Some Things To Keep In Mind

Parents need to know that Plants vs. Zombies 2 is a tower defense strategy game that does contain some violence, but it’s all done for comedic effect and in a campy manner. However, unlike the first game, this game has power-ups wherein a player does inflict violence by pinching the heads off zombies or electrocuting them with a finger. The silly premise of the first game (defend your house from a zombie attack using plants) is expanded as you travel back in time so your neighbor can enjoy a taco a second time, but you’re once again forced to fight cone- and bucket-wearing zombies in a puzzle format. This version has in-app purchases, with the top expenditure being $99.99, but patient players can play through without spending a penny. Players can share high scores via the Game Center social network, but participation is optional.

Plants vs. Zombies 2 is a Strategy Games app that is designed for those 11.  The app has an overall rating of 4 out of 5 and a learning rating of 2 out of 5.

Plants vs. Zombies 2 is available for Free On The Following Devices:

Our Thoughts on the Level of Engagement:

The game’s fun, silly premise and tight gameplay will keep players glued to the screen. But there’s a worry about having enough money.

The Support Level for Plants vs. Zombies 2 is about a 2 out of 5.

The game gently introduces players to new tools and doesn’t ramp up difficulty too quickly.
