In 2009, a new game, Plants vs Zombies was released and it became an instant hit. The game is a classic defense tower game, whereby you have to protect your domain from intrusion by the enemy. However, as games go, there was a new twist to this game. The game has 5 or 6 rows of lawn, where the zombies hobble along, looking for a way to get into your home.
The plants in the lawns were used as weapons. The sunflowers would radiate high power sun rays; potatoes would explode killing the zombies. There would be peashooters, and boomerangs. All these were designed to keep the zombies out.
The sequel of the game, Plants vs. Zombies 2, is somewhat different.
Plants vs Zombies 2, designed for iPad and iPhone, is given free on iOS, although there are various in-app merchandising avenues. The levels in this game will give you a reward of 100 games, when you complete them. The coins are used to buy special powers as you encounter the zombies. This version of the game is set in ancient Egypt, and allows you to pass through time to the present day.
The story behind the game is that Crazy Dave gets to go back in time so as to eat a particularly tasty taco that he once had. However, when inside the time-travelling camper van, a miscalculation takes him to ancient Egypt, which is overrun with mummies. The mummies replace the zombies of the first series. The lawn that was used in the first series is now replaced by stones from the pyramids of Egypt. You are supposed to go from Ancient Egypt, to the deck of a pirate ship and then end up in the Wild West.
Each of the levels has got their own unique mummies. There is a sarcophagus that has a mummified creature inside it. In the Wild West, you will get a honky-tonk player who makes the zombies to switch lanes, and on the pirate ship, there is a pirate who rides a huge seagull. The kinds of plants that you can use to fight the zombies also depend on the level in which you are in. The beauty of the game is that you can play each level, as best as you can, and if you find the challenges too difficult, you can easily use special powers to wipe out the zombies and proceed to the next level.
There is no news on the release date of Plants vs Zombies 2 on the Android OS platform. Neither there is news on the Plants vs Zombies 2 release date for MAC or PC. Some also assume, this is going to be a long wait since the same has happened when the first version of Plants vs Zombies was released.
