Dispatching the undead with an array of colourful flora has never been so much fun, thank to the incredibly popular strategy game Plants vs Zombies. Now Android users can finally get in on the action, as the quirky title makes its way to the Android operating system…
The colourful real-time-strategy game sees players trying to halt the advances of a horde of fun-loving zombies, as they attempt to invade people’ houses. The only way to stop this undead menace is with an arsenal of zombie-zapping plants. Players can utilise peashooters, wall-nuts, cherry bombs and more to stop the marauding zombies before they get to the front door!
The game is thought to have paved the way for the infamous Angry Birds game, due to its quirky concept, cute graphics and superb gameplay – which has been described as easy to learn, but impossible to master.
Popcap’s incredibly popular offering has been released on a variety of platforms, including Mac, PC, iPhone, iPad and Nintendo DS; it is now finally available to the Android-using population.
Those interested in purchasing the title can usually expect to pay $2.99, however, to celebrate the new release, it is currently available for free on the Amazon Appstore. The game will remain an Amazon exclusive for a short while, before being also made available via the Android Market.
Unfortunately for Android users in the United Kingdom who are eager to get their hands on the game, it is only available to users in the United States; there is an Amazon Appstore restriction which allows only American Android users to download the game.
It is thought that the free download offered by Amazon will not be around for long at all – much to the dismay of Plants vs Zombies fans with Android smartphones in the United Kingdom. To find out when this impressive game will hit British phones, keep your eyes on Dialaphone.
