The Baseship is an integral part of the Home Planet. It’s docked at the bottom below the Planet’s inner surface and is accessible through an Elevator Platform to get ready to fight. Get to know parts of the Baseship and prepare for planetary Mayhem.
The Baseship is an integral part of the Home Planet. It’s docked at the bottom below the planet’s inner surface and is accessible by the Player through an Elevator Platform.
After a Defense System is loaded, the Player can transport him/herself there to:
- Analyze the next destination on the Planetary System Holograph.
- Travel to the next planet using the Control Panel.
- Launch himself to an entirely new Planetary system with a Hyperdrive.
The Player will operate inside the Baseship before and after each planet battle. During the gameplay, the Baseship will be always docked and the Player will be able to elevate to the Home Planet easily.
Planetary System Hologram
Planetary System Hologram is a part of the mechanism allowing you to choose the next Planet to go to.
There are three types of Planets. According to their size, the Planets have three difficulty levels. To check the difficulty level you can compare two Planets by grabbing them and comparing their size.
Every single Planet in the new Planetary System starts as a Planet infested by the rotten potatoes – Zombuds. Conquering such planet means killing all of the Zombuds residing in there and their nests.
Other Player’s Planets
Once a Planet is conquered by the Player, it’s no longer Zombud-Infested.
When the Planet is conquered by other Player it changes its color to one which he/she has chosen.
The Control Panel allows you to travel to the chosen planet from the Planetary System Hologram in the Baseship.
After choosing the Planet, you have to launch the engine with two handles called the Hyperdrive. Both handles have to be fully switched and held in that configuration in order to ensure your conscious decision.
After the interaction, you start a journey to the designated planet. After a couple of seconds, you arrive at the destination, and the Elevator Platform automatically travels up to start the battle.
The Defense System is our main operative structure during the Combat in Spuds Unearthed.
The Defense System is also an integral part of the Baseship. Once the Baseship arrives on the Planet, the Defense System goes upwards with you and docks on the Planet.
