Peggle Released on Android, is FREE Today from Amazon

PopCap released Peggle onto Android today through the Amazon Appstore and as expected, is free.  The game itself is pretty silly, meaning it reminds us of Plinko from the Price is Right, but with a unicorn as the host instead of our main man, Bob Barker.  Yeah, we get that this is one of those super popular games from iOS, but man, 75MB for a kids game?  OK, that may be a little harsh after just 5 minutes with it, so we’ll instead leave it to you guys to tell us why we should obsess over this for the next few days.

Market Link

Cheers EvantheGamer!

    Saved by the Cell (a weekly smartphone podcast) has an excellent interview with the Director of Mobile Buisness Development at PopCap Games on their latest episode.  They talk about Android development, as a gaming platform, and the challenges with the various market places.  A very interesting listen.  The interview starts around 14m mark.  http://bit.ly/lDBusI

    I precisely had to appreciate you yet again. I’m not certain the things that I might have used without those tips documented by you on such problem. It previously was a very frightening circumstance for me, nevertheless taking note of the very well-written technique you handled it took me to weep over contentment. Now i’m thankful for this guidance and then hope you are aware of a great job you are accomplishing training people today by way of your blog. Probably you haven’t got to know any of us.

    Love this game. Beat it a long time ago on my Mac, now its time to play through on my Atrix! I hope that Pop Cap updates their games with new levels every once and awhile, like Angry Birds.

    These Pop Cap games just destroy the RAM on my Fascinate.  I have to close everything and shut off all services, including the data connection, and they still crash.  The phone completely locks up and I have to restart from recovery.  Plants v. Zombies does it bad, often within a minute of opening.  Peggle seems less inclined to gum up the system, but still crashes it.

    posted this on the facebook post butif you are having an incompatible error, I know
    nook colors rooted have this issue and read the asus tablet did also,
    order it from the amazon website first, then go to the app and download

    They need to improve the multitasking on their games. Both Plants vs Zombies and Peggle have to reload even if you leave them for a second and come back. Even if you pause the game and turn your screen off it has to reload. Quite annoying.

      100% agreed

      that’s unfortunate… but seems to be a somewhat common theme in iOS ports.  You’d think if you went through the trouble of coding it for android that you could actually make use of the extra benefits of android.  It’s not just multitasking… I see apps with “back” buttons… all android phones have back button, there’s no reason to clutter up the screen with one.  Same thing with menu/settings buttons on screen instead of accessing them by actually hitting the menu button.

      These things seem pretty simple, yet they pay almost no attention to them.

        So I decided to give it a quick go.  I can’t tell that the graphics are that bad.  They aren’t as good as on the i*hone but it’s hard to tell if the just didn’t spend as much time polishing it or if it’s the screen.

        The fact that it only runs in landscape is really annoying. This seems like a really half-assed job by pop-cap.

      is it just me? or does pausing in PvZ and then multitasking solve the restart issue..

    Peggle is hardly a kids game, and it was popular waaaaaaay before iOS was even a concept. You the kind of “gamer” who thinks if a game is colorful and simple then it’s exclusively for kids? Mario would like a word.

      I’ve had it for XBox for years

      • JagoX

        Hell I’ve had that game on my PC through Steam for *YEARS*…they even did a “special edition” version for Valve.

        Me thinks Kelex isn’t a big PC gamer 😉

    been waiting for this game for almost a year.  That being said, i’ve played it to death on the gf’s ip4…

    still gonna play through it :)

    Pretty much all android games are “kids” games… how many of them warrant a “M” rating?

    Amazon won’t allow you to download Peggle to a Xoom.

      I’ve been playing it on my Xoom since around 9 am EST

        Amazon told me it wasn’t compatible with my device…I guess I will try again, thanks.

          My Xoom is rooted, not sure if that makes a difference here.

    • Kevin Radloff

      If you “order” it on the website then go to My Apps in Android app it won’t stop you from downloading and installing it. But it looks pretty terrible scaled up on a tablet.

  • Deanrossano

    This is as much of a “kids game” as ANGRY Birds is. Just my ¢2

    • http://www.droid-life.com Tim-o-tato

      No way! Angry Birds is amazing!! 😛 /joke

    • Whitl103

      People who aren’t good at Angry Birds think it’s a kids game.  Do you have solid 3 stars across the board?

      • Anonymous

        I would argue the idea that you can be “good” at angry birds

        any way, the guy you’re replying to is stating that neither peggle or angry birds should be called a kids game so i don’t know why you’re attacking him

    Did Plants vs Zombies ever get released? Neither it or Peggle show up in the standard Market, but I would be happy to pay a few bucks for each. I really don’t want to install Amazon Market!

    • macncheese

      why not?

      • Anonymous

        Personal preference, that’s all. I don’t feel like mucking around with 2 different markets, I’ve read complaints that sometimes Amazon installs/uninstalls break other standard Market installs (no personal experience, though), and I don’t fancy the idea of having apps that depend on a third party app to run (in other words, Amazon Market is a “one way” install, if you get my meaning).

        Silly reasons? Maybe, but there it is.

    • http://www.droid-life.com Tim-o-tato

      Amazon Market is great. Free games/apps. 
      Plus, PvsZ is still yet to release on the Android Market I believe.

        So PvsZ is out? I thought it was supposed to get general Market
