I hope I am not too dumb. The new game Spore comes with almost no directions.
When I play as a herbivore, I do pretty well. As a cell, I find lots of green stuff and rapidly get to the nest (“creature”) level. I quickly get to the first sentience thing, I even find meteor bits for bonus parts. Life as a herbivore cell is good.
(The trick is to get very fast. Speed is life.)
So I cranked it up to the middle difficulty level and to carnivore. Life is not so good here. I get to the first sentience level. I gain an electric buzzer. With this I can actually hunt, the red spiky guys are suckers for an electric shock. I eat, I eat, I find mates, and I find I do not have enough DNA to buy new parts.
How do I gain DNA in the cell stage?
It seems I can never get to the creature stage for some reason. I am stalled.
