Plants vs Zombies is pure tower defense joy – what could be more entertaining than killing zombies with the power of your perfectly planned garden? If you haven’t played the full game, you can now grab it for the low low price of… Free!
Head on over to the Origin store, and you will find that the Standard Edition for PC and Mac is being offered on the house. You will need the Origin client to download the game, but at least you can grab it and play to your heart’s content. The offer lasts until 28 May 2014, so be sure to redeem it now – you can later download it to add to the permanent backlog. For those who have lived in a cave lately, here’s the game’s explanation:
Get ready to soil your plants in an all-new action-strategy game from PopCap! A mob of fun-loving zombies is about to invade your home, and your only defense is an arsenal of 49 zombie-zapping plants. Use peashooters, wall-nuts, cherry bombs and more to slow down, confuse, weaken and mulchify 26 types of zombies before they can reach your front door. Each zombie has its own special skills, so you’ll need to think fast and plant faster to combat them all. But be careful how you use your limited supply of greens and seeds: as you battle the fun-dead, obstacles like a setting sun, creeping fog and a swimming pool add to the challenge. And with five game modes to dig into, the fun never dies!
I’m such a tower defense fan, it’s actually quite sad. I just can’t get enough of them – I used to play all the flash ones on Kongregate back in the day. Now, I limit myself to one on my iPad at any given time. Are you a fan of the genre, or is this all just a bunch of filthy casual stuff to you?
