New Addiction… Destroying the World!!!
It’s been a log time since I’ve played a game that brought out my most creatively world ending, mass-murdering & apocalypse ensuing side… and inspired a roaring “BWAHAHAHAHAHAHA” to bellow out.
The game bringing out the best-of-the-worst in me is the addictingly awesome Plague Inc. (FREE or $.99). You begin naming your special disease and entering the world in your country of choice with a very basic plague. As you start infecting the masses, and grow in strength, you can choose which “adaptabilities” to start evolving with (how it’s carried, how tolerable it is to elements like heat/cold, how strong it is against antibiotics, etc.). If you get big enough the CDC will take notice and begin working quickly towards your demise. From there it’s a rapid bob-and-weave to make sure you stay one step ahead of the human race. The goal? Total world decimation, of course. It’s fun to watch the little boats and planes carry your special concoction all over the world… and even allows you to speed-up or slow-down time depending on your needs. World domination on a microscopic scale has never been quite so addicting.
Rolling into a 5-day vacation (for most of us) you’re in dire need of something new and exciting to pass the time. This is it!!! Download on iTunes HERE, Android HERE. Most importantly, have fun destroying the human race!
Here is their official description:
Can you infect the world? Plague Inc. is a unique mix of high strategy and terrifyingly realistic simulation.
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.
Brilliantly executed with innovative gameplay and built from the ground up for iPhone & iPad, Plague Inc. evolves the strategy genre and pushes mobile gaming (and you) to new levels. It’s You vs. the world – only the strongest can survive!
