Tips to Remember!
   - Play Frostbite Caves Quick Walkthrough and Strategy Guide first before this guide!

Red Stinger
   - Performance is based from it's location: Similar to a Repeater when close to home (cheaper), and becomes a weaker version of a Wall when further away from it. When placed on the center, it's just like a Peashooter with extra defense.
Lava Guava
   - Erupts when zombies are too near, dealing massive damages. Left over lava pools will also burn zombies when stepped on. Effective vs Excavator Zombies.
A.K.E.E
   - Lobs projectiles that bounce from zombie to zombie, effective vs Excavator Zombies.
Endurian
   - Defensive plants that deal damage to zombies attacking it.
______________________________

IMPORTANT REMINDERS!
   - Snapdragons: After placing 2 Sunflowers, place the first 2 Snapdragons on the 2nd and 4th row first, next on 3rd, then 1st and 5th rows last. If the formation below requires 2 columns of Snapdragons, start by placing 4 of them on the the 2nd and 4th row, and so on.
   - Note: Use Wall-Nuts or Tall-Nuts if needed to defend your Snapdragons.

Gold Tiles
   - Place a plant here to get bonus Suns overtime. If possible, place your first few plants here to speed up your progress. Note: Using a Shovel and placing another plant won't work hehe, best use plants with 0 Sun requirement.

   - You can instantly repair defensive plants like Wall-Nuts and Talls-Nuts by planting the same plant on top of them.
   - You can use Plant Food on any seed packet to instantly refresh their cool down.
   - You can manually launch one mower by tapping and holding!
   - After you complete the formation below, you may slowly replace your Sun producing plants with offensive plants.
   - If you are having difficulty, you may use Power Ups or buy PFs if you like.

How to Plant Guide:
   - | Sunflower | Peashooter | Peashooter | Wall |
   - This means: Plant Sunflowers in the 1st column from the left, Peashooters in the 2nd and 3rd columns, then Wall-Nuts in the 4th column.
