''Spore Creatures is a handheld spin-off of EA's highly anticipated Spore for PC (and later, consoles). Instead of attempting to emulate Will Wright's massively scoped project, this DS title is an adventure game set in the Spore universe.
The game's premise is straightforward enough. You play as a newly-hatched slug creature named Oogie, who can be augmented with a variety of mouths, arms, legs, and other appendages using a simplified version of the creature creator. Attaching parts allows you to attack, increase your defense or mobility, or improve your social abilities. Your creature can be altered at any nest (save point). In the full game you collect better parts as you progress, but the E3 demo provided many parts to fool around with. I played through the tutorial, designed to familiarize players with the many menu options and icons found in the game. Your sister slug, who acts as your guide during this sequence, is suddenly abducted by an evil alien flying in a UFO, providing the game's plot. Oogie eventually explores a variety of planets in his adventure.''
