It was great to be able to play the game on a big screen. Plants Vs. Zombies started off as an Android smart phone game and despite the smaller screen, the game managed to fit as much action as possible on it. And trust me, there is a lot of action going on. The premise of the game is simple: Keep the zombies out of your house. By using your plants as a zombie fighting army, you slow, repel, and destroy zombies. There are many plants to unlock and some strategy will come into play once you realize that you cannot have all of your plants at your disposal. Anything from hot chili peppers to pea shooting plants, there is a wide array of attacking plants, trap plants, and plants that enhance security, visibility, and fire power. With only a few slots available at the beginning of the game, you soon come to the realization that the more options you have, the better you are off against the zombie hordes.
|Ahhhhh!!! Zombies in my pool!!!!|
Then there is Crazy Dave. As you progress through the game, Crazy Dave presents himself as a babbling man that makes absolutely no sense (thank goodness for the talk bubbles. lol) and he's more of shop owner than anything else. You can purchase plant and defense enhancements from him and provides more of that zombie humor that the kids love.
|Ahhhh!!! Zombies be on my roof!|
There are also a few minigames that are mandatory levels. The "whack a zombie" is a fun one and the young ones the "bowling for zombies" level. These can also be frantic since you cannot select the plants yourself. The available plant rolls up on a conveyor belt type thing and you need to work with what you are given. This adds a different twist than what you have been doing up until the minigame comes up.
All in all, I love the game. It's great that they finally released a Kindle Fire Edition version since it's better to play and watch it on a 7 inch screen as opposed to a 3 to 4 inch screen. The colors are vibrant and the sound is crisp and you can save at least 3 games. I haven't tried saving any more but I wouldn't doubt it if 3 is the max. If you haven't tried out Plants Vs. Zombies, you are definitely missing out on a great game! You can get the Plants Vs. Zombie game for your Kindle Fire or other Android device on Amazon by using the link below! Later!
