Peggle on DS 360 IPHONE PC IPOD

Peggle Screen Shots

Peggle is a Platforming game available on the DS 360 IPHONE PC IPOD. It can be played in Singleplayer modes.

Peggle is a Platforming game. Platform games task you with getting from point A to point B. The world you journey through is usually based on different levels, and populated with enemies, switches and lifts to be negotiated. As you work through each level you pick up various collectables that accrue score, special abilities and access to hidden areas.

Peggle can be played in a Singleplayer mode. Single Player Campaign games focus on one player's experience. Rather than collaborate with other players either locally or online, players progress alone. The campaign style of gameplay offers a connected series of challenges to play through. These chapters work together to tell a story through which players progress. Single player games are able to focus on one experience of a scenario, so that it is usually a richer, more visceral game.


We have our reporters and community keeping an eye on Peggle for you, and we'll keep you up to date with the latest developments as they happen.

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

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.

Multiplayer Gamer review Thu, 25 Feb 2010

Peggle on the 360's XBLA is an enjoyable if short lived experience in solo format that becomes an addictive, compelling puzzler once you're online and multiplaying against the rest of the world.

I only set one rule for myself for these reviews: absolutely no solo play whatsoever. But the leaflet that serves as a rule book in my house has had to be torn up since Peggle arrived. It would have been no trouble at all to start playing online against others right away, but I couldn't help but have 'just one go' at the solo adventure. I only meant to have a very quick five minutes to familiarise myself with the controls, and then all of a sudden it was half an hour later and I'd completed all ten challenges laid down by all ten Peggle Masters.

Touch Gamer review Mon, 27 Jul 2009

For any ostriches out there who haven't yet encountered it, PopCap's Peggle is a sort of cross between pinball and Puzzle Bobble in which you fire a limited number silver balls from a cannon at the top of the screen into a field of coloured pegs below, which disappear on contact.

The object is to remove all twenty five orange pegs, while points, bonuses and special powers are gained by removing blue, purple and green pegs respectively. At the bottom a bucket moves from side to side which will retain any balls that fall in. It's a simple concept, but one which is brought to delightful fruition.

Peggle is the perfect game for pinball fanatics who like pinball simulations with a twist, millions of points, and plenty of challenges.

This review would have been ready much earlier if it wasn't for Peggle. I had to convince myself that now is the time to write about this game rather than to play it - it is just that awesome!

This new DS version promises to bring Bjorn the Unicorn back into my life and it proved to be just as criminally addicting as ever. I thought I'd beaten the addiction back in 2006 when my PC turned into a Peggle machine. My five minute breaks snowballed into mammoth five hour sessions before I had to physically remove the game from my system.

Peggle is a cuter, friendlier version of pinball that's overdosed on sweats. You shoot a ball from the top of a board into a field of coloured pegs. Hitting and clearing all the orange pegs advances you to the next level whilst the blue pegs help you to earn more points. Levels are divided up into character chapters. Each character (the charming Unicorn or wise Owl) have certain power-ups to help you clear the board if you can hit a green peg.

Audio Gamer review Tue, 17 Mar 2009

Here is my musical review of Peggle Dual Shot on the DS, I've called it 'Layers'.

This is not a game for serious gamers and at first the direction my lyrics were taking was: this game is a waste of time. But then I became interested in the idea that for many people this game is some kind of secret habit, not just for housewives/husbands who are playing it instead of folding washing, or children who are playing it instead of doing their homework but also for serious gamers who are playing it instead of playing something that takes some skill.

As other puzzle games were becoming more complex, involved and skill based, Peggle was a breath of fresh air. Its simple Pachinko machine chance based play mechanic meant it easy to play by almost anyone. This accessibility was then enhanced by its release on the PC and iPod, rather than hard core gaming platforms. Such was its success that it is now available on most games machines.

Puzzle games pose the player a problem to solve, and then provided a limited set of tools with which to solve it. This can be as simple as arranging 2D blocks on top of each other, or as complex as balancing objects in a 3D environment.

One of the best kept secrets of the casual gaming world are iPod games. These little gems can be purchased from the iTunes store and provide bona fide gaming experiences. Such was the response to our column that I have started to review some of these games.

The Japanese have long had a love affair with the path of sliver balls through a field of pins set out in coin operated machines. Downtown Tokyo sees arcades with row upon row of Pachinko machine. Pachinko, I am told by Wikipedia, is 'a Japanese gaming device used for amusement and prizes. Although pachinko machines were originally strictly mechanical, modern pachinko machines are a cross between a pinball machine and a video slot machine.' Peggle takes this simple concept and makes it accessible for the western masses.
