Plague Inc.: Gameplay, and Features

Plague Inc. gives you 2 objectives and you have to choose either of them – infect the world with a deadly virus (main game) or save the world from it (cure mode). 

But regardless of the option you pick, you will have to devise a strategy and make improvisations as the opposite force tries to stop you. Let us start with the main one.

Main game

Being the troublemaker, your first task is to create a lethal virus and pick a country where it can impact the most. Your decision matters. For example, rich countries are harder to infect and countries with a lot of land neighbors make it easy to spread the virus across borders.

DNA points let you evolve. Collect them. The more you kill, the more points you get. 

Soon the news will be spread across the world and governments will try to protect their countries and send help to the infected ones. Be alert to exploit weaknesses and stop them from eradicating your virus.

Now you have to decide how you can spread your disease worldwide, breach lockdowns, and prevent the cure from being invented.

Cure mode

Here you will act as the head of an organization that overlooks such concerns (just like WHO).

Start by tracking the disease and investigating the outbreaks by setting up a team of investigators and field operatives.

Promote hygiene practices like hand washing to reduce infection, spread alerts where situations are out of control, enforce a lockdown in such regions, and lock borders (but it may lead to unrest among people). And, this is just the beginning.

Many real-life adversities will be coming next. However, your prime objective is to maintain your authority, use resources wisely, help the countries in need, create a cure, and finally eradicate the disease.

Features:

  1. Comprehensive tutorials – Infecting or saving the whole world is a huge responsibility and you may be unsure of where to start. But don’t worry. You can always watch its tutorials to get a direction.
  1. Comes in many languages – Plague Inc. comes in languages such as English, German, Spanish, Brazilian Portuguese, and more to promote regionality and bring in more players.
  1. 2 game modes – By giving you modes to play both sides of a pandemic, you will understand comprehensively how such situations work.
  1. Progress stats – You will get detailed stats to show you how good you are going, where you can improve, and the percentage of this game you have completed.

Plague Inc.: Pros and Cons

Pros:

  1. Realistic gameplay – It makes us wonder how realistic the gameplay of Plague Inc. is. Hats off to its creators who have looked into the minute details of such a complex event.
  1. Available on all devices – Plague Inc. is available on Android, iOS, PC, Mac, Xbox One, and PS4. Play it wherever you want.

Cons:

  1. Breeds sadism – Sadism is a behavior where you get pleasure by inflicting pain on others. Its main game is based on this where you will be deriving happiness and fun by killing people. This encourages sadistic behavior even in other areas of life.
