Plants vs. Zombies is a highly addictive strategy game, requiring players to defend their house from zombies by using a variety of plants.
Walkers in the garden
Although tower-defense games are nothing new, Plants vs. Zombies puts its own stamp on the game by a perfect blend of addictive gameplay, comedy, and the distinct look of the game.
Even the zombies have their own style. Normal zombies just have plain clothes, but later levels feature zombies with pole vaults, screen doors, and buckets on their heads. Each additional detail to the zombies adds an effect like the ability to take more damage or only be affected by one type of flower attack.
Adventure mode in Plants vs. Zombies is long and provides hours to experience, and the quick play mode is opened once Adventure mode is complete.
How to mobilize plant life
The strategic elements of Plants vs. Zombies are slim in the beginning of the game, but in later levels there is a consistent tight balance between planting more defensive flowers or attacking larger zombies with offensive landmine potatoes.
The core of Plants vs. Zombies is to use plants to defend your house from oncoming hordes of zombies. The fun of Plants vs. Zombies comes from the variety of different offensive and defensive plant types and the immense variety of zombies that all attack the house.
The divine comedy
Plants vs. Zombies’ graphics style is recognizable PopCap style. Cartoon influenced visuals bring a family-friendly look to the game. Each character is carefully designed to maximize the core of the game.
Plants are easily recognized by their individual traits like sunflowers producing sunlight and zombie-eating plants featuring wide mouths and sharp teeth.
A game you can sink your teeth into
Plants vs. Zombies is one of the greatest strategy games available and provides hours of enjoyment.
