Plants vs. Zombies 2: It's About Time is a 2013 free-to-play tower defence video game developed by PopCap Games and published by Electronic Arts. It is the sequel to Plants vs. Zombies, and was released worldwide on Apple App Store on August 15, 2013 and Google Play on October 23, 2013.

Development[edit]

In August 2012, PopCap announced that they were working on a sequel to their previous game, Plants vs. Zombies, and that it would include "new features, settings, and situations".[1] In a later announcement, the company confirmed that the new game would be released on July 18, 2013.[2] On June 26, 2013, PopCap announced on their Twitter page that the game would release later than previously announced. On July 9, the game was released in Australia and New Zealand on the iOS App Store[3] and came out worldwide on August 15, 2013.[4] The Android version was released worldwide on October 23, 2013.[5]

Gameplay[edit]

Plants vs. Zombies 2: It's About Time is a free-to-play game, unlike its predecessor, supporting in-app purchasing of coins in order to utilise certain power up abilities: Plant Food, a new power-up, allows plants to power up for varying amounts of time. Each plant has its own ability when given Plant Food. Players are able to complete the whole game without purchasing these abilities, some of which can be earned throughout the game instead of purchased. Players can optionally start with a tutorial on the basics of the game which takes place in the player's house. After the tutorial, or immediately if the player chose to skip it, the player time-travels first to Ancient Egypt and can use either purchase access to worlds or win in-game World Keys to unlock the Pirate Seas, Wild West, Far Future, the Dark Ages, and Big Wave Beach; this required stars in earlier updates. In addition, the Chinese version has an additional world called Kung-Fu World.[6] As players go through levels, they unlock new plants each with advantages and unique boosts. Big Wave Beach has big one-upper; Bikini Zombies (Rrrrr....)

Plot[edit]

The player receives a bottle of hot sauce which Crazy Dave, the players neighbor, adds to his taco. Crazy Dave is determined to eat exactly the same taco again, so he uses a sentient time machine in the form of an RV, called Penny, to travel back in time to have the taco again. Due to a malfunction, he arrives in Ancient Egypt. Worsening matters is the fact that the zombies, led by Dr. Zomboss, have returned, this time with the hope of creating an alternate timeline where zombies are the dominant species. The player must then defeat zombies there. Each chapter is 25 "days (nights for Dark Ages)" or levels long, with the exception of Dark Ages, which has only 20 levels and Big Wave Beach, with 32 levels, followed by Pirate Seas, Wild West, Far Future, and Dark Ages levels, Big Wave Beach which can be unlocked and completed in any order.With help from Super plants you must defeat the zombies!
