    Aquatic garden aquired...
    [​IMG]
    Sold a few plants back to Crazy Dave,
    [shrooms & aquatic plants go for $10K each when grown, regular plants are 8K & marigolds 3K]
    Bought everything that was left to buy & just have the wisdom tree to grow, aside from finishing the last few mini-games & survival mode 6/10.

    The frozen melon bomb upgrade is great as are the extra tough spike thingers.
    Still haven't tried out the Cob cannons though.

    This game is great! Each level just gets crazier with the plant and zombie types!

    Pop Cap sure knows how to make fun and addictive games!

    Survival [hard] is entertaining...
    went from this, where i was feeling a bit cocky frankly
    [​IMG]

    to this, for a while i thought i wasn't going to make it... damned miner zombies

    Upgrading is a double-edged sword, you can leave yourself without the building blocks if your defences are breached, those upgraded spikes are alarmingly good. recommended.

    Really not looking forward to the fog & roof levels :D

    also, still getting raped on the Bobsled mini-game.
    Jalapenos & Squashes 4tw but not enough & on time as yet :(

    i have good news & bad. the good news is the cob-cannon is wonderful,
    the bad news is...
    [​IMG]

    what does the tree of wizdom actually do for you?

    oh and by the way, i got through that bobsled mini game through excessive use of cattails (yeah ive come around to them a lot), and i recommend ALWAYS having a fire in front of your pea shooters because it doubles each bullets damage. repeaters shooting through flames are insnaely powerfull

    The tree does nothing but there's a steam achievement for growing it to 100 feet. Mine's currently @ 62 ft :eek:

    I still haven't got the bobsled mini-game, that & the end boss fight remain.

    Been bashing away at Survival mode [hard], 'Night' took a few tries, the regenerating graves in any free space really don't help but 'Pool' was alarmingly easy, got to check out the cob-cannons & everything :D

    In case anyone's wondering, I lost the missing back row plants from miners.
    Using the garlic bulbs to funnel the zombies into the middle lanes was a strategy I read about on the PvsZ Steam forum & thought I'd try.
    Works pretty good although pole-vaulters & balloon zombies aren't affected.
    The tricked out spikes however are worth their weight in gold. Two in a row & most zombies are dead or dying,
    they take out all vehicles [bar maybe the bobsled, haven't tried] & really slow down the Gargantuars :D

    Finally got bobsled so all mini-games done.
    Sold a few plants for the 100ft wisdom tree thing.
    Cannot for the life of me do vasebreaker or izombie endless to the required levels [15 & 10]
    Survival fog [hard] & roof [hard] to do to unlock pool endless.

    How the phuck did you do that?
    Still at 6 & that was blind luck.
    Vasebreaker is worse.
    Been getting 9 flags on survival pool fog [hard] all night.
    Roof [hard] was so easy too... :eek:

    Grinds teeth.

    This game is like crack man; instant buy.
    Was up all night playing it.

    Definitely PopCaps best.

    I'm just trying to demolish the Adventure mode then I'll check out all the other stuff.
    It's starting to get hairy though... I think I need to buy the 8 slot.

    I thought buying the 8 slot was mandatory. I mean, you can avoid it, but why would you do that?

    Probably while reading those hilarious almanac entries.
