Dr. Zomboss: Aha! Project Paradox begins...NOW!
Penny: Timeline alert, User Dave!
Penny: We have arrived moments before our departure!
Penny: If my guess is correct, Dr. Zomboss will attempt to prevent your initial taco-consumption!
Penny: Our journey will cease to exist!
Crazy Dave: NOOOOOOOOOO!
Crazy Dave: ...OOOOOOOO! Sorry, I was busy screaming "No." Did you say "taco"?
Penny: We must aware, User Dave. Dr. Zomboss will surely deploy all his time-varied zombies against us!
Crazy Dave: TACOOOOOOO!
This level is one of the easiest levels in Modern Day. This level features a lot less Buckethead Zombies than the international version of this level. The hardest part of the level is when the Ancient Egypt portal appears, but even then, the player shouldn't struggle too much on this level as unlike in the international version, only one portal appears in the whole level.
In hard mode, the player has to defeat leveled-up zombies.
By Shootingstarcs Plants required:
- Sunflower Singer (for stalling)
- Electric Blueberry
- Imitater Electric Blueberry
- Chard Guard
- The remaining plants are your choice.
Note: Sunflower Singer needs to be level 4 to activate her Plant Food ability and Electric Blueberry needs to be at least level 3 to target the entire board. Firstly, put down a column of Sunflower Singers, then plant Electric Blueberries until you have at least two lines of them. In emergency situations, use Grapeshot. Hurrikales or Chard Guards are also recommended as they can push back the Pharaoh Zombie.
