Achievements are received by performing certain tasks during the game, or by the popularity of the player's creations. There are 100 achievements to earn throughout Spore gameplay (not including Bad Baby! and Luddite which are no longer achievable), and the expansion pack Spore Galactic Adventures provides 50 more achievements.

Using some cheats will disable earning achievements during the game.

Removed Achievements Edit

The following achievements were deleted. They are unachievable even with an unpatched game
Original Section Image Title Description
Hidden Achievements Bad Baby! Bad Baby! Have one of your assets banned. This achievement has been removed as of patch #2 due to unpopularity in the Spore community. (But profiles that already got this achievement should still have it.)
Cut Achievements Luddite Destroy over 150 tool shacks of enemy tribes. This achievement was cut for unknown reasons

Glitches Edit

  • There is a known bug that causes cheating to block all future games from getting achievements. Note that Pathological Cheater is the only achievement that you gain by cheating.

Trivia Edit

  • Most of the creatures in the Achievement pictures have three eyes.
  • All progress for achievements yet to be gained is saved in the pollination.package data file, which also contains all downloaded creations. Deletion of this file or re-installing the game will reset progress. This includes which archetypes were used for the two Alter Ego achievements.
  • The background color for each achievement picture shows which stage the achievement is associated with.
