Pop Cap Games has fulfilled their promise to bring Plants vs Zombies to Android devices care of the Amazon Appstore, finally. In the famous words of someone I knew, "Its been a long time coming." And it has. Plants vs Zombies was released on PC May of 2009 and saw its first portable port to iOS devices in February of 2010. A year later it was released on PSN, DS, DSi and even as plush toys! Now we can add Android to that list. But come on! Plush toys came out first! (Check out what other unique PvZ stuff has come out here...)
Now that we have it, what's the big deal? Well, I was a non-believer and swore I could never get into this game. I played it once and have completely reversed my thinking. Its awesome! Funny, witty, slow yet quick. If you've never played it, do yourself a favor and don't start now unless you completely finished playing Uncharted 2, because this may replace that. I can't think of an XBOX 360 equivalent to the awesomeness that is Uncharted 2 because there just isn't one. We'll just use Call of Duty to save the argument.
We do have a problem with this new release. It isn't all roses and carnations growing in this pot. If you own a Droid X, Y, or Z you may not be able to play. Other unplayable devices on the product page include Samsung Transform and Intercept, HTC Aria, HTC MyTouch 3G, Sony Ericsson X8, Sanyo Zio, Kyocera Echo, and the LG Ally. There are no specifics as to why these devices have been singled out of the plant on zombie carnage, but as we all know by now, these apps must be optimized for each device. And same goes for Apple's iPhone and iPod line. There are now enough iOS devices and versions to exclude certain models in certain apps. My 2nd Gen iPod isn't compatible with the latest iOS 4.x and therefor I can't download quite a bit.
If Plants vs Zombies is on your wish list at all, jump on this freebie today and today only, before the Amazon cash cow eats your brains!
