Interface needs major improvements

The game is fun, but the interface is terrible. You need to keep up-to-date on a lot of changing information, but the interface requires a tremendous amount of tedious, repetitive tapping in order to get to that information. Why not display some of the key pieces on the main screen? For example, the big “Disease” button could easily show the daily infections. The big “Infected” button could show the number of healthy people as well, since you often want more specific information than you can get from the progress bar. The big “World” button could show the number of uninfected countries; in the early stages of the game, this is a more important number than anything related to the population as a whole. The Pacific Ocean could house a list of those uninfected countries.

Why is there no way to quit without over-writing the saved game? That makes the saved game near useless. It is almost always the case that you get to a point where you know you’re not going to win, but if you want to go back to your saved point, you still have to tediously wait for the game to run all the way out.

Please provide an option to stop the “cutsey” news blurbs and sound effects. I get it, the game developers think Terry Pratchett is great, but seeing that for the hundredth time adds nothing to the game. And I can’t tell you how sick I am of hearing that annoying “Ring around the Rosey” song.


This game is utterly fantastic and I absolutely love every aspect of it but I have an idea. For a new DLC you should do something like the Simian Flu and zombie virus combined and it should be for the maze runner! For those who haven't read the book this is how it would work. The virus is called the flare and you should be able to chose the country where a solar flare hits. The flare would automatically kill half the population of the country and make it a humid climate making you think which country you should pick because if it's too hot the rest of the people may die. This is where you would start to make the virus itself. Everyone would be easy to infect at first because the country is in chaos but the country would slowly rebuild. The flare makes people go mad and crazy. You would have to balance lethality and infection as always but you would also have to manage how obvious it was for people to know if people have the virus. You would be able to evolve the abilities infected had similar to the zombie virus. Eventually WICKED (the government it the story) would begin to train people who could become immune and find a cure and you wold have to send hundreds of infected to that country but it would be difficult to take over since WICKED is very powerful.

Great game!!

This game is really awesome but i have a couple suggestions:
1. With the necroa virus Z Com should be better because when it goes to a country that already has zombies when it gets there it just never seems to get rid of them all so Z com should be buffed up a little.
2. With the unlimited DNA cheat it only gives 3000 and sometimes I run out so make it like 9999 or something.
3. I have a new disease idea it's called Plants Vs. Humans. It is a disease that infects humans and stuff but u can evolve symptoms that make the humans want to fertilize their plants and when the humans do that the disease gets on the fertilizer and it infects the plants. After that u can evolve different things for the plants like making them attack humans and making them learn how to walk and after u evolve all of them there is a thing to evolve that makes the plants stop making oxygen and i think after u evolve that the cure progress bar should turn into a bar that shows how far the humans are to making their own oxygen and after they do that it should start killing the plants because humans stop breathing out carbon dioxide
If u decide to put this in an update can u please put my name on it? Austin Turley i know this is a lot to read but i think this would be pretty cool.
