I like Freez Bees and it's a good version. The movement of the penguin is especially good, and generally all the graphics were of reasonable quality. The odd, blob-like snow bees are particularly comical when they lie dazed against the electrtcifed wall. Their eyes spin round and round. The sound is good, but again Blaby's is better. The control keys have a decent layout and Kempston owners are catered for. With all its elements and 10 skill levels, this game will never become too easy, but it remains very playable.

Freez'Bees has the most options open to the player, is you can after the speed of the game from 0 to 9, there are good instructions, and a useful hold-and-quit key. When pushed, the ice blocks move very quickly to their destination - they also instantly crush the nasties. Freez snow bees are not over-intelligent, thank goodness, but once on your trail they won't let up. The penguin himself waddles about most convincingly. The responsive keys are well placed and both sound and colour have been well used.
