Quote:
You're guiding bumblebees through an ever expanding tree of colorful flowers. You have to bend and stretch the branches of the tree to make the bees visit the right flowers. It's like The Sims but with bees instead of people.

Keep in mind that things get pretty busy after a while. The bees get more aggressive, more bees join in, the plant grows in multiple directions, the flowers start swaying in the wind. You just can't describe the meditative trance you feel when getting busy on the hardest level.
full version: $0.99 http://itunes.apple.com/WebObjects/MZStore.woa/wa/viewSoftware?id=309022183&mt=8

lite: Free http://itunes.apple.com/WebObjects/MZStore.woa/wa/viewSoftware?id=310723513&mt=8

The game involves a bee that is cross pollinating flowers. If the bee moves between two flowers of the same color, the flowers breed, but if the bee moves between two flowers of different color, the flower dies. Your only way to influence the action is touching/shaking specific flowers so the bee will avoid those.

Default Original

Very innovative gameplay and theme. You have to know the locations of your different colored flowers, even when they are off-screen. Managing your bees is sometimes compelling, sometimes challenging. It gets pretty hectic when you get several bees pollinating flowers simultaneously.The physics for the springiness and constraints of the flower itself are convincing. It can be somewhat of a control issue that touching and dragging is the interface for the two separate operations in the game; grabbing/shaking flowers and panning the screen. Not a deal-breaker, though. If you are the type of person, as I am, that appreciates indie games, you may like this title or want to support the developers of said titles.
