OverviewOverview

Bee Simulator is a strategy game you play as a honey bee, flying on expeditions from the beehive to collect pollen, fight wasps and perform missions ordered by the Queen, as well as participating in races and dancing rituals. Along the way you'll learn facts about a bee's life.

Most of the time the camera follows the bee around in flight, but you can also use "bee vision" to see your surroundings. The game takes place in semi-open environment reminiscent of Central Park in New York, and the tree where the hive is located is on the brink of being cut down by park management. Can you save your bee community by preventing this?

This game is a mixture of educational and silly fun, and is suitable for the whole family due to largely non-violent gameplay. It has multiple game modes:
  • Single-player story mode
  • Exploration mode (roam free around the park)
  • Split-screen cooperative or competitive play for up to 4 players on the same system (includes additional maps, controllers required)
