A Closer Look At Peggle
6:00 AM | Cord Kruse | Comment on this story

Macworld's Game Room is now offering a new review of Peggle Deluxe. The game combines elements of pachinko, pinball, and even Breakout to create a unique mix of action and strategy. The Game Room gave Peggle a score of 4.5 out of 5 mice.

From the review:

Peggle Deluxe is a bizarre mixture of the Japanese pinball game Pachinko and Bust-A-Move, a popular color matching arcade game that goes back to the late 1980s. In Peggle, you have to make orange-colored pegs disappear by rebounding a ball that you fire out of a cannon. You donít have any direct control over how the ball falls; instead, you take careful aim with your cannon and hope that the ball will hit its intended target.

Each new level reveals a new puzzle, and as you progress through the levels you meet new characters called Peggle Masters. Each Peggle Master has a special power. For example, one is a lobster and when you activate his powerups, youíll be able to use claws at the bottom of the screen like pinball flippers. The goal is to strike all of the colored pegs before you run out of balls, your supply of which replenishes with each new level. If youíre lucky enough to land your ball in a basket that caroms across the bottom of the screen, youíll keep that ball in play for another turn.
