  • Great for the hardcore player, okay for the casual player Nov 11, 2020

    By Magikarp's boi
    I’m app purchases and pay to win are highly debatable aspects of all games, but at my point in the game I haven’t had to worry about that. The game is very entertaining with many different mechanics from battling, gathering resources, building your army of worker ants, and upgrading your chambers. I also really appreciate the scientific accuracy in fire ants farming aphids, and the informational bits underneath every chambers info. One thing I feel I dislike the strongest though, is that ants do not gather recourses while the player has the application closed. I really can’t think of any reason that this wouldn’t be feature, and I believe this would make the user experience for the casual player exponentially better. Collecting resin would be a hard work around, as every now and again a worker or a soldier ant will be killed by a termite, but a good answer might be a similar system to that of the red ant colony’s mechanics. From what I can tell, the game prides it’s self on being as scientifically accurate as possible while still remaining interesting, and I don’t know enough about the world of insects to be able to tell if it would actually work like that. But if the point of the game is to educate as many people as possible, then to reach a wider audience, the game must be more well suited for the casual player.

  • 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

    Very good game, but there is a problem. I wanted to record a video while recording progress and I clicked on restart progress and typed in ´yes´ but now the game is stuck at loading screen after I click start and will not load anymore :( I tried everything, uninstalling the game reinstalling doesn´t work. It just stuck there at the loading screen. Plz fix it so I can play it and finish the video. Thanks!!!

  • Good game with potential. Oct 30, 2020

    By NaughtSean
    The game itself is very addictive however it does get repetitive at times and lacks content after a couple days of play. Firstly there are really only 5 major things to do in the game. Capture the red ant hill, capture the aphid farms, kill/capture creatures Battle other players and wait for your ants to collect resources. Most of the time you are just waiting around doing nothing while you either breed soldier ants or wait for your ants to collect resources which becomes boring very quickly. On top of this the playable ant can’t really do anything special. I feel like with more things on the map and slightly reduced spawns the game could be much more fresh. As well as this, it is very tedious and resource depleting to train soldier ants, only for them to all be lost in one battle. Honeydew is also far too difficult to get and more sources of it should be implemented. The Halloween update was a good addition although it really didn’t add much if you aren’t willing to pay for more pumpkins. On a final note, upgrade times seem absurd on the late game side of things, waiting 7+ days for a single upgrade. Overall, with more content and polishing this game could be very popular and become a great way to pass time or play with friends if expanded.

    I loved this game until I realised that that creature(24hrs) and red ant(12hrs) timers where on in game only timers. The upgrade system works when offline but any other timers only count down while in game. Do not get this game unless you intend to afk while connected to a charger. This game is very heavy on the battery (which I dont have a problem with right now since I am currently stuck in bed due to back injury) but that fact that I have to be in the game too get enemies is a let down.

  • Great game... Oct 6, 2020

    By StarlitOff
    So, I really fell in love with this game. It’s fun but there are some things I think should get a second look. My 2 main issues are the creature hunting and the PVP. So, you need to breed soldier ants to take on creatures. You need about 6 to defeat a tarantula, which is what the tutorial suggests. After you defeat the thing, it takes 24hrs for another to respawn on the map. That’s a bit much considering all you do is gather resources and the occasional red ant colony attacks. You can attract creatures by using pheromones which you get by attacking other players. Thing is, the matching is horrible. My first battle was against a team of 50 versus my 6. What’s worse is, once your team dies, you have to build your army again from 0. Because of the matching, it makes me never to want to battle other players at all and hope no one tries to come after me. I mean, it took me an hour or 2 to build up my army to 20 and was wiped by an army of 60, causing me to start building my army again. Like I said though, this game is great but if those issues aren’t addressed, it’ll end up becoming dull and annoying as time goes on.

    A bit disappointing due to a bug. Hey Dev team. Your ant queen is having issues eating fungus. She appears to be stuck in an eating loop, it's happened multiple times. It also prevents me from upgrading the queen lair. It seems like a really great game!! I can't wait to play it once this bug is fixed!

    I dont know how matchmaking in this game works, the match is always unbalance in my case. When I'm challenging players, my opponent always have multiple insects defending its base. FYI, I just started playing this game so how am I suppose to attack a base like that if Im just using soldier ants!!. I cannot earn pheromones properly and make my army strong if my opponents are always like that....FIX THE MATCHMAKING!!!

    Its a great game. Enjoyable and addicting. It has beta written in the corner of the opening menu which implies that its under development still, so its understandable if it has technical problems from time to time. However, ive had a ton. From losing all of my ants and resources, to all of my pheromones, several times. Even lost a titan beetle that I just defeated and planned to capture because the game either crashes, freezes, or sends me to my home screen. My user is Cynical88. Hope I get comp

  • Very fun and addicting Nov 2, 2020

    By Archie Leonard
    I have been playing this game for a while now and it has been one of the best games I have played in my life. This game is great if you want a game to grind and/ or chill. Pocket ants discord server is very active and everyone on discord helps out everyone good or bad. Everyone is friendly and the game is overall great. I have spent a few dollars on the game which you don’t have to; to be good. The best person is free to play. Pocket ants just finished up it’s first event which was great it released a brand new creature. This game does not get boring after a few days this is a game you won’t put down for a week straight. In discord my name is NightFallA if you see my I will be happy to help you. As I said this is probably my favorite game, so I would download if I was you☺️😁.

  • 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!

  • Needs a little more Sep 26, 2020

    By constantlight983
    I have loved the game so far. It’s very fun and at first there was many things I could accomplish but now that I am on my second day of playing it tends to get boring. I defeated the red ant army and the spider and know all I am doing is collecting resources to upgrade my army and it tends to get boring. If there was any way you could add more giant creatures and more ant colonies to defend against it would create more action and it would make it more fun. I have loved the game so far though and really enjoy it but it just needs to have more instead of just going against over powered online players and defeating ant colonies and giant creatures every 24 hours.

  • 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

    The game is really enjoyable. I however feel like the player is limited on what he can do. Such as help fight or do a strategic formation because that would help with defending the honey dew and the formations could have more uses. You could add upgrades if you use either of these 2 suggestions as well such as player's health or how many ants you can put in a formation.

    Very fun. Alot of potential but can get boring very quickly. Maybe add more terrain so that the map and area is more interesting to look at or just add more types of creatures that are not just to he captured like bees or wasps that will occasionally attack you and you have to defend the nest like in waves. Other than that maybe add some customization like choosing the color of the ants and allowing you to choose where your nest is located.

  • 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 wish the game had more balance for its pvp, you are told to do pvp and earn 3 pheromone for the tutorial, but there seems to be no real balance in the matchmaking, you start with a 50 soldier limit and are pitted against people with hundreds of soldiers and captured bugs that, like the stink bug, can instantly wipe your entire army out with a single attack.

  • 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
