Neon Mixtape Tour (摇滚年代; pinyin: Yáogǔn Niándài, translation: Rock Ages) is the 11th world released in the Chinese version of Plants vs. Zombies 2. It was released on September 20, 2016 on iOS devices, and on September 23 on Android.
This world takes place in the 1980s, when there were a lot of bands representing a variety of musical genres, such as pop, punk, or metal. Jams, the environment modifier of this world, represent that variety through gameplay (more info below). Crazy Dave also claims to remember this period from when he was a kid.
Gel your hair and time travel back to 1980 and join the big rock dance party. Many classical pop songs and arcade games incoming, are you ready for it?
In Chinese: 准备好发胶跃回1980年，参加僵尸们的盛大摇滚舞会。经典的流行音乐和街机游戏来袭，你准备好了吗？
- Main article: Jam
Jams are the main gimmick of Neon Mixtape Tour that change the music of the gameplay at any time. Differently from other worlds, the music will make the zombies move faster or slower, and also make special zombies, who are Punk Zombie, Glitter Zombie, MC Zom-B, Breakdancer Zombie, Arcade Zombie's arcade machine, and Hair Metal Gargantuar, exhibit their special ability. They will only exhibit their special ability if their preferred music or jam is playing. There are six jams in total.
- The punk jam makes its first appearance on Day 1, which makes Punk Zombie mosh the plants back a free space, and also makes zombies go two times faster. When it starts to play, there will be flame trails on the top and the bottom of the screen. The top flame trail bursts every few beats, and the bottom bursts when the jam starts.
- The pop jam makes its first appearance on Day 1, which makes Glitter Zombie produce a rainbow trail that protects and removes all negative effects for all zombies within it (except other Glitter Zombies). This jam allows her to simply roll on and crush plants with her skates, and also makes zombies go two times slower. When it starts to play, there will be neon lasers and a disco ball which makes appears a lot of small lights on the lawn.
- The rap jam makes its first appearance on Day 8, which makes MC Zom-B spin his microphone to destroy all non-defensive plants around it instantly in a 3x3 area, similar to Phat Beet. The rap jam also enables Breakdancer Zombie to push zombies forward. The rap jam also does not make zombies go faster or slower. When it starts to play, there will be lights and a TV with Dr. Zomboss' green face with two big speaker between the TV.
- The metal jam makes its first appearance on Day 13, which makes Hair Metal Gargantuar smash to create a sonic blast that can instantly destroy a non-defensive plant at the rightmost lane from a distance, and also makes zombies go two times faster. When it starts to play, there will be fireworks and lights on the top and bottom of the lawn.
- The 8-bit jam makes its first appearance on Day 16, which makes the arcade machines that the Arcade Zombie pushes start producing basic variants of zombies, also known as 8-Bit Zombies (which comes in Basic, Conehead, and Buckethead variations). It does not make zombies move faster or slower. When it starts to play, there will be pink fog at the top and the bottom of the screen and the tiles on the ground will play a lot of various light movements, as if the lawn was a dance floor.
- The ballad jam makes its first appearance on Day 21. It will tranquilize all plants currently on the lawn, but will not tranquilize plants that are planted after the jam plays and Phat Beet. The jam will last for approximately 8 seconds for each Boombox Zombie. The jam will continue on if there is still a Boombox Zombie playing even after one is defeated. The power ballad jam overrides all types of jams that are currently playing. The lawn will return to normal as if the boombox is actually playing the song. It makes zombies move two times slower.
