Plague Inc. is a strategy game for mobile devices made by Miniclip and was initially released in 2012. The game is a virus simulator, where you develop a new infection and do your best to contaminate the whole world.
Graphics: Minimalistic 4/5
The Plague Inc. game is not about graphics. Most time, you either see the world's map, which shows the spread of your virus or see the upgrade and stats menus. Despite the fact there is not so much to look at, the visual part of the game is pretty nice. The map is getting red as the virus spreads, making it pleasant to watch, and the interface of upgrade menus is filled with interesting icons.
Gameplay: Spread It Fast 5/5
The gameplay of Plague Inc. is extremely addicting. To start the game, you have to create a virus and select a country where the first contamination will take place. After that, you watch the virus spread around the globe and select proper upgrades from time to time. The general mission is to contaminate the whole population of humanity with your virus. Despite the fact that all you do is selecting upgrade, the gameplay is very addicting and exciting: it is great fun to watch the infected people travel around the world infecting the others, the countries closing their borders and the humanity, desperately trying to invent a cure.
Controls: Simplest Controls for a Strategy 5/5
As we have already mentioned, you do not get to do much in Plague Inc. Controls are super easy, as all you have to do is to select upgrades. They are very easy to find, and all the effects are properly described in the upgrade menu.
Replay Value: Try to Get Them in New Zealand 5/5
The game also has huge replay value, as it offers space for strategic creativity. You can try different playstyles by choosing different upgrade paths and different starting points for your virus. If you have already mastered the game, you can try to set a high score for the fastest contamination of the world.
We strongly recommend the game both for strategy game fans and those who are new to the genre. It is very easy to learn and fun to play, so almost anyone will enjoy it. The game also gets interesting updates refreshing the gameplay, making it interesting to come back after a while.
