Following up on the success of Timberman’s more than 16 million downloads, Digital Melody Games has recently released another demanding arcade game, Risky Rescue. Each level requires you to save people trapped on mountain tops, roofs, suspended platforms, and more. As you get better at the game, you can unlock helicopters with different capabilities to beef up your rescue missions.
Risky Rescue features more than 50 levels in three flat-designed worlds. The graphics are simple, cute, and flat, and the sound effects and music have a classic arcade feel. The game includes innovative snake-like mechanics and “fly gently” rules that are easy to master, but the game itself is challenging enough that you won’t find the action boring or slow. In fact, the game is fast-paced, since you only get a short amount of time to rescue all of the stranded people. Along the way, you will have to avoid windmills, cranes, airplanes, and balloons.
In addition to the levels you can play, Risky Rescue also features an endless mode that challenges you to rescue as many people as possible before the timer runs out. The app includes Game Center integration, so you can compare how well you do in the missions and endless mode with your friends and family.

Risky Rescue is available for free on the App Store, with in-app purchases to buy new helicopters. The game is compatible with iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch, and requires iOS 5.1 or later.
