Having a set of Spore cheats to hand will basically allow you to play God, giving you total control over your creations and the world they populate. As well as awarding yourself additional money so you can keep spending or unlocking levels early, you have the ability to completely change how the game looks and a whole load of customisation options, just by typing in some of the simple Spore cheat codes we've got listed here. Watch out for the Joker Badge popping up on screen, as this means earning achievements has been disabled due to the code entered – don't save after that point, unless you're not planning on unlocking any awards during the rest of your playthrough. Taking that into consideration, have a look at the following Spore cheats and start getting creative.

How to use Spore cheat codes

To use Spore cheat codes, press Ctrl+Shift+C to open the console screen then type your selection from the following commands into the console and hit enter. Press Escape or click on the X to close the console when you're done.
