Customer Reviews

Really really good way to waste time

Possibly one of he best investments in the app market, with a lot of replay value and different strategies available.
A lot of reviews suggest that you have to buy extra content, you don't, completing a scenario or plague on brutal unlocks the next plague and so on, it's what makes the game fun.
Some reviews also suggest that there are glitches that prevent you from winning (e.g. Infecting everyone means no more DNA) also not true, your income slows down when you've infected everyone, doesn't mean you don't have an income.
Also, if you have gotten to the point where everyone is infected and have been using your points efficiently you should win, it's not a glitch, it's a challenge.

Good game but needs a DNA point fix on virus level and a cure rate fix

I've bough the game because I played the free version before and liked the game the only problem is the virus level is a little bit annoying as you get everyone infected then start killing them off quickly but I never seem to be able to get any DNA points for killing people it gets to 1 billion and the cure is done no matter what without I just never get DNA and the cure goes up way to Quickly you pay 100 odd DNA point for the cure to shoot to very quickly everything thing else is fine but there need to be a certain fix the DNA system e.g. Every half million people you get DNA, this is the only problem with game as I am stuck in the virus level

Too many IAPs..

I love this game, and play it all the time. I bought the pack which gives you all disease types, including the bonus and future ones, and the scenarios, and now I've been playing some of the Custom Scenarios, which are lots of fun, except for one thing. The fact that you have limited downloads and save slots annoys me, because other games do level downloading fine, without charging you extra, and I would have thought that the pack I bought would give me those as well, but no. All in all, a great game but with too many IAPs for a paid game.
