Description Edit | History

Midway Games, Inc. (formerly Midway Manufacturing) was an American corporation in bankruptcy since 2009. Founded as an amusement game manufacturer, it became a video game publisher and developer in 1973. Midway published and developed titles such as Mortal Kombat, Ms. Pac-Man, Spy Hunter, Tron, Rampage and NBA Jam. Midway also acquired the rights to video games that were originally developed by Williams Electronics and Atari Games, such as Defender, Joust, Robotron 2084, Gauntlet and the Rush series.
