Save the ants

Author Comments

This is a different concept, a bit experimental to break the monotony, and these are the instructions:
Use your mouse to select ants and click to "bubblelize them" before the fireballs touch them. If a fireball touches you, the game is over.
Instead of killing ants, why not saving them? :)

One question

If they want to be saved so badly,...why do they run at the fire. Kinda lame,..but programmed well.

Acreonte responds:

why do they run at the fire? erm... well, you see, at school they were taught how to collect food properly and things like that but they never paid attention to "how to run away from the fire" class as the teacher was a boring old ant. :D
Thanks for your comment reddeye5

Fix some stuff

First of all, I like the graphics and animation, and simple gameplay. It needs some music and more creativity to it though.
Also, the AI in this game stinks. The ants constantly RUN INTO THE FIREBALLS. Its hard to protect all of them at once. Also, it sucks that you can't touch the fireballs, because in one swoop, you're dead. Include some lives, health bars, checkpoints, or something so you won't have to restart all over from something kinda unfair.

Acreonte responds:

thanks Aznime, you're right about music and other stuff needed.
Thanks again for your comments!

ummm... 1 improvement needed


they come from off screen straight into the fireballs half the time

Acreonte responds:

the thing is that the ants have "artificial intelligence" if you can call that "intelligence" :D so they go to wherever they want to, they might need more "intelligence" though...

Sorta Fun

It stinks that you can't touch the fire.

Acreonte responds:

interesting. Might not be bad that you can't touch the fire but might be bad that you've got only one life...
thanks for your comment Randy


I enjoyed this game. The game play was good. A simple concept but it was enjoyable. The difficulty was just right. The graphics were good were good and the sound effect were perfect. Some music in the background would have been a good idea. Over all this game was good. Very simple, but fun. Keep up the good work.

Acreonte responds:

you're right, is missing background music.
Hey Hemlok, thanks for your comment!
