So there’s this lawn, see? And zombies are attacking across it. And you use plants to fight the zombies. Also, this game is as addictive as crack cocaine.
Good old cocaine
Plants vs Zombies is a tower-defense game like PixelJunk Monsters, Ninjatown, and Desktop Tower Defense. Basically, the tower-defense genre boils down to this: You have wave after wave of monsters attacking and you build defensive structures to fight them before the monsters get to their goal. It’s a simple game type, but it can be really fun when it’s done well. The genre is especially prone to “Just one more level” syndrome, which means: Make sure you don’t have any pending appointments before you start playing.
“I’ll take care of this fire soon. I just need to finish this stage. Quit nagging!”
Plants vs Zombies is a great example of a tower-defense game and it’s really fun. Damn fun. It’s hilarious, it’s fun, and it’s got a decent difficulty curve that keeps it interesting through-out.
I’d say more, but I need to go play one more level. Or a thousand. Whatever.
Final verdict: …………… I’ll be back……. later…… maybe.
