"First conceived for PC, Spore is one ambitious game. Sims creator Will Wright dreamt up the evolution-based game and it's been in development for several years. In early 2007 it was confirmed the game would also be made for DS and mobile platforms (along with rumours of a PSP version, which haven't been substantiated since).
How exactly the game would work on handheld platforms wasn't explained, though. So until we got hands on with Spore Creatures on DS this week, we were in the dark as to how such a massive title – which starts you off as a microbe at the very beginning of life and culminates in a galactic phase that has you pinging about space in a UFO – would work on Nintendo's handheld."
