SimAnt under Virtual PC

This is one of my favorite not-so-well-known computer games.  Released in 1991, designed by Will Wright (the maker of SimCity) it is a quite whacky game.  You lead an Ant colony and attempt to:

  • Build your nest
  • Secure a food supply
  • Defeat –
    • Spiders
    • Caterpillars
    • An opposing group of ants

With an ultimate goal of forcing the local human residents to evacuate.

As a concept it sounds odd, but the game is well constructed and quite addictive.  Plus it runs perfectly under Virtual PC.
