iPad App Review: Plants Vs. Zombies HD

The ultimate goal of the game is to prevent zombies from entering your home in each level. Should they succeed, you will die.

The game starts out with a few semi-harmless zombies and some less-than-potent plants that you will need to attack and kill the oncoming onslaught of the undead. As you level up, the zombies become more menacing and the plants more lethal.

Your biggest challenges will be deciding how many sunflowers to plant, figuring out how to protect them, and picking plants to use in your arsenal of attack for each level. Don’t forget that you will need the sunflowers to buy the plants you need. Also, the plants you choose for each level will vary on whether it’s day or night, and their ability to kill depends on the zombies you’re fighting against.

As you level up in the game’s adventure mode, you get access to plant new types of flowers and other zombie thwarting weapons. As you get into the higher levels, you get a much better arsenal, but the brings in different types of zombies making the game more of a challenge. An example, there is a zombie which holds a screen door that blocks you from shooting peas at it. There’s also a football player zombie which runs faster than other zombies.
