nice game

but relys far too much on luck. i do realize though that if we had a more direct control that the game would be far too easy. i'm really not sure how to improve this game without severely damaging it. but there is almost no control as to what happens or where your disease goes.

I'd have given this a 5 and a 10/10 if it weren't for the bugs regarding visibility and infection a few people mentioned below.

ALSO MADAGASCAR IS IMPOSSIBLE TO INFECT. It's ridiculous. I watched the screen for almost half a hour and NO BOAT EVER WENT THERE. This game isn't hard, it's just rigged to be impossible to fully complete.

Flawed, boring, entertaining.

The novelty of being able to watch as your baby wipes out huge chunks of the world's population wore off after about five minutes, but I played it until the end because I was expecting to win after the other countries opened their borders back up. I say this because diseases of all kinds do NOT die out just because they're out of living bodies to infect. What SHOULD have happened is, once everyone was dead, the remaining nations begin to attempt to clean up the mess only to be infected themselves. But Nooo, this game only cares about current infected, not the actual lifespan of the infection. Ah, well. At least I took out most of the planet. Also, my disease being both airborne and waterborne didn't seem to make a difference in infection nations which had sealed their borders, even though that should have worked and I should have gotten at least a foothold. Too narrow in scope, boring after you've developed the perfect disease, but fun to watch.

As you can see, Madagascar appeared 0 times in those 100 games. Madagascar also happens to be the hardest country to infect, as it'll close its harbor even if a diseases visibility is 0 and only a few thousand people globally are infected.

As ChaosKnux has suggested, you should allow the starting location to be selected; it wouldn't make the game less challenging, rather, less frustrating, as winning is based purely on the off chance a person's starting location is Madagascar or the disease spreads to Madagascar within the first couple minutes of gameplay. In my opinion this is the only flaw in this game, but it is a MAJOR flaw.
Hundreds have complained about this issue, but the update failed to address it. I presume this game isn't going to be updated again, but this game could be a huge hit-- something worth buying, if only its flaws were worked out and it was elaborated a bit.
