SimAnt: The Electronic Ant Colony was a life simulation video game by Maxis released in 1991 and designed by Will Wright. In 1992, it was named "Best Simulation Game" at the Software Publishers Association's Codie awards.
The game is a simulation of an ant colony inspired by E. O. Wilson's study of ant colonies and has three modes: a Quick Game, a Full Game, and an Experimental Game. It was released for the IBM PC, Amiga, Apple Macintosh, and Super NES.
The player plays the role of an ant in a colony of black ants which battle against enemy red ants in the back yard of a suburban home. The objective is to spread through the garden, into the house, and finally to drive out the red ants and humans.
