Fun... but

Now this game is legit fun. I'm not gonna rant about Simian Flu being probably the hardest brutal I have to beat (it's my last one besides shadow plague). No I'm not gonna rant about fungus probably being the hardest Mega-Brutal. But instead, about its fan base. Now the Youtubers are OK as they post tutorials that helped me beat literally every plague on brutal. But I'm gonna talk about the noobs (no offense). There are a lot of people that rant about the game being unbalanced ( COUGH COUGH Necroa Virus COUGH COUGH). Many people call out the game for being to "hard," when really it's kinda the same strategy for the basic plagues and mixed up for the special plagues. Now I understand people want to beat the game without help of Internet, but unless you've been known for being the strategy king in your family, I suggest you look for a little help. I like that the game wants you to play more because of the cheats, it adds a sense of challenge to game for reward, instead of just the plain golden biohazard medal thing...

Reliably Challenging

First, never had a crash. I suspect the crashes others have reported come from infrequent reboots, ipad too full, or too many apps open. Or just luck. At any rate, I've never managed to create the environment that seems to plague a few other players.

The game's strong points are the large number of parameters and the customizability of the viruses (viri?). No episode is exactly like another. Brain-eating plagues give you a markedly different experience from brain-eating zombies. I especially enjoy the challenging fact that you must NOT go all out with dramatic symptoms, since you need to escape detection long enough to infect as much of the world as you can. Then you need to step it up, once the world notices, or they'll develop a cure before you've cleared the planet!

My only complaint would be that I'd like the new viruses to come a bit faster. Each new one has been so excellent, it's a bit like Santa ;-)

7+ (iOS 10.x)

I should not have waited so long to try this app, as it presents a delicious irony. I greatly appreciate the latest balance adjustments by the development team, but took away stars because even the best strategies are undone during humanity's final throes. This usually manifests as a sudden dying off—faster than the chosen pathogen's rate of transmission—of several hosts in the last region, which results in the improbable survival of a small number. This, of course, appears to encourage the purchase of DNA one would have earned had the latest scenario reached its likely conclusion. There's a word for this phenomenon as it relates to unpaid apps: "freemium." I don't know what to call it when an app was relatively inexpensive to install but costs much, much more to enjoy (ie, consistently see the probable and/or likely outcome of one's efforts). ***EDIT: Post-release support for this title has been exceptional. These are the developers we should support.
