Friday Fun: Swarm Control

By Akemi Iwaya on January 27th, 2012


In this week’s game you take control of aerial armies as the war between bees and bears elevates to the next (and final) level. Can you lead the bee armies to victory over their enemies and ensure that bee civilization, not bears, will dominate the land?

Swarm Control


The game gives a humorous nod to the Federal Network newscasts about the attack on Buenos Aires in the original Starship Troopers movie. We have included all the screens from the Honeycomb Network newscast here for your viewing pleasure.






There are a total of fifteen battles for you to engage in over the course of the summer.


Here is the first level. To send bees in a particular direction left click and hold down while dragging your mouse in the desired direction to attack the bears.


Take that bear!! You can also see the second bear already approaching from the left, so hurry up and defeat the first one!




Once you complete a level you will receive your bonus in the form of pollen-filled flowers (appeared and disappeared too quickly for our screenshot) and see new bee types that may have been unlocked.


After you receive your bonus and any unlocked bee goodness, you will be taken to the lab where you can purchase upgrades to enhance your defenses.


Starting with the second level you will need to click on each hive in order to activate its defense army…


There will be two bee types to choose from for each hive here. Choose the one you think best for the defense of each…


Bears!!! Good luck and have fun playing!
