So I didn’t have much trouble beating the Bacteria and Virus levels in Plague Inc: Evolved. Then I unlocked the Fungus level and it kept me frustrated for a couple of days. Today, I tried yet another strategy and managed to beat it and unlock the Parasite level. I will share with you how I did it.
Plague Inc. Fungus Level Walkthrough
First of all, this strategy so far has been successful in Casual mode. Let’s get to it…
Infecting many countries doesn’t seem so much of a problem with the Fungus plague. In previous efforts I came close to either infecting most people, killing all infected people before being able to infect all, or simply countries finding the cure. Killing 96% of the world is not enough, in order to unlock the next plague we need to kill 100%. Well, how do we do this?
I started by infecting Iceland. Seeing as it has an airport and a harbor, it offers several ways of spreading the Fungus. As I earned DNA points, I saved them up as much as possible, while also investing in the Spore Burst abilities (once or twice at a time) to infect new countries. What is most important in how I defeated the Fungus Level in this game, is the fact that I did not make use of any Symptoms. Whenever the fungus developed a symptom on its own, I devolved it immediately. Doing this allowed me to infect countries without people noticing they are infected. If people would develop any symptoms, researchers would start working on a cure. At this point, we are not ready for this.
As I spent my points on Spore Burst, Spore Eruption and Spore Hardening, I also spent some points on Water 1 and Air 1, to spread the Fungus via airplane and ship. Now, soon I infected all countries. Then it was a matter of waiting until all people were infected, then… time to strike.
I invested many points in as many symptoms as possible, particularly the fatal/lethal ones. It then proved to be a matter of waiting until all infected people were killed by the Fungus plague. People were dying so fast, all life on earth would be eradicated before a cure could be invented.
