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!

    Stuck on last level Dr Zomboss is way to hard to beat.P.S his weakness is his head

    • counter his attacks using jalapenos and ice shrooms,and If you have a ton of jalapenos,use them to damage dr.zomboss a lot.I’m still stuck on him too…i can’t believe he drops CARS on your plants!

  14. Wait bomb boy, I was wrong. I just read another comment and I was wrong. I thought it was 10 stages w/ 10 levels. Sorry, my bad. P.S., I AM new :)

  15. NEVER PLAYED.

    • To get the yeti, beat adventure mode once, then keep
      playing until you reach level 4-10, Dark Stormy Night.
      You should see the yeti.

  29. awesome turkey pinewood derby king // January 8, 2012 at 8:01 am // Reply

    my idea is simple you make 2 rows of sun flowers in THE BACK ROW
    that way you have more sun then then you`l ever need i would recomend the water melon catapult

  30. Plant Idea 1
    Yam
    (upgrade of Squash)
    Looks like-Orange,white spots,fat,frowny face
    does-hits three places at once

  31. It is a good game just make sure you enjoy it while you can

    Just to let you all know, I love the cat-tail plant.I beat the

    boss and unlocked all of the mini games.(How do you get past the

    minigames, Bobsled Bonanza and Pogo party.)(I also love the
    watemelon Plant!)

      Lots of Tall-Nuts would help because they can’t be jumped/vaulted/pogoed over and they’re very durable. Put Tall-Nuts on the rows where the zombies appear and put some catapult plants and then you’re fine.

      • love plants vs zombies // January 29, 2014 at 12:12 pm //

        use spikeweeds to pop the tires on the zombonies so that there is no ice for the bobsleds (squash works too) use magnet shrooms to pull away the pogo sticks and then they are basically normal zombies

    in wall nut bowling there is a CHEAT!!! just wait for a pole zombie to pass the red line, place a wall nut inside him and he will blow up even with his pole still on him!!
