Could be better

Its a good idea and the gameplay is alright, but it just gets too long and boring. Plus, you have to wait forever for your disease to spread unless you start out somewhere small, and once it does spread, its almost impossible to infest places like managascar (sorry for the poor spelling) so you have to start all over again. And it also doesnt really make sense that if you dont have any symptoms for your disease, why should it become such a problem that the world shuts down tons of their airports and shipyards? I can't wait for next version, hopefully it will be better.

pretty good concept but one major problem..

I turn off every single symptom that exists.. its completely invisable and harmless.. therefore it should just spread like crazy without being noticed especially when i make it waterborn and airborn and give it to rodents and insects and increase its resistance to everything to the max now tell me how the hell everything starts shutting everything down as soon as half the world gets it? and if madagascar shuts down their shipyard (which they seem to do with a drop of a hat) then you loose.. end of game.. common man its a good game but thats completely unrealistic.

"hrm.. the whole world is getting infected with this completely harmless virus that noone can detect and i shouldnt even know it exists and if people get infected with it.. nothing happens.. OMG WHERE ALL GONNA DIE SHUT DOWN THE ONLY MEANS OF TRANPORTATION THAT EXISTST ON THE WHOLE DAMN ISLAND!!"

My only issue with this game is the sheer difficulty of hitting Madagascar. It seems nearly impossible to genocide the planet unless you start there. That's enough to ruin the game every time I play.

It's alright.

I find it very fucking annoying how I do not upgrade any of the symptoms to keep my visibility at its lowest and upgrade my resistances to survive in countries that I infect. About that Time every country that I infected will shut everything down. Which is about 4-6 countries. And it will not let me spread any further to any other region. Tried different strategies to the same result. Major turn off.

Good Effort

Points for effort and premise, but this game is broken in so many crucial ways. If an island nation shuts down its shipyards and airports, you're fucked. If Madagascar closes its ONE SINGLE PORT, you're fucked. If they start developing a vaccine for a disease with no symptoms that they shouldn't even be noticing for that very reason, you're fucked. It really detracts from the strategy element of the game when winning it is dependent upon simply being lucky enough to infect all of the island nations.
