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.
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 have been playing Peggle on computers for a while and it is so fun and addicting! When I saw that it was out for the DS at such a great price, I had to pick it up. I gave it 4 stars instead of 5 because the graphics and sound just aren't up to par with the computer version (but that is to be expected). If you have never played Peggle, you owe it to yourself to get it. If you are already a Peggle addict on the computer, pick this up and get ready for some EXTREME FEVER!
Summary: Chances are pretty good you've played some version of Peggle before. It's on cell phones, handhelds, consoles, computers, you can even play a version while you're already playing World of Warcraft. The DS version's difference is the use of the touch screen for aiming, which sounds great in theory, but isn't as precise as is necessary for some of the trickier boards. Fortunately it isn't forced upon you, and you can use the D-pad for precision aiming.
Summary: This is a great game. I played a version on my daughter's iPhone and was immediately hooked. The graphics are nice, with bright colors, and each level offers different helps. The stylus is used, which I like. If you enjoy (or grew up during) the Pin Ball era, this game is for you.
