PopCap Games has just released an HD iPad version of its massively popular and multi-award winning iPhone game Plants vs. Zombies, and it looks like it’s proving to be just as big a hit on the iPad as it was on the iPhone, with many customer reviews citing it as a must-have purchase and one of the best games on the iPad so far.
Since the game first appeared for the iPhone/iPod touch back in February of this year, it has sold more than 650,000 units, and justifiably so. If you love Tower Defense games with a botanical twist, this is the app for you!
The Plants vs. Zombies HD app for iPad includes all 50 levels of Adventure and QuickPlay modes, as well as Survival mode from the original Apple Macintosh and Windows PC game. Four new achievements and 18 new mini-games have been added to the iPad version, including the Buttered Popcorn mini-game which is completely exclusive to the iPad, in which you attack zombies by first “buttering” them up, then fire corn-cob cannons at them. The iPad’s Multi-Touch user interface enables players to select up to eleven zombies at a time as targets for buttering. And all of that beautiful buttering action can be seen in full 1040x768 resolution of course!
