FLY TO THE AID OF DEFENSELESS SCRIBBLES IN ‘STICK MAN RESCUE’

San Mateo, California –18 January, 2011 –  Stick Man Rescue, a humorous game in which players must save stick men from hilarious deaths, is now available in Europe for the PSP® (PlayStation®Portable) system as a “mini” title. Developed and published by TikGames, Stick Man Rescue is available for only €2.99.

“Win or lose, players will enjoy this game,” said Alex Tikhman, Co-Founder and VP of Publishing & Business Development for TikGames. “If they do well and save the stick men, they’ll progress through the game. If they don’t do well, or if they purposely fail for some strange reason, they’ll get to watch stick men get squished by steam rollers, decapitated by ninja paratroopers, or be blown up by an ‘accidental’ bomb from the player’s own copter.”

Stick Man Rescue is an action/arcade game in which players must pilot a futuristic troop transport copter as they fly through thirty dangerous levels filled with deadly traps in an attempt to rescue black stick men. The Evil Blue Stick Minions are out in force, with stick murder on their minds. Players must prevent their stick men from being burned alive, smashed, decapitated, blown up, electrocuted, dissolved by acid, and other classic demises. To combat the Evil Blue Stick Minions’ zeppelins, paratroopers, and steam rollers, players can power up their copter with weapons like bombs, missiles, flame throwers, and more. Of course, players could just sit back and idly watch their stick men die hilariously horrible deaths…but then they wouldn’t finish the level. What to do, what to do?

Stick Man Rescue has been rated 12+ (Violence) by PEGI.  For more information, please visit www.TikGames.com.
