New Game Under Development: Wing Leader

I have been working on a new game this year. It’s a race game for Android. Not cars … bees.

The game is called “Wing Leader”. Your bee races against another bee. It’s a race to see who can get to the hive fastest.

Actually, there is more to a race than just moving fast. You have to pick up nectar along the way. The hive expects nectar so honey can be made. So while you are speeding along, you stop at flowers to pick up nectar. The winner of the race is the bee with the best finish time, after adding in penalty time in case you show up without the required ten units of nectar.

Here’s a screenshot to show you how scoring works. Notice that your bee could win even though it had a slower finish time. That’s because the pink bee came in without a full load of nectar.

Wing Leader is a bit different than other racing games because of the penalty time.

And then there are leaderboards …

Best Bee In The World

On the screen, you are racing against an AI bee, but really you are competing against all the other bees in the world. Your goal is to be the fastest bee in the world.

Leaderboards in Wing Leader show who has the fastest times on each of the four courses. What you will want to do is put in a good time on all four courses.

In this way, Wing Leader is a bit like some of the Olympic skiing events where there is a combined score of two or more different events to determine the winner. In Wing Leader, the overall title “Wing Leader” is for the bee with best average score across all four courses.

Each time you play, you see where you stand on each of the courses and for the overall title of “Wing Leader”.
