I agree. This game is well worth the $2.

Although, from everything I read, the PC version does not have all the content that the console/mobile versions have. Oh well, still very fun the way it is.

It's a very great game, but it's a bummer that it wasn't updated with the HD graphics the console versions now have (it should be possible, I mean, Zuma's Revenge had an HD option)

When I played the demo a year or two ago the only availible resolution was quite low. Can you play PvZ in 1920x1080 by now?

i am so excited about this sale

because this is the best game ever

there is no other game like it

because everyone will enjoy playing it

regardless of whether you play strategy games or first person shootings you will love this game

all your friends, family, nieces, nephews, parents, siblings, boy friends, girl friends, co-workers, teachers, ect will also love this game

so load up now, buy extra copies to give away, makes great stocking stuffer, makes great gift whether christmas, valentine, birthday, or just for the heck of it

i just cant say enough about it or recommend it enough.

and for only $2 (80% off) no reason why not to buy 5-10 copies or more and give everyone at school or work a copy. too bad steam makes it hard to buy more than one copy at a time and be warned your credit card and/or steam may lock you out if you try to buy one copy at a time. so dont do it. maybe someone has a clue how to buy this game in bulk by steam. i wonder if you can use steam wallet. you know move $10-$20 into steam wallet and then buy one gift copy at a time.

After playing the demo (even at such a cheap price I like to be sure) I can say this game is awesome and definitely a bargain at under £2 so I'm going to be buying it and I recommend others do the same. You can try the demo if you're unsure.

when i first saw this game i thought it was another childrens game, so i ignored it and then i played it and i was hooked. so addictive and the music is so mesmerizing. and they give you soo much content and stuff to do. its an amazing value. i mean they really give you countless hours of gameplay. and at just $2 its insane not to get a copy. what can you get nowadays for $2 that is this great. nothing i can think of.

the game is unique masterpiece a work of pure art honestly they will teach this on in the schools when we look back at the history of this fine craftmanship it will easily stand out a millennium from now.

I'm confused i thought this game only used 800x600?
That's the only reason that's stopping me from buying it.

How do you change the game's resolution? I bought the game 2 min ago and dont see any setting to change it.

Thanks!

you dont they automatically use your graphic settings

looks like they scale whatever resolution that they are using to the graphic settings

check your monitor

mine tells me im running at 1920x1200 and it looks it.

if they would have been running my monitor at 800x600 the monitor information would have said so

just because they are using higher resolution does not mean things are going to get smaller and their will be different view. i think they have that hardcoded to fit the graphics, but you get a nice image, if i have taken an 800x600 image and displayed it on my 1920x1200 monitor it would not look very good.
if 1:1 it would be tiny and most of screen blank and if magnified it would look pretty blocky.

the fact that it looks great tell me they are properly handling the graphics.

This is from the faq on the sticky:

"What resolution does the game run in?
It looks like it runs in 800x600 resolution, but can also run in a window if you uncheck the RUN FULLSCREEN in the game options."

Dont know how the game detects your monitor setting but I'd really want to know, please.

Edit: Playing in windowed mode looks much better , so I'll just play that way.

Edit 2: For some reasons unknown to me, the game detects my monitor resolution if I uncheck 3d acceleration in "options" . Now the game looks really nice

It is 800x600. If you take a screenshot you'll see. It looks good though because they have some kind of subpixel sampling whatnot going on.

EDIT ignore this I was talking rubbish
