From the Manufacturer
The high flying game of honey fun. Be the last player left with a honey disk and you win. Bobbin' Bumblebee comes near your honey, press the end of the paddle nearest you to flip him clear. He'll twist, turn, fly in circles and loop the loop.

But seeing as how used copies of Loopin' Louie run anywhere from $75-$100, Bobbin' Bumblebee is a very good substitute and still fun to play for both kids and adults.
The game was a blast. It was great fun being able to knock someones honeycomb off, and we all got laughs and jeers when we knocked our own honeycombs off due to overzealous 'bops'. I even knocked the thing super high - it spun around and dove bomb directly on my honeycombs!
This game is no 'hungry hippos'. It's a fun game that both kids and adults can enjoy. It's easy to learn, quick playing, and has a great theme.
The original Louie has a little better physics going for it. In Bobbin' Bee it is extremely difficult to make a 270 degree shot to knock the person to your left out. I think taping a quarter to the weight end may help. I'll have to experiment.
This is great fun for adults as much as kids because adults are usually better at developing the feel of how hard you need to hit it to force a knock out of your opponents. At late night drink parties this is a real hit. I think one previous reviewer didn't understand that it's not so much about protecting your honeycombs as it is hitting it just right so that your opponents can't defend against a dive bomb.
To play a full game, the winner of each round pulls out a honeycomb and the winner is the person that has only one honeycomb in their rack that doesn't get knocked out. I don't think those rules were included.
All in all it's a great substitute if you can't get the original Loopin' Louie and I'm happy to own both especially at amazon's price.
It isn't very educational-I can't think of what it teaches kids, except maybe eye hand coordination and learning to play together.
