Popcap's Award-Winning Plants vs. Zombies Pc Game Shuffles on to Retail Shelves in the Uk and Ireland
October 2009 – Focus Multimedia is delighted to bring PopCap’s hilarious action-strategy game, Plants vs. Zombies, to store shelves throughout the UK and Ireland.

The crossover hit of the year, Plants vs. Zombies received a review score of 9 out of 10 from Edge Magazine at the time of its downloadable release – and went on to become the fastest-selling downloadable game in PopCap history. In fact, it sold more units in its first 90 days than any game they’ve published - quite a feat given that the Bejeweled and Zuma franchises have sold more than 40 million units between them!

Plants vs. Zombies pits you and an arsenal of wacky plants against legions of the “fundead” that are intent on overwhelming your lawn and making their way to your front door. Players can purchase and plant a wide range of lovable mutant flowers, vines, trees and other zombie-combating foliage to thwart the zombie onslaught.

As the battle wears on, you’ll see just how determined those undead critters are to snack on your brain. Additional obstacles and challenges include the setting of the sun, a creeping fog that obscures part of your view and a swimming pool that takes up much of your lawn.

Once you escape Adventure Mode alive, there are still many hours of gruesomely great gameplay to be had. Survival, Puzzle, Zen Garden and Mini-Game Challenges await you.

• 50 levels in the main Adventure mode and over 50 additional levels in the other game modes, with limitless replayability
• Over four dozen plants, from potato-mines, cherry bombs and peashooters to doom-shrooms, spikeweed and torchwood
• Dozens of different zombie types, including back-from-the-dead miners, businessmen, football players, even a zombie bobsled team!
• Crazy Dave's trunk-o'-the-car shop where you can purchase a variety of power ups to help keep those zombies at bay
• So frighteningly fun, you’ll soil your plants!
The family-friendly zombie survival game is attracting a wide following, from casual gamers to hardcore gamers of all ages. 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.

Plants vs. Zombies is already attracting multiple awards and glowing reviews from a diverse cross-section of media publications, from PC Gamer to The Sunday Times and Yahoo! Games.
