Plants Vs. Zombies 2, who would have thought that they would make a sequel to the ridiculously addictive game, Plants Vs. Zombies. The second one is the first game and more. I've been playing Plants Vs. Zombies 2 for the past couple days on my iPhone 5, and I felt the need to do a little review on it. I haven't played completely through the game yet but these are my thoughts thus far, at the very least.
As I said above I've been playing it for the past couple days, and they've made a few changes between this one and the first one. The first one was pretty straight forward, and fun. Well in the second one you travel through time with Dave (the guy with the pot on his head), to find Dave's taco, so he can eat it again. Yes I said "again". It's actually quite entertaining how they go about the story. The actual title of the game is Plants Vs. Zombies 2 It's About Time. Basically you travel through time fighting zombies in different eras. You start off in present time, then you go back to Ancient Egypt, and you move from there.
There are the basic similarities, you plant different plants to either get more sun rays, or to fight zombies. The biggest differences I've found so far, other than the time traveling thing, are that there are new plants to play with, and now there are different power ups. The first one you'll see is the plant food, that boosts the rate of fire for the different plants. The next biggest difference I noticed was that now the user can interact, and fight the zombies with different abilities. One is the pinch, you literally pinch the screen to kill zombies. The second is the throw ability, you toss them off the screen. You swipe across the zombie, and it kicks them in the air, you swipe again and it throws them off the screen. The third is the zap ability, once you activate it you just swipe across the screen where the zombies are, and it zaps them into dust. It's quite entertaining to do all of these.
Overall I'm enjoying the game, and suggest it to anyone who played the first one. As I play on in the game, and if I notice any other big things about the game, I'll do another post about it.
