In case you’ve never played the PC version since it debuted in March, Peggle can best be described as a modern-day pachinko amusement game, where you must aim and fire a silver ball at the top of the screen and watch as gravity helps it fall toward the bottom, hitting multicolored pegs along the way. If the ball falls into the moving bucket that glides back and forth horizontally at the bottom of the screen, you’ll be awarded with a free ball. The goal is to clear all the orange pegs before you run out of balls.
Because the game doesn’t require quick reflexes, which might be tough with the unit’s click wheel, Peggle plays like a charm on the iPod. The strategy lies in the direction you shoot the ball, and when and how to best take advantage of each stage’s mascot, a cute creature that can help you along the way.
As the silver ball moves toward the final peg, a drum roll crescendos into Beethoven’s Ode to Joy from the Ninth Symphony, followed by a rainbow and bonus points.
Along with its attractive graphics, Peggle on the iPod also lets you listen to your own music playlists while playing the game, and includes all 55 levels, 75 Grand Master challenges and a two-player mode found in the original.
