Your mission, if you choose to accept, is to get clues and analyze data to solve the outbreak and save lives! In this fun app, you get to be a Disease Detective.

Do you quarantine the village? Interview people who are sick? Run more lab tests? The better your answers, the higher your score - and the quicker you’ll climb the ranks to become a decorated Disease Detective. In level 1, you’ll start as a Trainee and earn badges by solving scenarios — with the goal of earning the top rank: Disease Detective.

Unlock Level 2 by mastering all the 12 outbreaks of Level 1. Then earn honors by solving new and more challenging scenarios. Earn recognitions like Surveillance and Treatment Honors.

New outbreaks happen every day and CDC's Disease Detectives are on the front lines — working 24/7 to save lives and protect people. When a new outbreak occurs, Disease Detectives are sent in to figure out how the outbreak started before it spreads further.

In this app, you'll also:
• Learn about diseases and outbreaks in an engaging way.
• See how CDC's Disease Detectives save lives around the world.
• Have the option to post your scores on Facebook or Twitter and challenge your friends to play!

Already completed the game in a day

It is a really great game I finished it in a day and I am only 10 years old please add more levels and some special outbreaks. Please I am taking human anatomy and my mom likes finding reviews for me I would really love more levels.

Great game.

This game is a great way to learn. It forces you to solve problems using schema and knowledge given to you, great for people who like logic puzzles. It simultaneously manages to be fun, and tell a good story. I would say that you wouldn’t need an iron plated stomach to enjoy. Though this game is a great time passer, there’s one thing that keeps it from getting a true 5 star. The replay-ability factor is very low, due to it being a puzzle game. When you finish both Level 1 and 2, you’re pretty much done with the app, unless you want to show it to a friend or try and solve the puzzles again. Honestly, good for puzzle lovers, but barely replayable. The only reason you would play it again is to get a good score. But this game is satisfactory, and as so, I give it a 4/5.

I thought being a detective would be boring! This app is very interactive and is very helpful! Once you start, you can't stop!
I hope you keep adding more outbreaks!
This is really a great learning tool!
