Plants Vs Zombies Adventures
But then Plants Vs Zombies Adventures came along and piqued my interest. The original Plants Vs Zombies was something I picked up on Steam during a sale a long long time ago and I was pleasantly surprised with how fun that ended up being. So when I heard there was a PvZ game on Facebook I felt compelled to give it a try.
Well if you were a fan of the Original this game is a lot more similar to classic tower defence games. You have a path that the zombies walk down and you place your plants along those paths to take them out. If they reach your RV/House then you lose and if you kill them all you win. The good thing is the games adventure mode seems to have a metric fuckton of levels despite only being in Beta and I can only assume more stuff will be added at a later date.
The other key feature of this game is the whole home garden thing.
All things considered it's actually a pretty fun game. You can add your friends as neighbours and help them out or send a horde of zombies to their gardens to mess them up so they did a good job of making the social element fun rather than crap and obnoxious although I've not really used it much.
So if you're like me and you have reservations with facebook games, then throw them aside and give this a go, I think you'll be pleasantly surprised.
