My mistake was fighting in the narrow corridor and getting pushed back too soon.

Difficulty setting? 
And on the sixth day, God created ant in his own image, and gave them dominion over the earth and all of its creatures.  Amen.

I couldn't find a difficulty setting.  :o

Doh, thought this was surrounded.  My bad.

I think I hit 121,548. It was at that moment that I died :) too many things

Hold Out and Surrounded (Intense) are so difficult, lol. :)

Managed to get to Wave 34 right now.

Lol, Do you upgrade your ants? I can never get enough food to build my second army. Or do you start off building 2 at the same time? Otherwise my army dies faster than it can grow :(

It was quite hectic, and I split my army between fighting off waves and getting the underground food in the caves. I think I can do better if I could get all the food earlier.

I did not upgrade ants at all until wave 30+ when I had too much food and the ants were blocking each other. Tiger beetles are a serious pain to fight off with just black ants.

I ended up not upgrading my ants enough, having 40 lvl 1 and 19 lvl 3, leading to me being incapable of winning fast enough to harvest corpses before the next wave.  This culminated in me running out of food by wave 30, having no way to open further underground areas.

The tiger beetles were no match for my 90 ant champions, but wave 35 or so brought 8 adult coach horses which beat me down. Ended up running out of food.

- I split my force into 35 and 35.
- half were full time defenders. Other were food collectors and food chamber attackers
- Upgraded the defenders to lvl 3 as I could afford.
- Once things got serious (lvl 30 or so) I assigned all solders to defend, but only allowed half to gather food from corpses.
- Extending food area closer to enemy spawn helped.
- Had food cap of 600. I am not sure if I should have increased that.

Well done, ebrad!  :) That is seriously impressive.

Not quite as high this time, but I took a couple other screens before the end showing my assignments and layout. I had all map food harvested by lvl25.

I got 364,184 wave 53. Not sure how much further you can go due to limited food and shorter time between waves.

Very well played.  That's one heck of a highscore.
