Realistic princess in need of rescue.

Have you got what it takes to be a hero? For the first time in video game history* the love of your life has been kidnapped and now you must go on an epic quest to rescue her. Standing between you and your princess are levels of deadly falls, cunning traps, painful weapons and crafty guards. You'll need to use all your skills to run, duck and jump your way to the princess avoiding level after level of treacherous obstacles.

You start each level at the left side of the screen and your aim is to make your way the right side any way possible to continue on your way. Easy, right? Each level becomes a little more difficult as the guards try to thwart your gallant rescue attempt, challenging your puzzle solving skills and testing your reflexes along the way.

The Rescue is the style of game that was common in glory days of Commodore 64 gaming featuring simple yet extremely addictive level design and game-play.
