PopCap in the News

Happy March! Here’s a collection of the latest news from PopCap. Enjoy!

  • There were several updates to both our Bejeweled and Bejeweled Blitz iOS apps last week:
    • Bejeweled Blitz now has Rare Gem Streaks, the rare gem Blazing Steed and the return of stats. AppAdvice provides a full review of all the new features in the update.
    • Bejeweled iOS now has Butterflies Mode — try it now and save the butterflies from the hungry spider!
  • Bejeweled is also being used in a study by Dr. Carmen Russoniello of East Carolina University to help members of the military treat and control symptoms of post-traumatic stress. The US Army website wrote a fantastic article about his research here.
  • If you own a Barnes & Noble Nook, you’re in luck. Plants vs. Zombies has just launched for that device! Now you can fight the undead while you take a break from your reading. Get PvZ for the Nook here.
  • Marketing manager Scott W. talks about the development of our newest Facebook game, Solitaire Blitz, in an interview with Classic Game Room. Watch it below:

  • Lastly, just for fun. A fan mentioned to us that Plants vs. Zombies is available as a KFC Bucket Meal in the Philippines. We looked it up and it’s true. Look at this amazing meal — do you think they’d deliver to the U.S.?
