Save the bee’s friends! In Dizzy Bee ($2.99) and Dizzy Bee 2 (also $2.99), you play Dizzy Bee, a helpful little critter who must save his fruit friends who have been frozen in ice. Tilt your iPhone or iPod touch and capture them before it’s too late!
Points are awarded for collecting flowers and creating chains of friends who all get to the goal without interference — that is, there are also enemies that can kill both Dizzy Bee and his little fruit friends. Once you pass a level, you’ll find yourself facing more and more difficulties in harder levels.
Both games are quite similar, so if you love Dizzy Bee and its varying levels, you’ll love Dizzy Bee 2. There’s also a free version that you can try.
I found the game incredibly enjoyable. The concept of Dizzy Bee is great, and unlike other games, the added element of having a flying insect made it a lot more challenging. You can’t always easily guide Dizzy Bee to the goal — he’s not always super fast. Sometimes, getting struck by an enemy will seem to be unavoidable. It’s your job to master your Dizzy Bee and hope that he gets out of there safely.Follow @macgasm
