Peggle (Series) Review
Posted: 16 months ago, last updated 3 weeks ago.
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.

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.
