Unlockables are additional features that have to be first unlocked to be able to be enabled. In Cluck of the Dark Side, this process is identical to the one seen in Ultimate Omelette.

Unlocking

CI5Unlockables

Unlockables menu.

In this game, unlockables have to be unlocked by collecting a specific amount of Keys and spending them in the Unlockables menu. On average, you should receive per mission 50 Key on Rookie, 75 Key on Veteran, and 100 Key on Superstar Hero. 3710 Key are required to buy every Unlockable listed here so you'll have to play through atleast 37 missions. Luckily, in this game there are also unlockables that help you gain more keys. Gold Digger allows them to drop 25% more often, and Scoring unlocks let you obtain more through making you clear waves much slower. Unlockables in this game can be unlocked in any order you want.

List of Unlocks

There are 31 Unlockables available - 5 weapon related, 4 satellite related, 4 UI related, 5 Difficulty related, 5 cosmetic, 5 spaceship related and 3 special paintjobs.

Cost - 75 Key

This weapon is returning yet again from Revenge of the Yolk, and it has to be unlocked to appear in-game. It's the military-issue brother of the Lightning Fryer, which delivers more damage to an enemy and has better auto-lock, but it also overheats faster. It is available in-game from Chapter 5.

Trivia

  • At first, the game did not include space background unlockables. In 0.20BETA, space backgrounds from sequels of Chicken Invaders were added, and in 0.30BETA, the space background from that game was also added.
  • Certain unlockables costed much more in 0.10BETA.
