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.

Sounds like fun to us. Although the app is not available for Apple devices as of yet, we can imagine it’s only a matter of time. Will you be downloading Pokemon Jukebox?
It’s that time again my friends, time where we bring you our mobile game of the week! We have been running this little feature for the past couple of weeks so we thought we would highlight another mobile browser game. Sure there are a ton of games for your smartphone BUT if you’re looking for something to play that you don’t have to download, just open up your mobile browser and check out some of these titles.
Following today’s announcement of Nintendo making a splash into the Smartphone market, it has been confirmed that the first Nintendo Smartphone games will be released later this year. The company hasn’t revealed any hints as to which game franchise will be released first, but it will certainly be interesting to see which series makes its debut on the mobile platform. If we were to make a guess, we would put our money on a puzzle title.
Telltale has announced that Tales from the Borderlands- Episode 2 is coming soon. The name of the second episode will be “Tales from the Borderlands-Episode 2- Atlas mugged” and has been announced via Twitter.
