Undiscovered App #83: Bio Inc - Personalized Plague

Bio Inc
Remember Plague? Yeah, that one where your job is to eliminate humanity by evolving a deadly, global disease while adapting against everything humanity can do to defend itself. Now imagine that on a micro level, where your objective now turns to just a single patient.

That's the focus of today's Undiscovered App. Bio Inc. - Biomedical Plague, by DryGin Studios, pits you against the defenses of one human and its immune system, where the race is on to collapse the individual's respiratory, circulatory, nervous, and other various systems before doctors can save him. Your weapons are over 100 biomedical conditions that weaken each pillar, like Obesity, Hypertension, Asthma, Lung Cancer, or pretty much any medical malady you can think of (Lupus, anyone?), plus you have the ability to slow down the patient's recovery by hijacking the medical support system (cause a misdiagnosis, get hospital staff to go on strike, etc.).

Time moves quickly, with each day being only around 15 seconds or so, and while you're trying to infect and weaken the patient, the recovery system is working to undo all your hard work. Take too long, and a medical miracle will occur, bringing the patient back to 100% health and ending the game. The game is not easy (there are three difficulty levels, and I played it on Medium), and it took a few tries, some being *this* close before losing, before I finally got the hang of it.

Check out the trailer:



Bio Inc. will not only thrill you, but educate you as well about the human body and the medical factors that can lead to our own maladies. It is currently available to download for $1.99, and has an average rating of 4.5 stars out of 55 ratings. Definitely a worthwhile download. Be one of the earliest ones to grab it before it goes viral (ahem).
