* EarnYourFun: The Jade Scarab minigame requires you to click increasing amounts of Jade Messengers that periodically appear on the main game in order to gain runes to fill a 10x10 grid of 100 bonuses, giving you a week to do so before the bonuses you obtained activate. If you manage to fill up the entire grid, you're rewarded with some ''very'' powerful boosts, while also gaining several valuable Pearls, Gems, Gene Points and Burrower Crabs in the process.

This causes Colossal Crab to be ''far'' weaker than Shadow Swarm in the mid- to late-game, making it nearly useless.
