Peggle 2 comes initially with five Peggle masters /
power-ups, with more coming in future content updates. Returning from
the original Peggle is Bjorn the unicorn, whose Super
Guide power-up displays the path of the ball's first bounce (enhanced
and improved compared to the original Peggle). The four new Peggle 2
masters are as follows: Berg, a lovable yeti whose Deep Freeze
power causes pegs to slip and slide into each other, often with
devastating chain reactions; Gnorman, a small gnome with big
dreams and a power (Uber Volt) which supercharges the ball with
electricity that lances out to strike two additional pegs for each hit
peg; Jeffrey, a laid-back troll with a Bowlder power-up that
smashes through pegs and bricks with crushing finality; and Luna,
a mysterious, but loveable ghost girl whose Nightshade power turns blue
pegs into spectral shadows through which the ball can pass to reach
difficult orange pegs - while racking up all the points from phantom
blue pegs to boot.
