Stuck in update limbo...

I got this game around three years ago, and within a few months I'd bought all available IAP's - hoping it would continue to be as fun and addicting as it had proven to be. I really liked the Neurax Worm, I LOVED the Necroa Virus, and the Simian Flu has so much replay appeal. BUT WE'RE IN UPDATE LIMBO NOW. It's been, I don't even know how long, since I've cared about an update. Scenarios? They got too boring, too fast. Custom scenarios? Not enough detail and customization behind them, so they're all still kind of sloppy - I even bought the (8 save slots, unlimited daily downloads) IAP and all the ones I've played have potential if only there was more customization in the details. Where are the new viruses? New transmission types? I've been seeing this "Coming Very Soon" for a very long time now. I was so excited at first because I have a guess as to what it will be (it's kind of obvious but I don't want to ruin it for those who don't), but I'm starting to doubt it'll be worth this long of a wait. If the next update doesn't include the new "coming very soon" virus, I'm going to delete this app until at least a few new ones are added. Wasn't a total waste of money, but I am disappointed.

I caught my own disease

After playing the game f r a couple days I realized I had some of the symptoms of my custom disease. I check with my family and friends and they were feeling the same. It was at this point when I realized the game had come to life. I saw people dropping like flys in the streets and resurrecting as zombies. So I ran and joined a group of survivors. As the world fell into chaos and governments collapsed, we traveled north as the zombies would freeze in the cold, when we set up camp in Wisconsin we were attacked in the night by bandits and the noise lured a herd of zombies to us. I was the last survivor of this ordeal and I ran. A couple days later I started getting sicker and came to the conclusion that I would not last much longer, so I tied myself to a fence and slowly died. I'm a zombie now and it's not as bad as I though, I mean food is scarce and I'm not very good looking, but all in all being a zombie is pretty fun. Thank you plague inc.
10/10 would die again

Nice game: Not too hard not too easy

Admittedly, this game beat me about 12 times in a row on the easiest level until I got the hang of it (need to look at the stats to ensure that you infect the whole world before boarders closes and keep the infectivity lower than the death rate in the early and mid-game.) The challenge was refreshing and now I am hooked.

There is a good amount of realism added to the game that makes it complex and fun to play. The different levels, scenarios and the ability to modify the genome keep the game interesting. I ended up unlocking them all by paying for it but you can unlock most of the content by just playing the game.

Overall, hours of fun trying to kill off all of humanity!
