The mobile version was a great game, this is even better. Neat visuals, funny news reports, funny symptom combos, morbid yet still lighthearted. Only thing that bothers me; I don’t care about the developer’s thoughts on Brexit. I don’t care if you’re for or against it, political pandering is universally obnoxious, because people don’t play games to have propaganda shoved down their throats.
I’ve had about 6-7 hours of solid fun and managed to beat all but 2 plague types (some normal, some brutal). The problem is that after that it gets boring and repetitive. In order to advance to a higher difficulty you need to unlock some genes that help imensly and to do that you need to grind. I’m not in the mood for that.
Was it worth it? Maybe not at full price, but it was fun.
9/10 of the scenarios are played the exact same way: Increase transmission while not activating any symptoms. Once you have most/all of the population, then pump symptoms and kill everyone. It’s very boring and unoriginal. Excluding the vampire and apes scenario, it was just the same thing over and over and over.
Seriously devs, put some variety in the way we can beat it ffs.
