PopCap Unveils Plants vs. Zombies HD App for iPad

Latest Adaptation Takes App Store Mega-Hit Game to New Heights; Highlights Multi-Touch Capability with New Features and Exclusive Mini-Game


PopCap Games, maker of some of the world’s most popular video games, today
announced its Plants vs. Zombies HD app for iPad is now available on the App
Store. Since its introduction on the iPhone and iPod touch in February, Plants
vs. Zombies has sold more than 650,000 units. With this latest adaptation,
PopCap is propelling the Plants vs. Zombies franchise to new heights –
delivering even more great gameplay and exclusive features tuned specifically
for iPad. The Plants vs. Zombies HD app for iPad is available for US$9.99 from the App Store on iPad, or at: www.itunes.com/appstore/.

"The iPad is a fantastic platform for gaming, and Plants vs. Zombies HD
allows us to show off the great new features and functionality of this exciting
device," said Andrew Stein, director of mobile
business development at PopCap. "In this adaptation, we’ve focused on the iPad’s
Multi-Touch capabilities and opportunities for new gameplay like the Buttered
Popcorn mini-game that will excite both new and current players."

The Plants vs. Zombies HD app for iPad offers all 50 levels of Adventure and
QuickPlay modes as well as Survival mode from the original Apple Macintosh and
Windows PC game. It also includes four all-new achievements (for a total of 17)
and 18 mini-games, including Buttered Popcorn – exclusive to the iPad – offering
frantic and fun gameplay where players attack zombies by first "buttering" them
up before firing corn-cob cannons at them. To defeat the growing hordes of
zombies, players can touch them to place butter on their heads. With the
Multi-Touch user interface, players can select up to eleven zombies at a time,
targeted for "buttering" by the powerful cob cannons. The game’s non-stop action
is presented in full 1040 x 768 resolution, delivering stunning visual effects
rarely seen in mobile gaming.

Originally launched on the PC and Mac in May of 2009 to universal acclaim,
Plants vs. Zombies was introduced for iPhone and iPod touch earlier this year,
where it quickly became a global phenomenon. The game reached the #1 position on
the App Store Top Grossing charts in more than 20 countries worldwide, including
the U.S., Canada, China, Russia, Australia, Germany,
Denmark, Ireland,
and Norway.
