Glitches (Archived content)

  • After the first server update, the level progress bar was unintentionally hidden under the score bar. This was fixed in the 15.1 update.
  • During the Graveyard Trick 'Grave Danger!', a gravestone can rise on a tile occupied by a plant. The plant will function normally, but Plant Food and Tacos can't be used on it until the gravestone has been destroyed.
  • Under unknown conditions, the game can softlock at the end of the stage. This can be fixed either by digging up plants or force closing the game.
  • When a player tried to donate seeds in their club, a pop-up that said 'Donation has expired' would cancel the action and temporally remove the seed request from the player's list. This glitch was fixed in the second server update.
  • When a Crossing Guard throws a road cone onto a male Browncoat Zombie's head, the male zombie has a chance to become a female.
  • Sometimes, after a battle when the lawn is full, you can still hear the plants making sounds.
