Plants vs. Zombies has finally been updated with support for the taller, 4 inch screen that’s in the iPhone 5, 5S, and 5C. That’s great news, especially since the taller screen size has been around since the iPhone 5 came out a year ago!
Plants vs. Zombies is the wildly popular tower defense (ish) game that pits your roster of mutant plants against the advancing hordes of cartoon zombies. It originally came out for the iPhone way back in 2009. The cartoonish style, humor, and addicting gameplay have made it a modern classic, and it’s since been ported to just about every device, computer platform and console under the sun.
The sequel, Plants vs. Zombies 2: It’s About Time, recently launched using a free to play model. But the classic PvZ can be yours on iOS for only $0.99. Now it will even look good on your fancy new iPhone 5S too!
For more info on the game and the new updates, here’s the blurb from iTunes:
Get ready to soil your plants as a mob of fun-loving zombies is about to invade your home. Use your arsenal of 49 zombie-zapping plants — peashooters, wall-nuts, cherry bombs and more — to mulchify 26 types of zombies before they break down your door.
50 FUN-DEAD LEVELS
Conquer all 50 levels of Adventure mode — through day, night, fog, in a swimming pool, on the rooftop and more! Replay levels in the all-new Quick Play arena.
NOT YOUR GARDEN-VARIETY GHOULS
Battle zombie pole-vaulters, snorkelers, bucketheads and more. Each has its own special skills, so you’ll need to think fast and plant faster to combat them all.
Try to survive all 9 unique levels as you battle zombies hiding in vases. It’s smashing fun!
SMARTER THAN YOUR AVERAGE ZOMBIE
Be careful how you use your limited supply of greens and seeds. Zombies love brains so much they’ll jump, run, dance, swim and even eat plants to get into your house.
