Play OverviewPlay Overview

Peglin (2022) is an adventure game where you fight monsters and other enemies by scoring points in a Pachinko machine below the world. Like Peggle, you collect special orbs that deal damage to enemies by bouncing the ball into pegs. In this way you go on an unusual hunt to head into the woods, conquer fortresses, and delve into the heart of the dragon's lair to take back your gold.

Play involves first firing the ball into the field of pegs to maximise your points. You then use these to attack your enemies. Along the way you can acquire relics that offer special benefits and abilities.

It's a hard game where you are likely to die. If you're defeated your run is over, but you keep the orbs and relics to help you on your next attempt. It's an unusual combination of Peggle and Slay the Spire.

Our examiner, Andy Robertson, first checked Peglin 2 years ago. It was re-examined by Jo Robertson and updated a year ago.

Skill Level

6+ year-olds usually have the required skill to enjoy this game. The simple aiming of balls at the pachinko board is not highly skilled and enables youngsters to enjoy the game. The skill is in deciding how you apply the currency and upgrades you earn and unlock. There is also some strategy of how to use the different balls (and related abilities) to the best effect.


Peglin usually costs £15.49.
