Another one of Nic's games - with high scores!: 6/17/2016 07:43:42

Have you ever wanted to be an Ant God?

Then ANT: The Growing Swarm is right for you!

Still not convinced?

  • It's browser-based. No ugly download!
  • It's on 2 different websites. Choose the one you prefer most!
  • High scores works on both of them! (I'm thrilled because of this.)


Kongregate: http://www.kongregate.com/games/NinjaNic/ant-the-growing-swarm
GameJolt: http://gamejolt.com/games/ant-the-growing-swarm/157581

Anyway, about the game. You play as an ant where there are several others just like you, but you do not know which one you are at first. After moving around a bit (as in, moving to the corner hahaha) you'll realize which one you are and you must go into the anthill. And that's it. The difficulty increases as you go along. I'm open to suggestions!



Thanks for your time!

yay 113000 but where is the damn anthill now :P

finding the hill is much more complicated then finding your ant at some point.
if you are unlucky other ants will cover the point for quite some time.

Is it possible to implement that other ants can't move onto this spot?

Not a bad idea. Or I just thought, maybe I could "hide" the ants after they do enter the anthill, making it look like they go inside.

Cool game, and I agree with Snife. The anthill can be hard to find.
But the dancing ants fits the music lol

^That was my 1st try too :D

Nope, other way around. Trust me. (around lv 25~ I realized that the ant hill is always in the 'desert' or brownish area. The center of it, i guess.

Cool Game....but it gets repetitive /:

Haha, good score, TBest. I beat it though :p
I just don't want my high score put in the chart.

Yep, you got it. I made that area kinda look like sand, like how the ants have the sand scattered around their main hill.

Thanks! And I know it's a bit boring. It's just a mini-game to pass the time, maybe for when you're waiting for people to join your real time game?

figured that out by lv 5 hehe

really cool concept because it's one that's never been explored before... but sadly it gets awfully repetitive after a while though

DAMN! Semice! Needless to say, you did beat my high score! You must have 200/20 vision.

Well that's unfortunate. Thanks for playing, though!

When I update the game, I'll probably reduce the time. Right now, at 30 seconds, it's way too high. I'm thinking going down to 20 and see how that goes. I might have to wipe the high scores though! >:)

Yeah I increased the difficulty so now the scores are a bit adjusted as well. You can still see his score under the "Old High Scores" tab in Kongregate.

6/19/16 - I just put a huge update on the game. Enjoy!

The bottom row now doesn't work (you cant go in it), you might want to check the other borders too

Yeah, that was part intentional, part consequential. I personally am okay with that "buffer zone" but in that case I should probably make sure all the borders have it.
