Maya the Bee: Sweet Gold is the second GBA adventure of the cartoon heroine and was again created by the German handheld professionals Shin’en. The kid-friendly hopscotch would almost have disappeared forever in the turmoil of the Acclaim bankruptcy if Midway hadn’t ripped off the rights.
Once again, you’ll go through 60 bitmap levels in six worlds, scrolling in all directions: the goal is always to find the exit from the section without falling into treacherous chasms or being slowed down by unfriendly insects. Luckily your bee has expanded its abilities: As usual in a hopping game, you put most opponents out of action with a jump on their heads, you crack particularly stubborn fellows and brittle surfaces with a powerful double splash. In addition, you can now fly short distances with your wings, but you have to recharge your batteries regularly in the form of pollen.
When you reach the end of a world, you mount a butterfly and fly through an obstacle course, at the end of which the honey pots you are looking for are waiting. Of course, countless hidden rooms and sections in which you collect flowers, which in turn unlock some extras, should not be missing.
