Get ready to soil your plants as a mob of fun-loving zombies is about to invade your home. Use your arsenal of 49 zombie-zapping plants — peashooters, wall-nuts, cherry bombs and more — to mulchify 26 types of zombies before they break down your door.


Plants vs. Zombies™ was spawned from the fertile minds that created Bejeweled®, Peggle®, Zuma® and Bookworm®.

Game Features:

Conquer all 50 levels of Adventure mode — through day, night, fog, in a swimming pool, on the rooftop and more! Replay levels in the all-new Quick Play arena.

Battle zombie pole-vaulters, snorkelers, bucketheads and more. Each has its own special skills, so you'll need to think fast and plant faster to combat them all.

Try to survive all 9 unique levels as you battle zombies hiding in vases. It's smashing fun!

Be careful how you use your limited supply of greens and seeds. Zombies love brains so much they'll jump, run, dance, swim and even eat plants to get into your house.

Earn 49 powerful perennials and collect coins to buy a pet snail, power-ups and more.

Earn 44 awesome achievements and show off your zombie-zapping prowess.

Need coins for great new stuff? Buy up to 600,000 coins right from the Main Menu.

- Full Retina display support—zombies have never looked prettier.
- Compatible with iOS 4 multi-tasking.
- Loads of performance enhancements and bug fixes.

*Original Mac/PC downloadable game.

  • my favorite app

    by xnastasia

    ever since kawaii pet megu bit the dust, this game has become my favorite app. it's addicting, cute, family friendly, not straightforward yet not impossibly difficult (flappy bird, I'm looking at you). although I do have a complaint - since the app size is so large, I often have to delete and then reinstall it when I have more available space on my 8gb phone. and that's fine, except every time I reinstall, my level progress gets lost and I need to start all over again.

  • Flip Puzzle Game

    by Cbearizlle

    Try playing the game called "Flip Puzzle Game" now that is a real challenge but is achievable to beat!

  • Bug for me

    by Javsmacker

    It's great but when I tried to play it it did the popcap sign then auto exited me please fix!!! I'm not sure if it a glitch or not compatible with ipod five but just fix it

  • Popcap

    by Gamernater

    Popcap used to make great games like this one...

  • Best!

    by ImWrathchild

    Best mobile game....period. The sequel is horrible though

  • Like it

    by Dragon_queen83

    Love the game. But twice now I have had to purchase & re-download the game because the zombie keeps getting stuck!! Is there a patch or fix for this??

  • Good game, BUT...

    by Dan362817

    Micro transactions had to come in. I honestly don't know why it was thought to be a good idea. The "coins" in this game are used to buy several puzzle and mini game packs, and I think they should have just been sold in, say, 2 large packs, all mini games for 2.99 and 3.99 for all puzzles. The fact I can avoid paying for these by grinding drives me away from the coin packs. I also wish you had a "remove adds" for 1 dollar thing, I get the 1 dollar I paid was just for downloading, but if I can avoid adds I'd gladly pay a dollar. Aside from all of this, Plants vs. Zombies is one of the best tower defense games there are, and you should try it out, just avoid the coin packs. (P.S. My suggestions on what to buy with coin grinding: I, Zombie and Last stand puzzle packs. Gonna be hard to get much more than that.

  • It's great but...

    by Ruben2014

    I really love this game i have allot of fun with this... But I hate when there are advertisements in games that are paid. I would give this game 5 stars if you remove the ads.

  • Pop up ads? Seriously?!

    by cutesy

    If I pay for a game, then it should have no pop up ads! REMOVE THE POP UP ADS! Thanks!

  • Great game

    by Dancegurl24

    This game is super fun and cool. Should i say more? BUY THIS GAME ITS WORTH IT!

  • Perfect and addicting

    by Joeeeeee552000-13

    In my opinion this is the best game in the App Store!! It's extremely addicting!!! I highly recommend this app

  • Bug for me

    by Javsmacker

    It's great but when I tried to play it it did the popcap sign then auto exited me please fix!!!

  • Addicting game!


    Love it!!!!

  • Great game, why are there ads?

    by NGW10382

    To start, I want to know why this has any advertisements in it at all. At the start menu you are presented with a popup for another game. If I pay for something I don't want to have ads! In addition the game has moved onto being partly freemium. The game requires you to purchase extra game modes with in game coins. It was originally set that after the first story completion they would all unlock. EA turned PopCap into nothing more then a dollar sign. Beyond that, I love Plants vs Zombies! I have it on 3 other platforms and have beaten the game well over 30 times and still enjoy it! None of the other platforms have ads or require you to "buy" game modes.

  • Good Game

    by Plant vs. zombie lover

    Could be better, like it should have a house on Xbox360 PS3 and all those game systems, but still good app.

  • Why Adds?

    by Nhwetz

    Please remove your game adds. A perk of purchasing an app is to remove adds, I don't need your advertisement. Hint, Do this for PVZ2 also!

  • Love, love, love this game but it keeps crashing!!

    by Cheerfulpen

    Always worked for me in the past but isn't working now. Have the 5c.

  • Really good game

    by LBP2 Fan!

    A really good game worth playing, so is PvZ2.

  • Pool levels

    by AAcutie

    Pool levels are to hard I like the levels that are in the dark

  • Awesome

    by Erika Sofranes

    This is super fun

  • Crashes

    by KJ's Momma

    Can't even play the game every time I try to pull it up it just crashes! Waste of money!

  • Pop up adds

    by F16G-Man

    I used to rate this game as a 5 star game. Now it's a generous 2 because I am getting pop up adds every time I start!!! I paid money for this game there should be ZERO adds!!!

  • Bug needs to fixed!

    by Artisticjess

    Keeps crashing when I tap to start adventure. But all the other mini games work.

  • Favorite app

    by Maleah_33

    This app is perfect for road trips, im addicted to this game. Its definetly worth 0.99 !!!! Love this

  • Awesome

    by My5678910


  • Better than PVZ 2

    by Shghthdhhj

    Great game, The only thing I would ask for is to add endless for iPhone/iPod touch. If you did that this game would be so much more amazing for me!

  • Plants vs Zombies

    by 1765286

    Love this game

  • I love, love, love this game!!

    by Rebkrishad

    What a fun game!! It is my game of choice!

  • Don't give this 5 stars!!!

    by Some body person

    Everyone please stop rating this game with five stars!! If you keep doing that we will never get another update!!!

  • Love this game so much :)

    by Osito360

    This game is so awesome but please add a new update that you could play co-op online and vs mode mode on the next update please and this game well be perfect please :)

  • "The addiction"

    by dylman2003

    Super fun, a easy-to-pass-the-time kind of app, an awesome plot, super addictive! Rated 5 stars for all the great stuff you guys have worked on. Keep going, this is great!

  • It deleted everything.

    by fan97

    I went on, and had -16,000,000 coins. Whenever I got coins they didn't count because it got stuck or something, so I updated the game. and it completely deleted all of my data. So now I have to start all over again.


    by Ltdement

    I'm game just use your brain!!!!!

  • Addictive and fun!

    by monogatari

    Beware that you might not be able to stop

  • Love it!

    by Nickinella8344

    Super fun and addicting!!! It never gets boring or old

  • Plants Vs. Zombies becoming an advertising billboard for EA?

    by stamina3

    The game is and has always been great. But EA turned into a billboard for their apps. If you pay for a game, there should not be ANY advertisements whatsoever, except for the "other games" tab. Pop up ads are not acceptable for a classic paid for game.

  • Add mutiplayer

    by Man1912

    Will give a higher rating if you add this- Co-op: play together online Vs: battle online (someone be the plants, someone be the zombies.) (you can use Zombonie zombies with a 1$ purchase)

  • Amazing

    by Therealfadel

    Great strategy game with a bunch to do. I got PvZ2 first then bought this and I like this more. Great game and a must have

  • Love, love, love this game but it keeps crashing!!

    by Cheerfulpen

    Always worked for me in the past but isn't working now. Have the 5c and iOS 7

  • Plants vs zombies

    by Speeder10

  • What to add

    by Pabs.c

    You should add to crazy Dave's shop the ability to buy a tenth spot for plants

  • Bad glitch

    by Herobrine's bro

    I was just playing the level where you first get the torchwood and a dolphin zombie broke my sun flower and whent to eat my brains but he's stuck on the rubber ducky and won't let me exit or pause :(

  • Good

    by GSandra12

    This app is kind of cool but want are they going to do a new vergion of it and cooler people hoe have this app is cool so zombies vs planted rock.

  • Crashes on launch on iOS 7

    by Lukecro

    I haven't been able to open up Plants vs. Zombies 1 since installing iOS 7. Crashes instantly at launch every time. Uninstalling and reinstalling and rebooting don't help. PvZ2 has the same problem when the option to share data back with the developer is turned on -- and it can take dozens of reboots to get the app up and running long enough to get that option turned off in settings; but then it works. But with PvZ1 no such workaround exists. Seems like they've abandoned PvZ1 now that the sequel is out.

  • Love the game but it takes too long for updates.

    by WagDrop

    I love the game but the developers need to get new levels out faster.

  • Zombie Buster!

    by NYToo

    After trying the latest update the app won't open... Thanks in advance for addressing the issue.

  • Plants vs zombie

    by Idkjë

    I love it

  • Good app

    by iPod bhu

    PvZ is the best

  • Very awesome!

    by Jenietal

    Nice! I love everything about it. Very addicting. I dream about it. Don't tell anyone.

  • Great Game

    by I hate this game!!!!!!

    one of the first games i got was Plants VS zombies it is great get this game and you will never want to live the app

  • Want to play it, can't

    by Hooskins

    For some reason the app crashes on opening now. It started happening when they put ads at the start of the game. The only reason I've kept 3 stars is from fond memories of playing this in the past!

  • Can't open the app!

    by Kdef33

    I love this game but since the last update I haven't been able to open the app! It shows the loading screen but as soon as I tap to get into the menu, crash. iPhone 5, iOS 6.0, please fix!!

  • Awesome!!

    by Boats n ho3z277

  • Awesome

    by Abbyssssd

  • Boing then not

    by Average avenger

    I really hate the game at the beginning then when I get to like the roof it's I'm only doing this to see if I get any thing for rating 5 stars

  • Dont like this version

    by sukicarly

    This version seems to have one purpose, to force you to spend lots of money to advance through levels. Dont like it at all.

  • Ads on the paid version?

    by Wspmn79

    I love this game but think its pretty crappy that I have to see ads on the paid version. Even one is too much. I paid.

  • Love,love,love it

    by The Real Deal Batman

    BEST GAME EVER!!!!!!!!

  • IPhone 5..

    by ckr913

    I have the 5 and for some reason it always cuts out/fails! Needs an update plz. :)

  • Phantasmagorical (Fantastic)!!

    by Swanson97

    I'm serious, this is like my favorite game on iPod. Try Pvz 2, and if you like it, BUY THIS. But... If you don't like it... STILL BUY THIS! It's the best!

  • Stupid game

    by Lolsayer

    I finished the game and now when I updated I had to restart pvz2 is better

  • Great game.

    by Racing lover

    I hope you can update the Survival Mode in the iPod Touch version. Even though it is the iPad version, I still recommend Survival Mode for the iPod Touch version. If you can update Survival Mode in Plants vs. Zombies for the iPod Touch, that would be great! :)

  • Far better than PVZ 2

    by Skrapmot

    Waaaayyyy better than that in-app-purchases crap that ruined the 2nd game.

  • Awesome game

    by Deeyanoo

    Fun to play, 5*!!
