About This Game



From Single Cell to Galactic God, evolve your creature in a universe of your own creations.
Play through Spore's five evolutionary stages: Cell, Creature, Tribe, Civilization, and Space. Each stage has its own unique style, challenges, and goals. You can play how you choose — start in Cell and nurture one species from humble tidepool organism to intergalactic traveler, or jump straight in and build tribes or civilizations on new planets. What you do with your universe is up to you.
Spore gives you a variety of powerful yet easy-to-use creation tools so you can create every aspect of your universe: creatures, vehicles, buildings, and even starships. While Spore is a single-player game, your creations are automatically shared with other players providing a limitless number of worlds to explore and play.

Features

  • CREATE Your Universe from Microscopic to Macrocosmic — From tide pool amoebas to thriving civilizations to intergalactic starships, everything is in your hands.
  • EVOLVE Your Creature through Five Stages — It's survival of the funnest as your choices reverberate through generations and ultimately decide the fate of your civilization.
  • EXPLORE Other Players' Galaxies — Will your creature rule the universe, or will your beloved planet be blasted to smithereens by a superior alien race?
  • SHARE with the World — Everything you make is shared with other players and vice versa, providing tons of cool creatures to meet and cool places to visit.

Spore is one of my favourite games of all time. It allows absolute freedom and has countless of available choices you can make when evoloving your species and expanding their dominion throughout the stages.
There are 5 stages you can play: Cell stage, Creature stage, Tribal stage, Civalisation stage and Galactic stage. Whenever starting a new game on a different planet, you can choose at which stage you'd like to start, which furtherns the freedom you have and allows you to play what stage you want, as long as it's unlicked off course ;)

During the Cell stage, you control and evolve your cell. It's simular to an aquarium simulator game, but here your choices affect your future game. Choose which type of cell you are, Carnivore or Herbivore. Then, eat plants or meat depending on your creature's diet, compete with other cell species and unlock traits by killing cells that have them, or finding them in cracked meteor that fell into the ocean. In the end, you can end up being a Herbivore, Carnivore or an Omnivore.
Remember, your choices affect your future, and the traits your species have will determine how well you will survive int he upcoming stages.

During Creature stage, you control your creature on the land. Scavange for food, whether it's by hunting down other species for meat, or looking for vegitation on plants. As you progress, you'll have to develop your creature's brain, and by this you'll need to either hunt different species into extinction, or befriend them with your social skills. Roam around the world, looking for skeleton parts that'll unlock new creature parts you'll be able to put on your creature. Each part will determine how well your species do in combat, when socialising with other speices, your species looks and their traits.
Watch out, their may be some outer planetery vistis trying abduct some specimen.
This is the last stage where you'll be evolving your species traits, so remember, your actions affect your future.
Here, you can end up with being a carnivore, omnivore or a herbivore for the rest of the game.

The third stage is Tribal stage. Here, it's time to develop your tribe. Your species hav become sentient beings, and now must work together to gather food and expand their village. Build new buildings that will give access to weapons and tools for your tribe. Compete with other tribes that'll rise, whether fighting them into extinction, or befriending them by socialising. Defend your village from wild animals that'll try to steal your food, or attacking enemy tribe members. Dress your species with cloths that'll affect them how well they do in combat, and when socialising. Remeber, your choices affect your future. At the end of the stage, your actions will have determined how your species behave with other species. Whether they're religious, militarised or businessmen.

The fourth stage is Civalisation stage. Here you'll have to try and conquer the world. Design your cities with house, factories, theatres and other decorative items. Design how your houses, factore, town hall and theatre look with loads of options. Paint them, shape them and go wild with your imagination. When conquering the world, you have to first dominate your continet. Design your own vechile which acts like a tank. There are loads of options, from Industrial typical looking tanks, to futuristic flying tanks. Balance out the three tank categories, speed, attack damage and health. To fund this war, you'll need to the 'Spice resource'. This resource is generated from capturing spice mines and through factories in cities. Once you dominate your continet, take it to the sea and air with your own ships and planes. You design how you like with loads of options, just like when designing your tanks and buildings. Conquer the world through military power, or religious take overs, or perhaps buying your way into dominance. You start with a city that is relevant to your specie type. But when capturing cities, you can keep them as they are or converting them into your specie categorie: Military, Religious, Business. Remember, your choices of conquering cities will affect the galactic stage.

The last stage is the galactic stage, and the biggest stage of all. Desgin your space ship and explore the galaxy, and trust me, the galaxy is big. Colonise planets actross hundreds of hundreds of solar systems that lay across the whole of milky way. Terraform planets to suit life, discover new races across the galaxy. Locate other galactic empires, trade with them, ally or go to war. Each planet that has is controlled by a galactic power will offer missions that you can choose to complete. Explore planets for rare relics and fossils that each galactic power will be interested in purchasing. Upgrade your space ship with tools and equipment you may happen to stumble upon your journey or through purchase.
Expand your species galactic infulence and empire, make your empire's economy and yourself rich through the 'Spice' resource that'll be produced on planets that are controlled by galactic empires, or by trade and exploration.
Remember, your choices will affect your relationship with other galactic empires and yours.

I recommend this game highly. It's really fun and offers more than 40 hours of great fun.

I just paid for and downloaded this game plus all of the adventure packs and cute & creepy skins, etc.
I love this game.... BUT

I CANNOT CONNECT TO THE SPORE NETWORK... I bought this game *primarily* so that I could play it online but when I boot the game up, the very first thing it says is that it cannot connect to the network and then does absolutely nothing to try and fix this issue. I have tried what I can to remedy it but it did not make any difference.

I DO RECOMMEND YOU PLAY THIS GAME AS IT IS VERY FUN but if I could get a refund I would do it in a heartbeat. I am extremely disappointed in this purchase.

really good game. I love this game because it emphasises that there could be different lifeforms in the galaxy and there could be many. at the end of the game I like the idea that there is a secret lifeform that protects the center of the galaxy like its a huge secret. 10/10 game though I really wish that there was some kind of sandbox mode when you beat the game.

Game is amazing! I have been playing this game since I was around 10 years old.
Even now it's still got good graphics (I think they are amazing, even now they are still good)

9/10. I take 1 off just because I think they could have improved parts of the game, mainly in the civilization stage, it is a bit too easy.

For the record, my hours with this game with the GA expansion are DISPROPORTIONATELY HUGE compared to what's being shown here. Like, 600+ hours.

Absolutely love this game, I never stop coming back to play it.
I will admit, when I first got this game, oh, 4-ish years ago, I was expecting a tad bit more out of it than I saw. Then again, Spore, in and of itself was an INCREDIBLY ambitious game in its early stages. It's not the perfect, all-encompassing game some, like me, might hope it to be, but it is incredibly fun and incredibly challanging on the higher difficulties, ESPECIALLY in space, which is pretty much nigh impossible to completely "finish", lest you have no life whatsoever. It's nice and kid-friendly with the cartoonish creature designs, and the quick gameplay up to the space stage is a boon for casual gamers. But for those of us seeking to conquer the galaxy, and get the real sense of action and adventure, the space stage has enough alien genocides, nuclear explosions, and planet busting for even the most hardcore 4X strategy gamer. It's an enjoyable game with a nice mix of everything and quite a few challenges mixed in. If nothing else, play it for the space stage; probably the best, least mundane part of the game.

The DLCs add some nice features as well; the new adventure feature in Galactic Adventures adds an interesting new level of complexity and depth to the already complex space stage, and makes nice use of the creature properties you all thought were going to be useless after the creature stage.

Side note, FINALLY managed to make a decent-looking human with the in-game parts - a painful ordeal, to be sure.

Oh, and make sure not to ♥♥♥♥ off the Grox if you like your ♥♥♥ where it is.

'SPORE' is a game where you start off crash landed from a meteor into a planet and you're trying to grow from your tiny bacteria to a large galactic nation. You play through multiple stages and choose how your civilization progresses.

Pros:

-You can play this through more then once and will get a different outcome
-You get to customize nearly EVERYTHING to your liking
-Can keep you occupied for hours
-Runs well


Cons:

-Some evoloution stages are extremly short
-Galactic stage is the longest by far and I wished the others were made longer
-No autosave so if the game DOES crash you're doomed

This game is so amazing in just about every way. The Creature Editor is clever and innovative, the Phases feel just long enough to keep each section short and sweet, and the gameplay never gets old. Here, in the perfect game, there is still one huge issue: No Sequel.
