Plants vs. Zombies 2 Now Available for Android, But It’s the Chinese Version

Plants Vs Zombies

We have been awaiting the release of Plants vs. Zombies 2 for what feels like forever. Finally, it has arrived on Android, sort of. The only downer is that Popcap can’t seem to get anything right on the Android side of things, and still has yet to publish this game to Google Play. According to their blog, no matter where you live, the game will be available this fall. 

If you want to play the game now, you will need to settle for the Chinese version which comes to us from the Baidu app store. It seems legit, but as always, you should be cautious when using apps that are not from Google Play. When you sideload this game, it will preview all of the permissions that this game requests. It will ask for full network access, Google Play billing service, read phone status and identity, and also the permission to send SMS messages. These could be pretty normal permissions for a game that would feature in-app billing and things of that nature, but as always, be cautious.

I played it for a few minutes and besides not being able to read anything, it was everything I had imagined. Go give it a whirl if you are up for it.

    The Android version sucks compared to the iOS. Was looking forward to it, though but there is huge differences between the two. For example the gem/coin thing. Now you’re forced to buy ingame if u don’t just want to play most of the levels with only 6 different plants or wait like month earning gems by playing or getting jigsaw puzzle pieces (not in the iOS) by beating the yeti zombie. Huge disappaointment. In the iOS version the plants appear the more u advance through the maps. The graphics are also better in the iOS version, too blurrish on my Samsung 10.1 where the PvZ looks nice. Setback in all respects, I go for the cracked version, EA will not get a single dime from me. 😀

    Decompiled the APK, took a quick peek and found a class called “com.popcap.SexyApp”. LOL?

    is it my imagination or did they separate money and jems in this android version and to buy stuff ingame, like fertilizer, requires jems not money.

    I just downloaded it and it has permissions for “send SMS messages” “read call Log” “read your contacts”…. I don’t know if I should trust it…

      Download an app called “Permission Master”. It allows you to modify permissions of an app. It will then create a new .apk with those modified permissions for you to install.

    I’ve been looking forward to this, but to be honest nothing will rival the experience on the ps Vita

    I’ve been playing it on my iPad for a while. It got old a little fast. Dots is where its at!

    One of those titles that you click on before reading the whole thing. Got me all excited over nothing…

    I wouldn’t be surprised if Apple gave them a little $ and a handshake to have an iOS exclusive for a few months

    • jdhas

      I don’t think that was a “handshake”.

    Btw Tim, I downloaded Candy Crush Saga yesterday after the DL Show and it is awesome.

      I played that game just to humor my girlfriend, and I just don’t get it. I don’t see the difference between it and the hundreds of other jewel-type, match 3 games.

      • That game was huge for awhile, then disappeared. Now it’s back with a vengeance.
