Mr. Rescue is a freeware arcade action game centered around evacuating (throwing) civilians from burning buildings. Players must avoid overheating and decide quickly if extinguishing fires are worth depleting slowly regenerative water resources. While regeneration sounds like it simplifies things, some fires will aggressively pursue you. The flames may look cute, but they can get you to game over in a flash.
Danish developers Simon Larsen and Lukas Hansen formed Tangram Games this year, and Mr. Rescue is the duo's second game. "We chose the name Tangram because we liked the symbolism of a game with such a simple mechanic and yet so many possibilities," they wrote on their website. I can't wait to see what other game possibilities they create!
