Hi and thank you for feedback! Can you please share your impression of the game? Did you like it?

I hope you had an opportunity to see for yourself that the game has a style and gameplay of it's own.

Default Game Impressions

The game plays a lot like a real-time Plants vs. Zombies. There isn't much strategy involved, though. Every once in a while, your vegetable has to reload, but I think that's as far as the tactical thinking goes. Plus, as you acquire new vegetables to use, you can just switch to them while your other one is reloading; rinse and repeat.

Aside from the obvious Plants vs. Zombies influence, the overall atmosphere feels very Angry Birds-esque. The opening cinematic is a scrolling photo of happy vegetables (rather ugly vegetables, if I'm being honest), and the photo scrolls to a bunch of zombies... and I swear I heard the grunts of the Angry Birds pigs in there.

A necessary element of a parody requires it to be funny. Thankfully, this game has somewhat of a sense of humor, but I fear I'm not the target demographic for said humor, as I mostly am not impressed.

The shop is a breath of fresh air. Instead of automatically being told that I should buy stuff with real money, it defaults to a menu that utilizes only in-game currency. Obviously if you click the third? tab down, you will be brought to the in-app store, where you will find a very common pricing structure, but the fact that they start you off in the in-game store is rather... kind.

So far, I see that you can buy upgrades for your vegetable soldiers. I'm not sure if you can buy anything else, but that is enough for me to consider it a good idea.

Hm... well overall, I appreciate the effort. I could see a lot of people getting a real kick out of this one. Unfortunately, I don't think I'm the target demographic, so I can't say I'm having the most fun with it

Good job on the game though

Hi MasterChief,

Thank you for sharing your opinion on the game! Every word, good or bad, matters to us, and we learn from every opinion. I'll still regain hope that you'll enjoy further gameplay, it gets more action with every level as new monsters and villains appear.

OK, so, who would be the target demographic? Just wondering.

Honestly said, in Angry Birds you do have the trajectory - but only after you shoot a bird. But I'd dare say that I am Vegend has far too many gameplay distinctions from both games you mentioned. Especially when it comes to the variety of mission types (i.e. "friend under fire" kind of mission) and actions you need to perform in the game (i.e. to interact with enemy units for a surprisingly efficient result).

I like this game but seems to be impossible to get enough coins to upgrade your plants to get passed the last 5 levels of the third area. It's easy enough to upgrade everything once, but there is no way I can see of getting coins, besides buying them to upgrade any further. There is an upgrade to increase the damage and lower reload time, but it costs 62,000 coins. Tried grinding the areas I already beat and only get 120 coins if beating each level perfectly. Not near enough to warrant grinding. Not using the IAP for coins on a $2 game, especially when it would cost $10 for the 62,000 coin upgrade I need. There should be a way of gaining more coins by replaying levels, instead of forcing you to buy coins at some insane prices. $10 for 62,000 coins you should be able to earn is BS...

Saying in short.

I got used to the controls very quickly. Therefore it wasn't and isn't difficult for me to play the game.

The coins I earn while playing the game, are enough for me to upgrade the plants to the 2nd rank.

Also there are enough coins for purchasing of freezing and air strike.

The difficulty increases gradually but due to a fast pace you don't notice this.

Sometimes there pop out the offers with purchase but they can be ignored and they don't occur often.

I hope I managed to answer your questions.

I'll come back to more intensive playing as early as this weekend
