Cell stage: Growing
When you emerge from the meteor, eat meat or plants to complete the "Eat" mission. You should grow in size. Keep eating until a cell eats another and reveals a gold shield. Swim into it and keep eating. Mate to equip the part in the gold shield. After you grow, find a "Booster" (red and have more than two eyes) and defeat it. This will unlock another gold shield. Swim into it and keep eating. After you grow again, find a cell that is leaving a pink trail. Defeat it and stay out of the trail. This will unlock another gold shield. Swim into it. Keep eating until you grow. Find a pink cell named "Pinky" or "Punky" and defeat it. This will unlock another gold shield. Swim into it. After you grow two times, find a "Buzzy" (orange). This will unlock another gold shield. Swim into it. Keep eating until you finish the Cell stage.
Cell stage: Becoming an omnivore
Use the following trick to become an omnivore, even if your cell stage development chart makes you a carnivore or herbivore. Explore in cell stage until you find a cell with an omnivore mouth, which looks like a tube, and acquire it. Once you have it, evolve into creature stage normally, but do not delete the mouth. Shrink it and hide it behind another part. Then, even if the mouths you are allowed to select from are not omnivore mouths, you still have the omnivore mouth from the cell stage. This is useful in a variety of ways. For example, if you are a carnivore all the way through cell stage but you want to make friends in creature stage you normally cannot. You have to eat at least some creatures to survive.
Creature stage: Easy impressing
During the Creature stage (fresh out of the tidal pool), you can get additional parts for your creature by impressing the alpha versions of the fellow inhabitants of your world. When you first approach them, sometimes others of their species will join in the game. The more of them there are, the more difficulty it can become. Push the alpha away from the nest and try to solo it out so that you only have to deal with him dancing, singing, etc. against your crew of followers.
Creature stage: Easy Epic kills
This trick requires all the strongest weapons you have unlocked thus far. Once you put these on your creature, find an Epic. It usually helps to migrate as well, in case the Epic is close to another one of your nests. Once you find one, click it, then click "Spit" in the attack bar. You will automatically walk closer to it. Note: You will need wings or sprint. Once you suddenly spit at it, fly a small distance towards your nest. Turn around to make sure it is following you. Repeat the process to lure it to your nest. Then, immediately walk onto your nest and attack it. The Epic is so big that in order to get close enough to you it has to walk onto your nest. It cannot attack you on your nest, but because of its size, you can attack it. Your nest mates will help you to kill it. Note: This may take some time. Although the Epic will constantly roar at you, it cannot get you. This is an easy way to kill Epics and unlock the "Epic killer in creature stage" award.
Creature stage: Wings
If you unlock wings, put them on your creature. If you get low on health during a battle, just fly away to your nest to heal.
Creature stage: Herbivore eats meat without vomiting
When playing a herbivore, have the creature pick up meat. Then, click somewhere else. Make sure the creature is walking when it eats the meat. It will eat it, but will not get sick.
Creature stage: Shoreline nest
- Sometimes your nest may be on the shoreline in the sea. This is a problem, because on land you cannot do a lot of things. Because of this, you will die quickly.
- When you go to Creature stage, your nest may be in the water but you will not be able to go onto land because you will get eaten. It will take a long time. Try each planet.
Tribal stage: Start with domesticated animals
Have members of other tribes in your pack before completing the Creature stage. Advance to the Tribal stage and they will be transformed into domesticated animals in your tribe's pen.
Tribal stage: Village protectors and free food
Make sure to befriend, then recruit, as many rouges as possible in the Creature stage. They not only help you in Creature stage, but if they are still alive when you enter Tribal stage, you will see them in a pen behind the main hut. If you hover the pointer over them, notice they kept their "Rouge" stats, with over 200 HP and high powered attacks. They will defend any villagers being attacked by wild animals, and will fight off enemy attacks on your village. Most rouges have as much attack power as your chieftain, but twice as much HP. They can really tip the scales in your favor in a big battle. They also regenerate on their own between battles, which when combined with their high HP makes them nearly immortal. They will continuously lay eggs in the box next to their pen, which you can harvest. The more and the bigger the animals in your pen, the more eggs they produce. Three rouges can keep a single villager harvesting indefinitely, giving you both an animal deterrent while your other villagers are away and a continuous source of food, giving you a decisive edge in the Tribal stage.
Tribal stage: Protecting your food
Use the following trick to prevent wild Spores from stealing while you are a long distance away. Leave one of your tribesman at your nest to defend the odd Spore that will attempt to get your hard earned food.
Tribal stage: Defeating other tribes
Equip all your warriors with stone axes, otherwise use spears. Attack the tribe and kill everyone. Leave two members there while the rest go back for torches. Kill any babies that appear with the two that remain behind. When the others return, destroy the main tent.
Space stage: Conquering planets
Note: This trick will start a war. Enable the setConsequenceTrait space_zealot code. A new tool called "Fanatical Frenzy" will appear in your "Socialization" tools. If you already had it, it will be instantly recharged. Use it on a planet and it will automatically become yours. This also works on home worlds. However, unless you have over 35 points in your relationship with another empire or are far away from the other empire, they will most likely go to war with you. To determine your relationship (and the positive and negative factors affecting it), move the pointer over the image of the planet owner when over or on a plane. Continually use this trick against enemy home worlds while using your normal weapons on the rest of their planets until there are no other empires that are at war against you. You should now be in control over a large portion of the galaxy under your control.
Space stage: The Grox
- If you are allied with The Grox, all the empires will hate you. If the Grox say something rude, use Fanatical Frenzy on one of their planets. You will get a planet or star system and the Grox will not get mad. This also means that they will not have -100 because you captured one of their systems.
- Grox can only live on T0 planets. Make it a T1 planet and you are done. This is a fast and cheap way to go Grox hunting.
Space stage: Staff Of Life
Get the Interstellar Drive 5 and go to the center of the galaxy. If you make it past the Grox, go inside the core. Watch the cinematic and you will unlock the Staff Of Life. It allows you to make any planet T3 and it will already be filled out. Note: The staff has limited charges.
Part rotation in any creator
In the creators, click on a part to select it. Then, hold [Tab] and you can rotate it in any way. Note: This does not work on some parts.
Use the following trick when you see shells, twigs, and rocks lying around. Instead of spending money on spit and charge, it is possible to pick them up and throw them at enemies, stunning them. If you stun an alpha creature, you can easily tear down the lower health creatures, turn the tide, and get easier DNA.
Easy "Epic Killer" achievement
The only sure way to this is to lure an Epic into another Epic. Note: Save your game before you get the battle with the Epics. An Epic creature is much bigger than the usual species. It can one-shot almost anything even though its attack range of 3-7 is not very powerful to you. Epic creatures have 1,000 health. First, get a Spit weapon with at least 4+ Spit. Spit will lure the Epic towards you but do not die. Next, have two or three Pack members (Rogue recommended). Rogues are more powerful than a normal creature, but weaker than an Epic. Rogues have 250 health and do massive damage. Spit at an Epic creature and make it follow you. Stay at a distance and lure it to another. Find the two you want to battle. Once they start, find the one that will probably win. Start attacking the one that is about to win. This will increase your chances of getting the achievement. Once the Epic battle is over, the Epic that won and the one you attacked should be about down to 200 health or less. If not, quit to the main menu and restart. Constantly Spit until it is down to less than 10 health. Charge it, then Strike or Bite and you will win and get the "Epic Killer" achievement.
Easy "Manifest Destiny" achievement
