Midnight is an exclusive downloadable only Wii U home console video
game. It fits under what we generally call a flinger. There are numerous
physics based flingers on the app stores. In Midnight we take our Pong
ball and direct where it will be launched and with how much force.
Since there are twenty-eight levels in Midnight you can guess it gets hard around the midway point.Things like spikes and chain saws get into our way. One mistake in Midnight and you have to start the level over again. Which is nice in some ways since we are graded on how many moves we make.
The goal in Midnight is to complete the levels in as few moves as possible. Players are granted one, two, or three stars based on how they did. I was happy to beat some levels. Especially when I had to guess about where to launch and how hard. Going back and forth in levels can be frustrating, since it can be hard to remember what was successful the first time.
I learned one important thing in Midnight. The edges of the screen are not always walls. I flung my white little block too far a couple of times. It wasn't pleasant. Speaking of unpleasant things, you will have to retry certain levels over and over again. This can cause real world anger.
Midnight has great music that soothes the savage beast. It can help you take a knee and focus on what needs to be done. I wish Midnight had some kind of guide that showed the last thing tried. I would launch too far, and then not far enough. Finding that perfect balance was rarely easy.
At the time this review was written Midnight is selling for $1.99. This is a very fair price for a game like this one. Families will get their two dollars worth out of Midnight. I believe sequels to this Wii U home console game would be a good idea. Especially if a few more things are done graphically. Like that ball we roll down to a switch should have been some different color.
