There are so many games in the iTunes App Store that sometimes it's really hard to figure out what to download and what's worth playing. There's also the dilemma of the age old adage that if it isn't broken, there's no point in fixing it. And, well, so many game companies have already perfected the kind of games we're looking for, so why bother looking anywhere else? Well, I can answer this one for you: do the words "free" ring a bell?
If you wish you had a free alternative to popular games like Plants vs. Zombies and Bubble Bobble, you're in luck! I've found exactly what you're looking for. Maybe. Take a look for yourself after the cut and save a couple of bucks on all those big blockbuster games with these free alternatives. Because you can't spell "free" without the "f" from "fun", right? Glad we're all in accordance here.
Software developer PopCap Games has announced that the company, beginning today at noon PST, is launching the third wave in a month-long series of online art auctions giving consumers a chance to bid on items from the PopCap vault.
The charity art auction items can be found at www.ebay.com/popcap and include nifty items like a Plants vs. Zombies Dr. Zomboss original concept sketch, a Plants vs. Zombies zombies concept sketch on canvas, a Plants vs. Zombies zombie head costume, a Plants vs. Zombies zombie DJ painting that is 6-foot-by-6-foot, a Peggle Splork concept sketch, Zuma Blitz ceramic tea cup and saucer set, a personalized sketch to be done post-auction with buyer input, and finally a Bejeweled neon blue diamond that you have to see to believe. Opening bids for ALL of these items start at just $1.00
After a successful first round of auctions that garnered over $1,700, PopCap is coming back with another round of materials to auction for charity. There are nine more items up for auction and there will be many more in the future. Thirty-four items are currently planned.
PopCap Games today release a major update for the popular Plants vs. Zombies game for iPhone and iPod touch. The update features new content like new mini-games and six new achievements. Players will also be able to grow their own Zen Garden, a feature only previously available in the desktop version of Plants vs. Zombies.
If there's one universal fact in gaming, it's this: we all want to know if we've earned a high score, unlocked an achievement or gained a new ability in the game we're playing and the sooner the better.
With that in mind, Mac|Life presents the 10 best apps to rack up Game Center achievements. These are iOS games we think harness Apple's Game Center to a killer degree and offer something cool in return.
The International Mobile Gaming Awards announced its picks for the very best mobile gaming apps of the year. The awards cover games from many different platforms including Android, Linux, and Flash, but unsurprisingly it's iOS that is dominating the awards this year.
Between celebrating Bejeweled's ten year anniversary, the release of Peggle Nights, and all that Michael Jackson hoopla, we’ve been hearing quite a bit about PopCap. Well, now the usually quite game giant is pulling out all the stops. PopCap’s fastest selling iOS game, Plants vs. Zombies, has gone on sale for the first time since it was released in February. The reason? It's Halloween!
Even if you’re just a casual gamer, you’ve probably heard of PopCap Games -- at least by some of their game titles alone. The company’s blockbuster hits include Bejeweled and Plants vs. Zombies, and their CEO recently sat down for a chat on the state of iOS gaming and more.
If you're a huge addict of Plants vs. Zombies like we are here at Mac|Life headquarters, then you'll love this rumor: a teaser image sent out in an email blast over the weekend has PopCap asking fans of the franchise to save the date for August 2nd. The image also suggests that this event might have something to do San Francisco, but that part is still unclear.
