*How to play
In Pandemic: The Board Game each player has a unique role with different abilities. On a turn, players will have four actions in order to cure diseases and save the world. They can remove disease cubes from the board; fly to a city in need; trade cards with fellow players; and much more.
At the end of every player’s turn, new cities are infected with disease cubes and Epidemics may arise. You must fight to prevent the outbreaks before they spin out of control.
In Pandemic: The Board Game, there is only one way to win: cure all four diseases before you run out of time!

What's New in Version 1.0.8
Now available in French and German!
Waaay too many outbreaks
The graphics are great, the music creepy enough, and sound effects keep you engaged. What ruins the fun for me, however, is that the Outbreaks come way too often. Having played the board game version for years, honestly, I think I have won 'once' in playing the iPad version at least 50 times... and this is still on the Introductory level. Whether it's after an Epidemic or a previously Stage-3 city, the card shuffling algorithm seems to overwhelmingly preferentially choose the Stage-3 cities again and again for the subsequent Infections before you even have an opportunity to get there. This results in so many Outbreaks and Chain Reactions that the game is virtually un-winnable, in my opinion. Hopefully, the developers are listening and will look into a change in this; but I've gotten frustrated so many times now that I'm no longer interested in trying anymore. It's a shame because the game is really beautiful and certainly one the best otherwise.
Great - as expected
It looks really good - just like the board game. Although that makes it a little hard to play on the phone, it's to be expected for a game this complicated. Game play is swift. A game seldom takes over 30 minutes.
Game appears to be a huge battery hog. Even when connected to charger, the device maintains the exact battery charge, or continues to drop if app is in use. App also crashes every time the battery level notification comes up. One good benefit is it saves your game to resume after a crash. Otherwise love this game!
