I'm gonna scratch the fact the game is free on the internet because Plants vs Zombies is now free as well, but it is still a good game. Whereas Ant War is really the most repetitive and boring game I have ever played.

I bought this out of pure childhood nostalgia and I gotta say it hasn't aged well at all. Horrible sound and visual designs, boring battles with no tactics, just an overall unpleasant experience. Avoid.

This is a 2003-era game of my childhood. It's very grindy, it's very outdated, and some of the mechanics are slightly bugged (like the auto-battle).

But it's still my childhood. Buy it while it's on sale.

Product received for free
I was given a copy by the developer, It does not change my review.
I played this game as a child and loved it, had hours upon hours soaked into this game.
So what changed that made this game get a negative review then?
The game has changed none, and since I have grown I noticed the flaws
  • The stats mean nothing, the percentage for choosing what your ants do does next to nothing, and gives you no information if it actually does anything
  • The game days have no interaction from the player, besides battles, and battles are usually always attacking anyways, as it's really the easiest way to win from what i've seen, and there is no penalty from failing except for game taking longer
  • There is no real lose condition and no feeling of failure, it's just managing numbers and hoping to get lucky
  • The game comes up to random chance
  • you can't spam the battle button anymore, and make the battles go by quickly, so the game is slower and more tedious
    So what are some things that i like about the game atleast?
    The game is atleast as I remember it, so it's kind of nostalgic, but I never see anything truly enjoyable about it now.

Pros:
+ Low-low price.
+ Gameplay is easy and simplistic.
+ Has length if you're willing to go that far.

Cons:
- The simplistic design means that not much is happening on the screen.
- Battle are monotonous and lack any depth or tactic.
- No BGM and the SFX is unpleasant.

I know the game is cheap, but honestly, it's the equivalent of a free, mediocre flash game from 10 years ago (which I think it might literally be). The graphics are awful, with it not being clear which screen elements are part of the UI and which are just there for looks, and the gameplay is dull and repetitive.

You basically take turns adjusting which kinds of ants you want, buying upgrades, and occasionally engaging in a random battle with bugs and such. Every part of this is dull; even the battles consist of clicking "Attack" or "Retreat" and then seeing numbers change.

Also, if you are getting SimAnt vibes, you're wrong; it's more like a crappy business management sim that replaces business with ants. There is no real time aspect to this at all; it's just tweaking numbers and then clicking the button to move on to the next turn and see what happens.

Highly advise against wasting your time on this.

Complete garbage game. Kids under 8 may enjoy the play. Repetitive within 3 mins.
Do not waste your money on this game that was free years ago, and has been repackaged to take advantage of steam.

I agree with the other negative review.
Eventhough this game is cheap, it's just a FREE Flash Game for kids.
I asked google and found this link http://www.freeworldgroup.com/games4/gameindex/ants.htm
There you go, exactly FREE flash game.

I played this game for a while.

-A 10 year game never updated

-Its a Grind game. (so if you like to grind its good)

-Combat is Broken a bit Auto-Fight will not work right in later levels even if your Attack/Def is higher than your attacker.

-Graphics Fastest Vs. Best there is no diferance. (very minor)

-The game works VS you as you level. Making it a Grind to not lose every battle and all of your ants slowly.

-Graphics can be noticed that the further you go the worse they get, Game was finished in a lazy end,

-only the ant graphics are the best in the game.

-seemed like he did not put much time at the end of the game

This is best recomended for your kid. Its a mindless/ easy game nothing hard about it. Better off as a moble or a app game.

Oh man where do I even begin?

Short Review:

Good game but not for everyone. Game is built to grind and can be repetative.
Pretty much one of the oldest clicker games out there.
Maybe get on sale (>50%)
9.5/10

Long Review

So I see many of negative reviews and I do agree with many of them, but I will have to totally recommend this little piece of gem as I grab it as soon as I saw it.

I first played this game maybe 8 or 9 years ago, don't even remember how I even got my hands on it and I totally loved it, made my day everyday seeing my colony grow and fight with the believible surroundings that you can pretty much live it as if it was real. Yes, you may probably get this game for free somewhere out there (just like many games in steam) but I just wanted to own this little gem in my library and also a way to support the devs that make my(as well as many's) childhood a little bit brighter. I mean 2$ that cost less than a cup of coffee. You have no obligation to buy this game so please don't whine about it for it being not free, no one's forcing you to buy the game.

Yes, to point out many reviews out there, that this game is indeed repetitive and is a grinding game. I mean which grinding game is not repetitive? If you don't like to grind then by all means dont get this game, no need to fill the reviews with all the negatives its not fair for the game since you guys are just stating the obvious.

To put it in a polite way, clicker game, is better suited term than a grinding game. This maybe infact one of the oldest clicker games out there. Note that I spent over 16 hours in the game and that contribute to around 6000 days in the in-game time. Say I click around 30 - 60 clicks (combinding fights and whatnot) I spend the time clicking around 270,000 times!! I am not a fan of the clicker genre but man this game is fun and also frustating at times. I sometimes think this is one of those games that are made to make chidrends shut up.

So all in all, its a pretty decent game with hand-drawn annimations and keep in mind this is a pretty darn old game. As I mentioned, this is not a game for everyone, especially those that don't like games being repetitive. Grab it while on sale or even at full price I would say it is worth it.

9.5/10

So I'll get this out of the way, I myself love this game, but that is STRICTLY because I played it when I was like 7 years old. I would never recommend this game to anyone though. It's fraught with flaws.

First of all, the UI is extremely odd, and can be very confusing to navigate. The whole game is a clicking simulator, which isn't bad for some, as games of the like are usually great ways to pass the time, which is one redeeming factor the game has. The art. HOOOOOLY CRAP the art. The whole game is literally clip art images that you can easily find on google, some of which have been animated very simply (we're talking a few pivot points on some images in like, Adobe AfterEffects). The music and sound effects are maddingly repetitive, as well as the "battle" sequences which are just some more clicking (if you win you get some stuff if not oh well).

Essentially, this game is horrendous, if you buy it, use it to waste time and only to do so. If you have some nostalgia to deal with like I did, go right ahead, I love this game sure, but that doesn't make it good. Sort of like loving a terrible, terrible, movie.

TL;DR: I played this game as a kid and loved it, still love it, but it's still terrible.

I vaugely remember playing this back in Elementary School, in 2001. It's basically a free flash clicker game. Can be kinda fun for the nostalgia factor for the first hour or so but the game quickly turns into just watching numbers slowly go up until you finally have 5 million ants and "win", if you can call wasting 5 hours away like that winning.
