Play OverviewPlay Overview

Bee Simulator (2019) is a strategy game you play as a honey bee, flying on expeditions from the beehive to collect pollen, fight wasps and perform missions ordered by the Queen, as well as participating in races and dancing rituals. Along the way, you'll learn facts about a bee's life.

Most of the time the camera follows the bee around in flight, but you can also use "bee vision" to see your surroundings. The game takes place in a semi-open environment reminiscent of Central Park in New York, and the tree where the hive is located is on the brink of being cut down by park management. Can you save your bee community by preventing this?

This game is a mixture of educational and silly fun and is suitable for the whole family due to largely non-violent gameplay. It has multiple game modes:
  • Single-player story mode
  • Exploration mode (roam free around the park)
  • Split-screen cooperative or competitive play for up to 4 players on the same system (includes additional maps, controllers required)

Content Rating

Rated PEGI 7 for Violence.
There is a fighting mini-game in which players have to fight other insects, like wasps and hornets. They simply bump into each other and flashes and stars are shown when this happens. The violence is very minor and after a fight, the enemies simply fly away.

Rated for younger players in the US. Rated ESRB EVERYONE for Mild Fantasy Violence. Players explore an open-world environment, complete mission objectives (e.g., collecting pollen, rescuing other bees, chasing objects), and engage in fights against natural enemies, such as wasps and hornets. Battles are mostly timing-based, with players following prompts on a meter. Attacks depict insects rushing at each other, causing dizzy stars to appear; defeated insects disappear amid puffs of smoke.
Rated PEGI 7 with violence and ESRB Everyone with mild fantasy violence.
