Zombie Trap is the twentieth and last mini-game in the Nintendo DSiWare version of Plants vs. Zombies. To win the level, the player must trap 35 zombies in seven cages by using brains as bait.



The objective is to use the stylus to drag a brain across the screen to attract incoming zombies. When zombies are attracted to the red rectangle in the center of the lawn, you can tap the cage at the upper right of the screen, signaling their fellow ravens at the top screen to drop a cage down to the zombies. When you trapped the zombies, the ravens fly into the cage and beat the zombies to death. If you trap at least five zombies in the cage, their brain amount and number of cages increase by one. You will start with three brains and seven cages. You need to trap and kill at least 35 zombies to win.

When Zombie Trap is displayed on the mini-games menu, Crazy Dave will tell the player their record for the greatest number of zombies the player caught at once.


Bungee Zombies sometimes drop zombies right in front of your house, but fortunately, they can still attract them with the brains before they go inside.

  • Gargantuar and Imp are separated, meaning that the Imp appears without the Gargantuar needing to throw it. (You can also see that there are no Imps on Gargantuar's back when he appears on the lawn)
  • It is the only level where zombies appear in their degraded form.
  • It is the only level in which Bungee Zombies can drop zombies on the leftmost column.
  • It is one of two levels without any plants in Plants vs. Zombies. The other one is Zombiquarium.
  • It can be used for successful gold farming. If the player is still missing some mini-game trophies and can replay the level, the last zombie will drop the Gold Sunflower Trophy and five diamonds. The player will not get the trophy, but the diamonds will be saved.
