Cute, entertaining, slick and engaging – just a few words to describe the slimline version of EA’s Spore on the iPhone. While you don’t get to see your hand-crafted creature make it out of the primordial ooze, you’ll still have a great time evolving it as you accrue more points that allow you to add teeth, fins, etc. Control is primarily via the accelerometer, with tilting allowing you to move your Spore around and eat or avoid others. When evolving your beast you can use gestures to squeeze and pinch the creature into shape, and drag new items into its evolutionary arsenal. The promise of new upgrades and the chance to turn from hunted to hunter are more than enough reasons to come back to this game time and time again.
