Peggle is the iPhone and iPod Touch version of the extremely popular (and addictively fun) arcade game also found on Macs, PCs, the Nintendo DS, Xbox Live, and other platforms. Combining skill and luck, this easy-to-play, Pachinko-style game challenges you to shoot down a set number of orange pegs with a limited number of balls on ever more complex levels. You can rotate a scroll wheel or just tap the screen to aim, ideally threading through ubiquitous blue pegs to hit multiple orange pegs with each shot, using carefully planned ricochets. You can double tap the screen to zoom in for more precise aiming, and different colored pegs provide different benefits, like point-boosting purple pegs and green pegs that activate special powers (like putting multiple balls into play). Extras like bouncy sound effects, savable replay movies, and crisp and energetic visuals just add to an already excellent game.
Peggle is a classic for a reason, and it's only gotten better on the iPhone and iPod Touch. This game may cost more than many games in the App Store, but if you like casual arcade games with lots of repeat play value, Peggle is still a great deal.
