Peggle Dual Shot review

It's portable. It's Peggle. And that's awesome

Beyond the primary stage-clearing adventure mode, each game has an amped-up challenge mode packed with various expert objectives, as well as a relatively forgettable duel mode for single-system (alternating) multiplayer matches.

Though the core experiences remain intact, Q Entertainment did add a couple of notable things to the experience. A new Bonus Underground area in each stage lets you collect gems in an effort to unlock some of the 10 new stages created by Q for the game. The stylus controls work very well and are augmented by a zoom function that lets you adjust your aim by miniscule amounts for expert shots. A secondary d-pad (or shoulder buttons) control scheme is also included, though it takes quite a bit longer to set up your shot.

If you're one of the unlucky saps who have yet to be caught in Peggle's addictive grasp, the affordable, content-packed Peggle Dual Shot may be the best gateway to this enduringly enjoyable franchise. And if you're already a Peggle nut? Now it's portable, and it's all here. Good luck trying to talk your way out of that purchase.
