its a good game but..
there are way too man flaws to give it higer score than a six. sorry.
I love it, the only issue I have is that even when there are no dead people, high infection rates will cause global hysteria and lock down those hard to reach places. Very annoying, that.
My deaseesese is called homocronicbreastcancer
IT WIPED OUT EVERYONE except one person in north america (me)
It's good and all but...
There's no stratagy in it. It's too easy. Even on the normal mode. All you do is (spoiler) work up resistances then means of infection then leathality. It's too simple.
The biggest problem I have with this game is that the poorer countries and other countries that cannot manufacture their own resources can lock down all trade yet somehow still survive. If a simple economy system was implimented as well that stopped the countries from staying locked for good or have a chance for some people to slip between the boarders or smuggle goods into countries then the game would be far simpeler yet have the final dimension of realism.
Parasites are easy targets inside the body but outside are highly resilient. They are more common in 3rd world countries.
Viruses are immune to most drugs but are susceptible to the environment. They are more common in modern society.
Parasites also carry bacteria or viruses.
Some dimensions to add.
Incubation periods. High ones reduce visibility but make it more vulnerable to drugs and less lethal.
Economy system of some kind.
For viruses: Enveloped or unenveloped
For bacteria: Mobility levels, Anaerobic or Aerobic,
For parasites: Carried disease, Parasite size, Parasite resistance
Public Panic? A possible idea, paniced people spread viruses faster. Martial law stops this.
I know that it's alot of work to make a game and I congratulate you for doing so. I'm just offering suggestions.
As far as the game goes it is very good. I did manage to win but I was lucky and started in Madagascar.
