I seem to be getting a bug on certain Plague Inc fungus levels. In certain countries, my plague stalls and the numbers never change. My DNA level keeps rising, but the number of infected doesn't shift. I've had this near game end, where my disease was hyperlethal and massively infectious, and near the start, where it was unnoticed.

Is this a bug? Or is it something I can fix?

Same here, I can't beat fungus on normal difficulty. Maybe it's intentional to force you to buy full version? – vartec Dec 18 '12 at 17:43
Which number are you referring to? The number of infected? – rikitikitik Dec 20 '12 at 0:51
good point, fixed the q – deworde Dec 20 '12 at 6:48
To get any spread worth even talking about in Iceland/Greenland, you pretty much need at least Cold Resistance I. Can't speak to why they're not dying if you have sufficient lethality, though... – Rilgon Arcsinh Dec 20 '12 at 10:53

I've seen this happen in two places:

USA / Japan: Solution: evolve drug immunity, on Brutal you need to go to level 2.

Greenland: Evolve Cold immunity, on Brutal, you need level 2.

However, with Fungus, I haven't seen the last ability really work well - where "spores are constantly released". I wonder if it's related.

You need to go to Abilities and evolve things like Cold Resistance, Heat Resistance, and Drug Resistance. Otherwise, your disease will only progress very, very slowly.

If you start in a hot country, you pretty much need Cold Resistance for Greenland and Iceland.
