I'll be the first to admit that I'm a bit of an app junkie when it comes to my iPhone. Truth be told, most of the apps I download are free trial versions, and I delete some of them because there is not enough time in the day for me to play all the games I have on my phone. I do pay for some, but not many games.
My nerd was playing Plants vs Zombies on his Windows Phone 7 and it sounded cute, so when I saw it on one of my game Web sites in a trial form, I had to try it. Here's the thing--this game is addicting and fun. The whole idea is that Zombies are coming to attack your house and you have to defend yourself with--plants. Sounds corny, right? Well it is, but it's fun too. Using peashooters to save humanity is a lot of fun. Bowling for Zombies on the front lawn with a Wall Nut, is also fun. Using cherry bombs to blow stuff up? You betcha! Lots of fun.
Gamehouse has a free trial version for online play or you can buy a download for Mac or Windows computers. The trial version takes you through the first two levels which is actually a lot of game play. Google Chrome also has a trial version of the game in the Chrome Store. The game is available for a lot of platforms, including Nintendo DS, Apple iPad and iPhone. I'll probably be adding it to my phone some day, but since I played the first two levels non-stop on my computer, I think I'll wait awhile.
If you liked Angry Birds, you'll probably like Plants vs Zombies. Let me know what you think!
