Given the success of the original Plants vs. Zombies game, which first landed on iOS almost three years ago, I’m surprised we don’t already have a sequel. But there is one on the way. PopCap has announced that Plants vs. Zombies 2 will be launching early this summer.
PopCap’s beloved Plants vs. Zombies has today been made available for free in the App Store. The reduction applies to both the iPhone and iPad titles, which were previously priced at $2.99 and $6.99 respectively. If you don’t already have it, it’s well worth adding to your collection.
After three years and having been ported to every platform under the sun (including, of course, the Mac and iOS), the botanical is once again ready to go head-to-head against the zombological: Pop Cap has just announced that Plants vs. Zombies 2 is “germinating” and will hit the App Store in early 2013.
There’s a new Plants vs Zombies stage, available only in China (for now) and only on Android (for now, we hope), called The Great Wall edition. Check out the screenshots for yourselves; we’re solidly on the fence between awe and confusion.
PopCap and Walls360 have teamed up to bring the the zombie apocalyptic hit Plants vs. Zombies to a bare wall near you. You’ve spent countless hours defending your virtual home from these hideous undead, now you can protect your real home with these re-positionable, self-adhesive wall graphics that will stick to almost any surface.
Plants vs. Zombies has been a smash hit on iOS for well over two years now. But despite its age, developer PopCap is still adding new content. Its latest update is sure to put a smile on your face, adding a new game mode, new minigames, more achievements, and lots more.
Hey Geronimo, an indie-pop band from Australia, have brought a number of iOS games to life for their latest music video that sees titles like Plants vs. Zombies, Flight Control, Cut the Rope, and, of course, Angry Birds played in the real world.
The humorous clip perfectly suits the band’s famously kooky image, and I think you’ll love it if you’ve played any one of these releases before.
As the resident dead head of Cult of Mac, I’ve always been a little disappointed with Pop Cap’s Plants vs. Zombies for the iPhone and iPod Touch ($2.99). It’s a great game, but limited compared to the Mac and iPad versions.
Great news, though! Pop Cap has just updated Plants vs. Zombies and not only it it getting some of the features it was previously missing over its brother ports, but it even is getting a feature that Plants vs. Zombies HD doesn’t have… at least for now.
Valve’s excellent Steam for Mac digital delivery service is having a Halloween sale this weekend, pretty much guaranteeing that if it’s spooky, on the Mac and features zombies, ghosts or monsters, you’ll be able to download it for the price of a Monster Mash.
If you’re a Mac gamer, here are the titles that are available at a discount this weekend:
• PopCap’s Plants Vs. Zombies — $4.99 (50% Off)
• Valve’s Team Fortress 2 (now featuring the Horseless Headless Horsemann in a scary new map) — $9.99 (50% Off)
If you’ve somehow managed to do the impossible and deny the temptation to download PopCap’s incredible horticultural zombie defense game, Plants vs. Zombies, jeez… cave already. PopCap’s just put it up for sale on the App Store for only $0.99. Prefer the fuller featured iPad-specific version? PopCap’s put that on sale too: it’s now 50% off at just $4.99.
Seriously, just go download it already. As far as I’m concerned, this is the best game on the App Store.
