Barely 24 hours after posting that PopCap’s two hit games, Peggle and Plants vs Zombies, happen to be on their way to the Android Market they actually show up and are now available for download. Up until now both games had been exclusive to the Amazon App Store.
PopCap has just announced that they will finally be releasing both Plants vs Zombies and Peggle on the Android Market later this week. This comes finally after a very long exclusive period on the Amazon App Store where both games were originally released.
PopCap Games has announced a partnership with Sony Ericsson which will see Chuzzle, Peggle and Plants vs Zombies come pre-installed on the Xperia Mini and the Xperia Mini Pro Android devices. This means that European owners of these devices will be the first to actually get PopCap games to play.
PopCap games have finally released their third title onto the Android platform, again through the Amazon App Store. This also makes it today’s free game of the day over at the Amazon App Store so if you have access to it, and have been wanting this game, now is a good time to go get it.
Awhile back when news about PopCap getting into the mobile gaming arena with Android broke, two games were mentioned. One was Plants vs Zombies while the other one was Peggle. Out of left field arrived Chuzzle first with Plants vs Zombies next in line. PopCap has also now dropped hints that Peggle is to arrive shortly.
A while back when everyone was jumping on the Flash games support bandwagon when Flash was announced to be available on Android, one of the major Flash game companies, PopCap, announced it would be supporting/converting games for Android. Plants vs Zombies and Peggle were the first two to arrive for Android devices.
PopCap must be feeling a bit of pressure regarding the mobile gaming scene, specifically regarding Android. While other flash gaming sites have jumped on board with Android with full support, PopCap seems to have fallen behind after their initial announcement of supporting flash gaming on Android. Today they announced some good news though.
