Description

Buzz Bombers is an arcade action game similar to Centipede. You control a can of bug spray at the bottom of the screen, and you need to defend yourself from the swarms of incoming bees. The bees start at the top of the screen, and fly their way back and forth, slowly heading towards the bottom of the screen. If they reach the ground, they will pollinate the flowers there which causes them to grow and will restrict movement of your spray can. When you shoot a bee, it will turn into a honeycomb. The honeycombs will cause the bees to head towards the ground even faster, since they will turn around when one is in their way. Your spray can is able to shoot the honeycombs, but if you leave them in place a hummingbird will fly around and eat the honey from them. The more honey the hummingbird eats, the more points you get. The game ends when all of your spray cans are destroyed by growing flowers.

Trivia

Sponsorship deal

Mike Breen's brief was to develop a game similar to, but different from, Centipede. The result was Buzz Bombers. The marketing department approached the manufacturers of RAID bug spray to see if they would sponsor the game, Mike Breen even got as far an producing a demo version using a RAID can. The idea 'got a cool reception' and the deal never took place.
