Here is a quick guide to each level (or day) in Plants vs. Zombies 2: Ancient Egypt in the game Plants Vs. Zombies 2: It’s About Time game.  This zone or world introduces an oldie, but a goodie mechanic.  Ancient Egypt comes with many many graves.  The graves are obsticles that prevent you from planting on the spot, plus spawn zombies at certain time intervals.  You can get rid of the graves by damaging them with your plants, or by using the Grave Buster plant against them to have it eat away the grave, removing it from the playing field.

Day by Day Guide

Sunflower: Plant them as soon as you can.  Typically cover the entire first column with them at minimum.
Wall-Nut: Used as a shield.  Will leave zombies munching on him for a long time, giving your other plants time to chip away at the zombie heads.
Potato Mine: Takes some time to arm, but when it does, will 1-shot all non-giant and non-boss zombies when they walk over it.
Cabbage-Pult: Lobs cabbages over obstacles to make them hit their mark.
Bloomerang: Fires a boomerang at the enemy, hits 3 targets before returning to you.
Iceberg Lettuce: Freeze zombies and extinguish the torch of the Explorer Zombie.  You’ll meet him soon.
Bonk Choy: Deals high damage to knock out zombies.  Usually best placed behind a Wall-Nut.
Grave Buster: Munch on a grave to destroy it.
Peashooter/Repeater/Twin Sunflower: You won’t need them much for now.
Shovel: Use it clear a plant off of your playing field to make room for a new one.
