I got this idea from when Amberose did reviews on the episode forums.

  • What did you think of the game?
Answers
  • It was cool at the beginning but became boring after a while…
  • It was fun! Very well organized too.
  • Nice! I have already played it, and it was a fun ride.
  • I thought it was quite an impressive game! And something you can’t really ever get bored of!
  • I’ve played this game long ago but I stopped playing because I lost interest. The second time around I understand the game more and enjoy playing it.
  • Is there anything in particular that stood out to you?
Answers
  • The concept of it, I’ve never played another game like this before
  • The news channels were a good touch, but other than that not really
  • I don’t really think so…?
  • The attention to detail in the news, borders, flight paths, etc. It really made it seem more like the world!
  • I like the whole news section because some of the alerts would just crack me up. They had some interesting alerts in the game. I definitely like how you get points to make the disease worse by clicking the little bubbles that would pop up or when a new country got infected. You can play the same game many times with a different ending depending on what you chose.
  • Did you dislike a certain feature?
Answers
  • That you can’t make the time speed up in the demo version…
  • That you had to pay to modify your disease even if you had unlocked it :crying_cat_face:
  • Well, I did not really like the fact that you had to pay for the full game experience but it’s okay.
  • Not really. The fact that you had to pay for some of the plagues kinda bugged me, but that’s understandable.
  • There is one part that annoyed me is the gene part. It’s where you can add a certain gene to the disease to make it more dangerous. You have to get a victory on each or multiple victories in the different disease types. If you didn’t want to go that route you had to pay .99 ct to gain access to them.
  • Do you think the game could be improved?
Answers
  • Definitely, every game can be improved
  • Yes, you should be able to modify your disease when you unlock a gene.
  • Apart from the fact that I am broke and can’t upgrade the game… No, nothing.
  • I think it’s already amazing! But maybe it could have a certain percentage of corrupt in human society? Like there could be some kinda mode/challenge where humanity is so corrupt they wouldn’t even announce the plague until much later. Or there’s a challenge where humanity has no corruption, and the second someone finds something sketchy, they’ll be the biggest snitch on Earth and tell everyone! So yeah, maybe some stuff based on social interactions?
  • I think the whole points section could be improved on because there would be a moment when playing the game and you are waiting on points for a few minutes to get them. The only reason I think needs to be improved is because you could miss bubbles if you’re not looking at the screen the whole time.

Alright, that is the review for Plague Inc. If you have any questions that weren’t answered in the review then don’t be shy about asking them. I will respond back as quickly as I can.

  • What did you think of the Game?
Answers
  • I love the graphics! It’s clear and beautiful. I love the different game elements; Candy Crush- best way I can explain it- finding objects. I think the storyline needed tweaking and just something to grab the attentions of the players. I know there are more game features the more you get into it, but it’s more practical to get their attentions earlier than later because you’ll lose their interest, like me. I love the game, but lost interest because it’s taking too long to really get interesting. Honestly, I was lowkey hoping the boy was dead heh.
  • I enjoyed the game whole layout. It’s definitely different than your average puzzle game though it has a huge variety of puzzles in it. You won’t get burned out since you can play the multiple sections. The story is definitely one of the biggest parts that drew me in when I started playing the game. I ended up getting up to chapter 6 almost week at the beginning of testing the game out. The graphics are amazing in this game! They are so beautiful to watch the next chapter scenes when you get finish the chapter.
  • Is there anything in particular that stood out to you?
Answers
  • The graphics!
  • The storyline and the graphics stood out the most!
  • Did you dislike a certain feature?
Answer
  • The dialogue was a little too long for me and the map was confusing.
  • The only problem I had was that it kept offering special deals to pay for but other than that part the game is good.
  • Do you think the game could be improved?
Answer
  • Absolutely!
  • Yes, there are parts that could be changed in the game. They are slowly making those changes happen.

  • What did you think of the Game?
Answers
  • I really liked it, it was fun and kept my interest, although I didn’t get to play much so I don’t know if it gets more boring or difficult when you reach higher levels.
  • It was a pretty okay game it was pretty much what I expected it to be based on the information presented to me in the app store.
  • The game is fun but it gets repetitive after playing it. It lets you go back through the old levels when job opportunities open up. You can earn 3 stars at each location through multiple plays before you can’t do that level again. It’s like most cooking app games.
  • Is there anything in particular that stood out to you?
  • Yes! In fact, my favorite feature is the speed. You need to be quick in order to satisfy the customers and get more coins!
  • The graphics were great and I liked how I could play a small demo of it by using Google instant instead of downloading the app.It gave me a preview of what to expect.
  • I like the part where you can go back through the section you are in to get better with the recommended upgrades. It does have a smoother interface compared to other cooking games. You have to get a strategy in place to finish the levels.
  • Did you dislike a certain feature?
Answers
  • No, not really. But as I said above, there may be features that I didn’t get to experience due to my low level.
  • Getting spoons is pretty hard and I wasn’t very keen on all the waiting around either.
  • I didn’t like the method to remove burnt food off the grill. It took me a bit to figure out how to do it.
  • Do you think the game could be improved?
Answers
  • No, it was fine to me. Simple but interesting!
  • Maybe let the player watch ads to earn spoons
  • Go over how to take food off the oven/grill more thoroughly.
