Designed for iOS and Android, Bee Brilliant is a game by Tactile Entertainment that falls under what could be the most popular sub-category of mobile gaming – Match 3. There really isn’t anything to it – you have different-colored bees and spiders, there are about 120 levels to complete and six different game modes, and the usual fundamentals of Match 3 gaming apply in here. There aren’t too many twists here that set it apart from the rest of the pack – we’d say Bee Brilliant is one of the more casual Match 3 titles out there. But everyone needs to start somewhere, and if you’re a beginner, you may want to take a look at our compilation of Bee Brilliant tips and tricks that can help you get started and on your way to some early success in this game.
1. Take Your Time
Bee Brilliant is a Match 3 game that doesn’t give you any time limit to complete a level. That’s what makes it such a good title for those who are just getting into the genre. What you do have, however, is a specific amount of moves, and you need to make the most of all of them. That said, slow and steady will often do it – review the board and plan your moves ahead of time.
2. Busy Bees Can Help You Advance
The game doesn’t say how many bees you have to match in order to get a Busy Bee, but making big chain combos can help you get one. When you match Busy Bees, that results in the entire row getting cleared out, and the bigger your chain, the more Busy Bees you’ll have to play around with. Getting two Busy Bees in one match wouldn’t just clear out pieces horizontally, but vertically as well. And when dealing with frozen baby bees (or “Babees”), Busy Bees can help them break free faster, thus helping you fulfill your objectives with less moves.
3. Don’t Settle For Combos Of Three
Of course, there will be situations where matching three bees would be your only recourse, but if you can create chains of more than three, do it – you’ll only end up wasting your moves if you go Match 3 all the way.
4. Watch Ads To Get Freebies
Watching in-game ads can be tedious. We get that, but that’s also how developers earn money. But watching ads in Bee Brilliant won’t just help out the developers in this case. Like in other mobile games, watching ads will get you some freebies, and the freebies we’re talking about here are Busy Bee Boosters. Once you reach the higher levels, you’ll see why these boosters are so important.
5. Connect Your Game To Facebook
Another way to get a Busy Bee Booster is by connecting your game to Facebook. But once you’ve done that, you might want to do what you’ve seen from other friends sending invites to play Candy Crush or similar Match 3 games. Yes, you may annoy a few people if you send the invites out at random, but if you know someone who plays Match 3 games on their mobile devices, try adding them up so they can give you additional lives when you need them.
