Here are some cheats and tricks that you'd definitely find helpful when playing PopCap's Plants vs. Zombies:

1. How to defeat the FINAL Boss ?!

The Final Boss uses 2 attacks to crush everything in its path (except for zombies): The Fireball and the Iceball. To neutralize the fire ball, use an Ice Shroom on the same row but only in tandem with a Coffee Bean lest you want the Shroom to fall asleep. To neutralize the Ice Ball, use Chili pepper in the same row. Doing these will make it easier to attack the final boss and to kill it just like any other zombie.
