Great Game!

Choose parasitic (free bonus to insect and rodent transmission), and use all 8 evo points on non lethal symptoms including sneezing to begin! Important, do not add any lethal symptoms until all countries infected! After initial 8, build up resistances and add traits. Traits-Swarmer (Remember free bonus from above), Endurer, Terrorizer, and maybe deceiver if notoriety builds. Resistance levels I use are Cold 2, Heat 3, and Moisture 2.....try and fit Bird transmission as well. If done right, you should kill off the world in 45-65 days on hardest level! Islands can be tricky and still shutdown especially Madagascar. Just take away symptoms to reopen ports. Good luck!


good game

Unlikke the review below this game is NOT impossible you simply have to try different tactics. Instead of upgrading your virus/bacteria/parasite every chance you can you LET THE EVO POINTS BUILD UP! I've scored over 300,000 on one game.

Start building heat/cold resistance depeding on the temps you start in, keep lethality low and let the points roll in. IT TAKES TIME.

I also don't understand why I cannot use my iPad sideways to play this game. Seems like it would be easer to see the whole map in landscape mode.

I'd also like to see some new changes to it. IT doesn't seem like it's possible to generate EvoPoints any more once people are dieing and the vaccine has been released. There is a trait that talks about corrupting the vaccine and I don't know how to do that. Either I kill everyone or the vaccine is released.

Also, watching the temperature swings from 20C to -5 in the same day in JUNE in Europe seems a little odd.


2 Minutes???

How are you supposed to play when you die 2 minutes into the game? Payed 99 cents for EXACTLY 1 minute and 54 seconds of gameplay! I don't understand how in two minutes...The world discovered my virus and cured it when the ONLY thing I did was to select Drug Resistance 1. How does this even make sense? Number of infected people kept swinging wildly from 2 people to 11 people. THAT'S IT! Then the screen says that the humans fought valiantly and destroyed me. Fought what? I didn't even do anything! Was reading the descriptions for the first minute and a half! I only downloaded this because Plague Inc. started crashing on startup. I tried three times and every turn ended before the 3 minute mark........I have now deleted it.
