  • Very addicting game but... Oct 22, 2020

    By SmollBeanz
    So you may have seen the title and it is very addicting I have a problem though the spider spawn is way to long and the map is too small there is no other food sources like human food the solider ants cost way to much food and it’s really hard to progress in the game like the slave chamber when I need it I need more body parts and it’s hard to get body parts when the creature you want to capture is gonna be the body parts also can you add more then just two creature on the map instead and the gems it is very hard to get gems and you can’t friend people to help with your army there should be a invite friend button and when you click on it you get a boost also the red ants also have a long cool down before you can kill it again the pheromones are hard to get because there is only one creature you can get it from and there is another way to get it but your army maybe to small to fight it P.S This is a good game just needs more work put in to it

    I love this game. But for some reason, everytime I join the game, all my soldier ants are gone. This drains my food supply a lot. I also can't seem to get my convoy to arrive with enough ants. The fire ants are too strong despite being outnumbered. Another problem I had was then fire ants nest is too strong. I can't get past the 8th level of the nest. Please fix this soon, other than that, great game!

  • Amazing game, one big discouraging factor. Oct 18, 2020

    By johnnydooreeto290
    I played this game non-stop until I was introduced to PVP, there’s a bit of an issue. There are a lot of complaints about matchmaking, but I believe it’s based off of one huge factor. PVP is the beat(and basically only way) to het pheromones other than the occasional red and colony which only gives you one and the daily reward, which one day out of the 10 or so you get some. But players tend to do something that makes them virtually invincible. Stacking literally every ant and creature they have in the Queen Chamber. Now stacking only creatures inside there isn’t a huge issue once you get crynsanthemum, but it doesn’t affect ants at all, and once you stack all 50 ants inside as well it’s virtually unbeatable. I suggest adding some limit to what exactly you can stack inside the queen chamber, or add something that affects ants as well, otherwise the only way to win is through raw power in you creatures, and that’s where the matchmaking comes in. I think adding a way to choose opponents either through a list with stats or a few separate options based on foreseen difficulty. But I think not letting everyone stack the queen chamber is the best way to encourage players to actually keep playing.

    I think this game has a lot of potential, but there are a few things that make it incredibly annoying to play. Game doesn't play in the background. So you have to just leave the app open to farm because the fun bits of this game only take 30 min to complete. Fix, farm and rebuild army while in the background. Needs to be able to be zoomed out further, or be able to "drive" from the map screen. Not having any way to direct your large creatures in battle is just a waste.

  • Good but needs a bit of work. Oct 7, 2020

    By mason999990?!?
    I enjoy this game and have only had it for a few hours. I learned of it through barinvongames and it looked fun. But by watching vids and just seeing for myself I have a few comments. 1. I feel like you should be able to afk without having to leave your device on. Now I only know of this from baron so I don’t know if it is actually true. But if you can’t turn off your device and nothing happens then I feel like you it’s just grueling. 2. I personally think that you should add a few more ant mounds to compete with. Maybe bullet ants or like a mutated ant made by doctor Zany or some other kind of ant since the red ants aren’t hard and the fire ants you only face every now and again. So please add another colony. 3. Please add some customization. Maybe you can add hats or change your ant color. I think that would be fun and that way you can stick out. Maybe make these customizations come from the quests or maybe you buy some of them. Now this seems like I hate this game. That is wrong I enjoy it but I think it just needs a bit more content. Thank you for reading this and if you are a developer please take this to heart. -sincerely Me

    Not actually an 'idle' game. Ants only collect resources as you actually play the game. Timers for upgrades pass when you're not playing it, but that's it. Add to that the fact that you're limited in what you can do at any time other than gathering (kill red ants, harvest aphids, kill insects) and after you do those, you have to wait 24 hours for them to respawn, and you have a really boring game on the whole.

    I absolutely love this game. Less love now though, I was in the middle of a dew escort and it was interrupted by an update. Maybe save the updates for when the game first boots up? Also it seems like the odds of a successful fusing are a lot less than 75%. 4 in a row just failed. All 3 star fuses. Getting a little sick of it.

    Really cool game.. Spent money on this game and when I tried the restart in the options menu, where it says small changes will be made. all it does is freeze on the pocket ants start screen. I have updated it cleared my cache and data even unintsalled and reinstalled the game to no avail. My son is playing the same game on my device and his restart worked just fine. I tried my restart before he even played on my device. And I warned him about the restart but kids will be kids. Please fix.

    facebook page not active. PVP battle has no player available try again later, after first attack, need better PvP engine. Blue pheromone get you tarantula and praying mantis most of the time, so not any way better than yellow and pink. You get attacked even when you are online. Seems like beta app. In battle if you are able to reach queen, you might not be able to attack her if more than 20% enemy team is alive. Seems stupid.

    It was my favourite game but since there are lots of things to improve. I am giving 2 stars. First the thing is that why we can only breed only 150 total workers if it's an ant game there shall be n numbers of ants depends on your chambers. 2nd is that you need to loot for honey combs for the updations in your army which is illogical. I think it was being made by taking care of fantasy not reality.

    Very fun, lots of grinding to do. It would be fun though to have the ability to have allies. Like you walk outside of your territory and visit your friends. A global would be cool too so I can add people to make this function awesome. Of course, allies cannot attack you or they will breach a diplomacy and would be a big target for others to attack. That's the best I got, plz make it happen :)

    This game is a lot of fun and addicting. I had a problem with a purchase so I emailed them, they fix the purchase problem within minutes. Controls are very easy. The game however is a grinding game, so if you don't like to grind it's not for you. For a new game in 2020 I would recommend playing this game for a time killer and playing with friends. Maybe in the future you could play with friends, and have a world map with other colonies as well as the events they have.

  • So much more potential! Oct 22, 2020

    By Sunshine26677
    This game is fun! I’m the type of guy that enjoys games that give me something to work towards. The multiplayer is okay but like other comments, it needs to be revised. I got 10 soldier ants and felt like I was doing something. Flash forward in my first PVP match. I got crushed cause I went against a guy that had like 100+ solider ants and a giant spider helping him on my first PVP match. There needs to be more PVE stuff and also afk stuff because it only collects stuff while your online not offline. It’s a real bummer having to constantly make sure your phone doesn’t lock. Do me a favor; and download it if you’ve always wanted to live out your childhood fantasy of having an ant colony!

    I have a blast, it's slow at the start but it's kinda like a real ant, and you don't get as many ants as you'd think but what you can eventually do with your combined force definitely makes me smile way more than it makes me upset. And BUY THE FLOWERS IF YOU WANT TO BATTLE!!! They are permanent upgrades you don't pay for with real money and well worth it🙂 Have fun!

  • I like the game but I have some ideas Oct 21, 2020

    By dhshbah
    First of all I feel like u should be able to use your creature slaves even when not in battle so that the could help protect your worker ants from other bad insects. Secondly it would be cool if there was another ant colony in the world that sometimes tries to raid your colony and u get the chance to fight them off. And last but probably most important I should be able to lock my phone and my ants still be working especially since I gotta wait for hours on end for parts of my colony to be built or upgraded when I pick up my phone later it would be nice if my ants had made some progress on there own. Maybe send a notification if they need a new leaf or pile of almonds

    I downloaded this game today as I am writing this and so far, it's pretty good. A bit of problems though. Please lower down the In-app purchase cost of resources, and you have to wait so gosh darn long to upgrade things. I wish that after fighting aphids at least 20 times, you get the option to make your own aphid farm to get more honeydew. I'm sick of losing soldiers and getting very little honeydew per fight, when you use that very same currency to recruit more soldiers...

  • Pretty good game! However Oct 3, 2020

    By Floof21
    The game was an amazing game,I would recommend it to people wanting some causal gameplay,but there could be a few improvements,first off, the base game without the multiplayer aspect is short lived, I found myself completing it in two afternoons. Second, the matchmaking is way off, since the majority of players are high level I find it hard to find an opponent who I stand a chance against, this causes me to lose lots of trophies in order to find someone I can fight. Lastly, pheromones are way too hard to get, this ties into the fact of the matchmaking issue and the short base game,otherwise; it was an amazing game and I will continue to support the developer and enjoy the game.

  • Needs work Oct 14, 2020

    By tiktpkgarbo
    The game is great but need improvements. For example when I was escorting the aphids I accidentally pressed the mystery icon that explains to you what to do witch during that time I could not move and the fire ants wiped out my aphids. Also another thing is the pvp it’s a pain like a reset the game so many times just trying to maximize the amount of soldiers I can get before I need pheromones also almost everyone just put there captured creatures in the queens room so even if you can get into the nest you can’t win I was reseting hoping for a good match and all I got was people with like 100 people I have to leave and go again and repeat until I hopefully get a good match then I win and still don’t get a pheromone

    Official Review:// Games great, can be easily played for free, recovering from being raided by much higher level players is easy. All it takes is time. It's a good game. Solid gameplay. HOWEVER, Fusing creatures is literally a joke. Base fusing value is 75% and It failed to fuse 4 times in a row. That is a 1 and 750 million chance for that to happen. Fusing needs to be reworked, currently the 75% chance, is a flat out lie to your face. Will be 5 stars when updated and fixed.

    It has potential. But... Battles are skewed, I can't see how I'm ever going to get my level up having 3 battles a day (even if I win them) but getting smashed every time I'm away. When I win I get hardly any resources but when I lose when I'm out of game I lose 100s of everything. I've been hunting bugs for my army and only ever seem to get tarantula or mantis. I've only seen 1 tiger beetle and 1 bombardier beetle. Level 1 fusion doesn't hit at anything like 75% success. Could be more tasks.
