Peggle Dual Shot is the most addictive game I've played in 26 years.

In My Experience

Squash on the Binatone Grandstand 1984 - that was the last time I was this hooked on a game. Peggle is a phenomenon that passed me by until our esteemed editor pinged me a copy of this. As a result, I'm several reviews behind schedule and many hours of sleep worse off... this game is immense. Simple, challenging, loveable, addictive, fun, casual, serious and so much more - all at once. Basically it's a game where you shoot 10 balls onto a series of pegs on the screen which deflect the balls like pinball with any hit pegs disappearing each turn and the need to remove all red pegs. Hit other coloured pegs though, and special moves and items come into play, meaning the game changes rapidly. And with various patterns and effects courtesy of each Peggle Master you encounter - the game just keeps on giving.

Last Word

Such a simple game but oh, so addictive. It's easy to grab 10 minutes out of your day and play a level to see if you can clear it or better your score. And yes, there is an element of luck with the game but you never feel out of control or cheated of victory.

I've still only completed 60%

Quote

If you own a Nintendo DS, get this game. Itís as simple as that.

"I remember watching and waiting for Teletext pages to tell me the latest and greatest video game news in the 80s and 90s. What better way then, to review the best of those old games with some choice new titles here and there."

Here are the games I've been playing recently:

With so many different perspectives it can be hard to know where to start - a little like walking into a crowded pub. Sorry about that.

But so far we've not found a way to streamline our review output - there's basically too much of it. So, rather than dilute things for newcomers we have decided to live with the hubbub while helping new readers find the columnists they will enjoy.

What sort of gamer are you?
