Absolutely love this game!

This game is so awesome! Very good strategy also. If you don't know how to beat it, here's a strategy. First of all, find the country that id the hardest for you destroy, and start your plague there. Evolve both types of weather and medical resistance . Then ONLY evolve transmissions. Once either all the countries have been infected or the cure is half done (whichever one comes first) start evolving symptoms. However do not evolve the more agressive symptoms until all of the people in the world are infected. Enjoy!

Lamer than your thoughts

Honestly not too bad a game overall. Hence the 2 stars, but come on... If I waste 5 bucks on the cheats.. They better actually work! That's so dumb that I wasted 5 bucks a while ago on those cheats and thought this update would fix it- nope. What I mean is I bought them so I wouldn't have to actually try to beat the game... Instead turns out they're just different "modes" of play and don't cheat in any way. Lol the score doesn't even count. At least make it so I can cheat through the different disease types (still stuck on virus... Yeah I'm not very good that's why I bought the friggin cheats). So that's my unhappiness, make it so the cheats at least unlock the disease types then ill be happy.

Game-breaking Bug

Today, I saw that Plague Inc. was updated to the newest version. I tried to launch a game of the "Frozen Virus" scenario. The app crashes. As I say to myself, "Okay, that was most likely just a one-time thing," I reopen the app. I try to launch a game of Bacteria with Unlimited DNA and no cure cheats activated. The app crashes. Annoyed, I do an experiment: I launched a game, completely bereft of features. Bacteria, Normal, no cheats, no genetic modification. I launch- and the app crashes.

I cannot get a single game to work. While Plague Inc. is a truly fantastic game, you cannot play it in this new update.
Fix this, Ndemic. Now.
