The Ant Attack wiki last edited by Chemystery on 11/26/13 09:11AM View full history

Overview

A ZX Spectrum and Commodore 64 game that had players trying to rescue their partner from a city swarming with giant ants.The city is presented in an isometric view with buildings being made out of blocks stacked upon one another. Players had 20 grenades to defend themselves with; players had to climb up to their partner when they found which building they were on and then flee the city safely.

History

The creator of the game Sandy White, believed he invented the isometric view but he had not seen the earlier game Zaxxon. Ant Attack is also regarded as the first "non sexist" game as you were able to play as a male or female character.
