"Right from the first the game's very tough - hair-tearingly, nailbitingly so at times - and it never lets up. and while repeated play does result in some progress, the game's difficulty far outweights its addictiveness, and you may jack it all in long before you reach the fourth world." - ACE magazine

The PC versions of the game used a rather primitive copy protection system where the game would ask for a password after the first level. The password could be obtained by referencing a password sheet shipped with the game.

Magic Pockets also appeared as competition on the Saturday morning kids TV shows Motormouth and Going Live!. The caller would watch the game on their TV screen at home and shout the instructions walk, jump and fire on the former show, and using a tone pad on their phone to directly control the character on the latter.
