Hi!! In the begin of this year I started a little project in my free hours. The main idea came when I played some TD games and see that many games have a predefined path where our targets walk.

Then I remembered a few concepts of AI to make a dynamic path and started to work in one prototype just for fun. This prototype evolved and evolved and evolved... and a first alpha version of my Antbuster game was born!
This is not a easy work to do alone... but I get a lot of suggetions and discussions from many people who helped me to make this game a little better.

I expect that you enjoy this game...

Any suggestion is welcome!

Good old nostalgia game.

I like it. Great game with the exception of one minor detail. Ants do actually follow the path of the first ant to get to the food, because they follow the scent trail the first ant leaves behind. So yes, the trail would be sporadic, but it would still be a trail. However, they could still stray from the trail, just not to the point where they make their own trails. Their paths would end up a lot more condensed, resulting in a horde you might expect to find outside at a picnic.
Sorry for such a long explanation of a small change.
I like that the cake teleports back to the plate after you kill the ant carrying it. Unlike most games like this where the objective inches farther and farther from its "plate."

Lame.
