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.

Good, but can be improved.

I like the concept a lot, but there are a few things that could be improved. One nice addition would be a wider range of upgrade options to choose from, or a repricing of the existing options- you can potentially run out of things to spend points on pretty quickly. A more realistic representation of the transit system would be nice too (Western Europe has no major airports?), and maybe a finer breakdown of national borders. But it is a pretty fun, if grim, strategy game. 5/5

PS- you may want to rename the geographic areas. I am pretty sure that Eastern Europe doesn't extend halfway through China.

Changes and improvements will be made for any future sequel :P Thanks for the review !

Very fun, but completely impossible.

This is a very nice game, but because of western europes lack of an airport or water treatment plant, it's impossible to infect them once they close off public transit, or unless you start off in there. I would love to see this as an actually win-able game, but you might want to make the rewards cost more, or adjust the point gain rate. I gave violence a 10 because..well...basically we're killing all of humanity. Good job though


Blips responds:

Actually West Europe can be infected very easily. Just requires the correct strategy :P Thanks for the review !

This is getting ridiculous...

Every single time I play this game, I start doing the upgrades, the going, and everything goes well, but western Europe ALWAYS causes me to lose the game for some reason, and it's getting rather annoying.

I don't know how you beat this game, and there seems to be no true strategy involved. All you do is press Go, until you get enough points, and then buy more upgrades, and then press go, and then buy more upgrades again. IT NEVER WORKS.

*sigh*oh wells.

easy peasy

jus wait a few days till you get some points and continue to get rid of all your afflictions until there is only coughing left, then just increase your resistances until every country is infected then go all out and max your disease and you should have everyone dead by day 100! see eee-zzz
