Ants Adventure is a casual idle game that focuses on the creation, growth and management of ant colonies. A blue ant king has grown tired of trying to make life work out on Earth. He decides to colonize Mars. The player's mission is to help him build a rocket, travel to Mars, and then use local resources to create a colony, make it prosper and defend against attacks.
The player mines blue crystals to hire ant assistants to perform the mining of more crystals and other various tasks. The player can also use blue crystals to expand areas of the colony and create special green crystals using a conveyor-belt machine. The player can use green crystals to power up the ant.
The game also features red crystals created via mining efforts and tearing apart an older air-based vehicle. Red crystals update special areas. For example, the player can use them to build a new rocket and feed a monster different types of food.
Ants Adventure allows the player to earn bonuses by watching advertisements. For example, they can speed up their work with a multiplier when they watch an ad.
