One of the three true gamemodes (i.e. not counting the Credits). The easiest one; the only one featuring helpful text. Star Plants are more plentiful and always bear fruit. Tougher enemies are slow to show up, and certain enemies are removed. Blocks typically are arranged more flatly, and in groups of 2 or more. The background is green. Everything else is the same between Beginner and Expert mode.

The text goes away after you follow its advice a few times.

The final score is determined by the number of enemies killed before the ultimate demise of the Player.

You cannot advance past level 23.
