Popcap Games, creator of titles such as Zuma, Peggle, and Bejeweled, has released a new treasure: Plants Vs. Zombies. Available for both Mac and PC (Console and mobile versions coming soon), this game is the first I’ve seen that brings together both our green-colored world-sharers, and those dastardly flesh-eating corpses we call zombies, in one setting. Earlier attempts at such a thing: Basil Vs. Zombies, and Gardenia Evil 3, failed miserably.

Plants Vs. Zombies excels in many areas. First, it keeps cartoony flair that not only appeals to the younger crowd, but allows for solo play even late at night, without fear of pissing your pants. The way the zombies are rendered, you know they will not harm you – but it’s still intense when your field of plants is in danger.

Secondly, being a casual game, Plants Vs. Zombies is a title that is easy to pickup-and-go, meaning that even if you only have 15 minutes to spare or are busy watching Star Trek, you can still enjoy smaller tidbits of fun. Plus, each level only lasts about 10 minutes, so it can work around any schedule.

Lastly, considering that the world we currently live in is becoming more of a multi-platform society, Pop Cap’s decision to develop for the Mac was a wise one. Case in point: If Pop Cap didn’t make Plants Vs. Zombies for the Mac, I wouldn’t have purchased it. (That is, until the Xbox 360 or iPhone version were made available).

All of that said, if you enjoy zombie culture OR herbology:

GET THIS GAME! ($19.99)
