i played this the other night, its a cute little thing but the last section with the bee was kind of annoying

Yeah, this didn't overwhelm me. Generally unintuitive and repetitive. Nice candy-color visuals but hardly innovative. Sorta meh.

I was much more into the new DoubleFine minigame platformer 'Tashas' Game' which is much better than either of the first two we've tackled.

This stuff is shades of I Wanna Be The Guy, another indie platformer based on fake 2D platforming rules and overcoming insane repetitious death. Gave up on the bee section.

Karoshi is actually really similar, but far more amusing. At least each screen there is broken up into its own level that you can select, so it's less annoying on that level.

Tasha's Game is FANTASTIC, btw!

Finally passed the bee bit. Not missing anything by giving up there. Crappy ending.
