undead vs plantsNew Zombie Arcade Shooter For Android Devices
Peaksel Doo have released a new puzzle/shooting game entitled Undead vs Plants (not to be confused with Plants vs. Zombies), which is now available on the Google play store and free to download to any Android phone or tablet. With 150 levels to play, this new arcade style shooting game will take you on a fun and dangerous adventure of ricochet kills through a variety of different worlds ranging from blurry caves to sunny beaches and even the deep wild jungle. This game requires players to be well equipped before setting off and challenges players using logic and physics.

Aleksandra Ivic, a project manager of Peaksel Doo said of the game, “Zombie games are still a big hit, but a new challenge is always appreciated. We thought a bit of logic and physics wouldn’t hurt. This game is not so interactive but it gets you thinking about different ways of placing the bullets in the game to get rid of all the plants. We hope the players will enjoy this brain trainer along with new graphics and characters”.
