Update 6/21/11: The game just went live on the Amazon Appstore, go get it!

P.S. Unavailable on the Hero and XOOM but available on the Tab 10.1 and EVO? I can maybe understand the Hero, but the XOOM?..

Update: According to the comments, the game should work on devices listed as unavailable - you just have to buy it in the web version of the Appstore and then download as usual within the Appstore app. Odd stuff.

Phandroid's just been tipped that the absurdly popular puzzle game Peggle will be heading to Android (finally) tomorrow - via the Amazon Appstore. And it will remain there exclusively for 2 weeks - meaning European and other non-USA Android users will be stuck waiting for a Market version that should be coming July 5.

This, of course, is the third Popcap title to see an exclusive Amazon release. Plants Vs Zombies and Chuzzle were released via a similar exclusivity arrangement last month.

If you're not familiar with Peggle, check out Popcap's webpage.

    THIS IS AWESOME! One of the most amazing puzzle games of our time! SO EXCITED! Have been waiting for this since the birth of Android! :D

  • Jaime

    3rd....chuzzle....plants vs zombies.....now peggle

    • David Ruddock

      You, sir, are correct.

      Forgot about Chuzzle - fixed to reflect that.

  • John

    Any chance this one will be compatible with Moto Droid 1?

  • Nmea

    YESSSS!! I've been waiting for forever...

  • Grrrrr

    2 week exclusivity just like it's been with their other games? Yeah right. Shame on Popcap for neglecting most of the World. I don't stoop to piracy myself, but am aware of many who have due to Popcap's retarded attitude to non-US Android owners

    • Adam

      Pirates gonna pirate.

  • Zombiestuff

    Is their any reason we dont get iphone games like cal of duty zombies and fight night,id really like to see this happen

  • Sean

    non-us users can still get them using a fake amazon account

  • Matchstick

    Also marked as unavailable on the Transformer for seemingly no good reason ?!?

  • Zohan

    still no love for the non-US customers out there?

    what a way to encourage piracy!

    • Dave

      You have got to be kidding

  • sergiu

    you said "Update 6/21/11: The game just went live on the Android Appstore".
    Please change that to "Amazon AppStore", we don't want users to believe that Amazon's store is the default/best option for Android. It's not.

      Whoops, fixed it, that was my bad.

  • Force

    Why the hell is it supposed to be working on my HTC Magic, but not on my Dell Streak? *facepalm*

  • Scott

    Doesn't work on the Acer Iconia A500 either.

  • James

    I use a workaround to get the Amazon App Store in the UK but gutted to see it's not available for the transformer. First they do exclusives on app stores, now on specific devices as well?!

  • Astrowe

    i'm so sick of US-resident-only services it's gonna make me move to some random US country.. grrrr what's with Europe! people actually live there too if you didn't notice :D

    • http://www.AndroidPolice.com Artem Russakovskii

      Which US country are you thinking of so far?

  • Amazon Management

    It's weird to think there are other countries besides the US that might have computers or even phones. I know Canada doesn't have them because they're too cold and not smart enough. Isn't the United Kingdom just a Disneyland theme park? Every where else just seems to be places we bomb or should bomb like I am hoping we do to that place called France.

    • http://www.AndroidPolice.com Artem Russakovskii

      I believe it's related to nothing but legal. If it weren't for legal, most of the world would have already had it.

  • Astrowe

    yeah bomb us and we'll shut up :D

  • John

    It works on the Xoom. Just use a PC to "buy" it, then use the Amazon Appstore App on the Xoom to download and install it.

    • Matchstick

      Good call !
      Worked fine on Transformer after I "bought" it on my phone then just went into the MyApp section of Amazon Appstore on the Transformer.

      • http://www.AndroidPolice.com Artem Russakovskii

        Thanks, guys. Updated the post with this info.

  • Force

    Yup, did that a couple of minutes ago as well, now working on my Streak.
    However it was a pain in the *** to get a working proxy, as I'm not an US resident. For those out there looking, try UltraSurf (ultrareach.com)

  • Mgamerz

    Why are the graphics so terrible!? It looks like they stretched it... Seriously peggle, put some work into your games. A simple port always sucks. Plants Vs Zombies has the same problem.

    • Mgamerz

      I mean popcap* writing up words to get past the character limits
