Monkey Magic (モンキー・マジック) is a 1979 arcade game by Nintendo. It is a Breakout clone and one of Nintendo's earliest arcade games. Some sources[1][2][3] claim that Ikegami Tsushinki also did design work on Monkey Magic. Players control a paddle to hit the ball at a large amount of blocks shaping a monkey's face. Players can also earn different amounts of points by catching blocks that fall, as well as hitting the ball in different places.
