How do you turn the blue skeleton bees into gold ones? I read that very extensive guide on DDP that guy wrote, but I still don't understand the blue bee thing

You need the top of your laser to go through the bee icon. This is accomplished by positioning yourself underneath a bee either without shooting temporarily or using only the shot temporarily* and then using the laser so it extends through the bee icon.


B is blue bee icon
G is golden bee icon
A is player ship
I is laser

Code:
|               |         I    |  I          |
|               |         I    |  I          |
| B             | B       I    |  B          |
|               |         I    |  I          |
|               |         I    |  I          |
|        A      |         A    |  A          |
|               |              |             |
|       1       |      2       |      3      |
= :(

Code:
|               |              |             |  I          |
|               |              |             |  I          |
| B             | B            |  B          |  G          |
|               |              |  I          |  I          |
|               |              |  I          |  I          |
|        A      | A            |  A          |  A          |
|               |              |             |             |
|       1       |       2      |     3.1     |     3.2     |
= :)

*Tapping the shot button once or rapidly tapping it = shot
Holding down the shot button = laser

Doesn't it also work if there's an enemy in front of it, which you blow up with the laser, and then the tip of the laser will activate the bee icon when the enemy is gone?

Yes.

So in any case, the bee icon appears if you reveal its "skeleton" and you hit the skeleton with the tip of your laser.
