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

Players: You can play with 2 players in the same room and up to 4 players online. In Dual mode 2 players (local or online) take turns on the same board to score the most points. 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.
Peggle is free to start on iOS and Android, with in-game purchases for extra balls and power-ups to help you progress.
