good game
I love this game
by xXthe-memeXx on 2020/08/06 03:19
Much fun, super realistic, so realistic I started the virus in China but then it started in real life and then sadly I lost that game but anyways much fun for an app
Super Realistic!
by RoadHouse XD on 2020/08/05 15:13
Never thought I’d see such a game such close to reality on the App Store but, HERE IT IS!
Awesome Game
by Crazy_clb on 2020/08/05 00:54
All around excellent game. I love that you can unlock all the features without paying money and the gameplay is simple but requires real strategy to complete. An excellent concept and a great game.
Fun
by Dr Tel Megiddo on 2020/08/04 21:09
It is beatable
Who needs this game when you can do it in real life.

Wow
by makaaayla KK on 2020/08/04 17:16
Love it, there’s something satisfying watching all life on earth die while desperately attempting to stay afloat. 👍
Worth Buying
by NucleusGamingYT on 2020/08/04 06:17
Definitely worth it, amazing game that simulates a disease that you control and evolve.
很不错的一款游戏!

Glitch with requesting
by cow man2998 on 2020/08/03 01:30
Hi I love this game however there is a weird glitch with requesting for stuff I did it once and my family said no and I tried it again a couple years later and I can’t thank you.
It’s not bad

Good game
by Tv Man the Dude Derp on 2020/08/02 04:39
Best mobile game I’ve ever played. It’s a nice Brian exercise along with some satisfying moments. Most negative reviews come from people who complain that it’s too hard. Everything can be completed, maybe not as easy as you thought but still. Fist thing to do once you finish the tutorial is look up strategies online. This will give you the best idea of how the game works and what you need to do to be successful. After that, all you need is a little bit of confidence and skill and you’ll dominate. And if you are one of those people who just want to destroy the world with no real difficulty and challenge, you can buy cheats for 8 dollars. This will allow you to basically do whatever you want with no consequences.
This makes me sad
by someone 1020 on 2020/08/01 20:24
It gives me less hope that we’re gonna make it through The coronavirus you can’t do anything to stop this it’s just it makes me sad
Woke stuff is kind of annoying.
by Pillow Pantz on 2020/08/01 12:13
It’s fun. Not hard to beat the whole game once you figure out how to hold off on the lethality until most of the world is infected. Would be more enjoyable if it weren’t for the injected Orange Man Bad political stuff.
One of my favorites!!
by JustCallMeRandom on 2020/07/30 16:14
This game is SUPER addicting and a very good strategy game. I do get stressed out a but, but overall, I would recommend this game to all of my friends! A+
It’s cool
by Black_mage1692 on 2020/07/29 06:58
It’s ok. Lots of micro-transactions though. Without the extra stuff winning can be quite hard
Be careful
by EliteNinjaFoxxy on 2020/07/28 19:32
So when I first got this game in about MarCh Of 2020 I didn’t Really like it sO I gave it a 1 star but the Next morning I woke up with A cough and feVer, then I got a que tIp stuck up my nose, a ways, the games gotten betteR so I give it a 4/5. But yeah, decent game, jUst aS I said in the title, be careful
Thought this was plague inc., not fake news inc.
by Disappionted Karen on 2020/07/26 16:12
This is a disappointment. You don’t infect the world, you spread fake news. Not what I was expecting nor wanted. I had a laugh at first because they always call pandemics fake news. But this is literally fake news. It’s not plague inc..
Maybe...
by Big poppa23 on 2020/07/26 01:00
You know could we....get a realistic mode? It should be easier than Easy mode while we’re at it. The description should say “Anti-maskers group together and riot. Those threatened kill innocent people. Infection rate increased by 90%”
This game warned us and we didn’t listen
by That chick you never talk to on 2020/07/23 22:25
For years the community has agreed on one thing: China is an ideal place to start a plague. If we had only paid attention, and headed the warning we were given so long ago...
It’s a good game but...
by Master Jedi Danger on 2020/07/21 20:59
Right now I only have the virus,And whenever I play a normal difficulty to try and get the next one, soon I have most of the world dead, but then there will be one or two countries that don’t get infected at all. When that happens, I don’t end up getting any DNA points at all! It’s just hard to play when I can’t progress. And, I don’t want to buy them all (I don’t want to sound like too much of a choosing beggar,That’s only because my dad won’t allow me to buy them. All in all, this game is amazing but I just would like it better if it was easier to actually progress instead of just doing Christmas scenario 50 times so that I can actually play the game (I like the scenarios that you guys provide!) scenarios are good, but I usually play them just because I can beat virus on normal mode.

Ok game
by ananmos on 2020/07/20 13:48
(Note my phone is a iPhone 5s) the game is way too hard but other than that ok oh and they give dna to slowly if this fixed will change to 5 stars
Ummmm....

Terrible!
by vsquez on 2020/07/19 19:34
Horrible! So horrible! It’s a complete waste of time! The fact checkers never slow down! I mean really? They keep doing it so fast! “UsE tHiS tO sLoW dOwN tHe FaCt ChEcKeRs” they don’t slow down I am never playing this game again! Bye-bye Plague inc. hello other better apps!
Totally Viral
by ?$?$?$?$?$?$?$?$?$?$?$?$?$?$?! on 2020/07/18 02:37
Pure strategy, and fun. Seeing the entire map become red is somehow entertaining. I would like to see a new version but instead of spreading a disease you could be humanity and end the plague. My friend showed me this, and he made a plague called “My Butt”. I instantly bought this game. Neurax worm is really fun, with the whole transcendency thing. However, I beat it on brutal and Necroa Virus didn’t unlock. I read gamepedia and it said that I had beat Neurax worm on brutal. Is this an error or am I just being dumb.
Great Game
by MyIDGoesHere on 2020/07/18 01:42
Been playing this for years, and love it. With all the game variations and achievements (ranging from easy to yikes!) I’ve never gotten bored with it. When I had a minor issue with gameplay, the developers were very fast to respond, and helpful. Two thumbs up!
Great game overall
by BaseballKiiiiid on 2020/07/17 19:09
I love the game, it’s super fun to play. However, I’ve noticed that there’s a bug in the smallpox scenario, or at least I think it’s a bug. No matter what you do or where you start, after the plague infects a few hundred or a few thousand people in your starting country, it immediately stops infecting people. Sometimes it will spread to other countries, but in those countries it also very quickly stops infecting people, making the scenario end very quickly because the plague kills everyone and doesn’t infect anyone more. In a recent smallpox scenario, I started in Egypt and it infected like 10,000 people, more than usual. Then it stopped infecting people and eventually no one was infected in Egypt, the 10,000 were all dead. It spread to a bunch of other countries in Africa and infected a few people in those countries, but then stopped infecting. It even spread by plane to the USA and like 20 people got infected, and it immediately went down to 0 because everyone got killed and no one else got infected. Besides this one issue I’ve confronted, the game is super fun to play.
Great game!!!
by TapticHaptic on 2020/07/16 20:43
This is by far the best game I have played. For those of who say “it’s to hard!!!!”. Well....man up. Seriously, stop complaining. Anyways this is really fun! I enjoyed destroying the whole world with a deadly plague!! Also, if you are expecting a super duper realistic plague simulator that will make everything you do make so much sense, well, you are out of luck. They don’t exist. I would suggest buying the plague pack for more fun then ever! Because I surely am! Keep up on it, Ndemic! You got this!!!
Nice

This is a very fun game. It just seems like plague and rebel inc are the only things this company has made.
Good game but...
by Lev0005 on 2020/07/15 19:40
Well it’s a good game but it’s not easy EVEN ON EASY MODE but other than that I like it’s A very good game, good graphics, easy to know hot to play it’s just a good game I think you should get it.
It costs money?
by Tasty Roo on 2020/07/15 00:27
Did the dev get greedy? This used to be a free game. I mean, it’s still fun, but...
Great game

I tried to do in the scenario where you’re putting out fake news but when I try to play it the map would not load in

by Brendan13398 on 2020/07/12 03:33
The game is fun and very strategy based, but the mode virus is too difficult for me, I can’t get my virus to spread throughout the entire world, without it being discovered by scientists because of the random symptoms mutations that cost dna points to get rid of, please make it easier to beat virus thank you
Great game

Great game but the packs
by gamer specter aedan on 2020/07/05 14:30
The planet of the apes and the vampire pack should be free so people can have more fun But the game is great 😀👍🏻
AWESOME GAME 🤩🤩
by GalacticCat3 on 2020/07/04 22:51
This game is an incredible time filler and super fun to play. While it is very difficult, I like that you can choose the difficult and it DOES matter how quickly you do things and evolve things, too. The only reason I’m not giving it five stars is bc when there was only one living country left,☝️, it said my disease (named imdeadyayme) hadn’t been noticed. Otherwise awesome game, really realistic, fun, and just the right amount of challenging. Definitely recommend! 👍
This Game Is Awesome
by ERTY! on 2020/07/04 18:40
When I first tried this game I had doubts, but now it’s one of my favorite games. I have lots of fun killing humanity
This is amazing
by OmG please fix this game on 2020/07/04 15:37
This is a great game. It works properly and is pretty real with human interaction and the spread of the disease. The levels are hard but it’s not impossible. I’m on bio weapon and on mega brutal. Tip: Don’t upgrade symptoms (unless it is cough or sneeze) until more than 40% of the world is infected. Also, upgrade the genetic hardening to slow the cure. You should play this game, because if you do, you will find yourself a crap tone of time and fun on this game.
Unless your rich it’s not fun
by wassup.... on 2020/07/03 03:56
Next time make a game not a donation website
No world map
by Joeymechkid on 2020/06/30 21:21
I’m on iPhone 7 and when I play theres no world just a blue screen, I cannot see what part of the world I am tapping. There is nothing there. Seems like a pretty good game, just bought it and i cant even play it. Please fix I hate to waste money.
Addictive

by GameReviewer6263 on 2020/06/22 23:24
I literally can not think of anything wrong with this game (besides the fact you have to pay to get the scenarios even if you completed the game like me) It’s so cool! I hope they add new features!
You did it
by Jesse1375 on 2020/06/22 04:38
Someone spread corona via this game(just a joke, great game)
What is this? Completely worthless.
by ClassicGamer999 on 2020/06/22 04:30
I don’t understand why this game is popular. Really boring, annoying, and a signal for the stupid crap that is happening in our country now. Biggest waste of .99 cents of my life. What am I missing please help me understand.
Great game....Sadly relevant

Couldn’t get the pack I paid for back
by SkalmabzkalhvsskshskOsosi on 2020/06/22 02:28
So I deleted this game for a while and I had the zombie pack and now I downloaded it again it says I have the pack but I have to pay for it again
This game stinks
by 間口 友厚 on 2020/06/21 14:51
In this game I have to infect people? No! There is already a COVID 19 game outbreak, every time they play they get worried what will happen next.
GREAT! But... (Its a Joke)
by Kirosepht on 2020/06/20 20:55
So, I went and decided to play the game, because I saw a YouTube play it, but... when I first played, I made a disease, I left my phone, then next thing I know, it went to real life. PLEASE FIX
Normal difficulty is way too hard
by darkninja1515 on 2020/06/19 19:25
The easy difficulty I’ve beaten thousands of times I used to have this game before I beat the normal difficulty like 5 times and so a year later I buy it on here and easy difficulty is still easy but normal difficulty feels like mega brutal so can u guys please lower the difficulty
Glitch
by ttttfbvf on 2020/06/19 14:25
In app purchases you can only request them ounce otherwise it’s a really good game. 3star review so it will stand out.
I mean, yeah it’s good.
by uhh im a kid on 2020/06/18 01:37
So, I downloaded plague inc like a few months ago and I love it! there are different types of scenarios if you get bored off of the 7 types of viruses and stuff.. it’s really creative! It’s also addictive and fun! (best of all: theres no ads) but um, this game has some minor issues, and issues that can be triggering. Some of the minor issues are like it kind of acts like some of the scenarios are an actual virus..such as fake-gate. Anyways, let’s move on to the issues that piss me off. So right now I didn’t really spend additional money on the game since I already bought it, and I’m on the 6th virus type, nano virus. Right off the bat you can see cure progress going up, BUT IT SAYS MY VIRUS HASNT BEEN NOTICED YET! it really pisses me off, it would make more sense if I bought some extreme stuff with DNA points but I BOUGHT TRANSMISSION AND ABILITIES!! also another minor issue, it says that some countries are already investing in cure? like I saw japan was spending 10.4k on the cure like at the start of the game and my virus hasn’t even been noticed. It’s really frustrating and is mostly the reason I can’t move on to Bio Weapon. Anyways, thanks for reading my review! PS, point it game is great but has some triggering issues that I highly recommend should be fixed, thanks!
A game to go along with the times now

by WJO2012 on 2020/06/16 23:01
I have fell in love with this game since the first time I played it. Just one thing. Please add a scenario witch you can make your own strain of Ebola.
Great game, but...
by AndrewRiela on 2020/06/16 19:27
I love this game, it’s really good. There are two things I would like to recommend. The first, is to make custom scenarios free. I know it’s a lot cheaper than on steam, but some people had a hard enough time getting the app, children like me. And the second is to make like an easy normal kind of difficulty that works to get things. It’s really hard to play.
it’s great
by ya boi crash on 2020/06/16 01:14
it’s like tony the tiger says
Amazing game!
by WalEEd7600 on 2020/06/14 01:22
A few months ago I won on all of the diseases and the special diseases. Now I’m doing the scenarios and I highly recommend other people to play this game!
My favorite
by Te03civiclx on 2020/06/13 16:24
This is by far one of #1 game. I love how challenging it gets and it make me try harder each time to beat the next difficulty.
Buy This
by DCGoth on 2020/06/13 05:28
I purchased this years ago for my original iPad (Series 3, iirc) and have started playing again. Buy this. It is well worth the price, and somewhat relevant in our current time of a real pandemic. Very well written and a plethora of additional upgrades, all worth the price, and no insane paywall. All of the items are affordable and worth it overall. My one gripe is that challenging friends is linked to FaceBook. I have the app platform turned off on FB and will never link anything to FB. I do not like how they invade my privacy and sell my information, so I have no info on FB and all of my demographics on FB are fictitious.
Wouldn’t work
by Galaxygirl👽12 on 2020/06/12 19:15
I got so excited that for this game and it wouldn’t even let me in it just kicked me out!
Luck and Grindy
by Jer m s on 2020/06/12 02:27
This game is amazing except the fact that it is EXTREMELY luck based and grindy.
This Game is Good.
by ii_iloveButter - Roblox on 2020/06/12 02:05
Well, First I download it and started to play it. About 3 Hours I was having fun playing this game. I spend 9 Hours Playing this game, Well This is a great plague Game.
Fantastic zero pay to win!!!!
by braedenmonster on 2020/06/11 22:38
This game is extremely in depth and detailed and inverse with no pay to win it is the best if not one of the best mobile games out there
I can’t get my plague pack even though I bought it
by sandwichnuts42069 on 2020/06/11 17:30
I got it on my other iPhone and I payed for the plague pack but somehow I can’t get I on my new iPhone
Best game ever.
by Riley Lenerd on 2020/06/11 15:21
I love this game but maybe you should take the price down to free for the senecio creators.
Idea
by Cybercreeper on 2020/06/11 15:04
Really good game, but maybe Make a coronavirus mutation. it seems appropriate for the times
THIS GAME IS INCREDIBLE
by StelarFarLoki on 2020/06/10 22:30
When I got this game, I had really low expectations but I played it for about 20 minutes and this game is so much fun! Great job on the game and keep up the good work!
A Great Game
by Tactical_Victory on 2020/06/10 16:11
Even though there are micro transaction, some of them can be gotten via playing the game. Many different scenarios to play, along with 4 difficulties. Along with scenarios made by people that play the game. It also can be played without WiFi, which in my opinion is a big plus. I would honestly recommend the game to people.
Only one thing
by kariya h on 2020/06/10 05:40
The way the US acts in a pandemic is unrealistic. They hardly lock down and ignore all social distancing orders, and instead stand in large groups protesting about haircuts.
Fix This
by AidenGR on 2020/06/09 23:04
When I try to go to the game it just exits me out Fix It
Good, but a bit repetitive
by Shibby_Dude :D on 2020/06/09 20:02
Started off promising but kind of got annoying by the ending. I finished everything, even on brutal mode, but that’s just because there’s an easy way to exploit everything. Start in China, buy certain power ups, then once the whole world is infected, devolve everything and put all points in total organ failure. Boom, win every time. It was also kinda awkward that every sickness had the same pattern and upgrades. Last I checked, there’s not a prion disease that makes you vomit. Those gripes aside, I’ve enjoyed it. But I would like a lot more variety between sicknesses
Not happy.
by Not your friend anymore on 2020/06/09 18:54
I’ve had plague inc for awhile now and I use to really enjoy it. I spend quiet some dollars on the game and I no longer want to play it. I have tried to restore my purchases many times and it says it is successful but my money is never in my account. Please give me my money back.
Good game also hard and I like hard
by impossigame on 2020/06/08 22:10
Hi I really like the game only one problem: I can't resist killing my pleage when it gets to the u.s. because I don't want my pleage to kill my mom

A little morbid, but fun to play none the less.
Endless fun

Amazing game.. it was so strategized and I love how you can make the disease infect in certain ways... will love to see another update
Broken game
by BigPapaYumYums on 2020/06/03 23:54
One island nation decided to execute infected people. I was playing as a fungal indirection, so I had the overpowered ability to actually spawn infection in their country. I did this twice, but they were instantly executed. Everyone in the world died except Iceland. Game made it impossible to win.
Fun

Much fun
Fabulous, and a Huge Bang For Your Buck
by squishshroom on 2020/03/16 19:14
This game is genuinely so well done. I grew up playing the flash game Pandemic 2, and once I heard my boyfriend talking about this game a little while ago, I was stoked. It really does make you think and formulate strategies specific to each disease and difficulty, which I absolutely love. If one thing worked every single time, it wouldn’t be much fun, would it? What’s supposed to be easy is easy, and what’s meant to be a challenge does not disappoint. Also love the addition of the special diseases (neurax worm, zombie plague, planet of the apes, vampires), and how you can unlock them without spending any extra money (so long as you have a little dedication and patience). I managed to unlock all four within a matter of days, and they’re stupid fun. Most negative reviews, I’ve noticed, are coming from people who complain about it being “too difficult,” but I promise you, everything can be done. Easily? No. But nothing in this game is impossible to achieve. (Don’t forget about online guides if you really are finding yourself in a pickle!) Bottom line is that this game is fantastic, and for only a dollar for the mobile version, I’m not quite sure what more you could ask for.
Great game overall
by BaseballKiiiiid on 2020/07/17 19:09
I love the game, it’s super fun to play. However, I’ve noticed that there’s a bug in the smallpox scenario, or at least I think it’s a bug. No matter what you do or where you start, after the plague infects a few hundred or a few thousand people in your starting country, it immediately stops infecting people. Sometimes it will spread to other countries, but in those countries it also very quickly stops infecting people, making the scenario end very quickly because the plague kills everyone and doesn’t infect anyone more. In a recent smallpox scenario, I started in Egypt and it infected like 10,000 people, more than usual. Then it stopped infecting people and eventually no one was infected in Egypt, the 10,000 were all dead. It spread to a bunch of other countries in Africa and infected a few people in those countries, but then stopped infecting. It even spread by plane to the USA and like 20 people got infected, and it immediately went down to 0 because everyone got killed and no one else got infected. Besides this one issue I’ve confronted, the game is super fun to play.
Awesome Game!!!
by Joeyminecraftgamer on 2018/11/23 20:28
This is a great game! It’s all about strategy. Here’s a strategy for Normal mode on the bacteria plague type. Start in China. First, save your DNA points until you have 20 or more. Then, buy drug resistance 1, bacterial resilience 1, and if you have enough left, buy water transmission 1. Next, save 50 DNA Points up. Then, complete the bacterial resilience tree, buy bacterial resilience 2 and 3. Next, save your points up to 60. Then, buy Water 2, air 1, air 2, and whatever water and air come together to make, i can’t remember what it’s called. If any symptoms mutate, devolve them immediately. This is good because your plague will infect the world faster because nobody will notice it and nobody will shut down ships, airplanes, or land borders, making it easier to spread country to country, continent to continent. Doctors will most likely only notice once a good portion of the world’s population is already dead. I tried this myself. Trust me, it works.
I’m disappointed
by TOO HARD!!!!!! on 2019/11/29 06:54
This game is very fun when it works right. I started off on the easy difficulty and managed to win after one or two tries and then moved on to normal mode in which I have spent the past 3 and a half hours trying to beat and have not been successful. The jump in difficulty from easy to normal can only be described as braindead. There was one round where I managed to get the entire world infected without my disease being noticed (I did this by devolving every symptom when it came). As soon as I started adding symptoms, within 5 minutes the country was halfway to a cure and I couldn’t produce enough dna to make symptoms that would kill off the population, because once you have a bunch of people infected the game decides that you don’t need to earn dna points anymore for whatever reason. I went online looking up ways to beat it just for my own satisfaction of having the level beat but not one of them worked either. I remember playing this game when it came out and having a lot of fun but now there’s just a bad taste in my mouth and I can’t stand the thought of turning it on again because I know it will only frustrate me to no end as I hopelessly try to beat the normal difficulty knowing that I will not succeed.
Good Game
by Nickfang33 on 2018/05/17 03:25
The game is very addictive and absolutely a ton of fun. I’ve spent days playing it and going through all the different difficulties the game has to offer and even bought a couple of the dlc desease types. My only smaller complaint (why I have 4 stars) is one I can understand but still bumps me out. The pc version has a couple more things than this version. And I can totally understand that it takes a while for the updated to be brought into mobile, I would still love to see the multiplayer option in the game. I can’t stress enough how many times I’ve wanted to play the game with a friend since they’re also a fan of this game. In all this is a very great game, worth the money but keeping in mind it isn’t a game everybody will find exciting. But it is really fun and I recommend checking the game out. I would love to know if a multiplayer option is ever to be released for the game, it really bumps me out not to see one and it would really add replay value if one was added. Once that is added I’ll give my five stars instantly!
I’ve had fun destroying mankind
by ulba12 on 2020/03/25 03:34
It has been fun, and I like that you do have to ‘win’ at different levels in order to open more advanced buggies. I am a bit miffed that I bought the lab pack and can’t seem to use the bug I created myself. I would also like to see the ability to adjust human behavior to counter “rich” countries having the advantages of medicine and facilities. Please, there are societies out there that are some of the poorest in the world, but the healthiest on this globe. Plus, as we have seen over the last few months, just because you have money doesn’t mean your stupidity stops (idiots on the beach in Florida in March as thousands die from the pandemic, or people insisting getting their hair and nails done is far more important than staying home. A bioterrorist attack would not ALWAYS be an “escaped” or “stolen”, perhaps it was a mad scientist that is slowly releasing it wanting to infect as many as possible unknowingly for as long as possible, what, too easy to kill off the dumb humans?
Needs more Realism!
by StellaIsMehName on 2018/02/25 18:11
This game is fun and a great way to pass the time while your bored or there’s nothing better to do. I enjoy the use of strategy and thinking you have to put into this game, but I would enjoy A LOT more if it was more realistic. First of all, countries of limited amount money and are somehow able to up the cure in a matter of days? I find that ridiculous. Another thing that annoys me is somehow a little cough or sneeze leads to research. In real life people would assume it’s just allergies and not go straight to the lab and find a cure. Even when it’s severe and is able to withstand almost anything possible that doesn’t slow the cure at all. I mean maybe by a day but their able to bounce back pretty quickly. I don’t enjoy how quick it is for them to cure the entire world so fast. Another flaw is that in real life we only have limited amount of resources. In the game somehow they have all the resources to ever exist. This game is fun but I would enjoy it more if it had a more realistic touch to it than it does in reality.
Liked the game - the payment disappointed me
by 11nasa22 on 2020/05/31 05:04
I liked the game but the payment disappointed me. For example when I click play scenario “everyone created equal” i read the description and thought “this is gonna be awesome”, they asked me if i wanted to play on bacteria or virus or spores etc... I chose and entered the game. There is nothing. I thought id see pop up signs like “in this world everyone is created equal and support is being sent to 3rd world nations in case of a pandemic” or pop up signs would appear where people protect a poor country. But its worse than original games. I then tried “pirate plague” where less boats and planes are travelling because of pirate piracy. I expected “pirates are looting this area and as a result traveled is reduced” and other pop up signs that really make the game feel unique. But it feels like it was abandoned and I didnt expect that for a game that was so great for 1$. Im criticizing the scenario pack, i dont think ill buy scenario creator after this PS. The random “covid 19 “message that appears during game causes stress .
Latest update
by GraveSkull on 2017/09/23 01:37
I want to start off by saying I love this game. I always have. And I've never really had issues with anything. I'm not saying they messed things up badly or anything, they probably did this on accident. Since the last update the other day, it won't show if a stat will decrease when you evolve or devolve. It still shows how much it increases, but it won't show if something will decrease a stat. While it's not a huge problem, it can kinda mess you up sometimes. Another tiny bug is that sometimes, the map bugs out and keeps trying to zoom in or out automatically and you can't select a country. The 2nd bug is fixed by reopening the game. Again, I'm pretty sure they accidentally turned off something when they were updating and forgot they did. Other than that, it's perfect. I hope you see this so you know about it for later!👍
Welcome by reading this text you have been infected with a new pathogen
by Cowboy0704 on 2017/10/08 14:36
Amazing! However they say it’s a realistic example but its not. There is unlimited funding and somehow they know it’s a new disease just because nausea is a symptom even on casual it seems that a checkup involves blood work or something also the scientists find a cure way too fast hiv hasn’t been cured yet but it’s been around for 40 something years they can cure any . disease in like 2-4 years it also doesn’t consider malaria and other deaths it’s like everybody stops dying and giving birth when your disease has started. Then people start dying again once your disease becomes lethal. The world has unlimited money and one time only 200 people were still alive and somehow that number could cure my disease. Definitely worth the 99 cents it cost but I hate the In app purchases it still gives me an add for unlocking all the plague types when I already unlocked all them by playing the game
Great game!
by hi i don't want to use my name on 2019/02/16 16:25
I want to start by saying that this is a great game. It’s really fun, and it’s definitely worth getting. There are two points that I’m seeing about the game that I want to defend: 1) It’s too expensive. I’m seeing a lot of people saying that it’s too hard to get all of the modes, but that’s the challenge. That’s a bit of motivation for playing the game. The only thing that you really have to buy in the app it the scenarios, which is a huge expansion. All together, that’s only about 4 dollars, and I’ve been playing this game a lot and enjoying it a lot. Definitely worth it. 2) It’s unrealistic. What do you expect? It’s a game. If you, the disease, can mutate lots of abilities and transmissions and other stuff, and basically had endless resource, it’s only fair that the cure has lots of unrealistic funding. Otherwise, the game would be too easy. This is really long. Basically: I love the game.
It’s good but...
by The Iron Jet!!😎😎😎 on 2020/04/23 00:43
The game is good. It’s addicting, but one thing is wrong. I play normal mode to unlock the new virus, keep in mind I’m on the first virus 🦠. Normal mode is not normal. It is extremely hard mode. It is impossible to get people to die, but infecting the whole world? Oh it’s a piece of cake! When iCure becomes successful the cure process becomes way faster. I HAD THREE STRAINS AND BOTH DRUG RESISTANT AND THE OTHER ONE TOO (I forgot what it was called) EVEN WHEN THE CURE HITS 50% IT STARTS TO SPEED UP THE PROCESS OF THE CURE! all I’m asking is, making normal actually normal, get rid of iCure, and slow down the process of the cure and let people actually get to the second virus. And also make upgrades less expensive. That’s a flaw too. I be trying to upgrade near the death of man kind as we know it, and when the whole freaking world is infected, I don’t get DNA 🧬, which means I can’t upgrade, which means the cure is made, which means I lose, and when I come so close and lose, so many freakin times, I get mad. I want to move on bro, is that too much to ask?
Just one issue for me
by despicable human on 2020/04/05 21:32
I love the game and I recently became hooked again and I’m beginning to notice a common occurrence, My disease is killed off due to random mutations. I don’t mind the mutations it’s that I wish they didn’t cost so much to devolve. I know you have a gene that makes devolve costs not as much but could they in some modes/difficulties have no cost and no reward for the random mutations. Keep the cost for devolving symptoms/transmissions/abilities to cost DNA points. I find myself to have just bought an upgrade early game and bam, a symptom mutates and cost 7+ dna points to devolve and my disease gets spotted. Other than that I love all the games you make (Plague Inc. and Rebel Inc.) and think that people should at least look into your games. If this does not change I will not be very bothered because I still love the game it’s just a recommendation from me.
Consistency would be nice
by Yazo675 on 2020/01/27 06:03
The games fun and it’s a dollar, as one of the top reviews states. The tutorial tells you how to accrue biopoints or whatever they’re called by infecting and deaths the only problem is the game isn’t consistent. I kept devolving my virus so that it wasn’t detected and infected pretty close to the entire population so according to the tutorial I still should have been accruing those biopoints right? Well the points stopped coming but I was banking the points I was getting, up to the point it stopped and made it lethal the tutorial also says deaths accrue bio points too well again not accurate. Spent all my points the death toll SKYROCKETED no points so I have a pretty susceptible bacteria. I was counting on the points I SHOULD have gotten from the death toll but I didn’t get any except from the yellow bubbles which was not even close to enough to evolve ANYTHING and the cure was made in like a month in game time and the game was over. I would suggest making your game according to your tutorial. And it would be great! Until then it’s okay.
Good but could be better
by Dustin412 on 2017/10/24 10:10
I like the game. It takes strategy, passes time well, fairly in depth. I like the premise, but it’s kind of unrealistic. You can try to progress your disease to be aggressive, but people die off too quickly. Sometimes it’s easy to infect other countries but somehow some of the smaller can go un-affected. Once the disease progresses and more countries get infected, anytime you upgrade the transmission, countries and regions automatically counter it somehow, even the more poor areas of the world. Also it seems like the abilities to increase effectiveness of your disease in wealthy countries and to slow down cure research and make it harder to cure do nothing. I had the drug resistance 1-2, genetic hardening 1-2 and genetic reshuffle1-3, but somehow there was a cure for my disease in 2 1/2-3 years, without even severe symptoms. That’s just on normal difficulty, i cant imagine brutal or mega brutal difficulty. I love the game but maybe tweak it just a little to make it a bit more realistic.
An all time favorite
by Kingsspan on 2018/07/01 05:37
I’ve had this game downloaded on multiple accounts over multiple devices since it first was released. This game is an all time favorite of mine. I can go months without playing it, and then jump right back into it and get drawn into the gameplay and challenge of it all over again. It has great replayability, and I’ve heard the board game is equally as fun. My only complaint is the amount of in-app purchases. While many things can be unlocked during gameplay, they tend to be ridiculously hard. The prices for certain extras should be lowered or grouped together. As someone else pointed out, with the money you’d spend getting the game and all expansions, you could’ve bought a higher quality PC/console game with more in it. TLDR; all time favorite game, wish the in-app purchases weren’t how they are.
Good Game, But Could Use Updates
by Plague Inc. Reviews on 2017/07/17 19:16
If your a beginner at this game and you have no clue on how to beat brutal or mega brutal it becomes pay- to win. I am quite new to this and only re-installed it 2 weeks ago. This game doesn't need Wifi or internet so if you're looking for a good game without internet, this might be for you. If you have beat Mega Brutal then you are a genius at strategy. By the way if you want to beat the game easily with a basic plague type than use the virus plague. I currently have every plague type in the game and if you want a cool plague type and you like zombies get the Necora Virus. This game is the best I have played. If you like Planet of the apes then get the Simian Flu and if you like brain worms then get the Nurax Worm. If you like Creepy vampires then get the Shadow plague. This game needs more plagues so please add some! All and all this game is epic!
Great Strategic game
by msjuris on 2019/07/18 12:10
I’ve been playing this game for nearly 10 years. While other games have been down loaded and then deleted from my phone -Plague, Inc Is the only game that I’ve never stopped playing or deleted due to boredom. It is challenging and thought provoking. It’s a game I don’t mind losing, especially if I accomplish my own goals. I will play the game to see if I can take out one area of the map without doing much damage to another. I can’t praise this game enough. It’s the only game that I have never been required to pay any money to continue playing. It has been free for as long as I’ve been playing. Don’t know if any other game that can make that same claim. You can control the speed of game play, pause games and save them for later. It’s an all around excellent game. Love it.
A lot of fun, but some major errors that should be fixed
by prof1011 on 2018/04/15 04:01
This is a great simulation. But as something that aspires to be realistic, there are a few irksome details that should be fixed. First off, no country in the modern world can stop animals and insects from passing across its borders. Completely impossible. Ask any biologist. Islands like New Zealand, Madagascar and Iceland are well within the range of birds. The idea that these countries would be completely immune to disease right next to them is completely unrealistic, as is the idea that any country could just ‘eliminate birds!’ Really?! Every since one of the millions? Good luck with that- modern armies can’t even eliminate 100% of humans in a given region, certainly not all animals without killing themselves in the process. Secondly, cures don’t roll out to hundreds of millions of people Ina a matter of days- it’s more like months and years! If a team of doctors in Canada find a cure, no, the entire continent of Africa is not going to get that cure in a week. They’d be lucky to administer it in a year! And when 99% of Canada’s population is dead, where are they finding the resources to cure even a handful of people? Then minor things- like I understand not all ports are shown, but no commence btwn LA and the Pacific Rim? Hello, it’s probably the largest single commercial route in the world!
Sick fun! Love it!
by Izzy's Aunt Meme on 2018/12/10 22:23
I’m a bug that destroys the world! Really clever and lots of fun. From casual to mega-brutal difficulties, you can choose how you want to play. I’ve been enjoying this game for free for over a year! If you have patience & some skill, you can earn the DNA and don’t have to pay anything for that part. I decided it was totally worth it to purchase the additional scenarios and unlock some extra DNA sequences. A few things I’d like to see in an update: 1. More spaces to name my bug, as I like to add the date & difficulty I played at (alternately, just add this info to the ‘high score’ section). 2. I don’t really care about recording the score on games I didn’t win. 3. During game play, I’d like to be able to reference which pre-game selections I chose (perhaps on the disease tab). Many thanks to the developer. Love it!
Really good game but one suggestion
by Rabbid dogg1000 on 2017/08/06 17:06
I love this game and I believe it is incredibly well made, although there has not been a major update made in an incredibly long time and having beaten most of the diseases on mega-brutal I also have not played it in the same length of time. If I might make a suggestion I think that a multiplayer feature would give me and others a reason to start playing again. An example of how this could work is maybe one player controls the disease and the other controls the countries attempting to cure it. Or maybe it can just work similarly to the board game where each player controls a different disease and compete against each other to be the first to infect the world. Still rating five stars however just because I love this game
Shall we play a game?
by Crashingthroughthesnow on 2020/03/11 04:02
Well lemme tell you guys a story. My sister bought me this game + all the in-app purchases last February but I never got around to playing it until about this past December. So there I was, sitting there, drinking a beer, and I decided to give it a go. I launch the app and a lovely little screen pops up and says “Shall we play a game?” Of course I’m like “well I’d love to” and then it’s like asking me all the questions about naming my disease and being the smartass I am decided to name it after my beer. Well I fell asleep that night and never finished the game but today I launch it and whatdaya know, I’m conquering the world but my death rate’s only 3%. In any case, 10/10 for immersion! I’m hoping to get around to finish it soon, I think I have to kill the world to win... wish me luck!
Necroa flaw
by Krista&Cory on 2020/03/11 08:11
When playing Necroa (which is a paid upgrade) I cannot move zombie hordes while also popping zombie bubbles! The bug/glitch is that when you click on the “horde” option it opens the “info” screen instead of allowing you to place the horde in a country. SUPER ANNOYING!! I’ve spent the entire day trying to figure out winning combos & strategies only to get most of the way there (even following directions I found online for BRUTAL mode on normal mode) and CANNOT win because of the glitch!! I’m super frustrated like why is that even on the same menu bar as the directive?! Will be deleting the app soon if this stupid “info” option isn’t removed from the move horde menu bar! Other than that... the game is super duper fun and I’ve quite enjoyed destroying humanity through various bio hazards 😉 Love that it takes strategic thinking but I wish the Necroa wasn’t so hard to beat... makes it not very fun!
How to contact the developers???
by Honest Customer_ on 2018/12/28 19:09
I absolutely love this game. I’ve had it for a while now and it’s my favorite game to play on car rides and other long trips. In fact, I loved it so much that I bought the option to unlock all scenarios a little while back. However, I had to delete the game for a couple months when I was low on space, and when I downloaded it again I had lost access to those scenarios. I’m confused why this happened, I would think that since I still owned the game (it just wasn’t on my phone) any purchases I made should be upheld. I don’t want to pay for it again, but I loved the scenarios and would like to continue playing them. I can’t seem to find a way to contact anyone to solve this issue so if anyone has a way to help me either contact someone or solve the problem please let me know!
This game is AWESOME!!!
by Freddy Foxy Bonnie Chika on 2018/06/05 18:39
This game definitely needs at least a 3 star rating because, even though it isn’t realistic, it’s updates lately have really made it fun (except for the fact that in one of the scenarios fun is banned but you get to bring it back anyway, so who cares?) You can play it any time and win if you know what countries to infect first so that it infects the whole world and if you have the right strategies. I mean, once I played it once I told my family about it and they love it (it is very hard to find some thing that they like) so much they wouldn’t stop playing it until they got and won all the scenarios and beat every disease type on mega brutal They LOVED it so I bet you and your family will too (if they like making humanity extinct)
Good but..
by Eli ELM on 2020/04/18 15:32
I really love this game and I made it all the way up to prion but then I was stuck I even tried looking up ways to beat I was getting quite bored with the game and really wanted to play to play the special diseases and wanted to try out all the scenarios and the custom ones so I got the plague pack but I was little upset I thought it was going to include the scenario creator and also I wish you would be able to download as many custom scenarios as you would like but I understand how expensive it can be so I’m fine with that but I spend the exact money on a new vr game which is a lot more fun and just an awesome experience kind of weird example but works it’s kind of a big investment to get everything you need but overall it’s quite a fun game I’m happy with buying the $1 game not quite with the $13 plague pack
One of the best games on iOS
by LollyLocutus on 2018/09/06 05:10
Who hasn't dreamed of taking over the world? Well. This isn't exactly that but destroying it is the next best thing. It's hard at first and then it gets even more difficult over time, and I bet you'll love every moment of it. The one thing I wish it had was a single button I could press to simply buy everything. But don't worry, everything in the game can be unlocked as you play. I just didn't want to beat everything else to play as a nano-virus. The display UI is as simple to master as the concept of the game itself. The graphics allow for understanding of the spread while the "news real" hands out just enough detail to keep you entertained without having to show just how horrific it is. The only issue with the graphics for me is that the world doesn't turn black as the disease kills the world. It just kind of darkens a bit. I want it black! First, burn it red with infection and then burn it black with death! But meh. That little nitpick isn't enough to keep me away. So give this a go for those days when you just want the world to end in new and imaginative ways each more horrifying than the last.
Great game but irritating
by BobZombie88062015 on 2019/07/23 13:35
This game is awesome, but I only rated it four starts because of the difficulty. There’s a fine line between challenging and downright frustrating, and most of us don’t play games to be annoyed. You can buy cheats, however, which leads me to believe that the difficulty may have been designed that way. For example, once the world begins developing a cure, you have a limited amount of time to wipe everyone out: because they WILL finish it and it WILL work, and it WILL cure EVERYONE every single time. You use DNA points to evolve your organism to spread and infect the world (multiple times I’ve infected the entire global population) only for my disease to be spotted, and the cure begins... but there’s no one left to infect, hence no more DNA, hence you can’t make your disease lethal and they cure it and you fail. Like I said, it’s a very fun game, but in all honesty had I known it would be as annoying as it can be I wouldn’t have paid for it.
Absolutely Amazing
by ETHANDMA on 2020/03/15 16:48
I agree with fish time again’s statement, this game isn’t easy, it is something that it’s very fun when you find different strategies to succeed, it’s just one dollar and if you wanna unlock just certain packages and game passes, then you can do that, you pay less than Plague Inc. pc users, because you can get the game with available packs and other things to buy IF YOU WANT, I want to point that out because if you don’t wanna buy anything it’s fine, you could just play your way through to unlock most things I believe, while in PC, you buy the game for 15 dollars and you have everything unlocked. It may be unnecessary for some people to do this, so that’s why I rate this game in the App Store version a 5/5
Mega Brutal problems and Realism.
by julschris7 on 2019/01/02 20:01
The DNA when you start is ok, but when you advance to the stage where you infected your whole starting country and other countries then the DNA slows down to 1-2 DNA per 300,000 to 500,000 and for that amount your should at least earn 10+ DNA. Also I killed about 60 million people and only got 2 DNA. Absolutely ridiculous. Also in Mega Brutal your disease when it is discovered and lasts for 50 or 100 days, so many countries invest in research for a disease that literally has no symptoms and is harmless but treated like the Black Plague, Smallpox, HIV, Chicken Pox, harmful tumors, or cancer. It is pretty unrealistic considering there are other disease out there needing that attention. I don’t mind the fact that no humans die or old age or are birthed, but I would love to see that in the game. If you improve this I would give 5 stars no doubt. Great game, but has lots of issues.
BEST VIRUS SIMULATOR OUT!
by CButera24 on 2019/07/21 23:11
I started playing this game what has to be almost 5 years ago now and it’s one of my favorites. I keep the app on the main screen of my phone right up front. Payed for the full unlock with all the trimmings. Played every scenario and virus type. Huge fan and the game has never, IMO, had any issues I’ve encountered or bugs that have made the game function in any other way than its intention. I love that you can unlock everything or just buy it. But the company isn’t cash grabbing us by losing the game with micro transaction just to keep the fun going. You pay once and THATS IT! Just fun from there on out. Awesome game everyone! I completely recommend this game to anyone reading this review. Go ahead, enjoy yourself!
Way too difficult.
by LinxCEO on 2017/10/14 09:55
I’ve been playing games exactly like this for like 10 years and I’ve never seen one as difficult as this... Jesus, even the “easy” mode is impossible. And I use a proven effective method. Maximize infected, then hit with the deadly symptoms. However I had like 3 test games doing different methods, all on “casual” mode, and I lost all three. Game 1- Infected the entire world, waited, racked up DNA points, then I went in for the kill... cure was developed in about 30 seconds and I lost immediately because I totally stopped getting DNA points after I started killing off the population. Game 2- Same as game one, but before I started buying deadly symptoms I sold the transmission upgrades so I had some points to spend. Cure developed at a steady pace, stopped getting DNA points, lost the game. Game 3- I maximized the infected, then I started buying drug resistance. Then I just didn’t even have enough DNA points to kill anybody. Ended up buying not even lethal upgrades, then I lost because the cure was being developed and I got like 2 DNA points every 10 seconds. I couldn’t buy anything. At least make the easy mode easy. Give us a more steady income of DNA points instead of just totally cutting it off at 5% lethality. Deleting the game. I’m not gonna play if an experienced strategy gamer can’t even beat easy mode.
It’s a Great Game...
by werewolf36 on 2019/01/01 02:03
But there’s a problem. People have sung the praises of this game and I agree with everything others have said. The reason I’ve given this game 3 stars is because the Custom Scenario’s just stopped working. It’s not an issue with making them or playing the ones I’ve already downloaded - that still works fine. The problem is that I can’t download any new ones. Every time I try, it gives my the loading screen and then closes to show that nothing has downloaded. I’ve uninstalled and reinstalled the game and that hasn’t fixed it. If this is a bug, I’d suggest getting it fixed immediately. Once that happens, I’ll give the game the 5 stars it deserves.
Needs to start killing people faster
by VelvettFogg on 2018/02/15 22:27
I like the game but I have one problem: people won’t die quick enough. I had lots of deadly things and the game was on casual and I still barely killed anyone. The game should also give you more dna points or give them to you faster. The cure should also be developed slower because the moment I add some stuff, people where already working on a cure, and this was on the easiest mode possible. People who haven’t played the game are probably gonna call me a noob and people who have are probably gonna tell me it’s supposed to be as difficult as it is, but I think you shouldn’t barely be able to kill anyone. Just a thought developers. I highly doubt the developers will even read this and fix the problems I had so yeah.
Cool
by DatAsianBoiDoe on 2018/12/17 05:50
I’ll start by addressing the criticisms of this game. People say you have to buy everything. I’ve beaten everything on Brutal and it unlocks the special scenarios after I beat the first 7 on Brutal. People say you can’t even beat normal. Normal is surpisingly easy. IF YOU DON’T PUT TOTAL ORGAN FAILURE AS ONE OF YOU’RE SYMPTOMS TWO MONTHS IN. The reason you have to pay for the scenarios is that the devs work hard to make them. Now for my praise. This gane is really fun. I don’t know what else to say other than that. Killing the low 7.1 billion people (really should be updtaed to at least 7.5 billion but oh well) is surprisingly fun. I swear I’m not a psychopath. Thanks for the fun game, Ndemic! Keep it up! P.S. You guys should totally add a scenario creator for Rebel Inc., too.
It’s a good game but...
by Master Jedi Danger on 2020/07/21 20:59
Right now I only have the virus,And whenever I play a normal difficulty to try and get the next one, soon I have most of the world dead, but then there will be one or two countries that don’t get infected at all. When that happens, I don’t end up getting any DNA points at all! It’s just hard to play when I can’t progress. And, I don’t want to buy them all (I don’t want to sound like too much of a choosing beggar,That’s only because my dad won’t allow me to buy them. All in all, this game is amazing but I just would like it better if it was easier to actually progress instead of just doing Christmas scenario 50 times so that I can actually play the game (I like the scenarios that you guys provide!) scenarios are good, but I usually play them just because I can beat virus on normal mode.
A lot of fun you can beat everything without needing to buy any of the actual expansion pack items.
by Smiley & the Bandits on 2018/12/06 02:48
You however cannot buy the custom scenario kit without it trying to make you buy it twice apparently. This infuriated me deeply is all I wanted to do was to play my own scenario that I made. Very convoluted difficult and I wasn’t able to play even after already buying it. It sends you in a never ending circle sending you to the scenario kit then back the to the game it never ends. So stick to the game I guess until they fix that glitch. Other than that I’ve wasted hours playing this game I love vampire mode it was especially satisfying earn your way up to it.
Addicting with tons of content
by JellyApple102 on 2020/02/02 23:34
It can take a few tries but once you figure out how everything works in conjunctions with each other the game gets super fun and addicting. Each disease has 4 difficulty levels. Casual, normal, brutal, and mega brutal. Beating one on normal or higher will unlock the next main one. There are 4 special ones that can be unlocked for free, even though the game doesn’t tell you that. You have to beat all the main ones on brutal to unlock the first one, and then beating a special one on brutal will unlock the next special one. Each is a different challenge that is vastly different from the one before it. In addition to those, there are scenarios, or special plague games. There are a bunch unlocked for free. They can range from crafting and spreading a fake news story to simulating a hit board game sale. There are more scenarios to get for a a couple bucks, as well as user created custom scenarios, which give the game also it unlimited replay ability. All in all, awesome game, everyone should give it a shot!
Good game
by Tv Man the Dude Derp on 2020/08/02 04:39
Best mobile game I’ve ever played. It’s a nice Brian exercise along with some satisfying moments. Most negative reviews come from people who complain that it’s too hard. Everything can be completed, maybe not as easy as you thought but still. Fist thing to do once you finish the tutorial is look up strategies online. This will give you the best idea of how the game works and what you need to do to be successful. After that, all you need is a little bit of confidence and skill and you’ll dominate. And if you are one of those people who just want to destroy the world with no real difficulty and challenge, you can buy cheats for 8 dollars. This will allow you to basically do whatever you want with no consequences.
Fun game, some issues.
by SolarNightFlare on 2020/03/24 19:48
This games fun and all, but there needs to be a way where you can keep getting some mutation points. Towards the end of the infection, you get nothing and if you don’t have a quick enough lethality, you always end up losing to research even with the research resistance maxed out. You hardly get any during the last couple days/months of in game time. That, or de-evolving should give back more points than just 2. Why do we have to spend 10-27 points just to get back 2 in the late game, I understand because it makes the game harder. But, it’s almost unplayable late game unless you 100% have some way to cheat that, with some method a bunch of wiz kids put together on the internet.
Best game I’ve played all year
by audreythelittlepanda on 2020/03/07 19:18
I absolutely love this game! My whole family is hooked, although there are a couple cons. First off, this game is super fun, but once you kill/infect a bunch of people it becomes insanely hard to earn DNA points. Second, once people realize that there needs to be a cure, the cure ends up progressing insanely fast no matter how much drug resistance i have. Third, normal is pretty dang hard to beat! I’ve tried playing it several times, but I just can’t kill/infect everyone. Anyways, enough with the cons, let’s get to the pros! As I titled this review, it really is the best game I’ve played in 2020. I can’t stop playing, and neither can my family!! It’s amazing! Thanks for reading, and sorry for the long review!
Game is too easy but fun
by Tairoholic on 2020/02/03 07:38
Have to wonder about the people complaining about difficulty. Seriously. Once you figure out to keep symptoms removed entirely until youre ready to mass murder, the game is easy as pie on any difficulty.......I figured this out my 3rd game and it has been a cake walk since with any virus type or difficulty. This didnt require google or reddit, how to win stares you right in the face.....Too hard? LOL, no. Too basic. I gave it 5 because its still insanely fun. The game is too easy, I cannot believe anyone would downvote the game because they cant see 1 simple and logical decision. The same tactic can be used with any plague type, even virus.....
It good! But some :/ also some idea for you!
by Mom of Deaf son on 2020/03/10 05:15
So I think price kinda too price I mean ape and vampire I have to pay 9 dollars so I think should free or all in one app I don’t want all I just think better one app all. Also I wish more realistic because airplane really I mean there like 100,000 each month but one airplane 6 time in one month ehhhh it unrealistic also I wish more story not too fast you can put in story mode or fast mode (normal) for example story being in the China virus name is Cadi-20 what her name how start I think more fun story telling also symptoms it most annoying for me because I want that I want not change I want that but sometime game will auto organ failure I don’t want I want stay. Scenario is cool but I don’t understand why it have to price they make.
Great game, really annoying glitch
by Clark6050 on 2017/11/01 04:15
I’ll start out by saying that this is an amazing game. I’d recommend the pc version over this, but if you want to be able to play this on the go then this is a great purchase. If the glitch I’m about to talk about has been patched then ignore this and buy it. The glitch is that after the game is closed (even if it is cleared) if you tilt your screen the view will switch even though Portrait Orientation is set to locked. Sometimes you may have to restart your phone if it keeps doing it after trying to lock and unlock your PO. Other than that I am greatly enjoying this game and I would recommend it. I would give it 5/5 stars without the glitch.
Ignore the Hateful Comments
by Flipflan the Destroyer on 2017/11/03 20:47
Unlike some of the comments say, this game is not too hard to beat and is actually really easy once you have a strategy. I saw a comment that said, "You have to buy everything to get anywhere." But that statement was not true. I have beaten all the standard plagues on brutal without assistance from a guide (except for fungus, I just have a really hard time on fungus). I didn't buy anything except the game. Scenarios aren't free but the the game developer explains why. Cheats are earned and so are the plagues that completely change how you can play. If you have a good enough strategy this game is completely do able.
Addicting BUT too difficult!!
by This girls liking it! on 2019/06/21 02:55
I’ve been playing this game for a while, and I still have yet to beat a game! I’ve used strategies and everything. Nothing works. DNA needs to come in at a faster pace. Because right when you start killing people off, you also stop getting any DNA at all! And then on top of that, the cure moves too quickly, even if you’ve upgraded the plagues resistance 100%. I’ve even tried using proven strategies to beat the game and even that has yet to work. All his combined leaves the game to be really frustrating and just not fun after a while. This is definitely not a game for people with little patience. It’s definitely a fun and addicting game. But I wouldn’t recommend it if you actually want to win the game! I would suggest just using this app to pass the time. That’s all.
I love this game!!
by Coapantecalt on 2020/04/21 19:48
This game is amazing, I would recommend it to everyone. I really like how much realism it has. The amount of time it takes to develop a cure, to the amount of real problems that countries have that could impact the development of your virus. One of my favorite parts is that there are many scenarios to play for free. My fav scenario is the vampire one. It is so crazy and really thoughtful of what people would think of when they actually had to deal with vampires. Anyways, there are also some unrealistic parts to it too. Like how can the cure get from country to country so fast, I don’t understand. (Wow I’m impressed that you have read this far XD)
Very Fun!!!
by Niko Butler on 2018/01/13 15:38
This game is so good because you can get so many different infections. But I wish they had an update so you can zoom in on the map and start your infection on a more specific place. It is fun because I can just watch everything happen all at once! It is also good that you can edit your infection simply by evolving (in fact much more simple than that). Normally I lose and I still like it though because I just love trying out new infections. This version has very high quality and is actually very popular now around the world. I appreciate this app because of how much detail there is. Anyway, YOU MUST BUY THIS GAME!!!!
This game is the best
by bio-wepon 16 on 2019/06/06 00:53
It is a very fun game with a cool area of gameplay and I would definitely recommend this to all of my friends. I have had a challenging time to complete each plague but that is what makes it fun to play. It has given me so many ideas to make my own in the plague creator and I really wish for this game to get more updates to it. It also helps me to think up of strategies that others could use. I also feel as if it has shown me how careful you need to be about your health like in the game and how easy it can be to get sick due to poor health choices. I hope others will enjoy the game as much as I do.

I love this game
by xXthe-memeXx on 2020/08/06 03:19
Much fun, super realistic, so realistic I started the virus in China but then it started in real life and then sadly I lost that game but anyways much fun for an app
Super Realistic!
by RoadHouse XD on 2020/08/05 15:13
Never thought I’d see such a game such close to reality on the App Store but, HERE IT IS!
Awesome Game
by Crazy_clb on 2020/08/05 00:54
All around excellent game. I love that you can unlock all the features without paying money and the gameplay is simple but requires real strategy to complete. An excellent concept and a great game.
Fun
by Dr Tel Megiddo on 2020/08/04 21:09
It is beatable
Who needs this game when you can do it in real life.

Love it, there’s something satisfying watching all life on earth die while desperately attempting to stay afloat. 👍
Worth Buying
by NucleusGamingYT on 2020/08/04 06:17
Definitely worth it, amazing game that simulates a disease that you control and evolve.
很不错的一款游戏!

Glitch with requesting
by cow man2998 on 2020/08/03 01:30
Hi I love this game however there is a weird glitch with requesting for stuff I did it once and my family said no and I tried it again a couple years later and I can’t thank you.
It’s not bad

by Tv Man the Dude Derp on 2020/08/02 04:39
Best mobile game I’ve ever played. It’s a nice Brian exercise along with some satisfying moments. Most negative reviews come from people who complain that it’s too hard. Everything can be completed, maybe not as easy as you thought but still. Fist thing to do once you finish the tutorial is look up strategies online. This will give you the best idea of how the game works and what you need to do to be successful. After that, all you need is a little bit of confidence and skill and you’ll dominate. And if you are one of those people who just want to destroy the world with no real difficulty and challenge, you can buy cheats for 8 dollars. This will allow you to basically do whatever you want with no consequences.
This makes me sad
by someone 1020 on 2020/08/01 20:24
It gives me less hope that we’re gonna make it through The coronavirus you can’t do anything to stop this it’s just it makes me sad
Woke stuff is kind of annoying.
by Pillow Pantz on 2020/08/01 12:13
It’s fun. Not hard to beat the whole game once you figure out how to hold off on the lethality until most of the world is infected. Would be more enjoyable if it weren’t for the injected Orange Man Bad political stuff.
One of my favorites!!
by JustCallMeRandom on 2020/07/30 16:14
This game is SUPER addicting and a very good strategy game. I do get stressed out a but, but overall, I would recommend this game to all of my friends! A+
It’s cool
by Black_mage1692 on 2020/07/29 06:58
It’s ok. Lots of micro-transactions though. Without the extra stuff winning can be quite hard
Be careful
by EliteNinjaFoxxy on 2020/07/28 19:32
So when I first got this game in about MarCh Of 2020 I didn’t Really like it sO I gave it a 1 star but the Next morning I woke up with A cough and feVer, then I got a que tIp stuck up my nose, a ways, the games gotten betteR so I give it a 4/5. But yeah, decent game, jUst aS I said in the title, be careful
Thought this was plague inc., not fake news inc.
by Disappionted Karen on 2020/07/26 16:12
This is a disappointment. You don’t infect the world, you spread fake news. Not what I was expecting nor wanted. I had a laugh at first because they always call pandemics fake news. But this is literally fake news. It’s not plague inc..
Maybe...
by Big poppa23 on 2020/07/26 01:00
You know could we....get a realistic mode? It should be easier than Easy mode while we’re at it. The description should say “Anti-maskers group together and riot. Those threatened kill innocent people. Infection rate increased by 90%”
This game warned us and we didn’t listen
by That chick you never talk to on 2020/07/23 22:25
For years the community has agreed on one thing: China is an ideal place to start a plague. If we had only paid attention, and headed the warning we were given so long ago...
It’s a good game but...

Totally Viral
by ?$?$?$?$?$?$?$?$?$?$?$?$?$?$?! on 2020/07/18 02:37
Pure strategy, and fun. Seeing the entire map become red is somehow entertaining. I would like to see a new version but instead of spreading a disease you could be humanity and end the plague. My friend showed me this, and he made a plague called “My Butt”. I instantly bought this game. Neurax worm is really fun, with the whole transcendency thing. However, I beat it on brutal and Necroa Virus didn’t unlock. I read gamepedia and it said that I had beat Neurax worm on brutal. Is this an error or am I just being dumb.
Great Game
by MyIDGoesHere on 2020/07/18 01:42
Been playing this for years, and love it. With all the game variations and achievements (ranging from easy to yikes!) I’ve never gotten bored with it. When I had a minor issue with gameplay, the developers were very fast to respond, and helpful. Two thumbs up!
Great game overall
by BaseballKiiiiid on 2020/07/17 19:09
I love the game, it’s super fun to play. However, I’ve noticed that there’s a bug in the smallpox scenario, or at least I think it’s a bug. No matter what you do or where you start, after the plague infects a few hundred or a few thousand people in your starting country, it immediately stops infecting people. Sometimes it will spread to other countries, but in those countries it also very quickly stops infecting people, making the scenario end very quickly because the plague kills everyone and doesn’t infect anyone more. In a recent smallpox scenario, I started in Egypt and it infected like 10,000 people, more than usual. Then it stopped infecting people and eventually no one was infected in Egypt, the 10,000 were all dead. It spread to a bunch of other countries in Africa and infected a few people in those countries, but then stopped infecting. It even spread by plane to the USA and like 20 people got infected, and it immediately went down to 0 because everyone got killed and no one else got infected. Besides this one issue I’ve confronted, the game is super fun to play.
Great game!!!

This is by far the best game I have played. For those of who say “it’s to hard!!!!”. Well....man up. Seriously, stop complaining. Anyways this is really fun! I enjoyed destroying the whole world with a deadly plague!! Also, if you are expecting a super duper realistic plague simulator that will make everything you do make so much sense, well, you are out of luck. They don’t exist. I would suggest buying the plague pack for more fun then ever! Because I surely am! Keep up on it, Ndemic! You got this!!!
Nice

Great game

This is a very fun game. It just seems like plague and rebel inc are the only things this company has made.
Good game but...

by Brendan13398 on 2020/07/12 03:33
The game is fun and very strategy based, but the mode virus is too difficult for me, I can’t get my virus to spread throughout the entire world, without it being discovered by scientists because of the random symptoms mutations that cost dna points to get rid of, please make it easier to beat virus thank you
Great game

by gamer specter aedan on 2020/07/05 14:30
The planet of the apes and the vampire pack should be free so people can have more fun But the game is great 😀👍🏻
AWESOME GAME 🤩🤩
by GalacticCat3 on 2020/07/04 22:51
This game is an incredible time filler and super fun to play. While it is very difficult, I like that you can choose the difficult and it DOES matter how quickly you do things and evolve things, too. The only reason I’m not giving it five stars is bc when there was only one living country left,☝️, it said my disease (named imdeadyayme) hadn’t been noticed. Otherwise awesome game, really realistic, fun, and just the right amount of challenging. Definitely recommend! 👍
This Game Is Awesome
by ERTY! on 2020/07/04 18:40
When I first tried this game I had doubts, but now it’s one of my favorite games. I have lots of fun killing humanity
This is amazing
by OmG please fix this game on 2020/07/04 15:37
This is a great game. It works properly and is pretty real with human interaction and the spread of the disease. The levels are hard but it’s not impossible. I’m on bio weapon and on mega brutal. Tip: Don’t upgrade symptoms (unless it is cough or sneeze) until more than 40% of the world is infected. Also, upgrade the genetic hardening to slow the cure. You should play this game, because if you do, you will find yourself a crap tone of time and fun on this game.
Unless your rich it’s not fun

I literally can not think of anything wrong with this game (besides the fact you have to pay to get the scenarios even if you completed the game like me) It’s so cool! I hope they add new features!
You did it

I don’t understand why this game is popular. Really boring, annoying, and a signal for the stupid crap that is happening in our country now. Biggest waste of .99 cents of my life. What am I missing please help me understand.

This game stinks
by 間口 友厚 on 2020/06/21 14:51
In this game I have to infect people? No! There is already a COVID 19 game outbreak, every time they play they get worried what will happen next.
GREAT! But... (Its a Joke)
by Kirosepht on 2020/06/20 20:55
So, I went and decided to play the game, because I saw a YouTube play it, but... when I first played, I made a disease, I left my phone, then next thing I know, it went to real life. PLEASE FIX
Normal difficulty is way too hard
by darkninja1515 on 2020/06/19 19:25
The easy difficulty I’ve beaten thousands of times I used to have this game before I beat the normal difficulty like 5 times and so a year later I buy it on here and easy difficulty is still easy but normal difficulty feels like mega brutal so can u guys please lower the difficulty
Glitch
by ttttfbvf on 2020/06/19 14:25
In app purchases you can only request them ounce otherwise it’s a really good game. 3star review so it will stand out.
I mean, yeah it’s good.
by uhh im a kid on 2020/06/18 01:37
So, I downloaded plague inc like a few months ago and I love it! there are different types of scenarios if you get bored off of the 7 types of viruses and stuff.. it’s really creative! It’s also addictive and fun! (best of all: theres no ads) but um, this game has some minor issues, and issues that can be triggering. Some of the minor issues are like it kind of acts like some of the scenarios are an actual virus..such as fake-gate. Anyways, let’s move on to the issues that piss me off. So right now I didn’t really spend additional money on the game since I already bought it, and I’m on the 6th virus type, nano virus. Right off the bat you can see cure progress going up, BUT IT SAYS MY VIRUS HASNT BEEN NOTICED YET! it really pisses me off, it would make more sense if I bought some extreme stuff with DNA points but I BOUGHT TRANSMISSION AND ABILITIES!! also another minor issue, it says that some countries are already investing in cure? like I saw japan was spending 10.4k on the cure like at the start of the game and my virus hasn’t even been noticed. It’s really frustrating and is mostly the reason I can’t move on to Bio Weapon. Anyways, thanks for reading my review! PS, point it game is great but has some triggering issues that I highly recommend should be fixed, thanks!

Great game, but...
by AndrewRiela on 2020/06/16 19:27
I love this game, it’s really good. There are two things I would like to recommend. The first, is to make custom scenarios free. I know it’s a lot cheaper than on steam, but some people had a hard enough time getting the app, children like me. And the second is to make like an easy normal kind of difficulty that works to get things. It’s really hard to play.
it’s great

My favorite
by Te03civiclx on 2020/06/13 16:24
This is by far one of #1 game. I love how challenging it gets and it make me try harder each time to beat the next difficulty.
Buy This
by DCGoth on 2020/06/13 05:28
I purchased this years ago for my original iPad (Series 3, iirc) and have started playing again. Buy this. It is well worth the price, and somewhat relevant in our current time of a real pandemic. Very well written and a plethora of additional upgrades, all worth the price, and no insane paywall. All of the items are affordable and worth it overall. My one gripe is that challenging friends is linked to FaceBook. I have the app platform turned off on FB and will never link anything to FB. I do not like how they invade my privacy and sell my information, so I have no info on FB and all of my demographics on FB are fictitious.

A Great Game
by Tactical_Victory on 2020/06/10 16:11
Even though there are micro transaction, some of them can be gotten via playing the game. Many different scenarios to play, along with 4 difficulties. Along with scenarios made by people that play the game. It also can be played without WiFi, which in my opinion is a big plus. I would honestly recommend the game to people.
Only one thing
by kariya h on 2020/06/10 05:40
The way the US acts in a pandemic is unrealistic. They hardly lock down and ignore all social distancing orders, and instead stand in large groups protesting about haircuts.

Good, but a bit repetitive
by Shibby_Dude :D on 2020/06/09 20:02
Started off promising but kind of got annoying by the ending. I finished everything, even on brutal mode, but that’s just because there’s an easy way to exploit everything. Start in China, buy certain power ups, then once the whole world is infected, devolve everything and put all points in total organ failure. Boom, win every time. It was also kinda awkward that every sickness had the same pattern and upgrades. Last I checked, there’s not a prion disease that makes you vomit. Those gripes aside, I’ve enjoyed it. But I would like a lot more variety between sicknesses
Not happy.
by Not your friend anymore on 2020/06/09 18:54
I’ve had plague inc for awhile now and I use to really enjoy it. I spend quiet some dollars on the game and I no longer want to play it. I have tried to restore my purchases many times and it says it is successful but my money is never in my account. Please give me my money back.
Good game also hard and I like hard

Broken game
by BigPapaYumYums on 2020/06/03 23:54
One island nation decided to execute infected people. I was playing as a fungal indirection, so I had the overpowered ability to actually spawn infection in their country. I did this twice, but they were instantly executed. Everyone in the world died except Iceland. Game made it impossible to win.

Fabulous, and a Huge Bang For Your Buck
by squishshroom on 2020/03/16 19:14
This game is genuinely so well done. I grew up playing the flash game Pandemic 2, and once I heard my boyfriend talking about this game a little while ago, I was stoked. It really does make you think and formulate strategies specific to each disease and difficulty, which I absolutely love. If one thing worked every single time, it wouldn’t be much fun, would it? What’s supposed to be easy is easy, and what’s meant to be a challenge does not disappoint. Also love the addition of the special diseases (neurax worm, zombie plague, planet of the apes, vampires), and how you can unlock them without spending any extra money (so long as you have a little dedication and patience). I managed to unlock all four within a matter of days, and they’re stupid fun. Most negative reviews, I’ve noticed, are coming from people who complain about it being “too difficult,” but I promise you, everything can be done. Easily? No. But nothing in this game is impossible to achieve. (Don’t forget about online guides if you really are finding yourself in a pickle!) Bottom line is that this game is fantastic, and for only a dollar for the mobile version, I’m not quite sure what more you could ask for.
Great game overall
by BaseballKiiiiid on 2020/07/17 19:09
I love the game, it’s super fun to play. However, I’ve noticed that there’s a bug in the smallpox scenario, or at least I think it’s a bug. No matter what you do or where you start, after the plague infects a few hundred or a few thousand people in your starting country, it immediately stops infecting people. Sometimes it will spread to other countries, but in those countries it also very quickly stops infecting people, making the scenario end very quickly because the plague kills everyone and doesn’t infect anyone more. In a recent smallpox scenario, I started in Egypt and it infected like 10,000 people, more than usual. Then it stopped infecting people and eventually no one was infected in Egypt, the 10,000 were all dead. It spread to a bunch of other countries in Africa and infected a few people in those countries, but then stopped infecting. It even spread by plane to the USA and like 20 people got infected, and it immediately went down to 0 because everyone got killed and no one else got infected. Besides this one issue I’ve confronted, the game is super fun to play.
Awesome Game!!!
by Joeyminecraftgamer on 2018/11/23 20:28
This is a great game! It’s all about strategy. Here’s a strategy for Normal mode on the bacteria plague type. Start in China. First, save your DNA points until you have 20 or more. Then, buy drug resistance 1, bacterial resilience 1, and if you have enough left, buy water transmission 1. Next, save 50 DNA Points up. Then, complete the bacterial resilience tree, buy bacterial resilience 2 and 3. Next, save your points up to 60. Then, buy Water 2, air 1, air 2, and whatever water and air come together to make, i can’t remember what it’s called. If any symptoms mutate, devolve them immediately. This is good because your plague will infect the world faster because nobody will notice it and nobody will shut down ships, airplanes, or land borders, making it easier to spread country to country, continent to continent. Doctors will most likely only notice once a good portion of the world’s population is already dead. I tried this myself. Trust me, it works.
I’m disappointed
by TOO HARD!!!!!! on 2019/11/29 06:54
This game is very fun when it works right. I started off on the easy difficulty and managed to win after one or two tries and then moved on to normal mode in which I have spent the past 3 and a half hours trying to beat and have not been successful. The jump in difficulty from easy to normal can only be described as braindead. There was one round where I managed to get the entire world infected without my disease being noticed (I did this by devolving every symptom when it came). As soon as I started adding symptoms, within 5 minutes the country was halfway to a cure and I couldn’t produce enough dna to make symptoms that would kill off the population, because once you have a bunch of people infected the game decides that you don’t need to earn dna points anymore for whatever reason. I went online looking up ways to beat it just for my own satisfaction of having the level beat but not one of them worked either. I remember playing this game when it came out and having a lot of fun but now there’s just a bad taste in my mouth and I can’t stand the thought of turning it on again because I know it will only frustrate me to no end as I hopelessly try to beat the normal difficulty knowing that I will not succeed.
Good Game
by Nickfang33 on 2018/05/17 03:25
The game is very addictive and absolutely a ton of fun. I’ve spent days playing it and going through all the different difficulties the game has to offer and even bought a couple of the dlc desease types. My only smaller complaint (why I have 4 stars) is one I can understand but still bumps me out. The pc version has a couple more things than this version. And I can totally understand that it takes a while for the updated to be brought into mobile, I would still love to see the multiplayer option in the game. I can’t stress enough how many times I’ve wanted to play the game with a friend since they’re also a fan of this game. In all this is a very great game, worth the money but keeping in mind it isn’t a game everybody will find exciting. But it is really fun and I recommend checking the game out. I would love to know if a multiplayer option is ever to be released for the game, it really bumps me out not to see one and it would really add replay value if one was added. Once that is added I’ll give my five stars instantly!
I’ve had fun destroying mankind
by ulba12 on 2020/03/25 03:34
It has been fun, and I like that you do have to ‘win’ at different levels in order to open more advanced buggies. I am a bit miffed that I bought the lab pack and can’t seem to use the bug I created myself. I would also like to see the ability to adjust human behavior to counter “rich” countries having the advantages of medicine and facilities. Please, there are societies out there that are some of the poorest in the world, but the healthiest on this globe. Plus, as we have seen over the last few months, just because you have money doesn’t mean your stupidity stops (idiots on the beach in Florida in March as thousands die from the pandemic, or people insisting getting their hair and nails done is far more important than staying home. A bioterrorist attack would not ALWAYS be an “escaped” or “stolen”, perhaps it was a mad scientist that is slowly releasing it wanting to infect as many as possible unknowingly for as long as possible, what, too easy to kill off the dumb humans?
Needs more Realism!
by StellaIsMehName on 2018/02/25 18:11
This game is fun and a great way to pass the time while your bored or there’s nothing better to do. I enjoy the use of strategy and thinking you have to put into this game, but I would enjoy A LOT more if it was more realistic. First of all, countries of limited amount money and are somehow able to up the cure in a matter of days? I find that ridiculous. Another thing that annoys me is somehow a little cough or sneeze leads to research. In real life people would assume it’s just allergies and not go straight to the lab and find a cure. Even when it’s severe and is able to withstand almost anything possible that doesn’t slow the cure at all. I mean maybe by a day but their able to bounce back pretty quickly. I don’t enjoy how quick it is for them to cure the entire world so fast. Another flaw is that in real life we only have limited amount of resources. In the game somehow they have all the resources to ever exist. This game is fun but I would enjoy it more if it had a more realistic touch to it than it does in reality.
Liked the game - the payment disappointed me
by 11nasa22 on 2020/05/31 05:04
I liked the game but the payment disappointed me. For example when I click play scenario “everyone created equal” i read the description and thought “this is gonna be awesome”, they asked me if i wanted to play on bacteria or virus or spores etc... I chose and entered the game. There is nothing. I thought id see pop up signs like “in this world everyone is created equal and support is being sent to 3rd world nations in case of a pandemic” or pop up signs would appear where people protect a poor country. But its worse than original games. I then tried “pirate plague” where less boats and planes are travelling because of pirate piracy. I expected “pirates are looting this area and as a result traveled is reduced” and other pop up signs that really make the game feel unique. But it feels like it was abandoned and I didnt expect that for a game that was so great for 1$. Im criticizing the scenario pack, i dont think ill buy scenario creator after this PS. The random “covid 19 “message that appears during game causes stress .
Latest update
by GraveSkull on 2017/09/23 01:37
I want to start off by saying I love this game. I always have. And I've never really had issues with anything. I'm not saying they messed things up badly or anything, they probably did this on accident. Since the last update the other day, it won't show if a stat will decrease when you evolve or devolve. It still shows how much it increases, but it won't show if something will decrease a stat. While it's not a huge problem, it can kinda mess you up sometimes. Another tiny bug is that sometimes, the map bugs out and keeps trying to zoom in or out automatically and you can't select a country. The 2nd bug is fixed by reopening the game. Again, I'm pretty sure they accidentally turned off something when they were updating and forgot they did. Other than that, it's perfect. I hope you see this so you know about it for later!👍
Welcome by reading this text you have been infected with a new pathogen
by Cowboy0704 on 2017/10/08 14:36
Amazing! However they say it’s a realistic example but its not. There is unlimited funding and somehow they know it’s a new disease just because nausea is a symptom even on casual it seems that a checkup involves blood work or something also the scientists find a cure way too fast hiv hasn’t been cured yet but it’s been around for 40 something years they can cure any . disease in like 2-4 years it also doesn’t consider malaria and other deaths it’s like everybody stops dying and giving birth when your disease has started. Then people start dying again once your disease becomes lethal. The world has unlimited money and one time only 200 people were still alive and somehow that number could cure my disease. Definitely worth the 99 cents it cost but I hate the In app purchases it still gives me an add for unlocking all the plague types when I already unlocked all them by playing the game
Great game!
by hi i don't want to use my name on 2019/02/16 16:25
I want to start by saying that this is a great game. It’s really fun, and it’s definitely worth getting. There are two points that I’m seeing about the game that I want to defend: 1) It’s too expensive. I’m seeing a lot of people saying that it’s too hard to get all of the modes, but that’s the challenge. That’s a bit of motivation for playing the game. The only thing that you really have to buy in the app it the scenarios, which is a huge expansion. All together, that’s only about 4 dollars, and I’ve been playing this game a lot and enjoying it a lot. Definitely worth it. 2) It’s unrealistic. What do you expect? It’s a game. If you, the disease, can mutate lots of abilities and transmissions and other stuff, and basically had endless resource, it’s only fair that the cure has lots of unrealistic funding. Otherwise, the game would be too easy. This is really long. Basically: I love the game.
It’s good but...
by The Iron Jet!!😎😎😎 on 2020/04/23 00:43
The game is good. It’s addicting, but one thing is wrong. I play normal mode to unlock the new virus, keep in mind I’m on the first virus 🦠. Normal mode is not normal. It is extremely hard mode. It is impossible to get people to die, but infecting the whole world? Oh it’s a piece of cake! When iCure becomes successful the cure process becomes way faster. I HAD THREE STRAINS AND BOTH DRUG RESISTANT AND THE OTHER ONE TOO (I forgot what it was called) EVEN WHEN THE CURE HITS 50% IT STARTS TO SPEED UP THE PROCESS OF THE CURE! all I’m asking is, making normal actually normal, get rid of iCure, and slow down the process of the cure and let people actually get to the second virus. And also make upgrades less expensive. That’s a flaw too. I be trying to upgrade near the death of man kind as we know it, and when the whole freaking world is infected, I don’t get DNA 🧬, which means I can’t upgrade, which means the cure is made, which means I lose, and when I come so close and lose, so many freakin times, I get mad. I want to move on bro, is that too much to ask?
Just one issue for me
by despicable human on 2020/04/05 21:32
I love the game and I recently became hooked again and I’m beginning to notice a common occurrence, My disease is killed off due to random mutations. I don’t mind the mutations it’s that I wish they didn’t cost so much to devolve. I know you have a gene that makes devolve costs not as much but could they in some modes/difficulties have no cost and no reward for the random mutations. Keep the cost for devolving symptoms/transmissions/abilities to cost DNA points. I find myself to have just bought an upgrade early game and bam, a symptom mutates and cost 7+ dna points to devolve and my disease gets spotted. Other than that I love all the games you make (Plague Inc. and Rebel Inc.) and think that people should at least look into your games. If this does not change I will not be very bothered because I still love the game it’s just a recommendation from me.
Consistency would be nice
by Yazo675 on 2020/01/27 06:03
The games fun and it’s a dollar, as one of the top reviews states. The tutorial tells you how to accrue biopoints or whatever they’re called by infecting and deaths the only problem is the game isn’t consistent. I kept devolving my virus so that it wasn’t detected and infected pretty close to the entire population so according to the tutorial I still should have been accruing those biopoints right? Well the points stopped coming but I was banking the points I was getting, up to the point it stopped and made it lethal the tutorial also says deaths accrue bio points too well again not accurate. Spent all my points the death toll SKYROCKETED no points so I have a pretty susceptible bacteria. I was counting on the points I SHOULD have gotten from the death toll but I didn’t get any except from the yellow bubbles which was not even close to enough to evolve ANYTHING and the cure was made in like a month in game time and the game was over. I would suggest making your game according to your tutorial. And it would be great! Until then it’s okay.
Good but could be better
by Dustin412 on 2017/10/24 10:10
I like the game. It takes strategy, passes time well, fairly in depth. I like the premise, but it’s kind of unrealistic. You can try to progress your disease to be aggressive, but people die off too quickly. Sometimes it’s easy to infect other countries but somehow some of the smaller can go un-affected. Once the disease progresses and more countries get infected, anytime you upgrade the transmission, countries and regions automatically counter it somehow, even the more poor areas of the world. Also it seems like the abilities to increase effectiveness of your disease in wealthy countries and to slow down cure research and make it harder to cure do nothing. I had the drug resistance 1-2, genetic hardening 1-2 and genetic reshuffle1-3, but somehow there was a cure for my disease in 2 1/2-3 years, without even severe symptoms. That’s just on normal difficulty, i cant imagine brutal or mega brutal difficulty. I love the game but maybe tweak it just a little to make it a bit more realistic.
An all time favorite
by Kingsspan on 2018/07/01 05:37
I’ve had this game downloaded on multiple accounts over multiple devices since it first was released. This game is an all time favorite of mine. I can go months without playing it, and then jump right back into it and get drawn into the gameplay and challenge of it all over again. It has great replayability, and I’ve heard the board game is equally as fun. My only complaint is the amount of in-app purchases. While many things can be unlocked during gameplay, they tend to be ridiculously hard. The prices for certain extras should be lowered or grouped together. As someone else pointed out, with the money you’d spend getting the game and all expansions, you could’ve bought a higher quality PC/console game with more in it. TLDR; all time favorite game, wish the in-app purchases weren’t how they are.
Good Game, But Could Use Updates
by Plague Inc. Reviews on 2017/07/17 19:16
If your a beginner at this game and you have no clue on how to beat brutal or mega brutal it becomes pay- to win. I am quite new to this and only re-installed it 2 weeks ago. This game doesn't need Wifi or internet so if you're looking for a good game without internet, this might be for you. If you have beat Mega Brutal then you are a genius at strategy. By the way if you want to beat the game easily with a basic plague type than use the virus plague. I currently have every plague type in the game and if you want a cool plague type and you like zombies get the Necora Virus. This game is the best I have played. If you like Planet of the apes then get the Simian Flu and if you like brain worms then get the Nurax Worm. If you like Creepy vampires then get the Shadow plague. This game needs more plagues so please add some! All and all this game is epic!
Great Strategic game
by msjuris on 2019/07/18 12:10
I’ve been playing this game for nearly 10 years. While other games have been down loaded and then deleted from my phone -Plague, Inc Is the only game that I’ve never stopped playing or deleted due to boredom. It is challenging and thought provoking. It’s a game I don’t mind losing, especially if I accomplish my own goals. I will play the game to see if I can take out one area of the map without doing much damage to another. I can’t praise this game enough. It’s the only game that I have never been required to pay any money to continue playing. It has been free for as long as I’ve been playing. Don’t know if any other game that can make that same claim. You can control the speed of game play, pause games and save them for later. It’s an all around excellent game. Love it.
A lot of fun, but some major errors that should be fixed
by prof1011 on 2018/04/15 04:01
This is a great simulation. But as something that aspires to be realistic, there are a few irksome details that should be fixed. First off, no country in the modern world can stop animals and insects from passing across its borders. Completely impossible. Ask any biologist. Islands like New Zealand, Madagascar and Iceland are well within the range of birds. The idea that these countries would be completely immune to disease right next to them is completely unrealistic, as is the idea that any country could just ‘eliminate birds!’ Really?! Every since one of the millions? Good luck with that- modern armies can’t even eliminate 100% of humans in a given region, certainly not all animals without killing themselves in the process. Secondly, cures don’t roll out to hundreds of millions of people Ina a matter of days- it’s more like months and years! If a team of doctors in Canada find a cure, no, the entire continent of Africa is not going to get that cure in a week. They’d be lucky to administer it in a year! And when 99% of Canada’s population is dead, where are they finding the resources to cure even a handful of people? Then minor things- like I understand not all ports are shown, but no commence btwn LA and the Pacific Rim? Hello, it’s probably the largest single commercial route in the world!
Sick fun! Love it!
by Izzy's Aunt Meme on 2018/12/10 22:23
I’m a bug that destroys the world! Really clever and lots of fun. From casual to mega-brutal difficulties, you can choose how you want to play. I’ve been enjoying this game for free for over a year! If you have patience & some skill, you can earn the DNA and don’t have to pay anything for that part. I decided it was totally worth it to purchase the additional scenarios and unlock some extra DNA sequences. A few things I’d like to see in an update: 1. More spaces to name my bug, as I like to add the date & difficulty I played at (alternately, just add this info to the ‘high score’ section). 2. I don’t really care about recording the score on games I didn’t win. 3. During game play, I’d like to be able to reference which pre-game selections I chose (perhaps on the disease tab). Many thanks to the developer. Love it!
Really good game but one suggestion
by Rabbid dogg1000 on 2017/08/06 17:06
I love this game and I believe it is incredibly well made, although there has not been a major update made in an incredibly long time and having beaten most of the diseases on mega-brutal I also have not played it in the same length of time. If I might make a suggestion I think that a multiplayer feature would give me and others a reason to start playing again. An example of how this could work is maybe one player controls the disease and the other controls the countries attempting to cure it. Or maybe it can just work similarly to the board game where each player controls a different disease and compete against each other to be the first to infect the world. Still rating five stars however just because I love this game
Shall we play a game?
by Crashingthroughthesnow on 2020/03/11 04:02
Well lemme tell you guys a story. My sister bought me this game + all the in-app purchases last February but I never got around to playing it until about this past December. So there I was, sitting there, drinking a beer, and I decided to give it a go. I launch the app and a lovely little screen pops up and says “Shall we play a game?” Of course I’m like “well I’d love to” and then it’s like asking me all the questions about naming my disease and being the smartass I am decided to name it after my beer. Well I fell asleep that night and never finished the game but today I launch it and whatdaya know, I’m conquering the world but my death rate’s only 3%. In any case, 10/10 for immersion! I’m hoping to get around to finish it soon, I think I have to kill the world to win... wish me luck!
Necroa flaw
by Krista&Cory on 2020/03/11 08:11
When playing Necroa (which is a paid upgrade) I cannot move zombie hordes while also popping zombie bubbles! The bug/glitch is that when you click on the “horde” option it opens the “info” screen instead of allowing you to place the horde in a country. SUPER ANNOYING!! I’ve spent the entire day trying to figure out winning combos & strategies only to get most of the way there (even following directions I found online for BRUTAL mode on normal mode) and CANNOT win because of the glitch!! I’m super frustrated like why is that even on the same menu bar as the directive?! Will be deleting the app soon if this stupid “info” option isn’t removed from the move horde menu bar! Other than that... the game is super duper fun and I’ve quite enjoyed destroying humanity through various bio hazards 😉 Love that it takes strategic thinking but I wish the Necroa wasn’t so hard to beat... makes it not very fun!
How to contact the developers???
by Honest Customer_ on 2018/12/28 19:09
I absolutely love this game. I’ve had it for a while now and it’s my favorite game to play on car rides and other long trips. In fact, I loved it so much that I bought the option to unlock all scenarios a little while back. However, I had to delete the game for a couple months when I was low on space, and when I downloaded it again I had lost access to those scenarios. I’m confused why this happened, I would think that since I still owned the game (it just wasn’t on my phone) any purchases I made should be upheld. I don’t want to pay for it again, but I loved the scenarios and would like to continue playing them. I can’t seem to find a way to contact anyone to solve this issue so if anyone has a way to help me either contact someone or solve the problem please let me know!
This game is AWESOME!!!
by Freddy Foxy Bonnie Chika on 2018/06/05 18:39
This game definitely needs at least a 3 star rating because, even though it isn’t realistic, it’s updates lately have really made it fun (except for the fact that in one of the scenarios fun is banned but you get to bring it back anyway, so who cares?) You can play it any time and win if you know what countries to infect first so that it infects the whole world and if you have the right strategies. I mean, once I played it once I told my family about it and they love it (it is very hard to find some thing that they like) so much they wouldn’t stop playing it until they got and won all the scenarios and beat every disease type on mega brutal They LOVED it so I bet you and your family will too (if they like making humanity extinct)
Good but..
by Eli ELM on 2020/04/18 15:32
I really love this game and I made it all the way up to prion but then I was stuck I even tried looking up ways to beat I was getting quite bored with the game and really wanted to play to play the special diseases and wanted to try out all the scenarios and the custom ones so I got the plague pack but I was little upset I thought it was going to include the scenario creator and also I wish you would be able to download as many custom scenarios as you would like but I understand how expensive it can be so I’m fine with that but I spend the exact money on a new vr game which is a lot more fun and just an awesome experience kind of weird example but works it’s kind of a big investment to get everything you need but overall it’s quite a fun game I’m happy with buying the $1 game not quite with the $13 plague pack
One of the best games on iOS
by LollyLocutus on 2018/09/06 05:10
Who hasn't dreamed of taking over the world? Well. This isn't exactly that but destroying it is the next best thing. It's hard at first and then it gets even more difficult over time, and I bet you'll love every moment of it. The one thing I wish it had was a single button I could press to simply buy everything. But don't worry, everything in the game can be unlocked as you play. I just didn't want to beat everything else to play as a nano-virus. The display UI is as simple to master as the concept of the game itself. The graphics allow for understanding of the spread while the "news real" hands out just enough detail to keep you entertained without having to show just how horrific it is. The only issue with the graphics for me is that the world doesn't turn black as the disease kills the world. It just kind of darkens a bit. I want it black! First, burn it red with infection and then burn it black with death! But meh. That little nitpick isn't enough to keep me away. So give this a go for those days when you just want the world to end in new and imaginative ways each more horrifying than the last.
Great game but irritating
by BobZombie88062015 on 2019/07/23 13:35
This game is awesome, but I only rated it four starts because of the difficulty. There’s a fine line between challenging and downright frustrating, and most of us don’t play games to be annoyed. You can buy cheats, however, which leads me to believe that the difficulty may have been designed that way. For example, once the world begins developing a cure, you have a limited amount of time to wipe everyone out: because they WILL finish it and it WILL work, and it WILL cure EVERYONE every single time. You use DNA points to evolve your organism to spread and infect the world (multiple times I’ve infected the entire global population) only for my disease to be spotted, and the cure begins... but there’s no one left to infect, hence no more DNA, hence you can’t make your disease lethal and they cure it and you fail. Like I said, it’s a very fun game, but in all honesty had I known it would be as annoying as it can be I wouldn’t have paid for it.
Absolutely Amazing
by ETHANDMA on 2020/03/15 16:48
I agree with fish time again’s statement, this game isn’t easy, it is something that it’s very fun when you find different strategies to succeed, it’s just one dollar and if you wanna unlock just certain packages and game passes, then you can do that, you pay less than Plague Inc. pc users, because you can get the game with available packs and other things to buy IF YOU WANT, I want to point that out because if you don’t wanna buy anything it’s fine, you could just play your way through to unlock most things I believe, while in PC, you buy the game for 15 dollars and you have everything unlocked. It may be unnecessary for some people to do this, so that’s why I rate this game in the App Store version a 5/5
Mega Brutal problems and Realism.
by julschris7 on 2019/01/02 20:01
The DNA when you start is ok, but when you advance to the stage where you infected your whole starting country and other countries then the DNA slows down to 1-2 DNA per 300,000 to 500,000 and for that amount your should at least earn 10+ DNA. Also I killed about 60 million people and only got 2 DNA. Absolutely ridiculous. Also in Mega Brutal your disease when it is discovered and lasts for 50 or 100 days, so many countries invest in research for a disease that literally has no symptoms and is harmless but treated like the Black Plague, Smallpox, HIV, Chicken Pox, harmful tumors, or cancer. It is pretty unrealistic considering there are other disease out there needing that attention. I don’t mind the fact that no humans die or old age or are birthed, but I would love to see that in the game. If you improve this I would give 5 stars no doubt. Great game, but has lots of issues.
BEST VIRUS SIMULATOR OUT!
by CButera24 on 2019/07/21 23:11
I started playing this game what has to be almost 5 years ago now and it’s one of my favorites. I keep the app on the main screen of my phone right up front. Payed for the full unlock with all the trimmings. Played every scenario and virus type. Huge fan and the game has never, IMO, had any issues I’ve encountered or bugs that have made the game function in any other way than its intention. I love that you can unlock everything or just buy it. But the company isn’t cash grabbing us by losing the game with micro transaction just to keep the fun going. You pay once and THATS IT! Just fun from there on out. Awesome game everyone! I completely recommend this game to anyone reading this review. Go ahead, enjoy yourself!
Way too difficult.
by LinxCEO on 2017/10/14 09:55
I’ve been playing games exactly like this for like 10 years and I’ve never seen one as difficult as this... Jesus, even the “easy” mode is impossible. And I use a proven effective method. Maximize infected, then hit with the deadly symptoms. However I had like 3 test games doing different methods, all on “casual” mode, and I lost all three. Game 1- Infected the entire world, waited, racked up DNA points, then I went in for the kill... cure was developed in about 30 seconds and I lost immediately because I totally stopped getting DNA points after I started killing off the population. Game 2- Same as game one, but before I started buying deadly symptoms I sold the transmission upgrades so I had some points to spend. Cure developed at a steady pace, stopped getting DNA points, lost the game. Game 3- I maximized the infected, then I started buying drug resistance. Then I just didn’t even have enough DNA points to kill anybody. Ended up buying not even lethal upgrades, then I lost because the cure was being developed and I got like 2 DNA points every 10 seconds. I couldn’t buy anything. At least make the easy mode easy. Give us a more steady income of DNA points instead of just totally cutting it off at 5% lethality. Deleting the game. I’m not gonna play if an experienced strategy gamer can’t even beat easy mode.
It’s a Great Game...
by werewolf36 on 2019/01/01 02:03
But there’s a problem. People have sung the praises of this game and I agree with everything others have said. The reason I’ve given this game 3 stars is because the Custom Scenario’s just stopped working. It’s not an issue with making them or playing the ones I’ve already downloaded - that still works fine. The problem is that I can’t download any new ones. Every time I try, it gives my the loading screen and then closes to show that nothing has downloaded. I’ve uninstalled and reinstalled the game and that hasn’t fixed it. If this is a bug, I’d suggest getting it fixed immediately. Once that happens, I’ll give the game the 5 stars it deserves.
Needs to start killing people faster
by VelvettFogg on 2018/02/15 22:27
I like the game but I have one problem: people won’t die quick enough. I had lots of deadly things and the game was on casual and I still barely killed anyone. The game should also give you more dna points or give them to you faster. The cure should also be developed slower because the moment I add some stuff, people where already working on a cure, and this was on the easiest mode possible. People who haven’t played the game are probably gonna call me a noob and people who have are probably gonna tell me it’s supposed to be as difficult as it is, but I think you shouldn’t barely be able to kill anyone. Just a thought developers. I highly doubt the developers will even read this and fix the problems I had so yeah.
Cool
by DatAsianBoiDoe on 2018/12/17 05:50
I’ll start by addressing the criticisms of this game. People say you have to buy everything. I’ve beaten everything on Brutal and it unlocks the special scenarios after I beat the first 7 on Brutal. People say you can’t even beat normal. Normal is surpisingly easy. IF YOU DON’T PUT TOTAL ORGAN FAILURE AS ONE OF YOU’RE SYMPTOMS TWO MONTHS IN. The reason you have to pay for the scenarios is that the devs work hard to make them. Now for my praise. This gane is really fun. I don’t know what else to say other than that. Killing the low 7.1 billion people (really should be updtaed to at least 7.5 billion but oh well) is surprisingly fun. I swear I’m not a psychopath. Thanks for the fun game, Ndemic! Keep it up! P.S. You guys should totally add a scenario creator for Rebel Inc., too.
It’s a good game but...
by Master Jedi Danger on 2020/07/21 20:59
Right now I only have the virus,And whenever I play a normal difficulty to try and get the next one, soon I have most of the world dead, but then there will be one or two countries that don’t get infected at all. When that happens, I don’t end up getting any DNA points at all! It’s just hard to play when I can’t progress. And, I don’t want to buy them all (I don’t want to sound like too much of a choosing beggar,That’s only because my dad won’t allow me to buy them. All in all, this game is amazing but I just would like it better if it was easier to actually progress instead of just doing Christmas scenario 50 times so that I can actually play the game (I like the scenarios that you guys provide!) scenarios are good, but I usually play them just because I can beat virus on normal mode.
A lot of fun you can beat everything without needing to buy any of the actual expansion pack items.
by Smiley & the Bandits on 2018/12/06 02:48
You however cannot buy the custom scenario kit without it trying to make you buy it twice apparently. This infuriated me deeply is all I wanted to do was to play my own scenario that I made. Very convoluted difficult and I wasn’t able to play even after already buying it. It sends you in a never ending circle sending you to the scenario kit then back the to the game it never ends. So stick to the game I guess until they fix that glitch. Other than that I’ve wasted hours playing this game I love vampire mode it was especially satisfying earn your way up to it.
Addicting with tons of content
by JellyApple102 on 2020/02/02 23:34
It can take a few tries but once you figure out how everything works in conjunctions with each other the game gets super fun and addicting. Each disease has 4 difficulty levels. Casual, normal, brutal, and mega brutal. Beating one on normal or higher will unlock the next main one. There are 4 special ones that can be unlocked for free, even though the game doesn’t tell you that. You have to beat all the main ones on brutal to unlock the first one, and then beating a special one on brutal will unlock the next special one. Each is a different challenge that is vastly different from the one before it. In addition to those, there are scenarios, or special plague games. There are a bunch unlocked for free. They can range from crafting and spreading a fake news story to simulating a hit board game sale. There are more scenarios to get for a a couple bucks, as well as user created custom scenarios, which give the game also it unlimited replay ability. All in all, awesome game, everyone should give it a shot!
Good game
by Tv Man the Dude Derp on 2020/08/02 04:39
Best mobile game I’ve ever played. It’s a nice Brian exercise along with some satisfying moments. Most negative reviews come from people who complain that it’s too hard. Everything can be completed, maybe not as easy as you thought but still. Fist thing to do once you finish the tutorial is look up strategies online. This will give you the best idea of how the game works and what you need to do to be successful. After that, all you need is a little bit of confidence and skill and you’ll dominate. And if you are one of those people who just want to destroy the world with no real difficulty and challenge, you can buy cheats for 8 dollars. This will allow you to basically do whatever you want with no consequences.
Fun game, some issues.
by SolarNightFlare on 2020/03/24 19:48
This games fun and all, but there needs to be a way where you can keep getting some mutation points. Towards the end of the infection, you get nothing and if you don’t have a quick enough lethality, you always end up losing to research even with the research resistance maxed out. You hardly get any during the last couple days/months of in game time. That, or de-evolving should give back more points than just 2. Why do we have to spend 10-27 points just to get back 2 in the late game, I understand because it makes the game harder. But, it’s almost unplayable late game unless you 100% have some way to cheat that, with some method a bunch of wiz kids put together on the internet.
Best game I’ve played all year
by audreythelittlepanda on 2020/03/07 19:18
I absolutely love this game! My whole family is hooked, although there are a couple cons. First off, this game is super fun, but once you kill/infect a bunch of people it becomes insanely hard to earn DNA points. Second, once people realize that there needs to be a cure, the cure ends up progressing insanely fast no matter how much drug resistance i have. Third, normal is pretty dang hard to beat! I’ve tried playing it several times, but I just can’t kill/infect everyone. Anyways, enough with the cons, let’s get to the pros! As I titled this review, it really is the best game I’ve played in 2020. I can’t stop playing, and neither can my family!! It’s amazing! Thanks for reading, and sorry for the long review!
Game is too easy but fun
by Tairoholic on 2020/02/03 07:38
Have to wonder about the people complaining about difficulty. Seriously. Once you figure out to keep symptoms removed entirely until youre ready to mass murder, the game is easy as pie on any difficulty.......I figured this out my 3rd game and it has been a cake walk since with any virus type or difficulty. This didnt require google or reddit, how to win stares you right in the face.....Too hard? LOL, no. Too basic. I gave it 5 because its still insanely fun. The game is too easy, I cannot believe anyone would downvote the game because they cant see 1 simple and logical decision. The same tactic can be used with any plague type, even virus.....
It good! But some :/ also some idea for you!
by Mom of Deaf son on 2020/03/10 05:15
So I think price kinda too price I mean ape and vampire I have to pay 9 dollars so I think should free or all in one app I don’t want all I just think better one app all. Also I wish more realistic because airplane really I mean there like 100,000 each month but one airplane 6 time in one month ehhhh it unrealistic also I wish more story not too fast you can put in story mode or fast mode (normal) for example story being in the China virus name is Cadi-20 what her name how start I think more fun story telling also symptoms it most annoying for me because I want that I want not change I want that but sometime game will auto organ failure I don’t want I want stay. Scenario is cool but I don’t understand why it have to price they make.
Great game, really annoying glitch
by Clark6050 on 2017/11/01 04:15
I’ll start out by saying that this is an amazing game. I’d recommend the pc version over this, but if you want to be able to play this on the go then this is a great purchase. If the glitch I’m about to talk about has been patched then ignore this and buy it. The glitch is that after the game is closed (even if it is cleared) if you tilt your screen the view will switch even though Portrait Orientation is set to locked. Sometimes you may have to restart your phone if it keeps doing it after trying to lock and unlock your PO. Other than that I am greatly enjoying this game and I would recommend it. I would give it 5/5 stars without the glitch.
Ignore the Hateful Comments
by Flipflan the Destroyer on 2017/11/03 20:47
Unlike some of the comments say, this game is not too hard to beat and is actually really easy once you have a strategy. I saw a comment that said, "You have to buy everything to get anywhere." But that statement was not true. I have beaten all the standard plagues on brutal without assistance from a guide (except for fungus, I just have a really hard time on fungus). I didn't buy anything except the game. Scenarios aren't free but the the game developer explains why. Cheats are earned and so are the plagues that completely change how you can play. If you have a good enough strategy this game is completely do able.
Addicting BUT too difficult!!
by This girls liking it! on 2019/06/21 02:55
I’ve been playing this game for a while, and I still have yet to beat a game! I’ve used strategies and everything. Nothing works. DNA needs to come in at a faster pace. Because right when you start killing people off, you also stop getting any DNA at all! And then on top of that, the cure moves too quickly, even if you’ve upgraded the plagues resistance 100%. I’ve even tried using proven strategies to beat the game and even that has yet to work. All his combined leaves the game to be really frustrating and just not fun after a while. This is definitely not a game for people with little patience. It’s definitely a fun and addicting game. But I wouldn’t recommend it if you actually want to win the game! I would suggest just using this app to pass the time. That’s all.
I love this game!!

This game is amazing, I would recommend it to everyone. I really like how much realism it has. The amount of time it takes to develop a cure, to the amount of real problems that countries have that could impact the development of your virus. One of my favorite parts is that there are many scenarios to play for free. My fav scenario is the vampire one. It is so crazy and really thoughtful of what people would think of when they actually had to deal with vampires. Anyways, there are also some unrealistic parts to it too. Like how can the cure get from country to country so fast, I don’t understand. (Wow I’m impressed that you have read this far XD)
Very Fun!!!

This game is so good because you can get so many different infections. But I wish they had an update so you can zoom in on the map and start your infection on a more specific place. It is fun because I can just watch everything happen all at once! It is also good that you can edit your infection simply by evolving (in fact much more simple than that). Normally I lose and I still like it though because I just love trying out new infections. This version has very high quality and is actually very popular now around the world. I appreciate this app because of how much detail there is. Anyway, YOU MUST BUY THIS GAME!!!!
This game is the best

It is a very fun game with a cool area of gameplay and I would definitely recommend this to all of my friends. I have had a challenging time to complete each plague but that is what makes it fun to play. It has given me so many ideas to make my own in the plague creator and I really wish for this game to get more updates to it. It also helps me to think up of strategies that others could use. I also feel as if it has shown me how careful you need to be about your health like in the game and how easy it can be to get sick due to poor health choices. I hope others will enjoy the game as much as I do.
