Units. Sounds like a real-life, real-time strategy game. Anthill certainly is not the first insect-themed take on that particular gaming genre, but Swedish developer Image & Form’s light-hearted garden romp may be one of the first times casual iOS gamers have experienced the concept. And it proves a worthwhile, colorful introduction, throwing in some familiar tower defense elements to keep you buggin’."
