Philips Videopac's 'Killer Bees' Ported To ZX Spectrum

Killer-Bees-Ported-To-ZX-SpectrumIn 1983 Bob Harris created a rather addictive arcade action title by the name of Killer Bees for the Philips Videopac (also knwon as the Magnavox Odyssey2), one which has now been gracefully ported over to the ZX Spectrum.

This surreal hit put you in control of a pack of honey bees tasked with annihilating any beings which dare encroach on the colony's territory. Although simple at first, Killer Bees will have you pulling your hair out after the sticky situations its later levels present.

The ZX Spectrum port going by the same name is the latest creation from World of Spectrum forum member gazj82, a retro gamer who recalls spending countless hours with the original. His recreation of the game has been released online for free in .TAP format - ready for any ZX Spectrum emulator or the compactflash ready DivIDE device.
