App review

To play this game (CDC), you have to become a detective. There are stages on different games. There are about 8 questions or so on one stage. To clear the stage, you have to pick the right answer from 3 answers. There are clues to answer the questions, usually 2 paragraphs. You read the paragraphs carefully to solve problems.

Before I played the game, I didn't really feel how serious the diseases are. But by playing this games, I knew right away that diseases can be caused by many things, and are spreadable so easily, it could be hard to stop it. After I played this game, I was able to know that traveling is the problem to most of the diseases. If no one would have traveled, the disease wouldn't spread. Due to one person, all people could get infected,

I liked how I was able to restart the game if I wanted to. The first time I played, I got a lot of them wrong, but was able to restart it and get them all correct. Something that was unique to me was how it had a lot of writing. Other games mostly doesn't have writings. Even though I liked it, it may be better if they haven pictures that would help us figure out the problem rather than huge amounts of paragraphs.

I would really recommend every one to read the passage very carefully. It is challenging when people don't read it carefully, and that's what happened to me. It may be better if people read it out loud because the game connects back to some of the past passages.

Really cool game

CDC Solve the Outbreak is a good game that guides you into how to solve disease cases. There are missions that you have to complete and in every mission, there is a few questions and clues. Based on the clues you have to answer those questions. If you answer one correctly, you get points. If you answer it wrong, nothing happens. There are also two chapters one with harder cases, and one is easier. Even though I am still on the easy one, there are still some hard questions that you need to answer. This is a really cool game that teaches you a lot and I enjoyed playing it.
I recommend this game to anyone who wants to become a detective or likes to solve questions that needs a lot of complex thinking.

Interesting, Informative, and Fun. Good app.

I liked it. It was informative, it had a lot of interesting content, and it is free without those in app purchases I'm getting sick of.

It's one of the few apps I have no regrets about getting. I would recommend it to people interested in how disease control ACTUALLY works.
