In what seems like decades, Pop Cap games wildly popular Plants Versus Zombies tower defense title has finally made its way to the Android platform via the Amazon App Store! If you’ve been holding out on playing this fantastic little game until now I highly suggest heading over to Amazon on your Android phone and downloading it pronto. To celebrate this momentous occasion, Pop Cap and Amazon are offering PvZ for free today, which is a savings of $2.99. The only caveat, like all other Amazon App Store promotions, is that you must have their app store installed on your Android phone for the game to work. If you’re totally against having more than one app store installed on your phone then you’re going to have to wait a few weeks for Plants versus Zombies to show up on the traditional Android Market.
I’ve played this game on 4 platforms now (XBLA, iPad, Browser, and Android), and I still find joy while playing it. The Android version seems to be very similar to the browser based version found on Pop Cap’s website. From what I can tell, PvZ runs perfectly fine on my HTC Thunderbolt with no noticeable lag taking place. The catchy soundtrack is in place, as well as the usual cast of zombies trying to eat your gray matter. The only difference that I’ve noted in the Android version versus the others, is the fact that the zombies seem to look a little bigger? I’m not sure if I’m going delusional or what, but those undead SOB’s look to have put on a few pounds for their Android debut. Make sure to head on over to the Amazon App Store today, so you can score one of the greatest casual games of all-time. You’ve been thinking that you’d be burnt out on Plants versus Zombies by now, but curiously you’re not…
