Description Edit | History

"Word Rescue is an educational platform game written by Karen Crowther (Chun) of Redwood Games and released by Apogee Software in March, 1992. The game revolves around matching words with their pictures, introducing simple vocabulary such as "sit", "purple", "one", "hat", etc., while avoiding various dangers.

Like many Apogee games of the time, Word Rescue includes 3 episodes, with only the first episode playable in the shareware version.

* Episode 1 - Visit Gruzzleville and the Castle
* Episode 2 - Explore GruzzleBad Caverns
* Episode 3 - See the spooky Haunted House

Apogee still sells the registered version of this game.

The game is followed by Word Rescue Plus."
