This area is very easy, and is mainly just a tutorial to the game, Use whatever
plants you have, this early in the game. But make sure you have peashooters and
Now this is when it gets a bit harder, the sun no longer falls from the sky,
what I did was i used puff shrooms (the free mushrooms you get) and sun shrooms,
then when I got that set up I would start setting up peashooters and repeaters.
And at the end of the level, zombies spawn from the graves, so try to take them
out early in the level (P.S. The graves give some good stuff, crystals, plants,
Ok you made it this far, now we are dealing with a completely different kind of
strategy, what I did was I got lilipads, cattails (cattails are VERY strong,
they can attack any lane, and they shoot two spikes at a time) I also had wall-
nuts, cherry bombs (for emergencies) peashooters and repeaters. You want to make
each lane equally strong. And make sure you buy the pool cleaners, they help a
Ahh world 4, the hardest world in my opinion, basically its world 3 but you cant
see half the screen, luckily you get a plantern in a level or two and you can see
it then. I was stuck here for a while, but when I used cattails it was so much
easier, just use the strategy from 3 and 4, i recommend at this point using sun
flowers, and garden rakes (can be bought in Crazy Dave's shop for 200$" You
REALLY want to use the torchwood, seeing as how they make your peas to DOUBLE
damage. I personally have never really used the snow peas, but if your
comfortable with them go ahead.
And last but not least, the roof level, make sure you buy the roof cleaners,
you will need them. Here is what I did the whole time, first two columns are
sun flowers, third column is cabbagepults, fourth column is corn pults, and
fifth column is tall-nuts. When you get the melonpults I suggest replacing
column two with them. As for cob pults, dont use them, they take too long,
and they're not that good. Bungee zombies are best countered by umbrella
leaves. Get one or two in each row, NO MORE, they protect the eight squares
surrounding them, and their own. And my last tip for World 5, is gargantuans,
here's the thing, if they didn't throw the imp off of their back, then cherry
bombs would be all you need, however, I would advise using a cherry bomb,
then using a jalapeno on the row, to kill the imp and the gargantuan.
This boss is very hard the first few times you fight him, so try doing this.
Save all the ice shrooms and jalapenos you get, you need them to destroy his
fire/ice balls. use all the other plants strategically to fight off the normal
zombies. You WILL have to use ice shrooms and jalapenos occasionally, jsut save
as many as you can.
-=How to earn a lot of money=-
Here is the best way without a doubt. You want to beat adventure and get your
zen garden. Then play endless survival and adventure mode again to get plants.
Water plants and mushrooms give you 10,000$ just to sell them and they give you
2 diamonds when they're grown to full, which pays for the food, and more. Normal
plants like daytime plants and marigolds only give you 8,000$ to sell, but they
give you two diamonds when grown to full. (Marigolds only give one diamond).

To increase your plant growth
First of all you need to disable the full screen then go to your zen garden
after feeding the plants normally it take 30min or feed them again.
to feed them all you have to do is to change your system time for earlier this will
increase the growth & also buy more plants from Crazy guy.
for more info contact firstname.lastname@example.org
Even if you have "favorite" plants that you like to use, mix it up and use a plant
that might be out of your "comfort zone". The game is fairly forgiving of less than
perfect play, and you might find that blowing up zombies in a conflagration of
potato wedges or smashing them with a squash is more fun that you thought it would
Increase plant growth:
Disable full screen mode. Go to your zen garden. After feeding the plants, it will
normally take thirty minutes to feed them again. To feed them all, change the system
time to an earlier value. This will increase their growth.
Final Boss Trick:
When facing the final boss in the game, he will launch massive fire balls and ice
balls at your plants. The crush everything in their path except zombies(basically,
all plants in that row), but there is a way to stop them! To destroy the ice ball,
you must use a Chili Pepper in that row. To destroy the fire ball, you must use
an Ice Shroom, but with a Coffee Bean, too, or else it'll fall asleep.
Get the Zen Garden. Water the plants until they do not need anything else. Advance
the system date ahead. The plants will need water again. Buy new plants, grow them
to full size, then sell them. Repeat this to earn more money. You can also use this
technique when you have to get Marigolds in Crazy Dave's shop when they are out of

You open file user# in Your Profile folder by Hex Editor (with # is the number of game
and Profile folder in a main folder of the game)
In line 0008 and 0009 you change by "FF" you will get more than 650.000$, and in line
0010 you change by "01" you will get more than less 999.990$.
New seed selection:
If you do not like the cards from Crazy Dave, exit the game and restart. The cards
will change randomly.
Play Slot Machine for Extra Coins and Diamonds:
1.Set up your defenses around the slot machine. Try for one row of wallnuts on the
right side, one or two rows of sunflowers on the left, and fill everything else
with pea and snow pea shooters.
2.Protect the lawn mowers. Each are worth a Gold Coin at the end of the game, so
don't let them mow the zombies.
3.Stop collecting sun around 1900 sun points. At this point, the garden should be
full, so getting the extra 100 points to win should be easy. Just collect enough
sun to offset the slot machine.
4.Keep the slot machine spinning! It will randomly drop one or three gems as long
the patience lasts.
5.If the Zombies get close to the mowers, end the game. Just collect the sun lying
on the field to end the game.
Milking Walnut Bowling for coins:
Here's how to make Walnut Bowling more profitable:
1.Protect the Lawnmowers -- Each Mower is worth one gold coin ($250).
2.Line up shots off the front runner. After the first zombie is hit, each additional
zombie strike generates coins.
3.Create a front runner where none exists! Pole vaulting zombies run fast until
they vault over a nut, and the newspaper zombie runs fast after getting the paper
destroyed by a nut. Just let them run a little bit down the lawn before sending a
nut their way.
4.Just because you have nuts does not mean you have to use them. This is where "Nerves
of Steel" comes into play. When there are a few zombies ambling down the lawn without
a clear ricochet shot, wait a little bit to see if more of their friends will step
out to play. They can always be killed once they cross the red line.
5.Remember how many nuts it takes to kill a zombie; this is important when the cross
the red line. Use one nut for regular zombies, three for bucket wearing zombies,
and two for the rest.
6.Reserve the exploding nuts. Try not to use those nuts unless a mob crosses the line,
or there are not enough nuts or room to clear out a hard to kill zombie. Use the
regular walnuts for the zombies that have not reached the red line.
7.Don't use exploding nuts to kill pole vaulting zombies directly. Pole vaulting
zombies only jump obstacles in their own lane. A pole vaulting zombie who has not
vaulted yet will safely jump over explosions or nuts in their own lane; so find a
neighbor in the next lane and time the nut to hit when the pole vaulting zombie
gets close to the neighbor.
