Compounds are the primary collectable items for the player to obtain in Thrive's Microbe stage. Compounds are used by the microbes' organelles to execute various processes such as the production of ATP.
Compounds can currently be obtained through compound clouds, found in the envrinment. To collect the compounds cloud one must swim through it. Depending on the biome the microbe is located different amount of compound clouds wil be found.
|Glucose||Used with oxygen to produce ATP||Collected through white compound clouds|
|Ammonia||Crucial for the cell's reproduction||Collected through orange compound clouds|
|Hydrogen Sulfide||Can be converted into glucose via chemoplast||Collected through yellow compound clouds|
|Phosphates||Crucial for the cell's reproduction||Collected through purple compounds clouds|
|ATP||Produced via organelle processing|
