See, this is why game preservation is important.
This game is defunct.
Do note the game no longer works at all without modifications. This is most likely due to the game's servers being shut down. As a result, further official developments with the game are unlikely to happen.

This article is a work in progress.
...Well, all the articles here are, in a way. But this one moreso, and the article may contain incomplete information and editor's notes.

Essentially an online, PC exclusive version of Plants vs. Zombies 2, Plants vs. Zombies Online was a china exclusive game in the Plants vs. Zombies series developed in collaboration with Tencent Games. Wouldn't be the first time PopCap collaborated with a controversial developer, that's for sure. It's also notable for being the final tower-defense game in the series thus far to be released for Windows.

On August 11th, 2018, players were no longer able to log into the game and the entire website as well as the server were removed completely.

Unused Animations

Unused Plants

Small Peach from Plants vs. Zombies: All Stars! Looks like it was planned to make an appearance, but was scrapped.

PvZOL Mihungu.gif

A completely unused plant referred to in the files as 'Mihungu,' who resemble the Hypno-shroom. Interestingly uses the artstyle from PvZ 1.

PvZO Magnet-shroom.gif

An animation of Magnet-Shroom stealing a zombie's metal object from Plants vs. Zombies. Strangely uses the PvZ 1 art style as opposed to the PvZ 2 art style seen everywhere else in the game. Maybe a placeholder?

Unused Zombies

A scrapped Imp variant that would've fit quite nicely in Qin Shi Huang Mausoleum. No Imps appear in that world, however.

PVZO Unused Pufferfish Imp OL.gif

An Imp who would've appeared in East Sea Dragon Palace. No Imps appear in that world.

Unused Graphics

PvZOL Day Lawn.png

Hey, it's the daytime lawn from PvZ 1! What it's doing here is unknown, however. Perhaps a placeholder lawn?

Miscellaneous

Present

A colorful present. Formerly used as a reward chest for doing a certain number of daily tasks, but was soon scrapped for unknown reasons.

Lighting Effect

A lighting effect that would've been used for the Qin Shi Huang Mausoleum lawn in older versions of the game. Strangely, it is stored as a .swf asset.

Here's how it would've looked in-game.
