Fight for your honor as your fate hangs in the balance in Plants vs Zombies 2.

Successor to Plants vs Zombies, Plants vs Zombies 2 offers an unusual rivalry between plants and the undead. As zombies swarm the forefront, plants serve as their kryptonite, crippling what’s left of their already weak, lifeless bodies. Unlike its predecessor, Plants vs Zombie 2 offers a time traveling feature in which players are blasted into an unknown era. Even still, players must use varying types of plants to kill off the creatures. As the plants are faced with impending doom, players must strategically ward off the zombies to protect their land.

Plants vs. Zombies 2 is the second game in the Plants vs. Zombies series, and the first game was incredibly popular within the tower defense genre.

The object of the game is fairly straightforward. The player has a selection of plants they can use to guard their home against an onslaught of zombies. The plants are basically the defensive towers in the game, and they all have different abilities that serve to protect against zombies.

One of the most detailed elements of the game is the fact that it takes the player throughout all of history and even into the future with their environments. The first level takes place in ancient Egypt, and later levels progress through time so the player finds themselves in the Wild West and even the Dark Ages. Each world is highly varied in terms of challenges and opportunities for protection, and that helps the game stand out from the first.

The player must advance through the levels and worlds in order, much like the popular Mario series from Nintendo. The game includes an in-game currency that can be used to unlock new levels in every world, but that process can be tedious since the player must grind enough currency to do that. Of course, the game allows for in-game purchases of that currency to help the player progress faster if they so choose.

In terms of gameplay, this sequel doesn't expand too much on the previous title. The player has access to plants that can be placed strategically to protect against zombies, and there are sunflowers in the game that give sunlight to the the other plants, which acts as the game's currency.

There are some new additions to the game that make it a bit more involved, like the ability to use plant food to temporarily strengthen particular plants. This plant food can be obtained by purchasing with coins or by killing the right zombies.

Power-ups are another new addition to the game that make it that much more fun. They cost the same coins that must be purchased with real-world currency, but those coins are also slowly awarded within the game without the need to purchase them. Power-ups include the ability to throw zombies off the screen, pinch them to death, or even electrocute them to prevent their advancement.

It doesn't take much time to figure out how this game works, and anyone who played the original will have no trouble at all. There is a tutorial that new players can use to learn the basics, but it is entirely skippable for those that have no interest. The game also includes in-game mini tutorials that help players learn how to deal with new game elements as they arise. For example, the game teaches how to use the touch controls for the power-ups when they become available.
