Spore Origins for Nano 4G

A new clickwheel edition of EA's Spore Origins has been released at the iTunes Store, updated to support the fourth-generation iPod nano. The game now takes advantage of the Nano 4G's accelerometer, allowing players to control their character through tilting, much like in the iPhone/iPod touch title. Owners of the unpatched game should receive an e-mail informing them that the update is now in their iTunes Store download queue.

Players take an organism through 18 different levels, hunting for food and evading predators, with the eventual goal of evolving into a more complex lifeform. The software is $5 new, and is compatible only with video-capable clickwheel iPods.

    Ya, but...

    But what about the 1 gen iPod? Ok, just kidding. But I dont think I have seem one game available on so many version of the iPod. At least not a game that evolved with the iPods.

    Is this game different than the one for the iPhone? I ask because I'm presently stuck on lvl 31 on the iPhone game (the one where you try to get fish to attack a really big predator to make food for you).

    OS-X nano OS-X in the new nano and classic identical to what's in the touch and iPhone (same bells and whistles...just hardware differences)? I cannot find this info anywhere. Hopefully they'll put OS-X in the shuffle, too, lol.
