Plague Inc. Mutation 15 Discovered - The Mad Cow Disease Update

WARNING - Meat, dairy, fruit or vegetable - no food is safe as a new variant of Mad Cow Disease breaks out in the latest Plague Inc. update!

Three new official scenarios have landed and each one offers exciting new challenges for Plague Inc. players:

Mad Cow Disease
Evolve an entirely new variant of the infamous prion and infiltrate the world’s food supply! Is now the time to go vegetarian?

Where Is Everyone?
Almost everybody in the world has mysteriously vanished and nobody knows why. How will your outbreak spread when there are so few people left to infect?

Flight Club
Does the idea of Greenland getting a major airport excite you? If so this is the scenario for you!

Also included
We’ve implemented a few new achievements, a Featured Scenarios menu and some minor bug fixes.

Hotfix 1.15.2 - Adjustments to difficulty and events in new scenarios
Hotfix 1.15.3 - Fixed issue where Government Actions were not firing correctly in Mad Cow Disease Scenario

Oh my god this is my most number one most favorite creative plague game 🤮🤢☣️🆚☢️🆘
Fitnesswithlindsay on 3/22/2018
So the game is great in all 5 star. So here’s the story I bought the full game with all the scenarios and I got a new device and tried to restore my purchase and it won’t give me it back
Soooo cool
Techsavvy999 on 3/20/2018
Soooo cool
kill them all...
Shinka RX8 on 3/20/2018
let God sort them out.
I got a idea
CollinMathew on 3/20/2018
I got a idea for a new mode. You should make a mode where instead of trying to spread the disease and kill the whole population you make a mode where you have to try to cure the disease. So basically a opposite version of the game.
Needs improvement
Petertheawesome4 on 3/20/2018
I think the game is very fun addictive and strategic. But could be improved to be more realistic. Perhaps making a certain update making it so people can give birth, people can die of natural causes, boats and planes can crash or sink (potentially killing some people at random amounts) and make it an ability that should be upgraded quickly that allows the pathogen to transfer from women to their children that they give birth to. Also add more airports and seaports because I find it highly unlikely that America has only one airport and one seaport. Make it so that countries with less money are harder to spread the cure to. Because it’s highly unlikely that Saudi Arabia is leading the global cure effort. Anyway like I said before I love the game just that it can be more realistic.
Love It!
Puggam3r on 3/18/2018
This game is really cool! It's a pretty messed up concept, but it's fun to play either way
Awesome game!
Mongo1137 on 3/17/2018
It makes you think more than most games. It’s a good strategy game and the expansion packs really open it up!
One of my top 10
SuperStar4795 on 3/16/2018
I rate this game five stars because it is fun and because it is overall amazing Best $.99 I ever spent
Hunter5275 on 3/16/2018
There is a bug with the cure research, causing it to not be affected by anything. High deaths won’t slow it, research won’t slow it. NOTHING WILL SLOW IT! This makes it impossible to play at brutal level. This bug needs to be fixed IMMEDIATELY!
Fun but...
Mo¥ on 3/15/2018
Fun game, fun to try different combinations. But the expansion packs nickel & dime you. These should be included in the purchase of the game.
Pretty sweet
poliocough on 3/15/2018
Yeah there is some “lack of realism” to bicker about - on the one hand, they cure diseases very quickly. On the other hand, no one has natural immunity - which isn’t the case with many real world diseases! Also I think if you get the population down from 7 billion to like 5,000 you should get some recognition for being “close enough” :) The zombie pack is so awesome! But the apes and vampires are getting a bit too unwieldy to wrap one’s mind around. Overall - well with the money!
Needs a complete unlock purchase
Bones3010 on 3/15/2018
This is a great and imaginative game. Difficult but not so much as to take away the fun. I actually bought it near when it was first released and the updates are regular and impressive, but the thing that bothers me about any game with in-app purchases is that it there are so many individual in app unlocks, etc. that it's completely unreasonable to expect a customer to purchase them all and on top of the original app purchase. Yes, you can unlock them through gameplay but it is very difficult and/or time consuming to do so. I would consider a full 5-star review if there was a single in app purchase that unlocks all additional content for a single REASONABLE price, or better yet, eliminate in apps altogether and just charge up front when you buy the game and offer the player the ability to cheat and unlock expansions at will. I understand that the devs need to eat and should be paid for their content, but as a mobile app all the added content available is too unreasonably priced when you can buy an HD console game for about the same price once you've purchased everything currently available at the time of this review. In short, great game, great developers, but limited in replay value unless you spend even more money for all of the expansions and unlocks. Please offer a better option and I'll absolutely give this 5-stars.
Just needs iPhoneX support.
CYNtiedan on 3/14/2018
Overall a great game.
Morbid and fun all at the same time !!!!
Lumberjack8541 on 3/13/2018
This game actually is a ton of fun while boosting one’s understanding regarding the spread of disease and infection.
This game is so addictive
EmoChic1314 on 3/12/2018
I’ve had it for year never gets old
DNA problems
undertalefan91 on 3/12/2018
I have really loved the game and I always will but it’s come to my concert that it’s weird that from your 4th devolve and on you lose DNA this makes it so hard to save up my DNA and I hope you can remove this weird feature
Wow. Be careful you might be up until 3 a.m. paying this game, just like me.
Jonny Three Piece on 3/12/2018
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.
WOULD be fun IF....
DocRichie on 3/11/2018
Would be fun if.....the DNA rewards didn’t dry up. Even in “easy” mode, it stops giving you DNA and finds a cure in well under a minute. I’ve tried multiple strategies and same outcome. Seems to me like it’s just trying to force you into spending extra $$ to gain an upper hand.
Nickle and diming
Clide005 on 3/11/2018
I purchased this gam almost three years ago and got the zombie and nurax worm update for free. I got an iPhone and decided to buy the game bc the value was so good previously. I'm guessing the devs sold out. It's sad to see a 5 dollar game that you use to get for two dollars trying to be sold for 12. I'm sure the bit of extra cash helps you live with it. Bummer
Awesome game.
Ap092988 on 3/11/2018
So much, so addictive.
This is supper fun
Sergey in Chicago on 3/11/2018
The game is great and I am sure that it will get better
Fun game, too many alerts
Robie91486 on 3/10/2018
The game is interesting and changes to give different challenges. The alerts that pop up make it difficult to continue playing.
Update please
Jackwin720 on 3/10/2018
Will there be an update to take full advantage of the iPhone X screen? Really like the game so far.
The game is a pay to win. on 3/10/2018
Literally to get far you need to pay for a lot of packs it annoys me
patrishoee on 3/10/2018
Good game
Good game but i’am a major issue
Guysaboss on 3/10/2018
I can no longer custom plagues.
I love this game
Club penguin girl on 3/9/2018
This game is fun and great I hope we can see more in the future!
Mondieman on 3/9/2018
Played one round and I was hooked and immediately bought most of the downloadable content! Worth getting!
SamCatAndTheCrew on 3/9/2018
This game is so fun and you can play it on the go with no WiFi! This game is one of the if not the best strategy game iv ever played! Of course it is not realistic, but how cares? It’s still a fun game and is soooooo worth that dollar I paid for it! XD
Great game
Sidthekid2112 on 3/9/2018
I am having the best time playing this game
Amazing app
Thomas_Allbee on 3/8/2018
The only downside is that there is no iPhone X/10 optimization, if there were it would defiantly be 5 stars
Only 4 Survivors???
Alalacndnjdjxjjdjxkksks on 3/6/2018
I love the game BUT it’s not fun when you spend an hour playing just to have only 4 people somehow not get infected.
Cool cool
RomanBurke on 3/6/2018
Cool cool
Unlimited DNA!
ccook87 on 3/5/2018
Haven’t played this in a few years but I used to have a perk on here that gave me unlimited DNA for sandbox fun. What happened to it?
fun but chalenging
Luda.kornel on 3/5/2018
i like this game but its, i am kind of a noob thought. But we all get better right?
Kronosis8321 on 3/4/2018
Meh, if you want to fully enjoy the game be ready to spend money. Been stuck on 3rd lvl, fungus and lose every time, not sure how when there are zero healthy people and they create a cure?
MissLady314 on 3/4/2018
A perfect way to pass time when you have nothing better to do!
Player7562 on 3/2/2018
I love this game. Needs more realism, but despite that, it’s awesome. But once, there were zero healthy people and I still lost. I think that you should make it so that when there are zero healthy people, you win. Thanks for making this game!
I can't restore my purchase for everything it won't let me and I'm so frustrated right now!
Longhorn c======3 on 3/2/2018
I need a refund then
There is a typo
J0S1AHR0X95 on 3/2/2018
I just beat Simian Flu, and there is a typo in the message displayed when you win. It says “Human civilisation has been shattered by. . .” Civilization is misspelled. Everything else about the game is perfect, it just bothered me, so I had to point it out
Anonymous HY on 3/2/2018
Everyone who is complaining about game being too hard, you aren’t playing the game right, and if you really struggle with it so much, then go look up some guides. Games pretty easy tbh. And everyone is saying that it’s unrealistic and I think that’s what makes it more fun and challenging. I’ve beaten mega brutal on every single disease without much trouble, and I think the unlimited resource and funding made the game strategy harder and more playable. Because think about this, if you could mutate a disease however you want, to the point where it can be immune to antibiotics, develop dozens of symptoms, and infect in almost all known ways, then why can’t the world have unlimited resource, fund, and knowledge to cure against you? Honestly, this is not a hard game and if you were to play some more and figure out patterns, you would actually beat mega brutal on all disease with ease, the only one I struggled bit with was Prion Virus, cause it didn’t have exceptional specialties as others.
Incredible and Challenging
Firestorm363475326863378 on 3/1/2018
There are lots of people complaining about the difficulty of the game. Yea, the Megabrutal difficulty is unrealistically hard, but it’s far from impossible to beat with practice and skill. Besides, Brutal mode is there for people who want realism. Overall a great game that doesn’t deserve the complaints it’s seeing.
Great game
Dibbie2255 on 3/1/2018
I’m always having fun playing this game.its worth getting.
Good but..
FicSci on 3/1/2018
I love this game and the strategy that comes with it, but the resources that countries have and the speed at which cures are developed are very unrealistic. That aside I love the challenge they bring to the game. However, and many of my brutal play throughs I have noticed that there is sometimes a bug where if you fast forward while your disease is infecting one last country, and had lethality (all of which were virus runs) then it can stop all infections completely. I went from 60,000 infections a day to 0 just because I fast forwarded
Make it more realistic
bigmike0 on 3/1/2018
such a great game but keep it up to date, also I infected like 3 billion of the world while they were finding cure and I didn't get DNA points, and I played this game with cheats and upgraded all my types of my disease to the strongest and still got 1 start out of 5 and low points!! how do I win this game even with cheats I can't get high score, just make it more realistic as possible.
Need to Update for IPhone X
Helpful hero on 2/28/2018
Great game! Don’t listen to the people online and their opinions of the game. It’s just that, and opinion if you like the concept of the game get it. If not don’t. What can say is once updated for iPhone X I will play it again.
