Plague Inc. has mutated for a whopping eighth time, bringing all sorts of new horribleness to the popular plague simulator.

The “Mega” mutation features an all new “Mega-Brutal” difficulty setting for those who might think that regular old Brutal is too easy, three new cheats, and four new scenarios. I’m particularly curious about the one involving trying to destroy the world with a 30,000 year old virus.

You can grab Plague Inc. off the App Store for $0.99, and
