Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say (2 ):
Kids say (10 ):

PEGGLE has everything kids could ask for in a pinball game: lots of important looking wheels and gauges, satisfying sound effects, a personal trophy room, and fireworks set to Beethoven's Ode to Joy when scoring goes "fever." The only thing missing is tilt physics, which sadly is not taken advantage of. Still, Peggle is just absolute fun, with no worries about violence, frustrations, or the need to make in-app purchases to progress. A winner for simple enjoyment.

Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
