  • Great game! Nov 23, 2020

    By Joshjameshawk
    So for anyone reading reviews, it’s a good game. Not super busy like some other idle games so it’s easier to look at. It’s fun to watch as well; the early game is kind of relaxing to look at. For the developers, I’m excited to play it. I like that the game isn’t aggressive to look at. Watching the ants go back and fourth makes me keep the app open longer than some of the other apps like this (trust me, I have a lot lol.) The thing that eventually makes me look away is how the ants start running through each other; it sorta gets hard to follow, then it’s just not as nice to look at. Ants in the wild create little “highways” where they form lanes of traffic. I think that adding something similar would really increase the time that people keep the app open, and squeezing a few more add views in there as well. Thanks for the app and keep up the good work!

    The game is great but there is nothing else to do after you beat it please add something else to do Edit: I recommend adding rebirth and after you get a certain amount of rebirths, you should be able to super rebirth also add where if you have a certain amount of ants who should be able to make them Bronze, Silver, Gold, Platinum, etc. Also one more thing Add a world boost and they increase a certain percentage per world.

    Honestly, the issue prob of this game was pretty solid. A true idle with no clicking it tapping and it looked really good. The only downside is the ads. Most are optional, which is fine but 9/10 times I tried to pass on an end of level ad, it played anyway and it really took me out of it. The pushing for the purchase of special ants is also a bit annoying and they seem over priced.

    Enjoyable. Very "anty" type behavior. Graphics aren't extremely detailed, but that allows decent performance on older Android devices. Could "swarm" over the object, but that would probably invoke disgust rather than Idle Amusement so it's probably better that it's more "cartoony ants" that realistic "ants crawling on your lunch or eyeball" ants.

    It took me around four days to make it through levels 1-6 and I feel like it’s a pretty good balance of leveling/earning. 3x is always worth it and it’s just slow enough to keep you playing just to get that one more level. Will keep playing for more worlds and to 100% each world. About a week ago, when I would max out something on a lower world it would show gray for the same item on worlds above it but still let me purchase it. When an item was maxed out it would occasionally let me buy it and not increase anything. I feel like the strength is a bit unbalanced. It’s not really necessary to increase it over about level 15 and it doesn’t add to the overall idle productivity.

  • My opinion about the game. Mar 1, 2021

    By XxWolfie_GachaxX
    My opinion about the game isn’t that it’s the worst it’s just not the best. Someone said there were a ton of ads but I just put my device on airplane mode so I didn’t get a chance to see if there were or not. But, honestly I don’t really like the game for the so fact that you just sit there watching ants go over to something and then take pieces of it into a hole. The only interacting thing you can do is upgrade and at the end either multiply your earning or push an x. There’s nothing to really do so if you’re looking for a game to just kind of sit and watch and do few interactions with then this is good for that if you’re looking for the total opposite then I’d say this probably isn’t for you. I mean, who knows? Maybe it is for you. Just because this is my opinion on the game doesn’t mean it’s yours too. If you want to see what this game is all about go for it, try new things maybe you’ll end up liking it. I don’t know. But, a heads up is that I think some stuff is over-priced. You shouldn’t have to pay for different ants that only have upgrades that you can just use your coins to buy. The ants in the store should be bought with coins not actual money. That is my opinion on the things I went through as I played the game. If you want to check it out I say go for it maybe you’ll end up liking it. Who knows?

    Kinda lame that it restarts from 1 at each new world so you have to grind all over again and it's not any faster of a grind. I hit the (X) for the ads and it still plays the ads anyway and it doesn't give the reward since I hit the (X).... It’s done it multiple times more then 10 which is highly irritating. Your game isn't worth $10 to justify a $10 ad removal charge. Ads all over the place and it's honestly out of control. Don't waste your time with this ad pit better games out there.

  • Too Few Levels, No Progression, Bugs Feb 5, 2021

    By Dbombfuser
    I beat the entire game in 1.5 hours: The game was fun and slow at first, and I kept watching ads to get the bonuses, which seemed worth it at first. I absolutely hate how they force you to watch an ad regardless of if you will get the boost anyways. I ended up paying the $20 to remove ads and then get all the special ants. This allows you to constantly have 2x speed, profit, free extra squads, and free VIP ants. The game literally does not scale to this kind of play, and is why I finished all the levels in 1.5 hours simply by spending $20. This is not rewarding and is terrible game design. Also, the VIP ant lets you spam press it while it’s walking out if you have purchased the “remove ads” and you will get the money multiplied by the number of times you clicked the ant. Overall I liked the game at first, but clearly this is just to make money for lazy developers, who will post “balance tweaks and bug fixes” every now and then to look good on the App Store, but ignore the blatantly obvious problems with the game mechanics.

  • Not my kind of game Dec 10, 2020

    By ShInYDiOmOnD
    Ok I’ve been playing this game for a while now and have not gotten very far, that’s because I have not played it. This game is potentially boring, maybe I’ve played it one or twice on my phone but, this game is boring. It also has money in it. Real money, like it’s all money money money. Oh and let’s guess there’s ads, of course there’s ads it’s a idle game, all idle games have a LOT of ads. Like for example, when you get money, sometimes ads just pop up out of nowhere. And there worlds, are SUPER hard to get. Oh and probably you can buy all the worlds for money, here we go again. Sure this ones a time-killer, but this game is not my kind of game, it’s just boring. Now I’m not trying to hurt someone’s feelings, but I just don’t like this game, one game is a HUGE time killer, it’s called roblox. It has TUNS of games. One is gacha life. I’m not saying you shouldn’t get this game, but I’d probably read this first it NEEDS changes, and NOW . Also why just why, when you just started to grow more strength, AND THE NEXT THING YOU KNOW THE GAME MONEY IS 60K FOR MORE STRENGTH! IT NEEDS CHANGES!

    Cute graphics but it's basically an AD simulator. Hardly get to play the game itself as the ads get launched at you from every direction and even if you press the X on them, they still show you an ad. It'd be a cute little game that im sure most people would be okay with spending a few dollars on but seriously, $15 for some special bugs that you can't even see because you need to spend an extra $15 to have no ads. Do the developers really see this game as something worth $30+? Like really?

    It is a pretty relaxing game, in my opinion. However, I encountered a bug at the last currently available world (the playground at this time). When the ants return with their loads, the money earned for returning ants decreases rather than increases, sending my wallet into negative. I don't know if this is a common problem or not, but it does ruin the appeal of the game in my opinion. Was a pretty good idle game up until that point.

  • Perfect Oct 16, 2020

    By CHI MY THE ORIGINAL
    I love this game. It makes me feel a lot of joy. I’ve always loved watching ants collect. The upgrades are easy and watching the ants go to work is very satisfying. This is my most favorite insect themed game. Most games centering around insects usually revolve around destroying them. But I love to observe insects, and this is amazing. I like to focus on upgrading their numbers instead of their speed and strength because real ants work in numbers, it gives me a more realistic experience. Plus, it makes the game last a little longer. I really want more content to play with the same basic controls. I’m never really happy when mobile games rely too much on bonus items. This game has the perfect balance.

  • Beat the game. Would like there to be more. Sep 24, 2020

    By Worhead
    After spending some time on the game I managed to max out the 3 options, speed at around 125 if I’m not mistaken, ants at 143 and strength at 25. The game breaks going past any of these options and you either have to reset or simply wait out any ad timers there are. I sped the game up immensely through the use of ads, taking my play time up from 5 hours to about 2 and the game was over. The reason I did this was to not only see what happens at the high speeds and how many ants total you can have, but also just because it was fun to watch them deconstruct the foods at those high speeds. If there is any way for you to add more of anything to the game, (a prestige system, more food, challenges, color variants to the ants, etc.) that would be wonderful. Until then, I cannot give this game a full 5 star rating because of the game breaking elements and the lack of content past the cap.

  • Not as “idle” as it suggests Oct 31, 2020

    By Jaz_112
    I’ve owned the game for a while and have played it regularly to the point I’ve finished the initial worlds and now am saving the insane amount for the next map after the latest update. It is an entertaining game but I have some complaints about its “idle” tag. To me, an idle game is one that can be played and then ignored without any micromanaging while the game is running. Unfortunately that’s not the case here. If the game is running you have to constantly tap on the collection of currency after each food is consumed. I’d like to see a timer that counts down, 10 seconds or so, to select wether or not you wish to view the add for the x3 bonus. Otherwise you get the standard amount and the game can continue to the next food. So far, from what I’ve noticed, there is no collection of currency/sec from previously created worlds while you’re playing. This should always be happening even in game, but instead it only seems to count for offline gains. For those of us who have purchased the “no ads” option it would be nice for an auto collect for the bonus options of double speed, the red ants, and the little guy that carries the loot sack. Consider it a perk for supporting the game maybe. Thanks for the entertaining game.

    This is an awesome game and love the simple game play. There is just one problem the last level (level 9) the last one at this moment in time 2020/12/29 does not work as I think is should. The problem is the ants collect the food and instead of adding the money to the current amount it subtracts that amount from my total. If this is how it sold work then great, but it complecates the game play.

  • Great game! But... Oct 9, 2020

    By aristongamer8808
    This is a great game and I love it. Seeing the ants grab a small piece of the object is satisfying, and getting more ants, speed, and strength makes it better. A great stress relief since I have anger issues. Although something that could make the game even better is to have less advertisements. Buttons pop up on the ride side around every 45 seconds. Maybe every 2 minutes an ad pops up on the side to give speed or temporary ants. And to make the game great, there should be sound. Quiet sounds of the ants walking and taking a piece of the object, with zen music in the background, and when the object is fully taken apart, it makes a cash sound effect. Less ads and sound would make the game great.

  • Has serious potential, but... Jan 21, 2021

    By Ccutshall
    This game is super cute. There’s something relaxing about watching things being dismembered. That being said, I noticed that on the highest world available, I was actually losing money as the ants returned their foraged good to the colony. It’s not a deal breaker by any means as I still play, but it shows that the game has its glitches to be worked out. Also, what’s up with having to verify you want the 3x multiplayer after EVERY stage in order to have the ants eat the next item (even after you pay to get rid of ads)? I feel if someone pays to remove ads, it’s sorta implied they want the bonus, but maybe that’s just me.

  • Cute game Sep 6, 2020

    By Insanity101
    This game is pretty cute and rather entertaining, and definitely could have a lot of potential. As far as the basic mechanics this game works very well and isn’t glitchy even when you have a fair number of ants. There are plenty of things that could be improved though: 1) a background would be great. 2) more varieties and possibly randomized food. 3)skins, the creator obviously has some respect for ants, but they’re missing out on the truly incredible variety of them that there are. If you created skins for the ants, as well as the nest I think you could make this game far more interesting and get a lot more players.

    My 6 year old loves this game, so I paid 15 bucks to remove ads which made it a million times better, but after playing for like an hour the world is done, and there is no more progression, add more and I would love to give you a 5 star rating. Was asked what I would like, and I would love more levels, and maybe a prestige option or something (restart but with permanent upgrades or something)

  • Good time killer, but very resource heavy Oct 14, 2020

    By biggTigger
    If you look at all the ads as a part of the process it won’t brother you as much. But the game freezes and crashes because of the ads. And it heats my phone up tremendously, and that’s with no other windows open, contrast all the way down, Bluetooth off, and my phone heats up bad from playing this. But I also play Honkai Impact, and I have my settings on HD, 60 FPS and play for an hour and my phone won’t heat up. Why is this game so resource heavy with phones? This is a time killer, it’s ok, lots of grinding, would be nice if they optimize the power usage. Ok for a tap game though . 60% of ads you don’t have to do. But it gives boost so I don’t mind... just do something about the crashing and optimize your resource usage for these devices, or I will have to uninstall

    By matt Geiger
    The game is decent but it's free. Grinding isnt that hard since you always have the option for money or speed or help boosters. At this point however I found out it's best to just accept the cash bonus for watching an ad because it's going to give you an ad either way. Hit the X? Ad. Accept the x3 cash bonus? Ad. And with the rate the ants collect/finish the level, it's quite easy to progress. Just wish the ads didnt happen when I DONT feel like having the bonus.

    Apart from the ads, I completed all of the worlds only to find out that it drains my money? Not sure if that's a bug or a game mechanic but if you're playing the last world, your cash will start to run out when the ants are turning in food and items. I am hoping this is just a glitch but I notified the development email and will find out...

  • An okay game but... Dec 11, 2020

    By Monster4000
    Way too short. Beat every world except for the last one in a day with a couple hours of active play time. There is a “coming soon” notice, so hopefully they make more levels quickly. I didn’t beat the last world because I hit a game breaking glitch. Every time my ants make it back to their hole, I lose money instead of gain it for some reason. It is only an issue in the current final world. Going back a world fixes it, and then breaks again when you go to the last world. Also as with any cheap money grab idle games like this one, expect a lot of ads.
