App description: Could you save the world?

Take charge of the Apocalypse Lab and advance science into the future to save the world from certain doom, in a game of strategy and science.

Apocalypse Lab is a unique twist on the strategy genre. With the world dying you must fund research into ageing and health to make people live much, much longer. The research you fund will boost the abilities of your country in different ways.

This is a game about strategy, a game about ageing and a game about science.

The 'Institute for Ageing and Health' in Newcastle has produced this game to teach people about some of the research that is being done to prevent ageing. Whilst you try to save the world and perfect your strategy, you can take in real world information.


Features:
Completely free with no In-App Purchases!!!!!
Stunning retina graphics in this app, optimised for all iOS devices.
Real life research into Ageing and Health.
Information into Healthy Ageing provided by the Institute for Ageing and Health in Newcastle.
Excellent interface in which to manage the world and fund research.
Easy to play, but hard to master. With 3 difficulty levels it will take many attempts to get the perfect strategy.

Did you even bother to read the description? Kind of sad that the fact the interface resembles PI is enough for you to declare a free, no IAP, purportedly educational app about advancing science and sponsored by a research institution a "blatant clone".

Cute Anti-Plague game. Some cute concepts but awkwardly implemented. Like endless pop-ups and an inability to easily scroll around the globe.
