Peggle 2

Peggle 2 is a casual puzzle video game developed by PopCap Games and published by Electronic Arts. It is the official sequel to Peggle (2007), although a previous follow-up to the PC game was released in 2008. In production since 2012, Peggle 2 was announced during the E3 2013 press conference and also as a timed exclusive for the Xbox One. Although the gameplay mechanics remain mostly the same, Peggle 2 features a different set of masters, with Bjorn Unicorn and Jimmy Lightning (DLC) the only returning members among a set of five other new ones.

The goal of Peggle 2 is to clear all 25 orange pegs from the board with 10 balls to shoot from with a cannon at the top of the screen. 72 blue pegs, two green pegs and one purple peg which moves on each shot are randomly placed on the board. With the green peg, it enables the “masters” power on next shot or even on current shot. The game uses a multiplier feature which multiplies the players score by the number of pegs that the player hits. The more orange pegs are hit, the higher the multiplier (stylized as multiplizer in-game), the more points are earned.

Peggle 2 features five new masters, each with their own unique power:

  • Bjorn Unicorn: Can freeze pegs in place for a limited time.
  • Jimmy Lightning: Can create a lightning bolt that destroys multiple pegs in a single shot.
  • Kat: Can create a tornado that sucks in pegs and destroys them.
  • Professor Pegglesworth: Can create a force field that protects pegs from being destroyed.
  • Windy the Fairy: Can create a gust of wind that blows pegs around the board.

Peggle 2 also features a number of new gameplay modes, including:

  • Peg Party: A four-player cooperative mode where players work together to clear the board.
  • Duels: A two-player competitive mode where players try to score more points than their opponent.
  • Trials: A series of challenging levels that test your skills.

Peggle 2 was a critical and commercial success, receiving praise for its addictive gameplay, charming visuals, and humor. It was nominated for several awards, including Game of the Year at the 2013 Spike Video Game Awards.

If you’re looking for a fun and challenging puzzle game, Peggle 2 is definitely worth checking out. It’s a great game for all ages and skill levels, and it’s sure to provide hours of entertainment.
