Hi @Havissyltetoy

 

Let start the game via Cider.

  1. Make a rightclick on the Spore icon ,
  2. Say package contents,
  3. Select the MacOS folder
  4.  Where you choose between the various Cider exec

Did you install the Catalina 10.15 update?

If you have installed the update, it won't run. The game is a 32 bit app and starting with 10.15 macOS will only support 64 bit apps.
