Plants Vs Zombies Impressions



Today I'm going to be writing about a game that has become a classic on the iPhone. Plants Vs Zombies, a spin on the tower defence genre and developed Pop Cap Games, was originally a PC game but found new life in the hands of on-the-go iPhone players.

Plants vs Zombies has the player planting various plants -- each with special abilities -- to stop slow moving zombies from across the street from reaching your house. In the adventure mode, the main mode of the game, the game holds your hand and progresses you slowly by unlocking a new plant each time you beat a level. This works great for teching those who aren't familiar with the game how to play, while also serving as a well made story component.

The controls of Plants Vs Zombies work great. It really feels as though the game was built perfectly for the iPhone screen. Through my time playing I experienced no accidental taps or frustration.

Graphics wise, Plants Vs Zombies on iPhone looks just like its PC counterpart. Very little -- if any at all -- was lost in the transition from PC to iPhone and that really benefits the game. The sounds and music have also made their way over from the PC version of the game.

Overall, Plants Vs Zombies is a fantastic iPhone port. There isn't much more to say other than "buy it". One word of warning though: the game is so good that it is very easy to get addicted and lose track of time. But with a game this good, that shouldn't be a problem.

It's an AWESOME game. It should've sticked to porting to touch screen devices. I felt the pc/mac versons was missing out on not having the ability to touch. It was also great on the DS, cause of how convient it was to play multi player.
