HiveSweeper is a free-for-all puzzle game about taking over a bee hive - a unique blend of relaxing classic gameplay and frantic multiplayer competition!
Compete against up to 5 other bees to claim the largest territory in the hive, but watch out for deadly traps. If you make a mistake or run out of tiles, you're out - and the other bees really want you out!
Do you have what it takes to rise to the top and be the baddest bee in the hive?
Mouse Movement - Use the mouse to move your bee around.
Left Mouse Button - Left click to claim "safe" tiles
Right Mouse Button - Right click to claim "trap" tiles.
Click & Drag - Click the left mouse button and drag to pan the camera around the hive.
How to Play HiveSweeper
Click on a highlighted tile next to your territory to claim it. You can only claim tiles that are touching territory you already own. You can pan the camera around by clicking and dragging anywhere on the screen to get a better view of your surroundings. The number on any given tile will clue you in on how many traps are touching that tile. If there are no numbers, that means every tile touching that one is safe. If you suspect a tile to have a trap, you can right click on it to flag it, but don't make a mistake! Left-clicking a trap or incorrectly flagging a safe tile will lose you the game. You can eliminate other players by claiming all of their tiles, or by tricking them into activating your traps. If you want to see how well you're doing, the scoreboard in the top right will show your progress and that of others.
Having trouble coming up with a username, or too lazy to reach for your keyboard? You can leave it blank to be assigned a random "guest" name!
If you get into a frantic clicking battle with another bee, try to lure them into accidentally clicking on a trap!
Quickly claim the tiles of a new territory to eliminate potential threats!
The more you play, the more you'll get a feel for identifying the traps in the different tile arrangements, so if you're having trouble at first, don't worry!
But most importantly, have fun and grow your hive!
