- For the international version of the level, see Dark Ages - Night 1.
- For the level before the v1.8 update, see Dark Ages - Night 1 (Chinese version: pre-1.8).
In normal mode, the player has to beat the zombies at level 1.
Being the first level of Dark Ages, the player gets to experience not having sun fall from the sky every now and then. As a result, cheap sun-producing plants and cheap attacking plants should be used. The zombies are not very threatening by themselves, the tombstones can be quite a nuisance however.
- 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.
|Waves||Non-dynamic zombies||Ambush zombies||Note(s)|
|3||None||Carries 1x Plant Food.|
|6||None||Carries 1x Plant Food.|
|8||1 3 5||None||Final wave.|
In hard mode, the player has to defeat leveled-up zombies.
With leveled-up zombies, strong attacking plants or leveled up plants is a must. Other than that, it can be beated in a similar fashion to normal mode.
- Do as what you did in normal mode, but with leveled up zombies.
