I love this little casual game. I first bought it for my iPhone, and when I became addicted, I also downloaded the Mac version. It’s also been ported to the PC, the iPad and Flash so that it can be played on the web. PopCap made sure that there’s no escape.
I prefer playing it on the iPhone – this tower defense game variant really benefits from the iPhone multi touch display, and I can imagine that this could be a killer app for the iPad. The screen size of the iPad is perfect for this game, and it’s so much easier to play with the tap interface instead of moving and clicking the mouse.
Now what’s it all about? Like I’ve said, it’s basically a tower defense game. Waves of different zombies are trying to reach your house in order to have a little dinner party with your brain as the main course. To defend yourself, you can place different kinds of plants in your garden and backyard, including water plants in the swimming pool. There are peashooters, man-eating plants and poisonous mushrooms just to name a few. And there are football player zombies, lawn mower zombies and many others. Even a Michael Jackson Moonwalker zombie with an accompanying zombie ballet.
This game is not an interactive Alan Wake movie, but it’s real fun and great if you only want to play for a few minutes at a time.
Give it a try.
