Have you ever been so frustrated that you wanted to destroy the planet?
Well, now you’ll get a chance. Meet Plague Inc., a new iPhone game that’s topping the charts on the App Store.
It’s a game where you genetically engineer the spread and lethality of a virus, systematically taking out the human race.
The game is based on (or ripped off from) an old Flash-based game on the web called Pandemic, which did essentially the same thing.
But now you can take your pathological desires to kill the human race on the go. Plus, the game is actually a lot of fun to play — especially if you’re a big fan of apocalyptic games.
There are three modes of play. You can't progress through the game unless you play it on the normal difficulty.
Unfortunately, most of the types of plagues are locked when you first start. You'll have to play through the viruses one by one to unlock the rest.
You can select any country to start the disease. We'll start with Madagascar, because, well, it looked at us funny.
Pop that little biohazard button to start infecting a country. You'll have to pop them as the disease spreads to spread the infection to new countries.
But if you evolve your disease too quickly, it will get noticed and the world will begin working on a cure.
Sometimes the game will throw a curve ball at you — in a situation like this, you can evolve your virus to spread more quickly through birds.
...and rolling. You can see humanity is trying to develop a cure on the bottom right, but it isn't working thanks to drug resistance.
