Addictive; great soundtrack; lots of levels and power ups; four modes including two-player
Peggle, the popular iPhone app from the developers of Plants vs. Zombies, has finally arrived in HD for the iPad. The aim is to hit all of the orange pegs in gameplay reminiscent of pinball. With 55 levels and 12 quirky characters to guide you along the way, Peggle HD will keep iPad owners of all ages entertained for hours. A catchy soundtrack, and colourful graphics add to the Peggle HD experience.
Green pegs give you power ups, which vary depending on the stage you’re playing. For example, when playing a level with Renfield the Pumpkin to guide you, a green peg will give you the ‘spooky ball’ power up – an extra ball drops down from the top of the screen.
If your ball lands in the bucket that drifts back and forth at the bottom, you get a free ball.
There are four modes to choose from: Adventure, Quick Play, Challenge and Duel. Adventure follows the main story of the game. Quick Play allows you to replay levels that you’ve already completed in Adventure mode. Challenge mode is unlocked after completion of Adventure mode, and Duel is a two-player game that lets you play with a friend or the computer.
At higher levels moving pegs make hitting the orange pegs more challenging
For added fun, there’s a Replay option, where you can watch your best moments again, plus a trophy room so you can admire your achievements. All these extras, plus the epic and hugely entertaining gameplay, make this a rich and tactical game that even serious gamers will enjoy, despite its pick up and play nature.
