Peggle, the blockbuster casual game from PopCap Games, is now available for the iPhone and iPod touch. It's $5 at the App Store.
Peggle tasks you with firing chrome balls from a cannon at the top of the screen, using physics to rebound the ball around a screen filled with pegs. Each time the ball makes contact with a peg, it disappears. Specially colored pegs need to be removed in order to win each level; other specially colored pegs will imbue you with a special power for a limited time. A moving basket at the bottom gives you a replay, and at the end of the round, the location where the ball lands gives you extra points.
"Peggle Masters" -- cartoonish characters distributed throughout the game -- each unlock a different power, while testing you with progressively more difficult and challenging puzzles.
The iPhone and iPod touch version of Peggle includes special features unique to this version, including a special "zoom" feature for more accurate aiming, new types of style shots, a new trophy system, special aiming wheel and an enhanced user interface.
System requirements call for iPhone 2.1 Software Update.
