PopCap Releases Zuma’s Revenge! ™ and Zuma’s Revenge!™ HD for iPad®, iPhone® and iPod® Touch

DUBLIN, Ireland—March 8th, 2012 —PopCap Games, the worldwide leader in casual video games, today announced the global release of Zuma’s Revenge! and Zuma’s Revenge! HD for the iPad ®, iPhone ® and iPod ® touch.  These action-packed titles, based on classic PopCap IP, have been optimized for Apple’s popular smart devices, and are available immediately for €1.59 and €3.99 respectively from the App Store, or at  www.itunes.com/appstore

Zuma’s Revenge! was designed specifically for the iPhone and iPod touch while Zuma’s Revenge! HD combines the small screen iPhone/iPod touch version with a larger format edition, optimized specifically for the HD iPad screen in one universal binary installment. With Zuma’s Revenge! HD, players get support for all devices with a single purchase.

“The frantic ball-shooting action of games in the Zuma franchise have always been some of PopCap’s most loved while always being at the top of the sales charts worldwide,” noted Andrew Stein, director of mobile business development at PopCap.  “We’re excited to bring these games to the iPad, iPhone and iPod touch to deliver adaptations that take best advantage of the touch screen capabilities of these awesome devices.  We know fans will agree that these are the premier editions of Zuma’s Revenge!.”  

Zuma’s Revenge! and Zuma’s Revenge! HD both  feature classic Adventure mode action with 60 levels and six bosses, plus Challenge mode with all 60 challenges and trophies as well as the ever popular Tiki Temple.  Also highlighted are the touch-screen capabilities, a first for the Zuma franchise, that usher-in a new, intuitive way to play.

Zuma’s Revenge! is the second installment in a franchise that has sold over 20 million copies to date.  It puts a new twist on the adventures of the ball-blasting frog who makes his way through a series of arcade-style challenges set within a tropical paradise. The game takes the relatively basic point-and-click premise of the original Zuma ® and raises it several notches by incorporating horizontal and vertical “sliding” as well as the ability to hop from one lily pad to another for greater flexibility and to reach all areas of the screen. All-new tiki boss enemies provide a climactic ending to each major stage of the game and introduce various new forms of attack and defense that must be used to succeed in the game.
