[prMac.com] London, United Kingdom - Honey Tribe Studios announces the best eco-racer for iOS just got a new update. Once again you can help Corbee the drone bee (and unlikely hero) to save the colony and find out what is making all his friends sick.
If you didn't pick up Honey Tribe the first time round here's what Pocket Gamer had to say about it: "It's rare to find a game with such a strong ecological message as Honey Tribe: Colony Collapse. Honey Tribe is not only a remarkably endearing little game, but it's also incredibly addictive." - Silver Award, 8/10
* Those pesky crab spiders are a bit easier to see now
* The praying mantis won't creep up on you so soon in endless mode
* In both story and endless mode your (bee) ninja skills will now be more apparent
* Endless mode is a whole lot more fun with the improved score system
* Chain scoring gives a bigger score multiplier
* Feel that tension when you collect 50 flowers without getting hit
* Also a few bug fixes
Some more nice things people have said about Corbee and his chums:
"The endearing hand drawn nature of the graphics is a particular shining light to the whole thing making it a touch above the rest in the endless running genre." - 148apps.com, 4/5
"If you're a nature lover, or simply a lover of well-executed games, Honey Tribe: Colony Collapse is worth checking out. Download it today." - AppAdvice.com, 4.5/5
"But the brilliance of this game is that it raises awareness of a real-world problem...This is a good game that's also doing some good." - TouchReviews.net, 4/5

Honey Tribe Studios are an independent development duo concentrating on iOS apps and based in London, UK. They write on their web site 'Over here our main TV network is the BBC, the British Broadcasting Corporation. Their original mantra was 'to inform, educate and entertain'. That sounds pretty good to us. So that's what we want to do with our games. As you read this we're probably experimenting with different ideas for blending fiction and non-fiction: storytelling, art, music, interaction, facts and fun! Copyright (C) 2011 Honey Tribe Studios.
