Can't give you too much since it still needs a lot of balancing. There's still issues with being able to infect ALL countries. Since Madagascar is the hardest and will almost always shut down at the slightest hint of a problem. Also, the point system takes forever and you never get enough to fully upgrade your virus. Even with getting tier 4 symptoms, it takes forever to get the points for it. If you make a third, you should really consider making a lot of changes to your approach. Still a great game, just needs more work.

The music was kind of annoying. I didnt like how i had to wait, i don't know, it was kind of strange just sitting there and waiting so i could make my virus spear in diffirent ways and make people puke all the time.

It would be good if we could click into a certain area rather than dragging the box. But the thing that let it down was that it wasn't a game. you just sat and waited.

However the effort put into this must of been out of this world.

Really boring, I get that you were trying to make it more realistic, and even hope that people will appreciate this, but I found 30 minutes of hard work being sunk into the gutter just because the people found a vaccine, or closed the ports, seriously, let us speed it up more, OR EVEN skip whole years of time just to get the points and use them. I don't know what I hated exactly about this game, but for some reason it was there, I'm giving you a five anyway, becuase I love the game, but Ic an';t think of what i hate.

Good game, but has one of the most annoying

glitches ever, if you are using the mini map to look around and the message saying a vaccine is being developed you can not close the pop up or do anything but look around the map. Meaning you have to start all over again, which is pretty annoying. There are a few other problems, for one Madagascar is almost impossible to infect, as a matter in fact I think the only time I got it infected was when the disease started there, also if a region closes it's border, airports, and shipyards, it becomes impossible to infect.
The problem I have with that is one when that happens you can't wipe out the planet, and two there are insects, rodents, water ways, and winds that can carry the disease. Basically what I'm saying is the govs should only be able to sow the spread of the virus, not stop it completely, at least not without a vaccine.
I think you should go back to the idea you had with EoM and have the vaccine be the only way to prevent infection but even then allow the disease a chance to evolve, which would cause the vaccine meter to reset, the players would e able to do this by putting a certain number of evolution points towards becoming immune or it could just be like a lottery where you bet one point and have a small chance of getting immune. That way the player would have something to do once they've infected most of the earth.
As a side note the population should rise and not stay the same the whole game. this is really an enjoyable game, but it does have a few flaws, but there nothing you can't sort out. BTW the reason I gave this a five is because of the horrible glitch I mentioned, that definitely would make this a more enjoyable experience.
