Description official descriptions
A side-on scrolling shoot-em-up with a twist: You play as a wasp (actually a man turned into a wasp) seeking revenge for the death of his girlfriend, Yuri, at the hands of the evil Hexaae! Levels include going through a garden (fighting other insects) and a sub-level in the intestines of a rotting rat(!). Designed to look Japanese, this game was actually developed in Germany.

Kaiko really wanted to make this game look like an arcade conversion, including a Japanese title. However, the Japanese title says "Abija" instead of "Apidya".
Actually, the real name of the game is Apidya II (Apidya 2), even though there's no first part. According to Chris Hülsbeck, the "II" in the name of the game was "a gag to provide for some excitement" (from Kaiko history at http://www.nemmelheim.de/).
Five bonus levels were designed for the game, but a bug in the collision detection on the original Amiga version meant that activating the one on level 4 was impossible. A patched version has been produced to run via WHDLoad
