Plague Inc. IOS.

Plague Inc. IOS.

“Plague Inc. is a unique mix of high strategy and terrifyingly realistic simulation. Can you infect the world?
Your pathogen has just infected ‘Patient Zero’. Now you must bring about the end of human history by evolving a deadly, global Plague whilst adapting against everything humanity can do to defend itself.” Ndemic Creations.

Honestly I couldn’t begin to tell you how much cash I have spent on apps for my various I-devices. Whether it is the kids’ iPods, me and wifey’s iPhone’s or our iPads – it seems like there is a new cool game or writing app or flavor of the week just waiting on the app store to rob me of my hard earned dollars. With credit cards and iTunes cards it’s so damn easy to idly spend money; without really noticing it. Ahhh it’s just $0.99, that’s nothing, no big deal. After about five or six hundred times it adds up! Anyway more to the point; I tend to lean toward the RPG, Sim or Strategy areas of the games categories, and being the horror addict that I am, I try to scoop up anything that looks good, scary, bloody, zombie (not Plants vs Zombies – I’m not that guy), crazy or otherwise. I purchased Plague Inc. quite awhile ago and have enjoyed countless hours of phone/iPad gaming since. The game is basically a global plague outbreak simulator. One can control the evolution of virus’s, bacteria, fungal spores, nano-plagues and more; tailoring them through a realistic gene based customization process. You want your virus to be highly effective in hot climates and transmitted by mosquito’s; sure why not. How about you strain of bacteria annihilating the western world through it’s specialization in drug resistance and cold climates; causing insanity and sores in the process, yep. The various combinations determine how lethal a plague is, or how fast and where it would spread. Good times. The game takes place on a map of earth with all the major countries represented. Realistic news tickers highlight world events while keeping you informed of the emerging threat of plague. The fun really starts when the global death toll begins to rise while the various countries begin to combat the plague. If your a fan of viral outbreak apocalyptic shit and have and extra $0.99 in your jeans pockets, then buy Plague Inc. Apocalyptic mayhem, you control! Plague Inc. on the App Store.

Next Up: buying another app, and another, and another, and another, and……
