Rope Rescue HD is a puzzle game released by Chillingo Ltd.
“Rescue caged birds in this award-winning puzzle game! Drag a length of rope through a series of gears, and then finally attach it to the cage to release your friends. Pesky enemies, fire, and other rope-wrecking obstacles threaten feathered freedom. Collect butterflies on the way for special bonuses, and try use as little rope as possible for maximum points.”
In this game, you are presented with a puzzle. Rupert is rescuing his fellow birds who have been captured by the bats. You see to take hold of a rope, and then wrap it around wheels to make the hook on the cage open and then released the bird within.
Within the level you will be awarded up to three feathers depending on the length of rope you use to complete the puzzle. You can even run out of rope and can find yourself inches for the cage unable to reach the hook.
As you gain feathers you will unlock new areas and gaining butterfly. The butterflys can be used to unlock final levels and be used for tips on how to complete a difficult level, giving you a little star path to follow.
This all sounds simple, but the puzzles can be complex, with the danger like knifes to cut the rope, cannons firing fireball and bats chasing you. Not to mention on the end of level when TNT strapped to the rope giving you a time limit to complete the challenge.
Currently, the game includes 5 areas with 60 levels in total. Hopefully more will be added in the future.
The game is control by using your finger to move around Rupert as he pulls the rope to release the other birds from their cages.
The graphics and sound are excellent, the graphics of the birds are great and the music is fun and bouncey.
On the upside:
- Cute birds.
- Some nicely designed puzzles.
- Easy and fun to play.
On the downside:
- Too Addictive.
- Game gets very touch at the end of Underground Hideout (Acupuncture level is hard as nails.)
- Sometimes hard to get the timing right as your finger/hand is covering the action.
Overall, this is a really fun and addictive puzzle game. Chillingo have picked a winner here. I wish it could have been a little less tough in places, but hopefully these will be balanced in future updates. This game is going to become a classic like “Cut the Rope” and “Where’s my water”. You would be crazy not to pick the HD version up for 69p right now.
