**2014 Pocket Gamer Best Casual/Puzzle Game Finalist**

"Pathogen's simple-yet-addictive gameplay is augmented by a terrific presentation, with visuals that make it feel like you're playing on a computer from a 1980s sci-fi film."

"A portable game of elegant strategy"

"...It feels like a classic game updated, but it's a whole new animal. There's an extensive single-player mode, multiplayer, and a level editor to make your own boards — much more than $2.99 should get you."

"I’d definitely say Pathogen is an absolute steal at $2.99 in the app store."

"Part of me wants to hate Pathogen, just so I can continue my unremitting crusade against the drab joylessness of abstracts. But I can't do it: the game's just too enchanting."

Awesome!! But not really :|

This is a really good app and its one of the best puzzle games ever cause there are so many strategies and levels and stuff. I found out about it from vsauce also. The game does have some annoying parts though. The zoom button blocks alot of the screen and sometimes it says you havent completed something when you really have so u have to close the app and reload it. But overall its a super awesome idea for a game and it deserves 5 stars

I heard about this game from vsauce. I love strategy games myself. This game may seem like an "infinite strategy game", like chess or something. I personally find this game to have so many options that there is 'no' strategy. I relate this game to othello. You can conquer the board but near the end the opponent captures like 10 pieces. The thing is, in this game it doesn't just work in one direction, but in ALL directions. That's my personal view on the game. I see other people liking it, so you can go ahead and spend the dollar. I'm not raging for a refund, it's just a dollar. I'd say give it a shot, but if you don't like othello, I wouldn't get it.

Pretty fun!

I've only had the game for a few days, but so far I'm loving it.
The only issue I've run into so far is how I'll adjust the music volume of the game, then after a while it'll seem to go back to default volume and I'll have to readjust it.
Not a huge deal, but when I'm listening to other stuff at the same time, it can get annoying.
Other than that, very fun game and I definitely recommend it!
