About The Game

Exed Exes is an early vertically scrolling shoot-em-up arcade game.


This game is also known as "Savage Bees".

Roberto Picelli holds the official record for this game with 1,320,800 points.

Tips and tricks

  • If you manage to shoot all the first few screens worth of enemies (which is much easier with two players) you get rewarded with a group of dragonflies moving across the top. Each dragonfly is worth 10,000 points.
  • Watch out for WOPs, which are POWs in reverse. They reduce your power level.
  • There are special POWs that turn enemies into fruit. They're not the pretty POW on a circular background - those give power-ups - these are just the word POW. If you find one of these, hold off on using it until you get several of the bigger enemies onscreen. They're worth 5,000 points in their fruit form.
