About This Game



Zombies are invading your home, and the only defense is your arsenal of plants! Armed with an alien nursery-worth of zombie-zapping plants like peashooters and cherry bombs, you'll need to think fast and plant faster to stop dozens of types of zombies dead in their tracks. Obstacles like a setting sun, creeping fog and a swimming pool add to the challenge, and with five game modes to dig into, the fun never dies!

Features

  • Play five game modes: Adventure, Mini-Games, Puzzle, Survival, plus the stress-free Zen Garden
  • Conquer all 50 levels of Adventure mode — through day, night, and fog, in a swimming pool and on the rooftop
  • Battle 26 types of zombies including pole-vaulters, snorkelers and “Zomboni” drivers
  • Earn 49 powerful perennials and collect coins to buy a pet snail, power-ups and more!
  • Open the Almanac to see all the plants and zombies, plus amusing “facts” and quotes
  • Browse Crazy Dave’s shop for special plants and tools to stem any zombie assault
  • Amazing graphics and soundtrack, plus a bonus music video
  • Infinite replayability: the game is never the same experience twice!
  • Unlock all the Steam Achievements

Never you mind my Steam hours...I've got a good twenty or thirty hours up on the mobile phone version of this; a phrase which, in all honesty, you won't hear me utter too often (mostly 'cause it's the ONLY game I've played on a mobile for longer than, say, a handful of minutes).

So having perused the Menu and seen all the mini-games and modes available, and played nearly half-way through the "Adventure" mode, what differences have I noticed between this and the mobile version? Well, I gotta say...not many. I don't recall the option to "customise" the look of your zombies on the mobile version, but that kinda petty, purely cosmetic ♥♥♥♥ is all by the by; the simple fact remains that, no matter what the format, this is far and wide one of the simplest, yet cleverest, and moreover most MADDENINGLY ADDICTIVE real-time strategy/tower defense games you will ever play.

Is it worth another purchase, if you already have it on mobile? Hmmm, probably not, unless it's on sale, or if you generally prefer (as do I) to use a mouse rather than rubbing your grotty little fingers all over your telephone screen. Oh, and I guess there's the Achievements, if you're inclined towards such things (me, only up to a point).

If you don't already have it, buy it. If you already have it, buy it when it's a buck or so. It's a bit of a no-BRAINer, really (hahaha, I made a funny, look Mummy, I made a post-post-modernist zombie funny, ooh I'm so clever, look Mummy, me so clever, me so clever)...

Verdict: 9.5/10 (docking half a point ONLY because the pint-sized graphics look just the tiniest bit "wrong" on a larger computer monitor. But ONLY for that reason).

23 hours on this game on Steam, even more on my DS. I've beat this game dozens of times. This is such a charming and approachable tower defense game. I'm still really sad there wasn't a sequel. I don't care about the Garden Warfare games, the original is so addicting. Great humor and music, too. There's a really simple strategy for winning, but that didn't stop me from coming back for years. Great way to test the waters for tower defense games.

If you are vegan, this game will be perfect for you! No animals will get hurt. Cabbages, pea, corn, pepper and potatoes get hurt instead! Oh, and you hurt zombies using them, too.

This game is truly amazing, those who say its bad, They truly didnt live in the mario/old ages, Those people, SUCK FOREVER. Listen, if you were holding plants vs zombies and call of duty i would pick plants vs zombies. Its simply addicting but it gets boring after a while when you completed endless survival. i recommend this game.

Simple, easy, fun, tower defense game.

I like it, my sister likes it, hell my mom liked it.
You probably already own this game unless you've been living in the woods for the past few years.

I consider myself a pretty big Plants vs. Zombies fan having played through all of the games multiple times. That being said going back to the start and playing this GOTY Edition makes me realize I really want another plants vs zombies game that's not a shooter. I love the Garden Warfare series, but that's no reason not to give us release of both. The more fans the better right?

If any of you are not familiar with PVZ yet this is the perfect place to start. it really is as simple as Plants vs. Zombies.
