PvZ app crashes during "Portal Combat" minigame.

★★ Novice

I'm running iOS 9.2 on a 6s, and the PvZ app crashes consistently during the "Portal Combat minigame. It happens when the portals change for the first time.

Same thing for me. This affects the paid iOS version of the game on iPhone 6 / iOS 9.2, the one that was finally updated recently for iOS 9 compatibility. Can this please be fixed? It's been almost two months. I'm stuck in my achievements progression because I cannot complete this minigame.

 

I've pasted the crash log below:

I am experiencing the same issue on an updated iPhone 6. I have tried to delete and redownload the app, nothing has fixed the issue. It happens right before the portals change locations for the first time. A patch would be greatly appreciated.

Grüß Gott!

 

Ich habe dasselbe Problem!

Pflanzen gegen die Zombies stürzt beim Mini-Spiel "Portaler Wettkampf" beim iPhone 5s und iPad Air 2 (iOs 9.3.2) immer ab, sobald sich die Portale neu platzieren!

Es ist schröcklich!

I've had the problem as well, even though I play Popcap's version of the game, not EA's. If EA fixes this issue, then so should Popcap. If they don't, then I'll email popcap until they do. I doubt Popcap will fix this b/c they took the game down. I still had it in my iTunes library

They just released a patch (07/05/2016).  Still not fixed.

Over EIGHT MONTHS later and STILL not fixed?  There's a word for this, EA:  incompetence.  I will not purchase another EA product until this is fixed, and I've been purchasing EA ever since Adventure Construction Set.  Get your act together.

Re: PvZ app crashes during "Portal Combat" minigame.

★★★★ Novice

I have to confirm that PvZ (iPhone and iPad version!) is always crashing when playing the mini game Portal Combat and portals are relocating. Please fix this! Thank you.

 

This issue is 100% reproducible on iOS 9 and iOS 10.

 

By the way, Please remove all cheater from Game Center. Keep it fair, EA!
