There are 5 modes in Ant Squisher, each with 15 different levels.
1. Child's Play
5. Totally Insane
The Child's Play mode is perfect for entertaining and pacifying young children. In this mode there are no food items for the ants to stick to. There are no spiders, and the snail can be touched any number of times without ending the game. This provides hours of "stress-less" fun for the kids.
The "Beginner" mode adds a bit more challenge to the game. You'll be introduced to spiders and food items. Your task is to squish the ants before they reach any of the food items. You lose points when they stick to the food. When you squish a spider, it becomes ant food and the ants begin to stick to it as well. You'll want to avoid touching the snail. Each time you do, the snail changes color and you lose points. If you touch the snail when it's red, the game ends.
The point value for each ant starts out low. The longer the ant lives, the more valuable it becomes. Occasionally, if an ant lives long enough, it will begin to glow yellow. This is a bonus ant and is worth DOUBLE it's highest value. If a bonus ant is not squished while it's yellow, it will eventually lose it's glow and it's value will drop back to the lowest level and the cycle will continue.
As the modes and levels increase, so do the number of ants. The speed of the ants also begin to increase, and there are more obstacles, such as shells, leafs and ant-hills to challenge you.
The Totally Insane mode. If you aren't headed there already, this mode will guide you in that direction. When you are up for a serious challenge, this is your mode.
The app also allows you to change preferences and experiment with the number of ants, speed of ants, number of spiders, etc...
