Bienvenido a la comunidad! :D

Excellent work, and I love the pixelart. Those bots really look and move like ants!! If you are looking for tips to enhance the simulation, I had a few ant farms when I was a kid, and I know ants mark paths leaving a chemical signal. Your ants seem to know the whole terrain as if they had a map of it, instead real ants mark the terrain with this "smell path" for other ants to follow, when they find some resource.

By the way, I see you are from latin-america like me, if you ever want to join forces to make games please let me know.
