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 sort 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 (2007) on PC, Mac, DS, Xbox 360, PS3, iOS, Android
  • Peggle Nights (2008) on PC, Mac, Xbox 360, PS3
