Ant Hill

This looks interesting, kind of like Pocket God but with ants: don't know if it's posted so here...

(Sorry about the link)

Description:

Have you ever wanted to be the ruler of your own domain, exercising mercy, stewardship or wrath as you see fit? Ant Hill puts you in control of a vast colony of ants where you control everything from whether or not to feed them, burn them, crush them, race them or shake the very earth upon which they tread. Finally, there is an environment application that lets you wield true power. What kind of ruler will you be?

Features:
- Realistic environment where ants can sprawl out in open areas, or take cover under shady plant life.
- Interactive in-game menu makes it easy to control the environment in real time.
- Many interactive options to feed, magnify, draw a marching path, drop rocks, race the ants against each other…and more!
- Accelerometer support allows you to tilt your device to control objects in the environment.
- Realistic sound effects.
- Ant-o-Meter lets you manually adjust the amount of ants in your colony.
- Pit red ants against black ants and watch them battle for dominance!

Tofft

Great idea, great graphics, little to no gameplay.

You control the total number of ants. You can fry them with a magnifying glass, drop rocks on them, move their ant hill, feed them with strawberries, create a path for them to follow, and have the red ants race the black ants. All that stuff sounds kewl on paper, but in practice, it's not really very entertaining. At the very least, it's not a game.

Of course, I'm a hater on Pocket God too, so maybe someone that likes that app should TOFFT too, because I think Ow My Balls! is way better than this...

Does look interesting but I am holding out on this (and of course, I'm a Pocket God lover)... the site said that there will be frequent updates so I'm waiting on this and see how far they will go. It has some good reviews so far...

If you mean that you want to know how to link so that it opens on the Apps page in the iTunes store, then locate the app in iTunes. Right click on the apps icon and select "Copy iTunes Store URL" then paste it into your post.
