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.

I played the board game once and enjoyed it enough to consider this but waited for a sale since wasn't sure. When it went on sale for $5 I still hesitated researching this for nearly 3 days before pulling the trigger.
I've played 100s of apps and spent over $100 dollars. And I must say I'm really impressed from the presentation to the music to being able to minimize screen menus. Its just a very quality game.
A lot of thought went into the presentation. Compared with other apps this just is very polished. There's lots going on and I'm amazed what they fit in with such a small amount of donwloaded space which is a huge bonus. On top of being able to play on both the pad and phone. Love it since I also don't have to worry about pieces or card cleanup. Very quick play. You can zoom and if lost can easy access their user friendly help menu. The tutorial also was a great feature. Thought was put into this- if there's one infection it rotates slowly around the country. Build to two and it moves faster. Three it flashes red and is twirling. Music and color of the map also changes depending on the event. Not too much but these subtleties set the mood. Just a nice tough altogether. The game is hard but I guess will be rewarding when I win. 0-2 so far but really don't mind losing- makes you think strategies.
Highly recommend at $5 and am contemplating paying $2 more for the expansion ck.
Fun and Unique, but Needs Expansion
This is one of, maybe, two board games in the App Store where you stop infections and save the world. Most others want you to start plagues and infect the world. So, if you want some thing different (and less negative), this is a very well made game. I've had a lot of fun with the solo co-op mode.
My only two complaints about the game are:
- It needs an expansion. For example, a new map such as a single continent (Europe, etc) instead of the whole planet. Or, maybe a Sci-Fi map such as a colonized Mars.
- Please let us disable the annoying opening animation. I do not need to see the cards dealt and cities infected at the start of every game. Ugh 😖😕
Good start, needs multiplayer
A great example of a digital board game done right. Lots of fun to play on your own, but without multiplayer the co-op experience doesn't truly shine through. Well worth the investment if you're gaming on your own, but I'd recommend passing if you're looking for a more strategic experience with other people.
