Joystiq has received word that Popcap's Peggle is finally making its way into the App Store on May 12th.
Joystiq can excitedly confirm that Peggle for iPhone / iPod Touch will be released onto the App Store on Tuesday, May 12. PopCap is still considering an appropriate price, but we can assume Peggle is not going to be tossed in the 99-cent free-for-all pile and will probably fit into a more "premium" price range between $5-6.
Pricing has not been determined but, for reference, Popcap's most recent iPhone release Bookworm [App Store] was introduced at the $4.99 price.
Peggle is an incredibly popular game from PopCap that was named in the "Top 5 most addictive computer games of all time." by MSBNC, as well as host of other awards.
The object of this game is deceptively simple: Fire balls into a crowded field of blue and orange pegs, with your eventual goal being to clear the orange pegs before the last ball runs out. This gets harder and harder as you move deeper and deeper, and before you know it, you’re hooked.
A version of the game can be downloaded for the Mac or PC.
