LONDON, UK—DECEMBER 6, 2007—Hands-On Mobile™, the world's leading developer of connected games and applications, today announces the launch of BEEzzz. Developed and published in partnership with XENDEX Gmbh, BEEzzz is an addictive action puzzle game in which your bee buzzes between different coloured flowers, building ever more spectacular flower chains. Quick wits and sharp moves such as the 'slingshot technique' enable the player to quickly navigate around the bee's lush world, pollinating as they go in their race against the clock and their own scores.
"Action-puzzle titles such as BEEzzz have an incredibly broad appeal we are delighted that we are providing such an exciting, cute and playable game on mobile,” said James Kaye, Director of Marketing EMEA for Hands-On Mobile. "We are also delighted that our partnership with XENDEX has become yet another example of Hands-On Mobile working with the cream of developer talent to bring the very best mobile content to users around the world."
The aim of the game is to build up your position within the hive. Players start the game as a worker drone, but with time, highly skilled players can become the Queen of the hive. Collecting combos from different coloured flowers multiplies the player's score and restores health levels. The game's expansive features include special 'Bee Candy' that can be discovered hidden within every level, as well as new areas that are unlocked as the player progresses.
"Developing BEEzzz in partnership with Hands-On Mobile has been incredibly enjoyable for everyone at XENDEX," said Michael Haberl, CEO of XENDEX. "We are very excited that this game will be enjoyed by mobile gamers around the world through Hands-On Mobile's extensive distribution channels and we look forward to the next opportunity we have to work together."
BEEzzz's accessible controls enable all types of players to pick up and play the game, making the task of beating previous high scores a challenging and enjoyable task. In addition to the easy gameplay the unique and vibrant graphics make BEEzzz instantly recognisable, easy to play and compelling. The addictive nature of BEEzzz should see players regularly dipping back into the game's environment of the flora, fauna and for another sweet taste of nectar.
