This game is so annoying

This is what keeps happening to me. I start the game up, and literally 5 minutes in (as I'm trying to spread my virus, not kill everyone just as I'm only leaving the first country) it tells me "you have evolved rash without any DNA
Points!" And it always screws me over and gets me found out, because when you try to remove it, it makes you pay to get rid of it, so the game is penalizing you for trying to remove something it gave you, and worst of all it costs more as you go on, so instead of buying things to evolve, you're always spending money getting rid of stuff you don't want, then you get no more points, the thing you don't want stays, and you get annihilated because you can't buy anything, it's so annoying, but yet i don't want to remove it because its so addicting, and so fun, and so amazing in every way except for that

This game is immaculate

Plague inc has to be one of the best games I have ever played on the App Store, hours and hours of strategic fun and challenging puzzles with beautiful graphics and attention to detail rarely seen in other games. Even though there are some locked prices of content e.g the neural worm, cheats and the necroa virus you can still unlock them by completing all infection types on brutal which makes you work for those bonuses or you can pay for them with a handy option. Easily the best pound I had ever spent with an app that keeps on giving, kudos to you Ndemic studios.

The Neurax worm is controlling me!!

Obviously there must be some sort of magic or hypnosis in this game, because there's no way it can be this amazing!!
I've had it for about two years now. I got it in IPad, bought everything, and then my IPad broke.
But I love this game enough to buy everything again on PC and IPhone!
This has to be my all time favourite game!
But please can you add in an auto save option??
So we can pick when we want it to auto save, like every 5 minutes or 10 or 20 minutes!
I have been in the situation ,more than I can count, where I'll be so close to destroying the world!
Then my phone dies......
And for the Necroa virus can you maybe add a special cheat where everyone is already infected and they turn into a zombie when the die no matter what!
This way it's more fun and more like a Walking Dead type feel, which everyone loves!
Sorry for the bad grammar and punctuation!
