Best for ages 6 and up....My kid loves this game and prefers to play it when he is on road trips.
A massive horde of fun-loving zombies has just jumped the fence at the edge of your yard, slowly creeping toward your house. There's only one thing that stands in the way of these brain-eating monsters getting to your own pink, healthy brain — your garden. It seems like an unlikely army, but it's all you've got. Use your leafy arsenal to zap these zombies and defend your home in Plants vs. Zombies for Nintendo DS.
Defend your home in five original game modes with an arsenal of plants through day, night, fog, in the swimming pool and on the roof. Create your own zombie with the Zombatar or zap more of the undead creatures in new DS-exclusive mini games. When the zombies become just a little too dull and lifeless, add in some fresh meat by challenging a friend to two-player Versus mode. Do you have what it takes to defeat the zombies and defend your brain from consumption?
