(The sins of tekmosis' DARK PAST gets it in the nads)
To prepare for the launch of the new Wii and DS editions of Spore later this October 6th, Electronic Arts releases the new online "Spore Creature Creator 2D". It's essentially a Flash mini-game version of their original Spore Creature Creator, but free and in (surprise!) 2D.
In addition to allowing users to create their own atrocities from the ground up online, Spore Creature Creator 2D links to the user-contributed Sporepedia database so users can import existing Spore critters for their own twisted desires. Seeing how your 3D Spore creations (assuming you have any left after the great copyright culling at the hands of EA) translate into 2D flash is probably half the fun, though be prepared to be charged with nightmare fuel in the process.
The Spore Creature Creator 2D includes 250 different body parts (ewww) for budding Spore enthusiasts to play with, and users can then put their creations to the test in the Creature Trainer mini-game.
