App Store Favorite ‘Anthill’ Gets Massive Update
GOTHENBURG, Sweden, October 26, 2012 /PRNewswire/ — ‘Anthill’, the sensational real-time strategy game from Swedish indie Image & Form that took the App Store by storm in October 2011, is set for a huge content update on November 1. This marks the first anniversary for a game loved by gamers and non-gamers alike.
Immediately selected by Apple as iPad Game of the Week when released, ‘Anthill’ has remained a favorite among millions of bug-crazed iOS gamers. In a market where unanimous love for a game is rare, tens of thousands of user reviews for ‘Anthill’ have been consistent: the average is an unbeatable 5 out of 5.
“We always knew ‘Anthill’ would be a great game, but the response has exceeded our hopes and expectations,” says Brjann Sigurgeirsson, CEO of Image & Form. “Every day we read new reviews from people saying it’s the best game on the App Store. In rare cases we get a 4 instead of a 5 – simply because they want more. So we want to give them more to dig into… I guess we’ve grown addicted to top marks.”
The ‘Anthill’ objective is deceptively simple: use streams of different ants to defend the hill against multitudes of beautiful, terrible insects over a large number of levels. The gameplay is ever-changing and surprisingly deep, which could explain the game’s longevity and high replay value.
“We want to make games that last, that really give people their money’s worth. Thanks to its variety, generous content and depth, ‘Anthill’ never gets short or old,” notes Sigurgeirsson. “It’s fun, mesmerizing, beautiful, and a true iOS milestone. Millions love it already, and we want millions more to help defend the hill.”
Featuring new levels, new strange insects, new ant skills and many days of gameplay, the new version of Anthill will be released on November 1.
