Developed by PopCap Games and published by Electronic Arts, Peggle 2 is a puzzle video game that rivals the addictive, entertaining gameplay of other puzzle games like Tetris and Candy Crush. A timed exclusive for the Xbox console, Peggle 2 is all about clearing the pegs on the screen to reach the next level.
In Peggle 2, gamers shoot balls from the top of the screen to clear colored pegs from a board. The player has a limited number of balls to use while they clear the board. Also found on the board are one of the five Masters, who will lend a special power to your balls if you hit the green peg. As gamers clear out the board, a rendition of Beethoven’s “Ode to Joy” blasts through the speakers as fireworks erupt across the screen and the Master dances along, giving the gamer pure satisfaction.
The game’s physics along with the layout of the pegs make for a very entertaining and addictive gameplay. The game is very strategic but can become very random as well while the ball bounces around. PopCap Games have added a multitude of challenges, trick shots and high scores for gamers to master which only add to the replay value of Peggle 2.
The game is highly accessible; a child could figure it out. Although the game is simple to pick up, it also can be very challenging and deep to give hardcore gamers the challenge they crave. Colorful backdrops and background music add to the already slick gameplay and round out this game into something special.
With hilarious animations and music, Peggle 2 has gripping mechanics to make for the perfect puzzle video game. Adding delightful music, visuals and sound effects with tons of extra content to play through, PopCap Games has developed a totally riveting game that will be an instant classic of fun for your living room.
