I need cure mode!!

Lb aus w on

I love this game, mainly since I keeps me entertained for long periods of time, which makes it perfect for car rides. The only bad thing to say about this game is that in 2021, they introduced cure mode, and I loved it! But in 2022-2023, they took it away from you unless you paid a lot of money. I just think that if plague inc brought it back, I would play it way more. Other then that, it is the best game ever!!

No button to turn it off

Nicknames who cares on

Unclear what bottoms were for. Unexplained

New Plague Ideas

5 STARS-⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ on

So apparently there are types of Protozoa that can cause disease. The ones I’ve seen are considered parasites (which is already a plague in-game), but would you consider adding them as a new plague regardless, or do you think there are enough plagues in the game? There’s also these things called “Viroids” which are free strands of RNA that mostly infect plants, but there is a version that causes hepatitis D, so you can probably figure something out with that. Anyways, these are just ideas you can work with, & whether or not you go with them is aright with me, I’m just giving out some stuff I learned that you could add to this game I enjoy plenty.

I have played this game for years. This truly deserves its spot on the top strategic games leaderboard. This game was worth every penny. This game can actually be a massive challenge. So if you like challenging strategic games, this is definitely for you.

Fun game, but it’s extremely greedy

Mememeeeemeeml on

Fun game, but you literally have to pay for every single individual thing in the game, and even things that were once free you now have to pay for. It has become an extremely greedy game as a result, even after buying the game from the App Store.

Game was taken off my phone during covid…

Wesctv on

I cannot restore my purchases o n Pandemic Inc. and not they want me to pay 20 dollars for something I purchased before on my account. That alone is why the game gets 1 star

10/10 I would reccomend this game, I love the huge strategy parts and how hard it is. Honestly I’ve been playing for two years, and it’s worth TEH buck
