Spore Creatures_ iPhone 2EA's Spore Creatures is the sequel to Spore Origins [99¢ / Free], one of the very early big-name games to be released on the App Store. While Origins hasn't exactly aged well, Spore Creatures takes a similar tilt to move and eat stuff mechanic and adds a considerable layer of depth to nearly all aspects of the game.

As obvious by the screenshots, this game takes place on land and you will need to evolve to move rocks or otherwise interact with the environment, socialize with other creatures, and fight bosses among other things. Along the way your creature will evolve getting new body parts which can be added to your infinitely customizable creature.

The following video shows the creature builder as well as eating and socializing with some friendly crabs:

It's hard to say how much allure the Spore brand name even has anymore, but if you enjoyed the first game, you will likely have just as much fun evolving a new creature on land. Spore Creatures is also part of EA's holiday lineup, and should be released soon.

    don't know what type of the game it is...

    Could be similar to http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/E.V.O. on the old SNES? Anyone played both games who can comment on that? I LOVED E.V.O on the SNES.

    Who cares about that overrated brand anymore?

      The brand was innovative but short of the sky-high expectations. The brand doesn’t interest me—the game play does. I’ll buy this for the game (if reviews lead me to that), not for the name.

    Am I the only one who really likes this iPhone genre? :P

    The biggest reason the first one was so disappointing was because people were comparing it to the full Spore game, but for a casual gamer like me, Spore Origin hits just the spot. ;)

    I played the first game, and it was expensive and CRAPTASTIC. You'd better spend your money buying shares in Enron.

    I didn't like Spore Origins all that much. Was basically a lengthy version of first stage made into a full game. While the DS, on the other hand, were spoiled with slightly better stuff. However, Creatures was a DS exclusive title, as far I know, so it looks like things are even now.
