I’ve died and gone straight to heaven! The most awaited earthshaking event of the millennium has finally arrived: the release of the PC-only Capcom game Plants vs. Zombies as an application for the iPhone and the iPod Touch! I get goosebumps just writing about it. Of course I already purchased it on iTunes, the day after I found out.
When I got to the page on iTunes, I got a kick because most of the comments came from Filipinos raving about the release! When I finally bought it, I felt like I dug up an ancient treasure that everyone’s been looking for years. I literally SQUEALED with delight when I first opened the application. I kid you not, I almost had to fight back tears of joy. It’s not like I haven’t played the darn game, but seeing it on my iPod Touch was incredible. And once I started playing, I knew immediately that this game was made to be enjoyed on a touch device. Hands down, it’s a better experience than playing with it using a mouse. The size is perfect, touching the suns and positioning the plants are eons easier (and way cooler) with a light feathery touch of your finger. It’s the perfect marriage between game and gadget. If you enjoyed this game on your laptop or desktop, you’ll LOVE it on your iPhone and iPod Touch. It went straight to number 1 on iTunes once it was released. I haven’t put my Touch down since I started playing the game. I completely ignored the 20 or so applications I bought together with Plants, not until I get to hear the song we use as a bed every morning.
I am in love.
