What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“An early access release of Zeke's Peak will allow us to gather feedback on the current gameplay and interaction mechanics to identify any improvements which could make the public release the best it can be. This early access release includes a variety of game modes with over 70 levels, and we will be gathering data on which game modes are the most fun for users. Finally, we also expect to identify any bugs which need to be fixed before the public launch.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“We expect the early access release to last several months, during which time we will release a variety of new levels and game mechanics, and iterate on the existing mechanics based on user feedback.”

How is the full version planned to differ from the Early Access version?

“While the early access release will include 4 partial game worlds, we expect that the full version will be released with a complete set of game worlds, each with their own theme, unique game mechanics, and multiple game boards to play per world.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“Currently, the early access release consists of 4 game worlds (Intro, Arcade, Jungle, and Ice worlds).

Each world contains a "Classic" game mode, which mimics the original Zeke's Peak mechanical arcade, where the player attempts to navigate the ball into each of the winning holes in sequence.

Each world also contains a set of "Modern" style levels, where the player must navigate the ball through various obstacles to reach the winning hole. These Modern levels explore a variety of different game mechanics (e.g. moving platforms, electrified barriers, etc.).”

Will the game be priced differently during and after Early Access?

“We don't expect the price of Zeke's Peak to change when exiting early access.”

How are you planning on involving the Community in your development process?

“We will be soliciting feedback from early access users via questionnaires and community forums. Additionally, we will be collecting anonymized gameplay data to identify any problematic levels.”

About This Game

Zeke’s Peak brings the 1983 pub classic into the digital age. The pioneer of the mechanical “bar and ball” game, Zeke’s Peak makes the transition from analogue to digital, taking advantage of the new possibilities this provides while retaining the tactile feel that made the original an instant classic.

Zeke’s Peak recreates the classic arcade boards you loved (including Ice Cold Beer!) but keeps the action rolling by introducing over 70 all-new levels with arcade-inspired gameplay. Find yourself rolling your way through several beautiful worlds, mastering new challenges along the way. Relive the glory days, immortalize yourself by competing for high scores, and follow Zeke on his wild adventure.


  • Discover Zeke’s world: Zeke has set off on an adventure. Discover new worlds and challenges to conquer. Follow Zeke’s journey from the Arcade realm into the realms of the Deep Jungles, Vast Caverns and so much more.
  • Evolved Gameplay: Zeke’s Peak is no longer static. Expect new and varied gameplay challenges as you work through Zeke’s world. The introductory levels of the Arcade realm will transition both new and old Zeke’s Peakers from the confines of the cabinet into longer and more varied challenges. Once you’ve become accustomed to Zeke’s new and dynamic levels, you will be ready to conquer new challenges as you work your way through all of the realms.
  • Classic gameplay: Play the original Zeke’s Peak, and Ice Cold Beer classic boards, as well as brand new themed boards that stay true to the classic board gameplay.
  • Competitive play: Levels have the ability to be conquered. Immortalize your name by competing for the coveted high score!
  • Customization: As you progress, you will have the opportunity to unlock new skins to customize your play.
