Popcap-games Massive financial success is something that can still happen on Apple’s App Store. Within nine days after the launch, PopCap generated 300.000 downloads of their $2,99 Plants vs. Zombies game.

Plants vs. Zombies is the third PopCap game to rank #1 in the top grossing charts. At the same time, the company announced that Bejeweled 2 is their first app to sell 3 million units on the App Store.

“Plants vs. Zombies is our latest major franchise to make the jump to iPhone, and from the early customer and critical feedback it appears to be a great adaptation of the game,” said Andrew Stein, director of mobile business development at PopCap. “There's always a concern when bringing a computer game to a mobile, pocket-sized device that something will get lost in the process, but in this case the overwhelming consensus is that Plants vs. Zombies is even more fun on the smaller touch screen!"
