I have to tell you about this casual, strategy videogame that enthralled me for six hours this week. PopCap’s Plants vs. Zombies pits you against a horde of zombies that are trying to reach your house and eat your brain. Your goal is to use a variety of plants, aka cannons, to destroy the zombies. There are a variety of plants that you can use with a total of 49.
The zombies also come in 26 different varieties such as zombie quarterback, cone on head (tougher than your average zombie), or my favorite the Michael Jackson, thriller zombie that sports a flashy red jacket and summons backup dancers. The difficulty starts easy and then slowly keeps pushing you. Each level is beautifully designed. As a fellow programmer I can tell the A LOT of time went into this videogame.
