Dealing with viruses on your computer has never been so entertaining.

Uh, the link seems to be broken, it takes you to the correct site, but nothing seems to be showing up, just getting a blank author and no game screen. Looks fun though, like a smaller scale version of Pandemic, or whatever that game about killing off the entire world through a virus was called.

Hm. The link is accurate, but the game itself seems to be down - getting there from the Armor site itself doesn't work, either. Replaced with a working link for the time being :)

Well, I went ahead and tried to go play other games on the site (Achievement Unlocked, actually) and I was getting the exact same thing. Seems to me the site is down.

Thanks for showing me this game. Its pure awesome.

I beat this game earlier today, and it's better than its predecessor in every way, I must say. Far more in depth and fun.

Now if you could only infect Madagascar...

*laughs heartily* Great minds think alike.

You guys are awesome, did any of you guys actually manage infect it in the end?

Fun game nice pandemic reference there

I just finished the game and shit gets frantic near the end. Thanks for the reccomendation.

Awwww bummer, I found and beat this game earlier today.

You can do it, but you need to get a ship bearing country at the start, keep the virus hidden for as long as possible and then get lucky with Japan and Madagascar. Once you infect those two, hitting the water plants usually wins you the game.

On my tenth playthough on Realistic, I managed to infect Madagascar...only to be shut off by Peru. I worked so hard to get Madagascar, and now my work is stopped by Peru!

Yes, once again it boils down to trial and error with a heaping portion of dumb luck mixed in. I had a ship go in just before they closed their borders.

Really, REALLY good game in my opinion. I loved it.

If anyone is a bit stuck, strength, defence and reproduction are a good way to go.

This game starts of rather hard, but becomes ridiculously easy by the end. In a good way; it's still really fun, but things just breeze by.

I liked to focus on Strength, Speed, Reproduction and Agility, with Defense as my dump stat. It was unneeded when everything would be taken over and filled up at the rate it was.

I could never infect that stupid island nation.
About to try this game here you featured, keep it up:D
They've all been entertaining so far.

Gah freakin Madagascar, it's always the one that got away....

still this game looks awesome, lets give it a try!

There was a picture somewhere...

"A cough in China? Quick! Close the borders!" - Mayor of Madagascar...

Interesting game, looks fun! Actually, hang on, I think I've played something similar to this.
No, honestly, it was exactly like this. I just don't know what it was called...

Imagine? But I AM a Biologist : )

EDIT: I beat the game and now feel empty.

Did anyone notice that the "bacteria" didn't have plasmids?

lol at the pandemic 2 reference Madagascar is frustrating as hell to infect. >:(

In the end I figured out that the only way to win the whole game was to start from Madagascar. Worked the first time I got that country.

But oh, this wasn't the Pandemic 2 thread, was it?

Woe Is You:

Exactly. I started and restarted until I got Madagascar. It was my first and only win.

But oh, this wasn't the Pandemic 2 thread, was it?

Huh? What game is is it then? No, wait...

I think the only way to infect Madagascar is to actually start on it.

I spent a few hours playing through Phage Wars 2 about a week and some back, I really enjoyed the game.

Nice Pandemic 2 reference too.

Yeah and if it wasn't Madagascar it was always some place unbelievable like the United States. How do you not infect the US?! It has ports, airports, and land borders!

I thought it was
Advisor: Sir someone has a cold in Brazil!
President: Shut. Everything. Down!

Well, it's a very amusing game, but By around the midpoint of the game I had built myself an indestructible beast of a virus and from there on in it was pretty easy. Still, it's a nice concept with fun gameplay. Nice find.

Pandemic and Pandemic 2 were the ones where you control a virus and kill off the world's population.

I liked the introduction of an upgrade system in the sequel. Not saying that choosing a color to decide your powers was a bad thing, but custom is better. Did anybody else notice the crazy names on some of those upgrade proteins had crazy descriptions? One of the early ones was like "The red headed stepchild of" or somthing.

On the subject of Madagascar, I made my virus highly infectious and spreadable, with minimal detectivity. Thus I infected the globe, then I changed to DEADLY. Good times... Good times...

Nice find, and a great game too!

Hard in the begining but OMFG so damn easy after like the 3 tree beating in like 12 secs was funny
LOve this game
