SPORE™ Galactic Adventures

Maxis, a division of Electronic Arts Inc. (Proprietary)

Spore: Galactic Adventures is an expansion pack of the adventure-strategy game Spore. It is created by the company, Maxis and features the Adventure Creator, which enables players to come up with their own missions. Once these missions are made, they are moved to the Space stage and supplied with various elements by the players through a drag-and-drop approach. They can also get elements from other editors to populate the world. The creatures’ personalities can be altered by setting them from friendly to aggressive and players can also add speech balloons to express their characters. Various gameplay items such as explosives and teleporting devices can be incorporated to the game.

The player controls the character of a space captain whose tasks include interacting with other creatures, obtaining items for them, making them friends or enemies, and many others. The player can also recruit crewmembers from allies, so having diplomatic relations with them is also crucial to the player’s success. Through the Planet Creator, players can also mold new environments, create themed villages, as well as add music and special effects. Goals can be assigned to individual crewmembers, and the player determines the method in which the characters accomplish the goals. The Captain Outfitter feature of the game customizes the abilities and attributes of the creatures.
