Midnight (Wii U eShop)

Guru Undead_terror here to talk about Midnight for the Wii U, this is a puzzle adventure game published by Petite Games, it costs $1.99 US and needs 46 MB to download.


Midnight is a pretty simple game all around, the story/main adjective is that you must guide a little square shaped fairy called Midnight throughout each of the 28 levels, avoiding danger and trying to get a 3 star rating in each, that's pretty much it. Midnight is a easy to pick up game and easy to play, not too long of a game and most if not all can be done in one sitting.


As said you must beat 28 levels and get a 3 star rating in each, it isn't much but it will take a few tries to beat a level and then to get a 3 star rating, you must send Midnight flying throughout the midnight sky, avoiding all sorts of dangers like saws, spikes, creatures, wall-less sides, etc. With the gamepads touch screen you must drag the stylus to adjust the angle and launch power that will move Midnight, if you played games like Angry birds then you will know how the controls will work, there is a white light that Midnight must land to complete the level.


The art style in Midnight is pretty neat and nice to look at, you got a lovely drawn background with a tree, grass, the night sky and falling down sparkles, it's nice to look at but this is the only background image used throughout the whole game. The foreground where all the action takes place is black, to resemble the nights darkness which looks like the style used in the indie game called Limbo, you can see Midnight fine as she is a glowing white square, but everything else besides some eyes is completely dark. The game doesn't have much audio besides some music, music is ok for the most part but nothing you would care about if it was on or not.


There isn't a whole lot of content the game has to offer but it does have some challenge, as said you must beat each of the 28 levels with the lowest amount of moves as possible to get a 3 star rating, there is a few puzzles here and there, it will take some time getting use to each stage but a problem I had with the game was getting use to the launch power, sometimes it seems you launch weaker then expected, most of the times you are better off just launching at the max that you can, there is no indication where Midnight will land but I guess that's part of the challenge. Another thing to note is that some said that there is a few glitchs in the game, however I never came accross any glitchs.

At the end of the day there isn't much to say about Midnight, it's a ok little game that seems to take from some free games like Angry Birds or random flash games, the game has some challenge to 100% complete it but once you finish it then there is nothing to bring you back, making you delete the game for extra memory to download something else, but it's a ok experience while playing.


Rating: 5/10
