A fun, educational walking game for any human that depends upon bees (that’s you!)
Navigate your way around Bath City Farm to help the Queen Bee as she stocks up the hive with pollen for the winter. Follow the Waggle Dance signs, dodge the endless threats to your life and get back to base with your pockets stuffed with treasure.
