A little game called Beesweeper inspired by Minesweeper, but with hexagonal tiles and bees instead of mines. Nothing big, just a little game created as a personal experiment/challenge in a few hours. 

Controls: Left-click on the hexagons to reveal them, and right-click on them to mark them as bees. Reveal all empty spots to win the game.

Options: You can choose the size of the grid and the amount of bees in it.

Sometimes the simplest ideas are the best.  Exhibit A-- or should I say Exhibit B?--Beesweeper! This is one I'll pick up time and time again when I have something else I should be doing.

Thank you so much for your kind words and your donation! It's much appreciated :)

Pretty fun! Only issue is that since the bees are randomized before the player clicks the first square, they can end up losing immediately. In other Minesweeper-like games, it's generally fixed so that the first cell that a player clicks should not contain a mine. Otherwise, good job! ^.^

Thank you very much for your feedback! I thought about this, but didn't think about a solution. Now that you mention one, it seems so simple. Can't believe I didn't think of it. Anyways. I've updated the game now, with your solution implemented. Thanks again.
