I like tycoon games. I don’t download many app store games, but one day I decided to see what the app store had to offer. I saw that this was a tycoon game and sometimes I just like clicking on things to make numbers rise. This game is so close to being good, but the fact that you HAVE to watch an ad after you beat the level makes the game nearly unplayable. This app isn’t worth the $9.99 that removes the ads. Maybe $5, but all I’m doing is looking at ants run back and forth. I’d actually gladly watch a few of the ads that give you bonuses, but I don’t want to because the developers got so greedy that they decided to force you to sit through an ad after every level. When levels only take about 12 seconds to get though, you’re staring at an ad for longer than you’re looking at ants. It probably gets as bad as 30 seconds of level, 30 seconds of ads sometimes. This game should be called Idle Ads. They claim in the newest update that there’s new sound design but the only sound that this game makes is the audio from ads. Ads ads ads. I get the feeling that the developer(s) don’t care because they probably make $200 off of each person from ad revenue. Apple’s not going to do anything about it. So the developers are going to sit there raking in money. And here I am, beating a level, closing the app and reopening it just to get past a level without having to sit through a 30 second ad.
So for anyone reading reviews, it’s a good game. Not super busy like some other idle games so it’s easier to look at. It’s fun to watch as well; the early game is kind of relaxing to look at.
For the developers, I’m excited to play it. I like that the game isn’t aggressive to look at. Watching the ants go back and fourth makes me keep the app open longer than some of the other apps like this (trust me, I have a lot lol.) The thing that eventually makes me look away is how the ants start running through each other; it sorta gets hard to follow, then it’s just not as nice to look at. Ants in the wild create little “highways” where they form lanes of traffic. I think that adding something similar would really increase the time that people keep the app open, and squeezing a few more add views in there as well.
Thanks for the app and keep up the good work!
I GET you need some form of revenue, ads or a paid app, but there is a time and a place for it, you cant play even 1 minute of this game without ad bombardments. I dont mind a certain amount of ads in a game, but when you are shoving an ad bonus every 20 seconds it makes never want to play this game again. Want 2x resources? Watch an ad, how long does the buff last?? 1 minute. 2x speed? 1 ad = 1 minute boost. Im not here to watch commercials all day, and i cant even get a proper experience of the game to even want to spend $10 to “enjoy” the game. Also, its an idle game, it will never be worth $10 to “play” a brain dead game.
I wanted to like this game, but the ads and cost is dumb. And i cant recommend this game to anyone, unless you have $10 to just throw away.
It is a fun game, and could have a lot of promise. I have found 1 bug or issue i was not aware of before... I have made it to the last level and every time the ants bring sections of the food back, it decreases my money amount and will even bring it to a negative amount, meaning i am unable to purchase any upgrades unless i move back to other worlds or when the entire thing is removed. After reading a handful of other reviews it doesn’t seem like anyone else has had this problem, but perhaps it’s just my device that has this issue, but i have all the latest updates on my device. so I’m not sure what the issue is.
Ok I like this game because it is fun and relaxing and makes you i dont know see stuff.... it’s been one or two weeks....and I so happen to click on this game to see how much money I got. And I come back to MY MONEY GONE!!! WHERE DID IT GO?! I still give this a 5 star though because I still have all my ants and stuff that I brought. So that’s good. Maybe it’s just my device. I hope it’s just my device. If it is sorry for uhh yelling. Have a good day and stay safe in this Covid world
It’s by no means a complicated game but I like it. The worlds while not earth shattering give a change of items. I don’t know if I’d like it half as much if I didn’t get the no ad package but it’s pleasant to play while I listen to audio books. My biggest complaint is that I have to tap to receive my money at the end of each round which makes it so it’s not very idle. Other than that? Good game.
I like this game, it is very entertaining, and kinda satisfying. But this game relies on ads to much, after every level it gives you the option to move on or watch an add to make the money 3x but if you choose not to watch an add, it make you watch an add anyway. I absolutely hate this and I know I am not the only person who is annoyed by this. Please change that and I will give 5 stars
Every time you want to do something in this game, you need to watch a 30-45 second ad and it’s getting really annoying, you end up spending more time watching ads than actually playing the game. I know there’s an option to get rid of ads for $9.99 but I’m not paying $9.99 for a fricken mobile game. I wouldn’t recommend this game unless you’re willing to pay the money for no ads.
It’s a fun and simple idle game. Not much to say. However I have a glitch in the most recent world which seems to make it take money away from me instead of giving it to me when the ants bring stuff back to the hole. I have a screenshot which shows my money at -375902739472937 or something like that. Don’t know if the developers are active here but I hope they fix it soon.
On my screen there were SIX AD OPTIONS DEAR GOD I instantly uninstalled it. You shouldn’t have to worry about where you touch because there is an ad there. The stupid ant that carries out an ad takes way too long to go away unless you touch it and click the X. I get you’re trying to make money off of a free game but there is a line that not even major app pumpers cross
