"There are many friendly pieces of code who will help you allocate those resources in many different ways. Press DOWN to talk to other robots you see"
Within the simulations there are several friendly pieces of code that take the form of helpful robots and shopkeepers. Here are a list of the robots you can find.== Algo's Bit Store ==
"Buy somethin' will ya!"
Algo is in each simulation but sells different things depending on which simulation you are in. Find him in each simulation to upgrade a wide variety of things. The price of each upgrades doubles every time you purchase it (over a maximum of five upgrades).
In Alphondomes: It can be found at the end of the Spring dome. The upgrades available there are:
- Money finder:
- Dragon- Power up
- + Critical hit %
- Funroad- More time
- Coffee- Power up
In Betagrid 0.9: It can be found in a room on the left of the narrow corridor. The upgrades available there are:
- Battle start: +Life
- Increase red bar value
- Increase blue bar value
- Increase green bar value
- Increase yellow bar value
In Malwastes: It can be found in Malenville. The upgrades available there are:
- Battle start: +Defense
- Battle start: +Attack
- Battle start: +Speed
- Battle start: +Charge
- Buff timer bonus
In Miradmoore: It can be found in third the water hole from the right. The upgrades available there are:
- Enemy debuff timer bonus
- Player debuff reduction
- Weaken enemy increment
- Boxcar is unique in that he doesn't sell anything.
- He is very important however because this is where you customize your conditionals.
About the conditionals: Each time you destroy a fissure in a sub-game, you are rewarded with a conditional. These are conditions (things that can happen) that you can program to trigger other events in battle. When you begin the game you only have two conditionals unlocked- "On-Critical Strike", and "On-Combo Meter". These are in the left column. The list of actions on the right are all of the things that can happen when these conditions occurs. This is where you must make your choice. What do you want to have happen each time you land a critical strike? Do you want it to heal you? Inflict poison on an enemy? Give you a few seconds of double damage? After beating several sub-games, you'll see your list of conditionals grow, and each of these can't be linked to a specific action. Although you click the conditionals one at a time to set them, ALL of them will be active during battle. That means that during battle, both Critical Strike AND Combo Meter will do something, as well as the other conditionals you've unlocked. They are all set by default to "heal", but there are many more creative options at your disposal.
- For instance, there is a conditional called "On Mini-game Start" which will trigger once you've launched a mini-game within a battle. If you link this conditional to the action "mini-game auto-play", then as soon as you start a mini-game, it will begin to play by itself.
Med-Med's Med Station
"Purchase them to use them once per battle!"
Here you can buy restorative and defensive items for the next time you get into a fight. These items are permanent upgrades but can only be used once per fight (aside from the Status Cure which has five uses per fight). Most of these need to be clicked in battle to be used, the only exception is "Auto Continue" which activates when all fighters are dead.
Med-Med is directly above you when you enter Malwastes. Take the first lift and go right. Directly under him is a sub-game as well, however the hover boots are required to reach it. He also appears in Betagrid 0.9 in the second vertical corridor.

Payload Found Something!
