Plants vs Zombies 2 is here: arrives on iOS
Plants vs Zombies 2 has finally arrived! After more than three years since the release of the original, the much awaited sequel has landed on the Apple App Store and it is completely free to download. The Android version should appear on Google Play shortly as well.

Plants vs Zombies 2 is the anticipated sequel to the original tower defense game that you can still download for a dollar. Published by PopCap, it lets you fill your garden with plants to protect your lawn from all sorts of zombies.

The sequel comes with three brand new plants: Bonk Choy, Bloomerang and Lighting Reed, and the zomby armies have gotten reinforcements as well including Ra Zombie in Ancient Egypt, Swashbuckler Zombie on the Pirate Seas, or Chicken Wrangler Zombie in the Wild West. As you see there are different worlds to play with zombies that obviously have eaten enough brains to get clever.

If things get out of hand you can use power-ups (and of course you can buy some with real money) to supercharge plants, pinch, flick and electrocute zombies.

The game is a lot of fun and you can get it right at the link below. We are already playing it and our review is coming up soon - stay tuned.

If you can't wait. Check out xda. A port might be available soon if devs are inspired to do it.

Question: why is it always iOS first?

Android has more market share, but iOS still accounts for more of developers revenue. So (most) developers work on their iOS apps first.

I agree with u thats the only reason why until this day android is unable to crush iOS like what they have done to WP and BB

You forgot that it is also much cheaper and easier to develop for iOS.

"much cheaper to develop for iOS" ? I don't think so. Devs have to pay 1500$ for publishing their apps on App Store. On Play Store, its just 25$. But money is obviously not a concern for EA.

It takes much more time to optimize it for Android coz of the vastly different hardware profiles, the OS versions, screen resolutions, CPU/GPU etc.

It takes time to optimize it for Android coz most Android are slow and need latest version of Android plus octa core processor to become smooth. PvZ2 can't be handled by Android OS.

WHAT!? you have to pay for plants that were already included in the original game...?

instead of making the game F2P, just charge 6-9 dollars for it and have the plants included, It's a bad joke that I have to spend $3.99 on a snow pea shooter plant!!.

I hate how a greedy company can throw down to the pit such an amazing mobile game, EA you just blew it...
