Spore Creatures DS is an offshoot of the massively popular Spore for the PC.

While it may not have the vast amount of editing options found it its PC counterpart, as a stand-alone game Spore for the ds contains a surprising amount of depth and enjoyment.

The story starts out with you, a little creature called "Oogie" who barely managed to escape with his friend "Little Oogie" from the terrifying prospect of being beamed aboard an alien spaceship. The characters in the game act like paper doll cutouts. Remember in Paper Mario when Mario would turn around, it was like a piece of paper being flipped over? That's the effect being used here.

Controls are very tight; you can use the stylus or d-pad to move around, and you use the stylus to interact with the environment.
First you need to explore your surrounding area, to try to figure out where to go. Often the way is blocked by a cave, which may be unlocked by solving some story portion, or a body of water(in which case you'll need special legs to get through without dying) or even a boiling hot desert or bubbling lava and you have to find a way to safely get around or go through the hazards to the next area.

Yes, the game can get a bit repetitious -finding a part to get to the next area- and in that respect, it can also be quite linear. However, I had so much fun finding new creatures to befriend to fill up my "Sporopedia", leveling up so I could use more body parts at once, and trying to find out the fate of Little Oogie. The developers did a great job of shaking things up a bit so the game play isn't too tedious and repetitious.

Sometimes you'll have to race a character before he'll give up the leg part you'll need. Other times, it's as simple as saving a creature from a nest of nasties.

I bought Spore Creatures the day it came out and ended up playing until 11 pm at night, when my partner reminded me I had to work the next day. Yes, I'm an adult. I enjoyed Zelda and the Phantom Hourglass, but found it annoying to keep on returning to the same main dungeon. I enjoyed Brain Age, but my mind often isn't sharp enough to be doing tests. I finished Professor Layton and found the puzzles great but the townspeople a bit boring. I enjoyed Nintendogs, but it was a bit limited in gameplay. I absolutely love Spore Creatures. I get to go to different islands and explore, completely design my own creatures - body, eyes, legs, fins, arms, tails - colour, size, angle, texture - with different strengths for each kind of part - whenever I want to at certain parts on the islands. I get to meet new weird-looking species and decide whether to eat them or befriend them. I get to be a carnivore, herbivore, and omnivore depending on which mouth I have at the time. There are 3 profiles. You can save creatures and exchange them through the zoo. I really, really, enjoyed this game. I haven't found it boring yet, but then again, I can play for hours at a time. It is similar to the "creature" phase of the computer Spore game. (From what I've read, the computer Spore game is not as enjoyable, and I'm not sure if that's because there are more adult games available for computer PC, compared to DS games). Anyway, compared to other DS games, this is the best one yet. Off to happily eat a sporeling now!

Spore Creatures is a sub-par game, with an awesome creation mode. The game itself is extremely repetitive and derivative in almost every way. This game is like when a popular movie comes out and they have a trashy tie-in game. This is the first time I have seen a trashy tie-in game for another game.
As the name implies, this game is focused on an extremely limited version of Spore's creature phase. The difference here is that they took this limited creature phase and turned it into something like a RPG-platformer. Unfortunately by making it this type of game it kind of ruins the creation mode. For example you need to use special kinds of legs to get past obstacles. There are swimming legs and legs that let you walk on spikes. In these cases you are forced to switch out the legs you want for the ones to get past an area. It is a minor point but it undermines the 'make a creature the way you want' concept.
To progress you must do missions for the various creatures. As you do missions you get body parts and levels to be able to put more/better parts on your creature. The repetitive missions are befriend/kill all of one type of creature, dig somewhere, or break stuff. That is really just about all you do.
Befriending creatures is super, super lame. You can feed them, but most of the time you will do a call and then either rub the creature like in Endless Ocean: Dive, Discover, Dream or play a wannabe Elite Beat Agents type game.
