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 are used for purchasing upgrades that provide various bonuses.
Gene strands and gene strand upgrades are not lost after attacking a planet.
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 a 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.
