The parents' guide to what's in this app.

Ease of Play

It's best not to read the instructions first; the number of options are too overwhelming. Jumping in with tutorial tips turned on soon teaches you how to tilt to move your creature across beach, desert, forest and mountain zones and interact with other animals.


Creatures can battle each other with mighty roars, attack with poisoned projectiles, all in the name of survival)

What parents need to know

Parents need to know that this was an expensive app (6.99) but the price was slashed due to complaints. Kids can create a creature and see how it evolves. Kids can fight or socialize.

I didn't know this was an app.

Is it any good?

You're a prehistoric bug, navigating beautiful but hostile landscapes while growing new body parts and social skills to survive. That's Spore Creatures, a great adventure game that encourages critical thinking and wild evolutionary leaps. The aerial graphics are breathtaking, and customizing your creature with 45 different body parts - legs, eyes and shells - is pure fun. Funky atmospheric music and bug sounds will keep you happily evolving.
