The main game/story
In yet another simplistic game from RCMADIAX, you solve classic Peg Solitaire puzzles in a move limit. That’s literally the entire game, and I technically don’t even need to mention anything about the gameplay, but I’ll try to do so anyway when we get there.
Outside of a fancy logo, this game offers simple interfaces for all to enjoy! Whether that’s a good or bad thing is up to you, but personally I wished that it at least had a more “organized” level select screen akin to that of COLOR BOMBS from last year.
Music and Sound
As with all RCMADIAX titles, there’s only one song and it loops over and over again. Sadly, its pretty forgettable, but at least there are sound effects this time around!
For those unaware of how Peg Solitaire plays, it’s basically an advanced form of checkers. You have a small (or big depending on the level) grid, and you must move pegs in a pattern to the point that they’ll “capture” the other pegs. If you can’t capture a peg on your next move, then its game over. The main objective is to essentially capture all of the pegs in the fewest moves possible. That’s literally the entire game, as this version of the title is reproduced so faithfully from the board game that its pretty much just a simple set of levels with no gimmicks whatsoever.
In conclusion, Peg Solitaire is another simplistic title from RCMADIAX, though thankfully this fared much better than his previous titles. For only $1.49, you get a decent set of challenging levels that’ll no doubt take a while to perfectly complete, (with just about a dozen of them) and for the price tag it’s easily worth the investment for fans of the board game. I give PEG SOLITAIRE a 6 out of 10.
