I wasnt really sure what to expect when I downloaded Ant Raid. I thought it might be another bug smasher game. There is a little of that in there, but there is also some other strategies needed to beat the levels. The overall plot of the game is to keep the ant’s home save from the other insects. The insects have been infected and are pretty much zombies. Okay, that right there grabbed my attention.
The controls are pretty easy to use. Most of the controls are tapping the screen in one spot then another. Some times a press and drag is required to gather a larger group of ants. When the divine power is all powered up, tapping the enemy bugs will shoot lightening at them or other times a tap on them will squish them. Pressing and dragging a finger on the screen will help look around and see some of the enemies coming farther away.
As the ants are fighting the evils snails and bees, the good ants will get hurt. When this happens, healthy ants need to be sent to out to get them and bring them back to the base camp to be healed. The strategy comes into play when there are a lot of enemies on the screen. There are only so many good ants to fight.
I thought the game was pretty easy, then all of a sudden they drop the hammer and it gets pretty challenging. They have all kinds of enemies coming out of the woods and attacking. The goal is to kill enough of them to be able to use the divine powers. If this doesn’t happen they will overrun the base. The enemies don’t really move all that fast but some of the bees will move around making it more difficult for the ants to attack them.
