The aim of the game is to prevent the zombies from getting into your home and eating your brain! How will you do it? With a little help from carnivore plants and pea shooter plans. The game is pretty simple, there are 6 lines where zombies can move forward to your home, and you suppose to protect it with your plants. you must plan the in the right place at the right time. After ending each level you award a new plan. And of course from level to level the game is being much harder, and you have to use your mind more. Every plan have a specific duty, I recommend to plan a lot of sunflower cause the give you sun that mean money at this game.

It seems like there's a problem in adding pictures. "We do not have permission", but I think that's just at the moment ...

I would guess, that a brain tastes like a octopuss arm; boiled, dryed, without any sort of pepper or salt.

That means a brain would have a mild taste, in similar fashion to a capercailie. Since it is a brain after all, it would melt in your mouth upon contact with the saliva, and very little chewing required.

I'm gonna upload a picture of an orchid (as soon as I can). Meanwhile, here's the info about it :

Appearances can be deceiving. The three little orchids may look colorful and nice, but deep under those lovely petals are savage warriors, ready to defend their owner from any zombie.
They can shoot a perfumed spray that will make the zombies dizzy, making them stop for a couple of seconds. The orchids will be defenseless after their first shot, it takes them time to prepare another dose of perfume (let's say something to 10 seconds). They are most effective in short range attack; in long range the effect of the perfume loses off pretty fast.

The orchids could be used to cover a plant in front of them if a zombie gets too close or they could immobilize the first zombies that appear so that the other plants could kill it.

Extra Bonus: How would my brain taste like?

It would have to taste like cotton candy, a pink delicious sugar flavor that melts in your mouth. No zombies could resist that.

Here is about the Nymphaeaceae!

A ambient, calm and usualy a water plant, the Nymphaeaceae is nothing you want to mess with, ironicly. Yes, their leafes float soft and calm. But. When it is wartime, the leafe rise, abandoning the flowers crown, and attack while floating in mid-air. They continiuesly drop leace on the ground, that terminates all living creatures that comes in contact. However, as how threatening as they may sound, they are also weak; one unlucky hit will result in a crash into the nearest enemy. Even if it survives the war, the lack of energy from the crown makes it abandoned, without being able to return, makes it inevitabely rotten. Big risk, big reward.

The Bon Sight is called so because the tiny trees do not disturb the approaching zombie's view. These old Bon Sights are so small that zombies have to bend down to eat them, but at the same time their headgears fall down, so they become more vulnerable. After the zombies have eaten the whole leafage of the Bon Sight, the trunk will be still there for a while. The approaching zombies stumble over it, and they drop their headgears and tools. A Bon Sight trunk can bear three walking zombies. It is also effective against vehicles but can only bear one.

Bonus: The taste of our brain depends on our thoughts. The happy human's brain is sweet (especially when he thinks about chocolate), the sad one's is bitter. And there are special cases, e.g. the brain thinking about summer usually tastes like suncream. But zombies' favourite is the adrenalineful, cherryish brain of the screaming humans.
