You are doing the Lord's work there, Sanuku, please keep it up!

I learned a cool tactic not seen in the video there. That trick being that you can queue up the next move with your bees once they're busy loading or unloading the pollen. While this will allow a little more fire and forget maneuvering of your bees, it might just mean you've set a course right into the maw of a newly sprung up venus fly trap!

I like it but the video there shows you exactly what to expect from the full game. Draw lines to have your bees land on flowers, collect pollen, and then empty it off back at the hive before they do it again. You have a limited amount of time to do this pollen gathering and bumping into another bee or venus fly trap will cause you to lose your current pollen and be stunned for a few moments. Also the flowers are constantly opening and closing as well as only allowing one bee on them at a time when they are open. Each level presents you with a different number of bees, hives, and hazards to deal with. Once the time for the level is up you'll be granted 0-3 stars based on your performance and as long as you earn at least one star the next level will be unlocked. Some later hazards to the game are tornadoes, storms, and maybe some other twists (I'm not entirely sure).

The Survival mode is unlocked from the beginning but the game throws you an interesting hook back to the main Campaign mode here. In the Survival mode you will be encountering a mix of everything the game can throw at you pretty much right off the bat. You're only able to use the latest bees you've unlocked in the Campaign mode. If you want to survive for more than a few seconds you'd best have access to some of the game's later bees. I know there are 5 different ones and I have only seen the first second tier so far. The first guys are pretty generic with the second tier guys called Speeders as they flew and gathered pollen much quicker.
