Word Rescue DOS game screenshot DOSGames.com Review:  Rating: 3.5
This game is very similar to Math Rescue but with a literary theme. Supposedly an educational game, this game doesn't seem to provide as much educational merit as some other titles, but it sure is fun for an "educational" game. It's from Apogee (creator of many shareware classics like Commander Keen), so you know it'll have good control, graphics, etc. Its attempts to be educational can be annoying at times ... Basically you're trying to find the letters to make words while avoiding enemies.

Word Rescue is Apogee's first educational
game, yet is a great challenge for adults,
too.  Tons of EGA/VGA graphics, and it was
created using our Duke Nukum-style game
system. Play as a male or a female character
and explore many fascinating locations as
you search for all the stolen words. Three
difficulty levels, auto-save, unlimited
lives, ADlib Music, Joystick and much more!
