Awesome Game
by jeennenddndjjdndbdk on 2021/03/03 16:39
Ok I’ve been playing this game for a while now and it has been so much fun. I think the new cure mode good to I really like the charts they show explaining if the virus is increasing or decreasing in a region I was just wondering if you can put the charts in the normal mode too. I think that would be awesome.

by Colieee777 on 2021/02/28 11:04
The game has a learning curve, but once you get the hang it’s awesome. No ads what so ever, you can progress your way through unlocking all types of disease. The expansion packs are very reasonably priced. 10/10 recommend!

Fun Game with a MAJOR issue
by 👁❤️😸 on 2021/02/27 04:40
This game is extremely fun. You get to play at your own pace and experience a fun time. But there are a few things that people may not like. Paying money to play. Having a ton on in app purchases. And the game being ‘hard.’ In reality, yes it’s hard but working at it will make it better. But now for the one issue that pisses me off the most. This game does not do what it says. I accidentally made a purchase to buy all the variants of diseases bacteria, virus, spore, etc. And I did some digging and found out how to restore the purchase. I followed the directions and found the ‘Restore Purchases’ button only to find that it doesn’t work. This game doesn’t allow you to restore a purchase. I didn’t play after I accidentally bought the pass. So I don’t know why it isn’t working. Please update this because that $2.99 could be spent somewhere better.
Muy espectacular esta app

Bug fix
by 3picgamer on 2021/02/23 15:43
Great game overall, but on the iphone 12 pro, the abilities are covered by the bottom world, country, etc infection bar. Please fix, it makes the cure mode and others unplayable.

When I was playing Plague Inc when there is a country that is not infected it closes its ports and airplanes too so can you fix that I think it’s a bug.
Good game but not perfect

Simply, the countries of the world are unrealistically smart. No Karens are trying to disprove fact checkers in fake news scenario. No people arguing about it.

Can you add more symptoms to plague inc?

I really like the game but add more symptoms like all the symptoms in the Black Death into the main game and dehydration and buboolus swells in the trachea and stomach
Okay

It is a good game because if you feel like you need a strategy game but not a Gun game but a game that you need to destroy something I like how you can kill mankind in the game I hope you’re crazy game keeps up!!! i mean that in a good way just saying
Great game
by LisaG702 on 2021/02/13 18:36
I love this game! Honestly, this is a perfect balance between hardness and being able to beat it. You know it’s possible and then that one game when you beat it you are so happy. I play this game daily!
DNA points
by Gaming_Noob on 2021/02/13 16:57
So overall this game is really good but when I play and I infect everybody I can barely get more DNA points. But this is a really good game

Plague inc is a great game. People may complain about in app purchases, you can unlock almost every thing but just being good at the game, and it’s a fun game all together!
Please read! 😄
by King_Penguin. on 2021/02/11 20:33
All of the 1 star reviews you see are one of three, Their Phone/Tablet is broken, They are a Karen or a small child that thinks this game started COVID-19 or, they are bad at the game, and say it’s pay to win (which it’s not). So please don’t listen to those reviews! 👍🏻 Thanks for your time, King_Penguin (An 11 Y/O child). 😃

How?
by kysWorld on 2021/02/07 23:39
So I deleted the app but installed it again but everything I purchased in the app I have to purchase again? How do I fix this?
Why does the game keep breaking
by Deformed Rabbit on 2021/02/07 21:57
How come countries with no cure are able to not get infected??? The scripting is terrible, why no talent?
I’m good at the game but needs like a picture for iPad

So this game is really good but it has sie bugs that is annoying. The bugs are no virus

This game is great I have only had it for a few hours but it is still really fun but at the same time a bit educational. I would suggest this to my friends.
Curing fungus?..

Cure mode for fungus is impossible, even on Normal. Authority degrades way too quickly

Insane virus and bacteria in your game where you try to infect the whole entire world I try to get the disease away from the world but sometimes 668 sometimes I fail but it’s real life on the game is just so amazing I love it but it just makes the game a whole bunch more fun that it’s actually a game that’s pretty much virus and bacteria I named my virus COVID-19 which is actually a real virus in the world
DNA points
by gheicudnw on 2021/02/06 19:38
This game is so fun and amazing and definitely makes you think. The only problem is the lack of DNA points you get once the cure starts happening. I went from having 70 to 0 because I used it on cure prevention. That did close to nothing to help stopping that. And once the cure starts and the people start passing, you get no DNA points from the people dying.
New cure mode
by Topher Lilly on 2021/02/06 19:05
I love the new cure mode, it adds so much to the game. I think one thing they could do is add a multiplayer function, where one of your friends is the infection and you are the cure, see who wins!
Progressive
by Shoal and on 2021/02/05 20:16
I would like to thank this game for setting a great example for humanity and where to focus our energies (destroying the planet) I’d like to thank apple and the App Store too. Genuinely, genius people.

Dangerously fun
by ryan4563 on 2021/02/03 22:58
Beating everything on mega brutal I have a good feel of the game. This game is difficult and has a risk vs reward feel to it two things please change bio-weapon cure mode I have won 2 times on mega brutal AND IT IS PAIN. Secondly add cure mode scenarios like poor country’s are more vulnerable to disease giving panic, or people don’t care as much about a cure. Thanks for reading and feel free adding anything I mentioned above.

The game teaches you about parasites and other things! Also it’s very kid friendly! They donated $250,000 to the W.H.O.You should get this game to learn, and help good causes happen from buying the game.

The Best Infection Game Ever!
by DE1014 on 2021/02/02 16:22
This Game Is The Best Infection Game! There’s No Ads, Like Imagine Being In A Non-Skipable Ad For 30 Seconds, That Will Cause It To Be A 2 Star Game! Cheats Are Very Fun, That’s Because It’s Like A Sandbox But With Cheats On, There Needs To Be A Sandbox Mode For The Rookies! Making Scenarios Is A Great Creativity Level! Tho It’s In separate Apps. It’s Still A Great Creativity Level! Thank You For Creating This Game!
Totally worth it
by Pink Sebra on 2021/01/30 00:23
Im tryna write this before my phone dies- anyway, this game is awesome and its super fun! Im the kind of person who’s disease is named Covid 😏 and Im currently trying to beat everything on Brutal. Ive already beat the bio weapon and the virus and its so fun i- just get it. You will not be dissapointed. One thing i would like to see added is some kind of minigame you can do once everyone’s infected where you can get bonus DNA points so the game’s not over as soon as you run out and everyone’s been infected but the cures almost ready. That could be fun but idk.
Very realistic
by PushMyDaisy on 2021/01/29 16:32
Very realistic. Almost too realistic. I started a game with a virus named COVID and now it’s everywhere. Literally. Like, I actually want the cure for it at this point, but the game kinda took on a life of its own and it began fighting back by mutating on it’s own. Not sure if it’s a bug or a feature. Either way, great game.
Awesome game

The cure mode fungus normal mode
by Magine this text on 2021/01/29 01:36
So the cure mode is a really good mode and I’m on fungus because I cannot be normal mode for it because it seems to be bugged out or just on a harder difficulty like mega or just regular brutal so can you fix the difficulty because the normal mode on cure is very hard because of the riots and the panic and your health goes down very fast so can you fix the difficulty
Love the game
by KingNeriss on 2021/01/28 15:15
Been playing for a couple years now, and it’s still fresh and super fun! Difficulty feels balanced and the gameplay is solid but addictive. No complaints other than two bugs; when I play the Christmas scenario it calls the DNA “Authority” like the Cure Mode, and no matter how well I do in the Board Games, I never get a score. Otherwise, masterpiece!

I understand that the game came out in 2012 when the population of 7.086 billion people, But could you update the world population in the game to something like 7.800 billion. I’m not asking for an accurate number but at least update the population every 2 years. Ps: love your game <3

You shouldn't have to pay for something and not even get everything in the game. Ok f you ask me, that's kind of ridiculous.
Not that hard
by DeStrati on 2021/01/20 03:28
The number one complaint seems to be that the game is too difficult, but as someone who has been playing for not too long, the game is not as hard as people say, it is tricky on the normal difficulty, and extremely hard on the max difficulty but that’s the intent, the people who act like easy mode is the only possible way to win are just terrible at the game.
Plague ic evolved
by jfjfhfbrhdhfbf on 2021/01/20 03:16
This game is fun really fun helps with a lot of things but the only thing is is that the cure goes on its own and no way of stopping that so 3 stars for this game just fix the bug!

Plague, Inc. is a genius game made by a bunch on geniuses. You legit get to kill every one on earth, which is pretty fun (when implemented into a game...). I feel that all of the in-app purchases are completely necessary, as the Plague, Inc. Team has put hours of hard work into the game. Peace out my men 😭😭😷😷🦠🦠🦠🦠

by quadonkdonk on 2021/01/14 04:00
Greenland has 6 airports and on plague inc there is only the sea port. I feel like I get cheated out of harder games when the country is able to close off everything in one place. Sure it’s part of the game and sure it makes the game harder but there are other ways to make the game harder. You did it with cure mode after all. That is IMPOSSIBLE! And I loved it! I hope if you survey, that this would show popularity as an idea. Love, Penny Sylvia.
Highly recommended!!!

Necroa Virus Post Cure Update
by Cowlv on 2021/01/11 23:09
I had purchased this game years ago and the necroa virus expansion. Ever since this Cure Update I haven’t been able to open this virus even though in the app is still shows that I’ve beaten the game with this disease. And it shows that I own it in the App Store. If I could either have a refund on the I think two dollars, or preferably get access to what I already purchased. I would have given a 5 star with out this issue because besides this one hiccup it is an extremely fun, dynamic game.
Nice work

by MusicLovestar67 on 2021/01/10 22:54
I too used to think this was too hard to beat but when I really thought about each microorganism & how they spread usually in real life I added it to this game. Also 2 biggest tips for any one is 1) to start the infection in either Greenland or Madagascar. 2) always try & infect every country & human before buying any symptoms because then they’ll start the cure. And once every human is infected if you have a decent amount of dna points then you want to buy the most symptoms you can particularly the more fatal ones to wipe out the humans before they develop a cure. But if you’re using parasite they’ll find out about the disease quite early despite not buying any symptoms and work towards a cure. At that point you should just still focus on spreading the virus by buying transmission and all the genetic reshuffles etc to slow down the cure & THEN once everyone has it then buy the fatal symptoms
Doesn’t work

by Sheilah Donnelly on 2021/01/09 04:08
I like playing the cure, but wish it had more specific instructions available. Also wish the game didn’t go at such a seemingly high speed. I’m just a slower, methodical thinker. Are there any dummy books for this game?
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.

Soooooooo yeah, I’m back. I was here about a year ago and gave this a 3 star and said that to do stuff in the game you have to pay in addition to the price of the game. I was wrong. You have to beat everything on normal and then the specials on brutal. My one concern is the shadow plague. Without the 3rd tier blood thing (the one that raises combat ability) you cannot fight ANYTHING. Even the labs will half kill you. Just saying that this might need a tiny redesign. Second, I cannot for the life of me (without cheats) complete Black Death (or whatever it’s called) scenario. I’ve tried with cheats to get the strat but seriously, without cheats it’s like trying to do shadow plague on mega brutal on first try. Either I don’t get something or I’m bad or it’s impossible. It’s most likely the first as I’ve completed everything on mega brutal except it. I also have a quick suggestion: multiplayer. You’ve already created both things for it: the cure mode and the plague mode. Have a multiplayer where one person tries to infect the world while the other person tries to stop them. Amazing game, keep it up
Great game overall

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.
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.
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 .
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
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!👍
Perfect
by Rogersfam16 on 2020/12/04 01:41
That’s all it is. It’s set up well, it fits in with what’s going on in 2020, and it shows people lots of countries, there statuses, why there at the status, and the add On’s, Oh My god the add ons. I am now addicted to the Necora Virus add on. And the fake news? I choose the purpose as “trolling” every time. I see the most recent complaints are about the newest update, cure mode. To all those people who think it’s a lie machine or whatever, then just don’t do that mode. It’s another reason why plague inc. is great! You can choose the infection mode or main mode instead. Stop being stubborn and focusing on ONE bad thing, and criticizing the whole game. Give it a lower review, sure, maybe a 3 star, but cure mode isn’t even the main mode to plague inc. if you don’t like it at all, why even bother to download it. Overall it’s the best game I have played in a while. Keep up the good work Ndemic Creations!
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?
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.
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.
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.
Very fun, but somewhat boring
by BuddiesiPhoneSE on 2020/12/17 05:59
My friend got me into this game when we were on vacation. This was last year in like June or July. I eventually got all the DLC packs but they didn’t save when I got a new device to play it on and that was sad. I love the cure mode, super fun but it’s rather easy. Normally on normal you just spam quarantine and economic easing, then cure and your good, might have to add some more but yeah. Cure is super fun, but I think it’s stupid if it becomes a DLC. What would be fun though is cure mode for DLCs, like curing zombies or vampires or apes. That would be fun... and the game can be completed f2p it’s just super hard. If you don’t have patience don’t play this game. This game is strategy and patience, like chess. Suddenly it’s check, and then two moves later you win from checkmate. You have to bide your time... the time speed up option is nice as well.
Good
by MusicLovestar67 on 2021/01/10 22:54
I too used to think this was too hard to beat but when I really thought about each microorganism & how they spread usually in real life I added it to this game. Also 2 biggest tips for any one is 1) to start the infection in either Greenland or Madagascar. 2) always try & infect every country & human before buying any symptoms because then they’ll start the cure. And once every human is infected if you have a decent amount of dna points then you want to buy the most symptoms you can particularly the more fatal ones to wipe out the humans before they develop a cure. But if you’re using parasite they’ll find out about the disease quite early despite not buying any symptoms and work towards a cure. At that point you should just still focus on spreading the virus by buying transmission and all the genetic reshuffles etc to slow down the cure & THEN once everyone has it then buy the fatal symptoms
New game mode isn’t explained well
by small hobbit on 2020/11/14 05:01
So they recently added a new game mode called “The Cure”. The problem is the tutorial for this new game mode doesn’t actually explain its new features all that well and pretty much PLAYS ITSELF which as both a gamer and somebody who learns better by doing than by being told, it’s more annoying than helpful. It also makes it confusing when going to play the mode because none of it comes off as all that well explained. What do any of these new things do? Why is authority important to cure disease? All it seems like is some arbitrary hp meter to give a game over. I get that this is a game, but in the updates (at least via steam; I also own a copy of the game on PC and this update isn’t on there yet) it sounded like this was going more realistic due to them working with real world organizations, but I guess not. In reality this stuff is handled differently by each country, which is hard to get across by game mechanics I guess 😕 I lost my past progress, anyway, since I deleted this version and it doesn’t seem to keep saves.
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!
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!
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!
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!
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.
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!
Great game
by bigtuna48 on 2020/12/22 07:23
Love the game, all the different scenarios are so entertaining! To get the extra things you will have to pay money unless you are some expert who can win on brutal mode, though it is definitely possible it takes awhile. Also note to editors, USA should have more then two docks/airports, it’s like the richest country in the world and has a huge population, and come on, Australia has three and Iceland has two. The vampire stage scenario is awesome and you can figure it out pretty quick, I wasted my free trial on the simian flu because I got super confused on whether or not I was supposed to help the gorillas or kill everyone. I like how this game is hard, but if you put a little time and effort into it you won’t have to cheat to win, I got to nano-virus like a day after buying it.
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!
Fun Game with a MAJOR issue
by 👁❤️😸 on 2021/02/27 04:40
This game is extremely fun. You get to play at your own pace and experience a fun time. But there are a few things that people may not like. Paying money to play. Having a ton on in app purchases. And the game being ‘hard.’ In reality, yes it’s hard but working at it will make it better. But now for the one issue that pisses me off the most. This game does not do what it says. I accidentally made a purchase to buy all the variants of diseases bacteria, virus, spore, etc. And I did some digging and found out how to restore the purchase. I followed the directions and found the ‘Restore Purchases’ button only to find that it doesn’t work. This game doesn’t allow you to restore a purchase. I didn’t play after I accidentally bought the pass. So I don’t know why it isn’t working. Please update this because that $2.99 could be spent somewhere better.
Gets Repitive
by Pastulu Casuaal on 2020/10/15 01:21
The game is fine, but it gets really repetitive, as you’ll mainly just go for the same strategies, and same difficulty(ies). If the game gets boring, then mix it up a little, I recommend playing in Mega Brutal, and you might be asking: “Woah! Why recommend the hardest difficulty?” Because as said literally 5 seconds ago, the game gets repetitive, even in Brutal. Playing in Mega Brutal gives you that adrenaline boost, the wave of relief when you finally beat a disease type despite potentially dozens upon dozens of attempts. Start off with Neurax Worm, (that is if you’ve unlocked all the disease types) and end off with Fungus. Aside from the constant COVID-19 jokes it’s an okay plague simulator. What I wanna know is why there isn’t multiplayer in neither Mobile, PS4, Xbox, or the Switch ports, it’s PC only, and there’s only Custom Scenarios.. strange, don’t you think?
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.
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.
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.
The cheats.
by kurglit on 2020/11/10 18:48
So the game is really good but the cheats are SO hard to get. I’m still trying to beat casual mode. So here is what I think you should do: add cheats for free in the build your own Sanrio game. BUT for the gold ones you need to win three games on MEGA BLUTEL (I spelled that part wrong:( ) also in the build your own Sanrio game. Also that DNA thing before you start a game. Well you all of the germ type. (Ex: if you won as a virus. You would get all of the viruses DNA things.) BUT it has to be normal or higher. No not casual, NORMAL (or higher.) also add a delete all button for the government commands. Other than that it is a good game. Also maybe do the same if you add make your own cure Sanrio. Anyways if you do what I told you then I will write another review about the new version that I want. Bye! :)
The #1 OG game
by freshadvocado on 2020/11/14 18:03
This is the best game the two dollars are WORTH IT. I love the new feature of being the one to stop the plague it’s really cool. It would also be cool if the devs could make a multiplayer where one person would be the plague and another would be the cure if you guys can do that it would be 110% more perfect. I haven’t played the game in a long time but when I saw the new thumbnail for the game I was interested. And now I’m starting to play again. I’ve unlocked all plagues but I can’t complete the bio weapon, it’s hard but not impossible, keep up the work devs your games are awesome 🔥👍😎👌. I’ve yet to get the rebel inc. but I’ll try to get it, it looks cool so maybe in the future. 🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥
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.
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.
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.
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.

Awesome Game
by jeennenddndjjdndbdk on 2021/03/03 16:39
Ok I’ve been playing this game for a while now and it has been so much fun. I think the new cure mode good to I really like the charts they show explaining if the virus is increasing or decreasing in a region I was just wondering if you can put the charts in the normal mode too. I think that would be awesome.

The game has a learning curve, but once you get the hang it’s awesome. No ads what so ever, you can progress your way through unlocking all types of disease. The expansion packs are very reasonably priced. 10/10 recommend!

Fun Game with a MAJOR issue
by 👁❤️😸 on 2021/02/27 04:40
This game is extremely fun. You get to play at your own pace and experience a fun time. But there are a few things that people may not like. Paying money to play. Having a ton on in app purchases. And the game being ‘hard.’ In reality, yes it’s hard but working at it will make it better. But now for the one issue that pisses me off the most. This game does not do what it says. I accidentally made a purchase to buy all the variants of diseases bacteria, virus, spore, etc. And I did some digging and found out how to restore the purchase. I followed the directions and found the ‘Restore Purchases’ button only to find that it doesn’t work. This game doesn’t allow you to restore a purchase. I didn’t play after I accidentally bought the pass. So I don’t know why it isn’t working. Please update this because that $2.99 could be spent somewhere better.
Muy espectacular esta app

Good game but not perfect

Great game
by LisaG702 on 2021/02/13 18:36
I love this game! Honestly, this is a perfect balance between hardness and being able to beat it. You know it’s possible and then that one game when you beat it you are so happy. I play this game daily!
DNA points
by Gaming_Noob on 2021/02/13 16:57

Please read! 😄
by King_Penguin. on 2021/02/11 20:33
All of the 1 star reviews you see are one of three, Their Phone/Tablet is broken, They are a Karen or a small child that thinks this game started COVID-19 or, they are bad at the game, and say it’s pay to win (which it’s not). So please don’t listen to those reviews! 👍🏻 Thanks for your time, King_Penguin (An 11 Y/O child). 😃

Why does the game keep breaking

How come countries with no cure are able to not get infected??? The scripting is terrible, why no talent?
I’m good at the game but needs like a picture for iPad

Insane virus and bacteria in your game where you try to infect the whole entire world I try to get the disease away from the world but sometimes 668 sometimes I fail but it’s real life on the game is just so amazing I love it but it just makes the game a whole bunch more fun that it’s actually a game that’s pretty much virus and bacteria I named my virus COVID-19 which is actually a real virus in the world
DNA points
by gheicudnw on 2021/02/06 19:38
This game is so fun and amazing and definitely makes you think. The only problem is the lack of DNA points you get once the cure starts happening. I went from having 70 to 0 because I used it on cure prevention. That did close to nothing to help stopping that. And once the cure starts and the people start passing, you get no DNA points from the people dying.
New cure mode
by Topher Lilly on 2021/02/06 19:05
I love the new cure mode, it adds so much to the game. I think one thing they could do is add a multiplayer function, where one of your friends is the infection and you are the cure, see who wins!
Progressive

I would like to thank this game for setting a great example for humanity and where to focus our energies (destroying the planet) I’d like to thank apple and the App Store too. Genuinely, genius people.

by sillysuperfish48 on 2021/02/05 19:37

We’re All In a Giant Plague Experiment. Genius!!
by Nickky19 on 2021/02/04 14:13
The parallels between this game and our current reality is just crazy. Plain crazy. I remember playing this game almost 10 years ago. Never thought this would actually happen in real life.
Dangerously fun
by ryan4563 on 2021/02/03 22:58
Beating everything on mega brutal I have a good feel of the game. This game is difficult and has a risk vs reward feel to it two things please change bio-weapon cure mode I have won 2 times on mega brutal AND IT IS PAIN. Secondly add cure mode scenarios like poor country’s are more vulnerable to disease giving panic, or people don’t care as much about a cure. Thanks for reading and feel free adding anything I mentioned above.

The game teaches you about parasites and other things! Also it’s very kid friendly! They donated $250,000 to the W.H.O.You should get this game to learn, and help good causes happen from buying the game.

The Best Infection Game Ever!
by DE1014 on 2021/02/02 16:22
This Game Is The Best Infection Game! There’s No Ads, Like Imagine Being In A Non-Skipable Ad For 30 Seconds, That Will Cause It To Be A 2 Star Game! Cheats Are Very Fun, That’s Because It’s Like A Sandbox But With Cheats On, There Needs To Be A Sandbox Mode For The Rookies! Making Scenarios Is A Great Creativity Level! Tho It’s In separate Apps. It’s Still A Great Creativity Level! Thank You For Creating This Game!
Totally worth it
by Pink Sebra on 2021/01/30 00:23
Im tryna write this before my phone dies- anyway, this game is awesome and its super fun! Im the kind of person who’s disease is named Covid 😏 and Im currently trying to beat everything on Brutal. Ive already beat the bio weapon and the virus and its so fun i- just get it. You will not be dissapointed. One thing i would like to see added is some kind of minigame you can do once everyone’s infected where you can get bonus DNA points so the game’s not over as soon as you run out and everyone’s been infected but the cures almost ready. That could be fun but idk.
Very realistic
by PushMyDaisy on 2021/01/29 16:32
Very realistic. Almost too realistic. I started a game with a virus named COVID and now it’s everywhere. Literally. Like, I actually want the cure for it at this point, but the game kinda took on a life of its own and it began fighting back by mutating on it’s own. Not sure if it’s a bug or a feature. Either way, great game.
Awesome game

The cure mode fungus normal mode
by Magine this text on 2021/01/29 01:36
So the cure mode is a really good mode and I’m on fungus because I cannot be normal mode for it because it seems to be bugged out or just on a harder difficulty like mega or just regular brutal so can you fix the difficulty because the normal mode on cure is very hard because of the riots and the panic and your health goes down very fast so can you fix the difficulty
Love the game
by KingNeriss on 2021/01/28 15:15
Been playing for a couple years now, and it’s still fresh and super fun! Difficulty feels balanced and the gameplay is solid but addictive. No complaints other than two bugs; when I play the Christmas scenario it calls the DNA “Authority” like the Cure Mode, and no matter how well I do in the Board Games, I never get a score. Otherwise, masterpiece!

You shouldn't have to pay for something and not even get everything in the game. Ok f you ask me, that's kind of ridiculous.
Not that hard
by DeStrati on 2021/01/20 03:28
The number one complaint seems to be that the game is too difficult, but as someone who has been playing for not too long, the game is not as hard as people say, it is tricky on the normal difficulty, and extremely hard on the max difficulty but that’s the intent, the people who act like easy mode is the only possible way to win are just terrible at the game.
Plague ic evolved
by jfjfhfbrhdhfbf on 2021/01/20 03:16
This game is fun really fun helps with a lot of things but the only thing is is that the cure goes on its own and no way of stopping that so 3 stars for this game just fix the bug!

Plague, Inc. is a genius game made by a bunch on geniuses. You legit get to kill every one on earth, which is pretty fun (when implemented into a game...). I feel that all of the in-app purchases are completely necessary, as the Plague, Inc. Team has put hours of hard work into the game. Peace out my men 😭😭😷😷🦠🦠🦠🦠

by quadonkdonk on 2021/01/14 04:00
Greenland has 6 airports and on plague inc there is only the sea port. I feel like I get cheated out of harder games when the country is able to close off everything in one place. Sure it’s part of the game and sure it makes the game harder but there are other ways to make the game harder. You did it with cure mode after all. That is IMPOSSIBLE! And I loved it! I hope if you survey, that this would show popularity as an idea. Love, Penny Sylvia.
Highly recommended!!!

Necroa Virus Post Cure Update
by Cowlv on 2021/01/11 23:09
I had purchased this game years ago and the necroa virus expansion. Ever since this Cure Update I haven’t been able to open this virus even though in the app is still shows that I’ve beaten the game with this disease. And it shows that I own it in the App Store. If I could either have a refund on the I think two dollars, or preferably get access to what I already purchased. I would have given a 5 star with out this issue because besides this one hiccup it is an extremely fun, dynamic game.
Nice work

by MusicLovestar67 on 2021/01/10 22:54
I too used to think this was too hard to beat but when I really thought about each microorganism & how they spread usually in real life I added it to this game. Also 2 biggest tips for any one is 1) to start the infection in either Greenland or Madagascar. 2) always try & infect every country & human before buying any symptoms because then they’ll start the cure. And once every human is infected if you have a decent amount of dna points then you want to buy the most symptoms you can particularly the more fatal ones to wipe out the humans before they develop a cure. But if you’re using parasite they’ll find out about the disease quite early despite not buying any symptoms and work towards a cure. At that point you should just still focus on spreading the virus by buying transmission and all the genetic reshuffles etc to slow down the cure & THEN once everyone has it then buy the fatal symptoms

I like playing the cure, but wish it had more specific instructions available. Also wish the game didn’t go at such a seemingly high speed. I’m just a slower, methodical thinker. Are there any dummy books for this game?
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.
Relieving
by An21rew on 2020/12/16 01:40
Soooooooo yeah, I’m back. I was here about a year ago and gave this a 3 star and said that to do stuff in the game you have to pay in addition to the price of the game. I was wrong. You have to beat everything on normal and then the specials on brutal. My one concern is the shadow plague. Without the 3rd tier blood thing (the one that raises combat ability) you cannot fight ANYTHING. Even the labs will half kill you. Just saying that this might need a tiny redesign. Second, I cannot for the life of me (without cheats) complete Black Death (or whatever it’s called) scenario. I’ve tried with cheats to get the strat but seriously, without cheats it’s like trying to do shadow plague on mega brutal on first try. Either I don’t get something or I’m bad or it’s impossible. It’s most likely the first as I’ve completed everything on mega brutal except it. I also have a quick suggestion: multiplayer. You’ve already created both things for it: the cure mode and the plague mode. Have a multiplayer where one person tries to infect the world while the other person tries to stop them. Amazing game, keep it 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.
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.
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.
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 .
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
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!👍
Perfect
by Rogersfam16 on 2020/12/04 01:41
That’s all it is. It’s set up well, it fits in with what’s going on in 2020, and it shows people lots of countries, there statuses, why there at the status, and the add On’s, Oh My god the add ons. I am now addicted to the Necora Virus add on. And the fake news? I choose the purpose as “trolling” every time. I see the most recent complaints are about the newest update, cure mode. To all those people who think it’s a lie machine or whatever, then just don’t do that mode. It’s another reason why plague inc. is great! You can choose the infection mode or main mode instead. Stop being stubborn and focusing on ONE bad thing, and criticizing the whole game. Give it a lower review, sure, maybe a 3 star, but cure mode isn’t even the main mode to plague inc. if you don’t like it at all, why even bother to download it. Overall it’s the best game I have played in a while. Keep up the good work Ndemic Creations!
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?
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.
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.
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.
Very fun, but somewhat boring
by BuddiesiPhoneSE on 2020/12/17 05:59
My friend got me into this game when we were on vacation. This was last year in like June or July. I eventually got all the DLC packs but they didn’t save when I got a new device to play it on and that was sad. I love the cure mode, super fun but it’s rather easy. Normally on normal you just spam quarantine and economic easing, then cure and your good, might have to add some more but yeah. Cure is super fun, but I think it’s stupid if it becomes a DLC. What would be fun though is cure mode for DLCs, like curing zombies or vampires or apes. That would be fun... and the game can be completed f2p it’s just super hard. If you don’t have patience don’t play this game. This game is strategy and patience, like chess. Suddenly it’s check, and then two moves later you win from checkmate. You have to bide your time... the time speed up option is nice as well.
Good
by MusicLovestar67 on 2021/01/10 22:54
I too used to think this was too hard to beat but when I really thought about each microorganism & how they spread usually in real life I added it to this game. Also 2 biggest tips for any one is 1) to start the infection in either Greenland or Madagascar. 2) always try & infect every country & human before buying any symptoms because then they’ll start the cure. And once every human is infected if you have a decent amount of dna points then you want to buy the most symptoms you can particularly the more fatal ones to wipe out the humans before they develop a cure. But if you’re using parasite they’ll find out about the disease quite early despite not buying any symptoms and work towards a cure. At that point you should just still focus on spreading the virus by buying transmission and all the genetic reshuffles etc to slow down the cure & THEN once everyone has it then buy the fatal symptoms
New game mode isn’t explained well
by small hobbit on 2020/11/14 05:01
So they recently added a new game mode called “The Cure”. The problem is the tutorial for this new game mode doesn’t actually explain its new features all that well and pretty much PLAYS ITSELF which as both a gamer and somebody who learns better by doing than by being told, it’s more annoying than helpful. It also makes it confusing when going to play the mode because none of it comes off as all that well explained. What do any of these new things do? Why is authority important to cure disease? All it seems like is some arbitrary hp meter to give a game over. I get that this is a game, but in the updates (at least via steam; I also own a copy of the game on PC and this update isn’t on there yet) it sounded like this was going more realistic due to them working with real world organizations, but I guess not. In reality this stuff is handled differently by each country, which is hard to get across by game mechanics I guess 😕 I lost my past progress, anyway, since I deleted this version and it doesn’t seem to keep saves.
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!
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!
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!
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!
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.
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!
Great game
by bigtuna48 on 2020/12/22 07:23
Love the game, all the different scenarios are so entertaining! To get the extra things you will have to pay money unless you are some expert who can win on brutal mode, though it is definitely possible it takes awhile. Also note to editors, USA should have more then two docks/airports, it’s like the richest country in the world and has a huge population, and come on, Australia has three and Iceland has two. The vampire stage scenario is awesome and you can figure it out pretty quick, I wasted my free trial on the simian flu because I got super confused on whether or not I was supposed to help the gorillas or kill everyone. I like how this game is hard, but if you put a little time and effort into it you won’t have to cheat to win, I got to nano-virus like a day after buying it.
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!
Fun Game with a MAJOR issue
by 👁❤️😸 on 2021/02/27 04:40
This game is extremely fun. You get to play at your own pace and experience a fun time. But there are a few things that people may not like. Paying money to play. Having a ton on in app purchases. And the game being ‘hard.’ In reality, yes it’s hard but working at it will make it better. But now for the one issue that pisses me off the most. This game does not do what it says. I accidentally made a purchase to buy all the variants of diseases bacteria, virus, spore, etc. And I did some digging and found out how to restore the purchase. I followed the directions and found the ‘Restore Purchases’ button only to find that it doesn’t work. This game doesn’t allow you to restore a purchase. I didn’t play after I accidentally bought the pass. So I don’t know why it isn’t working. Please update this because that $2.99 could be spent somewhere better.
Gets Repitive
by Pastulu Casuaal on 2020/10/15 01:21
The game is fine, but it gets really repetitive, as you’ll mainly just go for the same strategies, and same difficulty(ies). If the game gets boring, then mix it up a little, I recommend playing in Mega Brutal, and you might be asking: “Woah! Why recommend the hardest difficulty?” Because as said literally 5 seconds ago, the game gets repetitive, even in Brutal. Playing in Mega Brutal gives you that adrenaline boost, the wave of relief when you finally beat a disease type despite potentially dozens upon dozens of attempts. Start off with Neurax Worm, (that is if you’ve unlocked all the disease types) and end off with Fungus. Aside from the constant COVID-19 jokes it’s an okay plague simulator. What I wanna know is why there isn’t multiplayer in neither Mobile, PS4, Xbox, or the Switch ports, it’s PC only, and there’s only Custom Scenarios.. strange, don’t you think?
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.
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.
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.
The cheats.
by kurglit on 2020/11/10 18:48
So the game is really good but the cheats are SO hard to get. I’m still trying to beat casual mode. So here is what I think you should do: add cheats for free in the build your own Sanrio game. BUT for the gold ones you need to win three games on MEGA BLUTEL (I spelled that part wrong:( ) also in the build your own Sanrio game. Also that DNA thing before you start a game. Well you all of the germ type. (Ex: if you won as a virus. You would get all of the viruses DNA things.) BUT it has to be normal or higher. No not casual, NORMAL (or higher.) also add a delete all button for the government commands. Other than that it is a good game. Also maybe do the same if you add make your own cure Sanrio. Anyways if you do what I told you then I will write another review about the new version that I want. Bye! :)
The #1 OG game
by freshadvocado on 2020/11/14 18:03
This is the best game the two dollars are WORTH IT. I love the new feature of being the one to stop the plague it’s really cool. It would also be cool if the devs could make a multiplayer where one person would be the plague and another would be the cure if you guys can do that it would be 110% more perfect. I haven’t played the game in a long time but when I saw the new thumbnail for the game I was interested. And now I’m starting to play again. I’ve unlocked all plagues but I can’t complete the bio weapon, it’s hard but not impossible, keep up the work devs your games are awesome 🔥👍😎👌. I’ve yet to get the rebel inc. but I’ll try to get it, it looks cool so maybe in the future. 🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥
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.
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.
Cool

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.
Fun game, some issues.

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.
