Good App But...

This app is simple and a great way to kill time. You release a sickness (plague, Bacteria, virus etc) you keep upgrading your sickness to become a global pandemic although you have to be careful as if you make it lethal too quickly your sickness will kill the people who already have it and won't spread and you can't upgrade too slow as the world will create a cure, your main goal is to kill everyone in the earth or as much as you can. Although the problem is that if you want to have more fun and have a cool zombie outbreak you have to Pay. Sadly this is common in the app universe but just because it's common doesn't mean its ok this game feels like it's trying to steal your money overall it's a fun app that's trying to take your money a lot of stuff is locked and you must pay to unlock no other way, if you are rich go ahead but Do Not go out of your way to get it.

Beyond awesome

This game is one of the best games I've played and I've been playing this one for years. From zombies to the planet of the apes and now shadow vamps... if ur like me and have been playing this for a while go ahead and buy it show your support! Hey the that makes the game... I've played and made my own custom scenario. I luv the editor but the planed events to make our own event is a little difficult. I avidly watched the TV show and would love to add my own. Is there a lessons or tutorial you can post with this section or something to make it a little easier. By the way my game was named Helix.

Great Game and Concept

I love this game. I can get so involved that it is easy to waste away multiple hours, sometimes a bad thing, sometimes not. The dlc may be pricey, but the expansion plagues, especially the shadow plague, are a ton of fun. Even without the expansion, this game makes you think while also giving you a challenge and being a lot of fun. If you can't decide whether or not to buy it, just buy it. Also btw a lot of the negative reviews are from old buggy versions.
