Anybody remember Beehive Bedlam? It used to be a game on the old-school Sky box- before the days of Sky+... remember those?! They've just released the game for free online which has made me feel quite nostalgic!

I've already wasted quite a few hours on it. Anyone interested in a high score tournament?!

It's still on there. As far as i know it's the only free game on sky interactive. All the others let you play a short while then ask for money.

Any other games free that you know of?

OMG! I used to LOVE that. Thanks for the link.

Who remembers this snazzy keyboard, too? The buttons used to stick on ours, but I still persisted in using the internet via the TV. Oh, the memories this thread has bought back.

I remember how frustrating it was trying to use one of those keyboards using the talk21 email that used to be on sky, pressing the c was still sent as pressing the number 2 three tiems on a normal remote so it used to take about 2 seconds for it to appear on the screen.

do they still have any email services on sky?

I remember this game very well. I was hooked on this in the early days of Sky Digital in the late 1990's and spent hours playing it trying to beat my high score.

There where quite a few really addictive little games like this on Sky around the same time, but can't remember their names. But Beehive Bedlam was one of the classics

Really? They've put it back on? I just remember my devastation when they suddenly took it away!

Found BB a bit boring but their Fathom game was great as was the one where you used to hunt for things in a maze - something to do with Egyptian mummies IIRC

Yes, unfortunately I do. One time my husband and son were playing that bloody game with the music that goes round and round your head, I fell down the stairs cut my head open and needed stitches. They couldn't wait to get home from the hospital and keep playing the bloody thing.

Yes! I used to love it and still do. There was game on there called Denki Blocks that I used to love too! Oh and Playjam, is that still on there?

Oh and also there was incredibly frustrating game called Fathom that I could never get passed the first level on!

Is it possible to save this game and play it offline?

It's always been on there - never been away.

I play it about once a week when on the phone to my mum - it passes the time!

That game claimed the lives of far to many remote control batteries in my house
