Bee Panic by Namco is a unique 1-player novelty prize dispensing game that is suitable for arcades as well as street locations!
Bee Panic gives the player options unavailable in other merchandise games. At the start of the game, players choose which prize they want to play for from a selection of prizes. Thos prizes are located within the control panel. After that, the fun begins! Bees appear and disappear randomly within the hexagonal “honey-combs” of the “beehive”. When a bee is “hit”, the player is awarded the points displayed within that particular honey-comb. Players must be careful not to shoot bees carrying negative points, as this will reduce their score. Keeping things exciting, the Queen Bee will ‘heckle’ the player as well!
Once the player reaches 500 points, unlike other prize games, they now have a choice. They can either keep the prize they were playing for or continue with a special challenge stage where they can win a prize with a higher value. If the player is successful and reaches 800 points in the challenge stage within the time allotted, they win a better prize. If they fail in reaching the 800 points they can either stop playing and leave with out any prize or they can coin up and continue play at the challenge stage again.
