Bee Farming for iPad is a open-ended game that allows users to create their bee farming business. Users start with a small swarm of bees, some cash, some time to gather honey and then sell it. As the business grows, they get more bees, etc to earn even more.
The app size is large (around 78 MB) and may take some time to download.
While there is nothing directly educational in the game, the game does help in learning some basics about a business, some strategic thinking, patience and of course, bees.
It is a very addictive game. Initially it takes a few plays to get the process and get going. Once the game has been understood, expect your kid to play it regularly. The joy of having collected enough honey, saved bees from their natural enemies and earning make it a fun experience.
The graphics, images and the sound effects are nice. We loved the option to switch from game’s soundtrack to what’s playing on iPad. For a game that is indented to be played for a long time, the game’s soundtrack can be monotonous. So ability to switch to iPad’s Music is a well thought of feature.
