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!

Sweet, thanks for letting us know - please feel free to tell a million friends

Also, if you've got another iOS device grab the latest Joypad v1.7 (free!) and play Bee Leader or Bee Leader Free remotely... we're lucky enough to be using their new sdk to do some cool stuff.

Nice, having your own images, and being able to navigate through the menus is great. =oD

It's gonna take a little bit of messing around with to get comfortable with it, constantly looking down to make sure I'm touching the joystick. I tried the joystick anywhere controls, but it locked the stick in the middle of my iPod. I'm not sure if you can work it out so that you can touch anywhere on your iPod, and that's where the joystick will appear (dunno if Joypad lets you do things like that) - but it's great seeing it all customized to Bee Leader. =o)

The Joypad joystick doesn't quite work like our internal 'joystick anywhere' - moving it around didn't quite have the same feel. The new sdk allows us to customise the sensitivity (it now allows more movement) and a few other things which makes it a lot better. We'll continue to tweak it based on feedback and perhaps try the auto-centering joystick again (seeing as the other left/right ones are fixed). Thanks for your feedback!

Also, the remote tilt controls are pretty sweet when your iPhone/iPad is connected to a big tv.

Anyone who doesn't have this should pick it up! It's a great casual arcade game that can get pretty difficult+challenging if you decide to go for oh scores. I still play it on a fairly regular basis even though I know I'll never catch up to any of those insanely high scores,it's still great fun playing for scores and trying to best yourself. Highly recommended. =oD
