PopCap Games is the developer behind the very popular mobile game franchise Plants vs. Zombies. During E3 this year PopCap and EA announced that a new game would be coming in the franchise aimed at console gamers called Plants vs.
PopCap Games recently held a contest asking players to share interesting stories involving the company’s Facebook and downloadable game Bejeweled Blitz. The winner was a hardcore fan named Laura Sheriff. Her story? Her competitive gamer boyfriend Chris proposed to her after failing to beat her high score of over 600,000 points.
PopCap’s legendary tower defense game is coming to XBLA next month, bringing with it 2 player co-op & versus mode(!) and lots of fun-looking extras. Did I mention that you can play as the Zombies?
Yeah, yeah, this is old news, but I don’t care, because the trailer is full of win:
Move over, Puzzle Quest. You had a good run with the whole jewel-matching RPG hybrid, but the big boys have come to steal your throne… and rock our faces off. Gyromancer may be a little late (the Puzzle Quest folks already moved on to sci-fi), but it really doesn’t matter when this boat arrives.
Zombies have become increasingly popular in recent years, since everyone loves a good flesh-eating apocalypse, but the walking dead haven’t quite been used in all possible scenarios yet. You can even find references to zombies fighting Godzilla, for heaven’s sake (or a zombie Godzilla, which may happen after the aforementioned scenario), but rarely do we hear about plants fighting off zombies (or vice versa).
