Hive™ - board game for two


Welcome to HIVE™ - free board game for two players (offline & online)

Award-winning board game for two is finally available on Android tablets & phones!

Hive™ is a board game with a difference - there is no board! The pieces are added to the playing area thus creating the board (hexagonal grid). As more and more pieces are added the game becomes a fight to see who can be the first to capture the opposing Queen Bee. You can play this board game free, in offline mode for two players or in online board game multiplayer mode.

The soldier ants battle to keep control of the outside of the hive, whilst the Beetles climb up to dominate the top. Spiders moving into holding positions as the Grass Hoppers jump in for the kill. Keeping one eye on the hive and the other on your opponents reserves, the tension builds as one wrong move will see your Queen Bee quickly engulfed .... game over!

Game's offline modes:
* HOT SEAT - board game mode for two players ; play each other using only one tablet or phone.
* PUZZLE MODE - a bulk of Hive™ puzzles. Great tutorial to game rules & mechanics.

Game's multiplayer mode:
* MULTIPLAYER - board game multiplayer mode allows you to challenge players from all over the world. This will help you master your Hive™ skills and tactics, necessary to become true Hive™ master.

Needs AI Seems interesting. Will pay money for AI otherwise feels incomplete. As someone who generally buys app and physical copy of games the lack of AI hurts this as AI helps user understand and teach game better. Very disappointed.

You're better off with an online java version. I like Hive and play often, but this app needs work. The UI is unintuitive and the puzzle mode has potential but hangs. And of course, still no AI and no pillbug.

Uninstalling Plain and simple- my fiance and I each downloaded the game, had it open to play, and after each taking one turn, it wouldn't let us move any tiles. Tried to double tap, hold and drag... nothin! And I think it's silly you need to each have thr game open to play. You should be able to come back to it to play your turn at your leisure.

Awful Really bad. The tabletop game is so much fun, but this is the worst implementation possible. No single player, puzzle mode is a joke, multiplayer is terrible. Couldn't even move pieces once we started a game. Needs some major improvements.

Finish it before release I can concede that this is a game with some potential, as goods as the original board game. But since you have been working on multiplayer and single player mode for 18 months with no update, I can only assume you are no longer planning to introduce them. Were you were satisfied by your sales as a boardgame? Is that why? I would suggest you finish the app, or remove it
