For other uses, see Ancient Egypt (disambiguation).

Ancient Egypt is the 1st world in Plants vs. Zombies 2. The player's real journey starts here and the world itself is home to a variety of mummy zombies. There are 25 levels (10 "Expansion" levels that are much more difficult also exist for this world, however they are limited time levels only accessed in the Travel Log since the 7.4 update) in this world, 7 plants to be obtained and 15 zombies to fight against.

When Crazy Dave, the player and Penny travel here, Penny says that Dave must wait 4500 years for his taco to be ready, which places this era into the Fifth Dynasty.

In this world, the lawn functions exactly as it normally would on a daytime level from the original Plants vs. Zombies. The main difference here is that tombstones spawn in at the start of the levels (just like night levels from Plants vs. Zombies, except that it is considered daytime with sun dropping from the sky).

Game description

Zombies infest one of Earth's earliest civilizations! Tackle mummified monsters and more under the scorching sun of Egypt, circa 2500 BC!

Order of events

After Day 5 of the tutorial, the player meets Crazy Dave along with Penny and "accidentally" travels to Ancient Egypt. During Day 1, the player is introduced to Plant Food. After beating Day 1, the player unlocks the Map of Space-Time-Ness. The player unlocks the Bloomerang after Day 2. When the player beats Day 4, the player unlocks the Power Ups (which is explained in Day 5 along with the ability to play Piñata Party levels).

After Day 5, the player receives a note from the zombies, showing zombies with a brain with a fork and a knife above it. A note from Dr. Zomboss is shown when the player accesses Day 6, and a World Key is awarded upon victory.

Dr. Zomboss writes another note on the Day 25, saying he thinks the meat in Crazy Dave's taco contained brain attempting to create suspicion between him and Penny. Suddenly the ground tears apart, and Dr. Zomboss appears in his creation: The Zombot Sphinx-inator to challenge the player to the first boss battle in the game. He scribbles yet another note in defeat before he retreats by activating a switch to dematerialize the Zombot, presumably to travel into another era of time to cause trouble. In a sense, Penny and Crazy Dave are traveling to get back to the current time, but it also feels like they are giving chase to try and stop the evil Zomboss. Along the way, he thickens the plot by making the player question if it is really the zombies that are evil or the ones whom the player had been traveling through time with all along.

Levels

Difficulty

Hence being the first world of the game, the first 25 levels are not difficult.

Brain Busters

Ancient Egypt contains all sorts of Brain Busters that have been incorporated into its level structure.

Special Delivery

Main article: Special Delivery

Special Delivery is a conveyor-belt level for Ancient Egypt. During this level, the player is forced to used all the plants that are in the conveyor-belt to pass the level. Unlike its previous levels, this one is a special (lined) level.

Save Our Seeds

Main article: Save Our Seeds

In this Brain Buster, the player is forced to survive waves of zombies while protecting the endangered Sunflowers. Otherwise, they will fail the level. In the early versions of this Brain Buster, the player can dig the endangered plant but now in the most recent versions, digging is omitted in order to prevent immediate defeat.

Locked and Loaded

Main article: Locked and Loaded

Locked and Loaded restricts the player to plants that are given within the level. They are only required to use the plants given to them in order to win the level. Even if certain plants given in the level have yet to be unlocked, the player still has the ability to use that plant within the level itself. This can serve as a demo for that plant if that ever manages to happen.

Mummy Memory (Archived content)

Main article: Mummy Memory

Mummy Memory used to be Ancient Egypt's exclusive Brain Buster. In this Brain Buster, the player was required to tap two ceramic signs to reveal the symbols. If the player managed to get the two matching symbols (e.g. two skulls), the zombie will immediately die. However, if they chose different ceramic signs with different symbol appearing (e.g. a skull and a lucky clover), the sign would flip again. As of the 6.7 update, all 3 levels of this Brain Buster are no longer available.

Last Stand

Main article: Last Stand (PvZ2)

Last Stand makes a return from the previous game. Just like its previous incarnation, the player has to plan their defense to stop hordes of zombies from barreling towards the house. However, unlike in Plants vs. Zombies, the player has to survive one flag only with extreme numbers of Zombies storming the player's lawn and most likely will attack violently with Sandstorms, as opposed to 5-10 flags. The player is provided with a great amount of sun and Plant Food as there are no zombies that will carry a Plant Food in order to aid the player from winning. Sun producing plants are not allowed in this brain buster. If the player is creative enough to formulate his or her own strategy, the player can win without the aid of Plant Food.

Egyptian Challenge Pack

Main article: Vasebreaker (PvZ2)

The Egyptian Challenge Pack is a set of Vasebreaker levels in Ancient Egypt that is available only after completing the Vasebreaker Intro. Once completed, the Butter Zombie Power Up will be unlocked.

Egyptian Challenge has three levels:

Name Plants Zombies
One at a Time Two Wall-nut2.png Two Potato Mine2.png Seven Bloomerang2.png Nine Mummy Zombie2.png Two Conehead Mummy2.png Seven groups of Camel Zombies2.png
Freeze 'Em Two Potato Mine2.png Five Cabbage-pult2.png Five Iceberg Lettuce2.png Three Repeater2.png Four Mummy Zombie2.png Two Conehead Mummy2.png One Buckethead Mummy2.png Seven Explorer Zombie2.png
Block and Spike Four Wall-nut2.png One Potato Mine2.png Five Repeater2.png Four Spikerock2.png Four Mummy Zombie2.png Three Conehead Mummy2.png Two Buckethead Mummy2.png, Six Pharaoh Zombie2.png

Pyramid of Doom

Main article: Pyramid of Doom

The Pyramid of Doom is the Endless Zone of Ancient Egypt. The player can unlock the Endless Zone after beating the twelfth day of this world. The player can practice and hone their skills in surviving level after level of endless zombies. As the player progresses throughout the higher levels, up to 80% of the lawn will be occupied with tombstones, making it very difficult for the player to put plants on the lawn. Additionally, the zombies will continue to get more dense and challenging as the Endless Zone progresses, meaning the player could face high concentrations of Gargantuars in higher levels.

Zombot Sphinx-inator

Main article: Zombot Sphinx-inator

The Zombot Sphinx-inator is Ancient Egypt's boss in both boss levels in Ancient Egypt, and possibly the first boss level in Modern Day. It can summon any Ancient Egypt zombie except Ra Zombie, Flag Mummy Zombie, Egypt Rally Zombie and Camel Zombies. It also has a charge attack that kills any plant and zombie in two adjacent rows, but can be stopped with plants that have been given Plant Food. Finally, it has a missile attack which kills any plant in the tile it targets (unless it is currently using its Plant Food power up) and summons two tombstones (or four in Ancient Egypt - Day 35). The player is given its plants through a conveyor-belt.
