Funky Bee
Never heard of this game before, but I am a sucker for any game with the word "funky" in it, so I downloaded and played the game.  I did not know what to expect from the game, but I was surprised to find it was essentially a Xevious game, but you are a bee instead of a space ship.  

The goal of the game is to fly around the forest and collect honey by running over flowers.  As you zip along, lots of bad insects come to try and kill you.  You can dodge them or just shoot them with what I guess is a modified stinger.  If you make it all the way through the level, you go to the hive and dump off all your honey.  That is essentially the game.  

(Did someone say honeycombs?)

Funky Bee is another game that has a rarity in video games, deadly plants.  Like Space Harrier, if you hit a tree, you die.  So you not only have to watch out for the deadly insects and collect honey, but you need to watch out for trees which will splat you.  Sorry, but you cannot shoot down the trees, you are just a bee after all.  

The graphics are bright and quite primitive.  While you can tell what everything is, they are a bit on the bland side.  The music isn't much better.  This pretty much sums up the game, pretty bland and forgettable.  Guess there is a reason I never heard of the game before.

This is just a review of the arcade machine.  If you are looking for the actual arcade machine, you may want to check out ebay.  Click below to see if you can find this game.
