Necta Collecta is a brand new color matching puzzle game which invites to embark on an exciting journey with the cute bee.
Try to collect all nectar from one type of flower. Be careful - you only have a limited amount of turns per round and the time is running out. In higher levels you even get chased by evil hornets. Luckily, you meet 3 companions throughout your journey. Each of the 4 characters has its unique movement pattern.

Be part of a captivating adventure with the bee, the maybug, the stagbeetle, and the butterfly.

A puzzle game which is easy to learn, but hard to master. It offers a rich and rewarding experience for yet-to-be gamers, casual gamers, and determined gamers.
