REVIEWS Loadout Review
What do you really expect of a shooter these days? Loadout probably already has it somewhere in gobs of gameplay, but you won’t hear me saying it’s worth your time.

Dokuro (PC) Review
Dokuro makes the jump from handheld to PC, but does it help or hinder this unusual platformer?

Knock-Off Plants Vs Zombies Spotted In China

Posted on Monday, March 28 @ 15:59:43 Eastern by

Wait a second. You've never played Plants Vs Zombies? Before I became a believer I thought PvZ and Peggle were just those weird casual games that managed to addict enough people to become buzz-worthy. Now that I've played both games I realize how right I was.

Except for the buzz-worthy part. Plants Vs Zombies is actually a really good game. It makes sense then that a Chinese company has decided to blatantly rip off Popcap's tower defense game without the developers approval.

Shunxiang Technology recently attended an amusement trade show in China with their Plants Vs Zombies cabinets in tow. When Arcade Heroes spotted the cab, got pictures and contacted Popcap, Garth Chouteau had this to say:

As suspected, the Plants Vs. Zombies arcade cabinet shown in the pictures is completely unauthorized by PopCap.

The biggest infringement here is the license. Apparently the cabinet has completely different gameplay:

This version is different than the home versions. It's a 4 player joystick game where each player controls a plant turret that they use to shoot the zombies as they walk back and forth, or at least that is what it appears to be.

I love me some Plants Vs Zombies. I'd probably drop a few quarters in one of those cabs. If the gameplay is as addicting as Popcap's PvZ, I'd probably drop a few dollars. And maybe a paycheck or two. OK, so I'd be leaving with nothing. I can quit anytime I want.
