App Store classic Plants vs. Zombies™ by PopCap Games is receiving its long-awaited sequel, this week. Plants vs. Zombies™ 2 introduces players to the world of zombie-fending that they’re perhaps already familar with, while adding some extra gameplay elements into the fight for survival.
“The zombies are coming … back. It’s about time! The sequel to the hit action-strategy adventure with over 30 Game of the Year awards is here.
Join Crazy Dave on a crazy adventure where you’ll meet, greet and defeat legions of zombies from the dawn of time to the end of days. Amass an army of powerful new plants, super charge them with Plant Food and power up your defenses with amazing new ways to protect your brain.”
Specifically, Plants vs. Zombies™ 2 will see you meet powerful new plants that will defend your lawn through time, including: Bonk Choy, Bloomerang and Lightning Reed …
… alongside a bunch of new zombies:
“Go toe-to-missing-toe with dozens of new zombies including Ra Zombie in Ancient Egypt, Swashbuckler Zombie on the Pirate Seas, or Chicken Wrangler Zombie in the Wild West.”
“In every new world, clever new zombies and brain-teasing challenges will test your zombie-zapping skills,” the company writes, as new “Plant Food” and “power-ups” take your game to new dimensions.
“Plant Food will supercharge your plants when you need it most. Use your fingers to pinch, flick and zap zombies off your lawn.”
There’s a number of special objects to collect, too:
“Gather keys to unlock brain teasers and new plants. Collect coins to purchase potent power-ups. Earn stars to take you to new worlds. Survive long enough and you’ll be rewarded with piles of prizes and achievements. And that’s just the beginning! The future holds many mysteries. Also, zombies. Lots and lots of zombies.”
Taking you on a journey to the Pyramid of Doom, and all the way to the Pirate’s Cavern, Plants vs. Zombies™ 2 is a ‘universally’ supported game suitable for playing on Apple’s iPhone, iPod touch or iPad.
