No because spore creature creator needs i high end pc to handle the graphics you can try but most likely the game won't even start.

Run Spore Creature Creator on unsupported GMA 950 Macs

according to Clancy:

Code:
1- download trial
2- click show package content
3- open resources folder
4- open tginstall.plist in Property List Editor (Having xcode installed helps)
5- Click the root triangle
6- scroll down to InsufficientRenderers
7- Change Intel GMA 950 OpenGL Engine to Intel GMA 850 OpenGL Engine (or something lower)
8- Save and run the installer


NOTE: don't try to edit the plist while it's on the mounted disk, copy the entire app somewhere on your local drive (example: desktop) and then edit it.

Yes i know you can do this.

But remember it is a trial and modding any files in it voids the eula and can or most likely will cause damage to your graphics card.

Hah! EULA is not a warranty, and is most likely not legally enforceable. And no, this will not damage your graphics card. It will either (1) not run, or (2) run and look like crap because you can't render as fast as it wants to.
