    It is the same game as the desktop version which I completed long long time before the iPhone app came out so I was quite disappointed with that.

    Also Peggle destroys battery life on the phone and the zen shot takes ages to work out.

    It is good but a little disappointing.

    I downloaded as soon as Appsniper said it was on sale (I had it on watch :D).

    Such a fun game. I love hearing ode to joy when you hit the last peg. :p

    Also just bought Sneezies. Doesn't really have anything to do with Peggle...but it's fun (and cute) as hell.

    PS. 79 cents in German App store.

    Fantastic price for a fantastic game. Now if they could just get Plants vs Zombies onto the App Store, my portable digital crack supply would be plentiful.

    This was my case, when it first came out. I had never played it, ever, so I had no idea what to expect, despite reading multiple pre-launch blogposts on it. Until Zenonia came out, I don't think there was a more anticipated game in all of the App Store. I was REALLY psyched.

    Even so, I thought, eh, it's just a game. There are 30,000 others in the store. What's the big whoop?

    Then I played it the first time.

    I wrote of it that you have to try out all kinds of App Store games before buying Peggle. It's only when you have sampled all these inane farts, poops, vamps, and mafia apps, that you will understand just how bloody CHARMING Peggle is.

    This game sometimes literally makes me laugh out loud like a little kid. I love me some Peggle. 99 cents? Puh-lease. Daylight robbery.

    Does anyone know when this ends?

    And what good app tracking sites (like the AppSniper thing mentioned, but on web) I should keep track of ... and/or RSS feeds?

    The iTunes listing says the sale ends at midnight June 14.

    As to monitoring the store via web or RSS, it's hard to beat appshopper.com, which works well either way.

    I have stinkin' 41 cents in my iTunes account right now.

    HMPH. I don't even have an iPt yet - but 99 cents is too good to pass up too.

    Heck, this is the game that broke the button on my iPod Video! LOL!!

    Another member already mentioned the best site (appshopper) but also of note is the "New Games" section of Touch Arcade. It's just below the banner, alongside "Home Forums Submit".

    I also have all the sniping apps and find Pandorabox to be second only to Appsniper, and sometimes even quicker than the latter, in finding sales. We're talking 15-24 hrs quicker.

    Bought it and played it a bit today. I must say I that it hasn't grabbed me yet. What is so good about it that it is receiving such great accolades?

    It's nostalgic, and due to the high "luck" factor, it's challenging but in the most endearing way. I can't quite put my finger on it, but it reminds one of end of pier/fairground entertainment. Clowns, dunking machines, and what-not.

    However, sometimes one just doesn't get it about certain games (for me, Zenonia). No harm in that.

    I paid $4.99, but wouldn't have hesitated at paying $9.99. :D

    Maybe this is it. It's not emotive for me at all. Some of the animations are rewarding and it's a neat little game. But without the back-history and/or youth connection I'll have to admit I'm struggling to be interested. Will keep at it for a few days to see what happens. The few power-ups I've achieved are promising :).

    I"m not sure about playing it on the Touch though, i first played on my click wheel iPod, and the kids were playing, and now the click wheel is broken... but the wheel made it easy (i should add here, i don't own the iPt yet, i did borrow my Dad's for a week and struggled with a few games in the control area).

    Personally, i don't like playing on the computer as much as on the iPod.

    However, it's also a good pick up and play when you just have a few minutes type of game too.

    Oh, I can't imagine playing it anywhere else. Part of its endearing quality, which I mentioned earlier, is its tactile ability. It's like that funfair game of shooting water into a clown's mouth, somehow.

    I see someone else posted a similar topic - Peggle for 99 cents. I am now wondering how many more "Doctor of the Peggle"s will be created, with the added popularity.

    Check out this reviewer, who is only one of 11 Doctors of The Peggle degree holders. So cool. :p

    OK I've played around with it for a few days and i'll admit that it's very addictive and cool. I've recommended it to a couple of friends now :D!

    I'm here in the UK. I bought the app from the app store the other day while it was still 59p, however, I checked my banks statement, and it looks like they managed to charge me £1.58 instead

    Anyone know who I can contact to rectify this?

    EDIT: Found it

    Peggle is fantastic. It actually is a tad bit challenging too!
