I just downloaded Cookie Clicker (on android) by Deathwing Studios and was given a choice to use my Overcharged Chip to purchase a Heavenly Key or an Infernal Key. The descriptions are as follows:

Heavenly key:
- Unlock new buildings
- Heavenly buildings are cheaper than infernal

Infernal Key:
- Unlock new buildings
- Infernal buildings produce more than heavenly

I decided to go with Infernal Key because more is obviously better but now I'm curious as to the specific benefits of the Heavenly Key. I spent the better part of an hour browsing google but all I've been able to find are details pertaining to the browser version of the game and not the mobile one. Does anybody know the exact details (eg. cost and base CpS) of the Heavenly route?

I don't think this game is covered here since the game is a copyright infringement on the original (Ortell) authors work. Therefore it falls under the piracy paragraph, even though the game was obtained from a legit source. – user28015 Jul 17 '14 at 18:24
@NoneOfYourBusiness Eh....that's a bit of a stretch. It's copyright infringement if it's not legit, but I don't believe it can be classified as piracy. We aren't the IP police. – Frank Jul 17 '14 at 18:45
@NoneOfYourBusiness - According to a search of the US Copyright Office records, there is no registered copyright for cookie clicker. So technically speaking, this question is out of the piracy paragraph's jurisdiction. – slow_excellence Jul 17 '14 at 18:47
@slow_excellence That's a common misconception as well. Things are now granted automatic copyrights at the time of creation; registration is no longer required. Either way, it's not Arqade's job to police what is and isn't valid IP. – Frank Jul 17 '14 at 18:48
@NoneOfYourBusiness Actually, we've had this exact issue come up before, and to date, the consensus is that we will not blanket close questions about games whose legal status is suspect. – agent86 Jul 18 '14 at 0:34
