About this app

Your mission, if you choose to accept, is to get clues and analyze data to solve the outbreak and save lives! In this fun app, you get to be a Disease Detective.

Do you quarantine the village? Interview people who are sick? Run more lab tests? The better your answers, the higher your score - and the quicker you’ll climb the ranks to become a decorated Disease Detective. In level 1, you’ll start as a Trainee and earn badges by solving scenarios — with the goal of earning the top rank: Disease Detective.

Unlock Level 2 by mastering all the 12 outbreaks of Level 1. Then earn honors by solving new and more challenging scenarios. Earn recognitions like Surveillance and Treatment Honors.

New outbreaks happen every day and CDC's Disease Detectives are on the front lines — working 24/7 to save lives and protect people. When a new outbreak occurs, Disease Detectives are sent in to figure out how the outbreak started before it spreads further.

In this app, you'll also:
• Learn about diseases and outbreaks in an engaging way.
• See how CDC's Disease Detectives save lives around the world.
• Have the option to post your scores on Facebook or Twitter and challenge your friends to play!

It's a cute idea with engaging scenerios, but we couldn't get the clues to open. Everytime we answered a question, we got a buzzer, but no indication if we answered it correctly. One data chart was so detailed we couldn't make heads or tails of it. A great idea, but it wasn't fun.

Great idea, terrible formatting I think I would really enjoy this game, as I'm extremely interested in epidemiology and infectious disease. The clues are difficult to scroll, and the answers are cut off. I had to guess what the bottom line or 2 might be and just hope I was right. Update the UI, and this might be a really great game.

The idea of this app is great! But the formatting is bad. Some text is off the screen and there is no way to see it, some answers cannot be selected, and you have to scroll in a tiny box of one line of text. If these things are fixed, it will be much better!
