Peggle Nights: Free!

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.

New Peggle! Free Peggle! WoW Peggle!

Oh, Peggle. I remember when you were just an innocent wee lad, our precious little boy, wouldn’t say boo to a goose. Now you’re out there in the big wide world, rubbing shoulders with the elite with nary a backwards glance. Just don’t forget that you’re still, you’re still Peggle from the block.

Yes, we’ve had Official Orange Box Peggle, Disappointingly Similar Sequel Peggle and Played Within World of Warcraft Peggle. Now we get, simply, World of Warcraft Peggle – 10 free, standalone bonus Peggle levels.

Peggle Inside WoW: World Collapses In On Self

One massively compulsive game playable within another massively compulsive game? Why, that’s like mixing Pringles with heroin. Yes, an official (from Popcap’s end, at least) Peggle plugin has been released for World of Warcraft. Which is a) terrifying b) exciting and c) supports the viewpoint that MMOs are not merely a genre anymore – they’re a platform all of their own these days.

Peggle Extreme(ly Cheap (In Fact Free))


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)


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!

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.

Peggle Is Good For You

The real purpose of press releases is to issue outrageous statements to as many journalists as possible in the hope they’ll namecheck you when they inevitably repeat it. And hey, it works. Popcap send me a release saying stuff like “Bejeweled 2 and Peggle were shown to reduce anger by 65% and 63% respectively” – of course I’m going to post that.

It’s all part of a study (involving 132 subjects) by East Carolina University as to the positive effects of playing casual games. Test subjects were given a raft of Popcap games to play, so, quite understandably, Popcap is now giving props to itself.

This is, however, actualish science, not spurious “our tealady only smiles when playing Chuzzle” stuff.
