It's official. Plants vs. Zombies has become one of the most popular computer games in the Philippines.
I walked around Greenhills earlier and almost all cellphone repair shop PC's there were running the video game. And why not? Plants vs. Zombies is fun, addicting, engaging, fresh.
For those who haven't played the game:
Plants vs. Zombies is a tower defense (TD) video game developed and published by PopCap Games for Mac OSX, Windows and iPhone OS.
How to play Plants vs. Zombies?
Using your gardening skills and with occasional help from Crazy Dave, you need to harvest sunlight to grow an strong army of plants to destroy the hordes of approaching abominable zombies. Start the round with a clear lawn and build up your defenses. I suggest you first plant sun-producing sunflowers, then build your army from the sunlight they produce.
As you progress through the game, you are given a larger armory including bombs and mines, among others. But while your capabilities improve, keep in mind that so do the zombies - they become stronger and more horrible. Keep planting to make sure that your army has enough power to destroy the zombies. Don't forget to strategize as each zombie has its unique strengths and weaknessess.
