Really, not good.
I know people at the MIT Education Arcade, and they are AMAZING. I know people at Fablevision and they are AMAZING. What happened, friends?
Directions are awful. They lack any UI clues to let you know that there are more than one screen of them, and the included pictures are incorrect.
Game mechanics are fine once you figure them out, but it is very difficult to visually distinguish between 2 of the wing shapes, which is essential to your ability to play. Combine that with being penalized for incorrect attempts, and I think I managed to finish the entire game and still have negative points.
...that aren't clear enough. I read them, re-read them & then read them again but still ended up just tapping random bees looking for a match. Many times after reading the directions again, and then tapping bees according to what the directions stated, it still wouldn't accept the match. Not much fun when you can't figure out how to play. NOT upgraded; lite version deleted.
How do you play?
The instructions are just four pictures with no words saying what you are supposed to do. If you click on the help button in the middle of a game you have to start over. Not worth the free download.
