The best puzzle games are ones that are easy to learn but difficult to master. Sure, anyone can beat a level of Peggle, but can they do it with only four balls? How about just one? Angry Birds allows progress by popping all the pigs, but those who really want to show the world their skills need to do it with the least amount of resources used.
