Use your plants to defeat zombies and don’t let them eat your brain
Popcap, developers of famous games such as Zuma or Bejeweled, have at last released the sequel of the famous game Plants vs. Zombies. Plants vs. Zombies 2: It's About Time is here with more plants, more zombies and of course, more fun. You will again meet your neighbor Crazy Dave. This time, he eats a delicious taco. He likes it so much that want to eat exactly the same taco again, and for this, he uses his time-traveller RV Penny to travel back to the past. Nevertheless, Penny, somehow, takes us to Ancient Egypt, and here our adventure starts.
Plants vs Zombies 2: It's About Time is here with more plants, more zombies and of course, more fun
Crazy Dave is determined to eat his tasty taco again, so we have to travel through time to be home again, and get the taco. However, in our adventure we have to face new smart zombies since zombies are not a nowadays thing—they existed in the Old West, in the Pirate era, etc. This way, hordes of zombies will harass you wherever you go, either at your house door, or the Egyptian pyramids.
This app has some novelties compared to its predecessor. Plants vs. Zombies 2 has new thematic maps, new zombies and, of course, new plants to defend yourself with. There are also new mechanics are present in the game. Your main objective is not survival and getting coins (well, maybe survival is your main objective, indeed), but getting golden keys and stars to be able to continue. In the previous edition, a level was unlocked once you completed the former. Now, you have to collect a certain number of stats and keys to unlock the following map, or some ways with a door at the beginning.
As mentioned above, the mechanics have changed, but the gameplay is quite similar to PvZ. You have to use plants to defeat zombies—simple as that. However, don't kid yourself; zombies are stronger and more annoying than ever. This time, plants are not enough. For this reason, Popcap have developed new ways of defeating zombies. Firstly, you will count on Plant Food, a nutrient with which to feed plants and to boost their powers. It all depends on the plant you choose, as not all react the same way. When playing, you will think "is that a zombie glowing green?" The answer is Yes, that is a zombie glowing green, and once you eliminate it, it will provide you with a Plant Food.
Some new ways of eliminating zombies are the Powers. They are god-like powers such as thunders and so on, which can defeat zombies with touch-device gestures. Their icons are on the screen and once you activate one, you have a limited amount of time to use it and eliminate as many zombies as you can. You have Power Pinch: you pinch zombies (revenge, zombies, revenge!) until their heads fall off. With Power Toss you can toss them away just with your finger as if they were paper balls; and with Power Zap you can electrocute them (with the support of Thor, I guess) until they burn.
Unlike PvZ, you don't have in-game minigames, but those funny episodes have been replaced by challenges you have to complete to get stars. Some missions such as "Don't let zombies eat any plant," or "Use only X suns" are requested on the levels. Also, you really will have to pursue the Yeti, with its precious Lunchbox. It appears randomly on the maps, and if you enter the level it is on, you will have the opportunity of defeating it, and so getting its Lunchbox. Its Lunchbox can contain coins, a gem, or if you are lucky, a golden key. As well as that, you can purchase online upgrades and plants that are otherwise not available.
