Get ready to soil your plants in an all-new action-strategy game from PopCap! A mob of fun-loving zombies is about to invade your home, and your only defense is an arsenal of 49 zombie-zapping plants. Use peashooters, wall-nuts, cherry bombs and more to slow down, confuse, weaken and mulchify 26 types of zombies before they can reach your front door. Each zombie has its own special skills, so you’ll need to think fast and plant faster to combat them all. But be careful how you use your limited supply of greens and seeds: as you battle the fun-dead, obstacles like a setting sun, creeping fog and a swimming pool add to the challenge. And with five game modes to dig into, the fun never dies!

This is a great game! Worth the $10.00. You will love this game.
Love it love it love it
HermanRamone on 7/8/2015
This is by far the best game ever made! I love the graphics, the game play, the sound effects… and it never gets boring! I have been playing PvZ for years on my smartphone and I am so happy that it is available at the Mac App Store, too!
Ok, But...

I have this game and the second version on my iPad and the quality so SOOOOO much better AND it cost’s less. This app is a hackjob, resolution is an issue plus the edge of the screens are cut off. You barely see the lawnmowers let alone the house. $9.99 is a rip off for this app. Id ask for a refund but apple doesnt do refunds. If you’re going to charge $10 for an app it should be the entire app, not a chop shop version.
Go Popcap
jonandcari on 4/10/2014
this game is crazy awesome. if you have already bought on another apple device, don't get it.
Good, but...
Aquatus1 on 3/31/2014
Okay, I get, the game is old and there are few if any updates ever going to be made on it. I love the game, really, it’s fun, it is somewhat addictive, there is little to not like about it…except for one thing that really bugs me. The replay value seriously goes down when you find out Crazy Dave will ALWAYS pick three plants for you. I can understand it on the second play through, just to make things more difficult, but there is no point to it after that. That really needs to go. And, as long as the programmers are in there, they could include the Garlic in with the Pumpkin, Wall-Nuts, and Tall-Nuts as items that can be replaced without being removed.
please make plants vs zombies 2
angrybird12 on 2/1/2014
i have it on my ipad and it would be a lot better if you could make it for mac :|
On macbook pro 13
Abigail Monge on 12/22/2013
Looks great! Nerds are always complimenting the graphics on this baby. Awesome game that is fun and addictive. Downloads in seconds. No waiting, ever.
Graphics are atrocious
MoneyBecomesKing on 7/11/2013
the graphics are horrid on my retina macbook pro. also the mouse pointer that shows up on this game is almost identical to a windows mouse (bigger than the mac mouse & white). i guess it is better than nothing. realy needs retina display support. they did not optimize this for desktops, just the same levels as every other device. i hope they do better with plants vs. zombies 2.
BamaGirl22 on 7/4/2013
I'm not into zombie games or anything zombie. I've been avoiding this game for quite sometime, and I decided to buy it today out of curiosity. All I can say is that I became addicted to it today. I love it, and I enjoy playing it. I'm going to start playing it again; I just earned the Suburban Almanac.
Good, but...
johnsfloor on 6/2/2013
I just wish that hovering over suns would pick them up. It's really annoying to have to click on every single one.
If you like strategy and zombies, than buy this!!
Wesn on 5/26/2013
This game is so awsome that i can play it all day its full of action, defence, and some comic mischief but its realy good, but i wish they could make the screen bigger.
Passionoflife on 5/5/2013
Be AWARE this game is addicting lol…Once you start you will not want to stop…LOVE IT LOVE IT LOVE IT!!!!!!!!!!!!
No update since July 2011!
Super.Kirby on 3/21/2013
Horrible, no update since 2011! I want Last Stand just like on my iPhone. Everything is catered to iPad and iPhone now days. They don't care about macbooks anymore! =(
Doesn't Work
3M1554RY on 3/8/2013
I have a Macbook Pro, bought it less than a year ago and am running snow leopard. The app loads and then the screen is a glitchy and doesn't work, Not Worth my money . . . Refund???

Zombiluv90 on 2/28/2013
i downloaded this game for my iphone loved it so much i bought it for my Mac, and i still love it except im getting really annoyed because the game says i have over 50,000 coins for the shop but when i go to buy anything it says i dont have enough. I have no clue why its doing this but i hope it fixes soon.. anyone else have this problem? (will change my rating when bug gets fixed)

mark9863 on 2/21/2013
i love this game but it keeps crashing when i get to the end of the load screen now.. please fix!!!
kiwifruit5001 on 1/3/2013
Awesome tower defense game!
Cophdog on 12/29/2012
The graphics are intoxicating to stare at, the programmers made wonderful detail. The later levels are more challenging, totally worth the money!
Great game!
nycalessandra on 12/10/2012
Great game, very creative -- there's nothing like it! However once you finish all the levels, there's not much to keep you coming back.
Gaaon on 12/10/2012
this game is good. The I-pod game is better. Don't buy it if you don't like the iPod plants VS zombies. MINECRAFT IS BETTER
Low Jennon on 12/10/2012
I have this game on all of my idevices and even my old pc. Its a great game and fun for hours. My only complaint is that it needs to be updated for the new retina display macbook pro. Thanks!!
I love this game!
AlexDiazTB on 10/25/2012
Please add new levels. Keep updating the mac version too not just the iPhone, iPod or iPad.
Game Center
NiNe-h0-SeVeN on 10/23/2012
Please put on Game Center!
great game
ebuychance on 9/23/2012
I enjoyed playing this very much thanks.
Three stars bc I already loved it
Heisenburg von Calrissian on 9/6/2012
Another review, September 2012: Seriously. Update the graphics. KTHX. Original Review, June 2012: Yes, I fell in love with this game on my iPad. Then I bought it for my MacBook. I'm stunned -- stunned! -- at the lack of graphics improvement made between the platforms. At the very least, the MacBook version should be full screen. I'd like it if were hd, or just not pixillated. This version is, quite literally, like using an iPad with a pointer onscreen. This is still a great game. If you haven't played it, you should, and soon. If you have an iPad, though, buy the iPad version. Until the developers improve the graphics, this version isn't worth buying. I think that this game may always be better with a touchscreen. Using the mouse here kills me. It really does.
Money well spent!!!
Vincent Guzman87 on 8/25/2012
Plain and simple, this is worth the 10 bucks. Buy it and enjoy!
Great but update it for Lion and modern macs!
Jables2 on 8/14/2012
I love this game. Bought if for my iPad, iPhone and Mac! Just wish they'd update it so that full screen actually fills the screen of all modern widescreen Macs. Would also love to see it adapt the full screen button of other Lion apps where I can just click the button in the right hand corner.
southparkbrahh on 7/9/2012
extremely addicting app and definitely worth the money, you will not regret buying this!!!
great game if it worked!!
kindred533 on 7/8/2012
I got this game and was instantly addicted to it. It's fun and is great way to pass the time. However while trying to purchase supplies from the crazy guy the game shut down and now it will not open any more. I would love a refund ASAP
Shobeir on 7/5/2012
this is very good game and i love this game this is very beautiful .
Update To Enhance To At Least 1080p!
Andrew Martinez on 7/4/2012
I Will Bump Up The 4 *'s To A 5, When The App Looks Consistent Throughout In Full Screen As It Does In Regular (Or Standard) Size. (PvZ Running On A MacBook Pro W/ Retina Display)
NingNing63 on 7/1/2012
This fun puzzle game will challenge your brain. compleate with 50 levels, 20 mini-games, 18 brain-bending puzzles, and 10 survival games. plus zen garden, an almanac, a shop and more. I still am trying to get the golden sunflower trophy but I can't get past the survivals. this game will last you so long. I hope they're making a sequel because I want more
Graphics… Really?
seanmday on 6/17/2012
This game looks awesome on the new iPad and has retina support. I will give this game 5 stars once they upgrade the graphics so that it looks crisp on a 15 inch (non-retina) mac book pro at full screen. It would also be a nice feature to be able to create an account that syncs across both Mac and iOS devices so I can pick up where I left off without have to replay the entire game from level 1. Other than the graphics, this game is worth having on every apple devie you own! =)
Sparkles136 on 6/17/2012
this game is great fun, but after playing it a while it freezes and I can't move anything. I have to quit and start again. Not good.
RaviArora1972 on 6/14/2012
This game is very good the only thing is if you can you make some in-app purchases that are cheap that would be very helpful. This game is great i would recommend this to anyone. Even thought I got this game for 3 bucks on sale I would have bought it for any price, $9.99 is the perfect price. Only thing is in-app purchases for coins. Thnkz for this game Pop Cap you gouys really rock SO BUY THIS GAME NO MATTER WHAT!!!!!! IT IS THE BEST GAME EVER!!!
Full Creen !!!
Riaan on 6/10/2012
Why on earth do you have a Mac app thats not full creen ???? Its stupid and has no prupose to have a Mac app of the game that shows the size of an iPhone !!! This game needs to be Full Screen to enjoy the experience of the Mac, especially on my 27inc iMac !!!! Hallo !! Many people have complained about this and you simply ignore us….not good !
Great Game but could be enhanced with graphic options.
JRagicus on 6/3/2012
I have played Plants vs. Zombies before and decided to get it for the computer. It is a great game! 5 out of 5! The only thing missing is some graphic options because I would love to be able to set the graphics higher than standard.
The game rocks but support is poor
dishmanm on 5/19/2012
For some time now, the game crashes on opening. I have contacted both Apple App Store and PopCap but each points to the other. Please help.
Fun for Everyone in the Family
Punnkinhd on 4/20/2012
As a family, we love this game! It's a blast. We have it on a nook, a playbook, a droid phone, and a mac computer. The others are jealous that I can make a Zombatar on my mac, and they can't. For the programmers, I did find a bug. In the Zombatar feature, some of the attributes don't show up on the avatar part. The clothing always stays the same, and some of the hair colors revert back to white.
Random perfection on 3/18/2012
was running awesome until update to lion now when i try to open the app its a blank white screen! fix!!!!!!!!
Idaho1956 on 3/12/2012
I got this game for my grandkids, who love to play it at their house. After I downloaded it my granddaughter was so excited to play it and it does not work. I have OS X Lion and it will not work. Very disappointing. I will give it 5 stars, because I know it is a fun game and the grandkids love it. Just wished it worked on my Mac with OS X Lion. Any fix for this?
This Version as well not on FULL SCREEN
**Sheroziy** on 3/12/2012
Zombies and plants are like peas in a pod
johnny on the spot on 3/11/2012
Well for some dumb reason I have bought this for iPad, iPhone and now Macbook Pro. It's simplistic fun at its best. I would have rather had the Steam version but they priced it better on the App Store. Now the important question. Where's FieldRunners to fight this one off?
Great game, but...
costrutemil on 3/11/2012
I love the game, played it a lot on my iDevices, but I would love it to be in HD, 1920x1080. Mac computers have a pretty good display resolution, it's a pitty this game does not take advantage of all the screen estate! Also, where are the minigames? Love the game, but I feel like it's not exactly worth $10. Still, 5 stars, but I'd love that HD update
Startlingsora on 3/8/2012
im a big fan of this game have it for my xbox ipad and ipod finally got it for my new mac and its not even full screen only fills up a square about the size of the ipad. hope this gets fixed cause that was a big let down and when its full screen the graphics arnt the greatest.
Best Game ever!
Marilit16 on 3/4/2012
This game is super addictive but the game finishes pretty soon. When it finishes you start all over again but you get new zombies. You get really hook to it! and you'll LOVE IT! so I recomend it! :) !!!
Great Game
AObgYT on 2/19/2012
All that I can say is that this IS a great game and very addicting.
Jeckmicop5000 on 1/25/2012
This runs great on my mac book air and is really fun! One of my favorites.
