Plants Vs Zombie

Plants vs Zombies
Plants vs Zombies ... time to plant your backside down and turn into a zombie
Like a shuffling horde of walking dead, the march of Plants vs Zombies continues unabated.

Originally landing on the PC in 2009, PopCap's superb tower defence game was released in 2010 on iTunes for the iPhone where it broke sales records, raking in $1m in revenue in just nine days. Since then, it has spread to the iPad, Xbox Live and PSN platforms. Now it's making a bid to conquer the DS.
As with all of PopCap's titles, Plants vs Zombies straddles the core and casual gaming demographic with an enviable ease. This is a charming, easy-to-play game wrapped in cute, cartoonish visuals and eerily sweet music, yet it boasts hidden depths both in terms of its content and its tactically minded gameplay.
Plants vs Zombies The game's basic premise is simple; the player is trapped in a house and has to fight off wave after wave of approaching zombies. The zombies come in a variety of forms; some wear buckets and traffic cones to ward off damage, some sprint across the lawn in American football gear, while some float above the lawn using balloons. If the zombies manage to cross the lawn and enter the house, the player loses. To prevent this, players are given an array flora and fungi offering them both offensive and defensive options – ranging from pea-shooting plants, to immovable rocks to spikes which attack the zombies' feet. At the end of every level, they unlock a new plant and their arsenal of foliage steadily grows. They can also pick up coins from fallen zombies to buy new plants from the in-game shop, which is run by their eccentric neighbour, Crazy Dave.
The game's main campaign is a lengthy affair, featuring 50 levels split across five environments which are broken up by imaginative mini-games. Once they've conquered that, players can turn to several other modes offering up new challenges – as well as the opportunity to revisit old ones. The DS port doesn't skimp on content; all the previous features from other PvZ titles are present and correct here, including Survival modes, the multiplayer which first appeared on Xbox Live, the Zen Garden (available as an unlockable) and the mini-games mode which houses some nice twists on the main campaign and include the mini-games that have already been unlocked.
Plants vs Zombies There are also a couple of new and exclusive features for the DS version of Plants vs Zombies, including a mini-game in which the player uses the microphone to spur their plants on, a boss battle involving an airplane and a zombie creator utility. Finally, as with all the other versions, Plants vs Zombies for the DS also boasts the best end credits of any game outside the Portal franchise.
However, the DS title isn't flawless. While the stylus and touchscreen make for a decent control system – albeit a drag-and-drop one, rather than a select and click – it should be pointed out that this is the least attractive of all of the Plants vs Zombies versions currently available. The animation is far less smooth and when the screen fills up with the undead, the frame-rate can slow down quite considerably. The top screen of the DS also feels underused; all the action in the game takes place in the second screen and the only use the top screen has is to measure the distance between each wave of zombies. It's also worth noting that at £24.99, this is also the most expensive version of the game on the market.
Plants vs Zombies These slight considerations aside, Plants vs Zombies is an incredibly strong title for the DS. Mind you, this is probably because is it was an incredibly strong title when it was first released. Given the popularity of the game, it's hard to build a mental picture of the sort of gamer who has heard of Plants vs Zombies and has yet to play it.
If, however, you are one of those unfortunate folk and you own a DS – and you don't own any of the platforms it's already been released on – I urge you to pick up a copy immediately. Plants vs Zombies is brilliant; cute as a button, ingenious in its design and as addictive as any core title you could mention, this is one of the best investments you will make all year.
