Hive is a board game with a difference. There is no board! The pieces are added to the playing area thus creating the board. As more and more pieces are added the game becomes a fight to see who can be the first to capture the opposing Queen Bee.

The soldier ants battle to keep control of the outside of the hive, whilst the Beetles climb up to dominate the top. Spiders moving into holding positions as the Grasshoppers jump in for the kill. Keeping one eye on the hive and the other on your opponents reserves, the tension builds as one wrong move will see your Queen Bee quickly engulfed; …. game over!

Hive’s unique gameplay is suitable for players of all ages. The game is quickly learned but hard to master like other classic games of its genre. Interface elements clearly indicating where a player may move or place their pieces makes this version easier for the novice to learn than the tabletop version, and players without a partner will be challenged by the AI opponent.

Hive is a beautiful 3D game that allows the player to choose from different sets of pieces and different colored backgrounds. While Hive is not traditionally played on a board, users may display a hex grid to aid their visualization of the game’s possibilities and movements.

This version of Hive includes the Mosquito, a parasitic new Hive piece that takes on the abilities of its neighbors. Use your Mosquito cleverly as an extra Ant, Beetle or Spider. Tournament rules forbidding placement of the Queen Bee as the first move are also an option for each game.

The single player mode features four levels of difficulty. As the player defeats each level, the next is unlocked. Two players can also play each other using one device in hotseat mode.

• You want to get a (or another) tattoo
• You love tattoos and can’t get enough looking at them
• You want to help us by giving feedback to improve the app

• You don’t care about tattoos
• You only criticize other tattoos and the people having them


Daily there are hundreds of new, fresh, real tattoo to discover. We are fascinated by the vast range of tattoos people are doing every single day. We love to discover real tattoos and we hope so do you!

Of course when you are getting tattooed and are looking for inspiration you need to know some styles you like and need a way to discover more of the same type. That’s why we support tags natively and show it along the tattoos. Simply click on tag you want to see more of and boom you will have loads of tattoos of the same style.

Some of the most popular tags on the app:
• Small
• Flower
• Thigh
• Dots
• Line

You can alway discover the latest popular tags in the search tab.

Don’t find something as a tag? No problem, just use our powerful search to find any kind of tattoo. Enter any term or combination of terms. The search also will find closely related tattoos. Sure, thousands of tattoos to search through are cool but you know that’s really cool? A million tattoos. We are working hard to achieve this! :)

See something you like? With Inked you can easily save your favorites and always have your best tattoos with you. The best thing though is that you can gaze at them whenever you want and show them securely to anyone!

No more:
• Scrolling through you camera roll trying skip over the embarrassing shots when you want to show a tattoo to your friend or an artist
• Searching through you PC folders, not finding what you had in mind
• Not having your browser bookmarks with you all the time
• Wireless transferring pics you found on your computer to your phone (no, we didn’t make this up, people are actually doing this!)


Even though Inked is already really useful for many cases, the app is far from finished and we have much planned for it but we wanted to give you access to the app as soon as possible. The development also won’t stop and the app will become more and more powerful. But on the other hand we are also very focused on quality and keeping the app as simple as possible while still providing you more useful features!

There’s always room for improvement, so make sure to let us know what you think, what’s missing, what you like or don’t like and what could be improved! We are reading every email ( and comment and come back to you!
