This level is extremely difficult to pass without specific strategies and leveled up plants. An addition of a non-Brain Busters objective, absence of lawn mowers, and zombies present form the difficulty of the level. To begin, the player only receives 1600 sun, which is not a lot to defeat zombies such as Gargantuar Pirates or Barrelhead Zombies. In addition, the player cannot lose more than 1 plant, meaning some plants like Blover or other instant use plants can only be used once. This also means the player cannot dig up more than one plant for more sun to use during the level. The first Gargantuar Pirate can be troublesome, since it cannot bounced into the water with Spring Bean. However, the player is supplied with some Plant Food, so use it to good use.
- 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.

- Set up the plants like this: Laser Beans in the back, 1 Spring Bean in any of the lanes on column 2, Chard Guards on column 5, and Aloes on column 4. The jist is to whittle down the hoard, while also progressing until the final wave, where you can use the Spring Bean and Blover combo to get rid of every zombie. However, be careful.
- The biggest threat to this strategy is surprisingly the Pirate Captain Zombie. If he steals a plant, restart. You will not win. To avoid this, use your Plant Food on Chard Guards when they're about to be stolen. However, keep at least one Plant Food for last wave.
- Shadow-shroom is only optional. In my run, I had a spare Plant Food left so I used Plant Food on it last wave in case some other zombies didn't get blown away.
