Peglin is an adventure game where you fight monsters and other enemies by scoring points in a Pachinko machine below the world. Like Peggle, you collect special orbs that deal damage to enemies by bouncing the ball into pegs. In this way you go on an unusual hunt to head into the woods, conquer fortresses, and delve into the heart of the dragon's lair to take back your gold.

Play involves first firing the ball into the field of pegs to maximise your points. You then use these to attack your enemies. Along the way you can acquire relics that offer special benefits and abilities.

It's a hard game where you are likely to die. If you're defeated your run is over, but you keep the orbs and relics to help you on your next attempt. It's an unusual combination of Peggle and Slay the Spire.

Content Rating

This game has not yet been rated, but we anticipate it is likely to be rated PEGI 3.

Skill Rating

6+ year-olds usually have the required skill to enjoy this game. The simple aiming of balls at the pachinko board is not highly skilled and enables youngsters to enjoy the game. The skill is in deciding how you apply the currency and upgrades you earn and unlock. There is also some strategy of how to use the different balls (and related abilities) to the best effect.


Peglin usually costs £15.49. 


There are no additional in-game purchases, loot boxes, adverts or subscription costs.
