Aah Impossible Rescue (AIR)

For immediate release.

"Aah Impossible Rescue" (AIR) is out now on the Xbox Live Indie Games (XBLIG) service. It's an Xbox 360 indie game with a retro feel developed by the tiny independent games company Aah Games. It costs just 80 MS points and appeals to animal-loving action freaks, as it involves steering three damp kittens that repeatedly fall down rivers in some of the strangest parts of the world. With 12 increasingly fast and more dangerous rivers you have your work cut out to get them to safety with your quick reaction. If that isn’t straightforward enough then change the game with the“Silliness” options, including sea-sickness and chameleon modes, or share the joypad with friends to tackle the later impossible levels.

From the back of the box:

A sad kitten is a sad enough sight, but there's nothing sadder than a sad and wet kitten. YOU are armed with an uncanny ability to steer three stranded river kittens from afar. Will they be purring bundles of happiness, or scrawny damp fuzz-monsters? Its up to you in this "arcade kitten rescue mission simulator"!
