Expansion packs add new features to the pre-existing original game, Spore. Currently, there are three main expansion packs that have been named Spore Galactic Adventures, Spore Creepy & Cute Parts Pack and limited-edition add-on, Spore Bot Parts Pack.
There are parts packs, which can be used with either Spore or Spore Creature Creator. Parts Packs include new body parts for creatures in the Creature Creator, as well as paint scripts, preview animations, and test drive backgrounds. The only purchasable Parts Pack is Spore Creepy & Cute. Expansion Packs (not to be confused with Parts Packs) increase gameplay depth, adds new features like creators and stages (not in the current ones). Expansion Packs can only be played with the original game or the special box (same game, just with extras in the box). The only expansion pack is Spore Galactic Adventures.
