  1. When your ball approaches the level-clearing peg, the view zooms in tight on the action. Time slows and a timpani drum roll slaps a 50-point accent mark over the tension. As orb and target collide, the rapturous hosannas of Beethoven's "Ode To Joy" explode out of the speakers. Few games make winning feel this good.
  2. An ode to joy is exactly what Peggle is. It's a constant series of rewards, slapping you on the back and tickling you affectionately under the chin for what you achieve by design and accident alike - the purest of celebrations of what videogames are all about.
  3. Peggle is probably the biggest surprise game of the year for me so far. Normally, I avoid PopCap stuff because it is so simple and makes me want more 15 minutes in. Peggle, however is different – while it is simple and seems to not offer much on the surface, there’s a whole other game buried deep within for the hardcore gamer.
  4. Definitely one of the better casual games of 2009!

    Addictive play for the score junkie and a fun distraction for a while. [June 2008, p.83]
  7. There’s just something hypnotic seeing where the ball will go next, the bright colors and the hope that a high score will be broken.

We'll now spend almost 45 minutes a night playing in Duel mode. The game is just pure candy. Over the top fun. Simple concept, built gradually to be more challenging, all with super fun rewards that are so sugar coated it makes your teeth hurt. Tons of Fun. Expand

    AWESOME GAME! Best game I have ever played and I can't stop playing it. Peggle is the only thing that keeps me sane. As everyone around AWESOME GAME! Best game I have ever played and I can't stop playing it. Peggle is the only thing that keeps me sane. As everyone around disowns me and society rejects me from itself, Peggle is the only thing that has stayed with my through thick and thin. If it was not for Peggle I would of long ago taken my life as this is all I live for now. When I was diagonised with cancer and aids, playing Peggle got me through these tough times. The hole that was left torn out of me when I had to go to rehap concerning Maria Kart, Peggle has filled this hole. Also when I was in Northern Italy, Skiing in the Alps, during a tough period of my life when I was stranded in the ice cold for 3 days waiting for rescue, corned in a cave by a pack of wolves, thinking of playing Peggle was the only thing that kept me going. When I play Peggle it reminds me of the days when I was still a part of a real family that loved me and I had real friends. In conclusion I think that this game is pretty good and well worth £6.

    While the game is humorous and is fun for the first minute or two, the slot machine type gameplay easily dulls your brain after a couple While the game is humorous and is fun for the first minute or two, the slot machine type gameplay easily dulls your brain after a couple plays. If there were some more interactivity after you launch the ball the game could have been much more enjoyable. Expand
