The infection has begun and it’s up to you to strategically spread and evolve a deadly plague to bring about the end of the human race. Saving the world and being a hero is honourable, but decimating the world with a deadly infection is a whole lot of fun — even though it shouldn’t be.

!!!!!!!!!!Hi?????????? ,

Super Spiel, endlich mal KEIN Pay2Win

Mir macht das Spiel sehr viel Spaß, vor allem, weil es so herausfordernd ist. Im Gegensatz zur Auffassung einiger anderer Rezensenten ist es KEIN Pay2Win. Man kann zwar mit In-App-Käufen Inhalte freischalten, aber dadurch wird das Spiel keinesfalls einfacher, sondern eher umgekehrt. Außerdem kann man bis auf die Szenarien ALLES ohne Geld freischalten. Um eine Normale Seuche freizuschalten muss man nur die Vorangegangene in Normal schaffen und um eine Spezialseuche freizuschalten, muss man alle Vorangegangenen Seuchen auf Brutal schaffen. Dies ist auch definitiv schaffbar (Ich hab alle bis zur Affenseuche ohne In-App-Käufe).
Plague Inc. ist ein gutes und herausforderndes Strategiespiel und definitiv kein Pay2Win. Es fordert aber bei einigen Leveln ziemlich viel Gedult.
Alles in allem ist es eines meiner Lieblingsspiele und hat meines Erachtens nach fünf Sterne ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ verdient, weiter so!

irgendeinverdammterkurzname ,

Eines der unterhaltsamsten Spiele überhaupt!

Plague Inc. bietet eine Komplexität im Spiel, die durch eine intuitive Bedienung beherrschbar bleibt. Gut für Zugfahrten etc. Ein Kritikpunkt: es ist keine Übertragung des Spielstandes auf andere Geräte möglich. Dieses Problem könnte der Hersteller mittels Back-up-Funktion auf der iCloud lösen. Schade, trotzdem fünf Sterne:)
