Best Game in the App Store!

I love this game so much! It has stayed on my phone the longest out of all of my apps because it's just so great! Perfect amount of difficulty so it is exciting and doesn't get boring, and is still challenging to win! I have no complaints about this app but if I were to make a suggestion I would say that it would be super cool to be able to play online as well, and go against other players! For example you could choose to be either the disease or the cure and you'd verse other people who chose the opposite! Playing as the disease would be similar to the regular game but playing as the cure would look different as instead of symptoms and stuff you'd have abilities to make the cure stronger, and stuff like that! Overall the best game I've ever played on my phone!

The best game ever to me

IMO, this game is one of the most under-rated games of all time. Even though it got the best strategy games of 2014, the game came out in 2012 and I started playing since the beginning of 2013 and have not really stopped playing it. I love the games great sense of creativity. I love that the games amazing idea of killing the worlds population with viruses is genius! The game is really fun to play and has so many fun tactics, the games creator is really putting in lot of effort to make this game the best it can be and I personally think that this game should be released on steam. The games graphics and design is new to me and is really good with making these types of games. And I really hope that the games developer makes more awesome games in the future.

Thank You Ndemic Creations

Future update ideas

Iv had this game since the first week it came out and loved it since. I have all the expansion packs and here are some of my ideas for the future.

1. It would be cool to play in a different time. I would like to see what it would be like to infect the medieval world or futuristic world and see how they would react, maybe even back with dinosaurs before the continents broke away, and humans still lived in caves.

2. Also i would like to play as the world fighting against a disease for a change. And see if I can stop a plague.

3. I would also like to be able to pick multiple of the scenarios and play them together, eg. Black Death with artificial organs.

Any of these or all of them in future updates would be sick, and I would definitely continue buying them. This has to be the best iPhone game out there.
