  • 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

    Great game. Great concept. But it lacks content. I played for a couple of days. Got my colony up to a good size. Now I don't have anything to do. Big map... but nothing to explore. Maybe put in some rivers and rocks or something? Have more bugs! Spides only come once every 24 hours? It should be every hour. Maybe make some other bugs you can't kill? I tried the battle a few times, but I dont have any creatures (cause they only come once every 24 hours), so I never win.

  • 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.

    Could you add more stuff (anything) ? And another way to get battle tokens, Also can you add another way to spend resources? And also could you somehow make it so this could be played offline? Other than that, the game is also. Oh Yeah, and could you make it that other ants and species try to invade your colony occasionally. As well as making other ants that do not have to be unlocked like fire ants, and just make some that patrol the area and take resources like fire ants?

  • 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.

    Sucks that you HAVE to login. I went guest mode, cause I hate loging into things. IT DELETED MY PROGRESS, AND THE STUPID SCIENTIST TALKS SO SLOW! There's no way to skip!! Why is there even a scientist inside an ant hive anyways? Shouldn't it be the queen that tells you what to do. Either way I hate this game at the moment, as It is currently a waste of time. Made a new google account just to sign in, Ya'll better not contact me with spam messages or sell my information! >:(

    Fun time waster. However it is a huge grind to try and upgrade. Especially with the resin or honeydew that only comes every 6hrs. Maybe if it collected offline and we could upgrade that over time, earn 25% offline, upgrade it to 35% or something. Also if we could select multiple sources so we could collect leaves, seeds etc from more than 1 source? Game freezes whenever i try and fuse creatures or it freeze half way through the loading screen

    It was fun at the begin and then as you grow you get bored, 1. Farming resin is pointless... for starters collect 7500 using a very difficult way to collect max 140 at a time..takes forever and you will keep doing it everytime you want to upgrade queen, 2. Your ants idle if you close the game... so you need to open it all the time to farm resources which you need for building army and upgrading... 3. You are limted to 10 soldiers army and 10 soldiers garrison, all this pushing me to uninstall it

    Actually, this ‘was’ a fun game. Until I noticed that when I play as guest, my game doesn't save! It was addictive and everything! But that is the only problem! It can't save my game in guest! Hope you fix this. I am looking forward to the update! So please!! Fix this as soon as possible! That's it.

    Love this game. I have a few qualms with it, but A for effort. I'd appreciate if you made the resin and honeydew payments lower. 7,500 is realllly steep. Since the update the aphid farm trek is too hard. Barely bring back 3 honeydew now. But, thanks for making such a cute, pretty realistic game. As someone who interacted with ants/ant hills as a kid, it's pretty spot on Lol The battling makes it unique and gives extra options if you so choose. Loved the Valentine's event. Wish is lasted longer.

  • 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☺️😁.

    Fun, but doesn't save my progress & there is no option anywhere to save progress or login. I don't want to start from the beginning everytime as it takes way to long to get anywhere in real-time. Edit: thnx for the response - though this is what I do, but still no progress saved. Edit: hi, that's what I've been doing, but this morning it went into my game again, must've been a small bug 🐛. I've rated 5* now, as you guys are absolutely awesome at customer service. Thank 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!

    This game in general is amazing, I love the game mechanics. I just wish you could add when you defeat a creature, and get that page, kill or capture. If your main slots are full, then you can’t capture it. If your storage slots are empty , you still can’t capture it. I would like the option to be able to click the army button while one the capture or kill page. I lost 4 rare creatures which is my fault for forgetting that but I would love to see that quality of life update. One bug I have currently is when I get killed with a bombadear in my own world, I jus spin around forever and don’t die. I have to log out to stop that.

    Brilliantly addictive but definitely a lack of content, I've been playing less then a week and already maxed my food storage so I now can have 150 worker ants, but that's disappointing I want more workers, the grind for mats to upgrade buildings is fine, but grinding resin and honey is a huge difference, there should be more ways of earning resin and honey and more things to do in map, as it stands there's only a handful of things to do, really hoping there's lots more updates with new things

  • 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

    Stumbled upon this last night and it is a fun game, I find it creative probably because I haven't seen a game quite like this before. The reason why I only put 4 stars in is because it's not an idle game and I have school and other important matters. I can make the game run whilst I do stuff but I'll have to check every now and then. Nonetheless, its a good way to waste time and would definitely recommend you to play it.

    By Very frustrated
    The game is fun and I really enjoy the concept. What I would like to see is the ants auto gather the resource they are assigned to at a reduced rate (say 33% or 40%) in the background when the phone is off or the app is closed. It’s impractical to wait for the resources to build up while the app is on. All your doing the majority of the time is staring and waiting, so why not have them gather when you away from the phone. Also, the spider regeneration and red aunt colony regeneration time should be cut in half. Those times are WAY to long. I would also like to see the quests that are completed automatically moved to the top for easy claiming. It would be nice to have some way of searching the map without having to move the player ant. Maybe scroll with two fingers? Can we have the option to send the player any to a location by tapping on the small map and he automatically goes there? It would be near 5 stars for me if those two things were changed/added. Thanks!

  • Needs more content Jan 7, 2021

    By gabriel granados
    This game has a great concept and overall has executed it well but there are a few issues. I’ve seen many people complain about it but I think the matchmaking is fine and once you level up the soldiers are pretty easy and quick to breed but a new type of power during battles would be nice since most people just stack everything in one room. I think the timers on basically everything are too long and a new way to get pheromones, honeydew, and resin a bit more easily would be great. Pheromones In my opinion should have another use along with its current use. Maybe something new on the island for newer, more casual players, to help them progress. I love this game and a content overhaul would make this game better and would overall attract more players.
