Ants (The)

Description
You play Hatman the Ant. Will you help him on his mildly anti-authoritarian quest? This is an extremely brief and rather shoddy demo to see what people think needs the most work. You *won't* get a real taste of what the story is about. Oh yeah, no fighting, dying or losing. Sorry.

Awesome, is me. 
This demo was indeed too short. Even for a demo! It was only about five minutes long.

Introduction: Well, you start off as having to explore a cave and mark danger, food and water.
For some reason, the only pheromone used in this 5 minute demo, is the danger pheromone, which is used 3 times.

Story: 6.5/10 The story was, well, average. A male worker ant named Hatman has to explore an abandonned tunnel. Love ensues. The reason this got a 6.5 is because it was highly predictable.

Gameplay: 6.5/10 The Gameplay isn't much. Moving around and picking up stuff and marking danger. No fighting, or anything. So if you're into action and random violence, this won't satisfy you.

Style: 7/10 The style of the game was pretty good. I liked marking down pheromones, but there werene't enough of them. The reason i gace this a 7 instead of an 8 is because There was no humor at all. In the full version, if you ever make one, please incorporate humor because it is wat Dink Smallwood d-mods are known for.

Graphics: 8/10 All the graphics are new! Almost. They aren't amazing, though. The places that have the original graphics have mixed up graphics. For example, the danger pheromone is a fireball rotating quickly.

Music: 7.5/10 New music that fits well. Hard to notice and tell apart from orginal however. At times I find it didn't fit that well, but I didn't listen to all of the songs because the game only lasted 5 minutes.

Pros:
New and interesting style.
New music
New graphics

Cons:
Way too short
Graphics slighty unappealing

Overall: 7.2
