    spoo's Peggle Extreme (PC)

    [March 6, 2008 05:08:56 PM]
    In this gameplay session i was able to finish the game, but the last 4 levels took much longer than the first 6. The game added many difficult shots including levels that had sections that were only accessible with portals. After beating the game i was left wanting more. I had played a good amount of Peggle Deluxe before playing extreme, so The starting ability just isn't sufficient. There are many other abilities that make the game so much more enjoyable.

    The game was a free entity tacked on to the best deal in gaming history, it was pretty shallow, but it is original content. The game is enjoyable, and even if all it is is an advertisement I am glad Valve threw it in their pack. The game even made me laugh at times.

    The design is one of the game's strongest points. The levels are designed after the orange box. The Cartooney feel of deluxe is removed and replaced by a darker, funnier valve version. The levels are easy enough for anyone to beat, but difficult enough to keep me, a peggle vet, interested. This game was clearly designed to get people who grew up with Halflife to buy and play this ridiculous game.

    i enjoyed the way they integrated many aspects of the orange box into this game. In deluxe if you do particularly well with one marble, a little gopher will pop up and say nice shot. In Extreme a Heavy Weapons Guy from TF2 will pop up and say well done in his heay slavix accent. This game is elevated by playing the other contents of the orange box first, if a personw as to jump straight into peggle many of the references would go wasted.

    Peggle Extreme is an advirtisement for Peggle Deluxe located within Valve's Orange Box. The game takes some of Deluxe's elements, simplifies them, then adds a few new things like portals. The game is only 10 levels and is very easy for anyone who has played Peggle before, though it will take a novice several attempts to complete most of the levels.

    The gameplay is almosy identical to Deluxe, except there is only one playable character instead of the many from deluxe. The goal of the game is to shoot a marble to pop all 35 orange pegs locatted on the game screen. The game uses realistic physics for the ball's bounces. There are also other types of pegs, blue, green, and purple. the Blue Pegs are just extra points, you do not need to break any to beat the level. The green ones are worth points as well as activiate your character's special ability. The purple pegs are some of the most important, they are a score multiplyer and there is always one purple peg in the field.

    After you clear the orange pegs the bottom of the field is replaced with 5 scoring sections worth either 10, 50, or 100 thousand. If you manage to clear every peg each section is worth 100,000. the game opens simply, but quickly gets much more complex. In my first session I was able to make it all the way to level seven.
