Potential for greatness

Ive read alot of the reviews so there isnt much for me to say that people havent already suggested. Definitely work on government response, at the beginning point I started my virus as airborne wih a cough and once 200000 got infected I turned off all symptoms so it had no lethality no infectivity and no visibility but the worlds govt's went ape shit anyways. Also, how does the point system work I destroyed the entire planet (including the infamous madagascar) in less than 100 days and I still wasnt anywhere near the top 50 list. This game concept is very fun and certainly has the potential for greatness, please continue with this concept you arent finished with it yet

good, but glitchy

its a fun game, but for some reason every time a message comes up saying that a vaccene is being developed the world map follows the mouse, i cant close the message window, so it effectively stops the game

Yet again, I come to review a game on newsgrounds, and I'm the only non-5 star review on the page...

Anyway, this is a good concept for a game, but with a serious flaw. The purpose of the game is to allow your disease to spread around the globe while keeping it relatively harmless, and then when in all territories you can have some fun, but spreading the disease everywhere is almost impossible because by the time the numbers of infected are high enough to have a reasonable chance of spreading the disease to another country, countries will start panicking, closing their borders, airports, shipyards etc., - and this is where the flaw becomes apparent, when you see everyone around the world panicking over a "disease" with no ill effects or symptoms!

Maybe the author of the game thought it would be too easy if the countries reactions to an undetectable symptomless disease was represented accurately, but the "solution" was to create a game where the winning tactic is to do very little/nothing as your disease slowly spreads, and even if you take it as slow as you can there's still less than a 50% chance of accomplishing the mission. I don't see that as fun, or an improvement on what the game could otherwise have been.

This game is like watching Usain Bolt getting to within an inch of the finish line, and then shooting himself in the head. It shouldn't be possible achieve a fail this close to victory.
