Graphics & Sound:

Clean, polished, and colorful, these three words are a good summary of the graphics in Beezzle. Not highly detailed or realistic, the colorful Sesame Street-esque graphics are likely to make your day brighter, whether you’re any good at the game or not. Similar things can be said for the audio. There is only a handful of musical tracks, each has bright and bouncy as the next. The sound effects mostly consist of friendly noises and chimes. This is a game for kids and not for the dark, brooding type.


Beezzle is fundamentally a color matching game. Unless you’ve been living in a shack deep in the woods, chances are good you’re familiar with this style of gameplay. Move around some colored orbs until you match 3 or more in a line. Bonus points for matching multiple lines and for combos.

Several modes of play are provided: action, puzzle and fill. Each offers many levels of play. In Action mode, you are running on a time limit. You must continue to match colored bits of nectar until you fill up your gauge. When filled, a bit of colored honeycomb is placed on the playing grid. You must then remove the honeycomb by using it in a colored line. Remove the specified number of honeycombs to clear the level.

In Puzzle mode, you must guide a colored bee pupa to a specific place on the playing grid. Only moves that result in a match of 3 or more are accepted and you only have a limited number of moves.

In Fill mode, you must fill every hexagonal location on the playing grid with honey. Whenever a color match is made, every spot involved in the match is filled with honey. You must fill the grid before time runs out.


While there is no selectable difficulty setting in Beezzle, the early levels in each mode are pretty easy and anyone should be able to handle them. After that, things get progressively more difficult and anyone should be able to find a spot that both challenges and rewards them.

Game Mechanics:

The game’s interface is extremely simple and is just point and click. Click on the colored piece of nectar you want to move, then click the adjacent spot you want to move it to. The game keeps track of all of your high scores and you can even earn medals for excellent performance. Alawar's website offers a free download if you'd like to check it out for yourself.

If you’re a fan of puzzle games, Beezzle may be worth a look.
