Rescue! In Rescue! the player is tasked with rescuing people... in space!

A shuttle in the form of a ball will enter at the top of the screen, flying horizontally. When the player presses a button it will leave a square behind and drop down. using the 4 and 5 keys the player can nudge it to the left and right. Somewhere on the ground there's a single safe spot to land. The player must reach that spot while avoiding moving particles. Once landed one of the people will load on-board, after which the player must fly back to the square tile, again avoiding the moving particles.

The player has a limited number of shuttles and each level has a number of people to be rescued. Each level features more floating particles making the journey more difficult. There are also three different difficulty levels. [source:mobygames]
