Nelie - Spore is a game where you control the evolution of a creature. You start off as a tiny cell like creature you can be a hunter and hunt other creatures for meat, or a plant eater and find plant material to eat.
The more you eat the more you grow (Millions of years pass of course) and you collect things to add on to your creature to make it more advance. (like legs or different eyes or mouth parts.) as you evolve you leave the water and walk on land, here it's the same story on a larger scale, you hunt for food...try not to become food...and find more advanced part to evolve your species.
You make friends or enemies with other species by communicating. the more evolved your species is...the better your communication works. "I wanna be your friend" Or "Stay away or we'll attack!" or you can just totally over take them and eat them if you're a meat eater.
You get points for all of this and then you evolve again, into a tribe. You need to make friends with other tribes by learning to make music, tools, and domesticate animals. Here you pick if your "people" are military, religious, or neutral (agricultural/ economic).
Long story short you evolve again.
Civilization...you make vehicles, if you're a religious people you make vehicles that help convert... if military, you make them to help you forcefully take over. The economic make vehicles to help transport and trade goods.
At this point the game becomes a lot like Dune...or Civlizations... you make troops or priests (depending), land/air/water vehicles and you "convert"/"Take over" other cities until you have whole world domination. You can do this by force...or buying out another city, or joining forces.
You evolve again
Galactic. Your people learn to travel in space. There are a few enemies you have to fight but the main goal is to populate planets, bring back alien life form (animal or plant) to study and to mine for goods.
I'm at this point in the game so I'm not sure what the magnitude of everything you can do here is.
There is literally, countless forms your species can take. You have full
control of everything from body color to body shape.. wings, beaks, feet..hair..clothes. you control what their homes look like... you make the vehicles and the boats and the space ships. You create the national anthem for your people. The game is HUGE so make sure your computer can pull it. My laptop and pull it, bit only just...
It's super simple, but high addicting the missions are challenging but not so hard that you want to give up. Look it up on Youtube for a taste, I've seen people make some crazy creatures and ships.
It looks hard...but it's not. I taught myself everything about the game. They have pretty good in-game tutorals and they are great and easy.
- Cell stage
- a taste of how to make creatures.
- Tribal stage
- how to make vehicles
As for me...I'm a gamer...totally. I'm not really into first person shoot 'em up games. I'm more into Final Fantasy...I'm played 7-12 not 11 though. And I can't wait for 13 to come out next year. Kingdom Hearts...Fable II Spore, Sims (computer and playstation) Zelda, Sonic, Mario everything. Assassin's creed is great i can't wait to get the second one (it's sold out everywhere) -_-) My BF is playing Fallout 3, Assassin's creed...Two different Prince of Persia Games, Dead space, Bioshock, Wolfenstein, Lord of the Rings Conquest.
