Plants Vs Zombies(PVZ) strategy Review
The tower defense genre has become one of the most popular and densely overcrowded game types in the casual sphere, its simplified battle strategy recipe attracting more desperate reinventions than Katie Price's PR strategy.

But few variations on the theme have proved as stylish and entertaining as Plants vs Zombies, another perfectly balanced, helplessly addictive super treat from the indefatigable Popcap stable. Released on Mac and PC last year to an enthusiastic critical reception, it has now shuffled onto the iPhone and iPod where it's set to attract a new legion of slavish followers.
Plants Vs Zombies(PVZ)
Your job here is simple. There's been a zombie apocalypse (yes, another one), and you must protect your home from the incoming undead hordes by nurturing various killer plants in your garden. Peashooters fire projectiles at your slavering enemies, while cherry bushes blow them up and walnuts (or 'wall nuts' as they're known here) stop them in their tracks for several seconds. At first, only a few seed types are available to you, but each time you complete a stage, you unlock a new plant weapon.
The catch is, just as you need to mine for resources in an RTS in order to build units, here you must top up on sunlight to grow each new vegetable-based assassin. This involves catching the sunlight icons that fall from the top of the screen, or planting sunflowers, which generate their own sunlight: a decent patch of these is necessary to really start building a strong leafy armoury.
However, tower defense games are all about balance and PvZ is no exception. For a start, you can only select six seed types on each level; do you go for the little ones that grow quickly but inflict less damage, or stock up on the big guns like the chomper, which eats zombies whole, but takes longer to germinate? Added to this is the array of different zombies – some wear helmets (or rather tin buckets and traffic cones) to protect them from your pea bullets, while others sport special skills like the ability to pole-vault over your emplacements. They'll all eat your plants when they get close enough, so the battlefield is a constant tug-of-war between your green fingers and their gaping, insatiable jaws.
