Launching on Steam, Switch, and Xbox One on Friday the 13th (and PS4 later), Roundguard is basically Peggle turned into a dungeon-crawling role-playing game. A ball-bouncing roguelike, if you will. In other words, it’s my jam.


There used to be a cool Peggle game on the New Zealand App Store. The same Peggle you could get everywhere else in the world. That game is now gone. In its place is a new Peggle game that is just the worst.


Peggle is a puzzle game that involves clearing coloured pegs from a board by shooting balls from the top of the screen, but that's not what the game is about. It's about getting to the explosively colourful celebration at the end of each level, and Peggle 2's celebrations are the most satisfying yet.


I had a bit of cognitive whiplash when I saw Peggle 2 this afternoon. Its predecessor is a game that's everywhere. Your mum or even grandmother probably plays it, or something heavily inspired by it. The browser version of the first Peggle is what helped its viral spread but there I was playing it on an Xbox One development unit.


As if you needed proof that LittleBigPlanet 2's Create tools were incredibly and almost intimidatingly flexible, here comes an almost perfect recreation of Popcap's Peggle. We've already seen Wolfenstein 3D and Flower recreations, but this is every bit as awesome an achievement.


Plants Vs Zombies, a wonderful video game that is on just about every device other than Androids and toasters, will be out for Androids in "Q2", the folks at Popcap tell us. That means April-June. We played it briefly this week. Looks sharp. Peggle's a Q2 Android game too.


The makers of massive hits Bejeweled, Peggle, and Plants vs Zombies are eying 2011 as the year for aggressive expansion, PopCap Games head Dave Roberts tells Forbes.


Looks like I picked a good time to finally get an iPhone. PopCap Games - developers of many addictive games like Peggle and Bookworm - are having an App Store sale.
