OverviewOverview

In Peggle, you fire a small ball into an array of pins that are triggered and disappear when the ball touches them. It's like a bright, saccharine pachinko game. But being electronic you can earn all sorts of bonus balls and abilities by hitting particular combinations of pins.

The game has an Adventure mode here you work through fifty-five themed levels. The goal of each level is to clear the board of the twenty-five random pegs that are turned orange at the start of the level, by using a ball launcher located at the top centre of the screen to strike one or more of the pegs. Every five levels there is a new Peggle Masters character that grants a unique special ability: a second ball, show the ball's path, larger ball catcher.

Peggle is available on many systems:
  • Peggle (2007) on PC, Mac, DS, Xbox 360, PS3, iOS, Android
  • Peggle Nights (2008) on PC, Mac, Xbox 360, PS3

In Peg Party mode up to 4 players online get their own boards and compete to score the most. A bit like game/Tetris Tetris 99 you see small versions of the other players’ boards off to the side but you can't hamper their progress.

A controller cannot be used if playing on PC. Menu audio cues are present in the main menu but not in the pause menu during gameplay. It is easier to aim shots while on PC because the ball goes where the mouse cursor is placed.

On PC, menus are not analog and menu audio cues are present in the main menu but not in the pause menu during gameplay.

Audio cues indicate when taking a shot, hitting targets and when a level is completed. However there is no audible distinction between when hitting different coloured targets. Small text indicates when special bricks are hit and when the player performs combos.
