Rescue

One dark night, the people of your village were taken by monsters.

To save them, you must enter the caves, and face the deadly Wumpus and Grue. You have agility and rope, but nothing else.


About

Rescue is a 'homebrew' game written for the Pandora handheld.
It was written for the Feb/March 2011 Pandora Homebrew competition, and has been gradually improving since then.
It also runs on PC Linux, Mac and Windows.

It's quite hard, but can be fun and a big challenge.


Download

Open Pandora: rescue.pnd or get it from the repo

PC Linux, Mac, Windows: rescue.zip

The source code is written in my language Cz.

This game is difficult, at least I think so!

I hope to release Rescue++ in Two Months™, with levels, physics, puzzles, and space travel.
