How do I get a gold coin?
To get a gold coin, you have to score at least 10000 points on a level. You can sometimes
score 10000 points if you get a lot of combos, but the easiest way to get 10000 points is
to get a SUPER BONUS by clearing the background honeycomb image. Notice that each level contains an image in the honeycomb (usually a bird, animal, plant, or something from the forest). This image is important! To clear the honeycomb image, you have to use special tokens that the queens give you during the game. When you clear part of the image, you will see part of the image fall off and underneath will be glowing (you have to get the whole image glowing). When there are just a few sections of the image level not glowing, those sections will be outlined in black to help you find them. To find out more about what tokens to use when clearing the background, see How do I clear the background honeycomb image?
How do I clear the background honeycomb image?
Each level has an image in the background honeycomb (for example, a plant, bird, animal, insect, etc.). To clear this honeycomb image, you need to use the special tokens that you recover by rescuing queens. The first token you can use is called the Honeycomb Token. When you have this token and set some bees free, any parts of the honeycomb image inside of the area outlined by the bees will be knocked off. For example, if you set 3 bees free in a triangle, any parts of the image inside the triangle will be removed. When parts of the image get knocked off, the inside will glow. (Hint: Try to find a loop of bees and position the bees over the area of the image you want knocked out, then try to move the other bees so that no lines are crossing over the loop.) Once there are only a few sections of the image left, those parts of the image will glow with a black outline to help you find them. Once you clear the entire image, you will get a SUPER BONUS.
Later in the game, you will receive a Rain Cloud Token. When you use this token, a rain cloud will come and drop rain on the honeycomb and knock out some parts of the image. Where the rain falls is random but it can sometimes take out a large area. Another token you can use to clear the honeycomb image is the Spark Token. When you use a Spark Token, pick up a bee. The token will fly to the bee and the bee will start sparking. Then drag the bee over the parts of the image you want to clear and the sparks will knock out parts of the image. Note that the sparkler does not last too long so you'll have to be quick.
To clear the background image in the bonus levels, just wait around 10 seconds. Then your bee will start sparking - just drag the bee over the parts of the background image to clear them. If you can clear the entire image, you'll get a SUPER BONUS.
How do I get into a secret level?
To get into the secret levels, you have to start collecting gold coins. If you can get a gold coin in each level of a particular area, you will unlock a secret level for that area. For example, if you go to the stream scene, you need to get a gold coin in each of the levels the start with 'Level 3-?' (you need to get an emerald in the bonus level). To see how to collect gold coins, check out: How do I get a gold coin?. There are
a total of 10 secret levels, one for each area of the game. Note that there are only secret levels in the TangleBee Classic game.

To find the hidden queen, you must go to the 3rd area, the stream (each level should have a title similar to 'Level 3-X').

How do I make the bees dance?
You can make the TangleBees do a little dance and you might have even made them dance by accident
and not known how you did it. Here's a hint: the bees like flashing lights and if you can
make some flashing lights they will dance for you. Need more information? Well, keep reading...
Notice that when you put your mouse cursor (the white hand) over a bee, a number of bees will
light up (this tells you which bees that bee is connected to). Now pick another bee (preferably
one that is close by). Move the mouse cursor back and forth between those two bees so that
they both light up (there's no need to click on the bees but that works too). If you keep
moving your cursor back and forth between two bees, they all will start dancing. Now there
is another dance you can make the bees do too. Here's a hint: instead of moving your cursor
back and forth between *two* bees, try...

OK, tell me exactly what the secret moves are!
Here is a list of all the secret moves:
Some of these secret moves take some practice. Keep trying!
- Dance Number One - Select two bees that are close together. Move your mouse cursor
(the white hand) over top of each bee, alternating back and forth. Do this about 10 times and
the bees will all start to dance.
- Dance Number Two - Select three bees that are close together. Move your mouse cursor
(the white hand) on top of each bee, in order (1, 2, 3, 1, 2, 3, etc...) Do this about 10 times
and the bees will do a different dance.
- Dizzy - Click on a bee to make him look at your hand. Then do make circles around the bee with
your mouse cursor so that his eyes go around and around. If you do this enough times the bee will get
- Put a Bee to Sleep - Click on a bee to make him look at your hand. Then move your mouse cursor
left and right in front of the bee so that his eyes look left and right. Repeat this enough times
and you will hypnotize the bee and he will fall asleep. If you move your hand too fast, it won't work
and if you move your hand too slow he'll lose interest.
- Sleep Walking - Once a bee is asleep, pick up the bee and very slowly move him to another position.
If you move him slow enough, he won't wake up.
- Waking a Bee - Once a bee is asleep, click on him once to wake him up.
- Annoy a Bee - Click on one bee a bunch of times and he will start to get annoyed at you (his antennas will move).
- Really Annoy a Bee - Keep clicking on one bee and eventually he'll get so annoyed he won't let you pick him up.
- Shaking a Bee - Pick up a bee and shake him back and forth. If you do this too much, he'll get annoyed with you and
won't let you pick him up.
