Mr. Rescue

Firefighting game made with LÖVE, developed by Tangram Games.

About Mr. Rescue

Mr. Rescue is an arcade styled 2d action game centered around evacuating civilians from burning buildings.

The game features fast paced fire extinguishing action, intense boss battles, a catchy soundtrack and lots of throwing people around in pseudo-randomly generated buildings.

As of version 1.02 we have added XBox 360 controller support and fullscreen modes.

How to run the game

To run Mr. Rescue you will need the awesome LÖVE framework.

You can download LÖVE for free at
It only takes a minute.

Most Linux distributions also have LÖVE in their software repository.
Search for "love" or "love2d".

If you have LÖVE installed simply double-click the .love file to run the game.
If you retrieved the source code directly, just zip the whole folder and change the extension to .love.

How to play

We highly recommend checking out the ingame how-to but here’s the basics:

  • Your job is to rescue civilians from a burning building.
  • You rescue people by picking them up and throwing them out the window.
  • Equipped with a water gun you must fight your way through flames and fire sprites but remember: your job is to rescue people!
  • When being near fire your suit will accumulate heat. Collect coolants to keep it from overheating.
  • You water tank only has limited capacity. Emptying it will make you water gun overheat so watch your water usage.
