It seems that no matter where you shop for apps, PopCap is there. Steam, the iTunes Store, and even Amazon’s Android App Store have all featured the company’s games. Only the official Android Market has been left behind, leaving fans to make due with just Bejeweled 2.
Now that has changed, as PopCap has introduced two of its greatest hits – Plants vs. Zombies and. These excellent games have just made it to the official market and are each priced at $2.99, making these among the least expensive renditions of each game (though Peggle is available on the iTunes Store for $0.99)
While these games were developed by PopCap, they are being distributed on the market by Electronic Arts. It doesn’t appear that the mechanics or content of either game has been altered for the mobile platform. These are full-fledged versions of the originals, but don’t look for any notable new content except for device-specific touch controls.
You will need Android version 2.2 or better to play these games. Official support is extended only to devices with HVGA, FWVGA-WVGA or qHD resolution. Keen eyes will note this means there is no official tablet support. The game may run, but graphics quality will be compromised.
User reviews are showing that Droid X2 users are having problem as well, so you may want to wait a few weeks if you use that device.
