Ratings and Reviews
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.
Well worth the money
This game is one of the best I've ever put on my phone. It doesn't require an internet connection (very convenient) and gets me hooked on gameplay for hours on end. Its shady background music and graphics fully immerse you in the eerie delight of wiping out the human race. Frankly, I'm sure no other game would make you want to kill people more than this one.
Although quite hard to win (I've only won once on Casual so far) it really makes you think about how to go about doing it, instead of making it too easy so just about anyone can beat it - I've even written down a plan to beat the game with Bacteria (I don't know if it will work yet, but only time will tell). It also makes you realise that if a human could control a disease, it would be our downfall.
Overall, Plague Inc. is an extremely entertaining and accurate, in a kind of morbid way. All for less than the cost of a song. Well worth the money, in my opinion.
Can’t infect two countries
Well the game overall is absolutely amazing. I have loved playing the game and watching others playing it but I have encountered a problem. Every time I play I have noticed that the Philippines are always the last country to infect which is followed closely by Greenland. Whenever I do a challenge or fungus it won’t infect Greenland or the Philippines. I was wondering if I could have some advice on how to infect the Philippines and Greenland faster as cold and heat resistance don’t seem to do anything. I am beginning to think it could be a bug but I don’t think so. The situations I am talking about was where I was playing on casual. So I don’t think it has anything to do with difficulty stuff. Maybe you could make the Philippines and Greenland easier to infect. Also the cheats only seem to come in one big pack that costs £10. Could they perhaps be purchased individually in the next update. I do think that the game is very good but I was hoping Greenland and Philippines were easier maybe. You can leave out the whole buying cheats individually thing if you wish. But please maybe make Greenland easier at the very least. I just wanted to say what was on my mind.
