A Bee platformer? Interesting.. it might be worth checking out then..
Its pisses on most DS games.
Yeah its basically the same as the GBA Maya the Bee 1 & 2 which were ok platformers by the just "ok" Shin'en. Theres a lot worse out there thats for sure.
This crap game was NOT developed by Shin'en. That's the reason why they are not mentioned in the credits. They only developed the two former GBA titles. The Nintendo DS crap was developed by Independent Arts - an awful german developing house specialised in low cost and low fun Nintendo DS and GBA games.
Got a laugh out of the nfo
I don't think anyone actually said it was developed by Shin'en, but the engine used in the game was based on theres so they should at least get some credit.
This is like, totally, _THE_ B-Game, duh, lolz
First of all, this is a region dupe:
0713 - Biene Maja Klatschmohnwiese
The first two GBA games were by SHIN`EM, and imo one of the best GBA jump`n`runs ever.
THE DS game is made by INDIPENDENT ARTISTS, and sadly not as good as the GBA prequels. It`s not SHIN`EM. YOu see, hear and feel it, but it is still a nince jump`n`run.
I can`t understand why people bash games by cover design or name?
is pretty good.
Agreed. The game does deserve some justice, and I doubt many folks who've commented in this thread have tried it yet. I have, and it reminds me of Yoshi's Island. It's a pretty well-thought out platformer. I like the jump / fly mechanic and the requirement of honey to allow you to fly. It's an easy game, for sure, but for those who enjoyed Yoshi's Island, they'll probably also really appreciate this game. I dig it.
I totally remember Maya the Bee in the States from when I was a weester...though my fellow TEMPers are right, I don't think it ever took off in the USA as much as other countries.
Holy shit !!! Exactly, I remember watching it as a little kid... That was around 20 years ago... Im going to download it right now hehe !
