You will have a lot of levels to play in Plants VS Zombies. You will have to face lots of different zombies, each with its own special ability, and zombie bosses who will be difficult to defeat. If you manage to finish the whole Adventure mode, you will be free to enjoy the mini-games that the developer has included within the game. If you play the PC version, you will have a Zen Garden where you can grow plants, feed them, take care of them and earn money to buy new items that will help you in your adventure.
Once you download Plants VS Zombies, you'll notice that the graphics of Plants VS Zombies are cartoon style, which lends a humorous aspect to the charming plants and the undead zombies. The sound effects are addictive; you will find yourself repeating zombie quotes even before they open their zombie mouths! The soundtrack follows the rhythm of the gameplay. When you finish the main campaign, you will enjoy an amazing performance by the plants that will make you love Plants VS Zombies.
Plants, zombies and gameplay
The Adventure mode of Plants VS Zombies is divided into different places outside your home, different hours of the day and varying weather. First, you will have to face a zombie horde in your front yard. This is just a plain yard where the zombies will try to enter your house. Then, you will have to stop them in your backyard. Here you have a swimming pool, but this is not an obstacle for your enemy - on the contrary, they will use the pool for sending zombies in rubber ring, underwater zombies or even dolphin zombies. However, you will have powerful plants to stop them, like the Cattails, which can shoot in any direction. Remember, before planting water plants, you have to plant a Lily Pad.

Finally, you will have to face zombies on your roof (how did they manage to get there?). The main drawback of this stage is that you must place a Flower Pot before you put down a plant. Of course, this supposes spending more sun and taking more time to complete the lane. All these stages can be played during day (the easiest ones), or by night, with special night plants such as the Puff-shroom and Sun-shroom. By night, you can play with different thicknesses of fog. The fog hampers your vision to see from which lane the zombies are comming, or which kind of zombie they are. You will have a Plantern to make the fog disappear, but it has a long recharging time and it also occupies the place that an attacking plant could take.
Regarding plants, the most important plants in Plants VS Zombies are the Sunflower; as they provide you with the necessary suns to get the rest of the plants. Suns also come from the sky, but they are not enough to create your plants’ army. Then, you will have fighting plants that will hurt zombies in different ways, for example, by shooting peas with the PeaShooter, or corn and butter with the Kernel-Pult.
Another class is the Stopping Plants. They will weaken and slow down zombies while attacking plants defeat them. The main one is the Wall-Nuts, which you place in a certain lane and the zombies eat it very slowly. Also, you will have the Tall-Nuts, larger but more expensive ones, or the Pumpkin, which you place on a plant for protection until it is eaten.
You will also have "Just-in-case" plants, mainly explosive ones that serve to quickly finish off an enemy, in case the rest of your plants fail. Usually, they are expensive and the time they take to recharge is long. The more zombies they are able to defeat, the more useful they are. For instance, you will have the Cherry Bomb, which explodes all zombies closeby, the Jalapeno explodes an entire lane or the Squash, which smashes the zombies in front of it. All of these disappear once they are used.
Finally, there are special plants which do not harm zombies but which can help you in your battle. The Grave Buster eats the graves which appear in your yard and from which zombies usually appear. The Magnet-shroom removes metal items from zombies, such as helmets. The Blover removes the fog temporarily and the Marigold gives you money from time to time.
Regarding zombies, we cannot divide zombies in types or difficulties, because each one has its own abilities and methods of resistance. We can say that you wouldn’t want some zombies to appear, like the Buckethead Zombie, which is very difficult to defeat since you have to remove his bucket by shooting. The Pole-Vaulters will jump over your plants, avoiding the first line of defense. Also, the Football Zombie, which wears an entire breastplate and, he runs! The Dancing Zombie carries an entourage of frenetic dancers which arrive overland or the Dolphin Rider jumps over your plants. However, the one which you don't really want to appear is Gargantuar, a gigantic zombie very difficult to defeat, which carries a huge post to destroy all plants on his way. Watch out, he launches his companion Imp to the first line of plants!
