    Alright, I have the urge to play a game I played years ago. I remember it ran through the browser. It was a match 3, with balls instead of squares but like Peggle where you shoot the the ball from the top in a thing like that. I'd be really happy if someone can help me out! I don't think it's very well known either.

    Edit: it was also slightly physics based, as in you hit the side of a ball it'll roll down the balls until it gets stuck

    Edit 2: more balls came in rows from the bottom, basically you beat the level by getting up to a certain score I think. But the entire bottom was filled with balls, and like Tetris, if they touch the top it's game over

    No, it was on PC in the internet. Not for iPhone. And it was that but upside down.

    Zincous is right. There are dozens of twists on it, but I think Bust-A-Move is where it all started.

    Here's the original arcade game.

    No, it was similar, although the balls would roll down the other ones, and you shot from the top of the screen and the balls keep on rising in rows from the bottom. But it starts with a certain portion of the bottom of the screen filled with them to amp up the difficulty.

    Oh, now I remember! It was called PileUp! But it's more like Tetris than I thought it was. Anyway, thanks for your help everyone!
