Father-Mother Loves Plants vs Zombies

Inspired by my recent plea for Zeno Clash/Garry’s Mod mash-ups, veteran RPS reader Dartt revisits his own past glory to delightfully strange effect. A bigger version awaits you upon a click. The tragic absence of Tall-Nut aside, most excellent work, sir.

    Seems to be in a spot of trouble there, lots of Zombies in the pool.

    The photo of Father-Mother and Ghat really makes it.

  3. ...hmm... says:

    rofl. dont let them eat your fruits!

  4. Ploddish says:

    A post just for Dartt? I approve. More posts should be Dartt related. In fact, I propose today Dartt-post day. Get blogging, RPSers. And on the matter of Days, happy Norwegian Constitution Day!

  5. dartt says:

    Just doing my job, ma’am.

  6. Je Suis Un Bear says:

    Shut up ploddish, needs more BEARS carrying chainsaws and tophats and monocles tbh…

  7. Persus-9 says:

    @ LewisP: Yeah, Father-Mother is going to get owned by those two pool buckethead zombies. He doesn’t even have the pool cleaners.

  8. Sum0 says:

    @ Persus-9: He could stick a Wall-nut on the top lilypad and Squash the zombie on the bottom lane, but beyond that I’m not sure. Tall-nut would know what to do.

  9. The_B says:

    Thanks dartt, Thartt.

  10. Bhazor says:

    This is all well and good.
    But wheres the erotic fan art?

  11. Persus-9 says:

    @ Sum0: I don’t think that squash is going to recharge in time. Wallnuts are his only hope but it looks a slim one to me. A buckethead zombie can get most of the way through a wallnut if there’s only one pea chipping away at it and with currently nothing hitting the lower side of the pool and only that one threepeater hitting the upper side he needs to lay down at least two lilypads, two wallnuts and two peashooters instantly and even if he’s got the sun I think he’s going to get done by the cooldown.

    In otherwords. “Game over man! Game over!”

  13. Zaphid says:

    Has anyone applied rule 34 to any of these 2 games ? If not, the internet does not care.

    Looks like I’m not the only who saw the screen and thought: “Game over, not enough sunflowers and who the hell uses peashooters instead of repeaters ?”

  14. Larington says:

    Thats the first mention I’ve heard of rule 34, guess I don’t spend too much time on messageboards anymore. Probably for the best.

  15. Nick says:

    Rule 34: making up arbitrary rules isn’t funny.

  16. AlexW says:

    Larington, you should do yourself a favour and take a gander through xkcd’s archive (Rule 34: link to xkcd.com ). My favourites are Substitute, A-Minus-Minus, Forks and Spoons, Flow Charts, and Centrifugal Force. Mouse-over the comic image in all cases.

    On-topic, how did they survive to the end of the level? Their set-up is HORRID.

  17. dartt says:

    Hey, leave him alone. It’s hard for her to operate a mouse with those huge elongated fingers.

  18. The Hammer says:

    Oh wow. Now -that’s- some RPS, and Half Life nostalgia for you. I especially like how scrunched over Father-Mother is. Well done, dartt!

  19. Dorian Cornelius Jasper says:

    Poor Wall-Nut.

  20. Jochen Scheisse says:

    I just reched flag 49 on Endless Survivor mode, so do pardon if I allow myself to laugh derisively at the screenshot. Father-Mother obviously sucks at PVZ.

  21. DBeaver says:

    At night, when both T’s and CT’s are sleeping, Father-Mother sneaks into cs_office and plays video games…

  22. Oak says:

    Enter Zenozoik, a punk fantasy world where PopCap games will run in widescreen.

  23. Persus-9 says:

    @ DBeaver – Lot better than what he used to get up to at night, I think he’s making real progress.

  24. zak canard says:

    Nice, all we need now is Tall Nut in CS_Office playing Zeno Clash.

  25. dartt says:

    @zak Get out of my head!

    @Oak Zing!

  26. Rei Onryou says:

    This story is win.

    The_B is right. Thartt

  27. clovus says:

    What happened to that Wall-nut’s eye?!?!!?

  28. zak canard says:

    @clovus: There’s a pea in the way.
