Some more info about the game...

Risky Rescue is about flying and saving the people . Choppers (or other flying vehicles) are controlled with very simple (but innovative) two-touch controls.
On each level player is expected to collect all the victims and return to the landing.
Initially there will be two modes available - levels and endless mode. There is also expected multiplayer mode in one of the updates.
The main goal of the game is to pass all the levels in all the sceneries - some of them are really hard (thanks to many different dynamic obstacles like windmills, barriers, ships, planes, balloons, etc).

If you have any questions feel free to ask

Tell us more about your innovative controls. Controls could make the difference.

Dark Style, I'm sending some short gameplay video to give you the feel of the gameplay.
I'm really curious if you'll guess how the controls work .

Some better trailer coming soon!

Thanks for this short gameplay video. I do not see (as djstout did) Retry there. I assume that it is a combination of Timberman and FlappyBird: By tapping left/right on the screen you are FlappyBird-ing to the left/right. The term "innovative" is a bit overrated. Anyhow, it could be another really funny casual game. I hope it is challenging! Looking forward to try it.

Good point about similarities to Timberman and Flappy Bird, however controls are a bit different - you can simply "hold" left or right to go up left / right, when releasing you go down left or right (in direction in which you recently flew up). In addition to this, many choppers have "boost" using two touches in the same time. I haven't seen games with such concept and that's why I wrote "innovative"
Some people told it's like a mixing old-school snake game (the similarity here is you collect things and most of levels are "one screen" levels) with flappy bird (you need to be very careful and fast on some levels).

Many people have said the game is really difficult (too difficult) on further levels, however I love difficult games .
