  • 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!

    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.

    I really like this game. It cute and easy but I have a couple complains. 1) Theres no sound to the game. I would enjoy it even more if there was some kind of background music or something. 2) The all white background is a little bland to look at. If there was some sort of background that would fit would be awsome!! If theres anyway to get a background and sounds to the game I'd would change my 4 stars to a 5 stars.😊

  • 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.

    Cute and fun game, I love the concept. (The ants are adorable). However, $9.99 is really steep for an ad free idle game. I'd recommend adding tiers of "ad-free" like $2.99 for no ads between levels and $4.99(ish) for no ads for bonuses and between levels. I don't think I'll continue playing because the ads make me feel less relaxed, which is something I look for in an idle game.

    Too many ads. They're all optional but you're constantly being asked to watch another. Power-ups last 30 seconds at best. Speed boost, double bucks, extra ants... One after the other popping up. After each food is completely dismantled, your asked again to watch another ad to triple the level-complete bonus. There is an overwhelming push to get you to buy the "no ads" package, which I found too expensive. Overall I like the art, concept, and ease of use, but 95% ads and 5% game is too much.

  • 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

    Got to the final world. Some updates caused the collection of food to decrease the available money. But when I come out the world and enter some other world, it increase in positive. But when I'm inside the last world, it decreases the same amount it's supposed to increase. I want to max out the upgrades. Help me asap.

    I don't usually write reviews but this game needs one. I think this game is created just to make money from ads, 1 minute into the gameplay and there are 5 buttons flashing to watch an ad for double money, free money, squad bonus, whatever that means, etc. After i finished the first stage it presented me with free money (small sum) and the option to watch an ad for more. I tried to go for the small sum and it played the ad anyway. This game it's greedy and it was made only with revenue in mind.

    This game is riddled with bugs (not the ants) but fun and has potential. The game crashes every chance it gets. Lots of long advertisements and now my ants are making me negative money. Yup, they're dissolving food and bringing it back but they no longer make me money, they just take it all away. I'm negative billions in in-game money. Please fix these issues and this would be a great game!

  • 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.

    I love this game, I have bought every upgrade on every world, and being able to go to every world and see the food dissolve within seconds is so satisfying. I do wish you make a way to get rare ants with out having to pay real money, I've never had one and I want one. You should also add costumes. And I really hope you don't give up on the game. And stop making new worlds, I want as much money as possible.

  • Amazing. Seriously. Oct 13, 2020

    By And_rew321
    Out of all the idle games I have downloaded and played, this is by far the best. I have been playing it for about two days now and already completed the game, but don’t fret. The game is highly satisfying. In most idle games the beginning is easy and satisfying but towards the end or middle you feel like upgrades are to pricy, or you loose ambition to play. This game keeps you interested and the upgrades are cheap and easy. The gameplay is satisfying, so keep it up guys. This is amazing and I can’t wait for other maps.

  • 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 a real great game! Watching the food dissolve is oddly satisfying. Now there is a couple of things that need to be said. 1.) The ants should have different optional skins that dont have any benefits, just different from one another. 2.) The ants should have challenges to interact with other creatures. Thanks for your time!

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • Good, just something that bothers me. Oct 24, 2020

    By alex Alejandre
    Overall, the game is actually pretty good. Upgrading, more ants, different foods and worlds, very entertaining. But it would be a better game if you could just make one thing and that is ads. If you could make it so that ads would only appear if you want them to, not to say no to watching an ad, then watching an ad anyways with no reward. It’s really annoying. But if you could change the way it would give you an ad when you say no at the question, the game would be perfect.

    Nice little Fun game to pass the time. HOWEVER, the devs are absolutely stupid if they are going to charge you $10.00 for no ads! This game is not worth that much! $0.99 sure maybe even $1.99. Never in my life would I ever pay that much for an idle game and I cannot believe they would charge that much. Total Rip-Off!

    I like the simplicity of it and how there is no prestige system(l hate those). The only thing I don’t like is how many ads it shoves in your face. I know a great idle game out there, more complex and visually better. I deleted it not because it had micro transactions but it’s prestige system. In fact, I loved their way of handling micro transactions. They put it in the menu and the menu’s name was saying something along the lines of “How to support the developer”. Be more like that c:

    The first thing you think when you start to play is: "looks like another money grab". And that is 100% accurate. Everywhere you look you see things trying to make money off of you and the gameplay is boring and there is no storyline or reason! It's like watching grass grow, no point!

  • Lost potential Oct 16, 2020

    By Dana1776
    It’s too bad really. You will beat the measly 3 levels in very short time. It seams as though the dev just wanted to push something out quickly to generate ad revenue, on the topic of ads at the end of every level ,which only takes seconds to complete, you are offered the opportunity to watch an ad in return for a triple bonus. Don’t be fooled they are going to make you watch the ads regardless of which ever option you choose

  • Fake optional ADs Nov 11, 2020

    By Zawajiri
    Biggest gripe with f2p games that are simple and mostly entertaining as watching a fish tank is that they have regular mandatory ads every 10 or so minutes, but in this case here it gives you the option to watch an “AD” to triple earnings, but you can close it out, but if you do you still get forced to watch a 30 second AD interrupting play and not getting the triple earnings, that is predatory and wrong. I’d normally accept f2p games if the AD watching was a choice to earn some buffs to speed up progress and watch numbers go up but if I don’t have a choice and especially if it is perceived as a choice only to get punished, well that’s pretty messed up.

    Game was fun before this recent update. Now upgrades are ridiculously expensive. After finishing a round, the rewards are abysmal (used to be on par with how much the next upgrade would be). And now popups everywhere to get you to pay really money. Awesome update!!!!! NOT. Maybe the developer should ask themselves why they have a 3.4 review average and actually read the reviews.

    The game itself is adorable and I love it. But the ads are awful, they say they are optional but even between foods if I click not to watch the ad I have to sit through one anyways, and to make ads go away permanently it's $10 and that is a high price. A few bucks okay sure, but $10 is alot for a game that crashes more then half the time I launch it.
