remember playing Creatures
when I was young, and it was a brilliant adventure and introduction to life and biology, even if I was too busy gorging them on aphrodisiac tomatoes
and fatty carrots
. I remember crying when they died, and rejoicing when one was born, just like real
pets! I never really got into the game, often allowing the population to soar to maximum, and then teleporting the ones I didn't like out to free up some space. Oh yes, the teleport mechanism, which was supposed
to be used for E-mailing your friend your Norn... I remember I hatched a male and a female Norn, and then when they were older, I teleported them out, copied their files, and then imported all of them in. Voila! Instant clones! (Can't remember if any of them were more depressed than any of the others...
) Yes, for virtual pet lovers and Evilutionary Biologists
to be, Creatures is a 4 out of 5 stars rating!
