Apple Games Features Spore Galactic Adventures
6:00 AM | Cord Kruse | Comment on this story

Apple Games' latest feature article takes to the stars for an examination of Galactic Adventures, the first expansion for the evolution focused god sim, Spore. Designed to expand the original game's universe, Spore Galactic Adventures delivers new adventures to players who can now become their own space captain, beam down to strange new planets, and create customized adventures. Apple's article includes and overview of the expansion's features and a guide for using mission creation tools.

A mission features a storyline with up to eight acts, each containing three goals ó the tone can be serious, silly, or somewhere in between, and the goals can involve anything from simple tasks to major battles. You could even create a mission thatís an arcade game, complete with a maze, objects to collect, and enemies to avoid. And if you see an adventure in the SPOREpedia that you think could use a few tweaks, feel free to make some changes and share your version with the SPORE community.

Each mission also stars a space captain, who can be a unique creation or a character drawn from the SPOREpedia. The captain beams down to a planet, with or without a crew in tow, and earns SPORE Points for completing the adventure, bringing him closer to a new rank. Each rank attained unlocks new accessories and weapons, such as the powerful Energy Blade or the ever-useful Jetpack. As in the main gameís space stage, your captain follows a specific path, such as trader or warrior, with appropriate accessories and weapons unlocked along the way.

At the end of an adventure, you can compare your captainís performance against other players on the leader board, where the top three earn gold, silver, and bronze medals. (If someone bests your score, youíll lose your medal.) Galactic Adventures also ships with over 50 new achievements to accomplish, so get ready to explore strange new worlds, seek out new life and new civilization, and boldly go where no captain has gone before.
