I have to admit, when I first saw this in desktop PCs I was not impressed. When I played it in my iTouch, I realized how enjoyable this game is. I was not able to write a review on it after finishing the game in my iTouch but I am doing it now after I recently finished playing it in my Android phone.
The game features a horizontal tower defense type of game pitting plants versus zombies. Stem a zombie attack, soil your plants and finish them all off. In your 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.
Using the right plants can help you finish the game. They even have a night feature when mushrooms are awake. Thankfully, Popcap ported a high resolution version for my Samsung Galaxy S2. I did not waste time installing the game right away.
Each zombie has its own special skills, so you’ll need to think fast and plant faster to combat them all. It takes strategy to finish a level. And maybe a little luck if all else fails.
Another tower defense type of game is now available for the iTouch called Garden War. The graphics is cute, goes well with its music and sound effects. You are given at least 5 types of weapons to place strategically anywhere on the map destroying enemy insects as they pass along the road on to their destination, your garden. Every insect that reaches its destination will deduct your so called flower health. If you run out of health, then the game is over. Garden War gives you three modes to play, easy, normal and hard. The game does what other tower defense games lets you do with one unique exception. So far, out of all the iTouch games that I played featuring tower defense style of game play (e.g. The Creeps), this one has a unique option to upgrade your weaponry to have more firepower and weaponry.
Every pest you destroy, your experience level goes up. Once it becomes full, you can the choose among the experience options to upgrade your weapons. Be it having additional experiences to gain whenever a pest is destroyed or more cash totally depends with you. So choose wisely. My complaint with this game is that there is no way to restart the level. Seeing as how it is hard to place a unit anywhere on the map (you would have to drag the unit in order to place it. Problem is, sometimes I cannot see clearly if the unit will be placed at the location where I want because my finger covers the unit weapon entirely). Still, it is a very good game that you should have.
