I cleared the Sunny Days achievement just recently, so yeah, I think I have to share. As far as I know, the Sunny Days achievement is an iPhone-only achievement. The requirement is for the player to get 8000 sun in a single level. Just get 8000 sun, and you win. :D Sounds easy, right? No. (Just look at the pool post I added.) Or so I thought.
Thinking about it, it might be a good idea to get it at the easiest level, level 1-1. If you have unlocked Quick Play mode, you can play it there. On further thinking, it might be easier to get sun over hard levels with longer duration. “Is it not possible on level 1-1?”, I thought. Let’s see.
It might be a good idea to buy the twin sunflower first.
What you’ll need:
- Sunflower (+ Twin sunflower)
- Peashooter (remember the power estimation?)
The idea is to plant garlic at the front of lanes 1, 3 and 5 (remember the garlic strategy?) and plant peashooters at the back of lanes 2 and 4. (This is to maximize the space between the peashooter and the zombies. Responsiveness isn’t important here, a peashooter at the back will kill the most zombies, right?)
And then, plant sunflowers everywhere else. :D
Now for the details. Try to plant three sunflowers all in the same lane in a garlic (non-zombie) lane. Then the first zombie should appear. Plant your peashooter in the lane wherever the zombie is. If the zombie is not in a zombie lane, plant a garlic first to divert it. Continue planting the sunflowers and the other plants. Try not to plant any sunflowers in the zombie lanes first until you fill the non-zombie lanes with sunflowers. After the non-zombie lanes are filled, fill the zombie lanes with sunflowers from back to front.
What to do while the zombies are eating my sunflowers?
It’s actually a good idea to bring explosive plants (cherry bomb, jalapeno and squash) with you. They will take out the zombies plus they don’t eat space (hence the non-inclusion of the doom-shroom). As it doesn’t take space too, taking pumpkins with you is also a good idea. But try not to plant them frequently, as you know they decrease your sun.
