Apple Games Features Peggle

Apple Games' latest feature offers a look at Peggle, one of the latest releases for Mac computers and the iPod. The game combines elements of pinball, pachinko, and Breakout, challenging players to clear the screen of pegs with a skillfully aimed steel ball. The feature article includes a review of the game's features and some tips and tricks to give players an edge.

You eye a field full of pegs and blocks, all colored orange, blue, green, or purple. You possess 12 balls that you fire into the playing field one at a time, trying to light up and eliminate as many orange ones as possible; they’re the ones you must clear to advance to the next level. The blue ones simply get in your way, while the green ones provide power-ups and the purple ones grant score multipliers.

You choose an angle that works best and shoot the ball toward the pegs. It bounces among them, gravity taking it toward the bottom of the screen, where a ball bucket moves back and forth. If your shot ultimately finds the bucket, you’ll receive a free ball. When your ball hits the final orange peg, the bucket disappears, replaced by a series of buckets that offer final bonuses of 10,000, 50,000 or 100,000 points. As Beethoven’s “Ode to Joy” plays, the ball lands in one of those buckets, producing a cascade of fireworks.
