    An excellent and creative adaptation of the real-time strategy genre, with a great presentation and simple to learn mechanics.

    Everybody can enjoy it, while strategy fans can still get their fix.

    Anthill is a mix between tactical games and tower defense, is simple but fun, and a must buy for all fans who aren't afraid of insects!

    Anthill is an original and clever take on the RTS genre that is more defense than offense based. A great play for those looking for some strategy gaming.

    A creative, entertaining, and nice looking game which requires strategic decision making, but still has an arcade feel to it. It's almost like playing an insect-based tower defense game, where the tower is your anthill, so it's appropriate that the title includes the words "Trail Defense".

    Anthill: Tactical Trail Defense provides strategic challenges through a variety of different levels. Looking past minor problems in the difficulty -- the levels don't provide as much of a challenge as they probably could -- it's impressive how addictive this game can become. The additional Infinity mode pushes the limits of challenge, and it's here where this game shines.

    A well-built and novel take on the tower defence genre, Anthill: Tactical Trail Defence doesn't quite fulfil its promise, but it's still worthy of your attention.
