    I have only played the table once so far and I almost defeated the wizard mode on my first attempt. I'll go back to it over the weekend.

    Right now, I'm just focusing on playing all of the tables (6 more to go) at least once and try to at least grab one of the two trophies for each table.

    I think there is a bug when trying to activate the specials (Jalapeno's and cherry bombs) on this table. The specials located in the lower left corner of the table has the following statement above it: "When the light flashes, launch activates the first plant." The light beneath the first plant typically flashes when zombies are on the table. However, when you hit the launch buttton (x) while the light is flasshing, it frequently does NOT activate the Jalapeno or cherry bomb. Is this a bug or am I just doing it wrong?

    In regards to advancing the bonus multiplier, it might be bumper hits or as a random jack-in-the-box reward.

    I haven't seen Hypno in a while. He may have taken a break or something. I know he wanted to get on the ZP2 though.

    Well, I don't know what to say about this table. Beat Dr.Zombo or whatever his name is second try (failed on him once, loaded the mode back up and beat him...if you lose to him you don't have to beat any main missions again ) and that's that, really XD scored 555 million I think. It was cool, but in my opinion it's too easy to start up MAIL multiball. I've only started up Disco multiball once, don't even know how I did it (I think you add backup dancers on some ramp/lane or something).

    This game was way too easy, I also scored over 400 million and went to first on the High Score list without knowing what I was doing, I probably won't play this table again for awhile and I was just hoping that the game was over after each ball drained.

    This problem could easily be solved on all Zen tables by just making an Easy, Normal and Hard skill level selection and have 3 different High Score lists. All Zen would need to do is to make the flippers a little further apart and make the outlane easier for the ball to drain for each skill level, this could all easily be done in their editor. I don't really want to play a pinball game for over an hour, it just seems silly to an old man like me.

    Zen2 is still the best video Pinball out there, the tables are beautiful and I love the Marvel tables. I am a huge fan of Zen's quality work, these guys go the extra mile and they have taken video pinball to the next level and have done it with class.

    Pretty much anything that you can contribute, Im doing my own recon' on the Table but it always helps to get other peoples experiences etc. If you have time just send me a PM about anything you think needs to be added to the Guide.

    I got to the Wizard Mode yesterday but failed it, that far Left Shot is very annoying esspecially when you have Zombies approaching.
    I got to wizard mode yesterday and failed to. I didn't switch the ball from fire to ice in time and a frickin' zombie got by me.

I can talk about collecting sun, choosing seeds, how to activate and use the different seed types, missions, multiballs, extra balls, kicbacks, ball saves, etc.

    I think that the original PvZ game was geared towards a younger audience and the table probably was too. I'm not exactly a pinball wizard, but I did get about three extra balls and about 84 million in my first and only game so far. That's pretty good for me. So yeah, it's definitely easy but still a good table. My kids love it.

    too easy

    The game was too easy.

    I have played 1 time.
    I did not read the instructions on what to do.
    I earned all 5 extra-balls possible.
    I played for over an hour and logged about 500 million which put me in first place.
    I beat the wizard mode; Zomboss.

    If Zen is going to make their games so easy they need to add more depth. More waves of zombies. Harder zombies. Make the different balls actually matter, as well as actually needing seed packets to keep the hordes of zombies at bay. I quickly realized the seed packets are a waste of time, and changing the ball only matters for the zomboss to defeat the fireball or iceball. I don't even know what the "nut" balls are for. That is bad because it should be obvious what the advantage is to have them because it makes a difference in the game ... like you need it to win or get a whole lot more points.

    I got bored and drained balls on purpose.

    LOVED the theme though! Loved they kept all the original sound effects and didn't supplant them or anything. It was a great port of Plants vs. Zombies. But like Plants vs. Zombies, it's meant for kids. It's not challenging. I had maxed out my sun and bought everything by the time I reached the zomboss. I was expecting to actually need to buy things like plants or kickbacks to help me stop the onslaughts, but nope, kickbacks are too easily activated as well as ball save.

    Oh and I did all the above WITHOUT using magna-save. Because I didn't read the directions or study the table too carefully, I didn't notice the table had it.

    I guess I need to alter my play on ZP and set time limits and start continuing my games where I left off. I like pinball because it is challenging and frustating. It's like golf in that way. Balls SHOULD drain easily. I don't want to be playing for hours, but I can see how young kids playing the game get frustrated and whine because they don't feel they are "good" so the solution is to make it impossible to lose. Tomorrow's generation is going to be a coddled one...

    Anyone figure out how to advance the bonus multiplier? Is it the RIP targets and hitting the little dude in the sun hole? And I didn't realize there was a magna save on this table. I activated it by accident when I set off a cherry bomb.
