Best 10 Popcap games I’ve played
I’ve spent numerous hours playing Popcap games and I’ve tried out some of the most popular games they’ve got and naturally I have my favorites.
Hit the jump to see the list
No 10 Alchemy:
Order the symbols by form or color until you all squares of the board are yellow. You can burn some of the symbols that you cannot use in the red “oven” on the left, but beware! There is only a limit number of symbols you can trow in the “oven” until it gets full, so play carefully in order to achieve a higher score.
No 9 Dynomite:
Destroy the incoming dinosaur eggs with same-colored eggs. There are three difficulty levels and you can choose from four different game modes — Endless Puzzle (Face an endless wall of dinosaur eggs), Stomped Puzzle (Crush the eggs before they crush you), Fossil Challenge (Free the fossil piece by crushing the eggs it is glued to) and Time Trial (Crush as much eggs as you can before the time runs out).
No 8 Bejeweled 2:
Match the gems by color and form, make a line of at least three gems. You can choose between four different game modes — Endless, Puzzle, Action and Classic.
No 7 Insaniquarium:
Take care of your fish, make them strong and big, protect them and gather the money and treasure they drop for you. With every achievement you get goodies and new helpers for your tank like the little crabs you see on the bottom in the picture.
No 6 Pixelus:
One of my all-time favorites from Popcap. Play as Pixelus and solve the puzzles by placing all of the tiles on the blank spots. Try making as few moves as possible.
No 5 Zuma:
Match the balls by color and clear all of them before they get to the “drain”. You can choose between two game modes — Adventure (complete all levels of the game) and Gauntlet (face the endless challenge).
A hidden object game that takes you on 25 different missions. Find the hidden treasures to move on to the next level and find the two skulls in every map to collect extra points. When you beat all challenges, you unlock the Unlimited Find & Seek game mode and the Match-3 game mode.
No 3 Bookworm:
Connect the letters to form words, write longer words for more points. You can choose between the Classic and Action game modes. In Action you have to clear all burning letters before they get to the bottom of the board.
No 2 Zuma’s Revenge:
This game is definitely better than the original. After you complete the first set of maps in the Adventure game mode, you earn the Iron Frog trophy and can start again at a higher difficulty to compete for the Heroic Frog trophy. In the Challenge game mode you have to earn a certain number of points within the given time.
No 1 Plants vs Zombies:
Although the game is mainly planting plants to beat the zombies which are attacking you house, there is a lot of strategic and tactical thinking behind it. First you fight the zombies in your back yard during the day, than during the night and after that you have to defend your roof. After you complete the Adventure mode, you unlock the mini and puzzle games. You also have the option to build your own gardens — a zen garden, a mushroom garden and a garden for water plants. After you’ve played 8 to 10 hours of Plants vs Zombies you become one dedicated gardener
If you haven’t tried it out, you definitely should! It is on my all-time favorites’ list
