A pair of new hidden object games have a pleasingly straightforward name to describe their inception: I Commissioned Some Bees.

The developer paid illustrators to draw pictures with bees, and you can find the bees. It's quite fun to find the bees. I got into hidden object games a few years back the 100 Hidden X series, and today have enjoyed poring over colourful and often surreal landscapes to find our striped friends. "The brief was simple," the blurb explains. "I commissioned artists to create a fantasy world, and hide as many bees as they can inside it.

Now it's your job to find them all!" The two games have an interesting spread of subjects across their combined 20 levels, including: a vast squid with a town built atop its tentacles; astronauts doing zero-gravity beekeeping; the view across a city skyline; a stained glass window; a pretty archipelago; a surreal land of ooze, eyeballs, tendrils, and hands.

If I had to recommend a single game to start with, I think I Commissioned Some Bees 2 has nicer landscapes and the bee-hunting is more fun.
