EA releases Spore Origins for Click Wheel iPods

Electronic Arts has released its Spore Origins game for the fifth-generation iPod, iPod classic, and iPod nano (video). Previously shown during Apple events as an iPhone and iPod touch game, Spore Origins lets users create and control their own virtual life form, growing from a single-cell organism into a more complex being as the game progresses.

Features include four games modes, 18 levels, and six unique worlds, and the ability to import spores from the iPod for use on the Sporepedia website. Electronic Arts’ Spore Origins is available now on the iTunes Store and sells for $5.
