Climb the evolutionary ladder with the Windows Phone game Sparkle 2 Evo, this week's myAppFree deal

Sparkle 2 Evo is a game of survival for our Windows Phone that has you rising up from the primordial goo as a tiny aquatic creature and progress up the evolutionary ladder.

The evolutionary path has several options including becoming an aggressive carnivore, a sluggish herbivore or an omnivore, which is described as something in between a carnivore and herbivore. The game include 15 levels of play and plenty of boss-like battles to fight.

Available for low-memory Windows Phone, Sparkle 2 Evo normally runs $2.99 but through the myAppFree deal, you can pick it up for free over the next 24 hours.

In playing Sparkle 2 Evo for just a short time, it does have a certain level of appeal about it. Game play is a little on the psychedelic side that has your young creature swimming around in a kaleidoscope of colors and patterns. In a nutshell, you swim around eating just about everything in sight and watch your single cell organism grow.

Sparkle 2 Evo Challenge Game

You can use a series of on-screen commands to guide Sparkle around the goop or use your Windows Phone tilt controls to guide it from meal to meal. I will say that either control method takes a little time to get used to.

There are two gaming modes with Sparkle 2 Evo. The recreational mode is more of a free-play style where you grow and develop your Sparkle. You also have a competitive mode where the goal is to beat your opponent (computer) by consuming more microelements.

Sparkle 2 Evo GenLab

There is a GenLab available to monitor your Sparkle's development through DNA analysis and you can pattern your creature's development by what you eat to determine if they become a carnivore, herbivore or omnivore. If you want to grow and develop each type of Sparkle, the game supports seven player profiles.

Sparkle 2 Evo does make a nice first impression. Graphics are nice, game play challenging and overall Sparkle 2 Evo comes across as an entertaining casual Windows Phone game. The Windows Phone game normally runs $2.99 but through the myAppFree deal, you can pick it up for free over the next 24 hours.

Sparkle 2 Evo is currently rated at 4.5 Stars in the Store, which is about right, and if you try Sparkle 2 Evo remember to rate the game in the Store. It is an easy way to give constructive feedback to the developer.

Please Note that while the myAppFree deal is reflected in the Windows Phone Store for Sparkle 2, it may take a little while before it appears in the myAppFree Windows Phone app.

  • Good design
  • Reminds me of an old old flash game, swim around eating orbs and creatures composed of orbs. Wish I could remember the name...
  • Flow is the name of that game. This is an exact copy.
  • Dang that game was great
  • Isn't it spore the game you mean?
  • Flow came before Spore.
  • Flow. Such a memory of that game
  • Spore came out 2 years after flOw. Spore wasn't much fun at all (flOw was!) and to this day remains my single biggest gaming purchase regret.
  • Yeah flOw was great! You can still play or download it from here http://www.jenovachen.com/flowingames/flowing.htm
  • Good. Such things should only exist in games.
  • What?
  • Sounds a lot like Spore. Any connection between the two games?
  • I was thinking the same thing, I spent loads of time playing that game.
  • Also very similar to Flow (released on PSP).
  • Spore was heavily inspired by flOw (note capital O not F) that came out early 2006. It was an online flash game and you can play or download it here: http://www.jenovachen.com/flowingames/flowing.htm It was later ported to the PS3... not sure about PSP though
  • Ah yes, that's the one I played on PSP back in the day!
  • "Item not available"
  • I'm studying biology and I love it :D
  • My store gives it rating of 1.5 stars. Somehow I doubt that because the game looks like fun times. Downloading now.
  • Not really lovin the controls...
  • I didn't like the game, honestly, but surely a lot of people may love it, I'm just thankful that it was free so I could try it
