I saw an article on Ars Technica which mentioned how a game called “Plants vs Zombies” was being released on the iPhone, and it was a fun little game. Always interested in fun little games, I thought I’d check it out. It’s released by Popcap Games, which is usually a sign that I’m not interested, but I gave it a try anyway. I’m so glad I did.
You can download the demo here, which is just a “crippled” version of the full product. I went ahead and purchased the game a couple of boards into the demo, before I even got to the crippled areas. That’s how fun it is.
It’s a strategy game, based on the Tower Defense model. Zombies are invading your yard and certain plants affect certain zombies differently. But the main game isn’t the only point worth plugging. It’s also got several mini-games and puzzle games which unlock during play, and those are just as fun. And, did I mention that it has ZOMBIES in it? That alone should sell the game to at least one of my friends.
For the price, the game is a must-buy. At the very least, check out the demo.
