Ant Farm Survival – A small new life in a small new home, or is it really small?
Ant Farm Survival is a map where you found a little ant farm at your doorstep, you fall asleep and the next thing you know, you are the new ant inside your new present! Your objective is to do what an ant would in it’s own little civilization. As you try to find your way out of the ant farm, you must gather all the necessary items for your survival and your escape. The terrain is great and it provides everything needed to create a proper living environment such as a farm from which you can plant and harvest, ores that are randomly placed around the map, and the sunlight you need everyday. The ant farm provides almost everything that you would get on the outside, except harder to find with your current state. The map provides you all the required tools to travel from the overworld to the nether in order to get extra items you want, but don’t think you can escape that easily through the nether. With these two worlds, you will travel back and forth, gathering the needed tools for your escape from that wretched ant farm.
Aside from the functionality and gameplay, the architectural looks of your surroundings is absolutely amazing. The creator captivated such a smooth and perfect look of the players home which shelters the ant farm. It shows everything that was there before you were shrunk, giving it such a believable element to your story and gameplay all the while keeping it at a minimum. Together, the map is well worth it for the overall challenge of surviving or the appearance of the surroundings.
