The Birds and the Bees II: Antics was a computer game released for the Commodore 64 and ZX Spectrum.

Boris the Bee was kidnapped by a group of anti-social Chavs and his cousin Barnabee must rescue him.[1] The player must travel through an underground ant complex; which has four different entrances into the above-ground world.[1] Ants must be avoided; as they force the player to lose strength.[1] Pollen must be accessed through flowers in order to gain lost strength.[1]

The general arrangement of the game is a maze; flowers will remove barriers elsewhere in the complex.[1] The individual screens are also self-contained mazes.[1] Each screen may have more than one exit.[1]

Critical reaction[edit]

Antics was placed at number 46 in the official top 100 list that was created by British gaming magazine Your Sinclair.
