The Queen Ant wants to exterminate your kind because you are half ant, half lion. As a result, she finds it entertaining to watch your kind struggle to survive in her arena of chaos against 8 waves of powerful enemies. Worker Ants are the Queen's weakest defenders. They may walk slowly, but their hammers are powerful smashing weapons at close range. Fire Ants are literally running around in random directions scared out of their minds because, well, the Queen has lit them on fire for her own enjoyment! They have no weapon, but if they run into you, they will disintegrate into a pillar of flame, causing damage to you in the process. The only way to prevent taking damage from a Fire Ant is to purchase the Cloak of Flames, which will shield you in a protective dome of fire. Ghost Ants come in two forms: ethereal (gray) and undead (blue). While in ethereal form, they cannot damage you or be damaged by you. While in undead form, they are vulnerable to damage from all weapon types and will seek to destroy you with their scythe. They will randomly switch between ethereal and undead forms at any given moment. Purchasing the Book of the Dead will allow you to kill Ghost Ants in both ethereal and undead forms. Mummy Ants are extremely slow moving, zombie-like ants but if you get close enough to them, they will attack you with a flying kick! They can be deadly in large numbers and 1 of them is actually a Pharaoh Ant in disguise! The Pharaoh Ant is no joke and will spawn randomly during the Mummy Ants wave. He casts a magical pillar blast from his scepter and takes 10 hits to kill. He always drops a chest. Electric Ants are full of energy and will not hesitate to throw lightning bolts at you from a distance. The only way to prevent taking damage is to jump over the bolts or purchase the Ring of Lightning, which will shield you in a protective dome of electricity. The Queen has imported these rare and highly intelligent creatures from the farthest corners of the earth. Fast and powerful, the adult female Dinosaur Ant is constantly laying eggs and will defend her offspring at all costs. She takes 15 hits to kill and you'll have to fight her ankle biting babies at the same time! Army Ants are the Queen's personal body guards. Their magical shields will deflect arrows back at you. The only way to defeat them is with bombs. Lots of bombs. That's it. You've done it. You've really upset the Queen. Now she's going to get up off her throne and personally destroy you. Unfortunately, you'll have to fight her while simultaneously fighting enemies from the previous 7 waves. If you can defeat her, you'll truly be a god among ants.
