Great game
by Mark Hurley on 2019/02/17 16:53
The game used similar mechanics of prior games like Plague. But don’t let that fool you. This game is much more involved and a great deal more difficult.
Muy bueno

A cool spin of the Plague Inc. Enjoying it!
Jesus the milatary is kinda broken
by DMANNOOB on 2019/02/17 14:34
The surround tactic just doesn’t work even with garrisons. The insurgents don’t even fight to get to the other side of the troops they just pole vault over. If your gonna make surrounding the insurgents a tactic in the tutorial at least take away the insurgents poles.
Do you want to play a game?
by Spectre Assasin on 2019/02/17 06:50
It’s a great game to be played wherever you are. Whether it’s just passing the time, or if Plague is you’re Ultimate game. Rebel is very similar in the key elements that your decisions and timing are everything. And in Rebel Inc. you can actually feel a little stress when suddenly rebel insurgents are overwhelming you. Great job James, look forward to whatever you come up with next.
Great next game
by Heretical Reflections on 2019/02/17 04:30
Great follow-up effort from the studio that did Plague Inc. The issues from the first game have been largely addressed. My only annoyance is the jump in difficulty between Normal and Brutal is way too severe. Recommend adding in another step in between, as right now Normal is leisurely and Brutal is impossible for me.
Really Fun to Play

The game is great! It has the same basic play style of plague inc. but is different enough that it feels like a completely new game. It seems balanced and containing a lot of content. They continue to help you as you learn the game. My only complaint is the dynamic aspects of the game and the textures. Plague inc is a beautiful game and this game has the potential to be the same, however it is not quite there yet.

Unexpected Turn of Events
by Accendo11 on 2019/02/14 12:07
Developer: per request, I will take the initiative to leave my feedback about Rebel Inc.; partly because of the pun, but mostly for ego reasons. Lol So about this app. It’s an absolute game changer. No I’m not a brown-noser, let me explain why. So the first app, Plague; was incredibly captivating to me. The most staggering part I remember about Plague, was just how “Immersive” the potential was from the User’s perspective. It was totally unforgettable to experience it in that way, let alone with an iOS app...Repeatedly. What really took me by storm was thinking about how successfully developed it was to mimic or coincide methodically with real world “cause & effect” type of events; while incorporating a uniquely guided, creative-imagery structure to successfully put me in the moment frankly. With Plague, the level of impossible had been set higher in my opinion. I used to think there’s no way anything will top that or even can, for that matter. But now here’s this app, and I’m just blown away at how the theme was kept alive, while presenting it on an entirely different and uniquely new premise. Iconic. Mind boggling really, trying to convince myself you aren’t a mad scientist but that could be a cause & effect thing. Lol Bravo...for days. I love it, ok enough said. I’m busy...
Great game!

Complex but Fun
by Minecraftaddict307 on 2019/02/14 01:09
This game is certainly a lot to manage (though admittedly I don’t play a lot of strategy games, so take this with a grain of salt). It’s challenging, but it’s the good kind of challenging.
Great but not sure on the speed of reputation loss.
by random guy no.9000 on 2019/02/13 22:51
First of all I love this game and am not half bad at it. I’m a pretty impatient person to be honest, and play it on 3speed until the Insurgents attack and take a zone. Then I switch the speed to normal to better gauge spending between military and civilian initiatives. I think the rep meter doesn’t adjust as well because I lost around 20 rep for “lack of stability” in one month and kept losing 3-4 rep every 10 seconds. I love this game but it’s kinda hard to play if you lose in the first 5 minutes?
Yeah

by robrulesall2 on 2019/02/13 18:49
I was hesitant to buy it at first but i really enjoyed it now that I’ve tried it. The different improvements you can make in the region and the consequences of those choices make for a challenging game. 5/5

by Burnell A on 2019/02/12 07:08
I found plague inc to be phenomenal to this day, 5 years later, and so I feared that this game might not have been able to overcome plague inc, but I was fortunately wrong. The game is amazing and full of new features, and even though we’re only two updates in, you can tell that James and Co have learned much from plague inc, as the game is substantially more polished than plague inc was on launch.

by Pastor Sharp on 2019/02/11 22:16
It was fun at first but after the increasing challenge, it gets to a point where it’s simply no fun. I hate this game so much. I hate it. It makes want to throw my iPad off of a cliff. Stinking insurgents beating 3 coalition troops and a fully upgraded national troop with drone and air support. I hate this game. I hate it so much.
Noice
by Skullkid1013 on 2019/02/11 21:54
This game is a lot of fun. Unfortunately there needs to be a balance between each aspect of each part. You cannot focus on heavily gaining military advantage, you need to balance the reputation of yourself by support from the public, gain military advantage while keeping your combat abilities somewhat high and keeping your civilian’s support (you mostly use a foreign military which the public doesn’t like) and try to find a negotiation with the insurgents while keeping your corruption down and reputation strong. Every new aspect you provide to gain public support adds corruption to your government as your underlings gain money and bribe others to the cause, so you need to focus on “anti-corruption” deals. The basic rule of it is to find a strategy that is as balanced as you can make it. The game is fun, but extremely difficult and is meant for the patient and strategic thinker.

Unplayable garbage
by iamhootis on 2019/02/11 00:05
The game doesn’t even respond while playing!!! Alerts regularly pop up and can not be chosen, even though the game makes them more and more urgent. Buggy, prematurely released junk. Maybe I’ll try again in a couple years once the developers decide that user experience is as important as purchases.
Nice!

by PapaSwirl on 2019/02/09 16:10
Enjoying the perspectives of how difficult this game can be in managing a regional rebuild after war. Tutorial training helped out and if you've played Plague Inc it'll be even easier. Pricing is fair and levels unlock as you progress. Music and graphics are perfect. Doesn't seem to have a major impact on device performance compared to other games right out of the gate. Great work!

As a strategic genius who lives in a bunker I find this game really challenging & fun.
Awesomeness
by 77bloodbane77 on 2018/12/08 01:25
This game is awesome because they took there old game kept the format (to some extent) and made it greater. I love this game because everything that happens for most of the game is determined in the first 3 minutes because most upgrades take time to be used (which they should) and the in depth timing strategy you have to use throughout the rest of the game. Love the maps and love that the governors are radically different from each other so each game takes different strategy. There is really one thing I don’t like about the game it’s that when you put troops in a zone if you haven’t scouted that zone already your troops wont help neighboring zones fight which is kind of anoying. Some suggestions for future updates (although I know you already have great ones planned) it would be cool if we could play as the underpowered rebels and try to either get the best peace deal possible or just take over. And it would be neat to see more types of military troops maybe like dogs that sniff out and tell you where the next zone to be attacked is or some riot control that contain insergunts until you can send in real troops to wipe em out. Thanks for another great game please keep up the awesome work!
A nice idea.. not perfect
by osteostuddoc on 2018/12/11 02:55
Really enjoyed the premise of this game. These guys did a great job with Plague, Inc. and have got another good game going here. This time around is more like fighting off the infection rather than causing it. Really enjoyed the various mechanics of the campaign to improve the board, make my soldiers better, and reduce insurgents. Felt like there was a meaningful balance between trying to make improvements while limiting outside influences and corruption. There are elements that feel in place just to slow progress that I felt could be improved. It would be nice to have more focus on intelligence in the campaign as ways to reduce insurgency movements. This was my biggest complaint (and not that bad, more of just a gripe). If there was a way to predict and then counter insurgents movements to better my combat that would make the game better. Also, wish I had options for some sort of special operations or covert action force to go into an insurgent held area to somehow reduce their impact or remove their leadership to slow their progress when I’ve got main forces committed elsewhere. And it would be nice to select where I send airstrikes rather than just wherever insurgents are. This would give better control over potential civilian losses.
Huge potential
by Baggy2323 on 2019/01/12 23:54
This is a great game and is definitely worth 2 dollars, I’d even pay 7 for this. This game could be better like if you could combine plague inc and this it would amazing. See you could create your own disease but instead of trying to infest the whole WOLRD you just try to do it to help stop the enemies, or whatever their called. Another thing they could add is a bigger map. I know they have different maps but I’d like it if each one was a bit bigger. And one last thing is a wish you could customize how many troops you could put in one area in stead of just one group. I was trying to fight off a group but my team was losing and I kept trying to put more troops in but I was only able to put in one. But overall it really is a great game. It’s addicting, I love the strategy yet not completely based off strategy which I also like. The graphics are amazing and perfectly my style, which is not trying to be crazy realistic but still pretty good. So great game would recommend it keep making games like this and I’ll keep buying them, and it could be even better though and that’s what I am exited about. Peace
Has potential
by Ghostfire6113 on 2019/01/08 19:19
Since my last review vanished, I’ll add it again. I concur with what a lot of people have said, it has an amazing amount of potential...however... it has some serious balancing issues. I played all the maps, viruses, and difficulties on plague inc, it was challenging and sometimes frustrating, but failure was usually due to my long-term strategic or short-term tactical failures. Rebel inc. doesn’t seem to share that value, many things just drain reputation or skyrocket inflation and corruption without much benefit. The costs of countering insurgents are also highly unbalanced; i fully understand risk/reward play, but the rewards of the military upgrades just aren’t enough. Also, I really miss the customization of your viruses, there’s virtually nothing like that here. You get different governors but their effects aren’t that extreme, or game changing for the most part. Adding things (like the dna changes in plague inc) would be nice, smaller bumps are standalone, bigger bonuses would come with trade offs, etc. You could couple them with your favorite governor and do a min/max sort of thing, high risk/high-reward and all that. So far, I ran through all the maps and governors, and haven’t had much interest in going back; there just isn’t much replay ability to pull me back.
Great game from the makers of Plague Inc.
by ChronoLegion on 2019/01/21 00:20
Can’t get enough of this, especially after the addition of advisors (similar to genes in Plague Inc.). You unlock those by winning games and can use them in future play-throughs. Some are useful, others not so much. Each governor is different from the other, so your strategy will change. With the Economist, you have to use your cash sparingly, since you only get a new influx once a year instead of once a month. With the General, you can get a head start training troops and building garrisons (all others have to wait for insurgents to show up). The General also has awesome upgrades for troops that turn them into killing machines. Unlocking the Warlord is tough: you either have to beat every map with every other governor on Brutal difficulty or pay real money. Unlike Plague Inc., initiatives take time to deploy and spread. Just because you purchased a highway improvement doesn’t mean all highways are instantly fixed (hey, real life is like that!). You can also invite international organizations to help you for free, but at the cost of increased inflation and corruption.
GOTY 2018
by Salem Smitherstone on 2018/12/19 08:40
Rebel Inc is a phenomenal game, for its exploration of the complexities and nuances of political decisions, management of infrastructure, all while conducting a civil war. There is a lot going on, but it never feels overwhelming thank to an intuitive interface, and an integrated tutorial system that highlights mechanics with well timed prompts during gameplay. On top of being a great game, Rebel Inc. allows the player a more involved and realistic insight into the realities faced by many government bodies in the world today. Many of these third world countries, especially those with war-devastated infrastructure find themselves in a tight position between first world powers with conflicting interests, the exploitation from first world industrial powers with interest in raw materials, and the crippling consequences that come with failed loans from the World Bank. I hope that, as the game expands, that it will delve further into these complex issues. With the additions made in the latest update, I see that beginning to happen already. Thank you James and the Ndemic Creations Team, you have produced a phenomenal gaming experience.
Lots of potential
by MyNameIs...i don't CAAARE on 2018/12/10 16:41
The amount of strategy required and the simulation that this game provides is insane but needs more to be able to live up to its predecessor, Plague Inc. We need more choices, maps, governors, balance out the insurgents by either reducing their overall strength or increase the power of our national army or coalition. The insurgents just pop up so quickly to the point where it is EXTREMELY OVERWHELMING. If we could recruit new armies quicker and more efficiently, it would balance it out more. Or just reduce how quickly our reputation goes down because of the insurgents. But I’ve lost count of how many times I lost because the insurgents just wipe the floor with my armies even after I upgrade them but the upgrades seem to make such little to no difference. I loved the game at first but it has too many balancing issues. I can’t wait to see what’s in store for the game in the future and I hope it matches or becomes even better than Plague Inc one day. James and the team are great devs who always seem to listen to any feedback. I have a lot of faith in them to expand on this even more.
Different and in the very good way
by LunarServant on 2018/12/15 03:38
i’ve played the heck out of plague inc. i’ve gotten the vast majority of the virus’s in that game, and finding out that this was made by the same devs peaked my interest. it’s very good so far, because instead of causing mass panic and infecting the earth, your trying to stabilize a country. you’ll start by rolling out projects from your HQ, and then contend with insurgents as you try to stabilize the region further with roads, medical supplies and what not with a upgrade system similar to plague inc. but be careful, the more upgrades you buy, the more you’ll inflate the upgrades prices, as well as there being a chance for your government to become corrupt. that, and you’ll be fending off various insurgent attacks and locating their camps with drones and bombers (but don’t get carried away, you might end up blowing up the people your trying to help). so in short, if you enjoyed plague inc, you’ll want to take a look at Rebel inc. (side note: you’ll need to use two shuffle word things for naming your operation. custom naming isn’t here yet i think)
Potential but needs serious rebalancing.
by ninja368 on 2018/12/17 08:58
Good game, but it needs a serious rebalance as of right now the brutal difficulty is virtually impossible to beat on map four. The insurgents are too strong and pop up in three separate zones. There is no way on Earth to contain them and often they’re stronger than your coalition troops. Corruption is out of control as well and upgrades don’t seem to help at all. I’ll re-evaluate my rating once the balance issues are addressed. Edit:// Updating and dropping my rating. Everyone giving this game good reviews is playing the first few missions which are interesting and fun. Once you get to the later levels it’s literally impossible to win on the harder difficulties. The final mission is so obscenely hard I’m astounded. Coalition troops can’t win even with four armies supporting them. Regions will not stabilize even if you have half the upgrades purchased. They go up one tick per time unit, but you’re losing rep at a rate of 3 per unit. Simultaneously the invincible rebels are swarming zones non-stop and demolishing your rep. This game has some SERIOUS balance issues that need to be addressed and they don’t become apparent until you’ve played for a bit.
Wish I could give a negative star review
by tmchristen on 2018/12/23 03:58
Now I love plague inc. so when I saw this I was super excited, but this game is ridiculous. First off the people you gave to use in order to unlock other areas do not support what needs to be done on that specific map. The insurgent rate at which they spawn is absolutely absurd. Coalition forces need to be able to stay spawned longer. You literally have to choose either do what needs to be done for civilians and let the insurgents run rampant or choose military over civilian development but you cannot stabilize the region. Corruption is increased wayyyyyy too fast with no quick way to bring it down. You literally have 18 months to two years to develop the area before the bad guys show up, sometimes they show up in one spot and other times they show up in 3 different sections and that is when you just start your game over. You lose reputation like it’s a $1 sale, once you start ticking down because of the stability just restart the game because you will not get it back fast enough. The spawn time for the national forces needs to be shortened since the coalition forces can be summoned almost immediately. I would give this game an honest -2 stars, very very disappointed.
Waste of time
by TrviaCrackster on 2019/01/23 16:57
This game starts out cool they kept they old format from plague and it works ok but after you do the first level and you get to the next map you have to use the economist leader to unlock the next map. Well this is virtually impossible even on casual...you earn money WAY too slow while the terrorists seem to grow at an inordinate pace. Even if you use the civil leader on the second map it’s almost impossible because the terrorist grow too quickly. This game is only fun if you use it as a time killer and you play on the first level with the first leader that’s it. ***update*** AFTER PLAYING THIS GAME FOR LITERALLY HOURS ON END AND TRYING EVERY DIFFERENT TYPE OF COMBINATION IMAGINABLE IF YOU PAY THE CORRUPTION OFF AT THE BEGINNING OF THE GAME YOU DONT HAVE ENOUGH MONEY TO COMBAT INSURGENTS. IF YOU PAY TO INCREASE HEALTH AND EDUCATION AND WATER YOUR CORRUPTION GOES THROUGH THE ROOF. IF YOU TAKE STEPS TO COMBAT CORRUPTION THEN AGAIN YOU DONT HAVE MONEY TO DFEAT TERRORIST. IF YOU SAVE YOUR MONEY YOU GET ACCUSED OF WASTING MONEY AND HURTS YOUR REPUTATION SO YOU SPEND A LITTLE ON MAKING LIVING BETTER AND TO COMBAT CORRUPTION THEN USE SOME TO GET A MILITARY COALITION AND NATIONAL DEFENSE FORCE YOU HAVE A CHANCE BUT THEN THE TERRORIST OUTPACE YOU ON GROWTH HURTING YOUR REPUTATION. THIS GAME NEEDS SERIOUS HELP IT WOULD BE GOOD IF THE TERRORIST DIDNT GROW AS FAST, NATIONAL FORCES TRAIN MORE QUICKLY, MAKE CORRUPTION AFFECT YOUR REPUTATION LESS.
Huge Potential
by cab4154 on 2018/12/07 02:03
This is an excellent game with everything that I wanted but never had: a challenging, strategic, and realistic political simulator. There is far more depth to the game than I thought was even present in Plague Inc, and the game mechanics need some balancing, but it’s very fine for a new release. I played through all levels on brutal, but got stuck on the last map. But the insurgent mechanics need to be nerfed, because my fully modernized and mechanized coalition forces can only move a few tiles before some ragtag insurgents that fall out of the sky behind friendly lines are able to take a major city and end the game. And even if I catch up to them in time, it doesn’t matter because they are literally invincible unless I corner them, which typically requires 3-4 units (i.e. everyone) so I have to pull everything from the front lines just to stabilize the smallest threats. And the reputation needs to be booned. Otherwise it’s a great game that I’m looking forward to!
Fun game
by GoneTogue on 2019/01/19 02:00
The many things you have to manage makes it feel like a more I. Depth The Dictator game but actually seeing your success and failures on a map. A cool idea is more types of units. If you get enough reputation more and more blue soldiers (blue soldiers are better but not native in the city so the occupied do not like them, and green ones are native there and receive much less hate from the occupied) to come. For the insurgence they should get black soldiers (there is a chance that outside countries can help the insurgence but it only makes them harder) that are more elite and would spawn on the map. A problem is a lack of role play. If I want to play as an authoritarianship I should be able to march soldiers faster which will hurt reputation as well as having faster national soldier training times and more of them too. To deal with that you could threaten journalists to lie about you or occupy urban areas to stop corruption.
Challenging, in a great way
by A Mercer Review on 2018/12/05 23:07
So far I have loved playing this, already put over 5 hours into this game. I played Plague Inc. for a long time and I can say this can and will be a better version of it, I love the extra depth they’ve added, whether it’s negotiating peace relations, interacting with your coalition and such. It’s also very challenging because the enemy can be very brutal even in normal mode, which can take a lot of time testing the abilities and understanding how to use your military with just the right timing. I personally feel like the enemies toughness could need a little lightening up but you don’t want to lose the challenge either. It can be very satisfying when you finally destroy the insurgents. Lastly, the tutorial and tips are very good, I would just ask that you help us understand the peace process a little better and how to end the game. Thank you for a great follow up! Keep up the work!
You want your stupid review, here it is.
by Kr33my on 2019/01/11 16:35
First off, this game is extremely unrealistic. Second, the mechanics are broken stupid. Third, sure the creativity is great!; maybe the devs should stick to killing off everyone with infections rather than trying to resolve conflict. Why do I say these things? No country or it’s people will demand things that a government can’t provide during a war with the enemy in its own country. The governors are all idiots because they raise corruption and inflation . Why don’t you actually let us input some type of government without becoming totalitarians. And you make the insurgents completely stubborn when clearly the players can (at multiple times) corner them. But the game spawns some idiots in the darkest corner of the map to drop my reputation in a heart beat. Creating a military doesn’t cause corruption if it needs to fight a war. If people wanted to stabilize their country, they wouldn’t act the way they do in this game. Sure it’s just being optimistic but you guys don’t even input all of the realistic aspects of life and politics into this game to make it as hard as it is. Fix it, I’d give it no stars.
Great game with a few issues
by Bigdonf on 2019/01/11 18:12
Just like plague in I fell in love with this game from the start. The strategy is deep yet easy to understand. Inclusions like the different maps and governors add variety’s to the game that plague sometimes lacked with every designer feeling the same. The games difficulty’s feel well balance except for the the insurgents. They are not impossible to deal with but they feel to strong. You know you have a problem when fully upgraded soldiers with air support and a nearby garrison stubble to liberate a tile. In addition while the fact you have to encircle insurrectionists to eliminate them is cool in theory it is hard to do in practice. The fact they can basically spawn anywhere(with some map specific spawns) means that it can be up to ring to decide how easy it is to deal with. Sometimes they spawn on a corner and can be easily surrounded . Other they are in the middle of the map and spread like a plague. This will be 5 stars once the insurgents are either nerfed or the soldiers are buffed.
Noice
by Skullkid1013 on 2019/02/11 21:54
This game is a lot of fun. Unfortunately there needs to be a balance between each aspect of each part. You cannot focus on heavily gaining military advantage, you need to balance the reputation of yourself by support from the public, gain military advantage while keeping your combat abilities somewhat high and keeping your civilian’s support (you mostly use a foreign military which the public doesn’t like) and try to find a negotiation with the insurgents while keeping your corruption down and reputation strong. Every new aspect you provide to gain public support adds corruption to your government as your underlings gain money and bribe others to the cause, so you need to focus on “anti-corruption” deals. The basic rule of it is to find a strategy that is as balanced as you can make it. The game is fun, but extremely difficult and is meant for the patient and strategic thinker.
Good so far, could be great
by Cabtx46 on 2019/01/26 16:56
Only had the game for two days so far. In that time, I have developed a crush on this app. It’s fun, there is no doubt about it. If you liked Plague Inc, then you will be easily seduced by this game. I plan to update my review down the road, but so far I recommend it. The only cumbersome problem I have right now is the unlocking of the advisors. I’m not sure what they actually do once unlocked. They don’t *seem* to have any effect on the game, but perhaps I just have not noticed it yet. I am struggling with the hardest play mode. It seems I have tried every combination and can’t seem to win. Hopefully I will be able to master it, however, right now it just makes me crazy. Anyway, definitely worth a couple of bucks to purchase. My only real complaint so far is I don’t like buying an app and then being asked to buy additional add-ons later. Thanks for the new game!
A great game initially, but insurgents are extremely frustrating.
by David R. D. on 2019/01/13 00:09
Let me just start off by saying that if the insurgents were fixed and had more ways to deal with them, this would be an easy 5/5. Everything in the game is so strategic and balanced and just fun to play with. I’ve spent several hours so far on this game as well as Plague inc. The big thing holding this game back is the Insurgents. They are unbelievably powerful and numerous. They keep coming and can seemingly spawn literally anywhere in the map, yet you can kill them unless you surround them on all sides of their territory, which can require up to 5 military units! It’s ridiculous and extremely annoying to deal with. A good fix would be to have the option to upgrade your units in a way to where they can kill them without having to surround them, or something along those lines. That, in my opinion, is a major flaw and is borderline game breaking. The game is fantastic otherwise.
Unexpected Turn of Events
by Accendo11 on 2019/02/14 12:07
Developer: per request, I will take the initiative to leave my feedback about Rebel Inc.; partly because of the pun, but mostly for ego reasons. Lol So about this app. It’s an absolute game changer. No I’m not a brown-noser, let me explain why. So the first app, Plague; was incredibly captivating to me. The most staggering part I remember about Plague, was just how “Immersive” the potential was from the User’s perspective. It was totally unforgettable to experience it in that way, let alone with an iOS app...Repeatedly. What really took me by storm was thinking about how successfully developed it was to mimic or coincide methodically with real world “cause & effect” type of events; while incorporating a uniquely guided, creative-imagery structure to successfully put me in the moment frankly. With Plague, the level of impossible had been set higher in my opinion. I used to think there’s no way anything will top that or even can, for that matter. But now here’s this app, and I’m just blown away at how the theme was kept alive, while presenting it on an entirely different and uniquely new premise. Iconic. Mind boggling really, trying to convince myself you aren’t a mad scientist but that could be a cause & effect thing. Lol Bravo...for days. I love it, ok enough said. I’m busy...
Game needs fixing!!!
by FixYourStupidGame on 2018/12/23 22:55
UPDATE: Game is unplayable in current state. Insurgents are much too powerful. Coalition soldiers never stay long enough. Zones are not stabilized fast enough. Everything takes too long and is too expensive. Not fun. I do NOT recommend this game until they completely fix it. So far, waste of money. I really like this game. Its exciting and in somewhat the same format that Plague Inc. which works and is fun...but the game makes it way too hard for you too advance. Im on the second mission of this game, and even on normal mode, it just becomes way too overwhelming and difficult to push back insurgents. First it takes time for military too arrive at a certain destination, and you cant even get your military started until there is a military threat, so youre forced to choose temporary soldiers for fights. When soldiers do get on a point correctly the insurgents move away almost immediately and start attacking another zone way faster than they should. Insurgents are incredibly broken in this game. I want too like it, I do, but time and time again, insurgents ruin everything and I have no control over it. - Insurgents come too quickly and come in way bigger numbers than they should. -Temporary military will only stay a little, but regular military takes forever to train and deploy. - With the amount of insurgents and the amount of military given, insurgents will always win. The game is good, but they need to rethink the whole threat level.
Good? Yes, but there is always room for improvement.
by Music Heir on 2018/12/15 17:02
Rebel Inc. is a fantastic creation of a surrealistic world of common lifestyle, struggle, and politics. I am very impressed with the foundation of this game and the possibilities there on. I admire the fact there are so many options to achieving stabilization. I just wish I had more information about what happens when I start an initiative or raise a military. For example, military; how long does it take to train soldiers, and the difference between local militia and coalition soldiers? Another example, corruption (cuz it’s a BIG factor); some I initiatives reduce corruption over time. Question: how much corruption does it reduce over time? If I had to add a perk of my own, I would want something that allowed me to improve, accelerate, or even micromanage a certain initiative. When I tried using garrisons to support my troops, I was wondering when the team in charge would make a decision, and sometimes I wanted garrisons in places other than where they were. (Never mind everything still working out.) I think being aware and being in control are important factors in any scenario, game or otherwise. (Well that, and I like getting my hands dirty with the grunts and desk-jockeys!)
Fun and challenging
by Honeybadgerxj76 on 2018/12/18 14:31
This is a really fun game. Great way to pass time. The game gets more and more challenging as it goes and really tests your ability to plan and choose upgrades appropriately as well as manage funds. I reduced a star because the information pop ups that occur constantly throughout gameplay are incredibly annoying. I’ll be really focused trying to move troops around to corner insurgents before more show up and a pop up will jump into your face telling you that troops are in a certain region. Like no crap, I just put them there. Also, the info pop ups that tell you how to play the game even though there’s a tutorial are annoying too. It should be logical that if I’ve unlocked the level by playing previous levels, then I know how to play.
Long time fan of Inc. Games
by Redhotmom80 on 2018/12/09 20:21
I bought this recently because it was made by the same developer as Plague Inc, one of my favorite mobile game developers. This game definitely resembles the dev’s previous work, and I look forward to future updates. However, some complaints. 1. Sometimes the UI will bug out and prevent me from backing out of a selection process for map, governor, or difficulty selection unless I restart the application. 2. The overall difficulty of the game is alright, and the different governors with different map combinations help make them feel more alive. However, adding in the DNA modifiers like in Plague inc to help boost/hinder the game’s progress would be a welcome addition. That’s about it for now. Looking forward to special scenarios, additional tweaks, and some new features.
Great game
by GHOSTRIDER6101 on 2018/12/27 08:24
I love this game and am also a fan of Plague Inc. I have beat all the viruses on super brutal so I came into this game with plenty of experience and still find it challenging but possible. A few suggestions, a actual rebel mode would be amazing! If you could rebel and conquer an entire continent rising up from rags to riches! Another suggestion is an endless mode. I think it has tons of potential in which you could stack your army in the same country and have even more types of army’s like riot control or the navy. You would battle against endless waves of insurgents and enemies as you rack up and endless and unstoppable army! I hope you consider my suggestions as I think they would make the game better and much more diverse.
An insightful game by a renown developer
by Tiger1230 on 2018/12/25 22:54
James has taken the game style of Plague Inc. and with it has created a similarly-played game with a great window to the US Middle East operations. While our media only shows the civilian casualties, drone strikes, and rebel negotiations, this game reveals the sources behind our current knowledge (or lack of) in the Middle East. From balancing initiatives and corruption to deciding on ruthless internationals or weak nationalists as your region’s defense, every aspect of this game puts you on the line on whether a cover-up works, an insurgency get rerouted, or whether the peace talks fail. While I could go on and on, I can only say two things. To those who own Plague Inc, this won’t disappoint you. To those new to this franchise, hop right on in!
Amazing. Absolutely freakin' amazing.
by corruption_of_lol on 2018/12/14 15:00
After years of having the life scared out of me countless times by Plague, Inc., Ndemic drops another amazing game in the form of Rebel, Inc. Instead of just being another military strategy game, this one has an amazing mix of political science and military strategy. You fight government corruption at the same time as you're fighting an insurgency, while trying to stabilize the region by gaining popularity, loyalty, building relationships, trust with the population, and infrastructure. Ndemic, I hope you read this. You guys are geniuses. In a market saturated by the same things over and over again, you guys have created an amazing style all of your own. Thank you so much for sharing it with us. Cheers!
Way too fast
by Good game .... on 2019/01/18 17:23
Things happen way too quickly, How does it make sense that I can’t start training troops until I’m about to be attacked, I understand that excess foreign troops will decrease reputation if left to long but when enemies pop up all over the map at one time it is hard to deal with, all the while trying to make decisions and spend money where needed. The game makes it very difficult to progress, Not enough money and whatever you spend the money on will only have a short lived effect. Big fan of plague as I have beaten every level on brutal difficulty, that being said if I can’t get passed the second stage of this game on casual something needs to change, really want this to be a game that I play often but as of right now I’ve wasted 2$
The best!
by NinjaDogz on 2018/12/12 03:50
Way better than plague. Being a military guy, I absolutely enjoy the ability to destroy the “insurgency” haha. I would like there to be more Governors, maybe have some US military type governors with pros and cons, that way you can take over in a better, more different way. One US governor of the area might be a military spec ops guy with the ability to quickly deploy units and have them fight harder, but con is that the people hate them even more than normal and they won’t cooperate as much? Not really sure on the idea, but I’ll let y’all run with it! Also, maybe another is like a General, and so on so forth. Thank you! Good luck with this amazing game James and everyone else!
A+ Amazing
by juanello_jello on 2018/12/08 16:04
This game is highly addictive. It does cost a little extra for some more features like governors and maps, but it’s totally worth it. The controls are easy and simple and there a quick and easy tutorial to follow if you want to learn how to play. The graphics are beautiful and and it gives you a situation map kind of feel. This game is a politically accurate game. Trying to understand the balance of military strength and diplomacy in certain countries around the world. I would like to see maybe being to name our operations ourselves rather than randomly generate names, as well as maybe add some vehicles, a AC-130 spectre gunship, and some special forces
Amazing job
by toxic_candy526 on 2019/01/22 20:12
I feel like I am playing a game I am used to yet it’s concepts are different loving it I loved plague inc. and I’m loving this one to it would be so cool if I’m the future you can implement maybe like a whole wide world collapse and you are trying to stabilize countries using the same in game ways just on a bigger scale like plague inc. way of infecting the world your trying to fix it and bring back stability and is their a mode for playing as the insurgents that would be pretty cool to see it fork their side of the gameplay any other ways live the game having no issues with it and I can’t put it down as of yet it’s amazing I love it good job with this one
First Impressions
by Quinny S. on 2018/12/10 19:38
I finished my first game on Casual and found the game to involve several mechanics that I enjoyed to a great extent. I wish the tutorial had introduced me to a more thorough explanation of Corruption and the difference between actual Corruption and Corruption Risk. To those who are considering this game, if you liked Plague Inc, this will definitely check all the boxes for you! Other than that, I found that the game featuring a complex system of pacifying a region to be really fun, and I believe I will continue to explore this game on harder difficulties. I saw only a few maps, and I hope that more will be released, as well as several situations comparable to the developer’s other game, Plague Inc. I look forward to what comes next!
Yes, yes a hundred a fifty million times yes.
by Resistance95 on 2018/12/05 21:11
I’m already in love with Rebel Inc. I’ve been playing plague inc for years, and was so excited to see that you were producing a new game. I love the political/militaristic balancing act of stabilizing a region, and it’s super rewarding when you get it right. If I had any ideas to make it better, more maps, and diverse locales. Every map feels like it takes place in the Middle East. Maybe adding maps of stabilizing areas affected by drug cartels, or organized crime in locations like rainforest, bustling urban areas and other less desert style areas. Also having deployed coalition soldiers that have squadron or platoon names would be cool. Thanks for the new game!
A new experience ( even with similarities to Plague )
by OSBastard on 2018/12/10 19:44
First off fans of Plague will notice some similarities, but rest assured that this is more than a “special virus” + reskin. Tactical placement plays a much more important role in this game. The game also plays much more like a “reverse” Plague, having to quarantine areas with insurrection and purge them one by one, while remembering crushing one flare up is a long ways from winning the war. Perhaps the most important similarity to Plague is the effort that has been made to ground the game with strong echoes of the real world. The challenges, events, and more call back again and again to the ongoing US conflicts in Afghanistan / Iraq. This is one of those touches that really enhance the experience I’ve played all of the maps at least once, and am looking forward to expansions / new game modes. I previously expressed disappointment in GameCenter integration, but that has been fixed. 👍 PS: this was the first paid game I ever preordered for iPhone. The moment I saw who it was from I knew I wanted to be all over it.
Lots of questionable design decisions
by Taznak on 2019/01/23 10:04
Game is fun at the start, and I did get my 2 dollars’ worth of entertainment. That said, I’m done with the game and will move on to better games now. My issues with the game are: 1. You can have a single insurgent and he’s immortal unless he gets completely surrounded, AND there’s a multiple bases spawning enemies like him, and the number of insurgents is random, and you’re woefully unprepared to deal with them early on. I have to restart stages over and over until I get few enemy spawns. 2. The list of investments is full of newbie traps, and it’s not at all obvious what they are. 3. It takes ages to train national soldiers; in fact it takes so long that coalition soldiers have to leave well before your national soldiers are out, which means you’re forced to take massive reputation damage to keep your coalition soldiers around against their will. 4. There’s not that much strategic depth. You figure out which are the good investments and in which order you should get them, which are the bad investments to avoid, and then you always do the same and you win or you lose depending on how lucky or unlucky you get with random events and (especially) with insurgent spawns. It’s somewhat fun, but it’s mostly just frustrating.
Pretty unique concept
by FTB_SLAYER on 2018/12/17 23:19
If you liked plague inc. you're going to like rebel inc. same concept but beside it being a world-wide spread epidemic this game cuts down to a large region within it there are tiny other regions, based on the Middle East and your goal is to stabilize all small regions while micro managing rebels and keep them at bay while you reach 100% stability across all the map that's it also they replace the bubbles as political decision seen in other games which goes well. Liked it so much it still manage to keep its roots and adds more and it evolves fantastically also it felt more down to earth and more realistically in some form.
Enjoyable and Easy to Learn
by MikeyPanda777 on 2018/12/08 21:44
I had previously played Plague Inc. and thought it was a great mobile game that entertained and got one to use their brains. Now this is the type of political stimulation I can enjoy. Making decisions to help locals and gain their support. The old Hearts and Minds approach. While trying to fend off pesky insurgents without doing too much damage that will turn people against you. Very realistic game and if anything I would love to see another version come out where you can even do more with foreign relations. Possibly cut ties with countries supporting insurgents and likewise. Lot of possibilities but this game right now is so much fun. Enjoy it.
Great game
by Pack mule 9 88 on 2018/12/29 02:12
Ive been looking for a fun game to be able to pick up in my spare time, and it seems that this one more than fits the bill. In fact, it’s really hard to put down. A very easy game to pick up and fits and adapts to most people’s play styles. I tried this game because I enjoyed plague inc. (another game I would defiantly recommend) and I couldn’t be happier with how this one is. Revel inc. is such a fun game, and with easy to follow and learn guidelines it made the game fun from the start. I can’t wait to see what else this awesome game has to offer and would defiantly recommend it to anyone looking for the next great game. 👍
Great game
by Lord Thag on 2018/12/05 03:44
Just won my first game of this little gem. The game itself puts you in the role of a government official tasked with restoring peace and order in a region destabilized by war. You have numerous laws, initiatives, measures and of course, the military at your disposal. The game is basically the political and military version of herding cats. You have to convince the public you (and not the rebels) are in their best interests, while fending off rebel uprisings and attacks, which pop up like brush fires everywhere. The game has a lot of moving parts to balance. Your military fights the rebels but they flee and infect other zones easily, and coalition troops drop your support. The measures you pass can help pacify the locals but raid corruptions and inflation. The whole thing is a carefully tuned balancing act between opposing, exclusive choices. Which means it’s tense, fun and engaging. In addition, the interface and gameplay are clean and easy to follow, keeping your focus on the decisions you need to make. Fun game, one of the better strategy games on iOS for sure.
A Rewarding Step Up From Plague Inc.
by Mr. Fl0wers on 2019/01/26 21:48
Some developers have a difficult time surpassing their first successful game with another. Ndemic, on the other hand, has done a significantly impressive job creating a game with a similar formula to Plague Inc. As similar as it is, the game demands that you strategize and carefully plan ahead to carry out your decisions effectively and efficiently. Instead of disease and infection, you have stability and reputation. Instead of cures, you have insurgency activity. Instead of evolving, you have military activity – you get the idea! If you’re a fan of Plague Inc., Rebel Inc. has a lot to offer to impress both old and new fans.
This game is fantastic
by invertedlight on 2019/01/20 20:42
This game is a piece of art. It is extremely addicting and I have burned hours playing it. I also love the new update that added in advisors they are extremely useful and maybe even a little OP. Because when your in mid game and you have 30 rep but your making 5 income a month because of the tax collector your almost guaranteed a win. But on to why I left this review, please make a wiki or add in the ability to turn on nerd stats so we can see where each initiative Benefits is and how much. Again thank you for the great game and I hope you make bank off it.

Has potential. Unfortunately by the time Military unlocks you end up spending all of your time and very limited resources on increasing military while the insurgents nonstop attacks. By the time any tiny bit of headway is made then you have to send your troops away or you lose decent amounts of rep (you can’t get replacements). The national guard option is a joke and the expensive air strikes do very little besides make you lose rep even quicker. All the options for building infrastructure goes right out the window and it’s nothing but military which makes the aforementioned options completely moot. Especially since you can’t even spend money on military to get prepared AT ALL until it unlocks (which is when insurgents are already attacking). Sorry I wasted the $2. Unfortunate as Plague was such a great game.
So amazingly frustrating
by The1andOUI1 on 2018/12/05 15:51
Never before have I wanted to both kill a game and play another game. The game is both fun, challenging but also educational. It make you be both the “good cop” and the “bad cop” in the problems you are faced. It make you think in a multifaceted mind set with both the present and the future at risk. The thing I said after I finished a round is that I wanted to play again. I now have a deeper understanding of how hard it can be to be in politics and all the factor you have to be aware of at each moment. And how the tables can just turn at a moment. Mind blown.
Unbalanced Gameplay
by LoudSiren1738 on 2018/12/23 22:31
First of all, the game is very fun to play, but it is near impossible to play after getting to the Banker Governor. In order to actually destroy insurgent rebels, you have to corner them using at least 3 of your armys. And because you only have 4 of those that stay, it gets very hard. Most outcomes are determined simply by luck. Also, the public opinion runs out too quickly. When I am trying to keep the territory’s from being captured from 5 different groups of insurgents, all I can simply do is play a long loosing battle. The fact that the enemy captures the territory faster than your troops can move makes the game unfair. And upgrades such as the “local militia” which makes it harder for the insurgents to capture the territory, don’t even affect it at all. You constantly are.. 1 chasing the enemy out of territory 2 while they run, capture territory back 3 they capture the territory they ran into 4 now repeat step one This is why the game is so difficult even on normal mode. The enemy grows so fast, and you have so little troops to do anything about it. Either having more permanently deployed troops or decrease the rate at which the insurgents grow. -thanks
Wonderful, Absolutely Wonderful

The thing that made me love Plague Inc so much was how immersive and different the game and setting was. With easy to grasp mechanics with some difficulty in mastering the game, it allowed for a ton of time to reply and learn all the new tricks and ways of playing. Rebel Inc has me feeling nostalgic, from the setting to the mechanics to the smallest detail, there isn’t a lot of things to say against this game. The attention to detail is prevalent and it is clear that a lot of love and work went into this game. While being similar to the mechanics of Plague Inc, it also has enough of its own material to be new and exciting. There are a couple things that I don’t like, but that’s only a personal opinion and I’m sure that once I find out the tricks of the game, and a couple patches later I’m sure this game could reach a 10/10 easily. I’m very happy to see this “series family” grow and become much more then a single IOS game about destroying the world. TL;DR this is a very nice and enjoyable game. Worth the cash.
Great Twist on the Original
by Moxthafox on 2018/12/12 14:21
Rebel Inc. is another demonstration of just how detailed and intricate Ndemic’s work is to everyone else. There are so many different things that can happen within the game, adding to its replayability value. I love the variety between regions, which forces you to choose different strategies that best fit the attributes of a certain area. It’s easy to learn, yet hard to master; it has a great interface with as much information as you need for each area as well. I truly recommend this game for anyone that enjoyed Plague Inc., or anyone else for that matter. Great job, Ndemic!
Unbelievable!
by bigdaddyisawesome0123456789 on 2018/12/05 03:00
Making another game that acts like Plague but is totally different seems like an impossible task. However this is exactly what Ndemic did here. It’s release night on version 1.01 - a version that is infamous for bugs across not only games but software in general - and I see absolutely nothing wrong here. The gameplay is user friendly, the story is interesting literally from the moment you start the application, and the graphics are stunning. Keep in mind I am writing this review 10 minutes after release and I love the game already.
Educational - not in a bad way!
by Jinchoung on 2018/12/08 08:00
The real opportunity with games is illuminating how complex, dynamic systems work. It's really ripe to tackle subjects like economics and politics in a robust way but few designers attempt it. Gladly, the people from Plague Inc haven't shied away from tackling the economic, political and military aspects of tackling a counter-insurgency campaign. I cannot, of course, speak to its accuracy as a layman, but from what i've read in newspaper articles for the last couple of decades (alas), it seems true and crystalized some of the notions that were not clearly realized. Great production values, very clear and easy to understand gameplay, lots of interesting decisions to be made and a rarity - a musical score that does not make me instantly go to settings to turn it off! The music here is unobtrusive and adds a great sense of atmosphere and flavor. Truly ambitious and even ballsy in this era where people use anything and everything as an excuse to feign being offended. Kudos.
Nearly Perfect
by Redsheep@i-2000 on 2019/01/28 05:29
Long time Plague Inc. player. This game is really well done. Its setting is accurate and it addresses the more sensitives topics respectfully. The game itself is very fun to play and very in depth for a mobile game. One addition from Plague Inc. who’s integration would be interesting is the scenarios feature, as while the game is already made up of scenarios, there are several ways to carry out such an addition. I personally would like to see scenarios that are more oriented towards the different aspects of the game, specifically military. Overall, on par with Plague Inc. at 5/5

Great game

The game used similar mechanics of prior games like Plague. But don’t let that fool you. This game is much more involved and a great deal more difficult.

Jesus the milatary is kinda broken
by DMANNOOB on 2019/02/17 14:34
The surround tactic just doesn’t work even with garrisons. The insurgents don’t even fight to get to the other side of the troops they just pole vault over. If your gonna make surrounding the insurgents a tactic in the tutorial at least take away the insurgents poles.
Do you want to play a game?
by Spectre Assasin on 2019/02/17 06:50
It’s a great game to be played wherever you are. Whether it’s just passing the time, or if Plague is you’re Ultimate game. Rebel is very similar in the key elements that your decisions and timing are everything. And in Rebel Inc. you can actually feel a little stress when suddenly rebel insurgents are overwhelming you. Great job James, look forward to whatever you come up with next.
Great next game
by Heretical Reflections on 2019/02/17 04:30
Great follow-up effort from the studio that did Plague Inc. The issues from the first game have been largely addressed. My only annoyance is the jump in difficulty between Normal and Brutal is way too severe. Recommend adding in another step in between, as right now Normal is leisurely and Brutal is impossible for me.
Really Fun to Play

The game is great! It has the same basic play style of plague inc. but is different enough that it feels like a completely new game. It seems balanced and containing a lot of content. They continue to help you as you learn the game. My only complaint is the dynamic aspects of the game and the textures. Plague inc is a beautiful game and this game has the potential to be the same, however it is not quite there yet.

Unexpected Turn of Events
by Accendo11 on 2019/02/14 12:07
Developer: per request, I will take the initiative to leave my feedback about Rebel Inc.; partly because of the pun, but mostly for ego reasons. Lol So about this app. It’s an absolute game changer. No I’m not a brown-noser, let me explain why. So the first app, Plague; was incredibly captivating to me. The most staggering part I remember about Plague, was just how “Immersive” the potential was from the User’s perspective. It was totally unforgettable to experience it in that way, let alone with an iOS app...Repeatedly. What really took me by storm was thinking about how successfully developed it was to mimic or coincide methodically with real world “cause & effect” type of events; while incorporating a uniquely guided, creative-imagery structure to successfully put me in the moment frankly. With Plague, the level of impossible had been set higher in my opinion. I used to think there’s no way anything will top that or even can, for that matter. But now here’s this app, and I’m just blown away at how the theme was kept alive, while presenting it on an entirely different and uniquely new premise. Iconic. Mind boggling really, trying to convince myself you aren’t a mad scientist but that could be a cause & effect thing. Lol Bravo...for days. I love it, ok enough said. I’m busy...
Great game!

by Minecraftaddict307 on 2019/02/14 01:09
This game is certainly a lot to manage (though admittedly I don’t play a lot of strategy games, so take this with a grain of salt). It’s challenging, but it’s the good kind of challenging.
Great but not sure on the speed of reputation loss.
by random guy no.9000 on 2019/02/13 22:51
First of all I love this game and am not half bad at it. I’m a pretty impatient person to be honest, and play it on 3speed until the Insurgents attack and take a zone. Then I switch the speed to normal to better gauge spending between military and civilian initiatives. I think the rep meter doesn’t adjust as well because I lost around 20 rep for “lack of stability” in one month and kept losing 3-4 rep every 10 seconds. I love this game but it’s kinda hard to play if you lose in the first 5 minutes?
Yeah

by robrulesall2 on 2019/02/13 18:49

I found plague inc to be phenomenal to this day, 5 years later, and so I feared that this game might not have been able to overcome plague inc, but I was fortunately wrong. The game is amazing and full of new features, and even though we’re only two updates in, you can tell that James and Co have learned much from plague inc, as the game is substantially more polished than plague inc was on launch.

It was fun at first but after the increasing challenge, it gets to a point where it’s simply no fun. I hate this game so much. I hate it. It makes want to throw my iPad off of a cliff. Stinking insurgents beating 3 coalition troops and a fully upgraded national troop with drone and air support. I hate this game. I hate it so much.
Noice
by Skullkid1013 on 2019/02/11 21:54
This game is a lot of fun. Unfortunately there needs to be a balance between each aspect of each part. You cannot focus on heavily gaining military advantage, you need to balance the reputation of yourself by support from the public, gain military advantage while keeping your combat abilities somewhat high and keeping your civilian’s support (you mostly use a foreign military which the public doesn’t like) and try to find a negotiation with the insurgents while keeping your corruption down and reputation strong. Every new aspect you provide to gain public support adds corruption to your government as your underlings gain money and bribe others to the cause, so you need to focus on “anti-corruption” deals. The basic rule of it is to find a strategy that is as balanced as you can make it. The game is fun, but extremely difficult and is meant for the patient and strategic thinker.

Unplayable garbage
by iamhootis on 2019/02/11 00:05
The game doesn’t even respond while playing!!! Alerts regularly pop up and can not be chosen, even though the game makes them more and more urgent. Buggy, prematurely released junk. Maybe I’ll try again in a couple years once the developers decide that user experience is as important as purchases.

by PapaSwirl on 2019/02/09 16:10
Enjoying the perspectives of how difficult this game can be in managing a regional rebuild after war. Tutorial training helped out and if you've played Plague Inc it'll be even easier. Pricing is fair and levels unlock as you progress. Music and graphics are perfect. Doesn't seem to have a major impact on device performance compared to other games right out of the gate. Great work!

Civilian and military and reputation and diplomacy, really well done - I guess screens could look nicer but main screen is fine to look at and gameplay is really good, makes you think and I love those
Well worth the money

great job guys
Very fun and engaging!

The game keeps you occupied and you’re constantly on your toes making sure everything is going well while putting out fires all around.
Great game

This is one of the funnest games I’ve ever played it super fun and challenging!
Well designed, well thought out development of the Plague, Inc engine

Kudos. Nice ambient sound design, too.
Options!

Solid

Does what it says
Really Challenging!
by 😏pugs are awesome on 2019/02/05 04:34
I love this game even though it is very challenging. It took me one try to beat it on casual however I spent a few hours completing the second one. I also wish that you could deploy more troops
Worth the M O N E Y

As a strategic genius who lives in a bunker I find this game really challenging & fun.
Awesomeness
by 77bloodbane77 on 2018/12/08 01:25
This game is awesome because they took there old game kept the format (to some extent) and made it greater. I love this game because everything that happens for most of the game is determined in the first 3 minutes because most upgrades take time to be used (which they should) and the in depth timing strategy you have to use throughout the rest of the game. Love the maps and love that the governors are radically different from each other so each game takes different strategy. There is really one thing I don’t like about the game it’s that when you put troops in a zone if you haven’t scouted that zone already your troops wont help neighboring zones fight which is kind of anoying. Some suggestions for future updates (although I know you already have great ones planned) it would be cool if we could play as the underpowered rebels and try to either get the best peace deal possible or just take over. And it would be neat to see more types of military troops maybe like dogs that sniff out and tell you where the next zone to be attacked is or some riot control that contain insergunts until you can send in real troops to wipe em out. Thanks for another great game please keep up the awesome work!
A nice idea.. not perfect
by osteostuddoc on 2018/12/11 02:55
Really enjoyed the premise of this game. These guys did a great job with Plague, Inc. and have got another good game going here. This time around is more like fighting off the infection rather than causing it. Really enjoyed the various mechanics of the campaign to improve the board, make my soldiers better, and reduce insurgents. Felt like there was a meaningful balance between trying to make improvements while limiting outside influences and corruption. There are elements that feel in place just to slow progress that I felt could be improved. It would be nice to have more focus on intelligence in the campaign as ways to reduce insurgency movements. This was my biggest complaint (and not that bad, more of just a gripe). If there was a way to predict and then counter insurgents movements to better my combat that would make the game better. Also, wish I had options for some sort of special operations or covert action force to go into an insurgent held area to somehow reduce their impact or remove their leadership to slow their progress when I’ve got main forces committed elsewhere. And it would be nice to select where I send airstrikes rather than just wherever insurgents are. This would give better control over potential civilian losses.
Huge potential
by Baggy2323 on 2019/01/12 23:54
This is a great game and is definitely worth 2 dollars, I’d even pay 7 for this. This game could be better like if you could combine plague inc and this it would amazing. See you could create your own disease but instead of trying to infest the whole WOLRD you just try to do it to help stop the enemies, or whatever their called. Another thing they could add is a bigger map. I know they have different maps but I’d like it if each one was a bit bigger. And one last thing is a wish you could customize how many troops you could put in one area in stead of just one group. I was trying to fight off a group but my team was losing and I kept trying to put more troops in but I was only able to put in one. But overall it really is a great game. It’s addicting, I love the strategy yet not completely based off strategy which I also like. The graphics are amazing and perfectly my style, which is not trying to be crazy realistic but still pretty good. So great game would recommend it keep making games like this and I’ll keep buying them, and it could be even better though and that’s what I am exited about. Peace
Has potential
by Ghostfire6113 on 2019/01/08 19:19
Since my last review vanished, I’ll add it again. I concur with what a lot of people have said, it has an amazing amount of potential...however... it has some serious balancing issues. I played all the maps, viruses, and difficulties on plague inc, it was challenging and sometimes frustrating, but failure was usually due to my long-term strategic or short-term tactical failures. Rebel inc. doesn’t seem to share that value, many things just drain reputation or skyrocket inflation and corruption without much benefit. The costs of countering insurgents are also highly unbalanced; i fully understand risk/reward play, but the rewards of the military upgrades just aren’t enough. Also, I really miss the customization of your viruses, there’s virtually nothing like that here. You get different governors but their effects aren’t that extreme, or game changing for the most part. Adding things (like the dna changes in plague inc) would be nice, smaller bumps are standalone, bigger bonuses would come with trade offs, etc. You could couple them with your favorite governor and do a min/max sort of thing, high risk/high-reward and all that. So far, I ran through all the maps and governors, and haven’t had much interest in going back; there just isn’t much replay ability to pull me back.
Great game from the makers of Plague Inc.
by ChronoLegion on 2019/01/21 00:20
Can’t get enough of this, especially after the addition of advisors (similar to genes in Plague Inc.). You unlock those by winning games and can use them in future play-throughs. Some are useful, others not so much. Each governor is different from the other, so your strategy will change. With the Economist, you have to use your cash sparingly, since you only get a new influx once a year instead of once a month. With the General, you can get a head start training troops and building garrisons (all others have to wait for insurgents to show up). The General also has awesome upgrades for troops that turn them into killing machines. Unlocking the Warlord is tough: you either have to beat every map with every other governor on Brutal difficulty or pay real money. Unlike Plague Inc., initiatives take time to deploy and spread. Just because you purchased a highway improvement doesn’t mean all highways are instantly fixed (hey, real life is like that!). You can also invite international organizations to help you for free, but at the cost of increased inflation and corruption.
GOTY 2018
by Salem Smitherstone on 2018/12/19 08:40
Rebel Inc is a phenomenal game, for its exploration of the complexities and nuances of political decisions, management of infrastructure, all while conducting a civil war. There is a lot going on, but it never feels overwhelming thank to an intuitive interface, and an integrated tutorial system that highlights mechanics with well timed prompts during gameplay. On top of being a great game, Rebel Inc. allows the player a more involved and realistic insight into the realities faced by many government bodies in the world today. Many of these third world countries, especially those with war-devastated infrastructure find themselves in a tight position between first world powers with conflicting interests, the exploitation from first world industrial powers with interest in raw materials, and the crippling consequences that come with failed loans from the World Bank. I hope that, as the game expands, that it will delve further into these complex issues. With the additions made in the latest update, I see that beginning to happen already. Thank you James and the Ndemic Creations Team, you have produced a phenomenal gaming experience.
Lots of potential
by MyNameIs...i don't CAAARE on 2018/12/10 16:41
The amount of strategy required and the simulation that this game provides is insane but needs more to be able to live up to its predecessor, Plague Inc. We need more choices, maps, governors, balance out the insurgents by either reducing their overall strength or increase the power of our national army or coalition. The insurgents just pop up so quickly to the point where it is EXTREMELY OVERWHELMING. If we could recruit new armies quicker and more efficiently, it would balance it out more. Or just reduce how quickly our reputation goes down because of the insurgents. But I’ve lost count of how many times I lost because the insurgents just wipe the floor with my armies even after I upgrade them but the upgrades seem to make such little to no difference. I loved the game at first but it has too many balancing issues. I can’t wait to see what’s in store for the game in the future and I hope it matches or becomes even better than Plague Inc one day. James and the team are great devs who always seem to listen to any feedback. I have a lot of faith in them to expand on this even more.
Different and in the very good way
by LunarServant on 2018/12/15 03:38
i’ve played the heck out of plague inc. i’ve gotten the vast majority of the virus’s in that game, and finding out that this was made by the same devs peaked my interest. it’s very good so far, because instead of causing mass panic and infecting the earth, your trying to stabilize a country. you’ll start by rolling out projects from your HQ, and then contend with insurgents as you try to stabilize the region further with roads, medical supplies and what not with a upgrade system similar to plague inc. but be careful, the more upgrades you buy, the more you’ll inflate the upgrades prices, as well as there being a chance for your government to become corrupt. that, and you’ll be fending off various insurgent attacks and locating their camps with drones and bombers (but don’t get carried away, you might end up blowing up the people your trying to help). so in short, if you enjoyed plague inc, you’ll want to take a look at Rebel inc. (side note: you’ll need to use two shuffle word things for naming your operation. custom naming isn’t here yet i think)
Potential but needs serious rebalancing.
by ninja368 on 2018/12/17 08:58
Good game, but it needs a serious rebalance as of right now the brutal difficulty is virtually impossible to beat on map four. The insurgents are too strong and pop up in three separate zones. There is no way on Earth to contain them and often they’re stronger than your coalition troops. Corruption is out of control as well and upgrades don’t seem to help at all. I’ll re-evaluate my rating once the balance issues are addressed. Edit:// Updating and dropping my rating. Everyone giving this game good reviews is playing the first few missions which are interesting and fun. Once you get to the later levels it’s literally impossible to win on the harder difficulties. The final mission is so obscenely hard I’m astounded. Coalition troops can’t win even with four armies supporting them. Regions will not stabilize even if you have half the upgrades purchased. They go up one tick per time unit, but you’re losing rep at a rate of 3 per unit. Simultaneously the invincible rebels are swarming zones non-stop and demolishing your rep. This game has some SERIOUS balance issues that need to be addressed and they don’t become apparent until you’ve played for a bit.
Wish I could give a negative star review
by tmchristen on 2018/12/23 03:58
Now I love plague inc. so when I saw this I was super excited, but this game is ridiculous. First off the people you gave to use in order to unlock other areas do not support what needs to be done on that specific map. The insurgent rate at which they spawn is absolutely absurd. Coalition forces need to be able to stay spawned longer. You literally have to choose either do what needs to be done for civilians and let the insurgents run rampant or choose military over civilian development but you cannot stabilize the region. Corruption is increased wayyyyyy too fast with no quick way to bring it down. You literally have 18 months to two years to develop the area before the bad guys show up, sometimes they show up in one spot and other times they show up in 3 different sections and that is when you just start your game over. You lose reputation like it’s a $1 sale, once you start ticking down because of the stability just restart the game because you will not get it back fast enough. The spawn time for the national forces needs to be shortened since the coalition forces can be summoned almost immediately. I would give this game an honest -2 stars, very very disappointed.
Waste of time
by TrviaCrackster on 2019/01/23 16:57
This game starts out cool they kept they old format from plague and it works ok but after you do the first level and you get to the next map you have to use the economist leader to unlock the next map. Well this is virtually impossible even on casual...you earn money WAY too slow while the terrorists seem to grow at an inordinate pace. Even if you use the civil leader on the second map it’s almost impossible because the terrorist grow too quickly. This game is only fun if you use it as a time killer and you play on the first level with the first leader that’s it. ***update*** AFTER PLAYING THIS GAME FOR LITERALLY HOURS ON END AND TRYING EVERY DIFFERENT TYPE OF COMBINATION IMAGINABLE IF YOU PAY THE CORRUPTION OFF AT THE BEGINNING OF THE GAME YOU DONT HAVE ENOUGH MONEY TO COMBAT INSURGENTS. IF YOU PAY TO INCREASE HEALTH AND EDUCATION AND WATER YOUR CORRUPTION GOES THROUGH THE ROOF. IF YOU TAKE STEPS TO COMBAT CORRUPTION THEN AGAIN YOU DONT HAVE MONEY TO DFEAT TERRORIST. IF YOU SAVE YOUR MONEY YOU GET ACCUSED OF WASTING MONEY AND HURTS YOUR REPUTATION SO YOU SPEND A LITTLE ON MAKING LIVING BETTER AND TO COMBAT CORRUPTION THEN USE SOME TO GET A MILITARY COALITION AND NATIONAL DEFENSE FORCE YOU HAVE A CHANCE BUT THEN THE TERRORIST OUTPACE YOU ON GROWTH HURTING YOUR REPUTATION. THIS GAME NEEDS SERIOUS HELP IT WOULD BE GOOD IF THE TERRORIST DIDNT GROW AS FAST, NATIONAL FORCES TRAIN MORE QUICKLY, MAKE CORRUPTION AFFECT YOUR REPUTATION LESS.
Huge Potential
by cab4154 on 2018/12/07 02:03
This is an excellent game with everything that I wanted but never had: a challenging, strategic, and realistic political simulator. There is far more depth to the game than I thought was even present in Plague Inc, and the game mechanics need some balancing, but it’s very fine for a new release. I played through all levels on brutal, but got stuck on the last map. But the insurgent mechanics need to be nerfed, because my fully modernized and mechanized coalition forces can only move a few tiles before some ragtag insurgents that fall out of the sky behind friendly lines are able to take a major city and end the game. And even if I catch up to them in time, it doesn’t matter because they are literally invincible unless I corner them, which typically requires 3-4 units (i.e. everyone) so I have to pull everything from the front lines just to stabilize the smallest threats. And the reputation needs to be booned. Otherwise it’s a great game that I’m looking forward to!
Fun game
by GoneTogue on 2019/01/19 02:00
The many things you have to manage makes it feel like a more I. Depth The Dictator game but actually seeing your success and failures on a map. A cool idea is more types of units. If you get enough reputation more and more blue soldiers (blue soldiers are better but not native in the city so the occupied do not like them, and green ones are native there and receive much less hate from the occupied) to come. For the insurgence they should get black soldiers (there is a chance that outside countries can help the insurgence but it only makes them harder) that are more elite and would spawn on the map. A problem is a lack of role play. If I want to play as an authoritarianship I should be able to march soldiers faster which will hurt reputation as well as having faster national soldier training times and more of them too. To deal with that you could threaten journalists to lie about you or occupy urban areas to stop corruption.
Challenging, in a great way
by A Mercer Review on 2018/12/05 23:07
So far I have loved playing this, already put over 5 hours into this game. I played Plague Inc. for a long time and I can say this can and will be a better version of it, I love the extra depth they’ve added, whether it’s negotiating peace relations, interacting with your coalition and such. It’s also very challenging because the enemy can be very brutal even in normal mode, which can take a lot of time testing the abilities and understanding how to use your military with just the right timing. I personally feel like the enemies toughness could need a little lightening up but you don’t want to lose the challenge either. It can be very satisfying when you finally destroy the insurgents. Lastly, the tutorial and tips are very good, I would just ask that you help us understand the peace process a little better and how to end the game. Thank you for a great follow up! Keep up the work!
You want your stupid review, here it is.
by Kr33my on 2019/01/11 16:35
First off, this game is extremely unrealistic. Second, the mechanics are broken stupid. Third, sure the creativity is great!; maybe the devs should stick to killing off everyone with infections rather than trying to resolve conflict. Why do I say these things? No country or it’s people will demand things that a government can’t provide during a war with the enemy in its own country. The governors are all idiots because they raise corruption and inflation . Why don’t you actually let us input some type of government without becoming totalitarians. And you make the insurgents completely stubborn when clearly the players can (at multiple times) corner them. But the game spawns some idiots in the darkest corner of the map to drop my reputation in a heart beat. Creating a military doesn’t cause corruption if it needs to fight a war. If people wanted to stabilize their country, they wouldn’t act the way they do in this game. Sure it’s just being optimistic but you guys don’t even input all of the realistic aspects of life and politics into this game to make it as hard as it is. Fix it, I’d give it no stars.
Great game with a few issues
by Bigdonf on 2019/01/11 18:12
Just like plague in I fell in love with this game from the start. The strategy is deep yet easy to understand. Inclusions like the different maps and governors add variety’s to the game that plague sometimes lacked with every designer feeling the same. The games difficulty’s feel well balance except for the the insurgents. They are not impossible to deal with but they feel to strong. You know you have a problem when fully upgraded soldiers with air support and a nearby garrison stubble to liberate a tile. In addition while the fact you have to encircle insurrectionists to eliminate them is cool in theory it is hard to do in practice. The fact they can basically spawn anywhere(with some map specific spawns) means that it can be up to ring to decide how easy it is to deal with. Sometimes they spawn on a corner and can be easily surrounded . Other they are in the middle of the map and spread like a plague. This will be 5 stars once the insurgents are either nerfed or the soldiers are buffed.
Noice
by Skullkid1013 on 2019/02/11 21:54
This game is a lot of fun. Unfortunately there needs to be a balance between each aspect of each part. You cannot focus on heavily gaining military advantage, you need to balance the reputation of yourself by support from the public, gain military advantage while keeping your combat abilities somewhat high and keeping your civilian’s support (you mostly use a foreign military which the public doesn’t like) and try to find a negotiation with the insurgents while keeping your corruption down and reputation strong. Every new aspect you provide to gain public support adds corruption to your government as your underlings gain money and bribe others to the cause, so you need to focus on “anti-corruption” deals. The basic rule of it is to find a strategy that is as balanced as you can make it. The game is fun, but extremely difficult and is meant for the patient and strategic thinker.
Good so far, could be great
by Cabtx46 on 2019/01/26 16:56
Only had the game for two days so far. In that time, I have developed a crush on this app. It’s fun, there is no doubt about it. If you liked Plague Inc, then you will be easily seduced by this game. I plan to update my review down the road, but so far I recommend it. The only cumbersome problem I have right now is the unlocking of the advisors. I’m not sure what they actually do once unlocked. They don’t *seem* to have any effect on the game, but perhaps I just have not noticed it yet. I am struggling with the hardest play mode. It seems I have tried every combination and can’t seem to win. Hopefully I will be able to master it, however, right now it just makes me crazy. Anyway, definitely worth a couple of bucks to purchase. My only real complaint so far is I don’t like buying an app and then being asked to buy additional add-ons later. Thanks for the new game!
A great game initially, but insurgents are extremely frustrating.
by David R. D. on 2019/01/13 00:09
Let me just start off by saying that if the insurgents were fixed and had more ways to deal with them, this would be an easy 5/5. Everything in the game is so strategic and balanced and just fun to play with. I’ve spent several hours so far on this game as well as Plague inc. The big thing holding this game back is the Insurgents. They are unbelievably powerful and numerous. They keep coming and can seemingly spawn literally anywhere in the map, yet you can kill them unless you surround them on all sides of their territory, which can require up to 5 military units! It’s ridiculous and extremely annoying to deal with. A good fix would be to have the option to upgrade your units in a way to where they can kill them without having to surround them, or something along those lines. That, in my opinion, is a major flaw and is borderline game breaking. The game is fantastic otherwise.
Unexpected Turn of Events
by Accendo11 on 2019/02/14 12:07
Developer: per request, I will take the initiative to leave my feedback about Rebel Inc.; partly because of the pun, but mostly for ego reasons. Lol So about this app. It’s an absolute game changer. No I’m not a brown-noser, let me explain why. So the first app, Plague; was incredibly captivating to me. The most staggering part I remember about Plague, was just how “Immersive” the potential was from the User’s perspective. It was totally unforgettable to experience it in that way, let alone with an iOS app...Repeatedly. What really took me by storm was thinking about how successfully developed it was to mimic or coincide methodically with real world “cause & effect” type of events; while incorporating a uniquely guided, creative-imagery structure to successfully put me in the moment frankly. With Plague, the level of impossible had been set higher in my opinion. I used to think there’s no way anything will top that or even can, for that matter. But now here’s this app, and I’m just blown away at how the theme was kept alive, while presenting it on an entirely different and uniquely new premise. Iconic. Mind boggling really, trying to convince myself you aren’t a mad scientist but that could be a cause & effect thing. Lol Bravo...for days. I love it, ok enough said. I’m busy...
Game needs fixing!!!
by FixYourStupidGame on 2018/12/23 22:55
UPDATE: Game is unplayable in current state. Insurgents are much too powerful. Coalition soldiers never stay long enough. Zones are not stabilized fast enough. Everything takes too long and is too expensive. Not fun. I do NOT recommend this game until they completely fix it. So far, waste of money. I really like this game. Its exciting and in somewhat the same format that Plague Inc. which works and is fun...but the game makes it way too hard for you too advance. Im on the second mission of this game, and even on normal mode, it just becomes way too overwhelming and difficult to push back insurgents. First it takes time for military too arrive at a certain destination, and you cant even get your military started until there is a military threat, so youre forced to choose temporary soldiers for fights. When soldiers do get on a point correctly the insurgents move away almost immediately and start attacking another zone way faster than they should. Insurgents are incredibly broken in this game. I want too like it, I do, but time and time again, insurgents ruin everything and I have no control over it. - Insurgents come too quickly and come in way bigger numbers than they should. -Temporary military will only stay a little, but regular military takes forever to train and deploy. - With the amount of insurgents and the amount of military given, insurgents will always win. The game is good, but they need to rethink the whole threat level.
Good? Yes, but there is always room for improvement.
by Music Heir on 2018/12/15 17:02
Rebel Inc. is a fantastic creation of a surrealistic world of common lifestyle, struggle, and politics. I am very impressed with the foundation of this game and the possibilities there on. I admire the fact there are so many options to achieving stabilization. I just wish I had more information about what happens when I start an initiative or raise a military. For example, military; how long does it take to train soldiers, and the difference between local militia and coalition soldiers? Another example, corruption (cuz it’s a BIG factor); some I initiatives reduce corruption over time. Question: how much corruption does it reduce over time? If I had to add a perk of my own, I would want something that allowed me to improve, accelerate, or even micromanage a certain initiative. When I tried using garrisons to support my troops, I was wondering when the team in charge would make a decision, and sometimes I wanted garrisons in places other than where they were. (Never mind everything still working out.) I think being aware and being in control are important factors in any scenario, game or otherwise. (Well that, and I like getting my hands dirty with the grunts and desk-jockeys!)
Fun and challenging
by Honeybadgerxj76 on 2018/12/18 14:31
This is a really fun game. Great way to pass time. The game gets more and more challenging as it goes and really tests your ability to plan and choose upgrades appropriately as well as manage funds. I reduced a star because the information pop ups that occur constantly throughout gameplay are incredibly annoying. I’ll be really focused trying to move troops around to corner insurgents before more show up and a pop up will jump into your face telling you that troops are in a certain region. Like no crap, I just put them there. Also, the info pop ups that tell you how to play the game even though there’s a tutorial are annoying too. It should be logical that if I’ve unlocked the level by playing previous levels, then I know how to play.
Long time fan of Inc. Games
by Redhotmom80 on 2018/12/09 20:21
I bought this recently because it was made by the same developer as Plague Inc, one of my favorite mobile game developers. This game definitely resembles the dev’s previous work, and I look forward to future updates. However, some complaints. 1. Sometimes the UI will bug out and prevent me from backing out of a selection process for map, governor, or difficulty selection unless I restart the application. 2. The overall difficulty of the game is alright, and the different governors with different map combinations help make them feel more alive. However, adding in the DNA modifiers like in Plague inc to help boost/hinder the game’s progress would be a welcome addition. That’s about it for now. Looking forward to special scenarios, additional tweaks, and some new features.
Great game
by GHOSTRIDER6101 on 2018/12/27 08:24
I love this game and am also a fan of Plague Inc. I have beat all the viruses on super brutal so I came into this game with plenty of experience and still find it challenging but possible. A few suggestions, a actual rebel mode would be amazing! If you could rebel and conquer an entire continent rising up from rags to riches! Another suggestion is an endless mode. I think it has tons of potential in which you could stack your army in the same country and have even more types of army’s like riot control or the navy. You would battle against endless waves of insurgents and enemies as you rack up and endless and unstoppable army! I hope you consider my suggestions as I think they would make the game better and much more diverse.
An insightful game by a renown developer
by Tiger1230 on 2018/12/25 22:54
James has taken the game style of Plague Inc. and with it has created a similarly-played game with a great window to the US Middle East operations. While our media only shows the civilian casualties, drone strikes, and rebel negotiations, this game reveals the sources behind our current knowledge (or lack of) in the Middle East. From balancing initiatives and corruption to deciding on ruthless internationals or weak nationalists as your region’s defense, every aspect of this game puts you on the line on whether a cover-up works, an insurgency get rerouted, or whether the peace talks fail. While I could go on and on, I can only say two things. To those who own Plague Inc, this won’t disappoint you. To those new to this franchise, hop right on in!
Amazing. Absolutely freakin' amazing.
by corruption_of_lol on 2018/12/14 15:00
After years of having the life scared out of me countless times by Plague, Inc., Ndemic drops another amazing game in the form of Rebel, Inc. Instead of just being another military strategy game, this one has an amazing mix of political science and military strategy. You fight government corruption at the same time as you're fighting an insurgency, while trying to stabilize the region by gaining popularity, loyalty, building relationships, trust with the population, and infrastructure. Ndemic, I hope you read this. You guys are geniuses. In a market saturated by the same things over and over again, you guys have created an amazing style all of your own. Thank you so much for sharing it with us. Cheers!
Way too fast
by Good game .... on 2019/01/18 17:23
Things happen way too quickly, How does it make sense that I can’t start training troops until I’m about to be attacked, I understand that excess foreign troops will decrease reputation if left to long but when enemies pop up all over the map at one time it is hard to deal with, all the while trying to make decisions and spend money where needed. The game makes it very difficult to progress, Not enough money and whatever you spend the money on will only have a short lived effect. Big fan of plague as I have beaten every level on brutal difficulty, that being said if I can’t get passed the second stage of this game on casual something needs to change, really want this to be a game that I play often but as of right now I’ve wasted 2$
The best!
by NinjaDogz on 2018/12/12 03:50
Way better than plague. Being a military guy, I absolutely enjoy the ability to destroy the “insurgency” haha. I would like there to be more Governors, maybe have some US military type governors with pros and cons, that way you can take over in a better, more different way. One US governor of the area might be a military spec ops guy with the ability to quickly deploy units and have them fight harder, but con is that the people hate them even more than normal and they won’t cooperate as much? Not really sure on the idea, but I’ll let y’all run with it! Also, maybe another is like a General, and so on so forth. Thank you! Good luck with this amazing game James and everyone else!
A+ Amazing

This game is highly addictive. It does cost a little extra for some more features like governors and maps, but it’s totally worth it. The controls are easy and simple and there a quick and easy tutorial to follow if you want to learn how to play. The graphics are beautiful and and it gives you a situation map kind of feel. This game is a politically accurate game. Trying to understand the balance of military strength and diplomacy in certain countries around the world. I would like to see maybe being to name our operations ourselves rather than randomly generate names, as well as maybe add some vehicles, a AC-130 spectre gunship, and some special forces
Amazing job

I feel like I am playing a game I am used to yet it’s concepts are different loving it I loved plague inc. and I’m loving this one to it would be so cool if I’m the future you can implement maybe like a whole wide world collapse and you are trying to stabilize countries using the same in game ways just on a bigger scale like plague inc. way of infecting the world your trying to fix it and bring back stability and is their a mode for playing as the insurgents that would be pretty cool to see it fork their side of the gameplay any other ways live the game having no issues with it and I can’t put it down as of yet it’s amazing I love it good job with this one
First Impressions
by Quinny S. on 2018/12/10 19:38
I finished my first game on Casual and found the game to involve several mechanics that I enjoyed to a great extent. I wish the tutorial had introduced me to a more thorough explanation of Corruption and the difference between actual Corruption and Corruption Risk. To those who are considering this game, if you liked Plague Inc, this will definitely check all the boxes for you! Other than that, I found that the game featuring a complex system of pacifying a region to be really fun, and I believe I will continue to explore this game on harder difficulties. I saw only a few maps, and I hope that more will be released, as well as several situations comparable to the developer’s other game, Plague Inc. I look forward to what comes next!
Yes, yes a hundred a fifty million times yes.

I’m already in love with Rebel Inc. I’ve been playing plague inc for years, and was so excited to see that you were producing a new game. I love the political/militaristic balancing act of stabilizing a region, and it’s super rewarding when you get it right. If I had any ideas to make it better, more maps, and diverse locales. Every map feels like it takes place in the Middle East. Maybe adding maps of stabilizing areas affected by drug cartels, or organized crime in locations like rainforest, bustling urban areas and other less desert style areas. Also having deployed coalition soldiers that have squadron or platoon names would be cool. Thanks for the new game!
A new experience ( even with similarities to Plague )
by OSBastard on 2018/12/10 19:44
First off fans of Plague will notice some similarities, but rest assured that this is more than a “special virus” + reskin. Tactical placement plays a much more important role in this game. The game also plays much more like a “reverse” Plague, having to quarantine areas with insurrection and purge them one by one, while remembering crushing one flare up is a long ways from winning the war. Perhaps the most important similarity to Plague is the effort that has been made to ground the game with strong echoes of the real world. The challenges, events, and more call back again and again to the ongoing US conflicts in Afghanistan / Iraq. This is one of those touches that really enhance the experience I’ve played all of the maps at least once, and am looking forward to expansions / new game modes. I previously expressed disappointment in GameCenter integration, but that has been fixed. 👍 PS: this was the first paid game I ever preordered for iPhone. The moment I saw who it was from I knew I wanted to be all over it.
Lots of questionable design decisions
by Taznak on 2019/01/23 10:04
Game is fun at the start, and I did get my 2 dollars’ worth of entertainment. That said, I’m done with the game and will move on to better games now. My issues with the game are: 1. You can have a single insurgent and he’s immortal unless he gets completely surrounded, AND there’s a multiple bases spawning enemies like him, and the number of insurgents is random, and you’re woefully unprepared to deal with them early on. I have to restart stages over and over until I get few enemy spawns. 2. The list of investments is full of newbie traps, and it’s not at all obvious what they are. 3. It takes ages to train national soldiers; in fact it takes so long that coalition soldiers have to leave well before your national soldiers are out, which means you’re forced to take massive reputation damage to keep your coalition soldiers around against their will. 4. There’s not that much strategic depth. You figure out which are the good investments and in which order you should get them, which are the bad investments to avoid, and then you always do the same and you win or you lose depending on how lucky or unlucky you get with random events and (especially) with insurgent spawns. It’s somewhat fun, but it’s mostly just frustrating.
Pretty unique concept
by FTB_SLAYER on 2018/12/17 23:19
If you liked plague inc. you're going to like rebel inc. same concept but beside it being a world-wide spread epidemic this game cuts down to a large region within it there are tiny other regions, based on the Middle East and your goal is to stabilize all small regions while micro managing rebels and keep them at bay while you reach 100% stability across all the map that's it also they replace the bubbles as political decision seen in other games which goes well. Liked it so much it still manage to keep its roots and adds more and it evolves fantastically also it felt more down to earth and more realistically in some form.
Enjoyable and Easy to Learn
by MikeyPanda777 on 2018/12/08 21:44
I had previously played Plague Inc. and thought it was a great mobile game that entertained and got one to use their brains. Now this is the type of political stimulation I can enjoy. Making decisions to help locals and gain their support. The old Hearts and Minds approach. While trying to fend off pesky insurgents without doing too much damage that will turn people against you. Very realistic game and if anything I would love to see another version come out where you can even do more with foreign relations. Possibly cut ties with countries supporting insurgents and likewise. Lot of possibilities but this game right now is so much fun. Enjoy it.
Great game
by Pack mule 9 88 on 2018/12/29 02:12
Ive been looking for a fun game to be able to pick up in my spare time, and it seems that this one more than fits the bill. In fact, it’s really hard to put down. A very easy game to pick up and fits and adapts to most people’s play styles. I tried this game because I enjoyed plague inc. (another game I would defiantly recommend) and I couldn’t be happier with how this one is. Revel inc. is such a fun game, and with easy to follow and learn guidelines it made the game fun from the start. I can’t wait to see what else this awesome game has to offer and would defiantly recommend it to anyone looking for the next great game. 👍
Great game
by Lord Thag on 2018/12/05 03:44
Just won my first game of this little gem. The game itself puts you in the role of a government official tasked with restoring peace and order in a region destabilized by war. You have numerous laws, initiatives, measures and of course, the military at your disposal. The game is basically the political and military version of herding cats. You have to convince the public you (and not the rebels) are in their best interests, while fending off rebel uprisings and attacks, which pop up like brush fires everywhere. The game has a lot of moving parts to balance. Your military fights the rebels but they flee and infect other zones easily, and coalition troops drop your support. The measures you pass can help pacify the locals but raid corruptions and inflation. The whole thing is a carefully tuned balancing act between opposing, exclusive choices. Which means it’s tense, fun and engaging. In addition, the interface and gameplay are clean and easy to follow, keeping your focus on the decisions you need to make. Fun game, one of the better strategy games on iOS for sure.
A Rewarding Step Up From Plague Inc.
by Mr. Fl0wers on 2019/01/26 21:48
Some developers have a difficult time surpassing their first successful game with another. Ndemic, on the other hand, has done a significantly impressive job creating a game with a similar formula to Plague Inc. As similar as it is, the game demands that you strategize and carefully plan ahead to carry out your decisions effectively and efficiently. Instead of disease and infection, you have stability and reputation. Instead of cures, you have insurgency activity. Instead of evolving, you have military activity – you get the idea! If you’re a fan of Plague Inc., Rebel Inc. has a lot to offer to impress both old and new fans.
This game is fantastic
by invertedlight on 2019/01/20 20:42
This game is a piece of art. It is extremely addicting and I have burned hours playing it. I also love the new update that added in advisors they are extremely useful and maybe even a little OP. Because when your in mid game and you have 30 rep but your making 5 income a month because of the tax collector your almost guaranteed a win. But on to why I left this review, please make a wiki or add in the ability to turn on nerd stats so we can see where each initiative Benefits is and how much. Again thank you for the great game and I hope you make bank off it.
Nope
by Zeryck9 on 2019/01/09 21:19
Has potential. Unfortunately by the time Military unlocks you end up spending all of your time and very limited resources on increasing military while the insurgents nonstop attacks. By the time any tiny bit of headway is made then you have to send your troops away or you lose decent amounts of rep (you can’t get replacements). The national guard option is a joke and the expensive air strikes do very little besides make you lose rep even quicker. All the options for building infrastructure goes right out the window and it’s nothing but military which makes the aforementioned options completely moot. Especially since you can’t even spend money on military to get prepared AT ALL until it unlocks (which is when insurgents are already attacking). Sorry I wasted the $2. Unfortunate as Plague was such a great game.
So amazingly frustrating
by The1andOUI1 on 2018/12/05 15:51
Never before have I wanted to both kill a game and play another game. The game is both fun, challenging but also educational. It make you be both the “good cop” and the “bad cop” in the problems you are faced. It make you think in a multifaceted mind set with both the present and the future at risk. The thing I said after I finished a round is that I wanted to play again. I now have a deeper understanding of how hard it can be to be in politics and all the factor you have to be aware of at each moment. And how the tables can just turn at a moment. Mind blown.
Unbalanced Gameplay
by LoudSiren1738 on 2018/12/23 22:31
First of all, the game is very fun to play, but it is near impossible to play after getting to the Banker Governor. In order to actually destroy insurgent rebels, you have to corner them using at least 3 of your armys. And because you only have 4 of those that stay, it gets very hard. Most outcomes are determined simply by luck. Also, the public opinion runs out too quickly. When I am trying to keep the territory’s from being captured from 5 different groups of insurgents, all I can simply do is play a long loosing battle. The fact that the enemy captures the territory faster than your troops can move makes the game unfair. And upgrades such as the “local militia” which makes it harder for the insurgents to capture the territory, don’t even affect it at all. You constantly are.. 1 chasing the enemy out of territory 2 while they run, capture territory back 3 they capture the territory they ran into 4 now repeat step one This is why the game is so difficult even on normal mode. The enemy grows so fast, and you have so little troops to do anything about it. Either having more permanently deployed troops or decrease the rate at which the insurgents grow. -thanks
Wonderful, Absolutely Wonderful

The thing that made me love Plague Inc so much was how immersive and different the game and setting was. With easy to grasp mechanics with some difficulty in mastering the game, it allowed for a ton of time to reply and learn all the new tricks and ways of playing. Rebel Inc has me feeling nostalgic, from the setting to the mechanics to the smallest detail, there isn’t a lot of things to say against this game. The attention to detail is prevalent and it is clear that a lot of love and work went into this game. While being similar to the mechanics of Plague Inc, it also has enough of its own material to be new and exciting. There are a couple things that I don’t like, but that’s only a personal opinion and I’m sure that once I find out the tricks of the game, and a couple patches later I’m sure this game could reach a 10/10 easily. I’m very happy to see this “series family” grow and become much more then a single IOS game about destroying the world. TL;DR this is a very nice and enjoyable game. Worth the cash.
Great Twist on the Original
by Moxthafox on 2018/12/12 14:21
Rebel Inc. is another demonstration of just how detailed and intricate Ndemic’s work is to everyone else. There are so many different things that can happen within the game, adding to its replayability value. I love the variety between regions, which forces you to choose different strategies that best fit the attributes of a certain area. It’s easy to learn, yet hard to master; it has a great interface with as much information as you need for each area as well. I truly recommend this game for anyone that enjoyed Plague Inc., or anyone else for that matter. Great job, Ndemic!
Unbelievable!
by bigdaddyisawesome0123456789 on 2018/12/05 03:00
Making another game that acts like Plague but is totally different seems like an impossible task. However this is exactly what Ndemic did here. It’s release night on version 1.01 - a version that is infamous for bugs across not only games but software in general - and I see absolutely nothing wrong here. The gameplay is user friendly, the story is interesting literally from the moment you start the application, and the graphics are stunning. Keep in mind I am writing this review 10 minutes after release and I love the game already.
Educational - not in a bad way!
by Jinchoung on 2018/12/08 08:00
The real opportunity with games is illuminating how complex, dynamic systems work. It's really ripe to tackle subjects like economics and politics in a robust way but few designers attempt it. Gladly, the people from Plague Inc haven't shied away from tackling the economic, political and military aspects of tackling a counter-insurgency campaign. I cannot, of course, speak to its accuracy as a layman, but from what i've read in newspaper articles for the last couple of decades (alas), it seems true and crystalized some of the notions that were not clearly realized. Great production values, very clear and easy to understand gameplay, lots of interesting decisions to be made and a rarity - a musical score that does not make me instantly go to settings to turn it off! The music here is unobtrusive and adds a great sense of atmosphere and flavor. Truly ambitious and even ballsy in this era where people use anything and everything as an excuse to feign being offended. Kudos.
Nearly Perfect
by Redsheep@i-2000 on 2019/01/28 05:29
Long time Plague Inc. player. This game is really well done. Its setting is accurate and it addresses the more sensitives topics respectfully. The game itself is very fun to play and very in depth for a mobile game. One addition from Plague Inc. who’s integration would be interesting is the scenarios feature, as while the game is already made up of scenarios, there are several ways to carry out such an addition. I personally would like to see scenarios that are more oriented towards the different aspects of the game, specifically military. Overall, on par with Plague Inc. at 5/5
