Another week, another update for our “mobile browser game of the week” column. These stories offer bite sized games that we have been playing around with in our mobile browser on our smart phones. The featured title this week is non other than, Plants vs. Zombies! Plants vs. Zombies is one of the best titles around and takes the tower defense style of play and injects a nice dose of humor. Pop Cap games really hit it out of the park when they released this one and now you can play the game in your mobile browser.
In case you live under a rock and have no idea what Plants vs. Zombies is, players are tasked with growing defensive plants in order to keep zombies away from your house! The undead have invaded your backyard and it’s your objective to stop them. Use your gardening skills to set up the perfect army of crops and stop those pesky Zombies. Sunlight and gold will help you beat the undead in Plants vs. Zombies. Different plants have different powers and by no time players will be planting a number of different plants in order to fend off the Zombie infestation.
It’s a novel concept and one that has not only taken the mobile gaming market by storm but has spawned numerous toys and collectables as well. I cannot visit my local video game retail store without seeing a number of Plants vs Zombies items. Who would’ve thought that these adorable characters would turn into such an phenomenon but we are pleased someone had the crazy idea planting around in their head. The appeal of the game is wide (basically everyone who try it out ends up loving it in some way) and we see this one sticking around for the long haul. We have already seen a sequel head to the mobile market and even a number of spin off games like Plants vs Zombies Garden Warfare have seen the next gen treatment.
