Plants vs. Zombies

What is Plants vs. Zombies?

Plants vs. Zombies is a tower defense action video game developed and originally published by PopCap Games for Microsoft Windows. The game involves a homeowner using many varieties of plants to repel an army of zombies from "eating their brains". The game uses several different level types and layouts. The game starts out in a front yard, and progresses to nighttime levels, where the gameplay is more challenging, with no replenishing sun unless specific plants are used, the backyard is visited, with a pool added, and the final levels are nighttime pool levels (where fog fills the right half of the screen except when specific plants are used), a lightning storm level in pitch black (except when illuminated by occasional flashes of lightning), and rooftop levels (on the final level, the player must face a huge robot operated by a zombie known as Dr. Zomboss).
