squishshroom - Fabulous, and a Huge Bang For Your Buck
This game is genuinely so well done. I grew up playing the flash game Pandemic 2, and once I heard my boyfriend talking about this game a little while ago, I was stoked. It really does make you think and formulate strategies specific to each disease and difficulty, which I absolutely love. If one thing worked every single time, it wouldn’t be much fun, would it? What’s supposed to be easy is easy, and what’s meant to be a challenge does not disappoint. Also love the addition of the special diseases (neurax worm, zombie plague, planet of the apes, vampires), and how you can unlock them without spending any extra money (so long as you have a little dedication and patience). I managed to unlock all four within a matter of days, and they’re stupid fun.
Most negative reviews, I’ve noticed, are coming from people who complain about it being “too difficult,” but I promise you, everything can be done. Easily? No. But nothing in this game is impossible to achieve. (Don’t forget about online guides if you really are finding yourself in a pickle!)
Bottom line is that this game is fantastic, and for only a dollar for the mobile version, I’m not quite sure what more you could ask for.
BaseballKiiiiid - Great game overall
I love the game, it’s super fun to play. However, I’ve noticed that there’s a bug in the smallpox scenario, or at least I think it’s a bug. No matter what you do or where you start, after the plague infects a few hundred or a few thousand people in your starting country, it immediately stops infecting people. Sometimes it will spread to other countries, but in those countries it also very quickly stops infecting people, making the scenario end very quickly because the plague kills everyone and doesn’t infect anyone more. In a recent smallpox scenario, I started in Egypt and it infected like 10,000 people, more than usual. Then it stopped infecting people and eventually no one was infected in Egypt, the 10,000 were all dead. It spread to a bunch of other countries in Africa and infected a few people in those countries, but then stopped infecting. It even spread by plane to the USA and like 20 people got infected, and it immediately went down to 0 because everyone got killed and no one else got infected. Besides this one issue I’ve confronted, the game is super fun to play.
Joeyminecraftgamer - Awesome Game!!!
This is a great game! It’s all about strategy. Here’s a strategy for Normal mode on the bacteria plague type. Start in China. First, save your DNA points until you have 20 or more. Then, buy drug resistance 1, bacterial resilience 1, and if you have enough left, buy water transmission 1. Next, save 50 DNA Points up. Then, complete the bacterial resilience tree, buy bacterial resilience 2 and 3. Next, save your points up to 60. Then, buy Water 2, air 1, air 2, and whatever water and air come together to make, i can’t remember what it’s called. If any symptoms mutate, devolve them immediately. This is good because your plague will infect the world faster because nobody will notice it and nobody will shut down ships, airplanes, or land borders, making it easier to spread country to country, continent to continent. Doctors will most likely only notice once a good portion of the world’s population is already dead. I tried this myself. Trust me, it works.
TOO HARD!!!!!! - I’m disappointed
This game is very fun when it works right. I started off on the easy difficulty and managed to win after one or two tries and then moved on to normal mode in which I have spent the past 3 and a half hours trying to beat and have not been successful. The jump in difficulty from easy to normal can only be described as braindead. There was one round where I managed to get the entire world infected without my disease being noticed (I did this by devolving every symptom when it came). As soon as I started adding symptoms, within 5 minutes the country was halfway to a cure and I couldn’t produce enough dna to make symptoms that would kill off the population, because once you have a bunch of people infected the game decides that you don’t need to earn dna points anymore for whatever reason. I went online looking up ways to beat it just for my own satisfaction of having the level beat but not one of them worked either.
I remember playing this game when it came out and having a lot of fun but now there’s just a bad taste in my mouth and I can’t stand the thought of turning it on again because I know it will only frustrate me to no end as I hopelessly try to beat the normal difficulty knowing that I will not succeed.
Nickfang33 - Good Game
The game is very addictive and absolutely a ton of fun. I’ve spent days playing it and going through all the different difficulties the game has to offer and even bought a couple of the dlc desease types. My only smaller complaint (why I have 4 stars) is one I can understand but still bumps me out. The pc version has a couple more things than this version. And I can totally understand that it takes a while for the updated to be brought into mobile, I would still love to see the multiplayer option in the game. I can’t stress enough how many times I’ve wanted to play the game with a friend since they’re also a fan of this game.
In all this is a very great game, worth the money but keeping in mind it isn’t a game everybody will find exciting. But it is really fun and I recommend checking the game out.
I would love to know if a multiplayer option is ever to be released for the game, it really bumps me out not to see one and it would really add replay value if one was added. Once that is added I’ll give my five stars instantly!
ulba12 - I’ve had fun destroying mankind
It has been fun, and I like that you do have to ‘win’ at different levels in order to open more advanced buggies. I am a bit miffed that I bought the lab pack and can’t seem to use the bug I created myself.
I would also like to see the ability to adjust human behavior to counter “rich” countries having the advantages of medicine and facilities. Please, there are societies out there that are some of the poorest in the world, but the healthiest on this globe. Plus, as we have seen over the last few months, just because you have money doesn’t mean your stupidity stops (idiots on the beach in Florida in March as thousands die from the pandemic, or people insisting getting their hair and nails done is far more important than staying home.
A bioterrorist attack would not ALWAYS be an “escaped” or “stolen”, perhaps it was a mad scientist that is slowly releasing it wanting to infect as many as possible unknowingly for as long as possible, what, too easy to kill off the dumb humans?
StellaIsMehName - Needs more Realism!
This game is fun and a great way to pass the time while your bored or there’s nothing better to do. I enjoy the use of strategy and thinking you have to put into this game, but I would enjoy A LOT more if it was more realistic. First of all, countries of limited amount money and are somehow able to up the cure in a matter of days? I find that ridiculous. Another thing that annoys me is somehow a little cough or sneeze leads to research. In real life people would assume it’s just allergies and not go straight to the lab and find a cure. Even when it’s severe and is able to withstand almost anything possible that doesn’t slow the cure at all. I mean maybe by a day but their able to bounce back pretty quickly. I don’t enjoy how quick it is for them to cure the entire world so fast. Another flaw is that in real life we only have limited amount of resources. In the game somehow they have all the resources to ever exist. This game is fun but I would enjoy it more if it had a more realistic touch to it than it does in reality.
11nasa22 - Liked the game - the payment disappointed me
I liked the game but the payment disappointed me. For example when I click play scenario “everyone created equal” i read the description and thought “this is gonna be awesome”, they asked me if i wanted to play on bacteria or virus or spores etc... I chose and entered the game. There is nothing. I thought id see pop up signs like “in this world everyone is created equal and support is being sent to 3rd world nations in case of a pandemic” or pop up signs would appear where people protect a poor country. But its worse than original games. I then tried “pirate plague” where less boats and planes are travelling because of pirate piracy. I expected “pirates are looting this area and as a result traveled is reduced” and other pop up signs that really make the game feel unique. But it feels like it was abandoned and I didnt expect that for a game that was so great for 1$. Im criticizing the scenario pack, i dont think ill buy scenario creator after this
PS. The random “covid 19 “message that appears during game causes stress .
GraveSkull - Latest update
I want to start off by saying I love this game. I always have. And I've never really had issues with anything. I'm not saying they messed things up badly or anything, they probably did this on accident. Since the last update the other day, it won't show if a stat will decrease when you evolve or devolve. It still shows how much it increases, but it won't show if something will decrease a stat. While it's not a huge problem, it can kinda mess you up sometimes. Another tiny bug is that sometimes, the map bugs out and keeps trying to zoom in or out automatically and you can't select a country. The 2nd bug is fixed by reopening the game. Again, I'm pretty sure they accidentally turned off something when they were updating and forgot they did. Other than that, it's perfect. I hope you see this so you know about it for later!👍
Cowboy0704 - Welcome by reading this text you have been infected with a new pathogen
Amazing! However they say it’s a realistic example but its not. There is unlimited funding and somehow they know it’s a new disease just because nausea is a symptom even on casual it seems that a checkup involves blood work or something also the scientists find a cure way too fast hiv hasn’t been cured yet but it’s been around for 40 something years they can cure any . disease in like 2-4 years it also doesn’t consider malaria and other deaths it’s like everybody stops dying and giving birth when your disease has started. Then people start dying again once your disease becomes lethal. The world has unlimited money and one time only 200 people were still alive and somehow that number could cure my disease. Definitely worth the 99 cents it cost but I hate the In app purchases it still gives me an add for unlocking all the plague types when I already unlocked all them by playing the game
hi i don't want to use my name - Great game!
I want to start by saying that this is a great game. It’s really fun, and it’s definitely worth getting. There are two points that I’m seeing about the game that I want to defend:
1) It’s too expensive. I’m seeing a lot of people saying that it’s too hard to get all of the modes, but that’s the challenge. That’s a bit of motivation for playing the game. The only thing that you really have to buy in the app it the scenarios, which is a huge expansion. All together, that’s only about 4 dollars, and I’ve been playing this game a lot and enjoying it a lot. Definitely worth it.
2) It’s unrealistic. What do you expect? It’s a game. If you, the disease, can mutate lots of abilities and transmissions and other stuff, and basically had endless resource, it’s only fair that the cure has lots of unrealistic funding. Otherwise, the game would be too easy.
This is really long. Basically: I love the game.
The Iron Jet!!😎😎😎 - It’s good but...
The game is good. It’s addicting, but one thing is wrong. I play normal mode to unlock the new virus, keep in mind I’m on the first virus 🦠. Normal mode is not normal. It is extremely hard mode. It is impossible to get people to die, but infecting the whole world? Oh it’s a piece of cake! When iCure becomes successful the cure process becomes way faster. I HAD THREE STRAINS AND BOTH DRUG RESISTANT AND THE OTHER ONE TOO (I forgot what it was called) EVEN WHEN THE CURE HITS 50% IT STARTS TO SPEED UP THE PROCESS OF THE CURE! all I’m asking is, making normal actually normal, get rid of iCure, and slow down the process of the cure and let people actually get to the second virus. And also make upgrades less expensive. That’s a flaw too. I be trying to upgrade near the death of man kind as we know it, and when the whole freaking world is infected, I don’t get DNA 🧬, which means I can’t upgrade, which means the cure is made, which means I lose, and when I come so close and lose, so many freakin times, I get mad. I want to move on bro, is that too much to ask?
despicable human - Just one issue for me
I love the game and I recently became hooked again and I’m beginning to notice a common occurrence, My disease is killed off due to random mutations. I don’t mind the mutations it’s that I wish they didn’t cost so much to devolve. I know you have a gene that makes devolve costs not as much but could they in some modes/difficulties have no cost and no reward for the random mutations. Keep the cost for devolving symptoms/transmissions/abilities to cost DNA points. I find myself to have just bought an upgrade early game and bam, a symptom mutates and cost 7+ dna points to devolve and my disease gets spotted. Other than that I love all the games you make (Plague Inc. and Rebel Inc.) and think that people should at least look into your games. If this does not change I will not be very bothered because I still love the game it’s just a recommendation from me.
Yazo675 - Consistency would be nice
The games fun and it’s a dollar, as one of the top reviews states. The tutorial tells you how to accrue biopoints or whatever they’re called by infecting and deaths the only problem is the game isn’t consistent. I kept devolving my virus so that it wasn’t detected and infected pretty close to the entire population so according to the tutorial I still should have been accruing those biopoints right? Well the points stopped coming but I was banking the points I was getting, up to the point it stopped and made it lethal the tutorial also says deaths accrue bio points too well again not accurate. Spent all my points the death toll SKYROCKETED no points so I have a pretty susceptible bacteria. I was counting on the points I SHOULD have gotten from the death toll but I didn’t get any except from the yellow bubbles which was not even close to enough to evolve ANYTHING and the cure was made in like a month in game time and the game was over. I would suggest making your game according to your tutorial. And it would be great! Until then it’s okay.
Dustin412 - Good but could be better
I like the game. It takes strategy, passes time well, fairly in depth. I like the premise, but it’s kind of unrealistic. You can try to progress your disease to be aggressive, but people die off too quickly. Sometimes it’s easy to infect other countries but somehow some of the smaller can go un-affected. Once the disease progresses and more countries get infected, anytime you upgrade the transmission, countries and regions automatically counter it somehow, even the more poor areas of the world. Also it seems like the abilities to increase effectiveness of your disease in wealthy countries and to slow down cure research and make it harder to cure do nothing. I had the drug resistance 1-2, genetic hardening 1-2 and genetic reshuffle1-3, but somehow there was a cure for my disease in 2 1/2-3 years, without even severe symptoms. That’s just on normal difficulty, i cant imagine brutal or mega brutal difficulty. I love the game but maybe tweak it just a little to make it a bit more realistic.
Kingsspan - An all time favorite
I’ve had this game downloaded on multiple accounts over multiple devices since it first was released. This game is an all time favorite of mine. I can go months without playing it, and then jump right back into it and get drawn into the gameplay and challenge of it all over again. It has great replayability, and I’ve heard the board game is equally as fun.
My only complaint is the amount of in-app purchases. While many things can be unlocked during gameplay, they tend to be ridiculously hard. The prices for certain extras should be lowered or grouped together. As someone else pointed out, with the money you’d spend getting the game and all expansions, you could’ve bought a higher quality PC/console game with more in it.
TLDR; all time favorite game, wish the in-app purchases weren’t how they are.
Plague Inc. Reviews - Good Game, But Could Use Updates
If your a beginner at this game and you have no clue on how to beat brutal or mega brutal it becomes pay- to win. I am quite new to this and only re-installed it 2 weeks ago. This game doesn't need Wifi or internet so if you're looking for a good game without internet, this might be for you. If you have beat Mega Brutal then you are a genius at strategy. By the way if you want to beat the game easily with a basic plague type than use the virus plague. I currently have every plague type in the game and if you want a cool plague type and you like zombies get the Necora Virus. This game is the best I have played. If you like Planet of the apes then get the Simian Flu and if you like brain worms then get the Nurax Worm. If you like Creepy vampires then get the Shadow plague. This game needs more plagues so please add some! All and all this game is epic!
small hobbit - New game mode isn’t explained well
So they recently added a new game mode called “The Cure”. The problem is the tutorial for this new game mode doesn’t actually explain its new features all that well and pretty much PLAYS ITSELF which as both a gamer and somebody who learns better by doing than by being told, it’s more annoying than helpful. It also makes it confusing when going to play the mode because none of it comes off as all that well explained. What do any of these new things do? Why is authority important to cure disease? All it seems like is some arbitrary hp meter to give a game over. I get that this is a game, but in the updates (at least via steam; I also own a copy of the game on PC and this update isn’t on there yet) it sounded like this was going more realistic due to them working with real world organizations, but I guess not. In reality this stuff is handled differently by each country, which is hard to get across by game mechanics I guess 😕
I lost my past progress, anyway, since I deleted this version and it doesn’t seem to keep saves.
msjuris - Great Strategic game
I’ve been playing this game for nearly 10 years. While other games have been down loaded and then deleted from my phone -Plague, Inc Is the only game that I’ve never stopped playing or deleted due to boredom. It is challenging and thought provoking. It’s a game I don’t mind losing, especially if I accomplish my own goals. I will play the game to see if I can take out one area of the map without doing much damage to another. I can’t praise this game enough. It’s the only game that I have never been required to pay any money to continue playing. It has been free for as long as I’ve been playing. Don’t know if any other game that can make that same claim.
You can control the speed of game play, pause games and save them for later. It’s an all around excellent game. Love it.
prof1011 - A lot of fun, but some major errors that should be fixed
This is a great simulation. But as something that aspires to be realistic, there are a few irksome details that should be fixed.
First off, no country in the modern world can stop animals and insects from passing across its borders. Completely impossible. Ask any biologist.
Islands like New Zealand, Madagascar and Iceland are well within the range of birds. The idea that these countries would be completely immune to disease right next to them is completely unrealistic, as is the idea that any country could just ‘eliminate birds!’ Really?! Every since one of the millions? Good luck with that- modern armies can’t even eliminate 100% of humans in a given region, certainly not all animals without killing themselves in the process.
Secondly, cures don’t roll out to hundreds of millions of people Ina a matter of days- it’s more like months and years! If a team of doctors in Canada find a cure, no, the entire continent of Africa is not going to get that cure in a week. They’d be lucky to administer it in a year! And when 99% of Canada’s population is dead, where are they finding the resources to cure even a handful of people?
Then minor things- like I understand not all ports are shown, but no commence btwn LA and the Pacific Rim? Hello, it’s probably the largest single commercial route in the world!
Izzy's Aunt Meme - Sick fun! Love it!
I’m a bug that destroys the world! Really clever and lots of fun. From casual to mega-brutal difficulties, you can choose how you want to play. I’ve been enjoying this game for free for over a year! If you have patience & some skill, you can earn the DNA and don’t have to pay anything for that part. I decided it was totally worth it to purchase the additional scenarios and unlock some extra DNA sequences.
A few things I’d like to see in an update: 1. More spaces to name my bug, as I like to add the date & difficulty I played at (alternately, just add this info to the ‘high score’ section). 2. I don’t really care about recording the score on games I didn’t win. 3. During game play, I’d like to be able to reference which pre-game selections I chose (perhaps on the disease tab).
Many thanks to the developer. Love it!
Rabbid dogg1000 - Really good game but one suggestion
I love this game and I believe it is incredibly well made, although there has not been a major update made in an incredibly long time and having beaten most of the diseases on mega-brutal I also have not played it in the same length of time. If I might make a suggestion I think that a multiplayer feature would give me and others a reason to start playing again. An example of how this could work is maybe one player controls the disease and the other controls the countries attempting to cure it. Or maybe it can just work similarly to the board game where each player controls a different disease and compete against each other to be the first to infect the world. Still rating five stars however just because I love this game
Crashingthroughthesnow - Shall we play a game?
Well lemme tell you guys a story. My sister bought me this game + all the in-app purchases last February but I never got around to playing it until about this past December. So there I was, sitting there, drinking a beer, and I decided to give it a go. I launch the app and a lovely little screen pops up and says “Shall we play a game?” Of course I’m like “well I’d love to” and then it’s like asking me all the questions about naming my disease and being the smartass I am decided to name it after my beer. Well I fell asleep that night and never finished the game but today I launch it and whatdaya know, I’m conquering the world but my death rate’s only 3%. In any case, 10/10 for immersion! I’m hoping to get around to finish it soon, I think I have to kill the world to win... wish me luck!
Krista&Cory - Necroa flaw
When playing Necroa (which is a paid upgrade) I cannot move zombie hordes while also popping zombie bubbles! The bug/glitch is that when you click on the “horde” option it opens the “info” screen instead of allowing you to place the horde in a country. SUPER ANNOYING!! I’ve spent the entire day trying to figure out winning combos & strategies only to get most of the way there (even following directions I found online for BRUTAL mode on normal mode) and CANNOT win because of the glitch!! I’m super frustrated like why is that even on the same menu bar as the directive?!
Will be deleting the app soon if this stupid “info” option isn’t removed from the move horde menu bar!
Other than that... the game is super duper fun and I’ve quite enjoyed destroying humanity through various bio hazards 😉
Love that it takes strategic thinking but I wish the Necroa wasn’t so hard to beat... makes it not very fun!
Honest Customer_ - How to contact the developers???
I absolutely love this game. I’ve had it for a while now and it’s my favorite game to play on car rides and other long trips. In fact, I loved it so much that I bought the option to unlock all scenarios a little while back. However, I had to delete the game for a couple months when I was low on space, and when I downloaded it again I had lost access to those scenarios. I’m confused why this happened, I would think that since I still owned the game (it just wasn’t on my phone) any purchases I made should be upheld. I don’t want to pay for it again, but I loved the scenarios and would like to continue playing them. I can’t seem to find a way to contact anyone to solve this issue so if anyone has a way to help me either contact someone or solve the problem please let me know!
Freddy Foxy Bonnie Chika - This game is AWESOME!!!
This game definitely needs at least a 3 star rating because, even though it isn’t realistic, it’s updates lately have really made it fun (except for the fact that in one of the scenarios fun is banned but you get to bring it back anyway, so who cares?) You can play it any time and win if you know what countries to infect first so that it infects the whole world and if you have the right strategies. I mean, once I played it once I told my family about it and they love it (it is very hard to find some thing that they like) so much they wouldn’t stop playing it until they got and won all the scenarios and beat every disease type on mega brutal
They LOVED it so I bet you and your family will too (if they like making humanity extinct)
Pastulu Casuaal - Gets Repitive
The game is fine, but it gets really repetitive, as you’ll mainly just go for the same strategies, and same difficulty(ies). If the game gets boring, then mix it up a little, I recommend playing in Mega Brutal, and you might be asking: “Woah! Why recommend the hardest difficulty?” Because as said literally 5 seconds ago, the game gets repetitive, even in Brutal. Playing in Mega Brutal gives you that adrenaline boost, the wave of relief when you finally beat a disease type despite potentially dozens upon dozens of attempts. Start off with Neurax Worm, (that is if you’ve unlocked all the disease types) and end off with Fungus.
Aside from the constant COVID-19 jokes it’s an okay plague simulator. What I wanna know is why there isn’t multiplayer in neither Mobile, PS4, Xbox, or the Switch ports, it’s PC only, and there’s only Custom Scenarios.. strange, don’t you think?
Eli ELM - Good but..
I really love this game and I made it all the way up to prion but then I was stuck I even tried looking up ways to beat I was getting quite bored with the game and really wanted to play to play the special diseases and wanted to try out all the scenarios and the custom ones so I got the plague pack but I was little upset I thought it was going to include the scenario creator and also I wish you would be able to download as many custom scenarios as you would like but I understand how expensive it can be so I’m fine with that but I spend the exact money on a new vr game which is a lot more fun and just an awesome experience kind of weird example but works it’s kind of a big investment to get everything you need but overall it’s quite a fun game I’m happy with buying the $1 game not quite with the $13 plague pack
LollyLocutus - One of the best games on iOS
Who hasn't dreamed of taking over the world? Well. This isn't exactly that but destroying it is the next best thing. It's hard at first and then it gets even more difficult over time, and I bet you'll love every moment of it.
The one thing I wish it had was a single button I could press to simply buy everything. But don't worry, everything in the game can be unlocked as you play. I just didn't want to beat everything else to play as a nano-virus.
The display UI is as simple to master as the concept of the game itself. The graphics allow for understanding of the spread while the "news real" hands out just enough detail to keep you entertained without having to show just how horrific it is.
The only issue with the graphics for me is that the world doesn't turn black as the disease kills the world. It just kind of darkens a bit. I want it black! First, burn it red with infection and then burn it black with death! But meh. That little nitpick isn't enough to keep me away.
So give this a go for those days when you just want the world to end in new and imaginative ways each more horrifying than the last.
BobZombie88062015 - Great game but irritating
This game is awesome, but I only rated it four starts because of the difficulty. There’s a fine line between challenging and downright frustrating, and most of us don’t play games to be annoyed. You can buy cheats, however, which leads me to believe that the difficulty may have been designed that way. For example, once the world begins developing a cure, you have a limited amount of time to wipe everyone out: because they WILL finish it and it WILL work, and it WILL cure EVERYONE every single time. You use DNA points to evolve your organism to spread and infect the world (multiple times I’ve infected the entire global population) only for my disease to be spotted, and the cure begins... but there’s no one left to infect, hence no more DNA, hence you can’t make your disease lethal and they cure it and you fail. Like I said, it’s a very fun game, but in all honesty had I known it would be as annoying as it can be I wouldn’t have paid for it.
ETHANDMA - Absolutely Amazing
I agree with fish time again’s statement, this game isn’t easy, it is something that it’s very fun when you find different strategies to succeed, it’s just one dollar and if you wanna unlock just certain packages and game passes, then you can do that, you pay less than Plague Inc. pc users, because you can get the game with available packs and other things to buy IF YOU WANT, I want to point that out because if you don’t wanna buy anything it’s fine, you could just play your way through to unlock most things I believe, while in PC, you buy the game for 15 dollars and you have everything unlocked. It may be unnecessary for some people to do this, so that’s why I rate this game in the App Store version a 5/5
julschris7 - Mega Brutal problems and Realism.
The DNA when you start is ok, but when you advance to the stage where you infected your whole starting country and other countries then the DNA slows down to 1-2 DNA per 300,000 to 500,000 and for that amount your should at least earn 10+ DNA. Also I killed about 60 million people and only got 2 DNA. Absolutely ridiculous. Also in Mega Brutal your disease when it is discovered and lasts for 50 or 100 days, so many countries invest in research for a disease that literally has no symptoms and is harmless but treated like the Black Plague, Smallpox, HIV, Chicken Pox, harmful tumors, or cancer. It is pretty unrealistic considering there are other disease out there needing that attention. I don’t mind the fact that no humans die or old age or are birthed, but I would love to see that in the game. If you improve this I would give 5 stars no doubt. Great game, but has lots of issues.
CButera24 - BEST VIRUS SIMULATOR OUT!
I started playing this game what has to be almost 5 years ago now and it’s one of my favorites. I keep the app on the main screen of my phone right up front. Payed for the full unlock with all the trimmings. Played every scenario and virus type. Huge fan and the game has never, IMO, had any issues I’ve encountered or bugs that have made the game function in any other way than its intention. I love that you can unlock everything or just buy it. But the company isn’t cash grabbing us by losing the game with micro transaction just to keep the fun going. You pay once and THATS IT! Just fun from there on out. Awesome game everyone! I completely recommend this game to anyone reading this review. Go ahead, enjoy yourself!
LinxCEO - Way too difficult.
I’ve been playing games exactly like this for like 10 years and I’ve never seen one as difficult as this... Jesus, even the “easy” mode is impossible. And I use a proven effective method. Maximize infected, then hit with the deadly symptoms.
However I had like 3 test games doing different methods, all on “casual” mode, and I lost all three.
Game 1- Infected the entire world, waited, racked up DNA points, then I went in for the kill... cure was developed in about 30 seconds and I lost immediately because I totally stopped getting DNA points after I started killing off the population.
Game 2- Same as game one, but before I started buying deadly symptoms I sold the transmission upgrades so I had some points to spend. Cure developed at a steady pace, stopped getting DNA points, lost the game.
Game 3- I maximized the infected, then I started buying drug resistance. Then I just didn’t even have enough DNA points to kill anybody. Ended up buying not even lethal upgrades, then I lost because the cure was being developed and I got like 2 DNA points every 10 seconds. I couldn’t buy anything.
At least make the easy mode easy. Give us a more steady income of DNA points instead of just totally cutting it off at 5% lethality.
Deleting the game. I’m not gonna play if an experienced strategy gamer can’t even beat easy mode.
werewolf36 - It’s a Great Game...
But there’s a problem. People have sung the praises of this game and I agree with everything others have said. The reason I’ve given this game 3 stars is because the Custom Scenario’s just stopped working. It’s not an issue with making them or playing the ones I’ve already downloaded - that still works fine. The problem is that I can’t download any new ones.
Every time I try, it gives my the loading screen and then closes to show that nothing has downloaded. I’ve uninstalled and reinstalled the game and that hasn’t fixed it. If this is a bug, I’d suggest getting it fixed immediately.
Once that happens, I’ll give the game the 5 stars it deserves.
VelvettFogg - Needs to start killing people faster
I like the game but I have one problem: people won’t die quick enough. I had lots of deadly things and the game was on casual and I still barely killed anyone. The game should also give you more dna points or give them to you faster. The cure should also be developed slower because the moment I add some stuff, people where already working on a cure, and this was on the easiest mode possible. People who haven’t played the game are probably gonna call me a noob and people who have are probably gonna tell me it’s supposed to be as difficult as it is, but I think you shouldn’t barely be able to kill anyone. Just a thought developers. I highly doubt the developers will even read this and fix the problems I had so yeah.
kurglit - The cheats.
So the game is really good but the cheats are SO hard to get. I’m still trying to beat casual mode. So here is what I think you should do: add cheats for free in the build your own Sanrio game. BUT for the gold ones you need to win three games on MEGA BLUTEL (I spelled that part wrong:( ) also in the build your own Sanrio game. Also that DNA thing before you start a game. Well you all of the germ type. (Ex: if you won as a virus. You would get all of the viruses DNA things.) BUT it has to be normal or higher. No not casual, NORMAL (or higher.) also add a delete all button for the government commands. Other than that it is a good game. Also maybe do the same if you add make your own cure Sanrio. Anyways if you do what I told you then I will write another review about the new version that I want. Bye! :)
DatAsianBoiDoe - Cool
I’ll start by addressing the criticisms of this game. People say you have to buy everything. I’ve beaten everything on Brutal and it unlocks the special scenarios after I beat the first 7 on Brutal. People say you can’t even beat normal. Normal is surpisingly easy. IF YOU DON’T PUT TOTAL ORGAN FAILURE AS ONE OF YOU’RE SYMPTOMS TWO MONTHS IN. The reason you have to pay for the scenarios is that the devs work hard to make them. Now for my praise.
This gane is really fun. I don’t know what else to say other than that. Killing the low 7.1 billion people (really should be updtaed to at least 7.5 billion but oh well) is surprisingly fun. I swear I’m not a psychopath. Thanks for the fun game, Ndemic! Keep it up!
P.S. You guys should totally add a scenario creator for Rebel Inc., too.
Master Jedi Danger - It’s a good game but...
Right now I only have the virus,And whenever I play a normal difficulty to try and get the next one, soon I have most of the world dead, but then there will be one or two countries that don’t get infected at all. When that happens, I don’t end up getting any DNA points at all! It’s just hard to play when I can’t progress. And, I don’t want to buy them all (I don’t want to sound like too much of a choosing beggar,That’s only because my dad won’t allow me to buy them. All in all, this game is amazing but I just would like it better if it was easier to actually progress instead of just doing Christmas scenario 50 times so that I can actually play the game (I like the scenarios that you guys provide!) scenarios are good, but I usually play them just because I can beat virus on normal mode.
freshadvocado - The #1 OG game
This is the best game the two dollars are WORTH IT. I love the new feature of being the one to stop the plague it’s really cool. It would also be cool if the devs could make a multiplayer where one person would be the plague and another would be the cure if you guys can do that it would be 110% more perfect. I haven’t played the game in a long time but when I saw the new thumbnail for the game I was interested. And now I’m starting to play again. I’ve unlocked all plagues but I can’t complete the bio weapon, it’s hard but not impossible, keep up the work devs your games are awesome
🔥👍😎👌. I’ve yet to get the rebel inc. but I’ll try to get it, it looks cool so maybe in the future.
Smiley & the Bandits - A lot of fun you can beat everything without needing to buy any of the actual expansion pack items.
You however cannot buy the custom scenario kit without it trying to make you buy it twice apparently. This infuriated me deeply is all I wanted to do was to play my own scenario that I made. Very convoluted difficult and I wasn’t able to play even after already buying it. It sends you in a never ending circle sending you to the scenario kit then back the to the game it never ends. So stick to the game I guess until they fix that glitch. Other than that I’ve wasted hours playing this game I love vampire mode it was especially satisfying earn your way up to it.
JellyApple102 - Addicting with tons of content
It can take a few tries but once you figure out how everything works in conjunctions with each other the game gets super fun and addicting.
Each disease has 4 difficulty levels. Casual, normal, brutal, and mega brutal. Beating one on normal or higher will unlock the next main one. There are 4 special ones that can be unlocked for free, even though the game doesn’t tell you that. You have to beat all the main ones on brutal to unlock the first one, and then beating a special one on brutal will unlock the next special one. Each is a different challenge that is vastly different from the one before it.
In addition to those, there are scenarios, or special plague games. There are a bunch unlocked for free. They can range from crafting and spreading a fake news story to simulating a hit board game sale. There are more scenarios to get for a a couple bucks, as well as user created custom scenarios, which give the game also it unlimited replay ability.
All in all, awesome game, everyone should give it a shot!
Tv Man the Dude Derp - Good game
Best mobile game I’ve ever played. It’s a nice Brian exercise along with some satisfying moments.
Most negative reviews come from people who complain that it’s too hard. Everything can be completed, maybe not as easy as you thought but still.
Fist thing to do once you finish the tutorial is look up strategies online. This will give you the best idea of how the game works and what you need to do to be successful. After that, all you need is a little bit of confidence and skill and you’ll dominate.
And if you are one of those people who just want to destroy the world with no real difficulty and challenge, you can buy cheats for 8 dollars. This will allow you to basically do whatever you want with no consequences.
SolarNightFlare - Fun game, some issues.
This games fun and all, but there needs to be a way where you can keep getting some mutation points. Towards the end of the infection, you get nothing and if you don’t have a quick enough lethality, you always end up losing to research even with the research resistance maxed out. You hardly get any during the last couple days/months of in game time. That, or de-evolving should give back more points than just 2. Why do we have to spend 10-27 points just to get back 2 in the late game, I understand because it makes the game harder. But, it’s almost unplayable late game unless you 100% have some way to cheat that, with some method a bunch of wiz kids put together on the internet.
audreythelittlepanda - Best game I’ve played all year
I absolutely love this game! My whole family is hooked, although there are a couple cons. First off, this game is super fun, but once you kill/infect a bunch of people it becomes insanely hard to earn DNA points. Second, once people realize that there needs to be a cure, the cure ends up progressing insanely fast no matter how much drug resistance i have. Third, normal is pretty dang hard to beat! I’ve tried playing it several times, but I just can’t kill/infect everyone. Anyways, enough with the cons, let’s get to the pros! As I titled this review, it really is the best game I’ve played in 2020. I can’t stop playing, and neither can my family!! It’s amazing! Thanks for reading, and sorry for the long review!
Tairoholic - Game is too easy but fun
Have to wonder about the people complaining about difficulty. Seriously. Once you figure out to keep symptoms removed entirely until youre ready to mass murder, the game is easy as pie on any difficulty.......I figured this out my 3rd game and it has been a cake walk since with any virus type or difficulty. This didnt require google or reddit, how to win stares you right in the face.....Too hard? LOL, no. Too basic. I gave it 5 because its still insanely fun. The game is too easy, I cannot believe anyone would downvote the game because they cant see 1 simple and logical decision. The same tactic can be used with any plague type, even virus.....
Mom of Deaf son - It good! But some :/ also some idea for you!
So I think price kinda too price I mean ape and vampire I have to pay 9 dollars so I think should free or all in one app I don’t want all I just think better one app all. Also I wish more realistic because airplane really I mean there like 100,000 each month but one airplane 6 time in one month ehhhh it unrealistic also I wish more story not too fast you can put in story mode or fast mode (normal) for example story being in the China virus name is Cadi-20 what her name how start I think more fun story telling also symptoms it most annoying for me because I want that I want not change I want that but sometime game will auto organ failure I don’t want I want stay. Scenario is cool but I don’t understand why it have to price they make.
Clark6050 - Great game, really annoying glitch
I’ll start out by saying that this is an amazing game. I’d recommend the pc version over this, but if you want to be able to play this on the go then this is a great purchase. If the glitch I’m about to talk about has been patched then ignore this and buy it.
The glitch is that after the game is closed (even if it is cleared) if you tilt your screen the view will switch even though Portrait Orientation is set to locked. Sometimes you may have to restart your phone if it keeps doing it after trying to lock and unlock your PO.
Other than that I am greatly enjoying this game and I would recommend it. I would give it 5/5 stars without the glitch.
Flipflan the Destroyer - Ignore the Hateful Comments
Unlike some of the comments say, this game is not too hard to beat and is actually really easy once you have a strategy. I saw a comment that said, "You have to buy everything to get anywhere." But that statement was not true. I have beaten all the standard plagues on brutal without assistance from a guide (except for fungus, I just have a really hard time on fungus). I didn't buy anything except the game. Scenarios aren't free but the the game developer explains why. Cheats are earned and so are the plagues that completely change how you can play. If you have a good enough strategy this game is completely do able.
This girls liking it! - Addicting BUT too difficult!!
I’ve been playing this game for a while, and I still have yet to beat a game! I’ve used strategies and everything. Nothing works. DNA needs to come in at a faster pace. Because right when you start killing people off, you also stop getting any DNA at all! And then on top of that, the cure moves too quickly, even if you’ve upgraded the plagues resistance 100%. I’ve even tried using proven strategies to beat the game and even that has yet to work. All his combined leaves the game to be really frustrating and just not fun after a while. This is definitely not a game for people with little patience. It’s definitely a fun and addicting game. But I wouldn’t recommend it if you actually want to win the game! I would suggest just using this app to pass the time. That’s all.

Wteueye - Great game
This game is really cool and it is also difficult which makes it a nice game to play, because finishing a game in a week won’t make it so fun. Anyways.
I was wondering, are the computer graphics of the game going to be updated onto the mobile version because I really like them 👍😁. And also I found a glitch, idk if it happens to other people but when I play the simian flu plague, and then ‘save and quit’ the game when I get off before unlocking the simian neuro-genesis thingy in the ability section, and then I go back on the game, press ‘load game’ and then unlock the simian neuro-genesis ability, the apes destroying the lab won’t go into effect. So I’ve unlocked the ability but nothing happens pretty much. Pls fix this. Anyways it’s a great game
Newc fly in - Great fun (in rather a horrible way, re COVID-19)
I had trouble locating the Pandemic board game, so tried this instead. It’s challenging and took a number of tries (12 to be exact) before the Virus won (on the Standard level w/o purchase of any additional packs). It’s fairly realistic re the choices made during each pandemic scenario, and you have to be mean to ‘win’ as a Bacteria.
I’m looking forward to see how the scenarios change, as I progress through the different pathogen types. A Virus is next. This game would be a lot more fun, if COVID-19 wasn’t wrecking devastation across the globe right now. I wouldn’t be playing this game if it wasn’t, because I’d be outside doing other things. Hopefully the global scientific effort will produce numerous effective treatments and cures/vaccines for C19, which will be distributed equitably across the globe. Thank you to all the frontline staff keeping everything going as best they can now,
Chris Huntington - Ruined by greed
Dear gamer who is considering this game,
(especially if you used to play this back in the days!)
I used to love this game as it had the right balance of challenge and fun, where the challenge naturally becomes greater as you progress through the game. This updated version is almost impossible already from the first level, which is without doubt in my mind an attempt to make you do in-game purchases already from the start. I understand updates that are made to improve a game, and even in-game purchases to speed it up or avoid ad’s, but this is based on pure greed and ruins the game experience rather than improving it. Shame! And it doesn’t encourage me to spend even more money on their new game if this represent the new direction of this company, as I’m sure you will have to spend even more money in-game just for a decent game experience, even after purchasing the game it self in the first place. Thank you for your attention, I will now rage quit and see myself out ;) Have a wonderful day, god bless, amen.
TheKingOnYouTube - This Is Really Fun, But There’s One Thing...
Plague Inc. is a very fun game that offers a lot for the cheap price, but there is one very small feature I would like added.
As I said earlier, Plague Inc. offers a lot for it’s value. One of the fun features is the ability to spread other ‘viruses’, like having to make your board game a top seller. But with those games, the icons for sales and people interested is the same as a normal virus, meaning the sales icon is a death icon. I know this is a VERY small thing, but it would be nice for custom icons.
Other than that, the game is five stars. It is awesome, easy to play, and most of all is fun. There is not much to conplain about, as frequent updates and bug fixes get released, with content and fixes. The game is fun. That’s all. Fun.
I remember playing this when I was younger, and have only downloaded it again recently, but it really is fun. There are loads of nock-off games that have low graphics and quality, and that’s just not something to trade off, so spend some extra money, and get this wonderful game.
remmyxxxxxxx - Really great game
This is a great strategy game that challenges you to think like an evil mastermind on a mission to eradicate life on earth. It’s very fun and caters for all ages and abilities. However, some things don’t always make sense. Like you may have no symptoms to your disease yet and it is somehow spotted and people start doing cure research for a disease with literally no symptoms. Also, people continue to do cure research, even though the whole earth is infected with the disease, and symptoms include insanity and paranoia. Also somehow cure research aeroplanes can fly even when airports shut. Despite a few inconsistencies in this ‘hyper realistic’ strategy game, it is really enjoyable and engaging.
Euripides1234 - Cure distribution could be more realistic
I love this game but feel like the cure distribution isn’t realistic. If a massive chunk of the planet is infected with a deadly illness, how does a cure then get distributed around the world - to everyone who needs it - so quickly and thoroughly? Who is flying the planes full of medicine to the far flung reaches of Canada? Which medical facilities are producing enough of the cure to help everyone? It makes sense if only a small proportion of the world is infected by the time a cure is found, but I can have barely any healthy people left but if the cure gets to 100% it’s a relatively instant fix on a global scale.
Kaelon Caieru - Kudos!
It would be even better if the developers could add screen motion synonymous to the weather event notifications. Or a display of where the disease may travel but might not infect... anyhow, kudos to the team. An add on transmission effects; what about pets? They are neither categorised as wildlife nor livestock so another option would be applicable. Also, added features to more medical symptoms would be awesome. Maybe even a certain demographic option to choose who are most afflicted initially? This is the only worthwhile mobile game. Great premise and even greater coding.
Yshstakdgxus - Awesome disease and scenario idea
This game is very awesome and realistic and I think it could be even better if the developer(s) added in a disease which only infects animal species (like in the TV series "Zoo") which accelerates animal mutations to adapt to the human world and puts them on top of the food chain again. The scenario idea is actually made by people in custom scenarios, but they do not work as well as the real scenarios do. My idea is to have a disease and you are the humans trying to cure it. I hope you can do this (but I can understand why the developer(s) may not be able to)
Josh Creepa - Fix This Game
It is easy to see why this game has the Best Game of the Year award under its belt. Even a fool wouldn't question this games' success. But the 1 problem that I have are with the achievements. Some achievements (like the Power Overwhelming achievement) are almost impossible to get because of the ridiculous spread of the news feeds. And the Plague in Space achievement, they somehow survive even with Total Organ Failure. Fix it please, and thank you for reading my review James (or anyone else who works at Ndemic Creations).
nameJEFF!!!!----14 - Must Buy!
This is a great game and is a must buy if you are looking for a strategic challenging experience. However, plague inc can get boring over time. Once you have completed everything in the game there is not much left to do. Maybe you could incorporate more things to do in plague inc. I know that there is scenarios and much more but it’s basically doing a disease that you’ve already done. Scenarios are fun but also meh.
In conclusion, Great game love plague inc been playing for a few years now and I really love playing it very enjoyable great experience. A lot more can be added and done to make it more enjoyable! Must buy!
angsty teen with depression - Normal = 99% impossible
Took me 20 tries but I eventually got it all other diseases are all good though. If you are having trouble with it just always and I mean always keep the disease under the radar until the end and even then you might loose like how I only had to get Madagascar but other wise it is good except that you have micro transactions in a game that costs money but it is a good thing to mess around with it is not at all bad and if you parents go on about how it’s insensitive then you better strengthen up because in the future your kids will be playing shooters like cod or apex but thank you
HappyThanksBB - Pretty Good
A disease has broken out, a new massive threat to humanity and you need to start a cure to comba- oh wait, wrong script...
It is your job to create a disease that will destroy the world! Start, nurture, and spread your virus across the world, being stealthy to infect in numbers to bring an end to the world later or leave a devastating path of destruction in your wake! Either way the worlds best and brightest WILL try to stop you and it’s your job to kill them all.
After playing this game only a few times, I could already tell how in depth and laid out this game is, from its strategy to its virus creation screen, this game is always ready for a challenge and I like that.
This game is a five stars all in all and can provide a challenge to anyone and everyone. No wonder it has won prizes I mean, this stuffs great!
Gamenotches - Becoming more about money than players having fun
This game was awesome. But now it seems like it is just trying to bring in money now. I hadn't played it in a while before today. I saw it had an update available with some new scenarios added and so I updated it and went to check it out. What I saw was all of the scenarios that I used to be able to play for free are now locked and you have to pay for them. I remember playing the vampire one, the planet of the apes one and the one where the plague was frozen and un-froze but now I can't play any of them.
Gjkpugcd - One of my favourites
I started playing this game when it first came out and got through most of the levels, so I decided to uninstall it. But about a month ago I downloaded it again and was amazed to see the number of scenarios and extra features included. Fun and challenging and dark and just one of my favourite games! I particularly enjoy the Necroa Virus expansion; It adds a bit more complexity to an already very enjoyable game structure.
Infinip4lyfe - 10/10
I bought this game expecting just a sad and boring game that I would delete soon ( no offence to game developers ) but then when I actually got it I saw how amazing it was! Literally this game is worth basically a dollar and it should be worth far more, keeping this forever and I completely recommend it to anyone else. Also I made a virus called Covid 19 that started in China so..This is going to be fun...
1258792270 - Amazing Game
One of the best strategic games I’ve ever. It is also no doubt one if not the best games I have ever played, I would personally recommend this game. All though it can be a little hard hitting at first, sine your killing the human race and all, but once you get into it you will love it. It gets your mind thinking... you know. It’s a got to try game and if you haven’t tried it then now is a great chance.
Trollguy123 - Cure way to fast
Game is great BUT the cure is too fast before I can kill everyone, and I really don’t want to just pay to experience all the types, make the cure slow on the first level and on the rest normal speed, please it would help alot considering this to new players, I’ve been stuck on the first level many many times and I just can’t get passed it. Please make it slow on the first level then normal speed on all the levels, Sincerely, a fan.
IAmAPenguin303 - Doesn’t save progress
I got this game a few days ago and it’s been really fun to play. However, when I got to the 10th June 2019, it hasn’t save any of my progress since then. Even when I press save and exit, when I come back to play again, it starts from the 10th June 2019 every time. This is very annoying, because it means that I’ll never be able to finish the game, as it doesn’t save even when I press ‘save and exit’. Please fix this! If this problem didn’t exist, I would probably give Plague Inc. 5 stars!
jdhndjdheheh - Awesome
Lots of silly name love it you can’t stop playing it😆 I really wish you could get a closer view of the map I mean what would it look like when everybody is sick or when there is no humans on the planet like would be like a ruin or still all Modern they should also make one game where you try to blow up the hole universe starting by killing all the human on earth! Awesome game!
Xav_1206 - This game is amazing !!!!
When I first saw my friend play it, I thought you had to pay to unlock anything other than the bacteria, but when I found out that you can play to unlock them I was so excited, I have got it and I’m up to beating shadow plague on brutal, this is an amazing game and I would recommend it to anyone, best 1$ I’ve ever spent
Elltertainment - Great game! One problem and one question though...
So, great game. Fun to experiment with different genes, disease types and symptoms. One problem, though.
I’ve bought the Custom Scenarios and the Pro Upgrade for it. No problems with purchasing, but the problem is with loading a previous game with custom scenarios. Whenever i try to load a save from a custom scenario, the game will crash, forcing me to start that scenario again.
Oh, and my question, as mentioned in the title. Why is multiplayer not on here? I’m assuming it’s something to do with server limits and screen size limits, as the HUD on Evolved Singleplayer looks different to Evolved’s multiplayer.
But still is an amazing game, and worth the money for the game itself and custom scenarios.
MegaGamer2204 - Awesome game
This is a highly strategised game that if you don’t know what your doing can be very annoying at times, for me I took me 2 years to complete the first level but I totally be saying you should get this game and the full version is worth it, I am pity sure that I got it for free but it’s really worth it.
A truely awesome game that can get you thinking
jeffakamax - Great game but one thing
So I bought this game a while ago and I bought all the special virus packs but then I deleted the game and recently I bought it again and I’m on the the same iPad but now when I got it again I no longer have the ones you pay for but I do have the achievements from using them.
Any ways great game and if you can help even better.
Bicboi.69 - Why are people saying this is hard?
I was looking through reviews and there were some people saying that it was impossible to win without buying things. This is not true, I have won on brutal difficulty on all normal plague types without buying a single thing. Stop blaming the dev’s “greediness” for your incompetence.
Lover of peeps - Suggestion
Hey James love your game. I have neurax necro and expansions but I’d like to suggest for a more immersive experience at the end of a game some sort of speech from the UN depending on how bad your plague was
Also city cams for mobile would be great considering it would be quite easy to add simple pictures to a mobile game
Master Ronald - Good But Needs Some Changes
This is a really great game. It is often very challenging which is what makes it engaging.
A few things that I would really love to see improved would be
1) different symptoms, etc. should have the ability to give you more DNA points.
2)when a cure bubble is popped, it should set the cure back by one percent or something.
two player mode - Let me be honest
To be honest, I love this game so much. It is so fun and I play it a lot. I only have one issue and it’s the fact that the game doesn’t really tell you what everything does like the different types of plague. The cure is also REALLY difficult to stop. I still enjoy the game a lot and hope that you can update and keep the game amazing. Thank you.
Ruby🙃 - IMPOSSIBLE
The casual game mode is easy to beat but can get challenging but as soon as you try to change to normal it turns impossible and you literally can’t beat it. I thought it would be a little more challenging but you can’t beat it at all. i’ve tried all the techniques for hours but nothing is working!! Please make a mode easier than normal but harder than casual!!
adstoomuchinthisgame - Love it!
The new cure mode is great! I never would’ve thought of the idea. What would be even cooler is if your friend was playing on another device, but he was the plague you were trying to defeat in cure mode! Keep up the amazing updates! I know they aren’t easy.
A Really Really Good Person - Flawless
Love it. People who complain about it being too challenging are either not approaching it right or don’t play enough. It’s a horrifically magnificent game and the addition of the alternate modes, especially the positive ones make for endless hours of play! :)
james.y.janoskians - Fun the first couple of times
It’s fun the first few times but gets boring quite soon after.
It’s super easy to win on ‘causual’ mode but impossible on ‘normal’ mode. Even when you look up an exact walkthrough on how to win you never win.
If you’ve got a spare dollar then totally get it but it’s a game you’ll play for a week and then get bored of and delete it.
"Larm" - In Love With Christmas Addition - Happiness!
I'm in love with the Neurax Worm disease that makes everyone happy!! It's easy to win which makes it easier to infect the world with happiness, and in turn, me happier!! I love the little difficulties arising like the Sloth and Intoxication mutations, that you need to get rid of to keep people happy! PLEASE KEEP THE NEURAX WORM IN THE GAME!
Hi🎀 - So fun👏
This game is really enjoyable to meddle with and it’s so fun to take over the world. When you get down to the bone, it’s become so tense and suspenseful. The only downside is you may have to pay money. I personally don’t think that takes away from the game.
Limo ace - Need to change graphics
Hey it's a great game I'm sure you'll agree but the graphics for all the desieses stay the same example the nano virous stays as a bacteria and bio weapon and fungus it would be great if you could improve this and then add what it does to the human body in an x ray and the last thing people expect it to have the zombie/necroa virous you could at least make that one free plz just that one and this would be the best game ever plz plz do these
Brokenikon - Every budding evil masterminds dream
There’s something horrifyingly wonderful about this game, where your goal is to bring about the end of all mankind(which would ironically include yourself, bravo)
Create a virus, have it either slowly spread through a country, slithering it’s way into every family and bringing society to a stand still.
Or have it spread like wildfire, rushing through the streets and killing thousands before they can seek medical help.
So many ways to play this game, so many ways to tailor your play style depending on the disease.
ヽ(ﾟ∀。)ノ - Great but sometimes doesn’t make sense
I find this game very addictive and enjoyable, yet some things are unclear/don’t make sense.
The cure research is sometimes done so quickly and it doesn’t slow down even if I developed total organ failure/insanity/etc.
Genetic reshuffle sometimes reduce the progress significantly while in other time it makes no change.
I find it frustrating when traits that I developed seem to have no effect on research prevention, so I really want the impact of a player’s action to be more noticeable.
Despite these things that I find dissatisfying, I find the game very well made.
aDudeYou191 - The best game ever!
Hello if your considering buy ping this game, PLEASE do. This game is so god darn fun, the is so many options and paths to chose from and the second best thing is, making up your name for your plague! To be honest everyone is using COVID-19 or Coronavirus as name. Plead don’t use something more creative!
GamingDargoon94 - The Game is great and all but...
My brother deleted this game while I had the Shadow virus and Necroa virus expansion. After I redownloaded it again it wouldn’t let me use the two virus I had paid for, instead the game told me I have to pay the viruses.
Right now, the App Store to this game says I have already purchased the two virus expansions.
Can someone help me with this problem?
Gina.K - Want to keep playing!
This game is awesome.. the only thing is it won’t let me unlock the next plague unless I win the game under ‘normal’ or ‘hard’. I won 3 times on ‘normal’ and it’s still saying I need to win or pay to unlock it... please help?
Mich*** - Fix it
This game would be more fun if the difficulty wasn’t so hard to get pass and as a beginner I think it’s a little dumb to have access to only one virus mode because it’s just to hard to get pass so there’s nothing to do but I think it would be more fun it this was fixed and evened out so it’s not just raging in frustration about a game with lots of hype, I feel lied to this game needs adjustments.
emily magsin - disappointed
i was SO CLOSE to killing everyone with my virus callled coronavirus, but people are recovering! Not even a billion people have died and no one is getting it anymore! I am very disappointed.
But overall i guess this is still a good game...
BigCat1503 - Purchases?
I was forced to reset my device and despite the fact the app information says I have purchased items, when I am in the app I am unable to use said items as I “have to purchase” them. Is there a way to restore purchases?
conversion_123 - Real life experience
I love the reality it gives with spreading the disease. I hope to survive the epidemic of coronary by practicing this everyday to avoid getting it myself. Good luck to you all travelling and going to public spaces. I shall see you in 10 months.
Grainwaves03 - Awesome strategy game
I only just got this game and I am hooked! This game is really fun. Some would say it’s infectious! The graphics are great and it’s an awesome strategy game. My only complaint is you have to pay for the add-ons, but the designer explained that already. Get this game!
xandertown - Anti-Consumer. Just buy the PC Version
The Scenario Creator, arguably the best part of the game is locked behind a pay-wall. I already paid for this game, I shouldn't have to pay for the creation tool. The Scenario Creator is free on the PC, but why isn't it here?
The game is good but other than all of these greedy micro transactions for a game you've already paid for the game it's self is just as good as it is on the PC.
2 Stars. For now
An4264 - Wow
When I first got this game I thought it was a normal iOS game but after I started playing it I knew it was amazing! Especially with the scenarios and cheats and special viruses! Ndemic creations obviously spent a lot of time on this game and it’s great that they did!
Marrick65 - Awesome Game
The scenarios are very difficult to get 3 biohazard symbols on. Most diseases cure way too fast, regardless of how you play the scenario.
Overall though, great fun, but I get the impression most people will lose interest if they cannot beat the game !
Char Lie 05 - Great game
Plague inc is an amazing game with many different diseases that each function close to their own game.
It’s definitely worth a purchase.
However, I don’t think it deserves five stars because I bought the Nuerax Worm expansion pack, but couldn’t play it.
Regardless, it’s still an awesome game.
Norgard90 - Nice game but bugged?
I played this for a day, however i can’t unlock past bacteria even though i had infected all human and killed? Anyone has the same problem? Dev can you please suggest fix?
CJaBlaze - Definitely worth it
This game is definitely worth the money. Although it is quite hard it’s a challenge and I most definitely recommend this game. 👌

Leelou89 - Interesting Game
Played a few years ago, restarted today. Love the upgrades made to an already great game.
epicblakey24 - Pretty Good
I think this game is good, but the map is missing Newfoundland, an island on the east coast of Canada.
Jeremy slackjr08 - Pay to play new game types
If you payed to have the game you shouldn't have to pay to play new game modes it's stupid
PoptartWolfie - what?
Why is there a red thing above my head? Also, have you guys heard of the coronavirus? Idk. Sounds dumb. Loved my trip to Wuhan though.
Hi!?!??68217 - Ok
The people who made this game are very money hungry, an ok game though
Meeoweow - I love the realism
The best part about this game was that they actually released a virus into the real world as a massive ad campaign for the game. 10/10 would recommend to anyone trying to survive this new coronavirus.
Laurence100714 - Fun but $$$
Lots of fun but also lots of content you can only access by paying...
Gigaben19 - Hey, that's pretty good
10/10 "Would plague again" - IGN

I feel like it's sometimes rigged to not give you enough DNA points to make upgrades

The games good bu- wait hold on.. WHERES MY TOAST? WHO TOUCHED MY TOAST?!
frustr - It a fun game
I don’t like that you need to pay real money for it i like that it does not have many ads it fun because YOU control the vires and it has bacteria,vires,fungus,pests,nanovires,and bio weapon so I think you should get this app if you wantto
TerrarianSlayer - I need advice
So I started a virus back in November 2019 called COVID-19 and now it’s taking the world by storm? Like in real life? Is this a new update?
CalRoyale - One Of The Best
I really love this game and it's one of my favourites out there. Only thing I wish is that you didn't have to pay to unlock certain things.
SillyLilly800 - Really fun
It’s really fun and a super addictive game....BUT..I got the scenario pack and basically it just won’t “sync”. When I tried using the custom scenarios on plague inc, it said I had to buy it, but I did. I tapped on it anyways and it just opened the scenario creator app again. And when I’m on the scenario creator app, it says I need to buy plague inc. It’s very frustrating and I keep deleting and downloading again but it never works. I really wanted to use custom scenarios on plague inc and make my own but I can’t. I have no way of testing my custom ones. I live the game but this just really annoys me!
frano99 - Super!
This game is really fun, but they are asking a lot of money, if you lower the prices, you can have a lot more people playing, even though your the number 1 fake in the paid section. I really like how unique some of the plagues are, and how you can do previous plagues as well like the Black Death
Cat 44 23 - Best game in history
No cap best game ever. Especially since it gets really boring during quarantine
weedincweedinc - It’s great
Some people are just stupid and don’t understand this game has been out for like 10 years. They say it shouldn’t be out because of corona virus but if anything it educates you on how a disease can spread.
olivier prieur - Love this game worth the 0.99$!
This game is just wonderful love it!
sputnik-spooner - Sweet Revenge!!
I’ve wiped out humanity twice today! That’ll teach them.
Kenya.ban.cr.123 - Awesome!
This game is just absolutely fantastic, it's so fun and evil and worth every penny! Love it!
Ariana Grande is Queen! - Disease cases
Maybe make it so u can announce how many cases were identified to the public? And make it more fun then it already it!
tooleye3 - Love it
We just need to covid 19 update for the game
oh wow lol - Wow
This game is so good they made it in real life
Golf_King666 - Thank you plague inc, very cool
It’s corona time
AW3SOME !!! - Coronavirus
10/10 prediction ,Plague Inc.
Dickjpeg - :(
The game was fine but it made me feel bad :(
Daniel Levesque - COVID-19 simulator
I purchased this game years ago and still love it. Do your own grim simulations of the COVID-19 virus now that we all seem to be living a real life plague. They should make a reverse version of this game where you play as the humans trying to fight off the plagues.
ooijjinj - Money
Give me my fucking money back , i hit the restore purchases but it dosent fucking work dont put money into this game
GDhyder - Bad
I want my money back, Super Boring. My virus isn’t spreading in the game, I WANT MY MONEY BACK!
Alblair12 - dude
Fun but all modes should be free for this paid game.
Do not buy from Apple - Very immersive
This game is very immersive. After a while, you start to feel like you’re in it 24/7.
Dallaswr - Covid-19
Stfhcotzotptzs - Amazing
The best game, especially for self isolation. Can't wait for the COVID19 update in the near future.
Snowblaz - Fungus
Cheap as hell, fungus almost made me stop playing the game completely. Which is a shame cause the game is fun.

Zzz333964 - To hard
On casual cure was 92% finished
Liam Griese 12 - It was a mistake of buying this
The rules are I quote from Eric Cartman from South Park if you pay there are no apps so no more add-ons but if it's free there's ads I paid what is the cable
You can either a give everyone what they deserve read your price up or something at least and put it all in one app you're gonna be 399 for a stupid thing that's so dumb from one fan who waited a few years for this game to come out it's sucked
elvis_w0ng - Boring
Boring, so boring, omg this is boring.
Boring boring zzzz and boring again
Did i say that this game was so boring?

Coapantecalt - I love this game!!
This game is amazing, I would recommend it to everyone. I really like how much realism it has. The amount of time it takes to develop a cure, to the amount of real problems that countries have that could impact the development of your virus. One of my favorite parts is that there are many scenarios to play for free. My fav scenario is the vampire one. It is so crazy and really thoughtful of what people would think of when they actually had to deal with vampires. Anyways, there are also some unrealistic parts to it too. Like how can the cure get from country to country so fast, I don’t understand. (Wow I’m impressed that you have read this far XD)
Niko Butler - Very Fun!!!
This game is so good because you can get so many different infections. But I wish they had an update so you can zoom in on the map and start your infection on a more specific place. It is fun because I can just watch everything happen all at once! It is also good that you can edit your infection simply by evolving (in fact much more simple than that). Normally I lose and I still like it though because I just love trying out new infections. This version has very high quality and is actually very popular now around the world. I appreciate this app because of how much detail there is. Anyway, YOU MUST BUY THIS GAME!!!!
bio-wepon 16 - This game is the best
It is a very fun game with a cool area of gameplay and I would definitely recommend this to all of my friends. I have had a challenging time to complete each plague but that is what makes it fun to play. It has given me so many ideas to make my own in the plague creator and I really wish for this game to get more updates to it. It also helps me to think up of strategies that others could use. I also feel as if it has shown me how careful you need to be about your health like in the game and how easy it can be to get sick due to poor health choices. I hope others will enjoy the game as much as I do.
Nnnsddjfrjk - Way too much like real life ...
I've had this game for seven+ years and I didn't win until I decided to base my plague on the Covid 19 virus. I'm not a scientist, I'm a farmer; I plugged the info from the newspaper into the game and it wiped out the world. As such, I've decided to heed the experts, spend some time alone and wash my hands often. At 50+, I promise you that few weeks or even a few months of social distancing is a tiny fraction of this lifetime that will barely register as anything but a weird time in history when people hoarded TP -- if you live through it. Hey, if you think I'm wrong, stay healthy and tell me I'm full of crap when all this is over.
best reviewer out there :) - Its not hard stop complaining
The people saying that its too hard must not be playing correctly as i beaten all of them on brutal and was fun and challenging. Love the concept of infecting the whole world or curing the whole world. Also for the few people who want their money back cause your bored of the game... please grow up its 1 dollar for about 4-12 (more if you but extensions) hours of fun for a dollar and just cause your bored of playing it doesn't mean you earn your money back you got your entertainment sorry it didn't last long, but yeah overall love this game its very entertaining and challenging
okokboomerboomer - Good but...
This game is extremely fun but i suggest more options for symptoms like a disease class such as cardiovascular or something that effects the brain or lungs or stomach. These Could take away some symptoms like if you chose a lung disease it would remove paranoia but not the simple ones like fever and couch. It would also add some symptoms only attainable by using that subclass. Like for example, a heart disease could give internal bleeding and blood clots.
Another idea i have is advertising. You could use your evolution points to advertise for say cigarets if you chose lung based diseases and anyone who smokes has a higher chance of getting and spreading the disease.
Thats about it but thanks for the game keep up the good work
Wolverine1020 - Great game
This is a really good game but there is one bug that makes it worse.
I have played this game a long time and got the Neurax worm, I heard that you can beat the Neurax worm on brutal to get the zombie plague. I beat it and tried to use it but then it would not let me and when I pressed on it it said “would you like to purchase this item?” So I pressed yes and it just put me back in special plagues. I pressed on the others and let me buy those and for the zombie plague, it just wouldn’t work. I am sad about this because this was the plague I was most excited for.
Could you please look in to this bug so I could buy / earn this?
DCGoth - Buy This
I purchased this years ago for my original iPad (Series 3, iirc) and have started playing again. Buy this. It is well worth the price, and somewhat relevant in our current time of a real pandemic. Very well written and a plethora of additional upgrades, all worth the price, and no insane paywall. All of the items are affordable and worth it overall. My one gripe is that challenging friends is linked to FaceBook. I have the app platform turned off on FB and will never link anything to FB. I do not like how they invade my privacy and sell my information, so I have no info on FB and all of my demographics on FB are fictitious.
Stevexa - Good Game, but could use a few updates
I love this game. I recently bought it and am already attached to it. I have friends that loved this game so I played it a long time ago with them as well. Now that I finally own it, I have gotten lots of fun to play. I think it could use a little work though. Some minor things though, like more characters for the names. The games a little confusing at first though, I feel maybe you should experiment with a level system. Though I am not experienced with the game as much as some people, this is just what I think right now. Amazing game though, thank you.
MickeyBoat8 - Awesome but too many in-app purchases
I love this game so much! It is an awesome, addictive game! But it had a few things:
I would love if there was a multiplayer option and a built-in scenario creator that you don’t have to pay for. I would totally buy THIS: an in-app purchase which adds all the in-app purchases in the game into one in-app purchase, so you don’t have to go around, one by one buying things.
Also, (Why I rated 4 stars) I would LOVE if there were not so many in-app purchases and if you could play more scenarios for free.
Also, I was playing and was ABOUT TO WIN when it said that my plague killed all it’s hosts but some healthy people survived, and I don’t understand why I couldn’t continue to infect the healthy ones, even when the cure wasn’t finished. I would like it a lot if humanity doesn’t work on the cure so quickly. Even when you play on Casual these things happen. Right around the time I wrote this review I was a new player.
Aside from that, the game is awesome! I love it😎 Developers, please fix and work on these things and keep developing!
Renee M C.01 - Devolving Mutations Update?
Absolutely love this game to bits, but I can’t tell if there was an update to the way the DNA point refunds work when it comes to devolving certain mutations or if I’m just stupid.
If I remember correctly, in certain plague types you were never charged to devolve anything that you evolved while playing (unless you were playing the virus type for example)
Now, you have a limited amount of things you can devolve on a certain screen before it starts charging you DNA points. (3-4 I think)
If this was something that got changed then boo to the devs because that really wrecks a bunch of player strategies to get some bonus DNA (my own strategies included).
Paeger Waeger - Ridiculous don't even wanna give you that star
I love this game so when it came out with all the sweet attachments zombies vampires I was thrilled so when I pay for them on my phone and can't play them on my iPad I am understandably livid because I paid for it and should be able to play it in any device I own without having to fork out double the money for one add on!
Someone better get ahold of me on this matter as now that my phones done the newest required update and had to reinstall the game it says I haven't bought any add ons on any device and that's simply unacceptable!
As you work for your money and spend it however you so choose and want your penny's worth at the end of the day so does everyone else it's not fair to make us buy and rebut these silly little apps that are suppose to make us happy at the end of the long work day
22JainSt - BEST GAME EVER
I am very picky when it comes to games, I usually get bored pretty fast. I have had this game for a while now and I am still absolutely in love!! It has so much to offer, a lot of variety and content. Highly recommend!!
Note: under the simian flu, the blue bar of healthy people does not completely disappear when there’s no healthy people left in a specific country. I have to go into the country’s info to confirm whether or not the bar is accurate. I’m not sure if this is on purpose since it didn’t use to do that.
Also the cure graph after winning, shows a lockdown graph (with no data) instead.
Qwrchjgfdggjttjrbtht - Horrible new system
I used to love plague inc. I played in most of my free time and beat all modes, including neurax worm and necroa virus. However, that was back when it cost a dollar and you got access to most of the game’s content. I got a new phone and when I went to download it, I saw that it was free. I was confused, but I got it anyways. When I loaded it up, not only had the update that added the micro-transactions had also deleted my progress. I did not mind, as I enjoyed playing through it the first time. As soon as I got in, I tried to speed up time and saw I had to pay a moderate sum of money to access it. This upset me very much so I immediately deleted the game. The new game is atrocious and I would not recommend it to anyone. I hope you found this review helpful and make sure to post your own so maybe there will be a change.
Arachnaphobea - Game Deleted progress???
The game deleted my progress? All of my achievements, unlocked diseases, progression of game, speed run scores, scores, scenario progression, genes unlocked, Everything is gone!! I would recommend this game it’s fun but I don’t recommend this misfortune that I have experienced. This needs to be fixed please if anyone has experienced anything like this please share and if any solution exists share as well. I don’t want anything to happen to anyone else so please do not fill your storage and play the game with no storage. I did and this happened so please do not do what I have and make the mistake I made.
iamfred - Definitely worth the money!
I HATE paying money for apps, but I played the free version of this game when it was out and I was addicted so it was worth it! I also would love to have all the expansions, but I hate that you have to buy them one by one, I wish it was all in one pack or something similar! I also would love to see maybe a flip side to this game where you are fighting a growing plague, and you could do Black Death, Ebola, zombies all kinds and maybe do some history on some plagues maybe we’ll less known ones or playthroughs? That’s just my thoughts but the game in of itself is amazing!
Jackson723 - This game is hard but fun!
While I was playing this game on the easiest difficulty, it was pretty hard! But when I found out how to correctly play this game it got really fun.
In all, I think you should get this game because it is totally worth the small amount of a dollar. And if you think you think there is only a small amount of content in this game, then you are wrong because there are several game add-ons but if you don want to spend any extra money on this, then there are several different viruses from bacteria to bio weapon.
I hope you like this game as much as i did.
Ssundeenottherealyoutuber - love it and idea
you could make a virus that isn't able to spread so you must infect water bugs rats ect call it the F.E.V or forced evolutionary virus it is deadly it terminates there cells fast it will be extremely hard to cure and infect people they might bottle water or purify the water when it is noticed and they see how deadly it is they will panic and you will hear sirens in background the first thing you get for free is coma if you get infected it will cost 100,000$ it will increase the more dangerous it gets it also its a little like the bio weapon so lethality increases over time i hope it make its way into the game 👍👏🤝🤛👍👏
Nandksndnkfndndkdjsnwosj - Intuitive and Strategic Fun!
Plague Inc. is a game where not only do you have to be selective with your plague type to be victorious, but depending on what genes and symptoms you choose can detect how fast your plague is detected and/or wiped out.
Expert tip from me if you want to unlock all plague types, Put all your DNA points into the transportation of the disease, and when you have every corner of the earth infected, then and only then start upgrading symptoms. If a symptom mutates to early, don’t be afraid to devolve it even if it costs DNA points. That one mutation can hurt you in the long run. All in all, 10/10. Very fun if you like Nit-picky games!
Fatguyjogger - Obvious political bias
Don’t get me wrong, this is a brilliant game. I’ve been playing on and off for a month now, and I finally beat the bacteria level on normal difficulty. I’d give it 5 stars, except for the left wing political bias. I’ve noticed that Russia, Canada, and the Scandinavian countries almost never become afflicted, obviously because they have “superior” State-run healthcare systems, while the US, whose CDC is far superior to the WHO, gets the infections early and the President always gets infected. There are also snarky left-leaning political comments throughout the game. This doesn’t effect the gameplay, though, so if you’re a leftist you’ll probably enjoy the game more...JUST SAYING
KCdrmr - WHAT A AWESOME TIME KILLER WHILE ON LOCKDOWN.
People look at me like I'm morbid, but this game is more tool than actual "game," how cool is it to be playing and seeing same News on TV. All I gotta say, overreaction is worse than virus itself. Play this game, get an idea of what we are living through right now, and Pray we aren't dealing with something worse. Flu kills 17-20k in U.S. alone each season, with 1/4 Million hospitalized. I know not a single person infected. I understand precaution, but virus is gonna be least of worries when this is all done. 2009 economic crisis will be mild compared to what is coming. Awesome game, been playing since day One.
Gamer13892647 - 👍❤️😍👍💀🔥
I first learned about this game as a “backer” on Kickstarter. I loved the board game and the PC version so when I was looking for an app with high replayability and saw Plague Inc. come up on every list, I didn’t hesitate to spend the money to get it. The app is as good as the board game and PC game; definitely worth the $$$. I love this game and have no regrets. I play it over and over and never get bored especially because there are zero bugs, the tutorial is easy and the controls are flawless and natural. I’m excited about the updates, expansions and new content.
TL;DR I love this game and you won’t regret getting it!
Devinest3 - Amazing game but I wish it didn’t cost money
I love this game so fun there is several different types of diseases and viruses you can create when you get the name of the different difficulties and stuff but I wish you didn’t have to pay for everything I get it that she is unavailable but still it’s really hard to get them but all in all it’s a great game and I hope that you guys finish other great games like this one but he’s either lower the prices of the stuff or make it for you but I still wanna join this game content is really fun keep on doing the hard work
Lochlan7777777777777777777777 - Apes apes apes
So I bought the ape expansion pass but didn’t get it I really want it pls let me have it I used Christmas money people from last year it was a while ago but I still want it love rebel in to just little hard for me but i am only 9 so that’s probably why thanks tho keep working on the games to make the, the best you can o and also add campaigns that will make them 100% better sorry to waste your time thanks for reading if u did Thank you Lochlan Fitzgerald
cgfuixxufcxixfgch - Great game, especially for strategic gamers
This game is great, getting it for only 1$ is a steal, this game makes up for more than your money’s worth, and it it hard, but fun. Lots of the negatives about the game with people complaining that it’s “too hard” are just wrong, as long as you listen to the tutorial you’ll be good, and you will lose quite a bit but that’s what makes it fun, imagine playing a game where you tap once and win, BORING, you want an interactive game that rewards good strategizing, and sprinkles in a little luck to keep things interesting, just like this game.
Jake191721 - Worth the price
It’s worth it for its price but the game has more than a few bugs. This won’t hurt your experience unless you care about setting high scores or unlocking achievements.
I gave it 4 instead of 5 because there is probably 10 times as much content behind micro transactions. That in itself is fine but the game kinda throws it in your face. You will constantly find new features and game modes with pop ups asking if you want to pay to unlock. I don’t think there is a single menu screen that doesn’t have an offer in it..
Fun game. This was created from the concept flash game “infectinator”
ibeamee - Amazing game but...
This is one of my favorite games I play on my iPad but there is one problem with normal mode. When I try normal mode it feels like brutal mode, normal is too hard. Reason 1, when you infect the full world it’s hard to get DNA points, for some reason the points stop coming so I can’t evolve my plague. Reason 2, the cure is fast and really hard to deal with, and this connects with reason 1, the DNA points stop coming so I can’t slow the cure and protect my plague. This game is great but I would like it if you made normal mode feel like it’s normal mode/easier. Thank you.
Gooftroop1021 - Awesome except for one thing🖕
I’m not gonna lie: This game is awesome! It is so based on stragedy and has a lot of options. One game takes a while to complete but the fun makes up for it! I’m rating this 5 ⭐️ but there is one thing that I don’t like and could possibly be a glitch. I am on the virus right now and playin on normal. HOWEVER, every time the amount of infected people is about to go to zero, it says that I was defeated and that some healthy people survived! What? The cure wasn’t even at 100 percent yet!
If this is a glitch please fix in the future! Other than that, the game’s great!😂👍🤔
PunchingBag - Where Bad News is Great Press
I’ve played this since Day 1 many years back. Ride the wave while you can, but why don’t you cut the prices by 50% while you are sitting at the #1 spot? I have no problem paying for the packs, but I know many people out there who are forced to remain at home due to work outage and can’t afford the packs. Why not drop prices for this week. Besides, with what they just announced on the news regarding virus-based games on Apple products being removed, you might want to go out on a positive note.
Either way, I love Plague Inc.
DudeBruhWha? - Waste of 99 Cents (or more)
Garbage game... it’s one of those; “this game requires that you play it ‘wisely’, but instead of developing any amount of skill needed to succeed in any way, we have little pay-to-win packages and pay-for-more-win-chance DLC... oh by the way, here’s a cheat page.”
Oh, finally you spent 6.50? Ok. you can succeed and be a little more ‘creative’.
By the way, if anyone is under the impression this game is at all “realistic”, as is stated in the game description and as have many who play, I recommend attending school another time... start somewhere in elementary, by senior year of grade 12, take Biology, then Biochemistry, foreign affairs, government, economics then come back and tell me it’s “Realistic”. And if you want to tell me it’s a “strategy game” I only recommend doing a quick google search on George Washington.
IT ME AUTUMN!!!! - Only 5 Stars so it's at the top
This app is a perfect demonstration of why making a game free or not a ton of money, and then making any variety in the game cost, is a beyond stupid idea. I paid to play this because I remember when it WAS free, it was lots of fun, and I expected the game to be the same, but now everything fun in the game costs. I'm fairly convinced it is near impossible to beat by only buying just the app. You just can't make enough in-game money to keep up with the cure. Everything about it is BS- you're better off playing a Flappy Bird knock off
MikeDemop - Main game is fine scenarios are difficult to try and get you to purchase boosts
The main grime is pretty fun I’ve had a lot of fun laying it over the years. The scenarios are setup to be ridiculously hard so you have to purchase stuff in order to overcome the ridiculous things this game throws at you. I don’t find it challenging, I feel like it’s a ploy to try and squeeze money out of me. Until countries that are completely dead, and supposedly devoid of people, stop contributing to the globally cure effort, and there is always 1 (sometimes even 2) country that never seems to have more than 200 infected people (no matter how poor that country is) I’ll be looking for other games to entertain me. Thanks for all the fun over the years.
Awesome mr. Me - Extremely unrealistic
This game quickly becomes unrealistic when every country in the world has all the means necessary to cure a disease that they found out how? I didn't have a single transmission pint and there were riots over a "mystery disease" and the entire world found out about it. Within a few in game days Australia started cure research (I had just spread it to Australia) and it was alright and I thought it would be fine. I then spread it to Greenland and Iceland but there was absolutely no spreading after that. They were stuck on 2 people infected in Greenland and 9 people infected in Iceland. I developed transmission to battle the cold and medicine but it wouldn't budge. Even then the cure developed so fast and I had so few point I couldn't do anything. I liked this game but new updates have severely hindered it.
AppleUser#5 - Room for improvement/expansion
There are a few small things that would make this game way more enjoyable:
Tweak the infection system-
In the real world, it would take an incredibly long time to infect 100% of the people in a country, so by the time I have a country at 100% I should have like 25+ other countries at least infected. Basically make it easier to infect other countries but harder to infect all of one country.
Get some more Plague-specific news/tooltips-
For example, Viruses, prions, bio weapons, and nano viruses wouldn't be affected by an anti-biotic drug, so in their drug resistance they should have a respective drug type like anti-viral or anti-histamine.
On that same note, getting some info about what each plagues special upgrades are for and seeing that impact in a pop up would be very cool/helpful. For example the prion's special upgrade makes "complex tasks more difficult" now I'm assuming that means it's harder to cure by doctors in infected countries, but there's no real indication of what it does
13 year old gamer - Well thought out
This app is super well thought out. The developer or this game seemed to have put a lot of thought into every little detail. Even the description of the difference levels and and the pop ups during the gameplay are entertaining and smart moves. This game doesn't target any specific age or gender either. My mom and my little brother both love playing this game and we give our plagues all kinds of funny names. Overall, the app is worth a lot more than what you pay for, so take the barging and run.
Thekooshball - Fun game to kill time
If you’re expecting “real” biological threats and how they might spread, you will be disappointed. This is a game, and has its own set of algorithms that it follows. I’ve played it for over a year or so and is one of the very few I would pay money for! It isn’t so much about how something would work in the real world, but rather how it works in the game. Play it for fun and you’ll figure out how the game works over time. It is a bit of a time sink though, each game will last for around 15 mins, not a quick play.
Shibby_Dude :D - Good, but a bit repetitive
Started off promising but kind of got annoying by the ending. I finished everything, even on brutal mode, but that’s just because there’s an easy way to exploit everything. Start in China, buy certain power ups, then once the whole world is infected, devolve everything and put all points in total organ failure. Boom, win every time. It was also kinda awkward that every sickness had the same pattern and upgrades. Last I checked, there’s not a prion disease that makes you vomit.
Those gripes aside, I’ve enjoyed it. But I would like a lot more variety between sicknesses
Moonbeatx - Update your game yo
I’ve had this game for as long as I can remember, even if I uninstall it, it somehow ends up on my phone again so I’ve let it be for a long time now. I’ve gotten everything unlocked and all the cheats done, literally everything. This game hasn’t had a decent content update in FORVER. Yeah people make scenarios but decent ones are few and far between. Maybe people are loosing interest. You made a new game and abandoned this one? Welp. I’m gonna keep the game because I’m sure I’ll play the zombie scenario for the 800th time when I’m bored in a year and I see this game in a junk folder. Maybe you could update it? New scenario? Sharknado, rabies, wmd Scenario, war, aliens, natural disasters, the ghosts from bird box, ANYTHING. Give us ANYTHING
Videogamers2 - Amazing game, and I have a few ideas.
First of all, this game, and Rebel Inc. are amazing. Worth every cent that I paid for them and the DLCs. I highly recommend this game and Rebel Inc. for anyone who is interested in a hyper-realistic, large-scale strategy game. Second, I have a few ideas for future development in this game series:
First: different things to this game that aren’t exactly diseases, like a rogue AI disease type.
Second, I would like to see a game where the player would try to spread a religion and/or ideology. (Like spreading Communism, Democracy etc., or a real or fictional religion)
Third, maybe a world or country-scale strategy game simulating a real or fictional war, involving much of the mechanics of Rebel Inc., on a much larger scale to simulate the stress and command pressure in a real-world war. All in all, I’ve never been let down or disappointed by any update in either game, and I hope that you keep making more awesome stuff like this.
Msoskxkdw - MOST AMAZING GAME EVER
I have been playing this game for more than a year. A lot of things have changed. This game has only gotten better over time. I have bought almost every purchase available in this app, because this game means that much to me. (I am buying all the gene codes tomorrow;). The custom scenarios are fun and unique, each plague has its own advantages and disadvantages, the special plagues are a blast to play, and the online scenarios are always quirky and fun. From the bottom of my heart, this game is probably the best game on the App Store. In my opinion, atleast ;)
Jonny Three Piece - Wow. Be careful you might be up until 3 a.m. paying this game, just like me.
Well thought out game. It causes you to think about the world around you in such a way that really makes you want to wash your hands after meeting new people. I really used to like animals, especially birds. Now I will never feed the ducks again. Could you please cover your mouth? Okay so the game makes you want to become an infectious disease just to see if you can do it! You know, wipe out the human race. And, not to toot my own horn, buttadid. Worth all 99 pennies.
ManCaptianCave - To James ( the developer ) Excellent game !!!!!
I really enjoy playing this game. It gets tough sometimes but all that means is that you need to change your strategy! I would rather the game be difficult than easy. Too many games are easy and you end up blowing right through them. I fully recommend getting this game, and purchasing some of the extras if you can.
Side note ! I greatly appreciated how James ( the developer ) explained why scenarios cost extra ! At least he took the time to explain why. Seemed very genuine to me !!!!!
TareUhhhhhh - Fun but bugging
I have loved this game for a long time but lately is been buggy. First thing is relatively innocent but there would be no healthy people left and the world is in the verge of all humans dying and a popup would say that the disease randomly infected a country...when that was clearly not the case. I just shrugged it off and continued my game.
Now, twice in a row I got the notification that there were no healthy people left in the world so I amped up the symptoms to kill everyone off and suddenly all of the countries have healthy people again and I get the message that the disease killed all hosts and left healthy people behind. Super frustrating bug.
theguy545 - You have to make a strategy
I love this game, and over the few months I've had it I've used most of my free time playing it and watching others play it. I haven't payed any money other than buying it, yet I have all but one disease type. I think all you have to do to experience all of the game is develop a strategy. Mine has evolved over time. This game is sooooooo worth it! Watching play through has helped to. So just get involved, set a goal, and keep trying. So much time has passed in me playing it.
DracoRexZ - Will always recommend
This game has always been such a superb simulation game that really gets you thinking, while also educating you on the basics of pathogens and epidemics. With a realistic premise, Plague Inc. really gets you thinking on, and I quote, “what would happen in real life?” If you ever get bored of the realism, the game also offers many scenarios and diseases such as the Neurax Worm and the Necroa Virus, which offer a more fictional, yet fun, approach. This game definitely deserves all of its popularity, which hopefully this upcoming “The Cure” update will bring more of!
Da D.J. - DNA
It’s a pretty good game to kill time with, but can be extremely frustrating. The player could be doing everything right to spread whatever you’re spreading (viruses, fake news, board games, whatever) but doesn't show when there’s apparently a lockdown on DNA points to help advance the spread. Casual is Normal and Normal is Brutal and Brutal is just about Impossible. I think DNA points should be earned more freely when 10 million + are being infected in one day. I’m sure there’s a strategy built in that I’m missing, and i don't want to win all the time, but holy mad cow give a brutha some breathing room!
UKNOWN NAME ????????? - Haters and new fans only
Hello haters and newcomers this game is good and treat it nice and if it’s hard for you choose a easier difficulty or keep practicing and it matters if you evolve it more it will be noticed more and lead to a faster cure so be careful of what you choose also no need to spend money on this game it doesn’t need extra things enjoy it the way it is and don’t hate on it if you lose on easy mode on your first try you just need to practice so have fun and -A loving fan of games and cooperation
ahmiin - Needs to be easier (and more realistic)
Now I may be just a newbie, but this game is hard. I couldn’t get a single win on normal mode, and I really wanna unlock all the other pathogens. Also, about the cure thing, I think popping the cure bubbles should not only slow down cure research, but reverse it as well. I also think there should be a transmission for skin contact. Where the hell is that? Also why does every country have unlimited money? Shouldn’t poor countries have very limited money, and not enough to research a cure? Rich countries may have a lot of money, but they shouldn’t have infinite money! That’s just unfair. Can you please fix this issue? I have an IPad, so I can’t get the Evolved version.
IDeserveHelp - Two problems.
Ok, this game is great, but there's two things. I got the game, bought shadow plague, deleted the game, (by accident) then downloaded it again, and there’s two problems. (The first is here.) I had to buy the game again. There's two dollars, WASTED. Second, when I went in the game, NOTHING was unlocked! I went to the store, and it said I had bought shadow plague, and I went back in the game thinking ohhhhh, YEAH! I LOVE THIS PLAGUE! It said I DON'T HAVE IT AND I NEED TO BUY IT. Fix this as soon as you can, please! I would hate for it to happen to other players/users! I hope you find this helpful.
ZackTheLamish - My Save data has been deleted.
This game is amazing. I only have had one problem. I bought the game and really enjoyed it for a while. I spent a lot of time beating all the normal diseases on brutal to the point of unlocking cheats and neurax worm. I did not purchase anything in game, besides the game itself. I was wondering if there is anyway I can retrieve my data. And no, I didn’t uninstall the game. I am aware that it deletes data when uninstalled, but I didn’t. Otherwise I love this game. It have very nice gameplay and is nice that you can unlock everything by just playing the game.
