Atomic Powerup
CI5Atom
An Atomic Powerup in 'Cluck of the Dark Side'.

Usage

Upgrading Firepower

First Appearance

The Next Wave

Atomic Powerup is the default Powerup in the Chicken Invaders series that has been in use since The Next Wave, because with more Weapons, Gifts aren't as reliable. This can be paritially brought back in Cluck of the Dark Side with the Scoring (Limited Powerups) unlockable.

One Award is related to them - the Honourable "Either Brave or Stupid" Award, which requires you to not collect any Powerup in a chapter.

Appearance

The Atomic Powerup resembles an atom. It has three streaks, red, green, and yellow, which go around in circles. In Revenge of the Yolk, its appearance was improved. The tip of the streak now glows, and as the streak goes on, it fades away.

Editions don't change them.

Obtaining

The Atomic Powerup can spawn out of most enemies and bosses in the series. As it is a Powerup, up to three Atomic Powerups are able to spawn per wave in regular waves. With the Scoring (Limited Powerups) unlockable from Cluck of the Dark Side, you can make them never spawn out of regular enemies. If you have a low enough firepower level, you might receive a Charity bonus, which will make a bunch of Atomic Powerups spawn that can be only collected by you and no one else. They'll be protected with an aura that uses the color of your engine. Atomic Powerups may also be gained through the use of Cheats, though this will disable high scores, Awards, Keys, and Unlockable unlocking.

The Atomic Powerups can also be lost. If you happen to lose a life, your firepower will be halved. From Revenge of the Yolk onwards there is an exception to this. Beyond ⚡10, you'll only lose 5 firepower levels instead of having them get halved. After a game over in Cluck of the Dark Side, you will have the amount of firepower you had when starting the chapter you died in.

Once collected, you will gain a firepower level, upgrading your weapon. The formula for the score you'll receive from it is "1,000 + 100 * (firepower + 1)". For example, collecting it on ⚡10 will give you 2,100 points and upgrade your firepower to ⚡11.

Once ⚡20 is reached, you will receive the Max Power! bonus.
