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.

I CAN NOT FIX YOUR ECOSYSTEM COLLAPSE EVERY 5 MINUTES. FIX IT YOURSELF, I HAVE MY OWN PROBLEMS.

Other than that, a fun game. 7/10

Ok so, after some years I remembered about this game I used to play when I was a pirate kid, with no money, so now I decided to give something back and buy it for all the time it gave me pleasure and satisfaction as a kid.

I went from cell to galactic adventurer in one sitting gameplay, and I was like :" that's it? only 5 hours of Spore then you've finished it?!"... I was dissapointed when I went to galactic stance, because I thought that was the end... Ow boy I was so wrong...

This game is humongous, incredible more complex than I ever thought. After you've dominated your planet, you start a new type of gameplay, something simmilar to Stellaris, but far more enjoyable, because you can actualy go on each planet, in each star of the galaxy (except gas planets). And the galaxy? It's huge... how huge? Incredible huge. I though I will be able to visit just the stars in my vecinity, but no, you can jump from star to star, discover different types of dominant races, some are peacefull, some are warmongers. You will be able to forge alliances and wage wars with others, make trade treaties, buy solar systems, evolve your tech, colonize planets, and more.

I regret now that I haven't bought this game years ago, because I could have spent a lot more time enjoying it.

Even if it's only a Single player game, it will be enjoyable because of the AI alien races, some imported from other player's creations (awsome, right, you get to fight with a race made by somebody else, in their single player mode).

No downsides, game is very complex and appealing, I strongly recommend it with all my heart :D

I played this game endlessly before I bought it on Steam, and clearly I think it's one of the best. If you don't have this game, I am going to give you the bias opinion that you need to own it and at least try it.

First off, my hours spent playing this game do NOT represent my true hours in this game. I've probably got thousands of hours in since release.


I did however, recently come back to it after perhaps a year off.

Went from cell stage all the way to space stage. Conquered a few systems, allied with a few more. Played God on a few others.
Advanced to the center of the galaxy, and annoyed one of my previous stages in that area. Proceeded to go to war with them... completely forgetting that I waged war with, and defeated the Grox with that Empire.

Naturally, I got absolutely obliterated.

10/10, would lose a war with myself again.

Aight so.

ya start off as a meteor crashin down harder than drama alert and somehow... a little sperm cell pops out. you is now that sperm cell and you is gonna eat stuff until you decide, " HEW... im gonna grow some lungs legs and all features possible for a creature to live and breath on land" ~sperm cell stage

Reet so now yav got ya legs and yee wanna start either killin everything in sight, or f***in dancin around wif some ♥♥♥♥♥ shaped... thing. then ya ganna get ditched by ya scwod and yer gonna have to find a new place to live for nee reason. ya gonna move cribs 3 times before ya can moove on and ya gonna look more demented each time ya hach oot an egg becuz thats how evolution works. ~fun ♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥ creaure stage

now ya gonna pick up a stick and say "HEW... Ima make this crib LIT" so ya then gonna start breaking tha rulz and set the place ablaze and start making some fishin spears and axes and all that fun stuff so you can go and make some friends with the other tribes but that aint ganna werk cos half of them alredy hate you cos you used code KEEM to get yersel a discount on garden gnomes ~the hard stage

tribal stage but with first world problems like being hated by north korea~the stage that the devs got bored on

Now yav got a rocket ship garn and yer off into space. yer gonna find this stage propa kool but arnly if ya pick up the galactic adventures pack off a steam summer sale cos that means ya can still use yer little dude ya made back in the 'im gonna spend 6 hours playing with the creature creator' stage. then ya ganna meet the evil space bunnies and only you candecide your fate from there...

10/10 would spend 30 hours messing around with legs again

Spore is a brilliant, mysterious galaxy, full of mystery and an endless range of creatures. xD
