The Limbo Page

The Limbo Page completed

The Limbo Page is a hidden amount of data in the PC version of Plants vs. Zombies that contains twenty mini-games (excluding Ice Level, Intro, Upsell, Zen Garden, Tree of Wisdom) along with four variations on Survival: Endless that were going to be added to the game, but were eventually canceled. They also could be "hidden" for players to find out on their own and use a hacking program to access it. It is possible to access this page via third-party memory editing programs such as Cheat Engine and changing specific data values. All mini-games (with the notable exception of Ice Level) are completely playable.

List of games[]

  • Art Challenge Wall-nut: Place Wall-nuts in the outlined spaces to create one giant Wall-nut.
  • Sunny Day: Here, most things are normal, but all sun from the sky is big, and it gives 50 sun units, instead of the normal 25.
  • Unsodded: Rows one and five cannot be planted on, but zombies still appear in those rows.
  • Big Time: Here, Sunflowers, Marigolds, and Wall-nuts are all twice their normal size, increasing their original abilities.
  • Art Challenge Sunflower: Place Starfruits, Umbrella Leaves and Wall-nuts in the outlined spaces to create a large Sunflower.
  • Air Raid: A Fog level that has a very high amount of Balloon Zombies.
  • Ice Level: An empty level created as an April Fools joke intended to have 4 frozen zombies and no plants, but had most of it's data removed and uses the day theme as a placeholder.[1]
  • High Gravity: On this Roof level, very high gravity causes projectiles to only hit the tile in front of it. Balloon Zombie's balloon pops after going a few tiles. Catapult plants hit at a slightly farther range.
  • Grave Danger: Zombies only surface from graves during this mini-game, and more graves appear frequently.
  • Can You Dig It?: The lawn is full of Wall-nuts and the only plant the player can plant are Peashooters. The Wall-nuts need to be dug up in order to plant the Peashooters.
  • Dark Stormy Night: Similar to Level 4-10, but with different plants and zombies.
  • Bungee Blitz: The same as Level 5-5 in Adventure Mode.
  • Intro: The beginning sequence of the game, then puts the player into Adventure Mode instantly.
  • Survival: Day through Roof Endless (Except Pool): The same as Survival: Endless, but inside the Day, Night, Fog, and Roof areas, respectively. There is no pool variant due to Survival: Endless already taking place in the pool.
  • Upsell: Crazy Dave convinces the player to upgrade to the full version of Plants vs. Zombies. This is a leftover from the trial version.
  • Squirrel: The player is to find seven squirrels by digging up Wall-nuts, one of which has a zombie in it. The minigame is covered up by Intro, so it's inaccessible without further hacking.

Trivia[]

  • Since the other game modes are shown on it and when another tab is clicked on it shows the three other pages, the Limbo Page may be a preliminary setup for the title page. However, the one that is known is now used.
  • Squirrel is the only unused mini-game that cannot be played normally on the Limbo Page.
  • The player must unlock mini-games on Level 3-2 before they can use the Limbo Page. If they have not reached that point in Adventure Mode, then the Limbo Page is inaccessible. This can be used to unlock Survival Mode and Puzzle Mode prematurely.
