Upgrade Items

Overview

  • By collecting enough stars and finding shops in the germ world, the player can purchase helpful upgrade items.
tag_story.gifThe germs have developed DNA strains that can enhance the abilities of any life form. The germs will exchange these items for wealth units, as they can break down the wealth units to use in their constructions.

Leaf storage

500 wealth units
This upgrade allows the player to stockpile 10 extra leaf items. Collecting 10 of these upgrades enables the player to stockpile an unlimited number of leaf items.

Seed storage

500 wealth units
This upgrade allows the player to stockpile 10 extra seed items. Collecting 10 of these upgrades enables the player to stockpile an unlimited number of seed items.

Turbo Run Seed-Leaf converter

600 wealth units
If the player does not have enough energy to perform a turbo run, s/he can use this upgrade to draw on his/her seed and leaf reserves to perform the move. This is useful if the player needs to perform the turbo run in an emergency (e.g. to escape from rats [refer to the vermin section]). One seed/leaf power up is consumed for each second the turbo run is performed.

Turbo Run booster

2, 000 wealth units
Reduces the number of units of energy consumed by the turbo run move to one unit for each second the move is performed.

Shield storage

3, 000 wealth units
Normally, if the player is using a shield, collecting a new one will cause the old one to disappear. This upgrade allows the player to stockpile the new shield, causing it to automatically appear when the old one wears off.

Mini-Laboratory

5, 000 wealth units
The mini-laboratory contains all of the coloured atoms in the outer-world. This allows the player to easily experiment with them to discover the power-ups that are formed when particular combinations are mixed [refer to the atoms section]. This is a rare item and will only appear if the player has gained the trust of the germs [refer to the trust section].

Book-world eyes

8, 000 wealth units
The eyes cause books that contain book-worlds to glow red in colour, making them easier to find. This is a rare item and will only appear if the player has gained the trust of the germs [refer to the trust section].

Germ-world eyes

8, 000 wealth units
The eyes cause objects that contain germ-worlds to glow green in colour, making them easier to find. This is a rare item and will only appear if the player has gained the trust of the germs [refer to the trust section].
