There’s an interesting casual game hitting the Nintendo Switch, PS4, and PS Vita this week called, Midnight Deluxe. It’s a sort of Angry Birds type twist on a puzzle/golf game where the player must strategize how to perfectly catapult a little square shaped Fairy to the end of a level, all the while avoiding pitfalls like spikes and saws.
The gameplay is simple yet challenging. There are 70 levels, each harder than the previous, scored by 1-3 stars. The environment is eerily dark, enveloped in beautiful piano music which is contagiously hypnotic, making it a perfect “end of the workday” game.
MD was developed by Petite Games who’s very familiar with the golf genre, having created another take on the sport, Infinite Golf. Midnight Deluxe is also a follow-up to the Switch game released last year, 36 Fragments to Midnight, but with different gameplay. And, interestingly enough, part of the levels in the MD game originated from Midnight 1 and 2 on the WiiU.
The game will be sold digitally at a regular retail price of $4.99. If you purchase the PS4 or PS Vita version, you’ll be able to play on both systems. The Switch version is available on the Nintendo eShop and is on sale until March 18th for $3.99.
You can see a Trailer for Midnight Deluxe on the YouTube channel of the game’s publisher, Ratalaika Games.
You can also hear a quick review of the PS Vita version on Sandeep Rai’s (2 old 4 Gaming) YouTube channel. Speaking of Mr. Rai, he’s in process of writing a book about the PS Vita that hit Kickstarter a couple of weeks ago. We interviewed Mr. Rai about his new project, which you can read here.
