Super Auto Pets is an indie game that has taken the world by storm. It is a simple enough game, fundamentally, but the skill ceiling is virtually unmeasurable. Since it is an idle battler, the strategy comes from how you set your team up and play to their strengths. The game page itself tells us that the game is easy to learn and very hard to master. While it is excellent at combat and other nuances, it is not very good with the in-game currencies. Snacks are the most common form of currency in-game, one that you will typically have large stockpiles of. But do you know what to do with them and how to use them? Well, that is precisely the topic of this guide.
Currencies in games are very hard to nail down. With the recent in-game transactions taking effect, there are almost always at least two types of currencies in-game. One is the typical in-game kind, with which you can do very little. The other is a premium currency or an equivalent of it. You can only get this by paying a certain amount of real money to the game. Snacks are the first kind in Super Auto Pets, as they can be acquired without having to spend real money.
Super Auto Pets: How to use snacks?
Super Auto Pets received an update regarding how snacks are used in-game. It is no longer a form of currency that has any in-game value or benefit. It is simply a placeholder that has not been replaced to respect the players who have stockpiled it. What used to be a secondary currency that you could earn in-game is now a form of redeeming rewards. Apart from this seemingly two-dimensional function, it only has a few use cases. Players with significant stockpiles of it have basically been robbed of all their use. You can still use it because the developers did not want to fully remove it from the game so they reassigned its purpose.
How to use them?
You get snacks for every game you play. Once you are done playing a game, you can use them to unlock earned rewards. It is essentially a progression/milestone currency that many popular AAA games offer. Essentially, you keep collecting this as you progress and have enough to redeem it for rewards. As we said, this is a very basic and two-dimensional currency in-game. Players who previously stockpiled it can now cash out with these rewards. It is important to note that these rewards are usually random and cannot be returned. If you spend snacks to redeem a customization or reward, it can also duplicate, and you will not get your snacks back. All of this is disappointing since, before the update to snacks, it was an actually usable currency in the game.
Is this a good idea?
Well, it is not a bad idea per se. Since they are proportionally rewarded and you can redeem cosmetics with them, they are still useful. In a way, they are now an indication of how good you are at the game since some cosmetics will naturally fetch a higher price than others. This makes them very useful as bragging tools. It also declutters the in-game economy and makes it a lot easier to understand. On the other side, this can come off as an unnecessary change to the existing system. Since this was a currency, the devs could have retained it as one rather than relegating it to redeeming rewards.
