Neat Spore based game...
« on: February 06, 2006, 09:55:08 pm »
I was browsing the Gamefaqs message boards today and ran across this: http://boards.gamefaqs.com/gfaqs/genmessage.php?board=926714&topic=26228901 and I played it. It turned out to be pretty fun, though very basic seeing as its the first version of it. Hope you all enjoy...

I just get a plain black screen. Is it loading or something?

I was thinking of doing somehting like this but I don't know flash and the programming language I know would not work... too bad. Well, I wouldn't have had the time anyway.

I had to start by holding the left and right arrow together to move.  Not intuitive. 

Definitely makes it look like the early stages of Spore wil be fun though.

In the begining before you get more fins/legs you have to use the tail. So use arrow left then right and left and right.... sorrta like a fish.

actually the complex-looking organ is a fluid jet.  when you press space it propels you forward.  it provides you with bursts of speed, at the cost of a slower cruising speed.

Thats pretty good. Quite addictive. Why is it that when I have the sucky mouth thing after 1 stage it stops working? Oh well.

its pretty fun hunting them down when you can eat them and they seem to be slightly aware of you and try to run sometimes, although I know the movements are entirely random.

Nice game, just needs a bit of a... okay, a massive reworking of the creature's looks, slightly painful to look at, it's like a blueprint on a green background. Not great looking.

But as for the game itself, I'm actually impressed. If I didn't know any better, I would have to say that it looks like a proof of concept for Spore itself, basically to demonstrate some of the raw mechanics, but it isn't. Still, amazing job that guy did, wonder exactly how far it'll go, or if it'll just be contained to the tidepool stage.
Since when is being "normal" a requirement for survival? Exactly.
