After a two-month closed beta period, EA and PopCap have finally launched Plants vs. Zombies Adventures on Facebook, bringing all the social trappings of Facebook games with it.
The mechanics of the game are readily familiar to Plants vs. Zombies vets, but the linear defense patterns have been replaced with the isometric perspective that should be familiar to Farmville fans. There are the usual time-based tropes and virtual currency on deck as well. It’s decent fun, and its familiarity should bring in a substantial player base.
However, as EA is quick to point out in its press release, this is not Plants vs. Zombies 2, which is still on track for a Summer 2013 release.
