The ants will go marching one by one and it is your job to help them along. In this game you get to choose what type of ant you will have, and you will dictate how much of the workforce goes toward food, military, nest building, etc. Changing the % of workforce can have a drastic impact on your ant colony so it's important that you maintain a certain balance. This balance is what will ultimately make you very good at one thing. Harvesters are good at harvesting and shouldn't focus too much on military - the same goes for military colonies. See how big you can grow you colony.
