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.

Not many hours show because i used to play Spore when it wasn't on steam.
It is still an amazing game and was definetly ahead for its time. I would still recommend it and if you haven't bought it yet, you should. It's an amazing experience.

Spore is a great game. I got it a month ago, and now I LOVE the game, especially it's creature creator. The expansions make the game even better and I have made lots of creatures to expand my universe. I would 100% recommend the game. Buy it now.

this game is odd. Many ♥♥♥♥♥ creations, ♥♥♥♥♥♥ creations and other wacky ♥♥♥♥♥♥♥t await you on planet adlifbadlfujgew with the adfp;aouhfouh-ites and the adfp;aouhfouh space empire. See this planet? Screw this planet? Is the acdfghjlk empire harrasing you? Murder them all the lazy ♥♥♥ way by installing orbital defense guns around your outpost in their home system, then when they least expect it, nuke the crap outta them. Then, make the most humanlike creatures you can, put them into tribal mode, discover them with the adfp;aouhfouh-ites and take them to earth. Yes, you can find Earth in this universe. Then do what less than 1% of the Spore community has done and actually complete the space stage.

Spore is a great game. I've been playing for over 24 hours now in total across Spore and Spore: Galactic Adventures. You start off as a cell, evolve into higher level species and eventually become a spacefaring civilization. I've learned a few different things about the game that I feel newer players could have use of knowing.

  • Evolve your creature to max in the creature stage if you plan on playing with Galactic Adventures. You will be using creature stage abilities a lot here, better make sure that it becomes as easy as possible for you.
  • Save often. Spore crashes occasionally, and with the immersiveness of the game, it's easy to forget to save. Spore does NOT have auto-save functionality.
  • One more thing that a lot of people miss: BACK UP YOUR SPORE DATA FOLDERS! I had the game suddenly delete all my progress in Spore without any warning. I don't know the programming logic that would result in such a thing happening, but when I launched Spore yesterday, I was greeted with the main menu with no saves in it. Luckily I already had an older backup of the data as I copied it for playing on another computer once, but I've lost a lot of progress.

Spore data folders may be found at
%appdata%\Spore
as well as "My Spore Creatures" in your Documents folder. Back them up regularly.

Since I've played a little bit, let me tell you why it's awesome:
In General
  • The game has multiple stages: Cell stage, Creature Stage, Tribal Stage, Civilization Stage, and Space stage.
  • You can make friends and enemies
  • YOU CAN KILL EVERYONE
  • You can befriend everyone <3 (at least until you get into the civ stage, where everyone hates you)
  • The video above this review makes this game look nothing like it actually is.
  • 3 Different levels of difficulties: Easy, Normal, and Hard.

Cell stage
  • EAT EVERYTHING AS AN OMNIVORE. EVERYTHIIING!!!!
    *OR*
  • Eat just plants as an herbivore.
  • Eat just meat as a carnivore
  • What you decide to eat is what you eat for the rest of the game. You can also put on herbivore and carnivore mouths on to eat things other than what you mostly ate in the cell stage
  • BECOME THE MOST MONSTROUS SPERM CELL TO EVER EXIST
  • Eat things for DNA points.

Creature Stage
  • ♥♥♥♥♥ monsters.
  • You can literally make almost anything you want.
  • Kill things or socialize with things for dna points to customize your creature.

Tribal Stage
SPOILER IF YOU PLAY THIS ON A CARNIVORE RUN ON HARD, PREPARE YOUR ♥♥♥♥ FOR A LONG GAME OF WAR
  • Food is the new DNA. Run out of food and you're screwed. I'm almost certain that being an herbivore is easier
  • Kill people and destroy their tribes to add to your totem pole
  • Befriend people and add them to your totem pole
  • Hate everyone because they are ALWAYS ♥♥♥♥ING ATTACKING YOU


Civilization Stage
  • Laugh at everyone when you destroy or take over their cities
  • Laugh at everyone who accepts your cheap buy offers
  • Hate every ♥♥♥♥♥♥♥ military city
  • Place building in your cities in any way you want to.

Space Stage
  • Have no idea what you are doing
  • Find out what to do
  • Become the second largest empire in the galaxy
  • Have more money than you know what to do with
  • Kill everyone
  • Befriend everyone

Thats about all I have to say about this game. Enjoy!

Started a game.
Got to Space.
Messed around the Creature Creator and made mistakes.
Hooman was born.
Got back to first game.
Met Hooman.
Hooman hates me.
I wonder if it knows I made it so ugly.
Got killed by my own creation.

10/10

Serious review under here.
I used to play this game all the time on a friend's computer. It was my favourite game.
The Summer Steam Sale comes along and I found this gem again.
There is so much stuff to do, it's awesome.
The graphics are okay until you make your own creatures and plants. Then they will pop everywhere and you will have forests of poorly made plants (I'm not saying you can't make good stuff. But you will mostly mess around, and you will be surrounded by your mistakes).
Controls are kinda confusing for me.
But the concept and gameplay is so worth it.
