Game written with my M2K 2D engine for Linux, Android, Windows under GPL, code is open source. Most of music from scene-org.
M2K engine based on Lua language + love framework.
Game can read direct maps written in hobeta $C format ZX-Spectrum Rescue map editor and use it.
New version of course have map editor support joystick and have save ability. Players can create maps and exchange its if they want.
I not planning ANY monetizing game, any ads/promo/lootbox or etc signs of badware.


Im can only hope allowing bring new life to the game Rescue.
I love spectrum games. At this moment im working with my friend on animation and im still developing M2K engine code

Rescue and Colony is old game created by Mastertronic in 1985 year for Zx-spectrum platform.

We have a party for playing old Rescue game for a time with friends. Who is faster save all scientists for time. My best result 8min on original map. I try found my scores i write it on a paper ) include writing map number of course.
