Evolve, Infect, Kill! Pandemic is a game where you get to evolve you own biological virus and wipe out mankind! Please read instructions on how to play the game! West Europe is completely able to be infected, its just hard. May be dangerous to play if you are epileptic. You get points based on number of newly infected people after a turn. For your first few turns you will not receive any points.

Wow, thanks to everyone for the awesome reviews, and thanks to NG for the Tank Award nomination! Many people have been wishing for more features. I'm happy to say I'm working on Pandemic 2 at the moment, and it's feature list is massive. The game will make this (the original) look small and shallow in comparison.

Very interesting the first time through

An awesome, original concept. Detailed implementation. Great music. However, it is too linear and based on randomness. To win, basically spend your first points removing fever and vomiting toggles, and then max out infectivity. Once you infect all zones of the map, you should have enough points to max out the lethality right away, and then just click on. Still, I absolutely love the concept.

Btw, the music, I swear its from Master of Orion II. I gotta bust out my CD later, see if I'm right.

Very good.. but unnerving

This is one of the few games I'll actually play multiple times so right there you have an addicting (rim shot) game.

I likd the style and the music... and I loved the fact that infectivity got a boost from 'sneezing' if 'body fluids' was on. That attention to detail in game mechanics is rare. Western Europe is the fun little challenge of the game though it's heavily random.

One question though... I know that airports glow red when they have been infected, but I saw them also glow green at times. What on earth does that mean?

MAKE A SEQUEL!

This was a great game, dude! Make another one! Feature ZOMBIES! Use the "Solanum infection!" (look up ZOMBIE SURVIVAL GUIDE on Wikipedia.)

GREAT JOB!

i'm lovin it.

just a couple things. in the infection area, you mispelled body fluids (fuilds) and...uhhh...oh. you should make a rollover effect for symptoms and infectivity things that shows how they will affect your infectivity, lethality, and visibility. maybe make the numbers red when the rollover is happening.

also (completely unrelated) i didn't know what to do about the violence thing, since i guess it's not really violent, but there's a LOT of dying.

good game. i look forward to more.
