Peggle

Peggle - Shoot and slide your way to Peggle mastery

Shoot and slide your way to Peggle mastery

Do you have what it takes to be a Peggle Master? Shoot and clear all the orange pegs in this peg-busting, critically acclaimed game, now fully optimized for Android devices. You’ll reach Extreme Fever as ten outlandish Masters help you achieve Peggle greatness. Take your best shot, conquer 55 levels, and wield ten magic powers in Adventure mode–and the fun is just getting started.

Catch the Fever

Whenever a ball hits a peg, it bounces away in the opposite direction at the same angle. Double-tap the screen to zoom in and fine-tune your shots for perfect aim, then fire! When you hit a peg, it disappears as soon as the ball falls out of play.

Access your gameplay options at any time from any level, and switch from right- to left-handed control. The cleverly designed colorblindness setting–which adds a triangle on the green pegs and a plus sign on the purple pegs–is a compelling and useful feature for all players, as a quick glance gives you a Zen-like grasp of a level’s most important pegs (just ask Master Hu).

Helpful Tips from the PopCap Team:

  • Try to hit the purple pegs in as many of your shots as possible (they’re 50 times more valuable than the blue pegs)
  • Clear all the pegs on the board to guarantee 100,000 points
  • If the going gets tough, hit one peg at a time and land each shot in the Free Ball Bucket

Meet the Masters

If you’ve made it through Adventure mode, congratulations–you’re a Peggle Master. But there’s a lot more Peggle to play. To succeed in dueling and beat the 40 Grand Master Challenges, you’ll need to summon all the strategies and skills you’ve learned along the way and choose the most helpful master.

Peggle - Meet the Masters

Are there a lot of tricky pegs? Are there lots of obstacles to maneuver around? Are the pegs evenly distributed? Are the pegs clustered close together? To choose a master, take a look at the level and decide on its most challenging aspect. Remember, there’s no timer, so there’s no need to rush. Think through your options, make a plan, and fire when ready.

It’s a compelling blend of luck and skill that msnbc.com calls one of the “Top 5 most addictive video games of all time!” Deceptively simple, unbelievably fun, Peggle’s a game you can’t put down. But with Amazon’s exclusive launch for Android phones, you can play Peggle wherever you go.

Product Reviews

“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. It’s nonviolent, very funny, incredibly charming and gently asks more of your brain than reflex. Peggle is always there, and always just-one-more-go.” 9/10

– Alec Meer, EuroGamer

“When it comes to puzzle games, there’s Peggle, and then there’s everything else. It’s got a wry sense of humor, a solid presentation, hours upon hours of content, perfectly balanced and nuanced gameplay, a great learning curve, excellent controls… and anyone can play it. Don’t miss this one, folks.”

– Steve Palley, SlideToPlay.com & GameSpot

“Honestly, I’m not sure who is responsible for more lost productivity in the U.S. each year, PopCap or rolling brownouts. Games often lose something when they’re ported over to a hand-held platform, but Peggle only gets better.”

– Daniel S. Evans, PCMag.com
