A hugely enjoyable RTS featuring the only ants you won’t want to nuke with powder from the garden centre

Ant Raid HD Review

by on December 16, 2011

Most cartoon ants have it relatively easy, fooling dimwitted cartoon aardvarks or featuring in loosely disguised Woody Allen Hollywood movies. So spare a thought for the diminutive heroes in Ant Raid.

Once, the forest floor was a joyous and harmonious place; now, all the insects have been turned into ravenous, destructive mutants, with a serious case of the munchies—and ants are on the menu. Ant Raid has you fighting back over dozens of levels (and unlockable endless modes and challenges), using simple touch-based controls that send ants to attack incoming foes, activate power-ups and occasionally squish insects directly in an act of ‘divine retribution’.

It’s pretty much Ants vs Zombies, but Ant Raid’s controls are more organic than those in PopCap’s game, and the oddball sense of humour and design is, if anything, superior. Our only criticism, bar the game’s slightly repetitive nature, is it falls between two camps: a bit lightweight for dedicated RTS fans and too tough for casual gamers. Otherwise, it’s f-ant-astic. (Sorry.)
