    It was okay.. I think it was poorly done. Not enough interactivity. I got bored fast.

    14355 lvl 72. (could have gone longer but only had 1 peice of cake left and was bored as hell :P) At around 50 the stupid ants are soo damn hard to kill that money flow drops to almost nothing. It becomes a stalemate. The ants get harder and harder to kill, yet the lack of money means you can do nothing about it. They should up the ant money drop or something.

    i got to level 51. didnt really look at all the weapon options till the last 2 minutes. i went and looked up a few words in the dictionary that i came across in the subtitles of a chinese movie. they really pick some odd words sometimes. anyways... what was my point? oh so i had a bunch of money built up and looked at all the upgrades. most of the highest level ones suck.

    The highest level ones have their advantages. The main advantage for most of them though is that the "bullets" pass right on through one and an on to the next, or continue to hurt the ant after the initial attack, even though if you just look at the numbers they suck.


    AoE means it affects an area.
    11: Rocket launcher. (Slow, massive range, hurts).
    12: Ice. (Slows enemies).
    13: Sonic pulse. (Area of effect).
    21: Flame thrower. (Very very short range. Sets ants on fire).
    22: Laser. (Long range, never misses, hurts).
    23: Electric. (Good all round. AoE).
    31: Boomerang. (Passes through enemies).
    32: Machine Gun. (Fast rate of fire).
    33: Poison spray. (AoE. Poisons ants).

    Is it just me or did the ants learn to avoid going through my flamethrowers? It got annoying after they seeming at random avoided my flame throwers and went the other way.

    Use poison sprays instead of ice to slow the ants, they disorient the ants and they wander around randomly well enough for some fancy shots.

    I think, I`m not sure about this, that the lasers are the best way to go with this. When you have one piece of cake left, you can target any ant that picks it up. The lasers have long range, big damage, don`t miss, and fire faster than the rocket launcher.

    Maybe throw in 2 or 3 slowing towers too.

    To get to lasers: 2, 2, 2.
    To get to Ice: 1, 2, 2.

    I dont know how people get past high 50`s but there has to be some system. I was doing fine but on 57 they didn`t seem to get confused and would walk straight back to the nest with the cake.-.-

    When I was down to my last piece of pizza, which and ant picked up. I had moved to another tab in my browser, or minimized my browser, can`t recall, came back and the pizza slice was gone. Yet the game was still playing. So I let it run all night and really could have let it run for ever. But with Lasers only dealing 12 damage, it was taking a very long time. So the bug in the game has nothing to do with ants!

    Also, the max level triple cannon can do a total of 36 damage a second if all the shots hit, and it`s relatively fast. That`s the best cannon to use really. Unless someone has a better idea...I`ve calculated all the top damages, and the max triple cannon reigns supreme by 12 points.

    This is how it rolls, actually:

    12 damage per second = laser.
    36 damage per second = Triple cannon (also is cheaper)

    The chance of 2 bullets out of the 6 that get fired every second is insanely high. So even if 4 miss, then it still meets up with the laser.

    The glitch is real, happened to me by chance, (nothing to do with tabbing out).

    You have to take range into consideration when determining damage, the triple cannons deal the most damage, but if there are no ants in range it isn`t doing any damage.

    The lasers never miss, and have long range, so I think they`re the best overall. The triple cannon does work well near the hole though.

    Quite fun until the ant`s HP tops 800. Recovering 50% hp when they get the cake is just hell. Five rockets surrounding the hole and five lasers around the cake. Didn`t stop them at lvl 64 though. 11657.

    Rockets lag the game a lot too, I was probably getting .5 frames per second when I died.

    good game! 10,740 lvl 61. putting 2 lasers near the pie works well, with triple cannons near the anthill. at a certain point it becomes futile, you could shoot `em all day and they wouldn`t die.
