Sim Ant is a fun filled game where people get a chance to take command of armies of ants. It isn't too challenging game. The whole point of the game is to try and spread your colony, you are the black ants, through out the yard faster than your computer opponent, which is red. You can either do this by battling or by building new colonies in uninhabited locations. The more ants you have the more food you will have to get.
You have to manage your ants by classes such as: workers, warriors, or gatherers.
But beware when you are moving into new places, there are dangers other than that of the red ants. You must watch out for spiders that scurry around the map eating up your ants. Be careful around them unless you have enough warrior ants to deal with them. Also look out for ant lion dens. If an ant falls in there then it is pretty well dead. When you get inside the house you have to watch out for not only spiders but electrical outlets and poison. If you can manage to get more than half of the house then you will be able to run the people of the house out which means if you own enough
of the yard you win the game.
I like to make sure there are no red ants left on the map before the house gets over ran by your ants. The more ants you can get the better your score will be at the end of the game.
The game also lets you just run through a couple of one on one with the red ant. Here you can choose to build barriers of rock in between the red and the black colonies. Or you could create more black ants or red ants, which ever that you want.
The fastest way to win the game is to start by destroying the red ant colonies by yours so you can expand quicker. To eliminate a red base you must destroy the queen. This will cause you to have control of the square and if you have been making breeders then you will be able to make more queens and expand into new territories.
Even though the graphics and the features are not all that great the quality of the game is still good. This game would most likely be played by early teenagers of older children do to the amount of thinking involved in playing the game.
