So, what exactly is this game all about? Well it’s got platforms and that familiar trope of traps that will kill in one hit. But it’s not a traditional platform game. In a world of perpetual darkness, the square shaped fairy named Midnight.
The players goal is to reach the safe zone in each of the games 70 levels which get progressively more challenging the further you get. How you do it though is another thing. Instead of moving Midnight at your will, you need to use your aim and a fire button to catapult our bright fairy friend in the right direction.
A Paupers Challenge
Midnight offers very little in the way of a challenge and instead allows the free flowing nature of progression. Don’t get me wrong, there are some levels that are tricky, but none are impossible by any means.
The package of graphics and soundtrack are pleasing to the senses, giving you a feeling of relaxation as you fly through the levels. Quite literally too. Yes it’s a short game, one that can be done completed in under a couple of hours.
Probably sooner should you be in it for them achievements/trophies. But given how pretty the game looks in the darkly lit levels, and the low price point, you’d be a fool to pass it up.
Overall Score: 6.3 / 10
There really isn’t much else to say about Midnight Deluxe, so I’ll wrap it up now. It is cheap to buy, fun to play and offers hunters an easy list that can be unlocked in under an hour, so what’s not to like?
