Plants vs. Zombies

By PopCap

Open the Mac App Store to buy and download apps.


Get ready to soil your plants in an all-new action-strategy game from PopCap! A mob of fun-loving zombies is about to invade your home, and your only defense is an arsenal of 49 zombie-zapping plants. Use peashooters, wall-nuts, cherry bombs and more to slow down, confuse, weaken and mulchify 26 types of zombies before they can reach your front door. Each zombie has its own special skills, so you’ll need to think fast and plant faster to combat them all. But be careful how you use your limited supply of greens and seeds: as you battle the fun-dead, obstacles like a setting sun, creeping fog and a swimming pool add to the challenge. And with five game modes to dig into, the fun never dies!

This game is the best tower defense game out there. much better than bloons tower defense 1, 2, 3, and 4. If you are thinking about getting this game, get it. after the main story is completed, otherwise known as adventure mode, you can either replay the adventure mode, which is harder than the first time you completed it, play the mini games again, which you play every fifth level and last level of the place you are in in the adventure mode like day, night pool, fog, and roof. you can also play survial and puzzle mode. this game is a must get. on the popcap website they sell the same exact game as this for double of what is sold on the app store for the mac. game runs perfectly on my mac. i am currently running the lion software. get this game

Should come with addiction warning

I've heard about this game for a long time, but I didn't get it for myself. I bought it for my girlfriend because she wanted it so much, and she got a cute little sunflower with it. Ok, so I watched. When I started offering strategy tips over her shoulder, I downloaded it. I quickly went from "cute little game" to considering the pros and cons of peppers vs. cherry bombs (long line explosion vs. wide area) as I drove down the street. Yeah, it's *that* addictive. If you don't have ample spare time this may not be the game for you. But I mostly use it to unwind - it's sweet, cute and a total slaughterhouse for zombies. What more could you possibly ask for? Rock n Roll!

Three stars bc I already loved it

Another review, September 2012: Seriously. Update the graphics. KTHX.

Original Review, June 2012: Yes, I fell in love with this game on my iPad. Then I bought it for my MacBook. I'm stunned -- stunned! -- at the lack of graphics improvement made between the platforms. At the very least, the MacBook version should be full screen. I'd like it if were hd, or just not pixillated. This version is, quite literally, like using an iPad with a pointer onscreen.

This is still a great game. If you haven't played it, you should, and soon. If you have an iPad, though, buy the iPad version. Until the developers improve the graphics, this version isn't worth buying.

I think that this game may always be better with a touchscreen. Using the mouse here kills me. It really does.
