Choose Your Role


Meet thy family. Play a queen or take on one of three workers as you battle for your hive in two teams.

Attack, fly and stay alive. If you are playing a queen you’ll want to protect your hive and your workers. The responsibilities don’t stop there, having a strategy in place will be beneficial, but you’ll also need to be fluid and keen to your opposing team’s strategy.

Still want responsibilities but rather hustle than dodge death? Workers excel in adaptability which makes them essential for carrying out game-winning objectives. Initially defenseless, workers grab berries and head to the hive, however, they can also boost their speed and become Soldiers. These transformed workers are now wielding maces, swords, shields, and laser rifles becoming deadly aggressors.

Three Paths to Victory

There are three paths to claiming victory in this multiplayer battle:
    * Economic victory: Economic Victories task Workers with collecting berries on the battlefield and bringing them back to their hive.

    * Military victory: Slay the opposing team’s Queen three times with either a Queen or a Soldier.

    * Snail victories are turning out to be a fan favorite and here’s why; one, large, pixel-perfect snail waits in the middle of each map. Hop on the snail and slowly ride it back to base to secure a snail victory.



Win three times, and the game’s over.
