Ratings and Reviews
Ready for something a bit different? Plague Inc. challenges you to strategically spread and evolve diseases. While the concept isn't exactly honorable, the surprising ways all these novel gameplay systems interact make this twist on traditional heroism a lot of fun — even though it shouldn’t be.
Fabulous, and a Huge Bang For Your Buck
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
