Question & Answers
Is there any strategy in bee cells?
I play this game over and over again like a rat hitting the lever to get cheese even though it never is successful. i have gotten to 750, but can't get past that or even match it, yet i keep playing thinking that i'll eventually see the strategy needed to advance. most games allow you the experience of progressive mastery, but i think this is more like running in place. anyone broken through or am i looking for something that is not there?

I got to 794 and can't get any further or as you say even close. just think they stopped developing it a long time ago. that's a pity though as its an addictive game.

I've gotten to 1138, but it took me 2 years of playing daily for hours. it's the game version of crack; highly addictive with no positive return, just the endless hope for a breakthrough. run while you can. there is no hope for me, but you can still save your soul.

What have y'all tried? I've tried the following with mixed results:
* Only move balls to spaces when connecting others, don't chase simply linking balls together 1 by 1.
* Hold off making a string of 6 until you have more, thus taking more balls off the grid. Careful doing this because if the game adds the 6th ball making a set, you only get one point.
* Even if you cant make sets, cluster the balls Together that align with balls coming up (obvious!)
* When trapped with no more moves and you have clusters of 5 balls, pull balls away if you can so the game can potentially place balls near yours and complete a set, extending your game. You only get 1 point when the game completes your set, but at least it keeps you alive.

I think its good for relaxation and thinking about making moves in life. Once one problem evaporates, there is more wiggle room to eliminate others.

After 6 balls, it doubles your score.. hope that helps

Yes there is a strategy. Actually Three: One, economy of movement is everything. Two, being flexible. If you line up colors and see something else pop up, don't keep working on trying to match up your other "pet" colors. The more smart you can move a matching color (less moves) the less balls fill up to block you. Three: if a space opens up and there are several of the same color balls to choose from to link, grab the colored ball from the "hardest" area first. Then as space fills up chances are you will still be able to connect colored balls with the nearer, also-available balls.

Glad to know everyone else has the same results. Got to 900 one day but average score rarely gets past 350. I play while listening to Audiobooks on my iPad and use it for relaxation. Wish they would develop a similar game.
