A-mazing Ants is a retro style maze game with over 250 single player mazes and 30 two player mazes . And if that is not enough a full level editor so you can build your own mazes. Also the game has a great retro feel with an awesome soundtrack
The object of the game is to move your ant to the finish line but standing in the way are the enemy ants. You can attack the ants with your player ant but your odds of killing the ant are at best 50/50.
When you do kill an ant though you are awarded a life but when you die you lose a life so it balances out.
You can also build tunnel blocks to either (A)block the path of the enemy ants (B)Protect your newly activated allied launcher and (C) help steer your ants in the right direction.
There are some powerups available to give your player ant a boost these are located on the mazes or awarded if you kill a large ant.
A-mazing Ants was my first indie game and it's been a while since I done a major update on the game. Last summer I worked on some improvements to game save and load functions bringing in elements from my game Gavin's Quest and making the game work in full screen mode.
I started this update a few weeks back as I always go back to my older games and look at things I can do to improve them. So for the next little while before my next gamedev project I will be working on some more improvements to this game.
The bulk of this update is improvements to the games look. I overhauled a lot of the graphics including some new backgrounds and new game HUD's.
The other changes I am working on is to get game control support working again. The original GM8 had the game control D&D functions built in and I had all these working good. When I switched the game over these functions didn't work as well anymore so I went back and worked on getting them back up and working. I also done the same for my other games as well.
The other change I made was updating the late game mazes in the Black Ant Story. I reworked the inventory system and got rid of the split screen view opting for a closer view. All these improvements make the game look a lot better and I have been applying everything I have learned working on other projects to try to make this game the best it can be.
I done an update to the demo as well which I uploaded here so folks can try it out. I will be working on some more improvements to this and my other games.
Thank you very much for reading and have a great day.
