Peggle: Dual Shot
I can sum up Peggle in one word: "fun"
There isn't much to say when it comes to Peggle: Dual Shot. I applaud its simple yet clever design, and the flexibility of its gameplay: You don't have to play through it in sessions of predetermined length, as you would in a game like The Legend of Zelda, where starting and finishing a dungeon in one sitting is the preferred option. Instead, you can slowly chip away at it, one puzzle at a time, until you finally beat it. The game's upbeat, quirky, and sometimes humorous presentation doesn't hurt, either. Neither the graphics nor the music were that impressive, but technicalities like these don't really matter when you look at the bigger picture. The game is sure to alleviate boredom on long car rides or rainy days, especially if you're not looking for some sort of epic adventure or intense action. Peggle has an edge over other puzzles like Plants vs. Zombies, due to its "lasting appeal". The amount of content packed into the game is sure to last a while, and if not, there's always the challenge of 100%-ing (clearing every single peg) every level on Quick Play. Oh, and PS, the multiplayer is pretty OK. Nothing special.
Very Fun Game!
I bought this game because I enjoy playing puzzle games. It has over 115 different levels. When you first start it is very easy but the levels get more challenging as you progress within the game. The whole point of the game is to acheive eliminating all the orange balls or pegs with your shooter within a certain amount of shots given. There are different charaters that have different powerups to help you eliminate the orange balls. The grahics on Peggle are much better then a lot of DS games. They even play music and have fireworks when you have completed a level. In the beginning because of all the diffrent levels I thought it would take me awhile to beat the entire game. I was wrong. I was so addicted to it that I ended up staying up all night long playing. Highly Recommend this game!
Okay If You Need Peggle On The Go
If you absolutely need a portable version of Peggle, buy this. Otherwise, your money is much better spent on a different platform version such as Xbox Live Arcade, PC/MAC, etc. The graphics are really fuzzy and not high-def enough. Also the physics of the ball is a little quirky sometimes. Another negative is that the controls aren't designed very well, you have to aim with the stylus then hit the A button to shoot. You can use the directional pad but it is slower. Besides those negatives, Peggle is fun as always and very addictive, and you most likely won't be disappointed. I haven't really tried the other duel modes, it's cool that you get the original Peggle and the sequel. My biggest gripe is the low-def graphics, I think I'll be playing the Xbox Live Arcade version from now on.
Another great one for Pop Cap Fans
I was a little hesitant about this game, but it was recommended by the staff at my local store. They are so in tune to what kind of games I like. However, it was determined to be "awesome". And after playing since last night. I have to agree. The game somewhat mixes shooting and aim with a "pachinko" type of game. I have always loved panchinko, and this is right on target with me. It is a relaxing game, with good graphics, and entertaining music. If you like any games by "Pop Cap", you will certainly like this one. Your little ones in the house can also play this without reading, and stressing on complication. I really do like this one, and I am glad my local Game Stop recommended this one. No blood, no gore, just fun and relaxation for the DSI fan.
Popcap's best game on the DS
Peggle: Dual Shot combines the award winning titles 'Peggle' and 'Peggle Nights' all in one game. The normal point and click controls for the PC are changed for the DS so you can play the game easily. The game is really fun, with challenges, duel, quick play, and just about everything the PC version has. All and all a good game for Peggle fans.
