Description

Beekyr Reloaded is a hardcore cute'em up game (shoot'em up with bees). The game breaks molds, moving away from the typical STG game, avoiding the space theme mixing vertical and horizontal scrolling stages with other fun game mechanics. Each stage is very different from the previous: one level we could be fighting poisonous scorpions, another defending the hive collecting pollen, dodging bee-eaters, raiding dark caves protected by the most evil of wasps: Hornets.

History

Kaleidogames originally released Beekyr in 2013 for Android (as Beekyr: Eco Shoot'em up), and as an Alpha quality version for iOS and PC in July 2014. Shortly after that development on the game stopped, as the developer was expecting a new baby. Back then, the art style made players think it was a game for young children, but in reality it was intended for experienced players. Despite that, there have been almost 20.000 downloads for Android, but the full potential of the game was not realised. Two years later, in 2016, Kaleidogames restarted development with a focus on connecting better with the experienced players it was designed for. A more aggressive look and feel was the result. With new stages, new player types, new game progress map, more enemies (including bosses), analog controllers support, new coop-mode and new attack types.... Beekyr Reloaded (for PC-Windows) was born in October 2017
