I could play by starting fresh with a new account, but i prefer to use my old one.
I don't know what the problem is. Try it on (somewhere else's?) wifi and see if it works.

This must be that thing where part of the game is downloaded after the initial download in order to get past the 100 MB download limit when not on wifi... but this removes the possibility of actually syncing the app to your computer to delete and re-install it later without downloading more monthly data usage away. (And if a game vanishes from the store...)
I'd rather they just make the whole app be the app...

Yeah I was going to give the game one more chance, went to download it. The extra maps wouldn't download. Tried multiple times throughout the day. Instantly deleted.

Blast it! What a disappointment.

Did a little test on the piata party. Went a full month of tapping the bottom right corner and never got the main prize. Before that it was constantly hitting that spot. As soon as my little experiment was over, I started tapping elsewhere and what do you know, the major prize is back in the corner 3 days in a row.
Also, with the introduction of gem purchased plants, there is the limited time plant on offer right now. I'm exactly 50 gems short. I've not won a single gem since that offer went on sale. My wife has won 100 in that time. Is it truey a game if it cheats by purposely making you lose and enticing you into making purchases? Kind of misleading. I dislike how it's suggested this game is how free should be done.

The new ice cave world enemies are a complete disappointment in terms of originality.
There are only 3 "new" zombies in this update and neither are original.
- Dodo rider: basically just a seagull zombie except with more HP but flies slower and can go over any plant except Tall-nut
- Ice block zombie: just a re-skin of knight zombie with absolutely no other differences. Even knight zombie is basically just a buckethead zombie with more HP and no new mechanics
- Hunter zombie: just a weakened version of octopus zombie that takes several shots to disable a plant instead of doing it in one hit. Guess Popcap heard the overwhelming hatred of that OP zombie and made a weaker version

Agree 100%

This game should never be held up as an example of a fairly implemented freemium game.

I just noticed that the game now disables my music from the Music app! I'm sure it didn't do that before... They... took away this feature...???

I still play everyday, but pretty much just the piata party on multiple profiles. Anyone else notice that if, when you pick your three pinatas, if you pick three on one row the fourth one you didn't pick is ALWAYS the big prize?

Haven't bothered to unlock the new world from last month.

Another update came out today btw.

This game is one of those games where you simply play to see what new plants/zombies are in the new update, then leave it there to bite the bust. Absolutely zero replay value, completely imbalanced level designs, right-in-your-face IAP model, massive loss in originality, not to mention that game-breaking bug where you're unable to update (had the issue as well). Does EA taint everything they touch? It's hard to associate this embarrassment of a game with the once-loved PvZ1. Purposely making it so it's impossible to get a pinata prize by assigning the prize to a pinata AFTER player input? Are you f*cking serious? This is like some 5-year old cheating at a dart throwing game at a carnival by gluing the target to a dart beforehand.
By the way the only way to solve that stuck at loading screen bug is to delete and re-install.
