Peggle Nights is an utterly ridiculous game, and we mean that in the best way possible. Scholarly animals, celebratory rainbows, and a choral rendition of "Ode to Joy" are but a few of the goofy treats that await players of this delightful game.
Like most games from PopCap, Peggle Nights has wonderful graphics and sound effects. The premise of the game is something we don't fully understand (we're in the Peggle Institute, the Peggle Masters are sleeping, and as far as we can tell we're living out their dreams) but it doesn't matter--that part doesn't need to make sense. The actual object of the game is to eliminate orange pegs by shooting balls at them. It's really pretty basic, but Peggle Nights take something that could be moderately entertaining and makes it a blast. The balls bounce off of the pegs, sometimes landing in a moving pot below, which gives users a free ball. Magical powers are hidden in green pegs, while purple pegs provide aiming assistance. A variety of other bonuses and fun things are sprinkled throughout the game, and users can either consult the comprehensive Help file or just wait and stumble across them as they come. Clearing all the orange pegs allows users to advance to the next level and, eventually, to the next character, where new adventures await. We found the game to be very well-designed and fun, and we think adults and children alike will be charmed by it.
Peggle Nights has a 60-minute trial period. It installs and uninstalls without issues. We highly recommend this program to all users.
