Ant Force
In Brief
Ant Force is a decent 2D artillery game with three modes of play; featuring ants versus ants and ants versus ants and flying wasps.
Introduction
The explosive ammo used in Ant Force is capable of destroying the environment, so you need to be careful when working out the trajectory of your attack because you can destroy the local environment around yourself that will leave you more exposed to enemy fire. Aim at flying crates to pick up power ups that create protective shields or be able to heal yourself if you've taken a hit. Your ant also carries a jet pack enabling it to move to more favourable positions over rough terrain quickly. There are two single player modes and a local multiplayer (player vs. player) mode.

The Game
Ant force is another artillery game not dissimilar to the one we got last week called Tank Impact, but is a superior version, with decent graphics and better game play. There are various levels that randomly appear with a variety of backgrounds and environments that appear in different sequences, making it look like there are many different level types. Each level is totally destructible. It reminds me a little of the early worms games with respect to the graphics. Anyone who has played the original Q Basic Gorillas from DOS 3.1 (way back in the early 90's) or the 2D version of Scorched Earth will recognize this game. If you enjoyed any of those, you'll be in for a treat with this one. I thoroughly enjoyed playing it and will be returning to it occasionally.
If you want a 3D artillery version, get Scorched 3D, which was being updated for years by the developer until around 2016 and is available as freeware. I first came across Scorched Earth 3D well before my accident, so it has to be well over 15 years old. I've been playing it on and off ever since and only a few weeks before Tank Impact was given away booted it up for a good hour of artillery blasting fun, using a multitude of different rockets and bombs; with excellent graphics. Personally I think it's one of the best artillery games ever made. You can find the original download page for the 3D version HERE and for the original which also requires DOS Box installed you'll find HERE. There's a good tutorial on how to use DOS Box originally posted by a former moderator Wizzard of Oz over in the giveaway forums HERE
We were given a similar 3D version way back in 2007 called 'Scorch an Island', which you can check out HERE. The developer of that game is still selling it, but from my memory Scorched 3D is far superior and free.

Ant Force has three modes of play, Mission, Game and Multiplayer. The Mission mode is a single player mode where you face off against enemy ants, The game mode is similar to the mission mode except it also includes enemy wasps that fly. The game mode also includes indicators along the bottom of the game field that tell you how many enemy ants and/or wasps are pitted against you. The local multiplayer is similar to the mission game with no indicators or wasps included, plus you face off against only one combatant. You'll randomly see balloons with crates attached flying over the battlefield from both directions. These are power-ups that give you one of three things, better ammo, a temporary force field that protects you from at least one direct hit or a health buff that brings your health back to 100% if you've taken a previous hit. It only takes two direct hits to kill your ant or enemy ants. To gain one of these power-ups you have to hit the balloon or box with one of your shells.
When starting a level you may face various numbers of enemy ant combatants and as you progress you'll face more numbers including flying wasps. The AI is very good; I lost more times than I won over 20 plus levels, though most levels involved more than one enemy to my single ant. The trick is to move around a lot. An additional plus with today's artillery game is that there is a local multiplayer mode included. With both of you playing from the same keyboard.

Ant Force is much simpler to play than Scorched Earth 3D that I've linked to above, and is ideally suited to coffee breaks or moments where you may have several minutes of spare time to fill; though I did play for a lot longer and never got bored. Controls are simple; move your Ant left or right using the A & D keys, adjust the insects barrel using the W & S key and use the E key to adjust the power of your shot. The longer you press the power key the more powerful the shot and the further it will travel.. Use the Q key to change ammo types and to fly upwards using the jet pack use the space bar. When you use the jet pack you can see the fuel indicator reduce quickly. when exhausted you will start to descend. Letting go of the space bar will fill the jet pack immediately and can be reused multiple times, in short jumps. The second player uses the arrow keys to move left or right (or the number pad keys 4 & 6) and the up and down arrow keys (or the number pad keys 8 & 2) to change the angle of the barrel. To fire your weapon use the enter key, to fly using the jet-pack use the left mouse button and to change the ammo use the right mouse button. Located in the top left and right corners of the screen are your ammo indicators for both combatants (when in two player mode). These indicators show the ammo type your Ant or Wasp are using. There are two types of ammo, single rockets and multiple rockets that split up as they get nearer the target and blanket the area where they land. This is useful when you are firing at multiple targets that are close together. When the multiple rocket type is active the ammo indicator shows five ammo cartridges. There is a flashing indicator in the shape of a cartridge directly above your ant that when ready for firing disappears. If you try to fire while it is flashing you can't, and it may even give you a weak powered shot when ready to fire. You can check the game controls by clicking your LMB on the question mark located in the top left hand side of the screen; this shows the keys for both players. The in game music is okay in small doses and can be switch off via the main menu. There are two language options English and Russian.
'Occasionally' there did seem to be an issue with the health indicator blocking shots, but this seemed intermittent and for me, did not spoil my enjoyment of the game.
You can see a video of game play via the Steam store page HERE. Unfortunately there are no user reviews yet because the game hasn't been released on Steam yet. It is due for release August 7th 2020.

So, like WORMS?

Ant,


Yes, but not quite as good as the worms artillery game, but still worth downloading if you enjoy the genre.

OK, I don't know what game builder software that Falco uses, but I've had this same problem most every time I try one of their games (I'm using Windows 8.1). It takes a while to "load" the game. Then it starts to fill my screen with random squares that look like they represent bits of what the screen image should have been. It never resolves. Nothing can be done. No game to play.

Mark Michigan,

Hi Mark, try running the game again, then immediately check your event logs via the event viewer, which can be accessed via the Control panel. If the issue is logged it may give you some clues as to what the issue is. Sound graphical in nature,. There are a few things you can try. The simplest is to see if changing your screen resolution will sort the issue out. If that doesn't work, try updating your graphic card or chips software. you can find out what your graphic chip or card is by opening the DX Diagnostics panel by trying DXDiag into the search. Then look at the display tabs for information on which software you may need. go to the developer of the card for example NVidia and find the drivers page, here you'll need to selct the card you are using and the OS you have. Then you can download the latest drivers for your graphics. another thing to update are your Direct X and OpenGL software.

If none of the above help, check out the FAQ's thread over in the game discussion sticky section HERE, you may find something that helps?
The reason it takes so long to load is because the game also includes the Falcoware installer that contains the low level adware that is self contained within the installer and does not affect your system. As soon as you boot up the game via the games shortcut, which goes through the installer, an advert for a game will be shown while the actual game slowly loads. When you close th3 game down, the installer opens your browser to Falcoware's home page, where they earn more advertising income. This is added so that Falcoware can pay the owner of the games license money from the advertising revenue for allowing them to give the game away for free. If we didn't get these adverts, we wouldn't see so many free games. All of the games found on Falcoware's site as well as MyPlayCity, TooMky Games, FreeGamePick, Gametop and others are commercial games that aare usually sold via other games sites such as Big Fish, Alawar, Steam, Gamehouse, Gamersgate, Game fools and others.

The one thing that does slightly annoy me about some of the authors of these giveaways, is that they give the wrong impression of the download size. In this case they imply it will involve 19.6 MB. But, after downloading that, the installation then goes on to download an additional 105 MB. So I'm now using over 6 times the space I had anticipated for this little game.

BTW, once again, God bless you Whiterabbit-uk, for you're outstanding and useful reviews.

Mark Michigan,

Someone correct me if I'm wrong. I believe that any software that requires installation will always take up much more space than the installer package that was downloaded.

Reynaldo, hi .
I think that you misunderstood Mark Michigan .
It's been a few weeks now , that Falco changed the "delivery"
method of their games under Game Giveaway of the Day .
As long as I remember , whenever I was downloading a game from Falco ,
I was getting a zip file containing a "setup.exe" file of various size .
After decompressing the zip file , I had to double click the "setup.exe" file ,
in order to install the game .
After the change , I download a zip file that is 10,00 Mb or 19.60 MB , like
today .
After decompressing the zip file , I get a "setup.exe" file , BUT , when I
double click that "setup.exe" file , I DO NOT see the start of the game
installation .
I see the start of a new download of a file VERY MUCH BIGGER from the
previous file I've downloaded (10,00 Mb or 19.60 MB) .
For example , today I saw in the description box of the game , that the file
was 19.60 MB , BUT , actually , I had to download an extra 50,14 Mb , in
order to install the game .
In other cases I had to download hundreds of extra Megabytes .
So ... I am pretty annoyed , as Mark Michigan is .

Actually , the extra Mb's for today's game (Ant Force) were 104,28 Mb .
50,14 Mb are the extra Mb's for the game Parking Attendant , given away
2 days after Ant Force .
Sorry for the mistake .
