    According to the wiki, there are several 20% bonus upgrades you can buy, that only spawn when you kill a wrinkler. Also appears to be achievements related to it:

    Itchscratcher Itchscratcher Burst 1 Wrinkler.
    Wrinklesquisher Itchscratcher Burst 50 Wrinklers.
    Moistburster Itchscratcher Burst 200 Wrinklers.
    Spooky Cookies SkullCookies Unlock every Halloween-themed cookie.

    Also, an upgrade that makes research go ten times faster. So only three minutes in between them.

    When you want to explode a wrinkler you have to wait untill it starts "eating" the big cookie. If you explode it before you don't get a message saying you got one. At least that is how it looks like on my side.

    Yeah. According to the wiki, they have to start eating or else there's no chance they turn into one of the upgrades.Also, it's a 5% chance, but if it rolls one that you already have, it cancels out. So you don't get anything. So the more of the upgrades you have, the harder it is to get another one to spawn. Which really sucks.

    Is it just me, or do more cookie chains appear with Grandmapocalypse?

    I have 3 of those wrinkler upgrades already. And i popped 56 wrinkles at this point. They spawn pretty often. Abou tthe cookie chains, i have no idea. but it seems with this update it is more profitable to not pick the elder pledge upgrade. As the wrinkels give alot of cookies if you leave them eating for a bit. They give more then they eat!

    I have four upgrades at 133 popped. It gets progressively harder. Also, not sure on the math of letting them eat your CPS. But it's pretty bad to keep it with the elders being mad. The CPS bonus you get with golden cookies, and the clots, are more important still, I think, than anything else.

    Ofcourse i am not shure aswell if it is better to let them eat for a while but when i get back after 30 minutes or so it feels like i have more cookies then i should have, after i popped them, then when i would not have had those wrinklers

    369th wrinkler gave me my last upgrade. Also appears Grandmas aren't as powerful as they were before. Not really much else happened this patch...

    Hmmm, do the wrinklers ever vanish, or run away with your cookies or anything?

    Do you need to watch out for them, or am I fine to check back every 30ish mins and pop all them at once?

    EDIT: also... what the ACTUAL fuck is up with the grandma picture? That is the face of my nightmares...

    They vanish when you buy an Elder Pledge and grandma's picture turns to normal again too.
    Can't get the new cookie upgrades though when you pledge, which my silly hand did. Told it to not buy the pledge, but it didn't listen to me

    I actually don't know. Don't even know if you get all your lost cookies back or if it's a percentage.

    Patch note says you get your cookies back, with interest! So I'd assume you get your lost cookies back and then some.
    What do you think you know and how do you think you know it?

    Are you conscious in the sense of being aware of your own awareness?

    Isn't it better to just let them nibble on your giant cookie and get a lot of cookies back for it? Assuming the amount they eat is equal to the CpS loss.

    how do you play this game? is it pc or in forums?

  18. #2158
    Just follow the link in the first post. It's a small game made in Javascript.

    You get back 1.1x the cookies they ate.
    so yes, it's better to leave them nibbling,. it's a constant 10% bonus that way - until you need the cookies of course.

    but keep in mind there's achievements ( and thus more milk ) for killing 1, 50 and 250 of them,. as well as halloween bonus unlocks each worth 20% as well as an achievement for unlocking all 7.


    In short, don't use the pledge, those nibblers are giving you 10% bonus cookies and then some, while with pledge you lose 5% - so in total you'll lose 15%.
    only use pledge if you're actively monitoring the screen and snapping up golden cookies.

    Currently at 162 Wrinklers killed, still need the Skull and Spider cookies.
