Hybrid mini-games are mini-games where halfway during the loading process, the mini-game ID is changed and the game loads two things: it initially loads the types of zombies, mini-game style, and the area, then after the ID is changed, it loads the amount of zombies, the effects of the mini-games and the new mini-game music. Often, this can lead to glitchy or unusual results. Some, such as ZomBotany Bowling, can be extremely easy, others, such as Zombie Nimble ZomBotany Quick, can be extremely difficult.
How to play them
- Cheat Engine
- Plants vs. Zombies (preferably with all mini-games unlocked)
Note: The mini-game ID stated below is just an example. You can use any other mini-game ID.
- Find the mini-game ID value using Cheat Engine.
- Enter ZomBotany.
- Scan for value "16."
- Exit ZomBotany and enter Seeing Stars.
- Scan for value "22."
- Exit Seeing Stars and enter ZomBotany again.
- Repeat until you have one address (that is the mini-game id; it will be different each time you open up the game, but once you open it up, it will never change).
- Enter the initial mini-game described below.
- Before the "choose your seeds" selection (if there is none, do it before it shows the zombies), change the mini-game ID to the new mini-game ID shown below.
- Have fun!
Note: Hitting the "restart level" will restart the mini-game with the new mini-game ID and therefore, you will have to repeat steps 2 and 3 to play it.
List of hybrid mini-games
Note that anyone can add a mini-game to this list, just make sure it's possible.
Warning: You must not have Dr Zomboss's Revenge as your final mini-game or else the game itself will crash.

|Can You Dig It?||Column Like You See 'Em||28||N/A|
|Dr. Zomboss's Revenge||Squirrel||49||Easy|
|Dr. Zomboss's Revenge||Wall-nut Bowling||17||Impossible. No plants can be placed. Flower pots can, at random, roll up and down like a wall-nut.|
|Last Stand||Invisi-ghoul||21||Hard. Impossible to see the coming zombies. Plan strategies wisely then it will be easy for you.|
|Grave Danger||Zombie Nimble Zombie Quick||29||N/A|
|Air Raid||Big Trouble Little Zombie||25||Hard|
|Bobsled Bonanza||Wall-nut Bowling||17||Easy|
|Seeing Stars||Beghouled||20||Easy (Except for the fact that some plants are sleeping)|
|Air Raid||Dark Stormy Night||47||Hard|
|Adventure (New User; move save data also)||Survival: Day||1||Easy|
|Last Stand||Whack a Zombie||30||Hard|
|Dr. Zomboss's Revenge||Column Like You See Em'||27||Nearly impossible (Jalapenos are very rare, One Ice-shroom for the entire level, Two cabbage-pults for the entire level, Melon-pults are very rare, occasional pumpkins. The rest is either a flower pot, or close to useless. At least one plant fills the whole column.)|
|ZomBotany||Whack a Zombie||30||Hard|
|ZomBotany 2||Whack a Zombie||30||Nearly impossible (hidden mouse)|
|Last Stand||Column Like You See Em'||27||Medium|
|Me Smash!||I, Zombie Endless||70||Very easy|
|Dead Zeppelin||I, Zombie Endless||70||Very easy|

|ZomBotany 2||Wall-nut Bowling 2||33||Easy|
|Slot Machine||ZomBotany||16||Easy-hard (depends on luck)|
|Dr. Zomboss's Revenge||Pogo Party||34||Nearly impossible unless you cheat. In this case, medium.|
|Slot Machine||Column Like You See Em'||27||Medium|
|Dr. Zomboss's Revenge||Zombiquarium||23||Very Easy (Sometimes Game Crash)|
|Dr. Zomboss's Revenge||Dark Stormy Night||47||Extremely hard|
|Survival: Roof||Air Raid||23||Nearly impossible|
|Dr. Zomboss's Revenge||Survival: Roof or Survival: Roof (Hard)||23||Extremely hard|
|Dr. Zomboss's Revenge||Invisi-ghoul||21||Nearly impossible|
|Dr. Zomboss's Revenge||Whack a Zombie||30||
Nearly impossible. Zomboss can be killed in one hit, but zombies will still rise from the ground. The level progress bar moves extremely slowly and after a couple minutes all zombies spawn at maximum speed, way too many to humanly kill. (No graves are visible, and no plants can be used, so there is no way to control the spawns)
|Dr. Zomboss's Revenge||Any Survival level||1-15, depends on survival mode||Very easy, if you choose the right plants, impossible if not (excluding Jalapeno)|
|It's Raining Seeds||Column Like You See 'Em||27||Easy-very hard (depends on your luck)|
|Dr. Zomboss's Revenge||Unsodded||38||Extremely hard if correct plants, nearly impossible if not.|
|Dark Stormy Night||Wall Nut Bowling||17||
Hard. Works similar to the normal Wall Nut Bowling, however Lily Pads cannot be obtained for the pool. The only way to kill aquatic zombies is via combos or Explode-O-Nuts. Due to the fog, it makes it difficult to see incoming zombies.
|Wall Nut Bowling||Column Like You See 'Em||27||Extremely hard. Wall nuts become useless. Offensive plants are rare.|
|Column Like You See 'Em||Survival: Day||1||Hard/Extremely hard. The plant bar glitches out and only the last four plant packets can be used (change the level back to CLYSE after picking your plants, they'll come back, then change it to Survival: Day (again)). If you pick wisely, you can win easily. Spawns large crowds of zombies.|
|Survival: Endless||Unsodded||38||Medium/Hard. Creates a unique front yard water level. Strangely, you can plant on the dirt tiles.|
|Survival: Day||Bobsled Bonanza||28||Medium. Creates a "playable ice level". Very easy if you use Jalapenos to remove the ice trails (however it defeats the purpose of the game). The ice trails are permanent and do not summon Bobsled Zombies.|
|Column Like You See 'Em||Can You Dig It?||46||Nearly Impossible. Similar to the regular "Can You Dig It?". In the beginning, you get a tall nut, magnet shroom, potato mine and other items. After a while, you will only get peashooters.|
|Grave Danger||Bungee Blitz||48||Medium. Similar to the regular Bungee Blitz, the only differences is that it is nighttime (obviously) and zombies will appear from graves on the final wave.|
|Grave Danger||Unsodded||38||Medium. Strangely, mushrooms can be planted without the use of the coffee bean despite it being daytime. The nighttime music also plays and graves are present. You can also plant on the dirt tiles. Overall, it plays exactly as that of a nighttime level.|
|Pogo Party||Big Time||39||Medium. Strangely, the wave starts off as normal instead of waiting a minute, making it harder than the normal Pogo Party. Luckily, you still have big plants to make things easier.|
|Air Raid||Zombie Nimble
|29||Very hard. Balloon zombies move rapidly across the screen. Blovers and cattails are highly recommended.|
|Column Like You See `Em||Wall Nut Bowling 2||27||Leads to Unstoppable Glitching Lawn.|
|Air Raid||High Gravity||44||Somewhat hard. Balloon Zombies fall to the ground after 2-3 spaces, making it easier, but Puff-Shrooms don't work well, but will work on Balloons early on. Also, fog is in average spot, and Cobs are useless (they cost too much). Easy to defend pool though.|
|I, Zombie||Survival: Endless||15||Easy. There's already 4 working rows of plants and only 3 seed slots available at the start. Strange effects happen after the 1st round.|
|Last Stand||Survival: Endless||15||Easy. 5000 sun is given from the start and sunflowers are allowed.|
|I, Zombie||Slot Machine||18||Very easy. There's already 4 working rows of plants. The slot machine works.|
|Last Stand||Slot Machine||18||Instant win|
|Dr. Zomboss's Revenge||Slot Machine||18||Extremely hard due to taking place on the roof at night.|
|Zombotany 2||Beghouled||20||Hard. Craters can't exist on water|
|Zen Garden||Beghouled||20||Depends on Zen Garden layout.|
|Bobsled Bonanza||Beghouled||20||Extremely Hard|
|Last Stand||Beghouled||20||Very Hard|
|Wall-nut Bowling||Art Challenge Wall-nut||36||Hard|
|Last Stand||Seeing Stars||22||Very Easy|
|I, Zombie||Big Trouble Little Zombie||25||Extremely Easy to Impossible, depending on plant layout and plants given|
|Zombiquarium||Big Trouble Little Zombie||25||Easy|
|Dr. Zomboss's Revenge||Big Trouble Little Zombie||25||Extremely Hard. Barely any pots, jalapenos, ice shrooms, or catapults are given.|
|Slot Machine||Portal Combat||26||Easy. Snow peas don't fire at zombies through portals, but frozen peas can pass through portals.|
|I, Zombie||Portal Combat||26||
Depends on luck. Backwards peas and stars don't pass through portals.
|Slot Machine||Bobsled Bonanza||28||Easy. Plays out like a regular day level. The only diffrence is that the there are only three seed slots and each row has four and a half squares covered with snow. However, the player can remove the snow with a jalapeno.|
