Buying the Last Stand Game Pack

Last Stand is a Puzzle Mode series exclusive to the iOS and Android versions of Plants vs. Zombies. It is similar to the mini-game of the same name, but with five levels and an Endless version. However, the player is able to sell plants for sun, and, for the five finite levels, cannot choose their own seed packets. However, in Endless Mode, the player can choose their own seed packets. In order to play it, the player must purchase the Last Stand game pack, which costs $100,000 in Crazy Dave's Twiddydinkies. Only Last Stand: Day can be played without purchasing the Last Stand game pack.

As for the player's sun, they get 3000 for Day and Night, 4000 for Pool and Fog, and 5000 for Roof and Endless (which takes place at the Pool). After each wave, the player earns 10% of their starting sun back. In Endless, the zombies may drop sun too.

Plants given

As for the player's plants, they get:

Selling plants

Between each wave, the player can dig up plants and claim back their cost in sun. This is a feature that isn't found in any other game mode. However, there are some limitations:

  • If the plant is a mushroom which is awake, and the level is Last Stand Endless, the player does not get back the cost of the Coffee Bean if they sell the plant.

Example of being unable to sell a damaged plant

  • If the plant is an upgrade (except a Cattail with a Pumpkin around it), the player only gets back the sun from the upgrade (e.g. Winter Melon that is dug up between waves only returns 200 sun, not 500).
  • If a defensive plant is damaged (and by damaged it means that it is a degradable plant that has degraded; a Tall-nut that has taken 47 normal damage bites is not considered damaged, but one with 48 normal damage bites is considered damaged), the player cannot claim the cost of sun back from it.


Zombies also change for Day, Night, Pool, Fog, Roof, and Endless:


Main article: Mallet

Mallets can be bought after finishing one flag in Last Stand Endless. The game gives the player five Mallets to start with and the player can buy 3 more for 3000 coins, 6 for 5000 coins, or 9 for 7000 coins.

  • Interestingly enough, the Pool level gives 1000 less sun than the mini-game counterpart.
  • Last Stand Endless is the only Puzzle Mode level where the player can choose their plants.
  • On the iPhone and Android version of Plants vs. Zombies, if the player does not plant a Plantern during the Last Stand: Fog, the seed selection screen after the first wave will also be covered in fog; if the player plants a Plantern only in the top or bottom half, the respective parts out of the Plantern's wave is also covered in fog.
    • To prevent this, you can plant two Planterns on the rightmost column, row 2 and 5, and then select "View Zombies". When you've finished with your strategy, you can sell the Planterns.
    • This does not happen on the iPad version of the game.
  • In Last Stand: Night, using the Grave Buster to remove all but one or two graves spawns three new graves after the player starts the onslaught. Removing all of the graves spawns five new graves. If the entire lawn is filled with plants, it will intercept and outright destroy the plant.
  • Last Stand Endless does not appear to have any Dancing Zombies (with Backup Dancers), Zombonis, or Pogo Zombies, unlike in Survival: Endless. Zombie Yeti, however, does not appear in both endless levels.
  • On the iPhone version of Plants vs. Zombies, no Giga-gargantuars appear in Last Stand Endless. However, they do appear in the iPad version of the game.
  • This is the only puzzle where the first level is not the same name as the Puzzle Mode.
  • Unlike Vasebreaker and I, Zombie costing 150,000 coins, Last Stand costs 100,000 coins.
    • This could be because Last Stand has five levels plus an Endless level, while the others have more.
  • Last Stand is the only Puzzle Mode game to not have the song Cerebrawl playing.
  • In the iPad version of Plants vs. Zombies, the Wall-nut on the icon looks more surprised rather than sad, but it isn't in all the other versions. Additionally, it is less degraded.
  • Last Stand returned in Plants vs. Zombies 2 in the form of a Brain Buster.
