Best Xbox One Games List – #31 Peggle 2
Developer: PopCap Games
Publisher: Electronic Arts
Xbox One Release Date: December 9, 2013
One of the more enjoyable, non-intrusive mobile games of the late 2000’s was Peggle; a score-based puzzle game based on clearing orange peggles while obtaining a high multiplier. When you have such an excellent gameplay model laid down, simply expanding upon it is often good enough. Peggle 2 was such an expansion, and its release added more upon those same elements.
Peggle 2 is simple to describe. A ball is aimed and shot from the top of the screen. You aim to bounce the ball off of as many peggles as possible while trying to remove all the orange peggles to beat the level. You have ten balls, but a sliding collector can catch the ball and give you another freebie. More importantly, your Peggle Master provides numerous bonus effects for hitting green peggles, including an extended aim and bounce pathing for a limited time. With dozens upon dozens of maps, its addictive quality will have you running back for more Peggle.
