There are, I think, four people left on Earth who don’t own the following titles from PopCap Games: Plants vs. Zombies [$2.99 / HD] and Peggle [$2.99]. If you don’t, shame on you sirs. If you do already have them, here’s some good news -- Peggle now supports the Retina Display and PVZ now has the Zen Garden. Both of these respective updates are available for free right now.

The news of the Peggle update broke yesterday afternoon, just about right when the update when live on the App Store. This update fixes, really, the only issue I had with the original game, which is to say, its muddy, out-dated visuals.

The Zen Garden is a different beast. It functions just like how it does in PVZ proper. It’s an interactive garden that gives you cash in return for your green thumbs. You earn plants in the campaign or by purchasing them from Crazy Dave. As you earn more cash, you’ll be able to unlock additional gardens, which in return, will give you more cash to buy all the high-priced action plants in PVZ.

New mini-games, as well as Game Center-linked achievements have been added to PVZ alongside the Zen Garden. That’s quite an update, eh?

UPDATE: Awesome typo, bro!

    • Nick

      It hurts my soul, it truly does. I would sell a part of my spleen to get it for hd.

  • Brazilian

    Why don't they update Plants vs. Zombies to Retina Display? Oh Lord, why???

  • Chris

    I'm not seeing an update for PvZ HD...

    • Nick

      That's because there isn't 🙁

      No word on when that will happen.

  • Jared Nelson

  • FeelYourMind

    Too bad Peggle hasn't worked on my phone for almost a year. Emailed Popcap and they don't even respond...

  • palenoue

    What are the new mini-games?

  • Sebastian Peitsch

    At least he didn't write "Grate some Great Updates"...

  • Darryl Young

    I'm not sure about the Peggle icon, it's a little weird. The main update I've been waiting for is the only one that's still not here - Plants vs. Zombies retina! It looks awful at the moment on an iPhone 4, I hope the update comes soon. As for Peggle retina, great work!

  • Hampus

    Wish the would ipad versions of more of their games though. Peggle is expensive enough to be a universal app :p
