‘Plants vs. Zombies’ Update Adds New Mini-Games

TouchArcade Rating:

Plants vs. Zombies [$2.99 / HD] for the iPhone just received a little more feature parity with its cousins on other platforms and a touch of free-to-play to boot. Creator PopCap Games has just added in a total of nine new mini-games to experience in-between your bouts with the undead. Each mini-game comes bundled in packs of three, all three of which you can buy through Crazy Dave for 50,000 coins respectively.

In a fun twist that I’m sure certain crowds are going to love, the studio is allowing users to spend $.99 three times in exchange for oodles (read: 100,000) of in-game coins. Naturally, you can exchange these coins in return for these packs — or presumably whatever else you want, including new plants or slots — from the in-game shop that Crazy Dave runs.

Here’s the listing of the new mini-games. “Beghouled Twist” is certainly the most interesting of the bunch, as it apes Bejeweled [$.99], one of the most electrifying match-three games on the market.

Game Pack #3

  • Walnut Bowling 2: Knock ‘em dead in this killer twist to an old favorite sport.
  • Seeing Stars: Unravel the mystery of the star-shaped pattern.
  • Bobsled Bonanza: Melt the ice and defeat bobsledders and Zombonis in this frosty battle.

Game Pack #4

  • Invisi-Ghoul: Test your prowess to take on invisible zombies.
  • Last Stand: Not your average day at the pool!
  • ZomBotany 2: Hybrid zombies sport plant heads and abilities to up the challenge ante.

Game Pack #5

  • Beghouled Twist: An homage to Bejeweled Twist, this mash-up requires match-3 skill.
  • Pogo Party: Crash the pogo party of your roof!
  • Zombie Nimble Zombie Quick: Get ready to move faster than ever!
