I only have Rockchinko and really enjoy it. It's well worth $2.99 so I recommend people get it while it's on sale for $1.99.

Have you played both? I'm trying to make this decision right now myself, but my only experience with this type of game is the Peggle demo for the Mac. I really like it except for the audio clip that plays when you finish a level. From what I'm hearing, the graphics in Peggle are better, so I want to see what people that have played both think with respect to gameplay.

I'll be the first to admit i'm a biased opinion but lemme just say that I really like peggle's precision control and overall polish. I really wish it had some tilt control though because I find myself naturally tilting... kinda like when you go bowling and you want to lean over to the side to make the ball do the same. Personally I think the trajectory path line makes it a bit too easy and audio and music wise it's a little empty.

Rockchinko, overall, I think is more fun on the iphone/ipod BECAUSE of the tilt controls. Graphically, it could use more polish but I think gameplay-wise Rockchinko wins.

Adding to my biased opinion, i'll also say that a lot of complaints about Rockchinko was that it's not peggle and it's missing things peggle has and only a few reviewers (Albie included here) have objectively reviewed Rockchinko on its own merits.
