Tips & Tricks to Increase Your Chance for Survival and Winning
Grow more and more sunflowers – Sunflowers are the heart of the game. Especially if there is nighttime and you do not have many sunflowers, you may no longer be able to protect your lawn against the brain-hungry zombies.
So, you should focus on growing enough sunflowers to collect energy and add shooting plants. Be sure to have at least 2 rows of sunflowers in the back of lawn where they can be secured the most. Once the first zombie shows up, plant a common pea shooter up to 3.5 squares off the first zombie. It will add up your time by killing the zombie before it eats your plant.
Select the plants according to the type of zombies approaching-
Be sure to check what types of zombies you are going to face before starting a level. This way, you can choose the right plants for the level. This is because you need specific plants to kill some special zombies. For example, you should have a canopy plant to beat the bungee zombie.
Look at the almanac –
Once you kill a zombie, it will be added to the almanac. If you do not know what the weakness of a zombie is, simply check the almanac. Remember that you need to do this before selecting the plants to ensure that you will not be left vulnerable.
Use Yeti Zombie to Your Advantage –
Yeti zombie is very special for the sake of your collection. This cute zombie is very rare. It is found only on level (4-10). It goes away once you complete the level. However, you can farm the yeti next time to collect 3 diamonds. If there is no Yeti zombie in the preview, close the game or restart the game. If yeti zombie bears too much damage, it runs away. So, keep some plants behind them to make him stay longer and delay his escape. Do not let the level to pass and keep farming the yeti zombie as long as possible.
Make money faster by playing “Last Stand” mini-game –
It is the best way to earn extra cash faster. You can just play the game as is and it does not matter if the level is cleared or failed. Let the golden magnets attract all the gold and you can collect up to 5k in two flags itself.
Make room for plants in Zen Garden –
Leave at least one spot to place a new plant in the Zen garden. Once it is filled up, exit the game, and get a spot-free if another plant drops by selling a plant. There are also 10 chocolates exist. You may not want to have a drop of chocolate rather than a plant. You can also play a bonus game like “Whack-a-Zombie” to chew up the grave each time.
Don’t wait to grow your plants –
If you just hate waiting to grow your plants and all the items are sold out at Crazy Dave’s Shop for the day, it’s time to fast-forward the time. Yes, this is the trick to refill all the items in seconds and you do not have to wait for the next day.
First of all, all your plants should be fed and watered for the day. Close the app. Go to Settings > System > Date & Time. Toggle off the button “Automatic date & time”. Now you can set the next date. Open your game and see your plants grown up. Now toggle on “Automatic date & time” to set the current date and time on your device. Make sure to close the app properly before changing the time.
Use umbrella leaf carefully –
To keep the bungee zombie at bay, the umbrella leaf will be your closest ally. The bungee zombie is very dangerous as it can steal any random plant it wants. To protect virtually all plants, at least four umbrella leaves are a must. Each leaf protects plants in 3×3 square.
