I'm Totally Hooked On This Game

Finally a game that brings my love of gardening and zombies together in one title.
The premise is simple, you plant your plants which fend off zombies from coming into your house.
What else do you want out of a game?
I thought I could play this game passively, on occasions when I'm bored.
But like zombies to your brains this game keeps pulling me back in.

The game also feature the greatest, although most likely by accident, tribute to the late Michael Jackson.

That screenshot of the lawn can't be of an actual game you've played, right? Because: dude. You NEVER put sunflowers in front of your pea shooters. Sunflowers go in the VERY BACK, so they can be protected. And why are there no wallnuts in the front of the lawn, to keep the pole-vaulting zombies from running down the entire row? I mean, WTF!?

Ok, yes, I need help.

Alex said...

I've been so addicted to this game for the last week. I've beaten the game, but now I'm addicted to the Zen Garden part...

Erin said...

Ha! That's hilarious! Now I wanna play. Though I don't need another computer game to get hooked on...

Miss Mischievous said...

Now I can say to my best friend that there are other people that like this game! It's pretty cool the idea of mixing zombies and plants^^

anne said...

but you didn't link to it, so those of us who like new weird games can try it out. guess i'll be googling it.

Beena said...

One of my favorites was "War Of The Monsters"...very cool game with classic old Hollywood horror movie undertones.

Stimey said...

I also like zombies a whole lot. Not in a, you know, invite the undead to my house kinda way, but in more of a I-must-hunt-down-this-game-and-play-it kinda way.

ChiTown Girl said...

Cute game. Are you allowed to call something with zombies cute? Anyway, my husband is a big fan of anything zombies and loves games like that too. He likes to play Typing of the Dead.

ReNaTo UêGa said...

Jules said...

I LOVE this game! I've finished all the 'missions' but am trying to unlock and beat all the mini games so that I can get the gold trophy! :D

Life said...

lol, i have completed the adventure mode and all the mini games, was really fun and addictive, the only zombies that annoy me are the diggers, who dig a hole and come to other side ._. they are so annoying, can't wait for season 6 :X

I love this game! I've been playing for a month now! I am very glad it's not just me!

Abigail said...

Excellent! I'll tell my husband it's your fault when I'm stooped over my computer. "Honey, five more minutes, I swear!!!"

Autumn said...

This game is the best! I totally agree that it's addicting. And I love the Michael Jackson zombie.

Boof said...

I love Plants vs Zombies! I am in the second layer of fog right now. I can't get my sunflowers to produce fast enough. I don't know if the light would help. Very fun!

James Hernandez said...

Jorge,

Just like normal gardening here in Tallahassee!

Tina said...

SERIOUSLY?!

My husband started playing this about 6 months ago. Now I'm hooked too, and our 3 year old also loves it.
Between the three of us we've clocked a good 100+ hours. Its ridiculous.

I know what you mean about being addictive though.
At the moment my goal is to fill my Zen garden with plants earned by playing different levels, and to grow my tree of knowledge to 5000 feet (I hear that's the max for getting cool things to happen).

Awesome game. (And I'm not really a gamer either)

P.S. Unrelated, but I assume you've seen Dr, Horrible by now. Also very awesome.

Christina Bauer said...

OMG Where did you find this game? It looks so addicting and in such a stupid way! I wanna play it!

Dave said...

Ever seen "Zombie College"?

Jennifer said...

My kids and I LOVE this game!!!

Jason said...

Breanne said...

Saludos, Jorge!

PisecoMom said...

We've been addicted to this game all summer too - even the kids. A friend's 5 year old even chose PvZ as the theme for her birthday party yesterday! Check out the pictures... There are Zombies on My Lawn!

Nikki said...

My son LOVES this game. He plays it all the time!
