Thursday Game: Pandemic 2

Thursday, August 7, 2008

This game is a bit different than the last 2. You are a disease in the form of a virus, bacteria, or parasite, and your goal is to infect and ultimately clear the world’s population. Your disease, which you name yourself, starts in a random area of the world, with different traits depending on the area. As the game progresses, you get evolution points that you can use to buy symptoms, resistances, and types of disease transmission. Be warned: As your disease gets pretty bad in a few countries, other countries will close airports, shipyards, and borders, preventing you to infect the citizens. When everything gets really bad for the humans, they begin work on a vaccine, which will sometimes not work, and sometimes can’t be given out because you made the hospitals close.

That just about sums it up. To play it click here.
