8-bit 80s was a world in Plants vs. Zombies 2. It's new special sneek peek Piñata Parties started on September 7, 2015, with the new gem premium plant, Mystery Berry. It introduces a new zombie, which is the Game Freezer Zombie and the Gravity Modifier Zombie.
The 8-bit 80s takes place in the late 80s, where the classic age of gaming has become popular with games such as Pac-Man, Donkey Kong, and Super Mario Bros.
The main elements of this world were the spawners, wires and the surprise attack "Glitch Hop!". Spawners can spawn random zombies from the world, similar to the portals in E.M.Peach. Wires act like the paths from Qin Shi Huang Mausoleum of Plants vs. Zombies Online. Lastly, "Glitch Hop!" is a surprise attack where Glitch Imps spawn from either the 9th column, 8th column, 7th column or the 6th column.
In this world, E.M.Peaches can temporarily stun the whole level. When the level is stunned, plants, zombies, projectiles and everything else are frozen for 9 seconds. While stunned, the player has time to use Power Ups, or wait for seed packets to refresh, since they aren't frozen. After 9 seconds have passed, the level will go on like normal.
Ever since update 5.9.1 came out, the method of unlocking this world is different from the rest, as it requires you to beat Neon Mixtape Tour.
Game on back to the late 80s and start a new file of zomb-usting! Spawn in some plants and defend yourself from the zombies of the age of gaming history!
