Plants vs. Zombies is a great game. There’s lots to do, even after you beat the main game. There’s new games and puzzles to play, and things to buy. Money actually becomes a large part of the game later on, so having a good way to get money is important.
In my opinion, the Zen Garden is the easiest and most consistent way to get money if you have a decent sized garden. Purchasing Stinky the Snail makes collecting the coins and diamonds easier, but there is one critical problem: he’s narcoleptic. He’ll often take a snooze after just a couple minutes of collecting coins, meaning that you have to sit there and wake him up.
“Not fair!” I say. What if I wanted to take a nap? Can’t we take shifts? Apparently not, according to PopCap. So, I decided I needed something that would wake Stinky up, and along the way a few other features snuck in. Ladies and gentlemen, I give you… Zen Garden Farmer.
Garden Farmer works for you by taking control of the mouse and doing some of the more tedious tasks of taking care of your Zen Garden. Hopefully this video will help explain things.
So, feel like trying it out for yourself? Go ahead and grab it then! Interested in the source code? It’s shared on GitHub! http://github.com/jocull/ZenGardenFarmer
Update: I got bored and decided to add in a Whack-a-Zombie mode. It works for Beghouled Twist too as long as you have matches available. If you run out of matches you can just take over for a second to hit the “shuffle” button, then put it back on cruise control. Video here:
