Friday Fun ‘n’ Games – Plants vs. Zombies

Zombies are all the rage these days. Don’t believe me? See for yourself. I generally ignore the mania for the undead, but in the realm of gaming I have, alas, succumbed. To wit – Plants vs. Zombies the irrationally addictive game from our good friends at Pop Cap.

Not only do I tend to avoid zombies, I also dislike, nay, loathe tower defense games. But I guess the Devil1, as they say, is in the details. Plants vs. Zombies is immaculately well done and the creativity is evident across the board. Plus, it’s just plain satisfying to watch your well-placed tools of destruction cut down wave after wave of nefarious Zombies.

Full Disclosure time: The link here is to Pop Cap’s free online trial of the game. They are in the business of creating high quality games and selling them. As my wife can attest, I have played copious amounts of the paid game on my iPod touch. Those of you with iPods or iPhones will certainly get your $3 of paid entertainment. I can’t vouch for the paid PC version. The free web version? Um, it’s free. Stop complaining and go waste your time!
