Pandemic 2 is a strategy tycoon game where your objective is to infect and kill everyone with a disease. Sounds pretty dark but it’s actually a casual game. It’s also easy to play, just select your preferred life form to spread disease. Then infect everyone! Upgrade with delightful symptoms like vomiting, delirium and open sores. This is a casual time-management game so you’ll have to upgrade and then wait and see if your disease is progressing before your time limit. As time passes, you’ll gain evolution points which is what you can use to purchase upgrades.
To play Pandemic 2, first choose your mode: relaxed or realistic. Realistic mode is more difficult so leave this one to the pros if this is your first time. Then select between the three available microbes which also vary in difficulty. You can click on each country to see how well they’re doing or go to the main map in the upper left hand to move around the red square. You can see recent news in the left hand column for reports about the spread of the disease. Once you’ve gained points, you can upgrade your microbe by adding more symptoms, modes of transmission, and resistance
