Humble Weekly Sale Offers PopCap Games For Charity

By Graham Smith on March 7th, 2014.

Very excellent.

This week’s Humble Weekly sale is a PopCap bundle, but with an added twist: EA are giving 100% of their cut to charity. Two charities, in fact, between which you can choose your split: the V Foundation for Cancer Research, and The Melanoma Research Alliance which specifically fights skin cancer.

Pay more than $1 and you’ll get a copy of Peggle (download size: one Peggle), zen-like match three puzzler Bejeweled 3, word puzzler Bookworm Deluxe, and two other games. Pay more than $6 and you’ll also get Plants vs. Zombies, Zuma’s Revenge and Peggle Nights. You’ll even get Origin and Steam keys for each one.

Maybe this is Kindness Week and we only just realised?

Peggle Nights: Free!

By Alec Meer on February 21st, 2010.

Via an act of minor skullduggery, Popcap’s Peggle (PEGGLE!) sequel may be had for nil-dollars. All you need to do is pop over to their site and sign up for their new Popcap Passport service (expect newsletters, inevitably), and then you can gift Peggle Nights to a friend – or to an alternative email address of your own. Cheeky! Oh, and there’s a collection of bonus levels to be had for similar costlessness here. The Passport sign-up email takes a little while to arrive by the way, so don’t freak out and write an all-caps letter to your MP if it doesn’t reach your inbox immediately. In other Popcap news, Plants vs Zombies is now on iPhone. Apparently a couple of people own those.

Peggle Extreme(ly Cheap (In Fact Free))

By Kieron Gillen on December 18th, 2008.

PEGGGGGGGLLLLLLEEEEEE!

While we’re all deep in the “Man, remember that 2008!” demi-ironic naval-gazing, let’s take it further. Remember 2007? Ah, those were amazing days. Remember Peggle Extreme, the Orange-Box-included bonus mini-Peggle game? That headcrab on the unicorns head was funny and similar and… oh, no, can’t stretch this out. Peggle Extreme is now free to anyone with a Steam account. If you haven’t played it yet for some reason, get it from here.

When the_B told me about this, I told him that I knew about it already. But I didn’t! What I was thinking about was the free new level pack for Peggle Nights. So thanks, The_B.

Steamy Peggle Nights (For Half The Price)

By Alec Meer on October 15th, 2008.

Uniiiiiiiiiiii

The sequel (of sorts) to our favourite ball-based game of last year has been around for a few weeks now, but grumpy, sensible types – myself included – had refused to buy it direct from Popcap, preferring to wait until it showed up in Steam for that vital install-anywhere thingy, and the hope of a lower price. And now it has, which is good news for Peggle fans, but bad news for me as I’m supposed to be working this evening, but instead I’m playing bloody Peggle.

Peggle Nights!

By John Walker on September 17th, 2008.

Alec will actually contract fever from excitement.

Quick survey: has anyone heard of a game called Peggle?

Peggle Nights is out! Woo!

Nothing much more needs to be said. It’s £15 from Popcap, and there’s a demo on the site. New Peggle! (Clearly it’s not more Bookworm Adventures, but there’s still cause for celebration).

We’ll be playing the full version and will discuss it in childishly excited tones soon enough. Big thanks to Chris for pointing this out.

Games For 2008: Peggle Nights

By John Walker on January 28th, 2008.

“Write about Peggle Nights,” the Mighty Sentient RPS Computer told me. “But there’s no information about it whatsoever,” I meekly protested. There was a brief whirring. “WRITE ABOUT IT OR I WILL RE-APPLY THE NODES.”

World exclusive first screenshot!

Peggle Nights, eh? How exciting is that?! It’s Peggle, but at night!

Oh please help.

All that’s known is the name, thanks to a mention in the Christmas ish of PC Gamer US. Described as being… Hey, wait a second! I never noticed that insult from Kieron before. Man! Yeah well Kieron, you… you smell of wee wee. And your mum cuts your hair. YOUR PUBIC HAIR.

Simon GameSetWatch speculated that the name might infer a similarity to that greatest of television spin-offs, Baywatch Nights. But that’s only one of many possibilities…

A Hard Day’s Peggle Nights. And Zombies.

By Kieron Gillen on December 11th, 2007.

While Englishman in New York San Fran Simon had mentioned it online before us, we got a copy of the relevant bits of PC Gamer US for a looksie. And lo! Pop Cap are really calling Peggle’s sequel Peggle Nights, PC Gamer US really did (righteously!) include it in their Top 8 games for 2008 and it really does offer us 65 new levels, a new character with power-up AND a game called Peggle Nights. Also, they’re working on something else…

We snagged evidence of an as-yet-unnamed survival-horror game that puts gamers against everybody’s favourite moaning, groaning unpleasant smelling adversary: the undead. That’s right – survival horror from the same folks that game us a strapping unicorn named Bjorn in peggle.

Speak for yourselves, PCGUS. Our favourite moaning, groaning unpleasant smelling adversary is John Walker. Thanks Gametrailers Carl Kwoh for the mag, wherein you can find more details and – gasp! – a screen.
