Dark Stormy Night is one of the 17 hidden mini-games that can only be accessed using the Cheat Engine. This mini-game is like Level 4-10 of Adventure Mode, where it is dark and lightning flashes. The only differences from the mini-game and Level 4-10 are the plants available and zombies encountered.

It had returned as a Brain Buster of Lost City in Plants vs. Zombies 2 (Chinese version). The plants in these levels were pre-selected. It was first played in Day 8.

In this level, you will get Peashooters, Lily Pads, Puff-shrooms, Cacti and Cherry Bombs which come from a conveyor belt. Just use a normal set-up on how you will position your plants, but here are some tips:

  • Plant your Cacti on the first column.
  • Plant your Peashooters on the second and the third columns.
  • Use Puff-shrooms only for early defense. Later on you will have Peashooters.
  • Try not to waste Cherry Bombs, use only for emergency.
  • You must never stop planting the Lily Pads given until the fifth row for Dolphin Rider Zombies.

  • When the screen flashes and the player pauses the game, the flash will last a little bit longer, thus giving the player a slight advantage.
  • Even when the player cheats to have Planterns, the screen is still dark.
    • This is because the game is not programmed for Planterns to work in the mini-game.
  • Lily Pad and Cactus are the only plants that are both on this mini-game and on Level 4-10.
  • It and Bungee Blitz are the only mini-games in Limbo Page that have their own icons.
  • Zombie Yeti will never show up in this level, despite Zombie Yeti appearing in Level 4-10, the level's adventure mode counterpart.
  • It and its Adventure Mode counterpart are the only levels to have no background music during gameplay.
  • It, its Adventure Mode counterpart, and It's Raining Seeds are the only levels to have rain in them.
    • All of these levels take place in a fog setting.
  • The Zombies in this level are the same as in Level 4-4.
