Rescue 1: lift off

iOS (iPad, iPhone, iPod touch)

Rescue 1: lift off is an extremely addictive helicopter game along similar lines to ‘Learn to Fly’ on Kongregate – one of the most popular Kong games of all time.  The game allows you to earn coins for launching your chopper over vast distances, collecting pick-ups and rescuing stranded and injured people along the length of New Zealand (and beyond, if you are any good!).  Upgrade your chopper with actual models used for helicopter rescue since 1975, then strap on rockets and other awesome upgrades to go for maximum distance.

  • Easy to pick up and play, but lots of depth
  • Absolutely stunning graphics
  • Perform daring rescues along the length of New Zealand
  • Rockets and other awesome upgrades
  • Game Center achievements
  • Hours and hours of fun

“Rescue 1:lift off” is off the ground!

After a short delay due to some technicalities with the App Store, Pixelthis announces the arrival of our new game for iOS and Android.

Rescue 1: lift off

Rescue 1: lift off  is launched in partnership with the Rescue 1 television reality drama, and with the Auckland Rescue Helicopter Trust (ARHT) who run Auckland’s Westpac rescue choppers.

A large portion of the proceeds of the game go directly to Auckland’s Westpac rescue choppers.  It is not often that you receive so much in return for a donation to a worthy cause.

As you have come to expect from Pixelthis, Lift off features stunningly drawn scenery and in-game graphics, and looks spectacular both on tablets and high-res screens as well as smaller form-factors.  The game starts just north of Auckland and flies south over New Zealand featuring many of the major landmarks along the way, all rendered beautifully in a distinctive art style.  During play testing, many of our testers stayed low just to get a look at the landscape!

We are already planning some major updates for the coming weeks.  Grab your copy today, give it a go, and let us know what you think of it!

Sheepish (iOS, PC)

Old MacDonalds sheep station is suffering from a nasty drought. The sheep are quickly running out of grass, and all grassy paddocks look more like prickly hay bails! The neighbouring station has plenty of grass but is very far away.

Cross more than 100 levels of barren deserts, haunted graveyards and snow-covered wastelands over four stages as you complete tricky puzzles and puzzling obstacles to get to the fresh grass. There are also hidden secrets along the way. Try to find them all for the biggest highscores and bonuses!

“This puzzle game is addictive…The puzzles are well thought out and have a very calculated difficulty gradient.”
– PC World magazine

“It’s polished, got great graphics and cool sounds that go well with the game. And some of the levels have been quite curly already in the early stages of play. I’m becoming addicted quite quickly.”

“it offers so much content for such a small price. It is a very good looking game, it has lush levels, crisp artwork, and even a good looking map. Sheepish ramped up the difficulty at a pace that was perfect.”
