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 for more details.

I didn't notice this before, but the polish-ness goes beyond what I thought on the beginning... windmill blew actual wind and suck you in from the front and repulses you on the back if you get close enough, clouds are always on the move, and sometimes they follow you or makes to risky going to that desired nectar, so much polish that makes this world come alive!

Also, how do I get rid of wasps? Is there any way to kill them? I usually trap them beneath the ground on a structure, but there should be an easier way.... if I try the wasp to get electrocuted by the thunder cloud, nothing happens. Anyone figured out a solution yet?
