Join the ranks of Anthill, a tactical trail defense game based on the real-world behavior of ants. The award-winning user interface enables you to draw pheromone trails to direct your troops, moving streams of ants rather than individuals.

Engage in the mission to protect your hill as wave upon wave of enemy bugs are thrown at you. Don't wait, join the colony today!

Take down a bug with your soldiers, then direct your workers to bring back the carcass for dinner - yum!

Simply tap the screen to send out bomber ants to take out those pesky ladybugs. Satisfaction guaranteed!

Buy permanent upgrades for your troops! Turn your bombers into carpet bombers, inspire courage in your workers, and make your soldiers more brutal. Boo-ya!

Buy once, use for both your iPad and iPhone! We don't charge double for the same game.

Customer Reviews

Anthill is Awesome!

This game will provide hours of fun. It starts off by allowing to learn how to play with a few easy maps. Then gets more challenging as you advance through the game. It's definitely my favorite app on my phone. I recommend anyone who likes strategy games to get this game. The game is definitely worth $.99! I've had this game for more than a year, and I still play it all the time! Buy this game!!!!

Great game

So glad this wasn't forgotten and left to die with the next iOS update.

However, this update has introduced a serious playability issue on my iPhone 7 Plus. Whenever I create a path, it's very hard to actually select the type of ant for it. Deleting paths is the same - it keeps thinking I've missed the "x"! I can try to delete the same path 4 or 5 times before I get it right. Unfortunately, this has left a great game almost unplayable. Please fix it soon!

Fantastic game! Please add levels!!!

I purchased this game a few years ago, and I have yet to find another game I find nearly as enjoyable. My only complaint: they haven't added any levels in years! I'd happily pay for a sequel or more levels.
Please give this awesome game some more attention!
