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

Was interested in trying out this title right away. The colors and microbes, they all look so delicious. Was able to get 100% within 3 hours. I had to get used to the way you control your microbe. Very cool how they evolve. Now if they came out with custom skins, Change the microbe to myself, The food into cheeseburgers..and the atmosphere into the cosmos. lolol. Anyways...Buy & Win.

Cool indie game,not something ''big'' but a good enjoyable game.
It has some nice colours,this makes this game more interesting but all you have to do
is to try to consume some other species so you can get bigger,get more power so
you can keep going to other harder levels.The colours,the light and generally the effects
in this game are so good that they will make you sleep!

It's fun for a few hours, but nothing special.

English:This game is super chill with relaxing music and beautiful art design of organisms and environment. The reason why I recommend this game is that this game cost me 0.49$ during the discount and I found myself pretty enjoying this game for its relaxing gameplay. The game isn't hard and it takes me less than 3 hours to beat it with all achievements.
I would rate 10/10 because this game perfectly presents its goal of extrodinary relaxing gameplay experience.
中文:超放松的一款游戏,你所做的就是扮演一个微生物不断的吃东西来进化,环境和生物因为都是半透明的所以感觉特别的漂亮也特别的有感觉,其次当初这游戏我是0.5刀入的,3小时不到全成就完成,所以我觉得是非常值这个价格,最后因为这游戏本身的目的就是放松的游戏体验,所以我认为是一款值得喜欢这类游戏的人去尝试的一次微观体验。

Un très joli petit jeu plein de couleur dans une ambiance très aquatique. Rien de bien folichon dans le fait de manger des balles de couleur, mais les évolution sont marrantes et la musique est sympa. La difficulté est à mon sens faible ce qui en fait un jeu à la fois relaxant et fascinant.

Un bon petit moment à expérimenter s'il sort à petit prix.

This game is super, super... supppeeerr borrrrrinnng.

It's like the game was made to make you bored, that was the only goal of it.
It's repetitive, you do the same thing over and over (collect the blobs or whatever of the same colour) and at the end get stuck at the "boss" level because of janky camera/organism movement (this game should've been made in 2D, not 3D so that wouldn't be such a pain in the back)

Why would you get this?
- Uh, on a sale, maybe? Because of the low price?
- To look at the glowy, fancy looking organisms and such?

I don't know, maybe for the music? I'm sorry but in my opinion the game is too boring to be recommended.

In this game you need to grind food in three different colors.

That's it.

Ah, no wait! It gets more difficult with each level. So you have to eat 28 pieces in one level and the next it's 42. Amazing concept!

I thought it would be like the game FlOw from ThatGameCompany. It isn't. It's just a collect-a-ton, with no challenge, no rush, no purpose and no fun.

Very pretty, but that doesn't excuse the fact that it's boring. Sorry.

I'm a microbe in Enya's gut! While she dreams of a threesome with John Tesh and Kenny G.

Sparkle 2 Evo is the Paris Hilton of games ... pretty, but pointless.

WTF WTF WTF HOW THE HELL DO YOU CHOOSE A EATING PATH WHEN THE CREATURE WILL ONLY EAT THE STUFF YOU DON'T WANT IT TO EAT AND WILL NOT TOUCH THE ONES THAT YOU WANT IT TO EAT WTF WTF WTF WTF HOW THE HELL CAN YOUGET IT TO GO WHERE YOU WANT WHEN IT MOVES FORWARD WHENEVER YOU WANT IT TO TURN AROUND.

THERE IS A JUICY PIECE OF MEAT BEHIND YOU AND WHEN YOU TELL IT TO GO BACKWARDS IT ZOOMS FORWARD AND EATS UP EVERY MORSAL OF GREEN AND BLUE THERE IS BEFORE MISSING THE RED ENTIRELY EVEN WHEN YOU A PLACING THE CURSOR OVER THE PIECE YOU WANT TO EAT.

OH AND THAT IS ANOTHER THING THE GAME F*****G MOVES AROUND WHILE YOU ARE STAYING STILL HOW THE F**K CAN ANY DEVELOPER THINK THAT THIS IS A GOOD GAME?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!

IT LOOKS GOOD ON PAPER BUT THE GAMEPLAY IS LACKING IN AN AREA THAT SHOULD BE BLINDINGLY OBVIOUS: THE CREATURE FOLOWS THE CURSOR ONCE IT HAS EATEN EVERYTHING THAT YOU DON'T WANT IT TO EAT!!!!

I like how this game is 5 dollars, yet it says it has controller support (that doesn't work) and is not fun to play at all. -1/10, Would not eat dust for five minutes again.

It's pretty looking for 5 min. It's too boring to play for longer. It's like a bad version of Snake because it's really hard to turn. Just play Snake instead of this. It's not even worth it to buy it when it's on sale.

it looks pretty. sound is good. gameplay.. meh. somewhat similar to spore first stage , or a 3D snake game :D.
i got bored after 1 hour or so. get it only if you're farming steam achievements, even then when on sale. not worth its 5 $ price.
