If there not enough to do what it needs to do, it will stop and force you to help the ettins get the power-ups to their respectful place.

The powerup for infinite scroll in Creatures 2.

Power-ups or pick-ups are items in Creatures 2 and Creatures 3 which activate certain parts of the game.

In Creatures 2, the power-ups activate kits such as the science kit and biochemistry kit, and allow selection of Grendels and Ettins, and infinite scroll.

In Creatures 3, the power-ups activate machinery: the Creator/Injector, the Replicator, the Recycler and the Splicer. They also allow you to select Grendels and Ettins and pick up Creatures.

In both games power-ups are activated by getting a norn to push them. In Creatures 2, they resemble spinning yellow disks, but in Creatures 3 they are blue rectangles.

Many felt that the introduction of power-ups in the series increased the 'adventure' aspect of the games, by forcing players to run around the map and collect objects, while reducing the artificial life aspect. Others simply found it annoying to have to collect things all over again when starting a new world (in C3). For this reason there are a few COBs/agents which activate things for you.

For Creatures 2, LummoxJR created QuickPower, and Object Pack 2 contained the Game State Controller COB.

JayD made the Pick Up Pick-ups.cos, which was available for download at SeeYou7.Net. Clucky created the New Pickups which moves all pick-ups to the Norn Terrarium and allows the player to activate them. Arnout created the similar Pick-up Cheat which moves all pick-ups to the Norn Terrarium and allows the player to activate them, and is compatible with his Creatures 3 hard mode extension to the pickup system.
