Fly around the world and hover over flowers to collect nectar. Look out for enemies and bad weather! Collect as much nectar as you can before the sun sets. The faster you get nectar back to your hive the more honey you'll make! Pick up plenty of bonuses along the way - nectar, honey, time, and bee buddies. The more bee buddies you find, the more nectar you'll collect. More nectar means more honey - sweet!

To climb up the Bee Leader ranks fly through different worlds making honey - Just Desert, Country Life, City Heights, Island Time, London Fun and Climate Change. Each world has different obstacles, enemies, flowers, bonuses to break open and other fun interactive goodies. Some worlds are small, others are big, and there's a few surprises along the way.

Control your bee using your preferred method: joystick, touch or tilt. You can also remotely control Bee Leader using another iOS device via wifi or Bluetooth using Joypad, available free from the App Store. See http://getjoypad.com for more details.

Get busy!

totally agree with flightless the hornet at first was pissing me off lol but then i noticed that when you're hiding he fly off thats really neat

In my case i prefer that things stay this way instead of given you all and dont have any surprises and finding things on your own maybe the can enable a option to get an advanced tutorial or something for those who want to use it

Thanks for the great update! The trailer level is fun, and the new world is great too! Hadn't played this in a while and it is still wonderful. Such a unique game.

Thanks! There's some other changes under the hood too, including support for the latest Joypad Controller v1.7 (remote control via another iOS device) allowing us to skin the remote controller, support for another cool upcoming Joypad release, improved rotation support (retina iPad with external HDMI connection should be better) and a few other fixes.

We've got another couple of things in development so keep an eye out for more news soon.

I know it's a bit slow but so many games are still going on sale so I wasn't sure.. No sale then? I have bought so many games in the last month that went on sale or free in the past week, so I'm being cautious.
I'm happy to pay full price if there's no sale coming though. I should have gotten it earlier, but I just played the lite and fell in love so.. Soon I shall be a buzzing bee ^_^

We just released Bee Leader Free this week so we don't have any plans to make the paid version free right now... Keep an eye out for some Joypad news very soon.

Thanks for playing the free version, too How did you hear about it? Let us know what you think (Facebook, Twitter or Flightless) and please tell your friends about it and leave a rating on the App Store if you can!

cheers,
