Bull Ants is basically a two player game
although it can be played by one person.
You and your friend are ants and you have
lived happily in your nest for a long time but now the construction
workers have moved into the neighbourhood and are using explosives to
dig trenches for foundations of a new shopping centre. Another problem
are the bull ants which have moved into your nest because their home was
destroyed in the first phase of construction.
Use joysticks 1 & 2 to control the
red and green ants. You must move your five eggs from the bottom of the
nest to safety at the top of the screen. On the way up you must watch
out for cave-ins and the bull ants.
If you are hit by a cave-in, you will be
sent to the top of the screen. If you are stung by a bull ant, you will
be paralysed and will have to wait for the next explosion to shock you
out of it. In either case, if you were carrying an egg, you will lose it
and it will be represented by a black egg appearing at the top of the
screen on your side.
The winner is the one who gets the most
eggs to the top safely. If both players get the same number, the winner
will be the first to get them there.
