Though we normally leave iOS game coverage to our sister site, TouchArcade, I couldn’t help but note a significant update to one of my favorite games that hit the App Store today. Version 1.9.2 of PopCap’s Plants vs. Zombies became available today, adding new mini-games and game modes, Game Center leaderboards, coin packs to buy virtual goods via in-app purchase, and more.

The full list of what’s new in the iPad version is as follows:

  • ZEN GARDEN: Relax and start a plant collection in your Zen Garden. Find new plants in the game, or get Marigolds and Mystery Sprouts from Crazy Dave. Treat your plants well, and they’ll reward you nicely.
  • VASEBREAKER ENDLESS: It’s not just a mini-game anymore! Try to survive all 9 unique levels as you battle zombies hiding in vases. It’s smashing fun!
  • I, ZOMBIE ENDLESS: Change sides for a while and give your fun-dead friends a hand through this 9-level game mode. Help zombies get past the plants to their brainy rewards.
  • FOUR NEW MINI-GAMES: Try your hand at Slot Machine, Zombiquarium, Portal Combat, and Beghouled Twist — a fun new set of mini-game challenges!More awesome fun:
  • 28 NEW ACHIEVEMENTS: Earn even more ways to prove your zombie-zapping prowess.
  • LEADERBOARDS: Check out the 5 unique Game Center leaderboards and see where you rank.
  • COIN PACKS: Want great new stuff? Check out the brand-new coin packs for purchase on the Main Menu.
  • And now, the zombies are speaking your language! We’ve added language support for French, Italian, German and Spanish!

If you’re not familiar with Plants vs. Zombies, it’s a tower defense-style game where you deploy cute little plants that can shoot peas and employ other defensive tactics to defend your home against zombies. The zombies, of course, want to eat your brain. It’s adorable and fun to play and is appealing to both children and adults. If you’re not sure if you’d like to spend your money on it quite yet, you can check out TouchArcade’s review of it here. If you’d like to get a feel for the game directly first, you can play it on the web at Popcap’s site here.
