 8-bitAtari Gamer - XL-XE Game Review Edition
Midnight Magic has aged very badly indeed and it seems strange that Atari resurrected this for the XE range given they were aiming to compete with the likes of the NES and Sega Master System at the time. So if you want a pinball fix for the A8 then I suggest you look elsewhere, a good start would be the homebrew hack of this game that features the table from the 2600 version!
Atari 8-bitThe Video Game Critic
To be frank, there's not much to see or do. The table never changes, and apparently your only goal is to run up your bonus multiplier. There are four flippers, two on the top and two on the bottom, triggered by moving the joystick left or right. You can move all of them at once by pressing up, but too much of this could cause a tilt to occur. The physics isn't so hot. The ball seems to "stick" to the sides instead of caroming around, and the game has little sense of momentum or flow. Midnight Magic is a dull affair that really pales in comparison to so many other great Atari 8-bit titles out there.
