Rip off!

I liked this game until I reached the Fungus level. Basically, you start off with several diseases in casual or normal mode, and after you beat them, it will unlock other diseases. Fungus level is harder to spread, because they travel in spores but I found it extremely difficult after the casual setting (which is supposed to be the easiest level ). I decided to take a detour and invest in the zombie virus, which is only available by purchase. I found that one difficult to play even in casual mode, I even purchased several genes that will help boost your chance of winning. None of which even made the slightest difference in the game play. Since this is a free game to download, it's good to play whatever games are available in the beginning, but after that it's just a waste of time and money!! 😡

Fantastic Game

This game intrigued me because of the very realistic horror aspects and the incredible design. I love that this game is entirely up to how you personally want to play it; you make your design into what it is, you pick where and how it starts, and you determine on how and when it will end.

I also think it's even creepier having a constant update on real-life events and news. However, the placement of the news center is a little troublesome when you need to reach those northern most countries. Allow me to check the news on my own time and in a different part of the screen, and we're absolutely golden. :)

HIGHLY Recommend!

I actually love this game. I'm typically not into strategy games, but this one is built perfectly! You have to beat each disease type on normal to progress, but if you beat each one at lower difficulties, you earn new DNA strains to help you at higher difficulty levels and in higher tiers. If you win at the higher difficulty levels, you not only unlock more difficulty levels, but also new modes, scenarios, and eventually cheats. No, it's not a war game, but in my opinion, it's far better and much more fun. I highly recommend this game!
