Stage 1: Daytime Front Yard

This level introduces your very first plant, the ‘Pea Shooter’! It’s peas are capable of bringing down a Zombie if it gets hit by Pea for few times. A basic Zombie will invade your home during daytime via front yard, eating anything in its path that includes your plants and brains! Completing this stage unlocks Sunflower!

Collect ‘Sunlight’ that drops down from the sky. It is an essential energy for produce plants. Soil your ‘Pea Shooter’ far away from the right to avoid Zombies instantly eating your plant up. It takes a few Peas to knock out a Zombie, so having multiple ‘Pea Shooters’ in a row speed up the process of defeating a Zombie quickly.

Zombies: Zombie
Plants: Peashooter
Unlocks: Sunflower (A plant that produces sunlight)

Plants vs Zombies Stage 1-2 introduces a new plant called ‘Sunflower’! It produces ‘Sunlight’, a vital energy source to create defensive plants around your home. You will need to collect them as how you collect Sunlight that drops from the sky during daytime.

‘Sunflower’ are defenseless on its own so have ‘Pea Shooter’ build in front of them to protect against Zombie attacks. Plant at least 9 Sunflowers to have a steady flow of Sunlight to be used to create other plants like ‘Pea Shooter’.

Completing this stage unlocks ‘Cherry Bomb’! It is a plant that can be only used once, which explodes and destroys all nearby zombies without hurting its fellow plants. Great against mobs of tough enemies such as ‘Conehead Zombies’ that will be introduced in the next stage.

Zombies: Zombie.
Plants: Sunflower, Pea Shooter.
Unlocks: Cherry Bomb.

Plants vs Zombies introduces a new Zombie with an orange hat, a Conehead Zombie! It has more defenses compared to basic Zombie, and it is difficult for 1 Pea Shooter to defeat it. You will need at least 2 Peashooters to take down Conehead Zombies quickly. Plant 3 columns of Sunflower to speed up Sunlight production and plant Peashooter on the row where zombies first appear.

Plants vs Zombies opens up 2 extra rows in front yard, exposing your home to 5 possible lanes for Zombie invasion! As usual, plant Peashooter on row that Zombie first appears, and have all 5 rows protected with Peashooter! Conehead zombies can take more Pea punishment than ordinary zombie does. Therefore, plant 3 columns of Peashooter to knockout Conehead Zombies quickly. To overcome Sunlight shortage, plant 2 columns of Sunflowers to raise Sunlight production.

Zombies: Zombie, Conehead
Plants: Sunflower, Peashooter

Plants Vs Zombies Stage 1-5 introduces a Bowling mini game! Instead of gathering sunlight to produce plants, you will be obtaining plant card via conveyor belt. Defeat the invading horde of zombies using rolling walnuts that acts as our Bowling ball. The red walnut will explode on contact with zombie. Completing this stage unlocks Potato Mine.

The trick to win this game easily is to not overspent your walnuts! Reserve them until your conveyor belt is filled or when they are mobs of zombies in your garden. Use your red walnut to defeat mobs of tough zombies such as ‘Conehead Zombie’ and use basic walnut to slow down fast zombies in their tracks.

Plants Vs Zombies Stage 1-6 introduces a new zombie with a pole known as Pole Vaulting Zombie. It can jump over a plant once except for Tallnut. Pole Vault Zombie runs much faster than Conehead Zombie and Ordinary Zombie. Completing this stage unlocks Snow Pea, the ‘Ice Pea Shooter’.

To overcome Pole Vault Zombie, either plant 2 columns of Peashooters to defend your home or plant a Walnut near the entrance where the Pole Vault Zombie appears. Once the pole vaulting zombie jumps over a plant, his running speed decreases to an ordinary zombie speed.

Plants Vs Zombies Stage 1-7 introduces Snow Pea. It looks like a sister of ‘Pea Shooter’ with a unique ability. It shoots Frozen Pea that is capable of slowing down Zombie movements as well as their munching ability, thereby expanding the life expectancy of plants especially Walnuts. Completing this stage unlocks a new purple-colored plant with a big mouth, known as Chomper!

As usual, 3 columns of Sunflowers soiled into your Front Yard with Potato Mine on guard against early Zombie attacks. Plant a column of Snow Pea and support them with Pea Shooter. Having more than one Snow Pea in the same row/lane doesn’t decrease Zombies movement further. Therefore, fill the vacant tiles with Pea Shooter instead after each lane is secured with Snow Pea.

Plants Vs Zombies Stage 1-8 introduces a new plant known as the Chomper. Chomper chomps a zombie whole without the victim any opportunity to counterattack!. Once it is devouring that particular Zombie, it becomes defenseless like ‘Sunflower’. Therefore, you will need ‘Pea Shooters’ and/or ‘Walnut’ to protect it. Completing this stage unlocks Repeater, a successor of ‘Pea Shooter’.

Plant 3 columns of Sunflowers to fund costly-sunlight plants. Use ‘Potato Mine’ against early Zombie invasion while amassing Sunflowers. Next plant a column of Snow Peas and fill the vacant front seats with ‘Pea Shooters’. Have a column of Chompers protected by a Walnut in front of it. Chompers are quick and easy solution against tougher Zombies like ‘Buckethead Zombie’.

Plants vs Zombies Stage 1-9 introduces a new plants known as ‘Repeater’, a successor of ‘Pea Shooter’. ‘Repeater’ shoots two Peas while consuming 1 vacant soil. This allows you to knockdown zombies half the time spent compared to Pea Shooter! Aid Repeaters with Snow Peas as they slow down Zombies movement and the process of Zombies munching down your plants!

Upon completing this stage, you will receive a note left by the Zombies. The message is about Zombies launching an all-out attack on your house!

Plants vs Zombies Stage 1-10 is the final front yard battle against Zombies who will launch a full scale attack during daytime! You will be supplied with random plants through a conveyor belt without the need of collecting sunlight.

Plant shooting pea plants in row where the zombies first appear in your lawn. Plant cherry bombs when your peashooters are unable to handle mobs of incoming zombie. Plant wallnuts to stop zombies dead in their tracks and have Potato Mines and Chompers behind them to handle Pole Vaulting Zombies!

Complete this stage to unlock ‘Puff Shroom’! A new plant that is only active during night time. It has a shorter engaging range compared to ‘Pea Shooter’. Best part is it does not cost any Sunlight to grow.

Plants vs Zombies Stage 2-1

Plants vs Zombies Stage 2-1 introduces ‘Puff Shroom’ that awakes during night time! It does not require any Sunlight, making it very useful against early Zombie invasion especially basic Zombies! However, with its limited range, it could not attack Zombies from afar. It could buy some time to plant more powerful plants against tougher Zombies as the stage progresses. Completing this stage unlocks ‘Sun Shroom’!

Plant 2 columns of Sunflowers while Puff Shroom are planted whenever the first Zombie arrive on that lane. Have at least 2 Puff Shroom guarding each lane to easily take out a basic zombie. This stage introduces ‘Newspaper Zombie’ that uses the paper as a shield against projectiles such as the one shot from ‘Pea Shooter’ and ‘Puff Shroom’. He will grunt and moves double the speed when his newspaper is destroyed. A Chomper can easily devour Newspaper Zombie, leaving basic Zombies for Puff Shroom to battle.

Plants vs Zombies Stage 2-2 introduces Sun-Shroom, a mini plant that produces small amount of sunlight. Once it matured, it produces the same amount of Sunlight as Sunflower. Completing this stage unlocks Puff Shroom brother, Fume Shroom! With Sun Shroom low Sunlight cost, you can fill your front yard with these little guys quickly compared to Sunflower.

Plant 3 columns of Sun Shroom while protecting these defenseless sunlight producers with Puff Shroom. Plant Puff Shroom on the lane where the first Zombie appears. Stack up to 3 Puff Shrooms in a lane to handle ‘Newspaper Zombie’ and ‘Conehead Zombie’.

After amassing Sun Shroom, plant 1 column of Snow Pea, Chomper and Repeater in sequence. Chomper will be sufficient to deal with Buckethead Zombies, while Repeater and Snow Pea will deal with Conehead Zombie and Newspaper Zombie. Dig up Sun Shroom to make space for another column of Repeaters! Use Cherry Bomb to destroy zombies that appear from graveyard to prevent sudden rush of zombies.

Zombies: Zombie, Conehead Zombie, Buckethead Zombie, Newspaper Zombie.
Plants: Sun Shroom, Puff Shroom, Snow Pea, Chomper, Repeater, Cherry Bomb.
Unlocks: Fume Shroom.

Plants vs Zombies Stage 2-3 introduces Fume Shroom that sprays purple bubble fume towards zombies. This fume is capable of hitting multiple zombies and it can penetrate the shield wielded by ‘Screen Door Zombie’. Repeaters nor Snow Pea would be not be any more efficient than Fume Shroom itself, plus its a little more cheaper than the primary attacking plants.

Build 2 columns of Sun Shroom instead of 3 since Fume Shroom cost less Sunlight compared to daytime plants. Next build 2 columns of Fume Shroom, backing up the Puff Shroom that was earlier placed to prevent early zombie invasion.

Zombies: Zombie, Conehead Zombie, Screen Door Zombie.
Plants: Sun Shroom, Puff Shroom, Fume Shroom, Snow Pea, Chomper, Cherry Bomb.

Plants vs Zombies Stage 2-4 Your neighbor Dave will sell you an extra seed slot for $750 on this stage. Purchase it to allow more seed slot to be used during battle against Zombies!

This stage introduces Grave Buster that has the ability to remove Grave Tombs that appeared in your front yard during nighttime. Busting the grave tombs will reward you some silver coins, and occasionally gold coins. These coins can be use to purchase stuff from Dave such as extra seed slot and plant’s upgrade.

Build 2 columns of Sun Shroom followed by either 4 columns of Fume Shroom or 3 columns of Fume Shroom supported by Snow Pea. You can have Puff Shroom a little closer to the right with 1 vacant tile between your primary plants to force Pole Vault Zombies from ever running too fast to your plants!

Plants vs Zombies Stage 2-5 introduces another new mini game where you smash zombie heads with a hammer! Occasionally, thees zombies will drop Sunlight or Coins. Removing their grave tombs will also reward you with nice valuable coins. Buy Grave Buster using the Sunlight you scavenged from the dead to remove the Grave Tombs from your front yard, otherwise you will be overwhelm by the number of zombies invading during nighttime!

Plants vs Zombies Stage 2-6 introduces a new zombie who loves football! It wears a metal headgear which reduces damage taken from attacking plants! Our Shrooms are no match for these powerful zombies. Therefore, instead of fighting them using brute strength, why not make them as ally instead? That is where Hypno Shroom comes into play! Hypnotize powerful zombies such as Headwear Zombie by allowing them to have a piece of Hypno Shroom. Once eaten, Hypno Shroom vanishes from soil and takes control of the zombie who has eaten him.

As practiced in previous stage, build 3 columns of Sun Shrooms to have extra Sunlight to produce better defenses such as Fume Shroom while funding Grave Buster to remove annoying tombs that pops around your front yard. You can have 2 columns of Sun Shrooms, but it will be much slower to fund these two at the same time.

Zombies: Zombie, Conehead Zombie, Headwear Zombie.
Plants: Sun Shroom, Puff Shroom, Fume Shroom, Grave Buster, Hypno Shroom, Walnut, Cherry Bomb.
Unlocks: Scaredy Shroom.

Plants vs Zombies Stage 2-7 introduces Scaredy Shroom! A Shroom that attacks similarly to a Pea Shooter but burrows halfway underground whenever a zombie approaches really close, making it defenseless like Sunflower. It makes a great combination with either Puff Shroom and Fume Shroom possessing limited attacking range. Have a plant in front of Scaredy Shroom to prevent it from hiding itself into the soil.

Plant 2 columns of Sun Shrooms, followed by 2 columns of Scaredy Shrooms and 1 column of Fume Shroom. Fill in the vacant gaps with Puff Shroom since it does not cost any Sunlight. This setup alone supported with Hypno Shroom is able to win this stage much easily compared to previous stages. There are possibilities that more than 1 tough zombie appears during invasion, so we can’t solely rely on Hypno Shroom. Hold off the zombie mobs with Walnut and knockout zombies with your other attacking Shrooms.

Zombies: Zombie, Conehead Zombie, Screen Door Zombie, Headwear Zombie.

Plants vs Zombies Stage 2-8 introduces a Dancing Zombie, a parody of Michael Jackson (a zombie with black hair and red suit). However, it was change by Pop Cap due to legal reasons that they have to abide by ‘The Estate of Michael Jackson’. This Dancing Zombie has the ability to summon 4 backup dancers into play, which can quickly overwhelm all of your plants unless the ain dancer is being defeated quickly. It would be fairly difficult to get Hypno Shroom on the main dancer unless there is a vacant soil below him.

Plant 2 columns of SunShrooms and use Scaredy Shrooms to aid Puff Shroom. This stage can be cleared quickly without the need of Fume Shroom. Freeze all zombies in your front yard using Ice Shroom to buy some time for Scaredy Shroom to knockout Dancing Zombie and its lackeys.

Plants vs Zombies Stage 2-9 introduces Doom Shroom, a 1 time use plant similarly to Cherry Bomb. It destroys all zombies in a big area, leaving a crater behind. This crater prevents you from placing any plant in that soil until it has been recovered after for some time. Apply the same strategy as before, 2 columns of Sun Shroomoms, Scaredy Shrooms and Fume Shrooms.

Upon completing this stage, you will receive a note from zombie ‘Hello, We wood like to visit for a midnight znack. How does ice cream and brains zound? Sincerely, the zombies. This means its an all-out zombie attack!

Plants vs Zombies Stage 2-10 invites all zombies at nighttime for a full-scale attack! By successfully preventing them here will crush their hope in ever getting into the house through front yard. You will be supplied with random plants through a conveyor-belt, so you are less burden in gathering Sunlight to produce plants.

Plant Scaredy Shroom in the first 3 columns from house, followed by 3 columns of Fume Shroom. Plant Puff Shroom in front of Fume Shroom to protect them. Reserve Hypno Shroom for tougher enemies such as Headgear Zombie (Red Shirt Footballer) or any zombies that are too close for comfort. Finally, spam Doom Shroom on the final wave to complete this stage instantly.

Plants vs Zombies Stage 3-1 introduces a new part of your house, the swimming pool! This invites new zombie to the backyard, Ducky Tube Zombie who is able to wear Cone or Metal Bucket to increase its toughness. Use Lily Pad on swimming pool to allow plants to be placed on that tile. However, you can’t plant a Potato Mine on Lily Pad, only on soil!

Plants vs Zombies Stage 3-2 introduces Squash which is an instant use plant similar to Cherry Bomb, but does not have carry the cool explosion effect! It is capable of squashing multiple zombies provided they are all stacked up tightly. This can be done by having a Walnut barrier to hold mobs of zombies within a position, and then place a Squash to clear them in a single go.

Before you start this battle, your neighbor Dave will be selling you an upgrade of 8 Seed Slot for $5000. This can happen on any stage provided you have first achieve $5000 cash in hand. I just bought it to be able to carry more variety of Plant Cards.

Plants vs Zombies Stage 3-3 introduces Threepeater! Its basically a Pea Shooter that shoots a pea in 3 lanes but consumes only 1 vacant soil. Plant Threepeater on row 2 and 5 to cover all zombie lanes. Planting them on Row 1 and 6 waste 1 Pea shot. Support Threepeater with Snow Pea to slow down incoming zombies.

This stage also introduces Snorkel Zombie that submerges in your swimming pool. While submerge, Peas can’t hit it. You will need to have Walnuts on Lily Pad, both stationed at column 6. Reason being, the Walnut will force Snorkel Zombies out of water and chomp its body, buying some time for offensive plants to knock it out. Also, during the final zombie invasion wave, random zombies will appear, at most at 6 column in swimming pool.

Completing this stage unlocks Tangle Kelp, an aquatic plant that pulls zombie underwater to drown them, a solution towards getting rid of Snorkel Zombie instantly!

Plants vs Zombies Stage 3-4 introduces Tangle Kelp, an aquatic plant similar to Lily Pad, only can be placed in water which in that case, our swimming pool. I find it awkward to have plants in my swimming pool though. But it could not be help since zombies wants to invade via the pool using Snorkels and Ducky Tubes.

Tangle Kelp is useful in putting zombies out of your house, especially Snorkel Zombies who avoids being targeted by Peas while submerged. Place a few Tangle Kelps nearby your walnut to prevent them from Snorkel Zombies from chomping their hard shell.

Upon completing this stage, you will find Dave’s car key, which will leads you to more buying options! Dave car trunk will have premium upgrades for plants such as 9 Seed Slot upgrade, Pool Cleaner (wipes out all zombies within a single lane when zombies manage to get into your house), Garden Rake (takes out first zombies that steps on it, only lasts for 3 gameplays), Twin Sunflower (double sunlight production) and Gatling Peas (doubles Repeater Pea shot).

Plant Walnut on the 4th column starting from the left, while Pea Shooters are planted depending on where the first zombie arrives. Use Cherry Bomb to destroy zombies that are not protected by Pea Shooter or tough zombies such as Headgear Zombie.

Upon completing this stage, you will unlock Jalapeno. It’s a plant which instantly destroys an entire lane of zombie (back and front) the moment when it is planted on to a vacant soil.

Plants vs Zombies Stage 3-6 introduces Zomboni, a zombie that drives an ice truck. The path that is crossed by the ice truck will be covered with ice, preventing you from planting any plants on the vacant soil. This can be undone by melting those ice path using Jalapeno.

Another way is to simply breakdown that truck using many peas shot by Repeaters before it could make its ice path or Chomper with instant kill. Snow Pea has no effect against this truck though. A Potato Mine will also do the trick by destroying Zomboni vehicle! Same goes with Squash, Cherry Bomb and Doom Shrom. Completing this stage unlocks Spike Weed, the solution to Ice Truck encounter.

Plants vs Zombies Stage 3-7 introduces Spike Weed, a plant that pops tires like the ones from Zomboni (Ice Truck) thereby destroying it instantly, but it will sacrifice itself as well. It can also hurt all zombies that walked over it.

Plant Spikeweed after you have your Snow Pea and Repeaters up at the very front garrison where the zombie first appear on that vacant soil. This will allow Spikeweek to poke Zombies feet, hurting them as they pass by. Also, it can destroy Zomboni instantly without having them to freeze the soil. Upon completing this stage, you will unlock Torchwood, a damage amplifier specially made for Peas.

Plants vs Zombies Stage 3-8 introduces Torchwood. It’s a stump with glowing fire on top of its head. This fire engulfs any peas including Snow Pea into Fireballs. Fireballs does splash damage and also removes the slow freezing effect caused by Snow Pea or any plants that curse zombies with freezing effect. So if you are into Fireballs, just go with Pure Repeaters (with Gatling Gun) or Threepeater, without Snow Pea.

This stage also introduces a new zombie, Dolphin Rider Zombie that is capable of jumping over a plant on your swimming pool, similarly to how a Pole Vaulting Zombie jumps over a plant on land. It is pretty fast with the Zombie Dolphin swimming across your swimming pool.

To stop it, plant a Lily Pad to force it to jump over and slow down its movement. Or use Tangle Kelp to drown any water zombies instantly. Completing this stage unlocks a tall walnut, specially made to prevent zombies from leaping over.

Plants vs Zombies Stage 3-9 introduces Tall-nut. It is a successor of Walnut but with a taller sturdier body. With its massive height, it is capable of blocking zombies that has the ability to leap over it. It’s massive size does not seem to bother Lily Pad from keeping it afloat.

Plant Tall-nut at column 4 from the left to prevent random zombies from appearing at the final wave and prevent Dolphin Zombies from charging into your aquatic plants. Plant Torchwood just before Tall-Nut, and serve Peas using Threepeater planted at row 2 and row 5.

Upon completing this stage, you will receive a note left by the Zombies ‘Hello, We herd you were having a pool party. We think that iz fun. Well be rite over. Sincerely, the Zombies. Well that basically means they are going to perform a full-scale attack on your Swimming Pool house on daytime!

Place Plantern on the 2nd column from the right, with Walnut guarding in front to prevent Zombies from eating it. Support these 2 plants with Fume Shroom. Once those areas are secured, moved on to guarding the Swimming Pool with Walnuts on Lily Pad and Fume Shroom defending it from behind.

Blover is a temporary fix against Balloon Zombies, a permanent would be a Plantern that lights up the fog and using Cattail (that can be purchased from Dave’s Shop). Cattail shoots homing spikes that targets any zombies at any location/lane.
