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.

DEATH!

While killing man kind towards the end of the game, if you lookat some places and see like 3 people left, think about how much that would suck!
Your the last person in north america!

Very nice

That was a very sneaky game. There a few things in the upgrade menu that unless you look at them closely and think about them, you won't pick up on how to kill everyone. I know how to access west europe, and no I won't wreck it for everyone. I just want to say: Think about the upgrades. It actually does what it says and it's not always the best idea to have maximum visiblity.

Awesome game!

This game is really creative and original. I really am hoping to see a #2 that is both longer and has more options. In my opinion it was WAY to easy once you find out the "secret." This was definitely nice to play though, It was unlike anything else I've really played. Keep up the awesome work!

Creepy.

I dig this game. It looks pretty, it sounds pretty, and the gameplay is... whoah. And honestly, who hasn't dreamed about wiping out the entire population of planet earth? In fact, if there is anything to complain about, it's the somewhat static interface and predictable gameplay.

I notice there are a lot of complaints about difficulty, especially spreading your plague into or out of west Europe. After playing a couple of times, I find that you can avoid this problem by reducing the lethality and visibility of your virus until it's spread to all continents. In fact, "winning" this game is very easy once you understand how the engine works.

I've written up a simple recipe that will always result in a full "victory". The final time varies between 60 and 120 days, thus giving scores around 6000. It also works best if you don't start in west europe. Here goes:

remove human only
skip 16 days
add airborne
skip three days
remove vomiting
skip six days
add waterborne
skip one day
remove coughing
skip one day
remove sweating
skip one day
remove fever
skip two days
remove sneezing
skip one day
add body fluids
skip one day
add to incubation period
skip two days
add to incubation period
skip one day

skip one day
add to survivability outside host
skip two days

skip one day
add to resistance to heat
skip one day
add to resistance to moisture
skip two days
add to resistance to moisture
skip one day
add to resistance to moisture
skip until virus has spread to entire world
add all symptoms (if you can't afford them all at once, then start with the most lethal and add the rest as points start dropping in)
click until game ends
laugh
rinse, repeat

Thanks for wasting an idle hour and a half for me.
