If you haven’t heard, EA’s most highly anticipated game, Spore, has hit store shelves today.

The game they chose was Spore, and they managed to get 18 levels ready in two weeks.

Now that Spore for the PC & Mac has been released, EA has simultaneously released Spore Origins for the iPhone and iPod touch. Spore Origins, priced at $9.99, focuses on the early stages of Spore gameplay, consisting of the Evolution and Survival gameplay modes, which span 30 levels.
