Plants vs Zombies 2 downloaded over 25 million times

1 min read


The original Plants vz Zombies is probably one of my favourite games of all time, ever. I own it on far too many platforms and have finished it twice on just about all of them. Its…ugh…free to play sequel launched recently,and according to PopCap, has been downloaded over 25 million times.

Of course, much of that has to do with the fact that it is free – but it’s still impressive considering it’s exclusive to iOS devices right now. and despite being free to play, it is still an excellent game, requiring not a cent to spent to finish it.

While I’ve invested a heck of a lot of time in PvZ 2, I absolutely refuse to spend any money – especially considering that it costs $2.99 to buy a single plant; which very nearly made me throw up in my own shoes. Had EA and PopCap made the plants 99c, I’d probably have picked them all up without a second thought…but at  $3 a plant, it somehow feels pretty wasteful.

Have you played PvZ2 (You really should!) ? Would you spend any money on it (You really shouldn’t!)?

Editor. I'm old, grumpy and more than just a little cynical. One day, I found myself in possession of a NES, and a copy of Super Mario Bros 3. It was that game that made me realise that games were more than just toys to idly while away time - they were capable of being masterpieces. I'm here now, looking for more of those masterpieces.
