Great game, one thing

Skibidi toilet sigma rizzler on

This game is awesome, super fun, great time killer for car rides, or just in general. But, one super tiny thing that could be fixed. There should be a gamepass where it gives you cheats, or infinite points, but doesn’t count. Of course, not too cheap, maybe 20 dollars, or higher. If it happens, I will change from 4 stars to 5. (If I could I would change it to 6)

This is the best game. My favorite part is that you have to kill every human on earth like hi come on this has to be the best game ever.

I made everyone on earth sick and I’m proud of it! 😈


tyggugddbjgfghhgfg on

Well, it’s a very good game. I didn’t give it five stars though because well it’s too good for five stars. So never mind I’m giving it five stars.

Best game I’ve played

If I could give it 10 stars, I would this is probably one of the best games I’ve played

Good game(why one dollar)

Delete this game please on

Just good I don’t know anymore about this game but just good

“Ultimate Board Games” scenario is impossible

HappyRhino on

Even with all cheats enabled, playing on Casual difficulty, following every guide step by step, I cannot sell the game to 100% of the population. I’ve beaten every base-game and “special” pathogen on Mega-Brutal difficulty. This game is in my Top 3 mobile games of all time, but as I said, this scenario simply must be impossible on mobile. I certainly don’t see how anyone could possibly get a perfect score on Mega-Brutal without using cheats, let alone using cheats on Casual.

Cost money now??

HonBowlo on

Crazy that I’ve played this off and on for so many years and spent money on it, and now i have to pay to redownload it??😭

impossible to win without cheats

madschobel on

i've been playing for about four hours total, i have tried every strat. the cure moves impossibly fast and barely slowed even when you spend all your money to defend yourself. so there's no way to win without using cheats, which cost money. this game was nostalgic for me, i remember it being much easier growing up. it's such a shame that this game has become another greedy leach of an app, severely disappointed.
