DescriptionThe Hive is very similar to Rebel Assault. All levels are rendered, with limit interactive influence by the user (works best with mouse). At the beginning, the game seems to be cool because of the different level designs, but later it gets repetitive, the designers ran out of ideas.

DifficultyThe makers of The Hive evidently thought people were "sissies" for wanting an easy mode, so they didn't build one into the original program executable, only a "practice" mode that plays two levels. After much public outcry that the game was too hard, they finally released Hive 1.01, which included an "easy" mode. But the creators released it begrudgingly:
By popular demand, here it is...a build of The Hive's executable that supports an "easy" level of difficulty.
Keep in mind, this new switch doesn't make the game a gift by any means. It might better be labeled: easier. The enemies all attack you with the same ferocity as "normal", but your health bar repair rate is higher.
