Angry? Bored? Play Ant Hill on the iPhone

Ever feel like you’re having a bad day? Want to de-stress? Ant Hill (iTunes link), a $0.99 app from Concrete Software, is here to help you get away with that task — on your iPhone or iPod Touch. The object is to kill as many ants as possible, and you can change the number of black and red ants and more. “Weapons” include magnetism, fire, strawberries (you know, to convince the ants to come out and play), minefields, and rocks (mmm, rocks). You can also get the ants to race each other set up a path (those obedient ants line up and run across the screen) and relocate your anthill if you choose.

The only problem? You’ll never get the anthill to disappear completely. The little critters don’t like going away. Call the exterminator!

Ant Hill was lots of fun for awhile. It’s one of those games that would be most exciting for kids. I’ll have to have my son try it when he’s old enough. This game has great graphics and shows a solid effort. It’s a good option for when you want to kill time and when you don’t have to think too hard about your next move. Anything goes with Ant Hill.
