The hive is in trouble from invading insects, and it’s up to you to stop them. Fling bees at the enemies in this Missile Command-type-game. But these are no ordinary bees. They’re paper (in case you missed the game’s title). Everything takes place within a kid’s diorama, which adds to the game’s character because a cardboard look and feel exists throughout it. Aiming is key because the bee will need to return to its staging flower once you launch it. Hitting a nearby baddie means the bee can quickly return to its spot to smite the next one. Missing, however, will send the bee off the screen and you’ll need to wait a bit for him to return. The updates include small fixes for working with the new iPad and the iPhone 3GS, as well as some graphics tweaks. This is definitely a fun game that I recommend taking a look at. Or, you could enter to win our... GIVEAWAY! We have two copies of Paper Bees to give away to two lucky readers!
