Description of SimAnt: The Electronic Ant Colony

SimAnt was released by Maxis and is part of the Sim series. In the nineties, several Sim like games were created, Sim Ant is a ant colony simulator. You have to manage your ants by digging tunnels, find food, protect the queen, expand your territory, fight against many enemies, including the evil red ants ! The conquest of the whole garden and the house will make you victorious. The game was a hit with more than 100,000 copies sold and was released on many platform. SimAnt was included in the SimClassic pack. OM wrote : …This was one of the few games that the early pirate groups actively encouraged the “if you like it, buy it!” dogma. When it came out, it actually outsold SimCity and the various cosmetic packs, and there was almost no negativity seen in the reviews published in the plethora of trade rags at the time. Even PC Week gave it an excellent review, and those choads back then were notorious for hating anything that wasn’t Lotus 1-2-3. …IIRC, Maxis toyed around with the idea of a new version of SimAnt. Same gameplay, but if you chose to actively control an ant, instead of the “Dig Dug” view, you became the and and played it as an FPS! Never went beyond comments made by Maxis staffers at the trade shows, but talk about it went on until “Streets of SimCity” came out and royally tanked, which killed off any ideas of FPSing any other Maxis sims. Bastards.
