Plants vs. Zombies comes to Android via the Amazon App Store

This one has sure been a long wait for many of you! Plants vs. Zombies is one of the most popular games out there, and Android users are now able to enjoy this game at its fullest (Previously only available for iOS and PC). There have been some unofficial versions of this zombie-killing game before, but there is definitely nothing better than getting the final, polished product straight from the original developer.

Before you go rushing off to the Android Market, there are a few things you would like to know before you run and get this game. The first important fact is that Plants vs. Zombies is available exclusively through the Amazon App Store, something that will likely be repeated with other PopCap games. Upon finding this game, you will notice that it requires a WiFi connection in order to be downloaded. Plants vs. Zombies comes in at a whopping 75 MB, which will make many phones out there cry for space! The good news is that the app allows you to save it on the SD card, which will probably be what most of us will do.

After going through the long download process (which is a bit of a hassle compared to other apps), the full Plants vs. Zombies game will be at the palm of your hand. Who needs guns when you can end a zombie apocalypse with plants, right? This nifty game will give you 50 levels of tree-hugging war against 26 types of zombies. Also, you will have access to the usual Plants vs. Zombies features, like the 49 usual upgrades (different plants, lawnmowers, rakes, etc.), the almanac (displays all plants and zombies), and 10 “fun-dead” achievements.

Sadly, some people will be left out of the fun. This game is not available for every device, which is truly a shame for those that happen to lack compatibility with this game.

Plants vs. Zombies will not run on the following devices:

  • Motorola DROID (works fine on Motorola DROID 2 and some DROID X's), Devour, Flipside
  • Samsung Transform, Intercept
  • HTC Aria, MyTouch 3G
  • Sony Ericsson X8
  • Sanyo Zio
  • Kyocera Echo
  • LG Ally
  • This app is not tablet-optimized, but will run on most Android tablet devices (some pixelation may be visible during gameplay).

Of course, we are all happy to know that this game has finally arrived to our beloved Android devices, but as always we would like to hear your opinions. Let us know if you are enjoying this game, which can be had for free on the Amazon AppStore today only (normally $2.99)!

Do you guys think that 75 MB is too much? Are you one of the unlucky ones that can’t download the game due to device incompatibility? Hit us up with your comments, and also check out the Plants vs. Zombies music video, which will also be included in the game.
