2.0.0 | Adventure Mode
===============================================================================

Alright folks, this is it! I know this will be the part youve been waiting for.
this is where I will cover Adventure, so let's go!

There are 5 Stages in the game:

Stage 1: Lawn (Day)
Stage 2: Lawn (Night)
Stage 3: Yard (Day)
Stage 4: Yard (Night)
Stage 5: Roof

Each type will be discussed during the walkthrough.

===============================================================================
2.1.0 | Stage 1-1
===============================================================================

ZOMBIES:
o Normal Zombie

RECOMMENDED PLANTS:
o Peashooter (No other plants to choose!)

LANES: 1
o Middle Lane


You start by seeing the game's basics, planting your defenders. Your first
plant will be the peashooter, which you might be using until you get to the
roof. Follow the tutorial and finish the level. You get the Sunflower Seed
after the level.

===============================================================================
2.1.1 | Stage 1-2
===============================================================================

ZOMBIES:
o Normal Zombie
o Flag Zombie

RECOMMENDED PLANTS:
o Peashooter
o Sunflower

LANES: 3
o Upper Lane
o Middle Lane
o Lower Lane

Continuation of the tutorial. You will be introduced to the game's most
important plant, the Sunflowers. It is recommended that you place Sunflowers on
the first two columns of all the lanes for fast sun. Place the Peashooters on
columns 3-5. Do not place the Peashooters until the first zombie appears. Just
keep on planting Sunflowers until the first one appear, then plant a Peashooter
on the first ombie's lane. This shouldn't be too hard, finish the level. You
get the Cherry Bomb Seed at the end.

===============================================================================
2.1.2 | Stage 1-3
===============================================================================

ZOMBIES:
o Normal Zombie
o Conehead Zombie
o Flag Zombie

RECOMMENDED PLANTS:
o Peashooter
o Sunflower
o Cherry Bomb

LANES: 3
o Upper Lane
o Middle Lane
o Lower Lane

No more tutorials this time, so let me guide you. You got your new plant, the
Cherry Bomb. This automatically kills the all zombie within it's 3x3 area. Use
it if you are in a tight situation. Anyways, same as 1-2. Sunflowers and
Peashooters. New zombie! The Conehead Zombie is tougher than the other zombies
you have encountered so far. If you encounter one, immediately put two
Peashooters in its lane. One can't kill it if it is placed on columns 3 to 5.
End it. You get Wall-nut. One of my favorites.

===============================================================================
2.1.3 | Stage 1-4
===============================================================================

ZOMBIES:
o Normal Zombie
o Conehead Zombie
o Flag Zombie

RECOMMENDED PLANTS:
o Peashooter
o Sunflower
o Cherry Bomb
o Wall-nut

LANES: 5
o Uppermost Lane
o Upper Lane
o Middle Lane
o Lower Lane
o Lowermost Lane

Your play area expands to five lanes, which means more sunflowers! Same
strategy as the previous one. Your trusty new plant Wall-nut protects your
plants from the zombies, it's actually a shield you can count on, on tight
situations, and you're short on money, place one in front of the zombie. The
zombie snacks on it for about 30 seconds - enough for you to pile up some sun
and buy a peashooter. End it. You get a shovel.

===============================================================================
2.1.4 | Stage 1-5
===============================================================================

You'll meet you new friend, Crazy Dave. He's so crazy, he even talks and
cooperates with zombies when they train! You'll know what I'm talking about
later on.

During this level, you won't need sun or to plant plants to defend against the
zombies. It's actually a bonus level which is also in the Mini-Games mode, the
Wall-nut bowling. Before you start, you get an opportunity to use your cute
shovel take out those Peashooters. After that, let's go bowling!

This mini-game's simple. More about the game will be put up in the Mini-Games
in section 4.0.0. End it and you get the Potato Mine Seed.

===============================================================================
2.1.5 | Stage 1-6
===============================================================================

ZOMBIES:
o Normal Zombie
o Conehead Zombie
o Flag Zombie
o Pole-vaulting Zombie

RECOMMENDED PLANTS:
o Peashooter
o Sunflower
o Cherry Bomb
o Wall-nut
o Potato Mine

LANES: 5
o Uppermost Lane
o Upper Lane
o Middle Lane
o Lower Lane
o Lowermost Lane

From here, the game gets a little bit difficult. Same starting stragy, place
the Sunflowers. When the first zombie appears, place a Potato Mine on the third
column of the zombie's lane. (Yes, third, beside the Sunflowers) After about 15
seconds, the Potato Mine shows up and when the zombie steps on it.. SPUDOW!
Both the Potato Mine and the zombie are gone and you have completed your
first achievement, the SPUDOW! Achievement. For more info, check the
Achievements section, 1.0.4. Moving on.

Just continue placing Sunflowers and the Potato Mines on the zombies' lanes.
When the time comes where there are more zombies and your Potato Mine is
charging, you now start to place the Peashooters on the 5 column of their
respective lanes.

You encounter the fourth type of zombie, the Pole-vaulting zombie. This zombie
charges forward and uses his pole to jump over the first plant it encounters,
then goes slow. So your Wall-nuts have no effect on this guy. So I suggest that
you place two Wall-nuts beside each other. In this manner, when the zombie
jumps over the first Wall-nut, it reaches the second Wall-nut which he cannot
vault over. He's one rotten meat. End it. You get te Snow Pea Seed.

===============================================================================
2.1.6 | Stage 1-7
===============================================================================

ZOMBIES:
o Normal Zombie
o Conehead Zombie
o Flag Zombie
o Pole-vaulting Zombie

RECOMMENDED PLANTS:
o Peashooter
o Sunflower
o Cherry Bomb
o Wall-nut
o Potato Mine
o Snow Pea

LANES: 5
o Uppermost Lane
o Upper Lane
o Middle Lane
o Lower Lane
o Lowermost Lane

Same strategy as the previous one. But instead of planting Peashooters, you can
plant Snow Peas. These plants gives the same damage as the Peashooters plus
gives that slow effect to the zombies. Use this on the Pole-vaulting dudes to
slow them down before they jump. They're also effective against the Conehead
guys. They can be killed by one Snow Pea instead of two Peashooters. You also
save 25 sun. How's that sound? End it. You get the Chomper Seed.

===============================================================================
2.1.7 | Stage 1-8
===============================================================================

ZOMBIES:
o Normal Zombie
o Conehead Zombie
o Flag Zombie
o Buckethead Zombie

RECOMMENDED PLANTS:
o Peashooter
o Sunflower
o Cherry Bomb
o Wall-nut
o Potato Mine
o Snow Pea

LANES: 5
o Uppermost Lane
o Upper Lane
o Middle Lane
o Lower Lane
o Lowermost Lane

Before you start the level, you now have 7 seeds. But unfortunately, your
seed slot is only 6 seeds, so you are forced to pick only 6 seeds to use for
the level. The recommended seeds are displayed above.

You encounter a new zombie, the Buckethead Zombie, a type far more tougher than
the Conehead Zombie. A single Snow Pea cannot kill it, you need 2-3 Snow Peas
take it down. Anyways, same strategy as the previous two. End it and a Repeater
Seeds is your prize.

===============================================================================
2.1.8 | Stage 1-9
===============================================================================

ZOMBIES:
o Normal Zombie
o Conehead Zombie
o Flag Zombie
o Buckethead Zombie
o Pole-vaulting Zombie

RECOMMENDED PLANTS:
o Sunflower
o Cherry Bomb
o Wall-nut
o Potato Mine
o Snow Pea
o Repeater

LANES: 5
o Uppermost Lane
o Upper Lane
o Middle Lane
o Lower Lane
o Lowermost Lane

You get a Repeater Plant, which fires two peas at a time. It's basicly two
Peashooters in one space. So more firepower for you. With Bucketheads and Pole-
vaulting guys invading, it's going to be more challenging. Same strategy with
the Sunflowers. But instead of all Snow Peas, place a Snow Pea then two
Repeaters. End it. You find a Zombie Note. Mini-game time.

===============================================================================
2.1.9 | Stage 1-10
===============================================================================

ZOMBIES:
o Normal Zombie
o Conehead Zombie
o Flag Zombie
o Buckethead Zombie
o Pole-vaulting Zombie

RECOMMENDED PLANTS:
o None

LANES: 5
o Uppermost Lane
o Upper Lane
o Middle Lane
o Lower Lane
o Lowermost Lane

You don't need sun for this. Same rules, you plant, but you don't select the
plants to use. So you don't need sun. You may only choose from the plants that
appears on the bar at the top of the screen. End it, you get a Puff-Shroom. End
of Stage 1!

===============================================================================
2.2.0 | Stage 2-1
===============================================================================

ZOMBIES:
o Normal Zombie
o Newspaper Zombie

RECOMMENDED PLANTS:
o Sunflower
o Cherry Bomb
o Wall-nut
o Potato Mine
o Snow Pea
o Puff-shroom

LANES: 5
o Uppermost Lane
o Upper Lane
o Middle Lane
o Lower Lane
o Lowermost Lane

In stage 2, the location is still the same at the Lawn, but different time. It
is nighttime, and there's no sun falling from the sky. So we're really going to
depend on our Sunflowers. New strategy though. I'm so tired of explaining, so
I'm just going to show you a diagram of how your Lawn should look like.

s s S p p p w . .      Legend:
s s S p p p w . .      s - Sunflower    w - Wall-nut
s s S p p p w . .      S - Snow Pea     . - Open Ground
s s S p p p w . .      p - Puff-shroom
s s S p p p w . .

The Snow Peas slow down the zombies while spammed Puff-shrooms takes care of
them. To protect these short-ranged Puff-shrooms, place a Wallnut in front. OR
you can just spam all those Puff-shrooms, then a Wall-nut. No strong zombies.

You might notice those graves on the right side. During the final wave, zombies
will pop out of those. One per grave. If one is blocking where you are supposed
plant, just move your plant to the left. That means you need to reduce your
Puff-shrooms. Don't worry, you have your Snow Pea.

A review on the Newspaper Zombie. These zombies are fairly weak. They move slow
at first, but when you destroy the newspaper they're reading, you'll provoke
them and cause them to move faster. Their health is as low as the normal ones,
so... No worries. End it, you get a Sun-shroom Seed.

===============================================================================
2.2.1 | Stage 2-2
===============================================================================

ZOMBIES:
o Normal Zombie
o Conehead Zombie
o Buckethead Zombie
o Newspaper Zombie

RECOMMENDED PLANTS:
o Cherry Bomb
o Wall-nut
o Potato Mine
o Snow Pea
o Puff-shroom
o Sun-shroom

LANES: 5
o Uppermost Lane
o Upper Lane
o Middle Lane
o Lower Lane
o Lowermost Lane

If you noticed on the previous level, there were some coins falling from the
zombies when you kill them, and you receive some prize money after the level.
You can use those things buy some plant upgrades, extend your seed slot and
more. Buying is unavailable for the moment so save up some money, $750 to be
specific, to buy the 7-Seed Slot.

Establish a lawn like this:

x x S p p p w . .      Legend:
x x S p p p w . .      x - Sun-shroom    w - Wall-nut
x x S p p p w . .      S - Snow Pea      . - Open Ground
x x S p p p w . .      p - Puff-shroom
x x S p p p w . .

Same as the previous one but choose Sun-shroom over the Sunflower. It gives
sun faster than the Sunflower, but gives only 15 sun when small. When it grows,
it gives 25 sun, same as the Sunflower, but at a faster rate. Watch out for the
Bucketheads here, as they have high defense. You have Cherry Bomb to put them
away fast. If you have more money, you can upgrade the Puff-shrooms to Snow
Peas. End it and get the Fume-shroom Seed.

===============================================================================
2.2.2 | Stage 2-3
===============================================================================

ZOMBIES:
o Normal Zombie
o Conehead Zombie
o Screen Door Zombie

RECOMMENDED PLANTS:
o Cherry Bomb
o Wall-nut
o Snow Pea
o Repeater
o Puff-shroom
o Sun-shroom

LANES: 5
o Uppermost Lane
o Upper Lane
o Middle Lane
o Lower Lane
o Lowermost Lane

Same strategy as 2-2. Actually we need to use those Fume-shroom on those Screen
Door Zombies, but a combination of 2 Repeaters and a Snow Pea should be able to
put them away. Here's how your lawn should look like.

Start by:

Don't forget to place the Wall-nuts after the Snow Pea for extra defense. Do
not place the Wall-nut if there is no Snow Pea, only the Puff-shroom in front
will be able to attack the zombie and they can only attack when the zombie is
chomping at the Wall-nut so less life for them. After the level, you get the
Grave Buster Seed.

Same lawn as above. By this time, you should have over $750 to buy the 7-Seed
Slot, which upgrades the number of plants you can use during a level. Save up
to $5000 to buy the 8-Seed Slot.

Don't forget to use the Grave Busters on the graves to remove them and gain
money. Just be sure that there are no zombies that will be eating it. You can
also use the Double Wall-nut techniques on the Pole-vaulting zombies. Take care
of everything and your prize is.. The Suburban Almamac!

===============================================================================
2.2.4 | Stage 2-5

Time for another mini-game folks. This is the Whack-a-Zombie. Same rules as the
game Whack-a-Mole. Hit the zombies that come out of the graves. In time, the
number of graves increases and you'll have to use the Grave Busters to decrease
them.

Whatever. Play the game! Enjoy. When it's done, you'll get the Hypno-shroom

Still the same strategy as the previous levels, but do not disregard the speed
and defense that the Football Zombie brings. Unlike the Pole-vaulting one, the
Football Zombie doesn't jump and as a result, doesn't go slow. It's nothing
though as you have the deadly partners Snow Pea and Repeater.

Don't forget the graves! End it. You get Scaredy-shroom Seed.

It's time to make a little adjustment on our defenses. When you see the Dancing
Zombie, put him down ASAP. He summons his backup dancers, which can make your
job a lot tougher than usual.

You can use an Ice-shroom to freeze all zombies on screen and gain a chance to
kill them before they defrost. Use Sun-shrooms for sun, the duo of Snow Pea and
Repeater for offense, and Ice-shroom for defense. You can use the Wall-nut to
block the zombies' path to your plants. You can also use the Cherry Bomb to put
the dancer and his assistants to smithereens.

Finish the level and earn the Doom-shroom seed.

Alright, by replacing Cherry Bomb by Doom-shroom, you can instantly finish the
level by placing Doom-shroom in the middle of the playfield. Its area extends
to about 5x5, so placing him in the center affects every lane. Same strategy as
2-8. End it, and you will receive another note, MINI-GAME TIME!

New zombie. The Ducky Tube Zombie is also a normal zombie but in water. If you
remember the strategies in Stage 1, use them. Remember to put as many
Sunflowers in 2 columns as possible while using ony Potato Mines as defense.
When there is more than 1 zombie and your Potato Mine is charging, start
planting Snow Peas followed by the Repeaters. After the level, you get the
Squash Seed. it's my personal favorite.

NOTE: The Ducky Tube Conehead Zombie and the Ducky Tube Buckethead Zombie also
      exists in the game.

Keep doing this until you can place the Snow Peas and Repeaters. End it, and

add Wall-nut to our arsenal.

New Zombie. The Snorkel Zombie cannot be hit by the Snow Pea and Repeaters
until it chows down on something. So we place a Wall-nut on a Lily Pad on the
frontlines.

Use the same strategy as the previous and get Tangle Kelp at the end.

Since there is no Snorkel Zombie in this level, we take away Wall-nut and
replace it Jalapeno. It can be used as counter to our newest zombie opponent,
Zomboni. This Zomboni leaves ice in its trail. You cannot plant anything in
this ice trail, so we use Jalapeno to heat up one whole lane. Killing all
zombies and melting the Ice trail.

Use the same money strategy as before, use Snow Pea and Repeater. End it. You
acquire the Spikeweed Seed.

We hafta break the unstoppable duo of Snow Pea and Repeater ends here. We need
the Wall-nut for defense against the Snorkel Zombies, the Spikeweed for defense
against everything in the ground, zombies and Zombonis. We still follow our
money-making technique. Be sure to place the Snow Peas in the pool for defense.

This is how it looks like:

s s S M M M M M M      Legend:
s s S M M M M M M      s - Sunflower    w - Wall-nut

s s S S w w . . .
s s S M M M M M M
s s S M M M M M M

This is the ultimate defensive formation. No zombie should be able to reach the
Snow Peas. If you want, you can put Wall-nuts to the end of the play area,
occupying all squares possible. Anyway, coast to the end of the level and get
the next seed, the Torchwood.

Note about the Dolphin Rider Zombie. It's land counterpart is the Pole-vaulting
Zombie. So your Wall-nuts in the frontline will be vaulted over. Use the Double
Wall-nut Technique against them. What strategy to use for the level? It's like
the last one. That's basicly unbeatable. Well, end it. Take the Tall-nut Seed
as a reward.

With Tall-nut in our side, Dolphin Riders and Pole-vaulters cannot vault over
anymore. That makes our job easier. Tall-nuts are a little tougher than the
Wall-nuts and that makes it more expensive. Not to worry though. Our ultimate
money-making technique will make it cost like $0. Well the only negative thing
about it is its recharge.

No problems here. Just use the same technique we used since 3-7. Finish it, and
take the Zombie Note about a pool party. Hah. Bonus round.

Ah, this again. Same rules as 1-10, 2-10 and 3-5. Nothing special this time.
Just do what you do and finish the level. You have beaten Stage 3. 2 more
stages to go, and the next one's coming right up.

From this point on, things get harder. Isn't that nice? Alright. You have
acquired the water counterpart of the Puff-shroom, the Sea-shroom. It's free,
but have longer recharge time than the Puff-shroom.

The Jack-in-the-Box Zombie is quite irritating. When his box opens, he explodes
and all the plants around him is affected as well. So take him out as soon as
possible.

The strategy to use in this level is the same as the previous levels. You just
replace the Sunflower with the Sun-shroom for faster sun generation. Another
thing in this level is the fog in the left side of the screen. It will be hard
for you to determine if there is a zombie coming on that lane, how many zombies
and what type of zombie. So be alert. Alright, let's rock!

At the end, you receive the Plantern Seed.

Let's replace Spikeweed by Wall-nut. We chose that over Tall-nut because there
is no Pole-vaulting or Dolphin Rider Zombie in this level. Place Wall-nut in
the lane where the Football Zombie is and quickly place a Snow Pea to slow it
down and kill it before it eats up the Wall-nut. As for the other zombies, just
do the same strategy from the last level.

After it's done, you get the Cactus Seed.

Alright, we did not choose Sea-shrooms for Cactuses. Cactuses becomes taller
when a balloon zombie is in its lane. It rises up and pops the balloon, making
the Balloon Zombie a Normal Zombie.

The Baloon Zombie is not affected by the Tall-nut, therefore it hovers over all
of your plants except when you have a Cactus in its lane or when you plant a
Blover Seed which will be acquired in a short while.

So we use the same strategy, but be sure to leave one column behind the Snow
Peas open for the Cactus. And only place the first Cactus when you see the
Balloon Zombie. After it's done, you get the Blover Seed.

Now that we have Blover, we can remove the fog blocking our vision on the left
side TEMPORARILY. This means after a while, the fog will be back and you can't
see again, but that's alright, we can save up to more than $100 to buy the next
Blover before the fog covers all of the left side. Its recharge time is fast.

Also, we now have our second weapon against the Balloon Zombie. When you hear a
sound like air being pumped into a balloon, place a Blover anywhere in the play
area and watch the Balloon Zombie fly away. Don't worry, it won't come back. So
considered as killed.

Same strategy as 4-2. The 4-3 strategy where we place Cactuses are OPTIONAL. So
we included Cactus in our recommended plants list. Finish the stage, and get...
A TACO?! Well, it's basicly just $1000 and some new items in Crazy Dave's shop.

The Splitpea is USELESS. It costs 125 sun and shoots peas in one direction. It
may protect you from the backdoor attack from the Digger Zombie, but it doesn't
appear often in level, just maybe about one or two times so its not worth
buying. Stick with Snow Pea for slowing down enemies.

The new zombie, the Digger Zombie is.. Well, quite impressive. He digs
underground and charges forward, then popping out at the back, where your
Sun-shrooms are. It eats in the opposite direction, so you don't need to worry
about your brains being eaten.

Splitpea is not a good choice against this one, despite being made for this
zombie, 125 sun is too expensive for a defense against a zombie that only
appears once to thrice per level. So what we do is, we let it eat one of our
Sun-shroom, then quickly plant a Squash. We just re-plant the Sun-shroom later.
It's cheaper to lose a 25-sun plant than planting a 125-sun plant. Don't worry
about being short on money, look at how many Sun-shrooms you have.

After finishing the level, you get the Starfruit Seed as a reward. And oh, the
strategy is still the same as 4-4. You also unlock the Puzzle Mode in this
level. Enjoy!

One of the more challenging levels of this stage. Because of thet different
types of zombies in this level, you need more plants. Don't worry, we'll manage
to repel all of them for another step closer to the end of the stage.

The Starfruit isn't that useful. It shoots in 5 different directions which is
nice, but its price kills your pocket. It's hard to get that much sun b

Do not forget to plant some Spikeweeds up front! These plants weakens the
incoming zombies, so our Puff-shrooms will have an easier time taking care of
them by the time they reach our second line of defense.

After the level, you get the Pumpkin Seed. Alright, off to the 4-8!

The Pogo Zombie has some similarities with the Pole-vaulting Zombie and the
Dolphin Rider Zombie. The Pogo Zombie also jumps over your plants. But the only
difference is that the Pogo Zombie jumps over and over again until it reaches
your last line of defense. After another one slips inside, it's game over. So
to counterattack this one, we place Tall-nuts in front, because ALL JUMPERS
can't jump or vault over the mighty Tall-nut.

It's still the same strategy though. No problems! After the level, you gain the
last plant for the 4th stage, the Magnet-shroom Seed.

Now that we have the Magnet-shroom, the Pogo Zombie cannot jump, the Buckethead
Zombie will lose his helmet and becomes a Normal Zombie, the Digger Zombie
cannot dig and becomes a Normal Zombie, the Football Zombie loses his helmet
and will be easier to kill. Isn't that neat? Oh well, the last stage of stage 4
where you buy your plants is this so finish this as fast as possible.

Place the Magnet-shroom in the 2nd and 5th lane of the 4th column. Any metal
equipment carried by a zombie will be attracted, therefore loses it and the
former carrier will be weaker.

End it. The zombies will send you another letter. Brace yourself for the
ugliest and most irritating level in the whole game, 4-10.

THIS IS IT.. It's so dark you can't even see your house. You must rely on the
lightning for light. It's hard to create defensive patterns for this, so once
you get a seed, immediately place it on the left side. When you get Tall-nuts,
place them in the 4th or 5th column.

Starfruits are very effective here. They shoot in all directions, so make sure
that you place them in the middle part. When you get a Pumpkin Seed, place them
in the Tall-nuts for upgraded defense or Starfruits also for upgraded defense.
Finish stage 4 and you get your first seed for stage 5, the Cabbage-pult Seed.

This stage is sooo cute. Peashooters, Snow Peas and the kind cannot attack the
zombies until they are beside them or they are in the top portion of the roof,
which is flat. But luckily, you have your Cabbage-pults. These cool
cabbage-flinging plants deals twice thand the Peashooter, for the same price! I
cannot see any kind of disadvantage on these plants. So off we go!

When we make money, we still make the same technique as the previous stages.
After two columns of Sunflowers, we place two columns of Cabbage-pults. Then
place Wall-nuts, upgraded by Pumpkins in front. That should be impenetrable.

New zombie. The Bungee Zombie does not walk to your plants. It comes up from
above. It targets one of your plants, commonly in the back, where your
Sunflowers are, then comes down and takes it away. A way to counter this is
placing a Jalapeno in its lane before it comes up, placing a Cherry Bomb before
it comes up, or placing a Squash beside it. I don't know what happens when it
targets a Potato Mine. I haven't experienced it.

Behind these tips, you should be able to win the level and get the next seed,
which is not actually a seed, but a card. The Flower Pot.

Now that we have the Flower Pot, we could extend our play area up to rightmost
side. But actually we just need that first flat surface. So there's 6 pots per
lane.

Start out by doing the same thing as the first level. Then After you have
placed about 2 Cabbage-pults, start placing pots. When you have placed the 6th
pot of the lane, plant a Snow Pea on it immediately. This is extremely
effective if you already have a Cabbage-pult on that lane. So the Snow Pea slow
the zombies down while the Cabbage-pult deals large amounts of damage. By the
time the zombie reaches the Snow Peas, they're beheaded.  :D

You can also place some Tall-nuts in front of the Snow Peas for super defense.
Once the level's done, you receive the Kernel-pult Seed

===============================================================================
2.5.2 | Stage 5-3
===============================================================================

ZOMBIES:
o Normal Zombie
o Conehead Zombie
o Ladder Zombie

RECOMMENDED PLANTS:
o Sunflower
o Potato Mine
o Snow Pea
o Squash
o Jalapeno
o Tall-nut
o Cabbage-pult
o Flower Pot

LANES: 5
o Uppermost Pots
o Upper Pots
o Middle Pots
o Lower Pots
o Lowermost Pots

Well, I'll explain to you what the new zombie can do. The Ladder Zombie carries
a ladder which he uses as his shield when walking and uses his ladder to cross
himself over your first line of defenders. Other zombies can use it too. So
your Tall-nuts have no counter to this whatsoever. So how do we get rid of it
before it places his ladder? Use Jalapeno on his lane.

Same thing regarding the money and the offense. You may try to do the Double
Tall-nut Technique, but if another Ladder Zombie crosses the first and place
his ladder on the second, then it's useless. The only thing to do is BURN IT!

At the end of the stage, you get the Coffee Bean which wakes up your Shrooms
that used to be nocturnal.

===============================================================================
2.5.3 | Stage 5-4
===============================================================================

ZOMBIES:
o Normal Zombie
o Conehead Zombie
o Football Zombie
o Pogo Zombie
o Ladder Zombie

RECOMMENDED PLANTS:
o Sunflower
o Snow Pea
o Squash
o Pumpkin
o Magnet-shroom
o Cabbage-pult
o Flower Pot
o Coffee Bean

LANES: 5
o Uppermost Pots
o Upper Pots
o Middle Pots
o Lower Pots
o Lowermost Pots

With the Coffee Bean, levels should be a lot easier. Place the Magnet-shrooms
behind the Snow Peas. The Football Zombie's helmet, the Pogo Zombie's pogo
stick, and the Ladder Zombie's ladder should be attracted. That means weaker
opponents for us.

Same strategy as the last one. This time, you only use Squashes for early
defense. Finish the level and receive th Water Can which unlocks the Zen Garden
Mode. For more information, visit the Zen Garden Guide. (Section 6.0.0)

===============================================================================
2.5.4 | Stage 5-5
===============================================================================

ZOMBIES:
o Normal Zombie
o Conehead Zombie
o Buckethead Zombie
o Ladder Zombie

RECOMMENDED PLANTS:
o None

LANES: 5
o Uppermost Pots
o Upper Pots
o Middle Pots
o Lower Pots
o Lowermost Pots

The rules are the same as 1-10 and 2-10. The difference is the zombies overuse
their Bungees. So be cautious about the Bungee Zombies. Anyway it's just the
same level as the others. There are just more Bungee Zombies than the other
types.

When the level's done, you get the Garlic, a good defensive plant.

===============================================================================
2.5.5 | Stage 5-6
===============================================================================

ZOMBIES:
o Normal Zombie
o Conehead Zombie
o Catapult Zombie

RECOMMENDED PLANTS:
o Sunflower
o Snow Pea
o Squash
o Jalapeno
o Pumpkin
o Cabbage-pult
o Flower Pot
o Kernel-pult

LANES: 5
o Uppermost Pots
o Upper Pots
o Middle Pots
o Lower Pots
o Lowermost Pots

Okay, this level's not very hard. There's a new zombie introduced to the game,
the Catapult Zombie. Like your catapults,  they stay from afar, and fling
projectiles on your plants. Your catapults can hit them though. You can
dispatch them quickly by placing a Squash beside them or placing a Jalapeno in
their lane.

For the first time, we are going to use the other catapult, the Kernel-pult.
This plant, no just damages, but stuns zombies temporarily by firing butter,
yes butter. When stunned, the zombie can take damage and get his shield or
headgear removed. Works well with Snow Peas.

Same strategy as 5-1. Since there's no metal-holders in this level, we don't
need to use Magnet-shroom and Coffee Bean. This should be a relax level for you
as there are no Bungee Zombies.

Enjoy and finish the level, to get the Umbrella Leaf. One of the two most
useful plants in stage 5, along with the Flower Pot.

===============================================================================
2.5.6 | Stage 5-7
===============================================================================

ZOMBIES:
o Normal Zombie
o Conehead Zombie
o Bungee Zombie
o Ladder Zombie
o Catapult Zombie

RECOMMENDED PLANTS:
o Sunflower
o Snow Pea
o Squash
o Magnet-shroom
o Cabbage-pult
o Flower Pot
o Coffee Bean
o Umbrella Leaf

LANES: 5
o Uppermost Pots
o Upper Pots
o Middle Pots
o Lower Pots
o Lowermost Pots

Okay, with the Umbrella Leaf, we shouldn't have any problems fighting Bungee
and Catapult Zombies. They will be just what I call 'graphical enhancements' in
the game. :)

Design your roof like this, start out the same, but make it like this.

Sf Sf Cp Cp Ms Sp      LEGEND:
Sf Ul Cp Cp Ul Sp      Sf - Sunflower      Sp - Snow Pea
Sf Sf Cp Cp Ms Sp      Cp - Cabbage-pult
Sf Ul Cp Cp Ul Sp      Ms - Magnet-shroom
Sf Sf Cp Cp Ms Sp      Ul - Umbrell Leaf

With that layout, I guarantee you finish the level. Anyway, you can use any
strategy you want, when you finish the level, you get the Marigold Seed. 3 more
levels to go!

===============================================================================
2.5.7 | Stage 5-8
===============================================================================

ZOMBIES:
o Normal Zombie
o Conehead Zombie
o Gargantuar

RECOMMENDED PLANTS:
o Sunflower
o Cherry Bomb
o Potato Mine
o Snow Pea
o Squash
o Jalapeno
o Cabbage-pult
o Flower Pot

LANES: 5
o Uppermost Pots
o Upper Pots
o Middle Pots
o Lower Pots
o Lowermost Pots

Hey, meet Gargantuar, the toughest zombie you'll face *EVER*. He's so tough,
you'll need 2 Jalapenos, Cherry Bombs, Squashes and the like against it. It
also throws its sidekick, the Imp, which is another type of zombie. It's not
much of threat though. Just about two hits from a Cabbage-pult will kill it.

Whatever. Be alert against it, and use the same strategy as 5-1.

I'll explain to you what the Marigold plant does. It's just the same as the
Sunflower, but instead of sun, it drops coins, which can be used to buy goods
in Crazy Dave's shop. But not that use useful though.

So end the level and get the Melon-pult seedm the by far, most effective weapon
and strongest plant. Cool.

===============================================================================
2.5.8 | Stage 5-9
===============================================================================

ZOMBIES:
o Normal Zombie
o Conehead Zombie
o Buckethead
o Jack-in-the-Box Zombie
o Bungee Zombie
o Ladder Zombie
o Catapult Zombie
o Gargantuar

RECOMMENDED PLANTS:
o Sunflower
o Cherry Bomb
o Potato Mine
o Snow Pea
o Tall-nut
o Flower Pot
o Umbrella Leaf
o Melon-pult

LANES: 5
o Uppermost Pots
o Upper Pots
o Middle Pots
o Lower Pots
o Lowermost Pots

Now that we have Melon-pult, we're going to do some serious damage. Design your
roof at the start by planting 8 Sunflowers displaying an E-shape. Next is you
must save at least 300 sun for the Melon-pults. (Yes they cost 300.) While
saving sun, you should use some Potato Mines to fend off small amounts of
zombies. Byt the first wave, you should have filled a column of Melon-pults.

Next step is fill a column of Snow Peas at the middle part of the roof. This
helps your Melon-pults to deal more damage and take the zombies out before they
reach your plants. Next is fill another column of Melon-pults. And don't forget
to place the Umbrella Leaves! That's the reason we planted an E-shaped
Sunflower pattern.

End the level and receive a letter different from the others. This handwriting
is HUMAN. Brace yourself for the final level!

===============================================================================
2.5.9 | Stage 5-10
===============================================================================

ZOMBIES:
o Variety
o Dr. Edgar Zomboss

RECOMMENDED PLANTS:
o Variety

LANES: 5
o Uppermost Pots
o Upper Pots
o Middle Pots
o Lower Pots
o Lowermost Pots

This last level is different from the levels you've been playing. Like the 1-10
and the same levels where there is a scroll above, you're going to wait for
your plants to scroll and use them against Zomboss.

Zomboss places different kinds of zombies against you. When his head goes down,
he'll be vulnerable to your plants' attacks.

From time to time, he'll place fireballs or iceballs on one of the lanes. To
counter this, just place a Jalapeno or Ice-shroom on that lane. It'll be gone
instantly. But when it reaches your plants, it's like the Gargantuar flattening
your plants.

I can't give you any type of strategy here as the plants scrolling above are at
random. I just hope these tips will help you.

After this, I want to say CONGRATULATIONS and you have beaten Adventure Mode
and earn yourself a cool achievement.
