Vampires Vs Zombies
Hilarious, Unusual and yes.. Totally Zany
I've never liked TMG's very much, having tried more than a few and found them all extremely boring., Until today. Vampires vs Zombies is the exception.
At last, a game that presents novelty although based on a classical concept.
Don't skip the Intro. It's zany, yes, and hilarious. So are the cutscenes and the graphics.
The characters are so well thought out ! Take a good look at the horse...too funny.
The game mechanics are such that in spite of the dexterity you will need in your clicking, the frenzy is well balanced and the actions you will have to perform well timed.
The objectives are not too difficult to achieve although the difficulty increases with each level. The timer is not as strict as in other games of like genre, but you'll still need to be snappy if you want the highest rewards.
Visit the Lab, go see the Secretary, buy buildings and upgrades, have a peek at the Awards Section, they're all funny and addictive.
The developers' high sense of humor is omnipresent and not without connection with Plants vs Zombies.
Difficult to say more without spoiling your fun. Try the demo, I am sure you'll be seduced.
Probably the only TMG I will ever buy, by the way.
Highly recommended !

After reading some of the reviews that said that the game was so slow, boring , not worthit etc I was dubious about playing this game. Played the demo and wow!! So familiar, very similar to Farm Frenzy but with a few different twists. I did not find it slow at all but it may be that I have just purchased it recently and it may be an updated version, or that a fairly up to date computer with sopeedy processors and lots of memory has no play problems.
I timed the horse travel as this was one of the complaints and compared it with various Farm frenzies.
FF = 21 sec, FF2 = 21 sec, FF3 = 21 sec, FF Gone Fishing=20 and Vampires v Zombies wait for it ... 15 seconds. So actually faster than FF.
Big win for me ignoring the bad reviews.

Hard, slow, and frustrating
I really love the Farm Frenzy series, so I bought Vampires vs. Zombies after playing the demo. The artwork is lovely and the characters so funny, nice sound, nice cartoon style.
But what happened to the gameplay?
1) The gameplay is ultra-slow. The vampires are moving so slowly, as does the car that takes the goods to the market, as does the supplier that delivers goods you need to produce the final products.
When I played the demo I thought things would accelerate a bit when I buy the upgrades later on, but I was wrong. Even with the highest upgrade the car and market are hardly faster than without any upgrade.
So basically, you spend most of the time waiting for the car and/or the supplier.
2) this is the hardest time management game I ever played in my whole life (and boy, did I play many time management games!). I managed to get gold on only a handful of levels, the rest is silver or - more often - nothing.
That's neither funny nor challenging, it's frustrating, nothing else!
3) when I finished the game (with miserable results), I wanted to replay certain levels, but what was that? You can't re-do levels after you've finished the game!
The only way to replay levels is before the last level. After you finished it, the game starts over on level 1.
Despite the funny, cute look and vampire/zombie characters, I can't recommend this game.

I liked this one, a lot. The graphics are fun, and there are a lot of upgrades and various things to do that make it interesting. If you try to kill the zombies too fast, while they are still smoking, they split into 2, which means you have to pay attention to what you are doing, and not just randomly stomp zombies! Each level has different goals, which also keeps it fun.

Yay - Vampire Power!
I loved this game - once I had finished it for the first time and had figured out what to do!
I don't very often play time management games, but I've enjoyed the Farm Frenzy games so I thought I'd give this a go.
I found it quite difficult to navigate the different screens, and to begin with I wasn't always sure how to achieve what was required, as there isn't much in the way of help if you're stumped. But, as I say, by the time I'd actually finished the first run through the game, I'd got it all figured out.
I particularly loved all the characters, and I enjoyed the scenery at the top of the page, where there are trees and you can see the birds, and the vultures that swoop down.

So. So. Slow.
I have never in my life been so truly bored playing a demo. It wasn't that it was easy, because believe me at times I was shocked if anyone could manage to get the expert times but it was just SO SLOW.
Literally half the time was spent staring at the screen and don't even get me started on that huge scene at the start that you couldn't skip. I don't honestly care about background stories for games like this, especially if the story is so random that it doesn't really make sense.
If you are wondering what this game is like, imagine Farm Frenzy with vampires instead of chickens...

Loved it then hated it...
This game had so much potential. I play a lot of time management games and I like a challenge but this one is impossible to get a good score. The vampires walk soooo slow and the truck that takes things to the market is sooo slow and also there is no way to stop the vampires from walking into the cactus that kills them. I don't understand why you can't push them out of the way or something. It was very frustrating but I love the concept of the game so I thought if I bought the game and played longer and saved up money for upgrades that by the time I buy these upgrades I can go back and replay the first levels and get an awesome score. Well, I was smart enough to read the reviews before I bought the game and very much appreciate the people who leave such great reviews. I read that the upgrades do not change those things and that basically I'd be wasting money. I do hope that maybe they come out with a game similar to this that will play out much better as I really loved the idea of the game.

I loved the concept and everything because it seemed different so I downloaded it to play for the hour then purchase if I liked it....NOT!!!!....About 15mins in it's soooo frustrating, the characters take FOREVER to plant, then the carriage takes FOREVER to take to market and such so you hardly ever finish your tasks ontime to get Silver, much less Gold...ugh!....I shall be deleting this download...Don't waste your time on this game!

Farm Frenzy Halloween Style
Just picture Vampires as chickens and Zombies as the bears and you have this game. The vampires plant the pumkins and you pick them. There may be some zombies that try to eat you and you just 'click' on them until they crumble. Buy new machines so that you can put your pumkins in them to creat new and more useful pumpkins to aid in your battle against the zombies. It's an OK game, but I really don't think it is worth buying.

I wanted to like this game. I like fun TM games, but this one was not one of them. I quit the demo with 42 minutes left. I was bored with the whole game. I guess I am spoiled by R2R, MKFP etc. Am over the dash games too. So I will keep waiting for a decent TM game.
