Hey Poor Player (Dec 09, 2016)
Ant Eater is nothing special in either the graphics or sound department. In fact, it’s pretty simple. The sprites are nothing more than plain stick-like figures with no animation, and there is also very little variation in the landscape. The sound effects add very little to the proceedings and hardly make use of the brilliant POKEY chip. But where this game succeeds is in the compelling gameplay. I really liked the way you can learn the behaviour of the anteater and master the tactics you have to employ to win. What first seems like nothing more than a rip-off of the classic Namco arcade game soon turns out to be a great little game in its own right that requires further examination. Ant Eater is an interesting and fun title that will definitely appeal to fans of other classic digging games such as Mr. Do!, Boulderdash and Dig Dug.
