General Information

  • Can I save my game progress when I reinstall my game on Mac?

So you bought a new computer, or you're upgrading to a new Operating System, or reformatting your computer, and you don't want to have to start your games again from the beginning and lose awesome high scores and unlocked game modes?  No problem! We're more than happy to point you toward the files you'll want to save to carry over your userdata for the games.

Your game's save file should be in the following location:

Mac OS Snow Leopard or earlier

Your User Name/Library/Application Support/PopCap/Game Name

When you transfer this file to the new computer, make sure to place the file back into the same directory.

Mac OS Lion 10.7 and later

The save file location is the same as listed above, but on Lion, this directory is hidden by default, so you will need to take a couple of extra steps to access it:

  1. Open the Finder and click on “Help” at the very top of your screen.
  2. Type in “Library” and click on the Library folder that shows up.
  3. Locate the folder Application Support/PopCap/Game Name

Once you have found this folder, you should see a sub-folder with a name like USERS, PLAYERS, or USERDATA.  This is the folder you will want to save to a secure location such as a flash drive or burnable CD-ROM.  You can also email them to yourself as attachments.

To port your progress back into the game:

  1. Locate your saved user data folder and drag it to your Desktop.
  2. Launch and play the game briefly to ensure the filepath is created again.
  3. Locate the Library/Application Support/PopCap/Game Name folder using the OS-specific instructions above.
  4. Copy the contents of your saved user data folder into the user data folder at that location.  It may ask if you want to replace existing files in the destination directory. Click on "Replace" for all files.

Please note: Some games' save files are stored in non-standard locations. If you cannot locate your files using the instructions above, please contact us!

  • My game prompts me to check for updates on launch. Do I need an update?

All PopCap download games for PC and Mac computers include a feature that prompts the player to check online occasionally for an update to the software.  However, there is no need to run the update check. This is merely an outdated feature.  Please simply click No and proceed with your game!

If you are having issues with your game, please feel free to contact us for assistance.

  • PopCap.com is no longer a sales website.

PopCap is no longer offering games for purchase directly from our website. We have partnered with many great companies to offer our games on a variety of platforms and will continue to do so. The decision to stop selling our own games from our own website allows us to devote all of our energy and resources to making games!

Looking for sites that offer our PC or Mac download games?  We are happy to recommend our partners!

For PC games, visit Pogo or Origin.

For Mac games, visit Origin or the Mac Store.

  • I purchased and registered the game, so why are some levels within the game still locked?

Many of our games have levels that are "locked" when you begin to play. This is because they are either more difficult and require the level of proficiency in the game attained by playing through the earlier sections, or because they are meant as rewards for achievements earned in the other sections. The appearance of certain areas of the game as "Locked" does not indicate your game has not been successfully registered.

For instance, in Bookworm Adventures, only Adventure mode can be played at the start. Once you have completed Book 1 of the Adventure mode, you gain access to the Tome of Knowledge. After completing Book 2, the Mini-Games area is unlocked.

In Zuma, there are some layouts in Gauntlet mode that appear only as "?" because they cannot be played until the game has assessed the player's skill level as advanced enough. 

So enjoy the challenge, and hone your skills!  You'll find that the games open up one area after another, giving you the satisfaction of victory as well as the enticement of a new skill to learn, a new tool to wield, a new boss battle to WHOMP!
