5 PopCap games for under £1!

by on 08/03/2014


Last week The Humble Store gave us an impressive deal on some AAA titles. This week‘s titles are from the casual end of the gaming spectrum but the deal is no less noteworthy, for multiple reasons.

You can pay what you want for the five basic titles in the bundle (Peggle Deluxe, Bejeweled 3, Bookworm Deluxe, Escape Rosecliff Island and Feeding Frenzy 2 Deluxe) so long as you pay at least $1 (60p).That is a pretty good deal if you have some spare time you want to sink into Bejewelled and I must admit to having a Bejewelled itch that needs to be scratched from time to time. However if you’re willing to pay the princely sum of $6 (£3.58) then you will also receive Plants vs. Zombies: Game of the Year Edition, Peggle Nights and Zuma’s Revenge.

If you happen to be one of the poor unenlightened souls who has not played Plants vs Zombies then I can’t recommend this enough. Every gamer should experience PvZ, hardcore or casual, young or old.


What I like even more about this bundle is that the good folk over at EA (the owners of PopCap) have decided to forgo their proceeds from this sale and the money will instead go to a pair of cancer research charities (The V Foundation & The Melanoma Research Alliance). It may be a PR exercise from EA but that makes not a jot of difference, everyone is a winner here: In the first 6 hours this sale has raised approx $100,000 for the charities.
