    You can find gameplay Screenshots on our official website and on Google Play.

    Albert Einstein once said: "If the bee disappears from the surface of the earth, man would have no more than four years to live". Nowadays science gone so far, we can help bees on their difficult life, indirectly helping whole humanity. Bees are human best friends in insect world - they can pollinate plants and produce honey, however they become weaker because of growing human industry. As a scientist working at Cybernetics Science Laboratories you were assigned to research on the bee - YOUR BEE. You have many modules at your disposal that can be installed on your research object, such as: rockets, helicopter rotors, firearms etc., but you can't use it until the bee is not skilled enough. Every module you unlock during gameplay has its own, specific behavior. Find the best combination for a level to achieve the GOLD CELL.

    There are several worlds - the further your bee goes, the more difficult it becomes:
    1. Spring Sprint - make it as fast as you can!
    2. Flower Power - collect flower pollen!
    3. Hornet Horror - don't let hornets to block your way!
    4. Leaf Grief - watch for falling leaves that slow you down!

    Finishing level will be rewarded with:
    Nothing - no medal-cell award (fail), but if you fit in time (sufficient), it just unlocks next level and gets you +1 Honey-Money.
    • Bronze Cell - satisfactory. Additional reward: +5 Honey-Money.
    •• Silver Cell - good. Additional reward: +25 Honey-Money.
    ••• Gold Cell - very good. Additional reward: +100 Honey-Money.
    100% of cell-shaped medals (or unlocked levels either) in a world will unlock an assigned module you can further install on the bee. Every module can improve your gameplay but is limited to its resources (e.g. fuel) you can increase by using Honey-Money.

    Every world is cumulative which means it can contain entities (characterized below) that belong to the previous. The aim of the bee is to reach the beehive which is always located on treetop. Remember - bees are workaholics, so your score mainly depends on time (1s = 10 points). Just be effective.
    You can spot on your way:
    • Bumblebee - neutral, cute and fluffy insect that can make you slower decreasing your final score. Killing it will get you -10 points.
    • Hornet - natural bee enemy that attacks nearly spotted bees. Avoid it, because it can block you to deadlock. Killing it will get you +10 points.
    • Flower - a colorful point of life of bees. Collecting it will get you score dependant on pallet count: 5 pallets = +50 points, 10 pallets = +100 points
    • Crate - random pickups (fuel, bullets etc.) falling out of dead hornets. You can get it only by killing an enemy, but not every time because of its probability.

    Teach your bee to live in its natural environment more efficient, preventing it from disappearing from our Earth's surface! Build a cybernetic organism - the CYBER BEE!
    --------------------------------------------------
    I hope you like it and its originality!
    Anyway, we decided to make the game quite difficult, so don't be upset if you won't win any medal-cells at the beginning :p

    We'd be glad if you would post us any bugs to make the game better! We have many cool ideas, but unfortunately we have to fix it first, what is impossible without player's support. We're working on promotional video showing out gameplay of this original game :). LogCat errors + your device names would be very helpful.

    Below are 2 screenshots (+ short text information) directly gathered from the gameplay.

    Version 1.2.0 released! The game is now integrated with Facebook where you can post your score with medal-cell stats. The Graph API allows you to compare your progress with your friends'. "Do you think getting a GOLD cell is that easy?"

    Here is a new gameplay movie (game version = 1.2.0). It shows only basic features that you will see right after running it for the first time (no modules and further levels unlocked, no medal-cells awarded). The video is much longer and has better quality than our official one!

    Version 1.2.1 released! Your highscore, medal-cell award and score required for the next cell are now placed on Customization screen. The most crucial change is that it is now possible to view all modules (the locked ones are symbolized by a red padlock).
