Hello fellow Androidians,

Yesterday we had a cute little green monster, today, we’ll discuss something entirely different… zombies! And… Pumpkins…!! Not sure what should scare you the most, but hey, keep on reading…if you dare!!

We’ll break it down into three parts :

1) Gameplay and story.

2) How much does it cost?

3) Conclusion?

Part 1 : Gameplay and story?

Allright, so we all know Plants vs Zombies, right? Evil Zombies trying to invade your garden, you fend them off with plants, yada yada yada. Awesome game! Well, many PvZ clones have appeared over time, and this is one of them. Most of the clones actually, well, suck nuts. This one doesn’t… as much.

The system is the same, use the materials (in this case, 2 kinds of pumpkins, orange & green) to dispose of the invading zombies asap. Sounds easy, right? It is. Really. Not too much of a challenge here.

Anyone noticed how i said zombies instead of monsters? Well, it’s basically a mix of both worlds. They appear like Frankenstein-ish monsters, but they act like zombies. So call it whatever you like (and let me know your term for it in the comment section below!)

It’s not just all about those evil, lighting up, deadly, mutated (dare I say zombified?) pumpkins though. There are certain tools to aid you in case you’d get overrun. For example, you can purchase additional dynamite to just blow up some of them creeps! Although a 3-Zombie combo with a line of pumpkins is still far more enjoyable to watch . Reminds me of a strike in bowling….

As stated, the game itself isn’t too hard but in the early levels you already may find yourself being overrun. I’d personally advise to save your earned ‘currency” and upgrade the “firepower” of your pumpkins first, so they can deal more damage to incoming foes. But that’s just my two cents, do as you like of course!!

In this game, you’ll find 90 playable levels, or you also have the “free play” mode, which runs as long as you can squash those zombiefaces with your mighty impressive pumpkins (or dynamite, or whatever). Endless hours of fun guaranteed!

Haven’t played it much lately myself (too busy blogging for my crowd – thanks guys & gals!) , but it’s fun to play it every now & then.

To illustrate, view the screenshots below :

Part 2 : What does it cost?

This game is absolutely free of charge and can be downloaded through the Android Market. Download from Android Market

Part 3 : Conclusion ?

Is it fun to play and even replay the levels?

Yes it is. Flicking around pumpkins to kill zombies. It doesn’t really need more added to it. Oh wait, except for the occasional BANG from the dynamite perhaps….

Is it better than Plants vs Zombies? 

Unfortunately i have never had a chance to play Plants vs Zombies on my smartphone (yet), so I can’t really compare. But it’s basically the same idea, just slightly different, so I’m pretty sure fans of Plants vs Zombies will like Pumpkins vs Monsters aswell.

Personal rating : 7.5/10
