Day 5 is one of the easiest levels in Lost City. The protection Wall-nuts offer and the high amount of damage dealt by A.K.E.E. and Red Stinger, along with Cherry Bombs in tight situations make are what make this level a cakewalk.
Despite being usually easy, the player can get in a tight situation if they have not dispersed offensive and defensive plants equally on the lawn.
Cherry Bombs do not appear very frequently, so the player should not rely on them too much.
During early stages, the player should stock up at least two A.K.E.E.s on each row to deal with incoming Excavator Zombies. Keep in mind that the only ways to kill this zombie are A.K.E.E. and Cherry Bomb (which is rare).
