MercuryNews previews Spore Galactic Adventures

But while I watched the creation process, I could clearly see the influence of LittleBigPlanet in the design. The expansion pack has a lot of the traits similar to Sony’s platformer.

On top of that, Maxis will also have its own quests built into the game and while exploring the galaxy, players may run into an alien race that needs their help. Coming to their aid, gives rewards to fans such as new equipment or moves for their creatures.

Warrior races provides new armaments for creatures. Diplomatic races offer moves that help you get along with others. Bard-type aliens offer dance moves like a weird disco celebration.

This is all fine and dandy but where Galactic Adventures one-ups LittleBigPlanet is in its search category. Players can tag their levels with credible labels and the system even categorizes them in helpful groups such as adventures through mazes, etc. Such a flexible system will inevitably help players find an adventure from a plethora of possibilities.
