Thename might conjure thoughts of an illicit Peggle nocturne, an after-dark special for the sorts of people who fill glittery Russian ice bars in adverts for vodka. With the flash of a card gilded with the sign of a unicorn, gorgeous people filter into exclusive chambers to conduct the kind of clean, frictionless pachinko orgy that you can only imagine if you’re not there. Put these thoughts aside. ‘Nights’ means that the Peggle is conducted against a background that is a darker shade of blue. Even so: this remains one of the defining addictions of the PopCap back catalogue, a game of ball-play that climaxes in the best use of
Ode To Joy this side of A Clockwork Orange.
I think the pachinko unicorn is trying to tell me something.
