Editors' Review

Who wants to save the world, really? Design and mutate a disease in the real-time strategy game, Plague Inc. with the goal of wiping out the world's population before it can find a cure.

Pros

Choose your infectious agent: Select your plague type, including bacteria and virus, select a country to infect, and you're on your way to spreading the disease across the globe before a cure can be found.

Mutate your disease: As your infection spreads, you collect DNA points you use to evolve your pathogen and increase its effectiveness and resistance to a cure.

Plan of attack: The game offers you a variety of methods for spreading your infection. You can choose where to infect based the location's climate, economic status, if it's a travel hub, or if it's densely populated, for example. Do you want a slow spreading infection that avoids detection till too late or one that quickly overwhelms the population? You have control over how quickly the disease spreads, its severity, and how lethal it is.

End game: As your disease spreads, you can follow its effectiveness country by country and view news headlines of the global response. Mutate your pathogen based on real-time global actions to counteract the world's growing defense.

Free to play: You can play the game for free, unlocking the standard plague types as you go. If that is too slow, you can unlock expansion packs for $1.99 each or buy everything for $14.99.
