    Zombie Gardening Tipz: “Restless as a Willow In a Windstorm” Edition

    Spring is making attempts to spring, so Zombie is here to help you get your dumb yard in shape for the season while humming Rodgers & Hammerstein songs.

     

      • Dig up and enjoy parsnips left over from last fall. Zombie “enjoy” parsnips by feeding them to wolverines.
      • When soil is warm and dry, plant cold-tolerant crops. If soil not warm enough, use fire. Plants love fire.
      • Clean up the garden for the season ahead: Remove last year’s dead plants. Then remove last year’s live plants. Just remove all plants. Zombie cannot believe Zombie got to spell it out for you.
      • Keep planting basil. How deep can you plant it? 4 feet? 12 feet? Keep going! Let’s see stupid basil get out this time.
      • Keep adding kitchen scraps to your compost. Also, rocks and garbage.
      • If slugs and snails are wrecking your plants, high-five them. Maybe buy them a drink to say “thanks.”

    New Plants vs. Zombies Books for All – Even You!

    Hello Plants vs. Zombies fans, fans of the written word, and fans of fun things. You may remember that in the past we’ve talked about some of the fantastic and freshly blooming Plants vs. Zombies literature (maybe highlighted by the awesome Lawnmageddon comic from Dark Horse). Recently, a plethora of popping plant and zombie reads have come out – and you should read them! Cause they are awesome. Exhibit A: Plant Your Path:

    This is an honest-to-goodness Plants vs. Zombies choose your own adventure book! I, like most good people, loved choose your own adventure tomes when I was growing up, and this is a super swell one, with over 20 endings and even more middles (and Crazy Dave!). But don’t take my word for it – go read all the glowing five star reviews. And then go get Brain Food:

    Brain Food is a 224 page hardback (making it easier to write in) activity book for kids, grownups, and everything in between. It’s got all the puzzles you love, secret messages from Peashooter, zombie tales, and Snorkel Zombie in a maze! It’s ridiculously full of great things. And speaking of great things – and activities that are fun – don’t miss the Shuffle & Stick Activity Book:

    Hunt down the hidden tacos! Decode fiendish zombie notes! Help Crazy Dave with his shopping list! Do creepy crosswords! Walk the plank (but without falling into the water)! This book is puzzle-packed – and has stickers. I can’t really imagine a better way to enjoy an afternoon.

    And, to round things up, if you’re a younger reader (or know one), the sweetest little book just for you is coming out next week! It’s called Plants vs. Zombies: Save Your Brains! It’s an I Can Read Level 2 book, meaning it’s good for kids who can read on their own, but might need a bit of help – also, it’s the perfect way to introduce youngsters to Crazy Dave and the fun-dead!

    New Islands in Solitaire Blitz: Cayman Islands!

    Everyone’s favorite girl, Tara, is back with more Solitaire Blitz news!

    Is it purely coincidence that the oldest message in a bottle was found in the Baltic Sea the same week the Cayman Islands were discovered in Solitaire Blitz: Lost Treasures on Facebook? I think not! The very first Quest is called “Message in a Bottle!” It truly is a great story and worth the read, but don’t forget there is a brand new island to explore!

    Make your way to the end of the region map to find island #56 ready for today’s adventure!

    Ask a Zombie: “It Was Homage, Rowland” Edition

    Oh. Hello. I didn’t see you there. Me? Oh, nothing. Just thinking about stuff and wondering if maybe I should write to ZombieAdvice@PopCap.com and let Zombie help me answer some of life’s seemingly unanswerable questions. Maybe I’ll do that. And maybe you should, too.

     

    Dear Zombie,

    Do you like Doctor Zomboss? I bet you’re a hopeless brown coat wearing zombie who does everything he tell you to do. I bet you think you get all the brains? No you get 1%

    Sorry for you.

    eggabooha

    p.s what is better, chickens or anvils?

    Dear Egg,

    HAHAHAHAHA! Zombie knew it. Zombie am the 1%. Take that, all the rest of you! Return to your meaningless existencesses while Zombie go home to mansion on private island floating in the sky to dine on dry aged brains and bathe in dolphin milk.

    yrs,
    Zombie

    P.S. Depends. You want eggs or you need something to drop on a coyote in comical fashion?

    The Press Speaks About the Future

    Hey friends, last week of course we released the highly-anticipated Future World for Plants vs. Zombies 2. (You know this, I’m hoping. Unless you were trapped on a deserted island, in which case you’re excused but certainly I feel sorry for you.) And everyone is bubbly about it – the future is bright! But why listen to me? Read some words from the press about the first new world in PvZ 2.

    What better way to celebrate the milestone of 150 million worldwide downloads of Plants vs. Zombies 2 than with a HUGE game update? Prepare yourselves, zombie killers The future is here! Now live on the App Store and Google Play, Far Future World brings you 24 new challenging levels, eight new zombie-hating plants, 10 new brain-hungry zombies, and more!EIN News

    Far Future drags the zombies from the future to menace your lawn in the present. As always, these new enemies have more than just stylistic differences from their other incarnations. These zombies all have their own futuristic abilities that could make the game a bit more challenging. Luckily, new help is also available.Android Community

    The Zen Garden returns with more improvements since you’ve seen it last in PvZ 1. As you destroy zombies when you play, you’ll pick up sprouts that can be planted in the Zen garden. After watering them (based on a timing system), they’ll pop out currency and, eventually, a boost power-up, which lets you use a plant’s special ability immediately when you play it, all without plant food. It’s smart and satisfying to save these boosted plants for intense moments when a quick attack will save your game.IGN

    Far Future flings our heroes ahead into a world where bioengineered, genetically superior crops and plants are finally acceptable, if not necessary in the war against zombies. New plants available for defending  your keep include the Laser Bean, Infi-Nut, Magnifying Grass, and Blover. They’ll get to square off against new enemies like the Jetpack Zombie.Phandroid
