Crazy Dave: Those plants look hungry.
Crazy Dave: If only there was something that you could feed them...
(Penny appears)

Penny: It's an essential part of a complete breakfast.

(if the Peashooter gets eaten)
Crazy Dave: let your plant get eaten! Try again!

Crazy Dave: It's the TRAVEL LOG!
Crazy Dave: What's that, Travel Log? You provide guidance, progress and rewards?

Crazy Dave: Thanks, Travel Log! Whatever you say!

This level is very similar to Day 1, but it comes with the added threat of the Buckethead Mummy. While this causes the difficulty to slightly increase, Plant Food is introduced in this level and shows off an easy way to defeat the Buckethead Mummy if placed on a Peashooter. The player has many opportunities to use Plant Food, so that tough zombies can be dealt with.


The small number next to the zombie icon means that zombie will always appear in that lane, with 1 being the topmost lane and 5 being the bottommost one.

  • Strategies from Ancient Egypt - Day 1 are applicable here.
  • Potato Mines can wipe out Buckethead Mummies. The Plant Food effect on a Peashooter is also strong enough to nearly kill a Buckethead Mummy.
    • With perseverance, it is possible to knock out a Buckethead with three or four Peashooters aided by a Wall-nut.
    • There are four Plant Foods scattered across the level and only two Buckethead Mummies.
    • Be sure to use Potato Mine to take out the first one or two zombies (unless they are on the same lane a Peashooter is on).
    • Remember to use Plant Food. It will be useful in this level, and also extremely useful in every single level from now on. Using it on Peashooter is the best use, but it's fine to use it on any other plant, too.
  • Potato Mine can be used on the early Buckethead Mummy if you want to save Plant Food.
  • Potato Mine has a good Plant Food effect, and can easily clear out large waves of zombies if the mines land in good spots. Consider using Plant Food on Potato Mine to clear out zombies.

Ancient Egypt - Day 2


  • This is the first level in the game that gives the player Plant Food.
    • Because the Vasebreaker mini-game is acquired before the start of this level, however, the player can use Plant Food in Vasebreaker Intro before it is formally introduced.
