The weekend is here and it’s time to play games. So what’s the hot new game to play at the office? I’ve heard a few guys raving about Plants vs. Zombies, a garden-fresh take on the “tower defense” genre, made by the team at Pop Cap (Peggle). If you’re interested in giving it a shot, try the demo here.
Have a great weekend.
