Looks nice, still not sure I understand how it plays. Do you just tap the same color flowers as fast as you can, in a path?

Yes, with the bee you can move a distance of 1 or 2 fields. The difficult part is - you need to decide for a color first. Not every color is lined up perfectly. For the other characters it is even trickier. For example the butterfly can only move a distance of 2 fields and cannot go to the directly adjacent fields, so a group where the flowers are spread apart is a good choice to collect.

More gameplay videos are coming soon, and I'm thinking about making a free version...

Here's a review of NC: http://www.iphonegamespace.com/nectacollecta/

I'm currently in the process of improving the HUD for the next big patch of Necta Collecta.

As you can see, the clock at the top was replaced with a nice yellow "nectar bar" at the bottom. Let me know what you think.
The idea behind this is to make the scoring more transparent to the player, and also to give instant feedback on how the player is doing.

The second screenshot shows the new quick and smooth scrolling transitions between rounds.
