Differences

There are many noticeable differences.

iPhone and iPod Touch

For one, the seed packets are on the left of the screen instead of the top. They do not show the name "Bloom and Doom Seed Co."  The zombies' heads are slightly bigger, but their design is different.

iPad

Buttered Popcorn is a mini-game exclusive to this version. The menus and backgrounds have a new graphical design, due to the game graphics being redone for Retina Display.

More Ways to Play in the iPad version

The player can only buy nine seed slots, much like the Nintendo DS version. All the plants and zombies are in HD, giving them a new look. The player can buy all or some of the mini-games with coins (iPhone and iPad respectively). On a related note, the currency is called "Coins", rather than "Money". There is no Tree of Wisdom. Tree Food is replaced with four different Mystery Sprouts for the Zen Garden. The tenth seed slot is replaced with bacon. Killing zombies increases the player's pile of zombiesLast Stand was changed into a Puzzle collection; however, the mini-game version still exists. There is now a Quick Play mode, allowing the player to play old adventure levels at any time. The player gets the Crazy Dave's Twiddydinkies earlier in the game (Level 2-2) to buy mini-games, so Level 3-4 gives the player bacon, which Crazy Dave trades for $1000. Every December, Festive Mode can be enabled. When enabled, some regular Zombies, Flag Zombies, Screen Door Zombies, and Ducky Tube Zombies (regular and flag versions) wear a Santa hat on top of their heads.

Glitches

iPhone

  • Spikerocks sometimes are shown with no large spikes after being damaged.
  • Giga-gargantuars in Last Stand Endless will appear the same as regular Gargantuars, with no red eyes.
  • Sometimes your iPhone freezes if you press the pause button.

iPad

  • The Zen Garden does not support multi-touch.
  • The Dancing Zombie and Backup Dancer's graphics are very buggy.
    • When the Dancing Zombie loses its arm, the entire arm disappears, including the top part. It also leaves no rip or tear in the shirt, as if it did not even have an arm hole.
    • When the Backup Dancer loses its arm, there is no bone showing.
  • The graphics in the Zen Garden were very buggy in a previous version. However, they have been fixed.
    • The Watering Can switched colors after being given to a plant (e.g. green became golden, golden became green). The color change did not affect its range, so the Golden Watering Can still watered up to four plants.
    • The fertilizer bag immediately disappeared after the bag was opened, so the powder appeared out of nowhere.
    • The Bug Spray had the Fertilizer animation playing behind it.
    • The phonograph was incorrectly arranged.
    • Stinky the Snail's animations were completely messed up. His body was arranged strangely, and he had an accurately arranged duplicate next to him.
  • The app sometimes crashes when Adventure Mode is selected.
  • The app freezes temporarily when the Suburban Almanac is selected.

  • Playing Beghouled and checking the Suburban Almanac will change the prices shown on the seed packets.

  • Purchasing a Puzzle game pack in the Puzzle menu and switching to a different tab before the new levels appear will cause the game pack of the selected tab to temporarily unlock. For example, purchasing the I, Zombie game pack and switching to the Last Stand tab will cause the Last Stand game pack to unlock temporarily. The pack will re-lock when the player leaves the tab, or when one of the levels is played.
  • In a previous version, the game did not save a level when the player exited it. This meant that endless modes could only be played until the player got bored or had their brain eaten. This has been fixed in newer versions.
