In Peglin, the goal is to deal damage to enemies by bouncing orbs against pegs until the foes are defeated. Think the game "Plinko" from The Price Is Right, but with more antagonists and more fun besides. According to the game's page on the Steam Store, the game's description is such:

The dragons have been popping peglins and stealing all of your gold for as long as you can remember. Enough is enough. It's time to venture through the woods, conquer the fortress, and delve into the heart of the dragon's lair to take back what's yours and teach those dragons a lesson.

Peglin plays like a combination of Peggle and Slay the Spire. The enemies are tough, and if you're defeated your run is over, but you've got powerful orbs with special effects and incredible relics that influence both your enemies and the physics you'll use to defeat them.

Some key features of Peglin include the following:

  • Collect and upgrade powerful orbs and relics to defeat the monsters and bosses that stand in your way.
  • Fight enemies with Pachinko-like gameplay – hit more pegs to do more damage. Use crit potions, refresh potions, and bombs wisely.
  • Explore a new forest every time, with different orbs, enemies, and surprises along the way.
