It did reach the #1 spot on the german app store. and is on the #2 spot in the highest grossing list after Navigon. Kudos to Popcap.
#1 in ten countries
#2 in six countries
#3 in five countries
#4 in three countries
#5 in three countries.
And very high in a lot of other countries.
I think they have found themselves a winner!

One of the advantages for Popcap is that they had such a following of the game prior to its release. Every other review I read talks about having "Played the PC version and loved it" Many buyers didn't have to wonder if they were spending bad money since they had essentially played the game already.
Either way I've got my copy now (bought it last night) and I have very few preconceived notions since I haven't played the PC version. We'll see if it makes it onto my one page of "games I hardly ever delete from". Or maybe I'll have to start a second page just for PvZ
Whenever I see "PvZ" I just start thinking Starcraft. Jaedong vs. Bisu! Gogo!
In all truth, I'm just still agape at the fact that popcap actually released this game.
...it's pretty awesome, too.
Question: Does anyone end up taking advantage of the lawn mowers at the end of a level? Or does your plant setup work so well you do not need the mowers?
