Great game, I have it on my Mac, iPad and iPhone.

Just wish there was levels to Adventure and harder ones too. Also more achievements would be cool too!

Purchased for my 5y - I ended up playing it more than he does - I usually don't spend this much for a game, but probably worth the $10

Not a bad game according to my daughter, but 6 requests for tech support only got me 6 automated responses and NO help ay all.

Give this developer a pass. They could care less about post sales support.

A week ago, I thought an update had been posted, so I downloaded it and installed it. Zing, no more Plants vs Zombies. My reg code would no longer work either.

Six attempts to contact the developer got me not one single reply (other than automated ones).

My 15 year old likes this game a lot. However the developer is too lazy to provide needed support so I will never purchase anything from this lazy bunch of carrots again.

Save your money and buy from someone who actually provides tech support.

This game ist just great and completely worth the money. I bought it last year and still playing it sometimes.

The mini games (with slot machine and zombie bowling, fish tank zombies and many other great ideas) and the adventure levels are a great combination for all occasions (5 minutes up to 3 or 4 hours gameplay).

The soundtrack is - well how can I say that - remarkable. After the last adventure I often find myself whistle the melody. ( : )

Only a few games ever could surprise my that way. Top 5 star rating for PopCap.

Do NOT CLICK THE DOWNLOAD LINK ABOVE. It is NOT Plants vs. Zombies. It is an BIG FISH GAMES DOWNLOADER. Yuck.

Best to go to the official website and download from there.

I sent PopCap games an email asking for an explanation. I had to reinstall the version from PopCap as the one from BigFish does not recognize that I've registered the game.
As Robk mentions, your get the BF downloader which will then download the game. This is similar to Adobe's download manager crap.

The graphics are neat, that's true. But somehow the gameplay gets rather a hassle than kind of strategic. But what disappoints me most is a process called "MacProtectMonitor" that stays alive after the game has quit. I could not find any explanation what this one does, not in the readme, not on their website & it has to be force quit. Spyware or not, that is bad style!

Great game! Finished it, and definitely worth the 20 dollars if you like this kind of games!

Survival mode is great, the ability in the game to help the zombies against the plants is fun too. Very addictive game! Can't wait to see an sequel to this.

Very addicting without taxing your brain. Actual recreational recreation with some very funny bits and a skewed sense of humor.

Exceptional with it's variety of twiddydinkies to buy and numerous mini-games and puzzles.

I've tried to contact the seller three times, once to tuncer@macgamestore.com (7th November) and twice to orders@macgamestore.com (31st October and 4th November). The purchase email said to direct questions to orders@macgamestore.com.

I said that I had bought Plants Vs Zombies last year and wanted to play it again. However I'm getting two error dialogue boxes:-
FATAL ERROR - Failed to load image: images/SeedChooser_BackGround
Followed by: FATAL ERROR - Font resource not found: FONT_BRIANNETOD12
It makes no difference whether I download it from either of the two given download links.

The orders staff at macgamestore have totally ignored my emails. If that's their normal level of customer service then I won't be buying anything from them ever again.

Please note that the developers, Popcap Games, are blameless.

When in full screen mode, it's possible to hide "Plants vs. Zombies" and see the desktop, but unfortunately the game crashes when you try to show it again by clicking in the dock or using the OS X application switcher (i.e. command-tab).

Why might someone want to do that, you ask?

I usually have "Snapz Pro" running and can't make an instant screenshot. I was trying to hide PvZ so i could Quit Snapz, then return and use the Snow Leopard screenshot function. I've forgotten to quit Snapz first on more than one occasion and PVZ crashed each time.

  • Earn 49 powerful perennials and collect coins to buy a pet snail, power-ups and more!
