Breed freaky creatures in this foul fridge
to reign supreme in arena battles!
Bachelor Fridge Features
Like any self respecting bachelor, you've never taken anything out of your fridge: the Indian takeaway that you'd get back to six months ago; the block of cheese that's been there since the Titanic went down. Lately though, you've noticed that some of the food is getting a little frisky. The ancient bacon has started grazing on the lettuce, the kebab from Christmas 1999 is feeding on the fried egg sandwich and something is moving mysteriously in last year's yoghurt. Your fridge is evolving new, rather aggressive and somewhat disgusting life-forms.
Bachelor Fridge is a management and battle game allowing you, the owner of a truly appalling fridge, to evolve creatures from rotting food, and enter them into combative multi-player strategy matches.
Mutate your deceptively cute creatures until they have the dirty attacks you thirst for, and then take them into the arena to crush players from around the world. Each creature can be heavily customised by feeding it the right kind of food. Three arenas await you along with three battle modes, so prepare to be disgusted and entertained by the vicious creatures you create!
1. In the arena battles what turn structure does the game use?
The arena game uses a system of plotted turns, where each player plans the movement of their creatures simultaneously and then all creatures move in order of their speed. This is then repeated for the attacks a creature wants to perform. The trick in this game is understanding when your creature is going to move, and then trying to anticipate where your opponents are going to move to.
2. How do I give my creature more attacks and moves?
You can develop your creature by feeding it new foods. Hints about what food type the creature is craving can be seen – look out for their bubbles picturing the food category of their desires! After feeding a creature, you can see what new features it has by right-clicking on it or picking up the magnifier and clicking on it. To use any new moves or attacks, equip them by clicking on them. Right-click any unwanted features to remove them from your Equipped Actions.
3. How do I earn more money to buy food for my creatures?
Money is earned by battling other players' creatures in the multi-player arena. There is a £5 reward for a win and £1 for a loss. This loot can be boosted by many battle titles worth 20 pence each, and can be won by anyone in the match. The money prizes are given in both Rated and Unrated games.
4. I have filled my fridge with eight creatures but I want to breed more. What can I do?
Five freezer spaces are available to store your creatures – this is boosted to 50 places for paying members. When your freezer is full, create space for new creatures by dragging unwanted fridge fellows onto the bin to destroy them.
5. I made a creature using the same foods as my friend but theirs look different. Why is this?
A creature's appearance is dictated by both the foods used and the order they are fed in. The first food creates the central creature, and further foods will unlock features and change the appearance of it. Feeding the same foods in a different order will create alternative looks – experiment to see what you can create!
6. I have only one awesome creature. Can I play multi-player matches?
Multi-player battles can be fought with three to six creatures. Using your strongest creature to 'Take the Grub' or 'Capture the Fly' could be a winning strategy for you.
7. What do the numbers to the left of the creatures when in battle mean?
The numbers are the order in which the creatures will move or attack. The fastest creature is assigned the lowest number and will move and attack first in the multi-player battles. The 'Speed' statistic can be viewed in the fridge by right-clicking or by using the magnifier. Where there are ties in the 'Speed' statistics, the appropriate rankings will be randomly allocated.
8. Fisticuffs, Flingstuff, Stamina and Speed... which creature feature is best?
The statistics of each creature can be seen by right-clicking it or left-clicking when using the magnifier. The Fisticuffs rating shows how strong your close-range attacks are. These attacks are shown in red to the left of the statistics. The Flingstuff rating relates to how strong your long-range attacks are (shown in blue). The Stamina rating equates to how much health your creature has. The Speed rating decides how soon your creature moves and how far it moves to. All of these features are useful in battles. You could try having a team of mixed abilities, or a specialised team who are all strong in one area. Try out different teams to see which suits you best.
9. What do the different in-game power-ups do?
The Fisticuffs, Flingstuff and Speed power-ups boost your statistic for that area to the next ranking for five turns, unless you are already at the top level. The Stamina power-up boosts the health of the collecting creature by two segments, which is worth 40 hit points. This boost does not have a turn limit. If you pick-up a power-up when you are at the top ranking for that statistic it will not increase your ranking, nor will it hurt you. It will stop another player from picking it up, though! Choose your power-ups wisely, as you can only use one at a time.
10. What am I supposed to do in the different game types?
Annihilation is a classic 'last creature standing' battle to the death. A Take the Grub game is won by taking and holding control of more than half of the key points on the map (marked by grubs) for three consecutive turns. Ownership of these points is gained by standing a creature on them. Capture the Fly games balance attack and defence – collect a fly from another team and return to your own to capture it. Your fly must be there for you to get credit for your efforts, so defend it well! Flies are returned to their starting positions by killing the creature that is holding them. The player who has the most captures out of five will win.
