Every 1.5 to 3 minutes there is a chance that a Red Bacteria will spawn on the screen.
Tapping on it does not break the idle BPS streak and gives a random reward. The player may receive it immediately or watch a short second video ad to increase the reward amount. The latter option requires an active internet connection.
Certain conditions must be met so that a Red Bacteria could appear on the screen:
- Current BPS must be higher than 0
- The game must be open for 60-90 seconds (or less if the player has researched Alien Life Forms)
If you do not have any research in progress, then no Red Bacteria will spawn with a reduced research time reward.
Red Bacteria Ads
After the watching the ad, there is a cooldown of approximately 1 hour, where Red Bacteria ads are not available and it's possible to select only the free reward. The cooldown for Red Bacteria ads is in no way related to cooldown for other ad types.
If you have an active subscription, then you can receive the better reward without watching ads.
