Plants vs Zombies hits Android, free today

Plants vs Zombies hits Android, free today
PopCap’s Plants vs Zombies might be one of the most well known titles for iOS, but up until now Android folks couldn’t tap into the addictive gameplay exclusive to iOS land. The game has finally hit the Amazon Appstore and it will be available for free today and for $2.99 afterwards.

The Amazon Appstore is unfortunately only accessible from the States currently, so if you don’t feel like doing any complicated IP hackery, you might have to wait until the game hits the Android Market later on. To download Plants vs Zombies you’ll have to waste some 75MB of your precious bandwidth, so doing it on a Wi-Fi network might help.

For those of you who have missed the zombie craze we’ll just mention that you’ll be using your yet unconsumed by zombies brain cells to strategically align the flora of a garden so it withstands the attacks of various witty zombies. What follows below is the most zombifying trailer we’ve seen in a long while, so prepare to get stupefied and sing along after you watch it.

they completely botched this release. Says it wont install. Im assuming its downloading to the internal memory instead of to the SD card, and if that's a case, that's a total screwup you did Popcap, I wont be able to even install this unless I delete everything.

BTW I was able to get to install after clearing enough internal storage on my Optimus S. Game runs fine on the phone, only issue is that load times are fairly long, but it does allow you to put on SD Card after install and have it take a paltry 720k of internet instead of 74MB.

Part of the info that I've received is that this will not work on a couple of older devices, Orig Droid among them. Also, 76 MB is alot for any Orig Droid to take in at once... that's just horrible. And there isn't a way to download straight to the SD Card...damn

The Amazon app store always seems to take forever on my phone. This download has been going on for 30 mb and is half way through! If I did it in my computer (same wifi) it would be done in a minute and a half
