EA has launched a 2D version of the Spore Creature Creator to promote the upcoming Spore Hero for the Wii, and Spore Hero Arena for the DS. With the flash applet you can create your own creature, using various parts. It's similar to the full 3D version of the Creature Creator, except for the Test Drive mode. This has been changed into a kung-fu game where you train your creature to become great at "Spore-Fu". By swinging your creature's limbs you destroy incoming targets, gain points and proceed through the levels. It's all easy to pick up and get acquainted with. As an added bonus, you can save your creature as PNG file, send an e-card of your creation and even load up your own (or somebody else's) creatures from Sporepedia. The 2D version has 250 body parts to choose from.
