This game is so addictive and fun to play. This game has hours of content for you to enjoy and makes you think about every move. I don't have any complaints yet either. The game is well done with very addictive gameplay. One of the most addictive games and highly recommended.

Mouse Doesn't Work

The game has mouse support until the game actually starts and then it won't let you pick a country or zoom in on the map at all. It just loads, gives you the tutorial and then stops. You can click on everything else like the disease, data, etc. but you can't actually play the game. Really hope this gets fixed.

I love it!!! I discovered a secret to the Simian Flu and how to pass it. It was easy once I actually thought about it. I'm excited to see the newest expansion plague.

Awesome and FUN yet educational and challenging!!

I am a medical professional and I find this game so fun and entertaining. It challenges me at high levels and I've learned info about disease transmission and you have to be proactive!! Haven't found anything substantial that I don't like yet

Good time killer

I have it on my phone. I wouldn't say it's great but it's a good time killer.

It's a fun game, though due to the inability to deselect genes I am stuck with a high chance for mutation on virus, where mutation makes things a lot more complicated. So now because I am nor far enough in the game to use other genes I can either keep playing the same level over again in hopes that something changes, or pay to win. Which honestly sucks.

The game is good. It's just that I didn't spend $2 just to open a market place to spend even MORE cash in order to advance in the game.

This my kind of game! Easy to begin, hard to master, lots of strategy, and good depth. Music is appropriately dark and fits the mood of the game perfectly. Well worth the $1 price. I've only played for a short while but so far so good.

Amazing Game

Been playing it for years. My only wish is that I could import all my progress from Google Play instead of starting over from scratch.

Purchased it but it will not install.

Have tried about 20 times. Crashes on download after downloading about 350kb no way to get my money back. It's been two days and no help from game developer and will not install, gets an error every time I try.
