Midnight Magic is a game released for the Atari 2600. It is loosely based on both the Video Pinball arcade game and David's Midnight Magic, a pinball game simulation created for home computers.

Gameplay[edit | edit source]

Playfield resembles a standard pinball machine with bumpers, rollovers, and targets. Pull the joystick handle towards you and press the joystick button to launch balls. Move the handle left to activate the left flippers, right to activate the right flippers, and back to activate both flippers at the same time.

Unlike Video Pinball, there is no nudge feature in this game, so you can't tilt the machine.
