To use just unzip and run the game there is no installer. This is something that I worked on during the development of Amazing Ants it is a Lan Version...
A-mazing Ants is a retro style maze game with over 250 single player mazes and 30 two player mazes . And if that is not enough a full level editor so you can build your own mazes. Also the game has a great retro feel with an awesome soundtrack
The object of the game is to move your ant to the finish line but standing in the way are the enemy ants. You can attack the ants with your player ant but your odds of killing the ant are at best 50/50.
When you do kill an ant though you are awarded a life but when you die you lose a life so it balances out.
You can also build tunnel blocks to either (A)block the path of the enemy ants (B)Protect your newly activated allied launcher and (C) help steer your ants in the right direction.
There are some powerups available to give your player ant a boost these are located on the mazes or awarded if you kill a large ant.
Over the summer I will be using any free time to complete moving A-mazing Ants over from Game Maker 8 to Game Maker Studio. The move will allow me to port the game to other platforms. I have already ported the demo to HTML5 as the game has a browser demo at Belowzerogames.ca . As there is many differences in the two there are a lot errors from outdated features from Game Maker 8 to sort through. Recently I played the demo on my Macbook so once I can get the full version working on Mac I will be releasing those.
