Ant Problem lets you bring your ant colony with you everywhere to invade any flat surface in the world! You can now greet people with: "We've got an Ant Problem!"

When you open the app, simply follow the directions on the Magic Caution Sticker to stick your ants to a flat floor or wall or piece of paper with scribbles and other random markings all over it. You'll notice a sci fi grid glow and disappear to indicate that we now have a walkable surface for the ants to walk on.

Ants are generated from each of four home colonies on the corners. Summon ants by pressing away from the walkable surface.

Control the ant navigation with food. Place the infinitely-free-red-dot ant food to have the ants consider swarming it - they do run out though... and feel free to buy more interesting foods to support your virtual ants (and this indie dev).

Oh, and you can squoosh the ants to kill them. Just press HARD on the ant you're targeting, on your 3D touch device.

Science Fact: These are realistic ants with artificial intelligence (AI) modeled after desert ants (Cataglyphis fortis), which navigate using path integration (flat-surface dead reckoning with direction awareness).

Ant Problem is made by an indie developer and mad scientist named @Yosun. Yosun backwards is Nusoy - apply whimsy to natural science. Feed your AR ants! Thanks and enjoy! :)
