We can't complain about the lack of “medical-centric” games on Android. Yes, there are not a lot of them, but the existing ones are pretty good ones. Starting with the sadistic Surgeon Simulator, the tale about a clumsy and calamitous surgeon in the ER, and moving on to the morbid Plague Inc., a title that lets you evolve a nano virus, a bacteria, or a parasite and wipe the human population with it. Well, there's another addition to the game genre - welcome the macabre Bio Inc. - Biomedical Plague.
In this game, you'll have to make an individual breathe their last by infecting them with a pretty impressive suite of maladies, infections, diseases, viruses, and whatnot. Just name a disease or a medical condition and chances are that it is present in Bio Inc. - heart stroke, flu, cancer, gastroenteritis, aneurysms, stress, various infections, insomnia, osteoporosis, lupus nephritis, dystrophies, Crohn's disease, and immune deficiency are just a few of the numerous illnesses in Bio Inc. You can maliciously combine these to your heartfelt content, but beware - doctors will be treating the victim and trying hard to circumvent your efforts, which usually results in a tight race against the clock.
"Bio Inc is a biomedical strategy simulator in which you determine the ultimate fate of a victim by developing the most lethal illness possible."Similar to Plague Inc., you'll need to collect points to spend on disease evolution and deteriorate the overall medical condition of your victim. Additionally, you can force your “patient” to worsen his lifestyle with cigarettes, a sedentary job, or just make him unlucky. These risk factors, combined with several of the maladies mentioned above, can bring even the healthiest individual in Bio Inc. right at death's door in no time.
The macabre and challenging game is also available on iOS, where it's currently fetching a $0.99 price tag. On Android, however, a free trial of the game is available, and if you discover that infecting people with cirrhosis and emphysema (in the virtual world, of course!) floats your boat, then a $0.99 in-app purchase will unlock everything Bio Inc. has in store.
