SUMMARY: Eliminate the orange pegs in this beautifully crafted game

Check out, because your kids deserve the very best educational apps!

Peggle is another gem from the creators of Bejeweled and other hit arcade games. It's been around for a little while and now it has been brought to the iPhone and iPod Touch to try it's hand at mobile gaming. The game is basically a port of the PC version and without doubt is one of my most favorite games to date on the iPhone. The game looks and feels gorgeous not to mention the sounds are some of the highest quality to date. The object of the game is to eliminate all the orange pegs on the level by shooting marbles at them. Gravity takes effect and bounces the marble every which way and ultimately is lost in the bottom.

The player is only given 10 marbles to complete a level, but there are features such as the ball bucket that will save your ball if caught and many other specials that are found. This game feels ridiculously amazing and completely brought me back to the days of trying to win prizes in the local arcade. As I already said, the game presents itself amazingly well and I could not get enough of it while I was playing. With over 55 levels to play through and then continue playing, this game has awesome replay value. It basically combines pinball, brick breaking, and random chance for an experience yet to be rivaled in my eyes.

It's priced a little higher in the app store, but for the quality game that you will be purchasing for a fourth of the PC price, this game is an instant classic and will be staying on my phone forever. It is one hundred percent worth the price asked and is a shining example of what we should be expecting in iPhone games as far as quality, sound and replay value. Check it out today, you won't be disappointed.
