Ant Wars is out (lite anyway)

http://itunes.apple.com/WebObjects/MZStore.woa/wa/viewSoftware?id=325223559&mt=8

Looks decent I guess? Seems to be in a similar vein to Galcon? Am downloading now, so will see how it goes!

Full version released in a few days. 99c

Well just played through the first few levels, it's like galcon in that you need to take over all the enemies bases. However I don't think there will be random level generation only 51 levels. Hopefully I'll be wrong though.

Not much really, controls are different in that you can't simply drag one hill to another you have to tap and then tap a destination. There are three ant types each with different stats but that is the only gameplay variant (that and there's a whole lot less than galcon with no online multiplayer and random levels).

Very much like Galcon, just not as polished. Played the first few levels, but pretty ordinary.
