Spore Origins, as a single-player experience in any case, evolved the same way, dealing a superior spot to its iPhone incarnation while other iterations fall to the side. Energetic gameplay combined with simple controls and a slick set of features command respect for the definitive single-player portable version of this evolutionary game.

There’s one feature missing, of course. Spore Origins on iPhone has no multiplayer, the importance of which will depend on what it is about the franchise that appeals to you. Nevertheless, even without the option to play with your friends this is an immaculate game.
