Music seems ok (if you like piano), graphics are decent, but UI (user interface) is not. You gotta find for yourself how to reset/restart/quit level, no pause menu, or at least can't find it yet.

It would be "great" to see some key mappings in options menú at least, or simply getting some advise at first time playin telling us how to restart or quit game, cause ESC does nothing...

Game itself is quite slow, just tryal and error. Maybe some kind of reward would help keep playin this game.

Tested on Linux, game launched without problem.

I thoroughly enjoyed this puzzler. Learning the physics behind it can be quite challenging for getting the correct angle and speeds and the can make it frustrating at times but also rewarding when you succeed. I would rate this as a 6/7 out of 10 and if you like this type of game it is probably something you would enjoy.

Midnight is a calm, slow-paced golf based platform puzzler with a lot of spirit behind it.

The Concept
If you've played the mobile hit Flappy Golf or one of the dozens of knockoffs of it, you'll easily pick up Midnight. This game isn't as simple as some, however. You'll find that the shadowy eyes peering from each corner of levels and the streamlined guidance system are beautifully engineered, and it clearly shows the developers put thought into level design.

How it Works
You are graded on each level's performace with a 3 star system. This is where the only flaw in the game's design comes in. If you do not finish a level in the absolute lowest possible amount of moves, you won't get three stars - there's simply no leeway. However, it does in turn provide a challenging and rewarding setup to playing each level until you hit that perfect mark.

Performance
I did not play this game whatsoever on my gaming PC. Rather, I played it on my Retina MacBook with a Core M processor, and it runs absolutely great. Fullscreen visuals are stunning, as is to be expected, and there are no performance issues.

Controls
Simply put, they're simple and they work. A guideline will help you keep track of your shot, and there's plenty of ways to keep track of past attempts using said guideline.

Verdict
Buy it. Don't hesitate, it's a fantastic game that anyone looking for a casual "pick it up for 5m at a time" type game. In addition, you get 3 card drops, which are much more expensive than those that drop from most games, with these being anywhere from 12-20 cents each. If you get it on sale like I did, it pays for itself. All 3 cards drop within 2 hours of ingame time.

Hope a developer sees this, whenever i decide to close the game it wont appear to stop running at the very least and is making it difficult to use a number of steam features as a result too. I am currently playing it as i write this review as a matter of fact just thought i would try to bring this to your attention. good fun though :)

An enjoyable game to spend time playing. It has a nice looking, slowly animated background with optional background snow. The contrast between the dark and light, give it kind of an artsy feel, and the music matches up very well. The game runs just fine on my 10 year old laptop.

A very minor issues for me - the play speed I get is not even near half as fast as the video shows it being.

All in all, a very enjoyable game. Definitely recommended if you like these sort of games.

Am I the only one that can't even launch the damn game? I've tried launching the game over 20 times now since I bought it this past Thursday, (the 18th). I've emailed Petite games and all of there "solutions" were s h i t. Like try running the game from Steam, try running the game from the Steam folder in your computer, try uninstalling it and reinstalling it, etc. They haven't done anything really. I think I'm just going to ask for a refund. Just thought I'd let people know.

The art style is nice and I like the minigolf concept but the low resolution graphics makes me think this was meant for tablets or phones. I would like the ability to retry levels. Mostly though it just seems too simple for a PC game. It would be a good mobile game or maybe a browser game. ALso not a fan of the fact that the game never stops running when you try to quit it.

Fun little game with nice aesthetics that is fairly easy so far. After around 30 minutes I've made it to level 12, clearing all the levels with 3 out of 3 stars. However, as you progress new game elements like moving buzz saws or other obstacles are being introduced. Getting all the stars becomes increasingly difficult and quickly turns this game into a reset simulator. That said, if you don't care about getting all the stars you can progress considerably faster.

Midnight also features a short but beautiful, soothing piano track. I wish it wouldn't be interrupted everytime you reset a level, though.

A few things to note:

  • On first launch the game tries to connect to Google servers for unknown reasons. If you value your privacy, just block the game in your firewall and you're good to go.

  • The game process keeps running after you quit, resulting in Steam assuming you're still in-game and increasing your play time. Not only does this mess with your Steam stats, but it also might become relevant in case you don't like the game and want to refund it. So make sure to terminate the process after exiting the game.

All in all, this game is perfect to be played whenever you want to chill, or kill some time.

Highly addictive game. Fun?! Well, lets just say that it's frustrating as hell most of the time, but yeah, it's fun. You'll spend a lot of time trying to get that square, glowing, little B#%#@ in the hole...And swearing at that little bugger most of the time...Which in a way can be fun itself!
The graphics, great! Sound clean and crisp. Super LOVE the music and snow! (But the graphics with snow and music may be the only calming influences throughout the game!)
Recommend this game?! Yes, highly. We're gamers and we LOVE a good challenge!
But I will add, now I know why golfer's brake their clubs in two!...Enjoy the game!

Highly recommend this game! Beautiful, clean graphics, relaxing piano music, and 56 entertaining puzzles - yup, this is one of the best games to just chill out and test your problem solving skills. I'll be honest I'm not usually a puzzle gamer, but the creators made an irresistable atmosphere to play in. It made me feel like sneaking out at night as a child and playing in a field or jungle gym. Despite my occasional outbursts of "Gaaaaaaaaaaahh!", I'm looking forward to beating all the levels and getting a perfect 3/3!

TL;DR
Good gameplay with lots of problems surrounding it.
If you really like these kind of games and focus only on the gameplay, try it.
If you are a guy like me that likes some amount of eyecandy and overall working game, don't.

General graphics and options
It seemed like this was a fun little game to play and spend some spare time, initially I was pulled in by the aesthetics which made me purchase the game.
However upon starting the game I was greeted with really low resolution graphics and fixed on 16:9 (black bars left and right). I can get over the 16:9 fixation, since this is a 2D game and it needs a lot of work to make 21:9 supported. (Ori and the blind forest has this too, with a good reason.) I game on a 34" 3440x1440 (21:9) monitor and the jagged edges of the font and other graphics in game were really not pleasing on the eyes. First thing I did was go into the options which pretty much had nothing in there to actually make a difference to the game. There are only a few options total which adjust some ingame rendering settings.

Interface
How the interface works is pretty counterintuitive. After finishing the level, there are only 2 options: one being Save and Continue and the other Save and Quit. The perfection guy in me wanted to retry the level since I only got 1 star, but there was no option.
Going with the Save and Continue option (since I don't want to quit the game), I ended up in the next level, which I didn't want to! I expected to get to the level selection. Immediately I pressed Esc to get back to the menu, but it didn't do anything. I found myself going through every button on my keyboard to find out how to get some kind of menu with options. Eventually Q got me out to the level selection. Soon I found out that R is for restart.
(Note: a few levels farther, I think level 5, there were some instructions for Q and R. Which is pretty late.)

Exit bug
Exiting the game is not working correctly on my machine (Win10), the process keeps running and Steam keeps saying I'm still ingame. Leaving me with no other option than to manually kill the process.

Gameplay
Gameplay is exactly as shown, it's fun to spend some time. It plays like Angry Birds and other games alike. I like the dark setting and the art on the background, the lightbeams and shadows look fun and move really smooth. However, again really jagged edges/pixellated.

Sound
Then onto the sound, at first I thought, nice piano. But it got unbelievably repetitive even in the short time I played through multiple levels. Some sound effects seem really simple and a bit off. (Like the very loud piano bash when you hit a "monster" or fly off screen.)

Conclusion
I like the actual gameplay, good to make time pass. However, in my opinion, too immature development wise. It needs a lot of polishing for me to become a playable game. There are too many things that are quite frustrating and annoying that completely pull my focus away from the actual game.
I hope there will be some updates in the future.
