Bacteria are the main resource in the game. It is used for purchasing and upgrading colonies and attacking planets.

Bacteria can be obtained in the following ways:

  • by tapping on the screen
  • automatically, if the player has purchased some colonies
  • from red bacteria bonus
  • from failed colony irradiation or bacteria evolution

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.

Gene Strands

Gene strands are used for purchasing upgrades that provide various bonuses.

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.

Gene strands and gene strand upgrades are not lost after attacking a planet.
