Richard Bayliss and Wayne Womersley present - HONEY BEE. Take control of Buzzy, a busy but clumsy bee who has been given the job of collecting pollen from 16 levels. Avoid various perils on each level including natural hazards and rampaging wildlife and try your best to make the Queen Bee proud!


Queen Bee is very annoyed at the fact that honey production is very low. Many of her worker bees are just too damn lazy. Luckily, there's one reliable busy, but clumsy bee available for the job, and that is you, Buzzy ... Queen Bee sends you out into the wild to bring back pollen so that bee farmers can produce more scrumptious honey for the villagers. In order to do this, as Buzzy, you must go to the flowers in each of the 16 screens and pick out pollen from one flower. You must then drop the pollen into the hive (from any height). One you have pollen in your possession you are unable to pick any more up until it has been dropped into the bee hive. If you drop pollen in the wrong place, or lose a life, you will have to restart the current level all over again. Avoid crashing into buildings, rocks, flower stems, flowing water (waterfalls are okay though), tree branches, the ground, lava, and of course, the natural wildlife.

Honey Bee is a game for the Commodore 64. You can play the game in a C64 emulator (we recommend VICE) or you can port the game onto real C64 hardware if you have the resources to do so. The download file features the .d64 (disk version), .tap (tape version) and .prg (c64 program files).

Sorry for the trouble regarding SDIEC compatibility with Honey Bee. The game used an IRQ fast loader system on the loading bitmap. I have now fixed this loader to give the user a choice whether or not to use the IRQ loader, or load the game without it. The new D64 has now been sent to Psytronik for uploading.


Hi, I bought the game and I ask you if there is a way to skip the infinite starting music. I have tried all the keys. Thanks.

This game does not work on the sd2iec device. Prg version is not available :-(


I'm not sure if this will help but I have found that a lot of games that don't work on an sd2iec will work if you extract the contents from the .d64 image and place them in a folder on the sd card.  You can use a program like DirMaster to do this.


Again, I haven't tried this with this game but it's worth a shot.
