At long last -- it's time for Plants vs. Zombies on Android. And it's instantly addicting. Turns you into a Plants vs. Zombies zombie, even.

Gamplay is simple. You've got a house. Zombies are attacking your house. And the only thing standing between you and the zombies are your plants. You start out with just a few basic resources. Your single-shot plants, the sun to provide some, well, sun for the plants, and sunflowers for extra sun. You collect suns to purchase more plants. The more plants you have, the more zombies you can kill.

And that's it. Plants vs. Zombies doesn't require quite as much strategy as some tower defense games, which is nice, but it can seem a bit too easy at times, at least in our initial time playing.

Plants vs. Zombies is available now in the Amazon Appstore (free today, $2.99 regularly).

Amazon only has a 2 week exclusive deal. So the odds of it going to the Android Market after that is pretty good.

Great game! love it on PC and now equally as much fun if not more with achievements on Android! Large download at 75 Mb and seems to run much better on phone memory than mounted on SD card. Graphics are awesome on Samsung Galaxy S i500.

Im happy this game is finally here but is anyone else having a problem with it being lagy on Samsung Droid Charge?

I have the thunderbolt and I have absolutely no problem. I have been playing all afternoon. I am actually impressed with its performance. I hate the way it plays on my iPod touch. PvZ rocks.

you cant download this to your device... I hate android more and more every day... good thing I tried this game on my ipod touch and it is worse than angry birds... so no loss to me

Can't wait for Peggle! Hopefully it won't be such a big file, as well.

Is PvZ also this big on the iPod/iPhone? Seems really odd for a game that is a similar style of game as Angry Birds (obviously different gameplay, but similar graphics, etc.)

Anyway, the game runs great on my Aria (CM7). But when the screen shuts off, after you unlock the phone the game sticks on the loading screen for a couple minutes.

Kinda sucks it was only for WiFi... had to go out of my way to connect and get some zombie love... I know I am a freak for only using a mobile connection but 4G is so saturated where I live I don't need anything else.

This game is really fun and it was ported very well as an android app. The graphics looks great on my Samsung Captivate and there's no lag. I was expecting the typical blurry iphone port but, fortunately, I was wrong.

I don't know why people are even complaining about it being 75MB. We're in 2011 now, and when everyone's talking about space in GB, what is 75MB really? It's just a drop in the bucket unless you have a 3 year old phone or something very low end.

Also, thanks Amazon. I installed the Amazon appstore today just for this app!
