There are a lot of games that crossover from computer to smartphones like the blackberry smart phone and vice versa, but not always well. Plants vs. Zombies was able to successfully incorporate the full version of the PC game into an app, while Angry Birds developed a PC game based on their successful smartphone version. World of Warcraft took a different approach, and created a supplement instead.
Plants Vs. Zombies was originally released for the PC, with a Mac version that was released a few months later. The goal is to plant enough defensive flowers and mushrooms to keep the zombies from crossing your lawn and entering your house, where they will eat your brains. The game was met with a lot of success, and a year later a smartphone version was released. Both versions have all the levels in the Adventure mode, but the PC and Mac version has more mini games, while the smartphone app lists your achievements.
World of Warcraft is a MMORPG that is available for both Mac and PC. Through the Armory you can access your character profile, view your achievements and professions, and even adjust your talent points. The neat thing is that you can access the Auction House remotely, and make purchases or monitor your auctions without having to log into the game.
Angry Birds is an example of an app that was developed for a PC platform. Several birds are watching over a nest, but when they turn their backs pigs steal their eggs and make their getaway. The birds then attempt to destroy the pigs and recover their eggs. This game was originally designed for smartphones, but because if its popularity a PC version was developed. The smartphone version has over 700 levels, including several mini games that are activated once you start collecting eggs. The computer version has 195 levels and can be purchased in the Intel AppUp center, but it’s only available for Windows 7 or XP.
