PopCap: Peggle for iPad coming “soon”

PopCap Games, developer of highly-acclaimed games including Plants vs. Zombies and Bejeweled 2, has revealed in an e-mail that it “soon” plans to release an iPad-native version of its award-winning Peggle. Following its release on PC and Mac platforms, Peggle was released as a Click Wheel iPod Game where it truly took off, receiving our iPod Game of the Year Award before making its way to the iOS platform as an iPhone and iPod touch version, then adding the semi-sequel Peggle Nights as additional downloadable content. The iPad version would likely follow Plants vs. Zombies in being a standalone “HD” version, using touch-optimized content from the Mac game that was released years ago.

Well, it’s a great game, but it’d be nice to see them making a genuinely new Peggle sequel or PvZ2, or Zuma for iOS devices. Still, I’m sure this will be polished and a lot of fun.

I loved PvZ on the iPad, and even though regular Peggle scaled up nicely on the iPad’s display, an iPad native version would be cool.

I just wish PopCap would start making Universal versions instead of making those of us with multiple devices cough up cash two times. Ah, well…
