<< Locations >>

Ancient Egypt is the first world in Plants vs. Zombies 2. The player's real journey starts here and the world itself is home to a variety of mummy zombies. There are 35 levels in this world, 7 plants to be obtained and 15 zombies to fight against.

Ancient Egypt does not have a game description on when the event took place in the timeline, unlike the other ten worlds. It is assumed that it is approximately between 3100 BC to 332 BC. However, when Penny and Crazy Dave arrived, Penny said that Crazy Dave should wait 4500 years for his taco, which he ate in 2009, therefore, they have arrived around 2491 BC, well into the start of the Fifth Dynasty of Egypt (2494 to 2345 BC).

In this world, the lawn functions exactly as it normally would on a daytime level from the original Plants vs. Zombies. The main difference here is that tombstones spawn in at the start of the levels (just like night levels from Plants vs. Zombies, except that it is considered daytime with sun dropping from the sky).

Order of events

After Day 4 of the tutorial, the player meets Crazy Dave along with Penny and "accidentally" travels to Ancient Egypt. After beating Day 1, the player unlocks the Map of Space-Time-Ness. In Day 2, the player unlocks the Cabbage-pult and gets introduced to using Plant Food. The player unlocks the Bloomerang after Day 3. When the player beats Day 4, the player unlocks the Power Ups (which is explained in Day 5 along with the ability to play Piñata Party levels).

After Day 7, the player receives a note from the zombies, showing zombies with a brain with a fork and a knife above it. A note from Dr. Zomboss is shown when the player accesses Day 8, and a World Key is awarded upon victory.

Dr. Zomboss writes another note on the Day 25, saying he thinks the meat in Crazy Dave's taco contained brain attempting to create suspicion between him and Penny. Suddenly the ground tears apart, and Dr. Zomboss appears in his creation: The Zombot Sphinx-inator to challenge the player to the first boss battle in the game. He scribbles yet another note in defeat before he retreats: by activating a switch to dematerialize presumably to travel into another era of time to cause trouble. In a sense, Penny and Crazy Dave are traveling to get back to the current time, but it also feels like they are giving chase to try and stop the evil doctor. Along the way, he will thicken the plot by making the player question if it is really the zombies that are evil or the ones who he or she had been traveling through time with all along.

Levels

Difficulty

Hence being the first world of the game, the first 25 levels are not difficult, despite being somewhat easy. However, due to a recent update with new hard days added, Ancient Egypt is now more difficult, with nine hard days, 15, 20, 22, 23, 25, 26, 30, 31, and 33. There are also four very hard days, 27, 28, 29, and 35. There are also two extremely hard days, which are days 32 and 34. Days 8, 11, 12, 17, 18, 19, and 24 can be hard for some new players, but not too hard.

Brain Busters

Ancient Egypt contains all sorts of Brain Busters that have been incorporated into its level structure.

Special Delivery

Main article: Special Delivery

Special Delivery is an exclusive conveyor-belt level for Ancient Egypt. During this level, the player is forced to used all the plants that are in the conveyor-belt to pass the level. Like its previous levels, this one is just a standard level.

Save Our Seeds

Main article: Save Our Seeds

In this Brain Buster, the player is forced to survive waves of zombies while protecting the endangered Sunflowers. Otherwise, they will fail the level. In the early versions of this Brain Buster, the player can dig the endangered plant but now in the most recent versions, digging is omitted in order to prevent immediate defeat.

Locked and Loaded

Main article: Locked and Loaded

Locked and Loaded restricts the player to plants that are given within the level. They are only required to use the plants given to them in order to win the level. Even if certain plants given in the level have yet to be unlocked, the player still has the ability to use that plant within the level itself. This can serve as a demo for that plant if that ever manages to happen.

Mummy Memory

Main article: Mummy Memory

Mummy Memory is Ancient Egypt's exclusive Brain Buster. In this Brain Buster, the player will tap two ceramic signs to reveal the symbols. If the player manages to get the two matching symbols (e.g. two skulls), the zombie will immediately die. However, if they pick different ceramic signs with different symbol appearing (e.g. a skull and a lucky clover), the sign will flip again.

Last Stand

Main article: Last Stand (PvZ2)

Last Stand makes a return from the previous game. Just like its previous incarnation, the player has to plan their defense to stop hordes of zombies from barreling towards the house. However, unlike in Plants vs. Zombies, the player has to survive one flag only with extreme numbers of Zombies storming the player's lawn and most likely will attack violently with Sandstorms, as opposed to 5-10 flags. The player is provided with a great amount of sun and Plant Food as there are no zombies that will carry a Plant Food in order to aid the player from winning. Sun producing plants are not allowed in this brain buster. If the player is very creative enough to formulate his or her own plan, the player can win without the aid of Plant Food.

Egyptian Challenge Pack

Main article: Vasebreaker (PvZ2)

The Egyptian Challenge Pack is a set of Vasebreaker levels in Ancient Egypt that is available only after completing the Vasebreaker Intro. Once completed, the Butter Zombie Power Up will be unlocked.

Egyptian Challenge has three levels:

Name Plants Zombies
One at a Time Two Wall-nut2 Two Potato Mine2 Seven Bloomerang2 Ten Mummy Zombie2 Two Conehead Mummy2 Seven groups of Camel Zombies2
Freeze 'Em Two Potato Mine2 Five Cabbage-pult2 Five Iceberg Lettuce2 Three Repeater2 Four Mummy Zombie2 Two Conehead Mummy2 One Buckethead Mummy2 Seven Explorer Zombie2
Block and Spike Four Wall-nut2 One Potato Mine2 Five Repeater2 Four Spikerock2 Four Mummy Zombie2 Three Conehead Mummy2 Two Buckethead Mummy2, Six Pharaoh Zombie2

Pyramid of Doom

Main article: Pyramid of Doom

The Pyramid of Doom is the Endless Zone of Ancient Egypt. The player can unlock the Endless Zone after beating the twelfth day of this world. The player can practice and hone their skills in surviving level after level of endless zombies. As the player progresses throughout the higher levels, up to 80% of the lawn will be occupied with tombstones, making it very difficult for the player to put plants on the lawn. Additionally, the zombies will continue to get more dense and challenging as the Endless Zone progresses, meaning the player could face high concentrations of Gargantuars in higher levels.

Zombot Sphinx-inator

Main article: Zombot Sphinx-inator

The Zombot Sphinx-inator is Ancient Egypt's boss in both boss levels in Ancient Egypt. It can summon any Ancient Egypt zombie except Ra Zombie, Flag Mummy, Egypt Rally Zombie and Camel Zombies. It also has a charge attack that kills any plant and zombie in two adjacent rows, but can be stopped with plants that have been given Plant Food. Finally, it has a missile attack which kills any plant in the tile it targets (unless it is currently using its Plant Food powerup) and summons two tombstones (or four in Ancient Egypt - Day 35). The player is given its plants through a conveyor-belt.

Trivia

  • The lawn is filled with Ra Zombie and Tomb Raiser Zombie (Anubis) statues.
  • It is the world with the most zombies, 15, after a recent update.
  • On the player's house, there are some hieroglyphics representing a Sunflower producing a sun, a zombie walking, a Potato Mine, a Wall-nut, a lawn mower, a zombie's head, and a Potion Bottle.
  • Ancient Egypt, Pirate Seas, Wild West, and Modern Day are the only worlds that did not change their positions on the world map after 5.3.1 update.
  • All Ancient Egypt plants reappear in Plants vs Zombies Heroes.
  • Ancient Egypt and Modern Day are the first worlds to get more levels on the 5.8.1 update.
