Spore Origins is out now on the N-Gage platform

EA's life simulator Spore Origins is now available through the N-Gage application, just open it on your phone, go to the Showroom tab, select "Options" and then "Update Now". Alternatively select "See All Games". You can see a list of N-Gage-compatible phones (and more about the platform) on All About N-Gage's FAQ page.

Read on in the full article.

Just tested the demo and I'm dissapointed.
It's just like a remake of their java version with N-gage points system and better graphics.

Being a single player it doesn't represent N-gage well either. Dissapointed over it.

What seriously? Why would I sign up to eamobile to use it online?
Having played the java version it looks completely the same and worse of all,
the controls were also sluggish and that was in the menu. Graphics looked good though. Used a N95 to try the demo.

it as online mode 1v1 i'm told but its horrible process registering with ea just to use it
i'm buying now and i'll report back how i find it and its features


edit
after trying game i dont think it as online battles its just spore sharing i think
although to tell the truth i have no idea how to even use the arena feature
its all a big mess
having to register at eamobile to get code before you can go in arena is a big fail

Not specifically related to Spore, but it's nice to see N-Gage getting a more regular release schedule. There haven't been huge gaps between releases like there were earlier in the spring.

And there are some very promising games coming soon:

Blades & Magic (next gen N-gage's first proper RPG)
Creebies (exclusive Animal Crossing / Sims type game)
Dance Fabulous (exclusive dancing game using your own music)
Galaxy On Fire (Elite / Wing Commander style space simulator)
Mega Monsters (exclusive 3D Rampage-style godzilla game)
Million Dollar Poker (N-Gage version will have six player online mode)
Powerboat Challenge (speedboat sim)
Rally Master Pro (unofficial WRC sim)
Snowboard Hero (well, it's snowboarding!)
Tiger Woods PGA Tour (golf)
Tomb Raider Underworld (if you don't know, don't ask)
Yamake (exclusive make-your-own-game title)

Also, there is a Sims 3 which should be released soon, given that mobile and iPhone versions are coming out on June 2nd.

Good point Sandy, I'd forgotten about that.

Hope Sims 3 is better than Sims 2 Pets, that was absolutely awful on N-Gage. Good graphics and interface but absoutely no content at all.

Tome Rider and Sim3 shouldn't on the mega list...

Don't expect anything from EA...
