My Favorite Popcap Games Ever
If it's the first that you hear about the name Popcap, and you love playing games, now it is time to learn real good games. For a
I played Video games for over 20 years, besides the big-size games like the most popular RPG & FPS & RTS games, I'd also like to play some smaller-size
games. Popcap is one of my favorite small game producers of the world. Now allow me to introduce you the best games presented by Popcap Games.
#1 Plants VS Zombies
From the image you probably would think it's just a kid's game. Wrong! For what I know, Popcap never produces dumb games. It's supposed to be better. The
thing is, it definitely is! I can't believe how interesting it is, though it looks like a kid's game. To me, an advanced gamer with 20 years' game playing
experience, it's a real RTS(Real Time Strategy Game) like Starcraft or Warcraft.Why?
1st, it has credit system, in which the credits are generated solely by sunflowers. With the credits, you can buy weapons known as various plants in the
game against the enemies, zombies, stop them from intruding your house. The battlefield is your garden. The various weapons you can choose from for each
battle are limited to certain items. You have to use the limited items of weapons to efficiently struggle against the zombies.
2nd, it is in real time. Like most other RTS games, you need to build up strong basis of economy to support your army. Once the fierce battle is on, there
will be no time for you to care about the economy. Every victory is on a strong financial basis which is a truth among all the RTS games. There're many
strategies you can use. My strategy is to build as many sunflowers as I can in the early time, using squash plant against the early zombies until the steady
income has been set up, basically, about 10 sunflowers planted. Then buy heavy weapons only to strike back owing to your strong economy. It's always fierce
and it's always my victory. Really goog game! I can say it's the best game for Popcap ever. I recommended it to you.
It looks like a girls' game. It probaly is. The problem is, I have never seen any girl can clear the game. It's really a tough game. Still, you can choose
from many tools/weapons to fight against the aliens. You have to buy fish babies, buy food to feed them. The grown-up fish will generate coins which turn
into credits for you to maintain the whole system. The system is not too complex. Every stage, you can only choose limited items of weapons to fight. For
some fierce battles, you would probably feel painful as if the fingers clicking the mouse button become dead. You should imagine how fierce it is. I'm not
gonna say too much about it, play it yourself.
#3 Feeding Frenzy 2
It's the second edition of Feeding Frenzy which seems much better in graphic. Since we have 2, forget about the 1st edition. Of course, this is definitely
a girls' game. But who can stop me a guy playing this? In this game, you are manipulating a small fish moving along the mouse, to eat smaller fish in order
to grow bigger. Bigger fish eat smaller fish.That's the basic rule here.You'll experience a fantastic time here I promise!
A really exciting game to clear the bricks driving a spaceship. Magnificent Visual & Audio Effect. When I feel extremely tired, first time that comes out
of my mind is to play Astropop. That's really relaxing. By the way, the high score I got is 5 Million, what about you?
#5 Heavy Weapon
A game for man. I love it. Rank it #5 doen't mean what it appears. Actually many of the good games are of different types. You can't just rank them. It's
a tough game especial in the late stages. You are manipulating a tank equiped with many kinds of heavy weapons, which of course, cost you credits earned in
the game. The better, the more expensive. Magnificent visual & audio effect. It even makes you desperate when you can't handle the fierce battle. It's OK!
Let's play again!
#6 Mummy Maze
It's a small game while it's not easy. A game requires wisdom. You are an explorer trapped in a pyramid against one or couple of mummies. There are
certain obstcles to take advantage of. While, the mummies are almost as intelligent as you. You must have a second thought before taking action which is like
playing chess. I was once mad about this game. I even thought that was a mission impossible of some stages but finally I figured all them out. That feels so
A game for both genders that requires wisdom. You are asked to connect the two heads with a course by rotating the tubes. The more tubes you connect
validly, the more coins you will earn to build the Ancient Greek Wonders. A really nice casual game.
A girls' game. But I doubt if any girl can clear all the stages. Honestly, I tried very hard to accomplish the whole game. Not very easy. In this game,
you are saving the drowning city of Venice. Fill the gap with the stone that match the gap. That's it. However, there's a time that your stone cannot reach
the the gap directly. Then you'll have to use the border of the screen to bounce the stone which needs you to focus the angle you throw the stone. It should
be a work of accuracy. Enjoy playing it.
