The Ant Colony is the eighth level (slot seven) of Catacomb Armageddon (1992). It is set inside the winding subterranean depths of an ant colony.


"The action in this map takes place inside a colony of gigant red fire ants. Just like one would expect, there are many tunnels, egg chambers, etc. There's also another new enemy there: The "Wretched Pox", some green mutated-looking green thing that has a rather strange death animation."

Items Present[edit]


  • A typical real life ant colony consists of one or more egg-laying queens, a large number of sterile females (workers, soldiers) and, seasonally, a large number of winged sexual males and females. In order to establish new colonies, ants undertake nuptial flights that occur at species-characteristic times of the day. Swarms of the winged sexuals (known as alates) depart the nest in search of other nests. The males die shortly thereafter, along with most of the females. A small percentage of the females survive to initiate new nests.
