Peggle Deluxe is a casual game that takes fun to new levels, its objective is simple, but its execution can be frustrating. With 10 different characters, all with rewarding power ups makes this game a jem among dirt. Completing this game is an amazing sight, but the fun doesn't end there, once you complete the game you unlock Dual and Challenge mode.

Perfect Twitch & Chill game

Peggle might look like a kid’s game but the game is more complex then what it appears on the surface and a great game to just relax to and play on the side. As you play through the game you begin realize there is more to it than just hitting red pegs and completing the level. There’s strategy, timing and angles involved for those who do the Challenge levels which I'll get into in a bit. Combo's are a huge part of this and can result in massive scores and free balls by going for pink pegs (Score boost), green pegs (your peggle masters ability) and hitting enough pegs to build up your combo meter.

Adventure mode
There are 50 Adventure mode levels split between 10 different peggle masters and 5 master levels at the end.
The Adventure mode is designed to teach you the different "Peggle Masters" aka characters and their abilities.
Different characters abilities are better for curtain scenarios depending on what your strategy is.

Challenge mode
There are 75 Challenge mode levels which require you to complete the specific level in a particular way, the further you progress through the challenge levels the harder they get. Towards the last 15 or so they become very hard and only the best/luckiest players have a chance at beating them. Some examples of levels I had a very hard time beating and got a little lucky when I did beat them were "Complete a level starting with only 1 ball", beat a master AI score over 3 levels, score 750k over 3 levels etc. Ones that I tried and just couldn't do are like "Score 1 mil over 3 levels, "score 750k in a single level" and "beat 10 levels in a row".... yeah no thanks. In total I beat 70/75 challenges which is good enough for me.

Quick Play and Duel are a waste of time, you get to do some duels anyway in the challenge mode.

9.2/10
- Hours of content, Relaxing gameplay and challenging high end levels

An all-time classic casual game that anyone can play and everyone has fun.

If you somehow haven't tried Peggle, you owe it to yourself to get Peggle (or one of the bundles that include it) when on sale. It's a fabulous little casual game that adults and kids enjoy.

I've loved this game ever since I was little, and recently discovered it on steam. I bought it, opened it, played it, and closed it. Now, it won't open again. A "fatal error" shows up every time I try. Wonderful game, but too bad I can't actually play it.

I normally play competitive games, and if i ever get ♥♥♥♥♥♥ off at a couple of losses i'll jump on this game and smash a few pegs here and there, it's a very simple game: hit the pegs with a ball, each character has a different ability to use and the game includes plenty of challenges past the basic story mode. All we need now is Peggle 2 on PC!

Wow!, what a colorful and addicting game this is. When I first played Peggle several years ago it took me back to the old arcade games I used to play when I was a kid, standing on the pier spending all of my money on those machines. That game was called Pachinko, (where you send a metal ball bearing spinning around a series of peg like mazes, trying to get your ball to drop into various cup like recepticles on the board) and it is still all the rage over in Japan where whole arcades are devoted to the game.

Peggle has become one of my favorite 'short term' arcade games of the last decade barring Ricochet Infinity and Gish. What I mean by short term, is the ability to play for just a few moments in between other games, or when on a coffee break from more important things. With Peggle, you have to attempt to knock out all the orange pegs from various arrays of blue and orange pegs (55 levels in the adventure mode) using a ball launcher/cannon that fires a ball from the top of the game board. You get 10 balls to clear the board of the orange pegs. If you can clear the whole board of both orange and blue pegs plus any special pegs, you get extra bonus points. There's a bucket like object that is constantly on the move at the bottom of the board. If your ball falls into this you get your ball back which in turn makes it easier to complete the round. There's also more points gained depending where your ball finally comes to rest, with a jackpot score of 50K from the central well, 25K from the two adjacent wells and 5K from the outer wells. The first time you fail to hit any pegs you will get your ball back, but this only happens once on each board. Each new board includes two green pegs that give you one of several special powers when you clear them away. These can help you clear the orange pegs away easier, for example you may get a double ball that enables yopu to clear away a lot more pegs, especially if you get it early on in the level (as more pegs get in the way), or extend the length of the ball catcher to give you a greater chance of catching the ball and getting it returned to the ball launcher or a marker that shows you where your ball will bounce. Some of the powers come into effect immediately (like the double ball which only lasts for that turn) or on the next turm that last for the next three turns; (the latter power is very useful for aiming your ball for maximum effect). Each of these specials continues through several levels before changing to a new power, that are introduced via Peggle Masters. There's also a purple peg that when hit gives you bonus points. Each time you flick a new ball, the purple peg changes position. Scoring over 250 000 on one board gains you an extra ball as well.

There's four different modes included with the PC version, Adventure mode with 55 levels spread over 10 stages, quick play, which allows you to play any board you've already unlocked, duel that allows you to play against either the computer or a friend (with the X-Box version you can play online against up to 4 players) and finally theres the challenge mode, which has 75 harder levels and is locked until you've completed the adventure mode.

There's two different versions of the game available on Steam, Peggle Deluxe and Peggle Nights, both of which are well worth buying if you like arcade games. Sadly there's no level editor, but Steam do have a free version Called Peggle Extreme that features levels dedicated to Half-Life 2, Portal and Team Fortress. There's only ten levels with one special (also known as Peggle Masters), and five Challenge levels, but it's enough to gives you an introduction to the game. It's more like a demo, but is different to the two commercial versions, so is worth getting if you like the game. I think they also made a second free themed version that's not available on steam, but I've forgotten what the theme was.

The beauty of this game for me is that it never gets boring. The levels are vibrant and enjoyable to play; each time I replay the adventure mode or replay levels via the quick play mode the game is never the same and it's great playing against friends or family, sadly it's only local play on the same computer and you share the 10 balls. If you play against the computer you can select one of four difficulty modes.

The game is only £4.99 on steam in the UK or $4.99 in the US (it's cheaper to get a freind in the US to buy it for you if you live in Europe). I oriignally paid $20 for each version via Reflexive Arcade when it was first released seven years ago.

You can see a video speed run of the whole game HERE (it's 2hr 14mins in length), which gives you the opportunity to skip ahead and check out all of the various levels available in the deluxe version or you can check out the free Peggle Extreme version HERE

Peggle is a fun casual game. It's very straightforward. Aim for the orange pegs. Hit the green ones to get various power ups that change every few levels. The power ups are all very different and keep things interesting. Some are not as useful as others like the lobster claw flippers. Each power up makes you think differently about how to approach a level.

As straightforward as the gameplay is, Peggle isn't simple. You only have 10 moves to clear all the orange pegs and it's difficult to predict just where your ball may bounce at times. Most of the time the results are what you aim for, but sometimes the judging an angle slightly wrong can turn into a wasted ball. Other times, you might just get a layout that works against you. While the design is always the same, the placement of orange pegs varies. But that's the challenge of Peggle.

There are 55 levels in the game, so plenty to play through. You can always replay levels of your choice later outside of story mode to try your hand at clearing the entire playing field of all blocks.

I wouldn't really consider Peggle a largely re-playable game. I played through story mode twice on a non-Steam version of the game, and playing through again on Steam didn't really hold my interest. But I would definitely consider this a great game for at least one or two playthroughs that is worth it's price point.

The only negative aspect of this game is the resolution, which is low and doesn't stretch to fit widescreen monitors.

I played this game to 100% completion in college. My laptop then died and lost all my local content. I replayed it to 100% completion again. I then bought it on Xbox 360 and completed just the story then. I then bought an Xbox One with the main purpose of playing Peggle 2.

Peggle Deluxe is very good.

It's nice to play Peggle anytime. You can play it as a quick break. You can play it while watching tv that doesn't require total focus (sports). You can play it while listening to podcasts.

Play Peggle. Join us.
