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

Review this title!

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.
