Wild animal attacks! Nuggets might’ve gotten away with hunting creatures unscathed in the past. But that’s all about to change. So if an animal decides that it stands a chance in a fight. It won’t run in the direction that your Hunters might be expecting. Roaming wolves may also attack your village during the cold winter months. However, we are not so cruel as to allow these attacks to go unanswered. You can now construct Defense Towers around the perimeter of your civilization. These will ensure that no beast can harm your Nuggets.

    Sort of. I have Spore but never put much time into it. The Universim has come along quite well and definitely an impressive game. Considering the scope of it.
