In Lead the Ant, you should help this hard-working critter to reach the sweet candies. The life of an ant is not an easy one, so we believe this one would appreciate a helping hand from you. Can you guide it through the obstacles and lead it to the prize on each level?

Ants are responsible for providing for their colony, but this one seems lost and in need of assistance. Your objective in this game is to draw lines to guide the ant to the candy on each level. The ant moves on its own. Draw lines on the screen to change its direction. In the top right corner of the screen, you will see your ink meter. You will use ink with each line you draw. Be sure to plan ahead or you will run out of ink before you can complete the level. The first few levels are relatively easy, as all you have to do is to guide the ant with your lines. As you progress through the game, things will get more challenging. Our ant is not the only hungry thing in this world. Watch out for predators like spiders and lizards. Lizards will try to catch your ant with their tongue, and spiders will grab your ant if you come close. Use your lines to guide your ant without getting caught by them and reach the candy unharmed. Can you complete each level on the first try?
