There's zombies on the lawn! Plants vs. Zombies now available on the Marketplace

As the 6 Weeks of Must-Have Games draws near its end, Popcap’s Plants vs Zombies is finally available on the Marketplace.

Plants vs. Zombies is a tower defense game like no other. Zombies are invading the player’s home, and only a host of attack plants will fend them off. The variety of towers, err, plants at your disposal (49 in all!) is amazing and allows for all kinds of strategies. Adventure Mode’s 50 levels will take a fair while to plow through, but that’s only half the game. 19 unlockable minigames really do flesh out the package and keep the fun going. Even when you’re not playing, don’t be surprised if the catchy soundtrack (including a brilliant music video during the end credits) gets stuck in your head.

Plants vs. Zombies costs $4.99 on Windows Phone and there is a free trial. Harvest it here (opens in new tab) (Zune link) on the Marketplace.

  • Braaaaaains.
  • Bought the game simply for the awesome cartoony graphics (and after playing a few levels). Enjoying it so far.Heck, even bought Bejeweled too. Just take my money Popcap!
  • SMH, another tower defense game. Meh.
  • Play it. It doesn't feel like a traditional tower-defense.
  • Unfortunately I bought this on my iPod Touch before I got my phone. I was just playing it last night and absolutely love it, but I can't quite bring myself to buy it again.
  • I bought the game as soon as i saw this post. Always been a huge PvZ fan. And i have to say out of all the platform i've played it on, i think i like this one the best. Seems to look a bit sharper and i like the controls. Easter Egg: Go to the Achievements and keep scrolling down... down down down!!!
  • Where is Twin Blades, the Zombie game that was removed from the Marketplace?Any news? It was a great game really.
  • Coming back when once the Mango update arrives. They are going to implement parental controls then.
  • This was a great game, Good pick up for those who havent played it.
  • Any differences between this and the Android version? Any special modes in this version such as survival mode?
  • Level 5-7 is bugged. You will not receive the token to proceed to the next level unless you DO NOT use the umbrella leaf.
