Epidemic Epidemic is a simulation game in which the player can set a number of starting variables and then watch in a real-time simulation what the results are.

The game simulates a disease epidemic. The disease is non-fatal and people who've had the disease become immune. The player can set the number of inhabitants of the island where the disease breaks out, the number of people initially infected and the contagion time. The simulation shows a top-down view of the island with the population randomly moving about. When infectious people come in contact with uninfected people they become infected.

After the disease has run its course, the player is presented with day-by-day graphs of what happened. [source:mobygames]
