Haha, awesome. That must be what the developer was hinting at in the thread when someone recommended a hornet mode, and they were like "Interesting".

Damn awesome, and awesome that it's only Free

Freakin' genius idea on the devs' part. Hornet tackling is one of the best parts of the game.

Hornet Smash is an entirely new game mode that is not in the main game. Here's a quick rundown of how it plays:

- Hornets come in waves and build nests. You must tackle them.
- If the nest gets too big, it explodes, releasing angry hornets.
- Angry hornets will sting you, but if you dodge their sting, you can strike back.
- Or you can smash the nests ahead of time to release the angry hornets in more manageable numbers.
- Lazy Hornets are worth 1 point, Angry Hornets are worth 2 points.
- Smashing an entire wave of Lazy Hornets is worth 5 points.
- The intensity increases as time goes on, the hornets come fast and furious, and you try to stay alive and get as high of a score as possible.
- Trap lacewings by building webs and eat them for health.

We have separate leaderboards for each of the 3 levels -- Pantry, Garden, and Attic. I'm currently at the top spot in each, can you take me down?

Woa! Almost didn't download this one... I just thought it was a lite trying to be fancy with the name. You guys should call it something other than FREE on the title bar. Maybe I was the only one, but that's usually connected to a lite... just call it "Spider: Hornet Smash", if it's a chapter not in the full game, with just a link to either upgrade or buy the full, it perfectly fine to name it just "Spider: Hornet Smash".
