Downatrophin is a chemical introduced in Creatures 2, and also found in Creatures 3 and Docking Station. It is used to cause the creature to take a a "going-downhill" gait, and is produced when the creature is going downhill. There is also an Upatrophin which is the converse of Downatrophin. In the original Creatures 2 genome, the Upatrophin and Downatrophin were swapped, leading to creatures trying to use the 'downhill' walk when walking uphill, leading to mobility problems.
