Plants vs. Zombies Free Trial is a free PC version of Plants vs. Zombies. It is meant to be an advertisement for the full version of the game. The player can only play up to Level 3-4 in Adventure Mode in this version. After they finish Level 3-4, an advertisement called Upsell appears and suggests them to purchase the full version. It will automatically link the player to the way to get it.
