Plague Inc.



    Plague Inc.'s review

    Published: 2012-10-05, by Peter Warrior.

    An original real time strategy game.

    • Free
    • Original and challenging
    • Visual and audio effects may be improved.

    "That's how started it all...cough"

    Without further ado: select the country or region where your first "patient zero" is living, preferentially a well communicated by seaports and airports one but with poor healthcare and an inefficient government. When you start you are a simple and innocuous wanna be disease, but you have DNA points to spend and evolve into something like a flu.

    Well, flu is what your government would say. You know you aren't a common flu. People will start to figure out that it (you) are something worse. However, if you have infected enough people you will have more DNA points to evolve faster than their efforts to protect themselves and fire a cure. That's the game: a strategy race in which you have to infect the more the better and evolve and change so any hidden lab can't find how to get rid of you and restore mankind its place as the dominant species on Earth. Meanwhile, governments will lock down airports and close borders, but you can always evolve into a stump air-transmitted, or spend your points in less obvious symptoms and be transmitted through birds or whatever.

    It's quite hard to explain how Plague Inc works, but it's really easy and fast to be learnt, it has a nearly infinite replayability. It starts somehow slowly, as all great things do, but when it gets out of hand a few minutes later, this mix of "Sim Virus" and real time puzzle becomes what it actually is: one of the most surprising, amazing and recommendable games for any mobile device.

    To cap it all, it's free. Ad supported and with in-app purchases, yet free. In-app purchase system serves to boost your progress and help and Endemic Creations, whom we are grateful for bringing this awesome jewel, though these upgrades can be obtained by mere playing. A 5/5, even when we'd like it was translated to more languages beside English, more spectacular graphics, , and cutscenes taken from live news and overall a more cinematographic scenery. Cough. Now, if you excuse me...cough, cough.
