32-bit Games ‘Plants vs Zombies’, ‘Peggle Classic’, and ‘Solitaire Blitz’ disappear from Apple’s App Store

“The 32-bit scythe has claimed 3 more games today, PopCap’s Solitaire Blitz, Peggle Classic, and the paid version of Plants vs Zombies,” Tasos Lazarides reports for TouchArcade.

“PopCap just announced that it will remove those three games from the App Store and Google Play today, but the games are already gone (at least from the App Store),” Lazarides reports. “So, if you were hoping to grab them before they disappear, you’re out of luck. ”

  1. Huh? PopCap has been long gone as a company when EA bought them out and absolutely RUINED these games by loading them with In-App purchases.

    I’ve been keeping the packages safe but since they’re 32 bits they won’t work in iOS 11. Sad.
