Plants vs. Zombies

Do you know any hints?

Games Guru: Buy stuff in the store with your points! My strategy? Plant many sunflowers. Always use a bomb or a peashooter of some sort. Plant a rock and put that giant purple zombie-eating plant behind it. Grind, grind, grind your way through.

Dear Games Guru, What are the strategies for defeating the zombies in the fog? Thank you!

Games Guru: Arm yourself with Planterns, which have sufficient illumination power to cut right through a sizable area of fog. Also plan to use the Torchwood (in combination with the pea-shooter strains of course, for fireball effect); the Torchwood doesn’t illuminate as much foggy area as Plantern, but is somewhat effective. Also the Blover plant, normally used for blowing back the balloon zombies, is helpful in pushing the fog back – temporarily!

    I have the DsiWare version. It’s a lot cheaper! I got three other apps with one 2000 point card. Get one at Walmart! they are $20.

    this game rules. the zombies are funny along with their descriptions in the Alminac. I.E: “Newspaper Zombie was -this-close to finishing his sudoku puzzle. No wonder he’s freaking out.”

    I kinda would like some advice for world 3 because the tube zombies always get through my barricade in the pool. note that this is the DS version (with crappy graphics)

  6. Have any of you guys heard of the secret yeti zombie? you get zen garden when you beat him… i not telling what that is, but i WILL tell where he is. I think he is in the level where the lights go out (very hard level) and is very hard to beat.

    • Sorry, but in order to progress through the game, you will have to buy the full version. You can download it from the Pop Cap website for $20.00

    • if u do not want any trouble with downloading or paying a lot, just get plants vs zombies on the ipad or iphone for $1!features:zen garden,minigames,quick play,and adventure mode cost features the same things except it has higher quality & multi-touch.
