The Last AntLion

Share Collapse

Author Comments

The Queen Ant doesn't like filthy half-ant, half-lion hybrids like you living in her nefarious kingdom. She has made it her life's mission to eradicate your kind from the earth in order to restore the purity of the ant race. Continent by continent, her Army Ants have captured every single AntLion in existence and forced them to participate in her cruel gladiatorial games.

It amuses her to watch you fight to the death against her powerful army. With each wave of her wand, another set of ants are unleashed to defeat you. Nobody has ever made it through all 8 waves. Using your magical bow, you'll be forced to battle the Worker Ants, Fire Ants, Ghost Ants, Mummy Ants, Pharaoh Ant, Electric Ants, Dinosaur Ants and Army Ants. If you manage to make it that far, you'll have to battle the Queen herself to survive.

Loot hundreds of enemies, open magical chests, find hidden items and purchase epic rewards, including Armor of the AntLion, Book of the Dead, Cloak of Flames, Boots of Bravery, Ring of Lightning, Fire Arrows, Belt of Haste, Amulet of Time, Quivers, Bombs, Potions and Keys.

It's time to get revenge and redeem your fallen comrades. YOU are The Last AntLion. Can you survive?

Love the fluidity, reaction times and art style! You could add different modes, more weapons and some continuity to it, some simple customization or rpg elements would do wonders!.

Thank you for playing brofistoflove! If I decide to make a sequel, I plan to add different modes, more items, and possibly even a story line. I'm glad you liked it =)

Man, really cool concept and gameplay. Amazing attention to details, really love it!

velketor responds:

Thank you for playing marck-musician! I appreciate the kind words =)

A really cool brawler! Not only is it nice and challenging, it gets to the point quickly by delivering the story through the game; both things I love. I also love how enemies have to actually attack you with animations instead of just touch you (certain fire enemies excepted). Intuitive design and it has all-around good polish through the little touches like screenshake, squish/stretch, and a unique death animation for each enemy, among other things!

Only thing I was annoyed with was that roar felt really underutilized, and the army ants; I can get through every other enemy without anything by my wits, but to kill those it seems like you need bombs, and if you don't, welp, tough luck, restart. Unwinnable situations like that can suck (unless I'm not seeing another way to fight them).

velketor responds:

Thank you for the feedback FuturecopLFG! I love constructive criticism like yours. I'm so happy to see that you appreciated the challenge and enjoyed the animations and the little things that make the game so unique.

Roar is definitely underutilized and probably imbalanced. I should have thought of a more clever way to use it or taken it out altogether. It was a feature I really wanted in the game, but should have put more thought into it.

The Army Ants can only be defeated by bombs, which has been this games biggest downfall. The majority of players hate that, and I viewed it as a challenge. So many players have expressed their distaste for it that I will be sure to add alternate ways to kill Army Ants in the sequel.

Thank you again for the excellent feedback!

May the pope give me the strenght to defeat all the sarazants

velketor responds:

Thank you for playing bmbardier0! LOL @ your comment =p

wow, it's very difficult

velketor responds:

Thank you for playing RedSoul92! Yes, The Last AntLion is challenging. Some consider it very hard. I am a firm believer that video games have become far too easy so I tried to create a game that truly required you to learn how to win through trial, error, luck and skill.
