Best Action Puzzler
Got You Pegged: Take aim with the cannon at the top of the screen and tap Fire to launch a shot. Planning shots pays off, earning "style points" for long shots by ricocheting an orange peg off another across the screen. Hit green pegs for power-ups, and land the ball in the kettle at the bottom for an extra turn.
Big Reward: As you hit the last orange peg, the game zooms in and throws itself into slow motion as an orchestra plays a rapturous "Ode to Joy." Now that's winning! It's one of many eccentric touches, including the oddball personalities of the ten "mentors" who lead you through 55 levels and 40 challenges.

Cross pachinko with unicorns and rainbows, and you get... Peggle! In this simple but wildly addictive game, you fire a ball into a field of pegs where it ricochets like a pinball, earning points for each peg hit and removing them after each round. The goal is to clear all orange pegs. When you do, Peggle plays a fanfare so over the top, so deliciously triumphant, that even the most jaded gamer will squeal and giggle. No kidding, it's that good.
