“Plants vs. Zombies sold more briskly in its first 90 days of online availability than any previous game we’ve published, including Bejeweled 2, Bejeweled Twist, Bookworm Adventures and Peggle Nights,” noted Ben Rotholtz, vice president of Marketing at PopCap. “In fact, our family-friendly zombie game now accounts for nine of the ten biggest-grossing single sales days in PopCap’s ten-year history, which is quite a feat given that the Bejeweled and Zuma franchises have sold more than 40 million units between them.”

Conceived and designed by George Fan (who also created Insaniquarium™), Plants vs. Zombies pits you against legions of invading “fundead” bent on overwhelming your lawn and making their way to your front door. Players purchase and plant a wide range of lovable mutant flowers, vines, trees and other zombie-combating vegetation to thwart the zombie onslaught. With five different modes of play including several dozen mini-games and puzzles – plus infinitely replayable Adventure and Survival modes, Plants vs. Zombies has attracted a wide following, from 6-year olds to great-grandmothers. Numerous video tributes and highlight reels from fans – as well as the game’s music video, which has been viewed more than 2 million times across the Web – can be found on YouTube.

PopCap today also announced that Plants vs. Zombies is being adapted for the iPhone and iPod touch, and is expected to become available for those devices via App Store launch around the end of this year. No other details of the iPhone/iPod touch adaptation of the game were disclosed.
