Andrew Derse (andrewderse) | 2 comments All I can remember is that the kid goes to an arcade of sorts and goes into a room where they are displaying a "new" type of game. Now, this was literally pre game-cube era and I naturally thought of the name for this room to be "the game cube" room.

In the game, one of the first levels was for the kid to face off against some oversized bees.

The kid loses the first time and has to reset, but then soon realizes that the second (or third time) if he dies in the game, he dies in real life.

I read this book when I was in elementary school in the early 90s.

See the description of the scene here http://www.sparknotes.com/lit/endersg...

Andrew Derse (andrewderse) | 2 comments I recently re-read Ender's game so I know it's not that one. Maybe I mistook that to be a part of this book as well. I'll edit my original question to remove that part.
