Summary: There isn't much to say when it comes to Peggle: Dual Shot. I applaud its simple yet clever design, and the flexibility of its gameplay: You don't have to play through it in sessions of predetermined length, as you would in a game like The Legend of Zelda, where starting and finishing a dungeon in one sitting is the preferred option. Instead, you can slowly chip away at it, one puzzle at a time, until you finally beat it.
Summary: Very good dame, I do not read instructions well, so I kind of "trial and error" learn some of these, and once I understood teh powers of the certain characters, it is challenging. I am almost 40 and like this one.
Summary: Peggle: Dual Shot combines the award winning titles 'Peggle' and 'Peggle Nights' all in one game. The normal point and click controls for the PC are changed for the DS so you can play the game easily. The game is really fun, with challenges, duel, quick play, and just about everything the PC version has. All and all a good game for Peggle fans.
Summary: If you absolutely need a portable version of Peggle, buy this. Otherwise, your money is much better spent on a different platform version such as Xbox Live Arcade, PC/MAC, etc. The graphics are really fuzzy and not high-def enough. Also the physics of the ball is a little quirky sometimes. Another negative is that the controls aren't designed very well, you have to aim with the stylus then hit the A button to shoot. You can use the directional pad but it is slower.
Fun Game...But Can be both Addictive and Frustrating!

Summary: This is a very addictive game. I have played several computer versions, and this Nintendo DS game is a version of games that have been available for Mac and PC for some time. It's a little trickier to line up your shots with the small screen of the DS, but the publisher of this version did a GREAT job of providing a "zoom" shot if you hold your stylus on the lower screen for an extended period. Presto - no more problems planning those tricky shots!
Summary: For those of you caught up in the pinball comparison, this game really has nothing to do with pinball - except pachinko is labeled as Japanese pinball, and this game is similar to pachinko. The skill involved is aiming the ball before putting it into play. The rest of the action is out of your hands as the ball bounces until it drains. There is nothing you can do to keep it in play. For me, this is not a game to play for more than one level at a time.
Summary: I bought Peggle based only on reading the back of the packaging case. I am glad that I did. This game is so much fun to play. There are 120 levels with increasing difficulty and various special powers available. Peggle masters include "Bjorn the Unicorn" and other creatures such as a beaver, a white rabbit, a sunflower, a jack-o-lantern, and several more. Once you master all of the levels in Peggle, you can unlock Peggle Nights for even more gaming.
Summary: Peggle is a lot of fun on the computer, but you can't always have your computer with you. This DS version is all the fun of the original, and the same graphics. Nicely split on the dual screen, I think it's well priced for what you get from Pop Cap Games.
