Image Above - I found a game called Planet Ant on the app store, the queen's art style looks so similar to EOTU, it looks obviously very similar. Or is it just me? Take a look. Is this relating to it?

EotU's Formica fusca queen is stylized. Her flat head is so distinct that you can immediately recognize that this is a rip off. If anyone designed the queen from scratch, she should look similar to EotU's wood ant queen instead.

Fusca Queens have flat heads in real life, and EoTU's art style is fairly common. Stylised Realism, many ant games use it.
This is Ant Queen 3D's queen (just ignore the rest of the image, I took it from a thumbnail)

The queen also has a flat head.

If a game was copying EoTU (read: not using Stylised Realism), it would be this:

Please note, this is most likely a Trojan.
Edit: Undergrowth Empires even has the old story line, with Nomadic Ereptors.

You're right, I guess I was too quick to judge. It was just the angle of the graphics, the honeycomb-shape for digging inside the map, the popping up of enemies and food after digging in markers on the map, the putting together of groups for attacking... that set me off. However, how else would a game about ants be... my bad. :( And yes, the name really is "The Ants: Underground Kingdom".
Mostly I was just frustrated because this mobile game is plain boring and not as fun as EotU... I guess I just wanted to "warn" you so the app won't get any more downloads - because the commercial for the app is really promising.

We had that one DMCA'd from the store, it did nothing - likely crypto mining or something. Someone literally just ran a few screenshots of the demo through Photoshop to make them a bit more red.

I was joking about how many times I write EiTU instead of EoTU, the post that I made was jabbing at myself.

It is a shame that there aren't many ant games, boardgames like March of The Ants are outliers.

Hello Scyobi, if you are looking for a very good game with ants, I suggest you "les fourmis"
Most people spoke about the Werber's books but I guess they don't know that there was a PC game.
If I'm not wrong; i think you can even play as termit or wasp in freeplay :
