'Plants vs Zombies' is fastest selling iPhone game ever The new PopCap release Plants vs Zombies has become the fastest and highest grossing iPhone game launch in history, with over 300,000 apps sold in the first 9 days, for a gross over $1 million.
"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," added Andrew Stein, director of mobile business development at PopCap, via GI.biz. "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."

Additionally, PopCap's Bejeweled 2 became the first paid app to reach 3 million sales.

Popcap can make a good game. This, Peggle, and Gyromancer are all pretty good games, in order of addictiveness. I suppose Gyromancer is more of a visually appealing game than addicting though...

last year i bought plants vs zombies on pc and I thought "boy if this game ever came out on the iphone i'm sure it'd sell like crazy" this game is absolutely awesome, and I loved it from day one. I found out yesterday that it was out for the iphone/itouch, I didn't waste anytime got it right away. This game is awesome and certainly worth every penny.

No wonder get over $1 million! Higher $1 than the similar game. Found some similar iPhone games in iTunes, not less than PVZ, but only $0.99. Like PetsWar, Angry bird, Leave Devil alone and Bone Bone TD. Especially, PetsWar own free version.
