    Yeah it's quite repetitive. but it's fun.

    I'm at the first time you encounter the zombie/dolphin. I stopped there, can't really get into playing this game for too long, it gets very repetitive after a while

    Plant sun flower, wait for next 50 SP, plant another sun flower, wait for next 50 SP, plant sun flower, zombies are there, plant pea shooter in zombie lane, plant another sun flower, plant pea shooter in front of next zombie...

    It's obvious that some plants are much more useful than others. The Doom shroom for example, that's a bitch. Just combine it with the ice shroom, these dancer stands 0 chance. Totally beat the crap out of them, just use it when the first rush wave shows up. Even the zombies behind gets frozen, it was hilarious. I think I doomed 15 or so with the doom shroom.

    At least these ****s only work night time.

    Also, I never lost so far, only some lawnmowers.
    The game is easy and challenging at the same time.

    yeah miners get on my nerves

    right now im just planting sunflowers, or mushrooms at night, then when a badguy appears i put a chomper thing infront of him until i have all of my power up, then its split pea shooters with fire logs infront of them and some ice shooters infront of them so it goes
    [p][f][c] then fill any gaps to the right with spikes or whatever else i have left

    Ok, I tried the demo now and it's quite fun, but kinda easy so far.

    I'm finding the last few mini-games harder than the main adventure mode.
    Damned pogosticks on the roof, etc.
    Also unless I'm doing it wrong it's taking ages to generate enough cash to buy everything.

    the rounds are all too short for me to ever get more than two or three plants upgraded with the twin sunflower addon :/

    I haven't bought the twin sun flowers upgrade yet, but how much they cost SP in-game?

    I'm on level 40-something and have done all the mini-games available to me so far and have maybe 16,000. I'm saving for that ninth slot, but I wonder if that's the way to go?

    150, on top of the 50 for each sunflower and it has an annoyingly long ass recharge time, i was pretty disappointed in it, and the cattail which is the only other upgrade ive bought in the shop so far (which is more expensive than a cactus shooter, and can only be used on water, thus wasting a slot if there are balloon zombies as you have to kill them on land too)

    Survival mode is the only place I've had time to upgrade the sunflowers/weapons.
    Cattails are massively overpowered & cover all lanes, a block of 6/8 is a sight to behold.

    Hal - when you complete Adventure mode & start over, Crazy Dave chooses your first 3 slots for you & he's, well, crazy... you're lucky if one of them is one you'd pick yourself
    so even with 9 you only get 6. I'd like 10 but $80,000 is a long way off.

    BTW, my suggestion if you need more money is put some Marigolds in Pumpkins behind Tall-nuts.

    I just finished the main game and I'm on to playing all the other modes. The zen Garden seems less than profitable... but non of my plants are all that big.

    I wont be going for the 9th slot... at least not right away. Cat tails are sweet! if you can afford them.

    Another money-making suggestion: once you unlock the Last Stand mini-game, go nuts with Marigolds in that stage. I make an easy $2000 each round. Just be sure you delay the zombies somehow (Tall-Nuts, Frozen Peas, et al.). For great success, unlock and use Golden Magnets. You can literally sit back and watch the money roll in.

    Mini game Mode: Last Stand (Game on the bottom last square to your left)
    I have been playing this one for 2 hours and I just cant beat it!

    Edit: Moments later I beat it :)

    I'm sure you make more money quicker doing the mini-games & puzzle modes than the main game. Whack-a-zombie is good for 1-2K a pop.
    Just picked up the last of the plants,

    Have been persevering with the zen garden, give the snail some chocolate & it'll collect the money for at least 30 mins without falling asleep - netting around 2-3K

    Nice garden, Kal. You're a bit ahead of me, it seems!
