I never played this game a large amount back in the day and I was just wondering if there’s anything new players should know before starting a game, or any fan patches or special versions of the game that people should check out.
I’ve given this one about an hour so far and i’m really liking it. I will say that when I try to micromanage the caste & behavior system it seems like my colony always die, so i’ve just taken to leaving them set to default values.
I’m playing the Windows 3.1 version (for DOS game club!? Shock Horror!), so I’m not sure how much of this will translate to the DOS version, but I didn’t find the tutorial particularly helpful. I got a much better idea of how to play the game by reading through the manual with the game open.
I’ve only done one “quick game” so far, which I beat incredibly easily by keeping the pause button on. This way time only progresses while your ant is moving, so by the time I got to the red ant nest, they only had like one or two workers ambling about the surface, and I demolished the unguarded queen with about 5 soldiers.
