Editors' Review

+
Despite its lack of 3D graphics, this addictive breeding game held our attention for the full hour of the demo. The gameplay is quite simple, and you won't even need to read the enclosed help file. You run an anthill in an attempt to make a billion ants. Short instructions at the beginning explain the tasks your ants must perform. Random events (among them, the attack of a small girl, Lenny) and battles will force you to reallocate resources. It's not complicated. Thanks to the clean interface, in half an hour you'll be concentrating on strategy rather than searching for the right button. Ant War shares a flaw common to many breeding games: as the game progresses, the bonuses and enemies change, but the basic strategies don't. Also, while the game's Flash-like 2D graphics look all right, they certainly won't wow anyone. In general, Ant War will appeal to strategy buffs, but $19.95 is probably asking too much.

"Fun for a few hours, not worth $20"

October 12, 2008  |  By jdd77

 |  Version: Ant War 1

Pros

Entertaining for the first 45 minutes.

Cons

The game play is extremely repetitive with little variation and almost no strategy.

Summary

Zero playability after the initial interest wears off in a few hours. Go ahead and play the demo but think hard before dropping the $20.

"INteresting..."

July 31, 2007  |  By bohdanjones

 |  Version: Ant War 1

Pros

Normally, I like good graphical games. THis one - no 3d graphics - very 1980 ish. But the breeding plot was interesting, and I found myself capitbated, so people should be interested in triying it, despite the graphics!

Cons

Graphcis could be better in the next version!
