Peggle for iPhone released
Overcoming a small but significant delay, PopCap has at last launched the iPhone version of Peggle, its well-known puzzle game. Players fire a metal ball from the top of the screen, with the goal of knocking out as many blocks as possible before it reaches the bottom. Special bonuses are awarded for unique combos and trick shots.
The iPhone game includes 55 regular levels and 40 Grand Master challenges, which can be chosen individually through the Quick Play or Challenge modes. Gamers can additionally play against others in the Duel mode, and record unusual shots for later playback. Separating the port is a new Extreme Precision wheel, meant increased accuracy, and a series of new style bonuses, such as Off the Wall and Double Long Shot. A Trophy Room now displays unusual achievements in the game.
Peggle is a $5 download from the App Store, and requires iPhone 2.1 firmware.
