Plants vs. Zombies for Android
Plants vs Zombies for Android, another iOS transplant, is probably my favorite mobile game ever. The premise? You guessed it; you must battle off waves of cute cartoon zombies using a variety of plants, in an effort to protect your home ... and, well, your brains. The game takes place in a number of environments, including your front yard, pool, and roof. But like Peggle, the game's vivid graphics and amusing audio -- incoming waves of zombies are heralded with a crusty "The Zombies Are Coming!" chant -- are really the best part of the app. Warning: Doing away with animated zombies is much more entertaining than it sounds, and you could lose the ability to be even mildly productive after downloading this app.
