Peggle is another great addition to Popcap's addictive yet simple games. In Peggle, You play as a master which has it's own unique special power in a top down brick-breaker style game. There are many challenges and and a wide variety of levels that will keep you entertained and playing for hours.
Step 1: Finish your first playthrough of Adventure Mode.
Start your first playthrough of Adventure Mode from the menu, it is very simple. Some levels are tough but just keep retrying and you can get past them. In this step you should get the following trophies: Catch the Fever, Go ULTRA!, Be Cool, Free! Free! Free Ball!, Stylish Project, Peggle Graduate.
You can also try to get Ace of Adventure here but it will be easier on a second playthrough.
Step 2: Get all the online Trophies.
Now that you know how to play well, you can do the online trophies! You need to win a Peggle Duel with Claude, beat 3 other players in a Peggle Party by 100,000 points and win a Peggle Party to earn the following trophies: Rock Lobster, Party Master, People's Ovation.
Step 3 (Optional): Play through Adventure Mode again.
Unless you got the Ace of Adventure trophy on your first playthrough you should do it now. It is much easier now since you can pick any character for each level you play. Try and get over 200k on each level and finish each level on your first try (extra 100k Bonus). You can quit to the XMB if you're about to fail a level so you don't miss out on the 100,000 bonus (credit to Liad-88 for that tip). Finishing every level on your first try will give you a point bonus at the end of Adventure Mode and that should guarantee 20,000,000 points earning you Ace of Adventure.
Step 4: Complete all of the challenges.
This is probably the hardest part of Peggle for most people. I have made a guide dedicated to all of the challenges to make it easier for you; you can find it here. Once you have beaten the final challenge in Peggle you will unlock Peggle Professor.
Step 5: Clear every Peg on every level.
Another very hard trophy, you will need alot of perseverance to get it! Thankfully, Liad-88 has made a great guide for it here. You have to "100% Clear" each level whether it be through Adventure Mode, Challenge Mode (certain Challenges only) or Quickplay, it does not matter. Make sure you hit the orange peg last or you have to start the entire level over again. If you are having too much trouble on one level switch your strategy or your master, take a break if this trophy starts to do your head in. Practice will make Perfect. When you 100% Clear the last level you will get Doctor of the Peggle Arts trophy!
NOTE: Peggle Nights Levels are NOT required for Doctor of the Peggle Arts!

Catch the Fever (B)
Cure your need for fever with Extreme Fever.
You will get this after you beat your first level. Simply clear all of the orange pegs to enter "Extreme Fever" mode and this trophy will unlock.
Go ULTRA! (B)
Clear all the pegs in a level. It's pretty extreme, but you look up to it.
Clear all of the pegs on any level. An easy way to get this is to use Jimmy Lightning and play the level "Das Bucket." Make sure to not hit the last orange peg until you have cleared all the other pegs. It is best to make your last orange peg high on the board so you don't accidentally hit it.
Be Cool (B)
Hit the last orange then the last blue to rack up a Cool Clear.
In order to get a Cool Clear you must hit the last orange peg and then hit the last non-orange peg. I recommend using Bjorn on the first level and using the special ability when you're about to hit the final orange so you can make sure your shot will rebound onto the last non-orange to earn the "Cool Clear" trickshot!
Free! Free! Free Ball! (B)
Rack up the score or hit the bucket for 3 free balls in one shot.
Use Jimmy Lightning on "Das Bucket" and hit both green pegs in one shot. With a bit of luck you should get at least 75,000 Points (2 Free Balls) and one ball in the bucket (1 Free Ball).
Stylish Project (B)
Bust out all your Skillz, Bounces, and Slides for 1 million style points!
You need to accumulate a total of 1,000,000 "Style Points."
You should get this quickly through natural play but if you want it fast you can start any level with Bjorn and hit the green pegs so you can easily hit Long shots, Super Long Shots and Off The Wall Style shots.
For your convenience I have set up a list of all trickshots:
Free Ball Skills: Bounce ball directly from one (and only one) peg into the Free Ball Bucket. Points: 5,000 (2,500 in Duel Mode)
Long Shot: Hit a non-blue peg, travel approximately 1/3 the width of the screen, hit another non-blue peg next or almost-next. Points: 25,000 (5,000 in Duel Mode)

Peggle Graduate (S)
Complete Adventure Mode and earn your degree from the Peggle Institute.
Adventure Mode contains 55 levels you need to beat to earn this trophy. You shouldn't have any trouble except for the last few levels, which can be easily beaten through persistence.
Ace of Adventure (S)
In a peg defying feat, score 20 million points in a single play-through of Adventure mode.
You should attempt this after you have done at least 1/3 of the challenges so you are a bit more skilled. Try to finish as many levels as you can on your first try as you not only get 100k points but it also gives you a bonus in millions at the end depending on how many levels you finished on your first try! You should try and average at least 380k per level. Doing this on your 2nd playthrough makes it even easier as you get to choose which master you want for each stage which can be crucial for maximizing your score!
Tip from Liad-88:
If you're losing in the level (say you got 1 ball left and loads of orange pegs), just go into XMB, quit game and restart it. The progress is saved from that level, but you're still on your first try (or whichever it was you tried it from). DO NOT finish the level, and then quit - it HAS to be done before all the balls have been used and you come to the 'retry' screen. This is a very easy alternative method for people to get the trophy if they have trouble with it.
So if you quit to the XMB if you're about to lose a level (you MUST quit from XMB), you can retry without losing the 100,000 points. Also, if you finish each level on your first try using this trick if you're about to fail, you will get a 10 million bonus at the end of Adventure Mode, which should guarantee 20 million+! It is a tedious process but it is much better than finishing Adventure Mode and scoring 19 million.
Peggle Professor (S)
Complete every level in Challenge Mode and even the Peggle Masters will be impressed.
The Peggle Challenges are very tough. I can't explain the easiest way to beat each one here so I have written an entire guide for the challenges here. I hope that will help you in beating some of these insanely hard challenges.
Doctor of the Peggle Arts (G)
Clear all pegs and bricks in every level in Quick Play or Adventure mode and gain explodious fame!
Another hard trophy that can really be a pain to unlock. Thankfully, a guide for 100%'ing each level has been written by Liad-88 and you can find that here.
You can identify which levels you have "100%'ed" by the Blue 100% Ribbon over the levels you have "100%'ed".
Rock Lobster (B)
Win a PlayStation®Network Duel like a crustacean born. `Ave you tried ze flippers?
The trophy description of this may not be understood by some people but you have to win a Duel online while using Claude the crab. Don't forget you MUST use Claude or the trophy won't unlock. I recommend being the host in a session and pick a map in which you can use Claude the crab's special ability to your advantage.
Party Master (B)
Winning a Peg Party is way better than playing with a ball of yarn!
I recommend being the host as you can set the map and rules. Choose a map you are familiar with and a character that can rack up the score (Rabbit, Owl, Guinea Pig and Pumpkin are some good ones). Then just score above everyone else, use your special abilities early on as that is when you can make the most out of them.
People's Ovation (B)
Win a 4-player Peg Party by a whoppin' 100,000 points to acquire everlasting coolness.
Use either Hu, Warren, Jimmy or Pumpkin and try and get the lead on a match early on. Being a host is a great advantage as you can choose any level you are good at and set the rules.
It is hard to get 100,000 points ahead of everyone in Peg Party but every now and then you will have your moment where you completely blow everyone away. Unfortunately there must be 4 players at the end of the peg party which means if someone rage quits, which they most likely will, you will not earn this trophy.

Approximate time to 100%: 25+ Hours
Trophy Breakdown: 3 Total

Peggle Nights is the new dlc for Peggle, it expands on Peggle by adding 60 new levels, 60 new challenges, a whole new adventure mode, 3 new trophies, a new peggle master and to top it off, a few more trickshots! Costing only half the price of Peggle, it's value for money.
Step 1: Finish Adventure Mode
If you have finished the main Peggle Adventure Mode, then this should be a piece of cake. Once you finish Peggle Nights Adventure Mode you will unlock Marina as a playable character. In this step you should get Peggle Ph.D .
Step 2: Hit 13 purple pegs in any level
Using Marina you have to hit 13 purple pegs on any level. I prefer to do this through Quickplay on a level where there is a good layout of pegs. You do not have to finish the level but rather only hit 13 pegs in a level to unlock Purple Necklace .
Step 3: Finish all the Peggle Nights Challenges
These challenges are a bit harder than the Peggle challenges. I have written a guide dedicated to all the challenges here. In this final step you should unlock Tenured to claim 100% on Peggle Nights.
Peggle Ph.D (S)
Complete the Peggle Nights Adventure mode. You'll know everyone at the Peggle Institute!
Finish the Adventure Mode of Peggle Nights. It isn't really that hard, just beat every level in Peggle Nights Adventure Mode.
Purple Necklace (S)
Using Marina from Peggle Nights, hit 13 purple pegs during a single level in Adventure or Quick Play modes. Pretty!
To get this trophy you must have first beaten Peggle Nights Adventure Mode to unlock Marina as a playable character
Start a level in Quickplay that has a good setup of pegs. Just aim for purple pegs and nothing else. You should try to get your ball into the free ball bucket every shot as you will need at least 3 free balls to get this. You do not need to beat the level to unlock this trophy you just have to hit 13 pegs.
Some good levels to do this on are: Das Bucket, Birdy's Crib, Bjorn's Gazebo or the 1st level of Peggle Nights.
Complete all of the challenges in Peggle Nights Challenge mode.
The challenges in Peggle Nights are even harder than the ones in Peggle. I have written a guide for both Peggle and Peggle Nights challenges - you can find that here. Most of the challenges will require perseverance and persistence to beat and this is why you shouldn't give in.
