For the past few months I’ve been bringing you a list each week of what I feel are some of the most promising games to keep an eye on in the App Store (assuming you don’t already have them). This special edition of “10 To Watch” is a list of games that you should be playing over the upcoming Halloween weekend. Of course, there are enough games on the list that you should probably start playing them now. The big difference between the normal “10 To Watch” lists and this one is that here I’ve played a good portion of the titles in this roundup. Without further ado, here are my selections for Halloween iPhone / iPod Touch games…
Plants Vs Zombies, arguably one of the most addictive and awesome games for the iDevice, is now on sale for the very first time since its release on the App Store. The iPhone version of PvZ, normally priced at $2.99, is now $0.99. Meanwhile, PvZ HD for the iPad has dropped 50% to $4.99 (down from $9.99). Anyone who’s ever played PopCap Games’ iconic and beloved tower defense game will likely agree that PvZ deserves to be considered among the must-have apps for the platform. In fact, it’s also one of the first 12 inductees into the App Hall of Fame.
If you belong to the few iPhone/iPad gamers who’ve yet to thoroughly enjoy Plants vs Zombies, now would be a great time to take advantage of this Halloween Sale (through Oct 31st).
Truth be told, the first thing I took care of when I purchased my own iPad was to get a copy of Plants vs. Zombies HD. I snuck out on lunch break from work and after buying my iPad, I made a beeline for the nearest Wifi spot and downloaded the game straightaway. By the time I got back to the office, I was proudly showing off my very first acquisition, and my colleagues were just as eager as I was to give this baby a test drive.
Feel free to discuss Plants vs Zombies HD in our forums.
