Damn this looks intriguing! Please provide some feedback when you can.
Not sure how long I can resist the temptation on this one...

Wonder if it's related to the PC games. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Emergency_%28series%29

Yes it is the same developers... will play some more tonight and put me review here asap!

1st impression is it's more time management than strategy and a bit too much on rails but I'm getting into some later missions now so we'll see if that changes.

EDIT: Secondly I would like to quickly say that they HAVE considered touch screen well compared to most 'conversions' and simplified the control from the PC version to work well... but I guess that is als what is giving it the time management feel...

More words to come in the next day or 2!

I liked the PC Version so I`ll give it a try. Expect the usual in around two Hours, maybe less

My little review after getting about 2 thirds of the way through.

It's definitely showing its age with rudimentary gameplay but I've found it to get a bit more interesting as the missions have gotten harder - probably only because there's more to do. It still feels quite restricted in that you have to do things in a certain order (use cutters to remove trapped person, then medic to treat, then stretcher to move to ambulance, then ambulance to tell it to leave...) Like they have no brains and you must grind the routine every time. No offence meant by this but it's typically German in the feel of game mechanics.

Getting your efficiency up to get more points seems to be the "game".💩

I got 1 silver medal but mostly bronze and in all honesty don't feel like playing them again to get better results... it's just not that engaging.

I'll stick to it until the end but it's not the game I was expecting. Although they did a good job of making it touch friendly, they removed too much control IMO... It is possible, just look to Autumn Dynasty.

For 69p it's a OK distraction for a while but the idea is better than this execution.

LOL hate to tell you this but that's how it is. Looks pretty cool never played the pc version. I'll probably give it a whirl for a buck.

Hehe yeah, I know! But it could be streamlined for a game... if you try it let me know what you think! You'll see what I mean
