Difficulty

The difficulty arises in this level with the given plants. Fume-shroom is the main offensive plant, and both Puff-shroom and Potato Mine are also given. However, zombies like Knight Zombie can be hard to deal with. Jester Zombie is present in this level, and can be troubling if the player uses Puff-shroom. So, the player is recommended to dig up the Puff-shroom, so that it will not able to deflect any projectiles from Puff-shrooms. Use Potato Mines and Grave Busters wisely, as they can make the level easier if used properly. The Necromancy ambushes can cause great difficulty if not treated. Also, the greatest threat is the Dark Ages Gargantuar. Using only Fume-shroom to defeat it will be tricky. Using Potato Mine will aid, but might not fully defeat it. Luckily, there is a sufficient amount of Plant Food given. Saving Plant Food on Fume-shrooms for the Dark Ages Gargantuars should be in order.

Waves

The small number next to the zombie icon means that zombie will always appear in that lane, with 1 being the topmost lane and 5 being the bottommost one.

Strategies

Before Dark Ages Gargantuar appears

  • Immediately remove the graves near your house by using Grave Buster, starting with the tombstone that has Plant Food.
  • Initially place Fume-shroom in lanes with two tombstones, Puff-shroom in lanes with one tombstone, and Wall-nut in lanes that are not otherwise defended yet. Eventually, you should work toward having at least three full columns of Fume-shrooms.
  • Place Puff-shrooms right behind your Wall-nuts. Pay attention to your Puff-shrooms, because they disappear after a short while. Remove them when you see Jester Zombies, because these zombies will deflect their projectiles and basically use them to your disadvantage..
  • As the level progresses, many more tombstones will spawn and you will need to keep using Grave Busters.

When Dark Ages Gargantuar appears with six Jester Zombies

  • When a Gargantuar appears, use Plant Food on your Fume-shrooms quickly. If done too early, the Gargantuar may not receive all of the damage. After you have done this, the Gargantuar will throw its Imp. If possible, use Plant Food on another Fume-shroom to kill the Imp and the Gargantuar together.
  • Alternatively, if you have time after killing the Jester Zombies, plant a Potato Mine ahead of the Gargantuar and stall it with a Puff-Shroom so the mine has time to activate, then use Plant Food once the Gargantuar throws its Imp.
  • When about six Jester Zombies appear, do not plant any Puff-shrooms, even if you do not have Puff-shrooms on your lawn. Furthermore, do not give them Plant Food, even if they are about to disappear, as the Jesters may reflect the spores back.
  • It is recommended to put Plant Food on Wall-nuts and Fume-shrooms, because you want to prevent dangerous zombies (Jester Zombies, Knight Zombies, and Dark Ages Gargantuars) from destroying your Fume-shrooms.
  • Avoid placing Puff-shrooms in the first and second lanes, as you risk having them being eaten very quickly. Instead, place them immediately in front of your Wall-Nuts when Knight Zombie or Buckethead Zombie appears, to add some damage and stall them for a few seconds.

Final wave

  • Plant a Potato Mine or two at least three tiles in front of the Gargantuar(s), then finish the level by giving a Fume-shroom Plant Food after the Potato Mine explodes the Gargantuar.
