Resources in Bacterial Takeover include unique collectibles like Minerals or Evolved Bacteria and basic currency like Bacteria and Gene Strands.

Most resources are lost when attacking planets or upon entering a Black Hole, but some — for example Diamonds and Dark Matter — are never lost unless they are actually used to purchase or research something.

Bacteria

Bacteria.png

Bacteria are your main resource. They are used for purchasing and upgrading colonies and attacking planets.

The primary source of Bacteria is purchasing Bacteria colonies, but there are several other ways as well.

Bacteria can reach large numbers very quickly, which are displayed using abbreviations or scientific notification, if it has been enabled in the settings menu.

The player loses all his Bacteria when attacking a planet or entering a Black Hole. In doing so, more valuable resources are obtained and new Bacteria can be produced faster.

Main page: Bacteria

Gene Strands

Gene strand.png

Gene Strands are resources that can be used to purchase various upgrades. Gene Strands and Gene Strand upgrades are not lost after attacking a planet.

Unspent Gene Strands provide a 1% increase to global BPS. This can be increased to 2% by researching Schroedinger's Gene at the Dark Matter Institute.

New Gene Strands can be obtained by killing a percentage of a planet's population.

When entering a Black Hole, Gene Strand upgrades are lost, but the unspent Gene Strands are transformed into Dark Matter.

Main page: Gene Strands



Evolved Bacteria

Common grimmontella.png

Evolved Bacteria can be discovered through Bacteria Evolution at the Research Lab.

A player can equip up to 3 Evolved Bacteria at one time, but there are no limitations as to how many Evolved Bacteria can be owned.

The Evolved Bacteria that are equipped provide bonuses to production, increased critical strike chance and multiplier, reduced research time, and other positive effects.


When entering a Black Hole, there is a default 90% possibility that an Evolved Bacteria will die. Before entering, the player can secure two bacteria that will definitely survive. When the player destroys the fifth planet after the first Black Hole, Bacteria Irradiation is unlocked. It is accessible from the Research Lab and can increase the black hole survivability of an Evolved Bacteria.

Main page: Evolved Bacteria

Scientists

Scientist.png

Scientists are different from most resources, as they are returned to the player after each use. The only way to lose a Scientist is by resetting the research tree of the Dark Matter Institute (if the Doppelganger technology has been purchased).

The player starts the game with one Scientist. New Scientists can be bought for Diamonds and one additional Scientist can be earned by researching the Doppelganger technology in the Dark Matter Institute. There is no limit to how many Scientists a player can have, but each consecutive purchase of a Scientist increases its price.

Scientists are required in the Research Labs to produce resources, evolve Bacteria, irradiate Evolved Bacteria and Bacteria colonies, clean the lab after Bacteria mutation, etc. After researching the Quantum Leap technology at the Dark Matter Institute, each idle Scientist also doubles the player's BPS.

Main page: Scientists


Diamonds

Diamonds.png

Diamonds are a premium resource that can be used to purchase:

  • a permanent BPS bonus
  • a permanent BPC bonus
  • an extra Scientist
  • bacteria equal to 6 hours of BPS

Diamonds can also be used to instantly complete research or reveal the results of Bacteria mutation. Most bonuses that provide incremental boosts, such as additional BPS, increase in price after each purchase.

Diamonds can be obtained:

  • from microtransactions
  • from daily logins
  • by completing achievements
  • by watching ads
  • by completing other actions in game (e.g. destroying the 10th planet for the first time will yield 100 Diamonds)

Unlike most resources, Diamonds are not lost when attacking a planet or entering a Black Hole.

Main page: Diamonds


Nanobots

Nanobot.png

The primary use of Nanobots is to kill the last percentage of a planet's population, which is usually harder to infect by using only Bacteria. Unlike in the case of Bacteria, attacking a planet with Nanobots causes to use up only those Nanobots that were necessary to destroy the planet. Similarly to Gene Strands and Bacteria, all Nanobots are lost when entering a Black Hole.

Nanobot Production is unlocked after destroying the fifth planet. Nanobots can be produced by Scientists.

After researching Quantum Robotics at the Dark Matter Institute, the player has a 0.1% chance to produce a Nanobot on tap. Dark Matter Institute also has various technologies, which increase Nanobot strength by 25%.

After Atreria, all planets have Nanobot resistance, which reduces Nanobot strength. Nanobot strength is not influenced by added infectivity bonus.

Main page: Nanobots

Dark Matter

Dark matter.png

Dark Matter is used to research technologies in the Dark Matter Institute. Unlike Bacteria and Gene Strands, it is not lost when attacking planets or travelling through a Black Hole.

Dark Matter is mainly earned from trips through the Black Hole. The amount earned depends on the number of unspent Gene Strands.

Main page: Dark Matter



Minerals

Minerals are collectibles that can be discovered through Planetary Research or from destroying Planets.

Each Mineral is unique and gives some permanent bonus to Bacteria production.
