Status: Lost

Spore 2D was a flash game based off the 2008 simulation video game, Spore. It was created as attempt to promote the Wii release of the game, Spore Hero. In the "training" section of the game, players could "train" their creature by forcing it to deflect objects shot from totem poles. The more the creature leveled up, the more parts the player would unlock. Players could also drag user-created creatures from the Sporepedia, to be rendered in 2D form.
