Bee Patrol for iOS Updated, Introduces Violent Volcano as the Hottest Spot for Bees to Pollinate

For Immediate Release

Montgomery, NJ -- December 15, 2010 -- IslandJohn announces a new update for its line-drawing flight-strategy game, Bee Patrol, for iPhone, iPod touch, and iPad, introducing Violent Volcano, a new map for players to explore with their swarm. In this update, multi-touch is enabled for players to control multiple flight paths of their bee swarm to maximize efficiency.

In Bee Patrol, players draw individual flight paths for a swarm of Mother Nature’s hardest workers, ensuring the survival of the bee colony. Bees play an integral role in the ecosystem of flowering plants and are responsible for the continuity of the natural pollination cycle. Players must cross-pollinate flowers while collecting nectar for the hive in order to maintain the vitality of the flowers. As players progress and encounter new creatures and gameplay mechanics, they can see what it’s like to live a day in the life of the little striped stingers!

The latest update of Bee Patrol introduces new flower 'bundles', with multiple flowers densely-packed together or individually rotating, presenting an interesting new challenge for dutiful worker bees trying to get their pollen. In addition, the Queen mode now has the same score progression properties as in Worker mode, allowing players to score higher and faster than ever before!
