Plants vs Zombies, how to beat Survival Endless on iPad.

I was able to beat get the Survival Endless achievement on the iPad this weekend. After a couple weeks of trying and sharing tactics with Dave, we finally figured out a way to beat it. He managed to beat it first and shared some of his winning tactics. Here are some screenshots of what it looks like to get to level 40.


This is what my screen looked like after level 40. I was definitely limping.
Key tactics that you can incorporate:
• Before level 10, you should focus on getting sun and use cat tails
• Before level 20, you should ramp up your fume shrooms and pumpkins
• Before level 30, you should have spike rocks
• After level 30, focus on using ice shrooms, pumpkins, spike rocks, and cherry bombs.

You’ll notice that I use a V formation because my outer rows always get hammered by the giant zombies. By offsetting them a couple squares, I have a little more time. you’ll also notice that I don’t fill every single square. I reserve a couple of empty squares just because it gets too expensive to replace things.

The greatest problems you will have after level 30 will be using more sun than you can produce. Doing enough damage to zombonis and the giant zombies. The fume shrooms should take care of everything else. You’ll definitely need ice shrooms and bombs.

Anyone else earn this achievement?

  1. Hi, I tried your strategy and it worded perfectly for me, I finally got the last achievement and I can have peace with this game now 😀
    Thanks a lot for sharing this!!!

  2. Your settings are good, but it will not pass 42 flags. I have settings that can beat this game and it's Endless, you will never lose if you play carefully, until you get tire. Once I got over 160 flags with my settings and after that I get bored and never play again. If you need the to know the settings, you can email me z_hero18@yahoo.com

  3. Lol, that guy says that on every site, but never actually shares any of his tips – either he's lying or is a loser that requires others to heap praise and attention on him. Either way, LAME!!!

  4. I made it to 38 flags following your guide to a T, and I died. Lol but it is a great strategy and it can be done obviously. I guess playing at 3am is not the way to win x_x”

  5. I finished 42flags, i used gatling pea in every row, my setup is just like that, but I have only 8 fume shrooms in pool with pumpinks, and I have two fume shoorms at the second lane near the house, well I still looking for the best set up for survival endless this game is cool 

  6. I have the HD version – unless my copy is broken, the sunflower is not an option. Can it still be done? I can get to 30 using the hammers as back up.
