GO!GO! ISLAND RESCUE IS LIVE ON THE NINTENDO DSi

MANCHESTER, UK - 29 th October 2010

Acclaimed Puzzler Go! Go! Island Rescue is now live on the Nintendo DSi worldwide. Connect2Media announced earlier this month the arrival of Go! Go! Island Rescue on the Nintendo DSi market and it now available to download from the Nintendo DSiWare Shop. 

The release will be Connect2Media’s first on Nintendo’s DSi Shop and sees the Go! Go! Rescue franchise appearing on a new platform after successful outings on mobile, iPhone/iPod touch and PC. This new version has been developed by the award winning studio Vivid Games. 

In Go! Go! Island Rescue you take the role of Robbie the firefighter whose job it is to protect the hapless "Darwins" from a number of disasters, including rampaging fire, beserking robots and deadly chemicals. How do you save them? By throwing them around, of course, and attempting to fling them in one of the fire exits to secure their escape. With over 50 levels, panic and bonus rooms, a cast of exciting characters and a volcano to deal with Go! Go! Island Rescue on the Nintendo DSi looks set to become a welcome addition to the Nintendo DSiWare Shop.

The first game in the series, Go! Go! Rescue Squad! Garnered much international acclaim including a Gold Award from PocketGamer and, the sequel, Go! Go! Island Rescue was also a critical and commercial success on mobile. The new Go! Go! Island Rescue has been designed, from the ground up, for the Nintendo DSi’s dual screens and Connect2Media are confident that it will build on the success of the series.  

 “Go! Go! Rescue Squad! on the Nintendo DSi is a genuine fun filled gaming experience,” said Connect2Media’s Product Manager, Michael Higham. “The controls are instinctive and before long you are happily‘chucking’ Dweebs to safety. The game also delivers plenty of laughs and a genuine sense of fun. From a business perspective the release marks the franchises appearance on its fourth platform making it a truly multi-platform product.”

Go! Go! Island Rescue is now available on the Nintendo DSiWare Shop worldwide for 500 points.
