    My review:
    I wasn't sure about this app I was told it was a good app but it didn't look like the kind of thing that I would like. Let me just say this... the screenshots that they chose to use of the App Store are horrible. The game is kind of like Plinko. You shoot a ball out of the gun on top and then you try to hit as many PEGS (hence the name PEGgle) as you can to rack up points. The main goal is to hit all of the orange pegs to get 'Extreme Fever' which triggers an epic, slow motion, bouncing of the small metal ball while 'Ode to Joy' plays in the background. When I first got this I actually felt like I accomplished something, little did I realize it was the only way to finish the level. On the bottom of the screen is a little hole that moves back and forth throughout the level. If you make the ball in the hole you get and extra ball and a point bonus. Purple, green, and blue pegs also occupy the levels. Purple gives you a point bonus on all pegs hit, green gives you a special ability for a few levels, and blue is just regular pegs.

    I was pleasantly surprised by this app. Like I said earlier the screenshots chosen are horrible so don't let those turn you away from this marvelous app. The price is unbeatable too, priced way under what this app is worth. There is no lag time, no load time, no glitches (at least none that I have found yet) and beautifully put together. What do you expect from a game that has already covered PC, Mac, iPod (clickwheel), Mobile, XBox Live, the Web, and now iPhone. They know what they're doing. You may also recognize the games Bejeweled, Bejeweled 2, and Book Worm, they to are all made by the same developer. If you are on the fence about this app, buy it. If you didn't even know this app existed, buy it. It's that good. You WILL NOT be disappointed by this app, GUARANTEED.

    Last Words:
    Excellent, easy to understand, addicting game. There should be no question whether or not you should buy it.

    Final Verdict:
    100/100

    Still a great game and one of my faves. Your review is weak though. Reviewing is about getting deep in there and giving us the real lowdown. Plus it would be useful if you could use the official scoring system (see the sticky)
