[PlayStation 4] Midnight Deluxe Review
Midnight Deluxe from Petite Games and Ratalaika games is now available on PlayStation 4. Learn more about this fun puzzle game in our Midnight Deluxe review!
In this game you play as a small glowing cube in a game that could best be described as a 2D golf platformer. Your aim for each stage is to get the tiny cube into the glowing hole by aiming your “shots” and deciding how much energy to use for each one. You’ll take on a whopping 70 levels, and you can complete most of them in a minute or two at most. There is no story for this one, placing all the focus on the gameplay.
If you’ve played 36 Fragments of Midnight, which is a 2D platformer I also reviewed, you’ll be familiar with the main character you control. This one is just as relaxing as 36 Fragments of Midnight, but it has more content and is, as I mentioned, more similar to a golf game than to a platformer. You’ll be graded for each stage with a three-star system, similar to what you’d find in, say, a mobile game. Getting all stars in the game is a must if you want to unlock a new Platinum trophy for your collection. Yes, you read that right: the game has a Platinum trophy!
Each of the 70 stages has a different layout and you might run into some hazards and traps you need to avoid, such as lasers, spikes, spinning buzzsaws, and more. In some stages you’ll need to carefully time your shots to make sure the cube goes over or under them, while in others there will be moving hazards that will require you to perfectly time your shots and the strength you use for each one or else you’ll be defeated. The music is very nice and soothing and it greatly fits the overall laidback and relaxing feel of the game.
Midnight Deluxe is a fun 2D golfing puzzle game with plenty of content to justify its $4.99 price. With 70 levels, half of which you’ll need to play more than once to get a three-star rating, you’ll spend close to at least 2 hours overall with this one… and then you’ll have a new Platinum trophy for your collection!
