The Upgrade Menu allow the player to acquire and level up Cats and various Abilities.
Upgrading Cats and Abilities
- Cats upgrades and Base Upgrades increases the efficiency and strength of your units and abilities. For example, if you upgrade Basic Cat to Level Two, Three etc, each time the level is increased, it gains more Attack Power and Health. When upgrading a Base Upgrade, the same thing happens, increasing the effectiveness of whatever you upgrade.
- Bear in mind, most cat evolution forms and certain upgrades have some type of offsets or drastic stat changes. For example, The Cat Cannon Power Upgrade will increase the Cat Cannon attack power but has a negative impact on the charge time. In comparison, Efficiency Upgrade increases the income generating speed, but increases the cost of upgrading the Worker Cat .
- For now the maximum level for these caps at level 20(+10 via daily cat ticket gacha) except for Cat Cannon Range (up to 10 only). Here's a quick description of what they do.
