"Place on the planet to raise the temperature"
A Meteor Shower is a terraforming tool. When used, the player's spaceship shoots a spiraling tractor beam into the sky to pull in meteors that rain down on the planet, and raise the temperature. Meteor showers can also be used as weapons.
This tool uses purchased ammunition.
Meteor showers will sometimes occur in Creature stage. When this happens, a more frantic version of the battle music will play, and a huge meteor will fall from the sky and crash. Smaller meteors will follow and creatures will run in terror. If a meteor hits your creature, it will be stunned for a bit and injured. Interestingly, the music sounds somewhat like the Tusken Raider theme from Star Wars.
