A Classic

William Perman "Star Wars 4 Life", Amazon
21 February 2015
  • Summary: Easy to pick-up n play as far as complexity is concerned, but it takes a lot of time to "win". First you're required to build your colony, find food, deal with predators and random mayhem (like the human mowing the lawn). Once you're well established you begin to spread your colony to other areas of the yard. Here, you need to switch between colonies as any colony unattended runs the risk of dying off.

  • Summary: SimAnt, Ok so its for Windows XP!! That is ok, because i happen to have one! :P And the fun of dieing all over n over reminded me how advanced the game really is. I don't recall EVERYTHING like how to correctly start a good colony just yet, but my gosh i love this game. I remember i used to beat the game as a kid haha, now it's like uhhh where did i put that hole again?

Classic I remember

Amazon Customer, Amazon
30 January 2012
  • Summary: I placed this game as a kid when it first came out, and the game is as I remember, only maybe a little bit tougher. It's still educational and simple for one of Maxis' early Sim games. It's quick to pick up, with the tutorial and you can play like a kid with a magnifying glass if you want. Glad to have the game again, even if it's 20 years later!

Pretty awesome. 'Nuff said.

  • Summary: I've played everything from Earthbound to Zarklon, and everything in the early "sim" series will always rank towards the top of my list. This game (among many unknowns, but that's for another product review)provides a certainly welcome diversion from the grimy massacre seen on most systems these days. I've had enough Call of Duty. let's play some Sim Ant!

Don't buy on CD Rom

Michael H. Friedline, Amazon
3 September 2010
  • Summary: The other reviewers describe the game accurately, so I don't have to. I just want to let everyone know this cd will not play on your pc unless it's a very old Operating System like Windows 95. Compatibility Wizard will not help you here. This game is free to download from a lot of sites, but actually playing it isn't easy, I bought the cd rom, which I couldn't use at all, then had to download DOSBOX and Sim Ant in DOS format.

A new respect for the ant.

Meghan Dunlap "Meggiedonch3", Amazon
3 March 2008
  • Summary: While I happened to play the SNES version of SimAnt many years ago, I still think fondly back on it. The game is like none other. You cringe when the lawn mower is coming, you despise those mercilious red ants when they come and take your eggs away. It gave me a new respect for the noble ant (yes, I said noble) and the tribulations from it's own kind and of the huge human giants that happen to inhabit it's world.

Why wasn't it updated

JRL Smith "Les Smith", Amazon
27 November 2006
  • Summary: Most of your reviewers agree that Simant is a fantastic `game` - I don't say game, because it is an educational program that gives players an insight into ant life - their life and problems. I've been happily playing it in its original DOS mode for years - it's my favourite game. Trouble is that now I've updated my computer SimAnt won't run. It's like losing a member of the family.

  • Summary: This game is very very fun. You can live the life of ants, which I've always wanted to do! You can fight the red ants, spiders and ant lions. Collect food to keep your colony alive (especially your queen!). Play differnt game modes and explore different environments! I love this game, try it!
