Plants vs. Zombies is a tower defense video game developed and published by PopCap Games for Microsoft Windows, Mac OS X, and iOS (with the recent addition of an HD version for iPad). It's the favorite game to large number of people since its launched last year because of the cute cartoon style and the interesting gameplay.
And now, it will be more popular than ever after the five prisoners broke out a prison in Philippines.
Five inmates recently escaped from a police precinct in Cagayan de Oro City, snatching up the officer's keys where the guard had left them while playing a quick few levels of Plants vs. Zombies. Apparently, the convicts had no trouble getting the keys and gaining their freedom - although four of the five were recaptured shortly after.
Everybody knows that there's a certain risk one takes when playing addictive, engrossing games when you're meant to be doing something else. The prevalence of awesome games on the iPhone hasn't helped that risk - as a Philippines police officer has learned.
Fortunately, four criminals have been arrested, but there's one still absconding. The escapee should be grateful to developer of PopCap on his way to escape.
