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 nice, only a few suggestions

I'm sure they've been covered below my review, but I'd like to toss in my 2 cents as well :)

1. Effects of different upgrades should be listed. It takes a few times experimenting to get them so this isn't a crucial issue...just a minor annoyance I suppose.

2. The news pop-ups lag terribly. It may be that I was rushing through the game, but the news report of first "100 killed" lingered around way too long.

3. Perhaps a bit hard for a casual internet game, but a game like this screams for the AI to actively combat it (more than the public transit shutting down).

These are only a few suggestions, like I said this was a very good game. Got lucky in Western Europe (had 2 infected when the transit system shut down). Enjoyed it immensely, can't wait to see more!

Close the virus editor window when simulating. Open the editor back up when you want to edit ;P Thanks for the review !

It is too much fun. Anything this fun can't be healthy. It's like a disease (pun very much intended). The only country I hate is west europe. I killed everyone but West Europe. And one time my virus started there and it didn't spread at all. But otherwise a fantastic game. Kudos.

Blips responds:

The key to taking out west europe is making sure your visibility is low and you infectivity is high. Thanks for the review !

Doesn't seem to work

I read the reviews and at least one other person seemed to have this problem. My points never accumulated at all and then suddenly after clicking go several times I was on day 160 or so and I jumped from 3 points to several hundred. I tried again, and the points never accumulated at all. Very odd.

The virus evolution screen is designed to be closed when your pressing "go" so you can see the map and get information related to the progress of your virus. To see the points simply re-open the evolution screen.

More of the same please

Really great game. I was able to beat it pretty easily using the infect strategy that most of the people that beat this seemed to use. If you make a sequel (which I hope you do) I'd say just add more interactivity and options. Give the regions different attributes and allow us to choose where to start (perhaps North America is really hard to infect but can give you a lot of kills if you do). Also, I'd like to see some choice in the starting virus. Give us the option of some basic templates to start with, with varying advantages and disadvantages. Finally, I'd like to be able to develop attack strategies, things like "attack the waterways" or "spread to a certain area". Though I suppose viruses aren't that smart....
