Great game
Dee wideman on 6/22/2018
I love this game it would be cool if there was a mode to stop the plague instead of make it.
Reet O on 6/22/2018
Amazing mechanics and gameplay!
nowolf noram reallyalpha on 6/21/2018
I’m not sure what happened to the app but on my iPhone 8 on current iOS the game just opens and crashes every time
Great game terrible sound
Uuhhhgfdrr on 6/20/2018
It has a awful terrible ringing high pitched sound that comes on and off. Honestly I can’t emphasis enough how terrible the sound is. So I play without sound but I would like to have the sound for the bubbles. Please remove the ringing. The rest of the game is still good
My opinion
K-banana on 6/20/2018
There should be a feature where, the more population you kill or weaken, the more bottles break (in the menu of each country), lowering the research budget and government strength
Disappointed Buyer 577 on 6/19/2018
Worst game ever! It’s too hard! I spent more than an hour infecting everyone and in a split second the cure is at 100%. I don’t like this game nor recommend it!
Difficult but fun
GirlWarrior06 on 6/19/2018
This game is so fun fun and it takes a lot of skill and strategy. Even on the easiest mode, it is hard to kill the entire population because the cure works faster than the disease. It make me think of if this were to actually happen in real life. I love this game, and I can’t wait to to see what happens with it.
Needs Multiplayer
90807437 on 6/19/2018
It is very fun to play and I would advise getting it but the developers should add in multiplayer like they have on P.C
TheBitman on 6/18/2018
Crashes a lot for me but when it doesn’t it’s a fun game.
Inaccurate world map
Superteepolar on 6/18/2018
I love this game so much however, the world map is very inaccurate. Hawaii and small islands are missing and Korea is not divided in north and South Korea and lastly they tried to combine all Southern Asia counties into South Asia.
Who needs sleep?
kallistimn on 6/17/2018
Currently playing through all vectors on Brutal. I love this game.
Great fun even if you lose, very fair pricing
WRS15743 on 6/17/2018
I’m not a hardcore gamer, and I don’t enjoy a lot of strategy games but I like this one. Easy to learn, fun to experiment with. And even when you lose, it’s still fun because you can complete with your score history to try and keep your virus going more days each time. I like how the developer keeps this updated, and I think I the way they’ve monetized it is very fair. This is one of the best games I’ve tried in the App Store.
Was a good game
He's a sniper on 6/15/2018
The game is fun for 3 to 4 days but once you complete everything you’re left with a choice buy the expensive expansions or buy 3 new games for the same price. I would give it a 5 but expansions are to much the game isn’t even free!
Love this game!!
Hoodedimp144 on 6/15/2018
I’ve been a huge fan of Plague and have had a blast playing with each virus, and with the release of the new plushies, I can’t wait to order one.
Great game
Coolshadow36 on 6/14/2018
God game
Мусор ебанный
Who'sMom?? on 6/14/2018
Как на компе все оптимизировать так это сделали, а на мобильную версию хер положили походу... Нулевой баланс....
ddskillz on 6/14/2018
I got this today and LOVE IT!
Not bad
Strudelhouse on 6/13/2018
Tried it ‘slow’, always lost to the cure. Tried it ‘fast’ (rising lethality), list because Greenland was still alive. 🙄 4 Stars because it was a buck, and I’m not done trying to win. I’m sure I’ll figure it out eventually.
Deeper game than you epect
iRaptor59 on 6/13/2018
A lot of fun
Ethan Arnone on 6/13/2018
Just because its on mega brutal doesn't mean make the game as virtually unrealistic as possible. Are you kidding me?! I'm pretty sure when 3/4 of the population is dead research isn't going to be skyrocketing
Oh yea
Dr Vile on 6/12/2018
Very sweet game
One of the best strategy games on the Internet
Withery Soul on 6/11/2018
I don't know where to start because there is so much to talk about! The reaction engine for the countries is one of the best I've ever seen! And it offers micro transactions but it doesn't encourage them (EA). And the sounds just make it more realistic. Don't ask.
11 teen out of ten
Boby bill juonot the thirds on 6/10/2018
Don’t listen to them haters all they play is my little pony and don’t know what a good games is so... Memes are dank and the games is great
Needs fix
Luke$$$$&$ on 6/10/2018
Ok what happened is that the game would not update then I deleted it and try to re download and it says I need to re purchase the item and I got super mad so I re got it and I try to restore my purchases and it would not work cause I had the Necrosis virus and it would not be re downloaded but all my stats saved and I still see my stats for the necrosis virus so please give me back my stuff that I bought thanks!
AngeryMan69 on 6/10/2018
This is a good game, I enjoy it a lot. BUT JESUS ITS HARD. This isn’t that much of a problem to me, I usually like challenges. But it took me about 12 hours to beat fungi. ON NORMAL. I totally recommend this game to people who have high tolerance and patience levels like me.
DubsOwl on 6/9/2018
This game is able to simulate controlling epidemics. What the game is about is where you are controlling and creating a disease in a race against the world, trying to develop a cure for it. If you win games in Brutal, Mega Brutal or Normal you get a new type of disease until you unlock all twelve standard plagues. If you win all the standard plagues in Brutal, you win the special plagues: Neurax Worm, a disease where you try to enslave the world with a species of worm that can control minds (oldest special), after the Worm came Necroa Virus, a plague where you try to destroy humanity by creating a disease that turns people into zombies, which will decay at some point, then there’s Simian Flu, a disease based on the virus in Dawn of the Planet of the Apes (whilst infecting apes to make them intelligent). The most recent one is Shadow Plague, a disease where you control a blood-sucking vampire who spreads a mysterious pathogen that cause “mass psychosis in victims” of the Plague. According to an article on App Store, they’re making a new special that has aliens in it. It’s a great game, though there are some problems. First off, there is another app called Plague Inc. Scenario Creator, which costs 2.99. The only thing you get from that is an app that allows you to make your own scenarios and your cleverly able to play the Special diseases without having to pay for it (though you can’t earn any special achievements for the disease or earn any special genes). It isn’t worth the cost. Also, NDemic Creations doesn’t allow you to publish your scenarios for others to play. PLEASE ADD THAT! It’s kind of a rip-off. The price should also be lowered (or even should be free maybe). Also, the game isn’t as realistic as the developers claim it is. Please make the game actually be “a realistic model of reality”. If you do, I’ll give it 5 stars rather than 4
I think the game broke
Ed1253 on 6/9/2018
I’m trying to use the new mode but is just leaving me at the play menu still love the game
Plague inc:one of a kind
AllSonic Wave on 6/9/2018
So I bought this game just a few days ago and let me tell you, if you like these types of games trust me you’ll want to have this one.
If I could rate higher, I would!!
Enemyguitar2957 on 6/9/2018
This game is so good and has so much to offer. The main game plagues are somewhat difficult but the more you play and strategize, they become child’s play even on Mega Brutal. The game also has developer/fan-made scenarios and even has a custom scenario builder. The community of this game is amazing and never ceases to amaze with the things they come up with. In my personal opinion, this is on of the best games ever created. I hope you consider this as you hit that “BUY” button ;)
Good idea horrible code
wacafla on 6/8/2018
Warning once you run this app, the only way to exit is by restarting your phone.
I was dumb with time.....
Kittens yay on 6/8/2018
I love this app and this is one of the best games ever. However, due a completely stupid thing I have done, the timer to download scenarios doesn't work because I set the time too far ahead. I now have to wait until 2032 until my scenario downloads thing will let me download it. fix this dumb problem I created and I won't do it again
I’ll give this 5 stars for a reason!
gaming ivory on 6/8/2018
Thanks for the producers for this spectacular game challenging but very satisfying and fun!
Jboje on 6/7/2018
I absolutely love this game. One of the only titles that I actually talked myself into the in-app purchases!
Very Great Offline game
Itizeskagxnsnava on 6/7/2018
This game is so fun to play when your driving spot some other thing with no WiFi , it really fun to play for like 3 hours and is just perfect I guess so ... yeah .
Always fun
Philosopher Rogue on 6/7/2018
I keep coming back to this game. It never gets old, and they keep adding new stuff to play with!
This game is AWESOME!!!
Freddy Foxy Bonnie Chika on 6/5/2018
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)
Camira The Great on 6/5/2018
Can’t believe I’m having fun destroying the world. Still my favorite game though!
Great game
Raindrop II on 6/4/2018
Great game, very challenging. Definitely makes you think ahead. Also love the Ultimate Board Games scenario description :P
Impossible to beat
hotsauce 12345678554 on 6/4/2018
It is impossible to beat fungus on normal I’m very sad about that 😢 please make it possible
The mechanics are somewhat enjoyable, but the theme is appalling...
M0ToR on 6/4/2018
I’d really prefer not to wipe out the humanity, but for example to do the opposite - starting with an infected world - fight to cure it. I don’t enjoy seeing what I’m doing in this game and I don’t enjoy winning. And yes, I know it’s a game, I’ve played some of the most violent games on PC and enjoyed doing terrible things there when it was necessary, but I prefer to be the good guy on the macro level, only then I can really enjoy the gameplay.
McNugget Supreme on 6/3/2018
Simian flu is currently buggy, can’t use my rampage ability even after upgrading and simian nuero-genesis didn’t destroy the lab in my starting counrty
Amazing game!
YouTriedAndFailed on 6/3/2018
I love the game, there’s so much content and hours of fun at my finger tips (plus domination and destruction of all man kind) but one concern I have is the scenario creator. I wanna play my custom scenarios but I can’t get them to work. If it wasn’t for this, it would be five stars, best game I’ve played in a long long time.
Great Game, But Death Is Way Too Often
Humanity is weak on 6/3/2018
The game is awesome, and I've beaten it several times. It would be nice if people wouldn't die so quick...
Some Things that Would Be Cool
Officer_Cloud on 6/3/2018
GREAT 10/10 game, I would just record adding a mode where you fight AGAINST the disease. Otherwise, amazing work and keep it up.
foar103 on 6/2/2018
Ok so you have to buy the game and still pay for a lot of the content. It's ridiculous, but some things like the custom scenarios are just amazing❤️👌🏽
Worst game ever
Jarrodemerald on 6/2/2018
Worst game ever
Jebb bush on 6/2/2018
I understand that there is a paid and free version of the game. I do not get why that if I pay money for a game on my phone I do not get all the ways to infect. Like I didn’t buy this game for a slightly better experience than the lite one.
Why you dont add arabic language???
Hussein-IRAQ86 on 6/1/2018
Baaaaaad no arabic language
Very realistic!
BroBro221 on 6/1/2018
This game is surprisingly realistic with the symptoms, transmissions, and so on. This is a really fun game to play, and it is well made. It is quite satisfying to watch the countries fill up with red. The special plague types look amazingly fun, and I plan to get them soon!
Cjraker on 5/31/2018
It’s beautiful and strategic so learn how to play and don’t rant about the difficult I just want one thing! I want to see my plauge in 3-D like in the computer and I’ll be happy Thanks for the game and thanks for the royal update
