    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

    Ask a Zombie: “Please Make Sure Your Seatbacks Are in Their Full Upright Position” Edition

    Zombie had one too many brains last night so is not feeling his best. But that won’t stop him from stepping up and answering all your hard questions. Keep ‘em coming! ZombieAdvice@PopCap.com.

    Dear Zombie

    Do you like or not like how the general public views zombies through books and movies? If you don’t, do you try to disprove that view? If you do, do you represent that view? I would just like to know from you, because you’re cool.

    From,

    Mr. Anonanon

    Dear Anonanon (dee dee dee-dee-dee) Anonanon (dee dee-dee-dee) Anonanon (dee dee dee-dee-dee dee-dee-dee dee-dee-dee dee-dee-dee deedeedeedee dee dee deeeee dee),

    What you alive types think of zombies is not any of Zombie concern. Zombie not spend a lot of time worrying about how Walking Dead make all zombies look like extras from FM radio station Halloween haunted house. Zombie not go to movies and worry about Bradd Pitttt coming to save all humans frfom zombie (like he gonna stop brushing his luxurious hair long enough to do that). Zombie not going to get into all them arguments about do zombies run fast or slow or can fall in love with alive person (ew.) or be un-zombied. Zombie not even need peeps to tell Zombie what Zombie is cool. Zombie know that (but take the compliment anyways, TYVM). Peepul gonna do whatevs and Zombie too busy looking after Zombie (and looking out for dumb plants) to worry too much what some book guy thinks.

    yrs,

    Zombie

    Peggle 2 & the G.A.N.G.

    G.A.N.G. (Game Audio Network Guild) held its 12th Annual Awards ceremony last week at GDC (Game Developers Conference), and a little game you know and love brought home two of the big honors!

    This victory is crystal clear!

    The Peggle 2 audio team delivered work that did us all more than proud, and now they’ve received official honors for their achievement. If you’ve played the game, you know how richly deserved these awards are! Peggle 2′s music is, well, instrumental.

    Congratulations!
