The following are strategies, tips, and Q&A for the Not Another Zombie Game achievement. Please feel free to add your own below:

Strategy 1Edit

Use these genes to start:

Steps:

  1. Start in India.
  2. Evolve Saliva 1 (6) , Zoonotic Shift (4) , and Bat 1 (11).
  3. Note: This part is very random. Check if there is a news headline that says, "Colony of rabid bats triggers town evacuation." (Orange entry) If India is fully infected, and players did not get this notice, they should restart the game and try again. Otherwise, move on to step 4.
  4. Save the game.
  5. Devolve Bat 1.
  6. Evolve Drug Resistance 1, Genetic Hardening and Genetic ReShuffle 1 and 2.
  7. Wait for news headline to appear, which says "WHO starts Rabies Eradication Initiative", If it does not appear, load your game from (4.). Otherwise move to step 8.
  8. Save the game.
  9. Wait for news headline to appear, which says "Film about Rabies epidemic becomes global hit". If it does not appear, load your game from (8.). Otherwise move on to step 10.
  10. Evolve Cold Resistance 1.
  11. Wait until the world is fully infected without being detected.
  12. Evolve the symptoms Insomnia, Fever, Photophobia, Coma, Acute Encephalitis and Hyper Salivation.(Need at least 54 DNA)
  13. Wait for a popup that says "Is a form of Rabies"
  14. Devolve Zoonotic Shift.
  15. Wait for a popup that says "No link to Rabies" The cure will be slowed/stopped.
  16. Wipe out the world! Make sure that Cytopathic Reanimation does not mutate, or else you will not receive this achievement.


If you did this right, congrats! You have achieved the most brutal achievement in the entire game.

However, this guide dosn't work for anyone to be honest.

Strategy 2Edit

  • Note: This method is slow, but is estimated to work 33% of the time if the instructions are followed below, and players should win the achievement.

Genetic Code:

  1. Start in Saudi Arabia.
  2. Start evolving traits. Evolve everything the moment you have enough DNA points to evolve the next gene unless instructed to wait. Evolve transmissions: Saliva 1 (6); Gastrointestinal Expansion (9); Blood 1 (11); Urogenital Expansion (10), resulting in the spending of 36 DNA points.
  3. Evolve Abilities: Drug Resistance 1 (9); Cold Resistance 1 (6); Drug Resistance 2 (22); Cold Resistance 2 (10). (47 DNA points)
  4. Wait it out a bit, and stock some DNA points until a symptom mutates (Hyper Salivation or Insomnia). You should have around 3.5-4 billion people infected and around 50-65 DNA points when it gets discovered. Some countries will shut down airports, just wait it out until you'll have every country infected, it usually doesn't shut down its seaports until people start dying.
  5. Wait until something else evolves, or the beginning of cure development. Evolve the symptoms Hyper Salivation; Polyphagia, Gastroenteritis, Autophagia, and Acute Encephalitis. All deadly symptoms must be evolved without unblocking the path to Cytopathic Reanimation.
  6. Evolve Ability: Genetic Hardening (8 DNA points)
  7. Evolve the transmissions Zoonotic Shift (7), Bat 1 (14), and Bat 2 (21). (42 DNA points)
  8. Watch the world burn. Slowly. Anarchy soon takes the world over and cure research begins to slow after 75%, crawling to a halt past 90%-95%)
  9. If Delirium, Psychosis, or Cannibalism evolve, try and devolve them. This step is not very important but it prevents the possibility of Cytopathic Reanimation mutating.
  10. Once the population drop below 6 billion people dead with the world being strangled in anarchy and there will be 10 years from a cure, put your Apple device/PC/Android down and go have a snack, watch some TV, or go outside for a bit. Mutations almost never occur after this point and the only notification you will get, is that of the world dying a painful death. I would check it now and then just to clear any notifications. (Note: Humans don't like dying when they are frequently vomiting, desiring to eat themselves, suffering from brain lesions, coma, Photophobia, fever and insomnia. All while being attacked by bats after the last government on the planet had fallen more than three years ago.)
  11. Relish the fact that Greenland was the first to die. Ha.
  12. Raise your hands into the air and shout in excitement as the last human dies after ~3200 days.

Strategy 3Edit

Not Another Zombie Game

Not Another Zombie Games is one of the hardest achievements to get. Here is a strategy that might work

1: Get some transmissions

2: Get Cold Resistance 1 & 2

3: Get Drug Resistance 1

4: If the cure starts, evolve Genetic Hardening

6: If the cure goes too fast, evolve Genetic Reshuffle 1

7: If the cure is still too fast, evolve Genetic Reshuffle 2

8: Wait until the whole world is infected.

9: Evolve all lethal traits except Cytopathic Reanimation

10: The achievement should be earned.

Strategy 4 Edit

Strat 1 didn't work for me in game version 1.13.2: I got all the way to step 15, but cure progress did not slow enough for the death toll to catch up.

Here's my modification of Strat 1 that worked (though it involves a lot of tedious waiting). I'm directly replicating the parts that don't need to be changed, so much of this will look identical to Strat 1.

Use these genes to start:

Steps:

  1. Start in India.
  2. Evolve Saliva 1 (6) , Zoonotic Shift (4) , and Bat 1 (11).
  3. Note: This part is very random. Check if there is a news headline that says, "Colony of rabid bats triggers town evacuation." If India is fully infected, and players did not get this notice, they should restart the game and try again. Otherwise, move on to step 4.
  4. Save the game.
  5. Devolve Bat 1.
  6. Evolve Drug Resistance 1, Genetic Hardening and Genetic ReShuffle 1 and 2.
  7. Wait for news headline to appear, which says "WHO starts Rabies Eradication Initiative", If it does not appear, load your game from (4.). Otherwise move to step 8.
  8. Save the game.
  9. Wait for news headline to appear, which says "Film about Rabies epidemic becomes global hit". If it does not appear, load your game from (8.). Otherwise move on to step 10.
  10. Devolve Zoonotic Shift now. This will pretty much prevent you from getting any mutations for the rest of the game (but only if you did devolve Bat 1 back in step 5!) and will prevent future research from getting a boost (I think).
  11. Evolve Cold Resistance 1.
  12. Wait until the world is fully infected without being detected.
  13. This is where the tedium comes in. Even though the world is fully infected, do NOT evolve any symptoms at all! Instead, wait and watch for orange DNA bubbles. Keep popping bubbles until you have 128 DNA points. Yea, that many. Once you gather 128 DNA points, move on to step 14.
  14. Evolve the symptoms Insomnia, Fever, Photophobia, Coma, Acute Encephalitis and Hyper Salivation.(Need at least 62 DNA)
  15. Wait for a popup that says "Is a form of Rabies"
  16. Evolve the following symptoms: Delirium, Psychosis, Cannibalism. The first two will slow down research speed and all three will increase lethality.
  17. Do NOT evolve Polyphagia or Gastroenteritis! You do not need infectivity at this point, and having these two open traits means that in the event you get a mutation later on, there will be only a 33% chance that that mutation will be Cytopathic Reanimation (which would ruin your achievement run).
  18. Save the game. This is very important.
  19. Wait for a popup that says "No link to Rabies". The cure will be slowed a great deal. If you don't get this pop-up by about 60% cure completion, you may want to consider loading your save and waiting again.
  20. Put the game on max speed and wait for the win. This will take a pretty long time, especially as the death rate will slow down near the end. If you get a Cytopathic Reanimation mutation at any point, load your last save game and try again. During this period, you may want to save periodically to reduce the amount of wait time you have to sit through should you need to load.

If you did this right, congrats! You have achieved the most brutal achievement in the entire game.
