Windows Phone Game Review: Peg Jump
If you've ever dined at a Cracker Barrel restaurant, the concept behind the Windows Phone game Peg Jump will be very familiar. Peg Jump is a puzzle game where you have to jump a series of pegs over one another. The goal is to leave only one peg standing.
There's really not much to this game but it is a challenging and addictive Windows Phone app. You have the two classic 15 hole board and a 33 hole English board. To keep things interesting, you can choose from 25 variations of the English board.
Peg Jump's game play is straight forward and just like the peg puzzles at Cracker Barrel. Your first move is to choose which peg to remove to create a starting point. This is where you will make your first jump into. From there, you just tap on the peg you want to jump and the possible jumps are highlighted. Tap the highlighted peg to jump in that direction.
Should you run out of possible jumps or jump all pegs, leaving only one, the game ends. The game will judge your performance with a quaint saying such as "Genius" being earned for leaving only one peg or "Eg-No-Ra-Moose" for leaving four pegs.
All in all, Peg Jump is a fun, challenging, and addictive game for your Windows Phone. It's a nice time waster and not a bad addition to your Windows Phone gaming library.
Peg Jump is a free game, and you can find it here at the Windows Phone Marketplace.
