The latest edition of That's the Name of the Game is another iteration of my Peggle iPhone review. It does a little bit more explaining for the crowd over at bscreview.com.
What makes Peggle so special? Why do people play Peggle? Plainly put, Peggle makes the player feel empowered. The average shot will rack up tens of thousands of points and the game lets you know this through big sound effects and colors. The final shot that clears the last orange peg is accompanied by a drastic zoom in. As the peggle ball nears the last peg, slow mo raises the drama. Near misses will have a player smacking their forehead. But you're never afraid of trying again, because when you do finally clear the board, Beethoven blasts and fireworks fly. This all adds together to make you feel like you've gotten the highest score imaginable. Players who want to get a little deeper into the game will want to check out their stats and attempt to increase their score.
While my That's the Name of the Game review might not carry a numerical score, don't forget that when I originally reviewed the game here at PLAY READ WRITE, it received a 5 out of 5.
