Sparkle 3: Genesis is out!

While still full of soothing ambient music and art-like graphics, Sparkle 3 brings lots of new features and possibilities. You will gain much greater control over your evolution and skills you obtain. You no longer only control what you eat, you actively and directly control your DNA and how it expands. We've added quests that greatly diversify the gameplay. You can now choose between simply exploring the Void to relax, and trying on some challenges. New elements of your surroundings. Currents, vortexes, poisonous thicket, will shape the way you play.

There is much more waiting, simply visit the store page:

About This Game

Control the evolution with the touch of your finger. Climb your way through the evolutional ladder. Start as a little organism and transform into a magnificent aquatic being. Explore the abyss in search of nutritional elements. Attack other species whenever you run out of other food sources. Enjoy beautiful surreal visuals and relax with minimalistic ambient soundtrack.

Can you grow the biggest Sparkle in the world?

Subtle, captivating, addictive. These three words describe the world of Sparkle - world in which you make a tiny aquatic creature evolve into becoming a grown, magnificent being.

We give you control over your Sparkle's development and wellbeing, and you have one goal - to evolve. Whilst exploring the Sparkle Void, you find various nutritious elements to eat. Sometimes you will even have to fight for food with other species. You become what you eat - you get to choose whether your sparkle becomes a fast and aggressive carnivore, a sluggish but fast-eating herbivore, or an omnivore, whose features lie somewhere in between. Insight to your Sparkle's DNA strand will give you information about the progress and will help you plan which microelements you want to focus on eating next. You will also get to fight giant bosses from time to time.

But there’s no rush to keep the game in full swing at all times. You may as well just relax, play the game on a slow pace, explore the sparkle void, consume nutritional elements, enjoy simple and surreal surrounding and listen to the ambient music soundtrack. The choice is all yours.


- Three different ways to evolve. Become a fast and agressive carnivore, a sluggish but fast eating herbivore, or an omnivore whose features lie somewhere in between
- Play through 13 dreamlike looking levels.
- Use GenLab to check your Sparkles DNA strand, your progress, status of your special skills, and plan what to eat next accordingly.
- Relax with great chilled-out ambient soundtrack.
- Compete against other Sparkle in fast-paced competitive mode

★★☆☆☆

Sparkle 2 Evo is a casual artistic evolution simulator. Start as a microscopic larva and build your way up the food chain as you evolve based on what you eat.

Pros: Graphics are absolutely gorgeous. The game captures the transparancy of actual microscope observation, while bathing it in a rainbow of colors. Your stats and appearance changes depending on whether you eat carnivore, herbivore or omnivore matter. You get to confront other microbes in a speed and twirl competition, trying to eat out its weak spots while avoiding its head until it's the only thing left. Music is calm and soothing.

Cons: There is no behavior difference between your prey: the exact same creatures simply exists with different colors, making you wonder why a herbivore would eat fish, squids or other animals. You can't die, the extent of risk you face is getting pushed back up one level of depth, or getting a light red glow in the screen if you cannot be pushed up any further. Little replay value: there's a set number of levels with no randomization. There is little complexity over your evolution, and you might accidentally eat matter you wanted to avoid.

Verdict: The game might look and sound exquisite, but there is little more to it. A few hours is all it will take to go through the entire game, do every level and max out your evolution. As it stands, Sparkle 2 Evo doesn't offer enough for me to recommand it.

A fun little game that i had a good time playing. Very cheap, so it is expected for it to be short and sweet. You play as a small bug, that swims around picking up elements to evolve yourself. The more you eat, the bigger and more advanced you become. It is worth the cheap price for a short, but decently entertaining experience.

For the achievment hunters, it took me a total of about 3 hours to gain 100% achievments.

Graphics and music are amazing. The technique and style is brilliant. Gameplay is ok, not too much interesting. It lacks some kind of challenge. You can not die, there is no timer and no enemies or puzzles or anything that would require a little brainpower.

Game: 5.5/10
Graphic: 7.5/10

100% Achievement : Easy | Medium | Hard | Very Hard
