Award-Winning Ant Raid Now Available on Windows Store

The new Windows Store found in Windows 8 has been made to be the boogeyman by folks such as Gabe Newell from Valve. But I think it’s pretty much par of the course these days, for OS developers to have a store front within the operating system itself, everyone has one and business is GOOOOOD.

Just ask the guys from Prank Ltd, who have brought their hit iOS title, Ant Raid, to Microsoft’s latest operating system. The game is now available on Windows Store for $3.49, and runs on all Windows 8 enabled tablets and computers.

“We at Prank are excited to take part in the Windows 8 launch with Ant Raid. Among many other improvements for this new version, we made the game work as smoothly with mouse controls as it does with touch controls” says Seppo Santapukki, Creative Director of Prank. “Also the way SmartBombs – the difficulty aiding power-up items – are gotten and used was completely revamped”, Mr Santapukki continues.

Ant Raid is a lightweight real-time-strategy game toying around a cheerful horror theme. Players help a vibrant colony of ants survive swarms of fellow insects, mutated into mindless monsters by the toxic fumes of insecticide. The Windows 8 version contains 100 playable levels, 4 endless modes, 300 collectible stars, 24 enemy types and a complete localization support for 8 languages.

Ever since its original release on iPad, Ant Raid has enjoyed wild critical success, and is listed as the all-time 2nd highest scoring iOS strategy game in Metacritic with a review score average of 90 out of 100. Screenshots, videos and further information of Ant Raid can be found from the game’s official website at
