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.
Love destroying humanity
I love this game and its really fun to make α disease and kill everyone but I'm confused on why make the scenario creator α different app, why not make it an in game purchase and have a section for itself in the main game. I don't like how some of these diseases are too hard, especially nano-virus i think it's way too hard, I can beat other ones on brutal and sometimes mega brutal but i cant seem to beat nano-virus on normal, please make it easier. Now onto the cheats, i understand that you need to beat the game on the hardest difficulty but what i don’t understand is how you can get extremely op cheats by beating the game on the second hardest difficulty which is brutal and the cheats you get from those are more op than the cheats you get from beating the entire game on mega brutal, it makes no sense. On to the pre made scenarios. I don’t get how you need to pay for some of the scenarios you should make it so you can unlock them. Special diseases. I really like how you made a special disease for α movie and all the rest are amazing, this game is overall amazing.
