Bee Leader buzzes its way into Windows and Windows Phone

Game titles from iOS and Android keep coming to Windows Phone. Here’s another one. Bee Leader is a beautifully designed game with a cool flight model & fun physics. You’re a big bee flying around the world and hovering over flowers to collect nectar. Want to play it on a bigger screen? The Windows version has also just been released.

Head past the break to watch our gameplay video.

You earn points when turning nectars into honey. Enemies and bad weather will try to get in your way. Bee Leader has already been downloaded millions of times on other platforms. Will it be a hit on Windows and Windows Phone 8?

There are different ways to control the big bee. Under the settings, you can choose joystick, touch or tilt. We find the joystick mode easiest to use, but try them all out to see which one works best for you.

The goal is to collect as much nectar as you can before the sun sets. The faster you get nectar back to your hive, the more honey you'll make. There are plenty of bonuses on each level - nectar, honey, time, and bee buddies. The more bee buddies you find, the more nectar you'll collect. More nectar means more honey.

There are 16 levels over 5 different worlds: Just Desert, Country Life, City Heights, Island Time and London Fun. Each world has different obstacles, enemies, flowers, bonuses and other interactive goodies. The great visuals and sound make this game really enjoyable.

Bee Leader is available at the Windows Phone Store for $1.49. Unfortunately, there is no free trial. This could be a good time to use that $20 store voucher if you have recently purchased a Lumia device. The Windows 8 version costs $1.99.

Is this your type of game? Let us know in the comments!
