Plink plonk. That’s the sound of 30 million people playing PopCap’s Peggle across all platforms. Released back in 2009, Peggle managed to replicate its PC success on iOS, racking up a ludicrous amount of downloads (myself included). To celebrate the monumental landmark, Popcap has released an iPad native HD version.
Including achievements, Game Center functionality and the ability to in-app purchase the expansion, Peggle Nights, Peggle HD is available for $2.99 (Nights will cost you $1.99). Move quickly though — those prices are for a limited time only and they’ll rise to $4.99 and $1.99 respectively.
For something even more addictive, Popcap has also made its match-3-gems behemoth, Bejeweled 2 + Blitz, completely free. There’s no reason why, although it could be a tie-in with the above Peggle announcement. That said, do you really need an excuse for awesome free games?
