There’s a Zombie on Your Lawn! Plants vs. Zombies Available Through Amazon Appstore

Brains… Flowers… Brains… Flowers… That’s one weird combo thrown into one even weirder game, Plants vs. Zombies. This popular tower defense game by developer PopCap Games has eluded Android for the past 2 years but is finally available thanks to the Amazon Appstore. Its release follows that of Rovio’s Angry Birds Rio in the fact that it is both temporarily exclusive to the Amazon Appstore and available for free (today only). This is great news not only for Android users but also for the Amazon Appstore’s foot traffic.

While finally having this hugely popular game ported to Android may sound like great news, it does not come without some drawbacks.

Apparently there is a long list of unsupported devices:

  • Motorola DROID
  • Devour
  • Flipside
  • Samsung Transform
  • Samsung Intercept
  • HTC Aria
  • HTC MyTouch 3G
  • Sony Ericsson X8
  • Sanyo Zio
  • Kyocera Echo
  • LG Ally

That list, not to mention the fact that it also states “Plants vs. Zombies is not tablet optimized,” is going to make a significant amount of Android users a tad upset. To clarify, it will work on tablets but “some pixelation may be visible.” The download is WiFi only and weighs in at a whopping 75MB!  The 2 year wait for a port, huge download, lack of device support and more has me shaking my head at this one, but for all you others out there, ‘ENJOY!”

Note: I did manage to download it onto an original Motorola Droid but it crashed after the splash screen everytime.

Here’s a catchy video trailer I came across courtesy of Android Police
