Plants vs. Zombies

icon175x175For anyone who has yet to pay the 99 cents for Plants vs. Zombies (PvZ) you should just stop being stingy and pay for it. PvZ is a strategy-based game where a mob of hungry zombies attacks your house in hope of eating your brain. To fend off the zombie horde, you have the help of your supernatural garden. There are 50 levels and 48 different types of plant, making this addicting game last longer. If you do buy this game, I suggest that you start on a different difficulty setting other than easy because then the game goes by a lot faster.



battlehearticonThis app/game is for your inner nerd. This incredibly addictive role-playing game allows you control a small band of fighters with their own set of special skills and battle monsters in this real-time battle game. Battleheart offers more than 100 unique times to collect and equip, along a 30+ level campaign. The only negative thing about this game is that it cost $2.99, which is a little more thanmost people to pay for a phone or tablet game. But the games last a long time, and with the many customizable options to your fighters the game is worth it.

Chegg allows you to scan the barcode of any textbook, and within second the book will pop up along with the option to rent or buy books. All the books you scan are put into your cart and wait for you to buy them, so there is no more waiting in line or waiting on Amazon to have you books sent to you one at a time.
