Spore has proven to be one of the best real time strategy games over the years and still holds its own compared to the Modern titles. Reigning for over ten years, spore has come a long way. But the gameplay could use a lift up at least in some areas of the game and that is where the developer console comes into the picture. With console commands, you can customize the game experience to your liking and add features that you wish the game had and even disable the ones that you think make the gameplay obstructive. Through commands also known as cheats, you can access features like ability to unlock all the superweapons, gain DNA points without completing tasks, gain health, enable/disable blocksmode and even unlock hidden features.
How to Enable Game Console?
To access all these features, you first need to enable the game console.
If you are using Windows,
You need to press the following key combination:
- CTRL + SHIFT + C
If you are using Mac

Once opened, all you need is to type the cheat code in the console and press ENTER
An important thing to remember is that there are some cheat codes that give you the Joker Badge. This badge disables the achievements, so if you want to continue gaining achievements, don’t use the cheats tagged with Joker Badge.
