(Pocket-lint) - PopCap has released Plants vs Zombies 2 for Android on Google Play. It is available globally and is the first game from the developer to feature full integration with Google Play Games Services.

Released on iPhone and iPad in August, the game is totally free to download and play with certain bonuses and power-ups available as in-app purchases.

It features a time travel theme and sets different levels in different eras, with different types of zombies to vanquish. There are even pirate zombies. Oh yes.

Initially, there are three worlds to explore with more than 60 levels at launch. More worlds and levels are coming soon.

There are also side-missions, mini-games and other challenges in every world that will tease your brain - as long as the zombies haven't munched on it first.
