Keys are a game mechanic in Ultimate Omelette and Cluck of the Dark Side. They are used as currency to buy Unlockables. They are found in-game through destroying enemies with a yellow glow around them, which has a chance to happen roughly every minute. If Cheats have been used in a mission, the Keys will no longer spawn. Once collected, they give 11111 points.

Ultimate Omelette

Collecting

On average, unless you're planning to farm Keys on purpose, you'll receive 50 of them per mission.

Uses

In this game, you'll need a total of 3040 Keys to purchase everything. Unless you want to play through 60 missions, you'll have to farm them, and here there aren't any unlockables that help you collect more keys.

The Keys can be spent on 20 different Unlockables - 5 weapon related, 5 satellite related, 1 cosmetic, 1 Difficulty related, 4 UI related and 4 spaceship related. You can read more about them here.

Cluck of the Dark Side

Collecting

On average, unless you're planning to farm keys on purpose, you'll receive per mission 50 Keys in Rookie, 75 Keys in Veteran, and 100 Keys in Superstar Hero. You're able to make keys spawn more often (by 25%) if you're using the Gold Digger unlockable. The Scoring unlockables also help. By making the game harder, they will also let you collect more Keys because you'll spend more time on completing waves.

Uses

In this game, you'll need a total of 3710 Keys, which without the helpful unlockables would require 37 missions. Gold Digger brings the number down to 30, and Scoring unlockables even more.

The Keys can be spent on 31 different unlockables - 5 cosmetic, 5 spaceship related, 4 UI related, 5 difficulty related, 5 weapon related, 4 satellite related and 3 special paint-jobs. You can read more about them here.

Universe

Collecting in missions

Keys can be obtained from killing enemies with a yellow glow, like in the earlier games. At the end of a mission, the amount of keys you received will be multiplied:

Mission type Base multiplier
Chicken Invasion +300%
Boss Rush None
Darkness +400%
Droid Raid +500%
Squawk Block +300%
Daily Challenge +300%
Weekly Challenge +300%

Additionally, keys and score bonus is awarded based on the difficulty of the mission and the skill that the player has chosen, harder skills award more points and yield more keys.

Other key sources

Keys can also be collected by:

  • Simply opening the game daily to get 20 keys every day.
  • Exploring new constellations.
  • Exploring new star systems.
  • Exploring each planet in a star system.
  • Achieve enough score to advance to the next tier, which pays off an increasing amount of keys per tier.
  • Selling food at the Space Burger.

Uses

Keys are used to buy different items in the Galactic Store and regional shops. Sell prices are better on regional shops than the Galactic Store.
