Peggle is just the most wonderful thing. It's a very simple puzzle game tasking you with hitting all of the orange pegs on the screen before you run out of balls. That's it, and I'm basically hopelessly addicted. I've got it on just about every system its released for and its the ultimate way to clear a bit of frustration at the end of a day.
And now, my addiction has yet more fuel. Peggle is on my mobile.
PopCap just released Peggle Blast for iOS and Android. And guess what, it's a blast!
It's the first time the game has been built entirely for mobile and the new touch controls work great, with a strong slide and tap action. The screen real estate is put to great use and though the graphics may not be quite as shiny as the Xbox One or PS4 version they're more than up to the task.
But the most important part is that the physics feel right, the ball bounces as it should and ODE TO JOY PLAYS WHEN YOU GET ALL OF THE PEGS!
There are even new masters with new powers ups to find along the way and all new challenges. The game does have microstransactions but I'm positive you'll have enough fun with the free parts to totally get your value for money.
Peggle Blast is on the Google Play store and Apple App Store right now!
