Yes, I'm loving this game. Hopefully Popcap are already working on an iPhone port. Peggle's coming, Bejeweled is already out, fingers crossed.

me too. the iphone seems to be perfect for TDs because touch is easy and more precise than a mouse, and it doesn't require tons of graphics or computing power. Now if only Devs would release more original TDs (like this one) because set paths are much more common than the "free flow" of this. I am sure if peggle is even close to as successful as bejeweled, peggle nights will be out soon and this will be available minutes later.

I beg to differ.

Anyways, I have seen some gameplay of this game and it looks awesome. I love the music vid. If they have a demo I will try it out first. What makes it different from the rest of the TDs though? How does the game work?

I'm truly surprised to find that zombies and plants are mortal enemies. Well, learn something new every day, I guess.

AHahaha, I just bought this game like 2 minutes ago. Totally awesome in every way possible! So many different "plants" and zombies in this game! I really do hope that they port it over. $9.99 on Steam is well-priced and the graphics are within iPhone and iPod Touch capabilities so I can easily see myself buying this for iPod Touch even though I have it on my PC.

Well it isn't more precise, but it is faster to use when the touch areas are "finger friendly"
Also, this game is more like a cross between a castle defense and tower defense. It is free form, open, but you can't make a path because they can destroy towers too. It is really different and fun.
