By creating a game with a generous points system that doles out scores by the thousands, gives you ‘free’ second attempts for when you screw up badly and Burnout Crash-mode style zooming effects to highlight your victories, Peggle will almost assuredly make any player feel like a million bucks when playing the game. And thats a feeling that will make you want to come back and play again and again.
I was introduced to Peggle on Xbox Live Arcade but I’ve played it on PC and Nintendo DS as well. I’m pretty sure it works just as well on almost any other format.
