If you're looking for (another) reason to get mad and scream at your computer about the inherent unfairness of the universe, PopCap's infuriating, pachinko-inspired Peggle is now free on Origin. 

This isn't the first time Peggle has gone On the House but it's been awhile, and it's definitely one worth having if you haven't already picked it up. For as much as it is likely enrage you when the ball bounces this way instead of that, it's an outstanding time-killer from PopCap's best days: Bright, flashy, cute, and hard to put down. Also maddening as hell. Have I mentioned that?

And now, much like Phil four years ago, I'm pretty much done here. It's Peggle, it's free, you should get it. But if you want more, here's Jason Kapalka (who actually left PopCap in 2014 to found Blue Wizard Digital, and my how time flies) dishing the dirt on the Making of Peggle

Andy has been gaming on PCs from the very beginning, starting as a youngster with text adventures and primitive action games on a cassette-based TRS80. From there he graduated to the glory days of Sierra Online adventures and Microprose sims, ran a local BBS, learned how to build PCs, and developed a longstanding love of RPGs, immersive sims, and shooters. He began writing videogame news in 2007 for The Escapist and somehow managed to avoid getting fired until 2014, when he joined the storied ranks of PC Gamer. He covers all aspects of the industry, from new game announcements and patch notes to legal disputes, Twitch beefs, esports, and Henry Cavill. Lots of Henry Cavill.
