Plants vs. Zombies 2 on Nook HD+

What is the performance like on the HD+ (for games).  I want to buy the HD+ for books, but every once in a while, my kids will want to borrow it for games.  I know for a fact they will but PVZ2 on this thing.  I also know what a resource hog this game is.  Can the HD+ handle it?  Has anyone here tried it?

Can't see why it wouldn't work but it's not available yet on Google Play. If NFSMW, Asphalt 8, Riptide GP, Fieldrunners 2, work great and even Sine Mora works fine for the most part, PvZ2 shouldn't be a problem.

Re: Plants vs. Zombies 2 on Nook HD+

I have PVZ (the original one) on my HD+ and it runs just fine. I have both an HD and and HD+ and I've installed a number of games on them and never had a problem.

I'm sure that some of the very resource intensive games would have issues, although I haven't tried them, but none of the everyday games do. These seem to be pretty fine machines for just about any apps.

It's on the google play market now. Though it shows my HD+ as an incompatible device.

 

This is terrible.

Hate to break it to you, but it is still only available for iOS.  You sure you weren't looking at one of the numerous guides listed in the Play Store?

The only place it is available for Android is Australia/New Zealand. It's an iOS exclusive in the States for a bit longer.

 

I'm very jealous if you live there.

^^^ Are you certain?

 

This page had me certain it was released.

 

I would be a lot happier if what you say is true.

In an attempt to make you happier:  The link you provided is indeed for PvZ2 in the Play Store.  However it shows as published by "EA Swiss Sarl"

 

In the US (and possibly other markets but I have no way to verify) PvZ and other Popcap games are published by "Electronic Arts Inc"

 

I would therefore asume that FT is correct and the former is an International division publishing in Australia/NZ Market.

Never mind, Schwa and I were posting approximately the same thing at the same time.  No need for a double dip of the same info.

PVZ2 launched today worldwide for Android (and is perfectly compatible with NOOK devices). Enjoy.
