Do I feel sheepish :oops:
In my defence, that's a great name for a game though.

I played it a while ago on the PC, it was freeware but I believe it's now on iOS and android? I read about it here:

Sorry, it's now called Plague Inc. The one I played it was always hard to get Madagascar infected

Plague Inc is one of the best mobile games ever made. It's basically a giant bunch of stats hidden under some pretty graphics. You get credits by killing and spreading your plague. You then need to spend these credits on evolving the plague with symptom and transmission abilities. Make it too lethal too early and it will be discovered and a cure created. Don't spread it fast enough and the cure research will outpace your plague's ability to evolve and kill.

Goal of the game is to kill every living person on the planet.

It's on Android and Apple devices. Based on the earlier free Flash game called Pandemic 2 which is balls hard and also the source of the internet meme Shut Down Everything.

There's a good co-operative board game called pandemic where you have to go around the world trying to stop a plague that's threatening to wipe out everything.

It's far more fun to BE the plague. Once you see France turn black and the last Frenchmen die, you'll be hooked.
