I seriously can not leave my house without my BlackBerry PlayBook, it's all because of the games, and the 7 inch form factor. Now, do not get me wrong I would love to see more applications come across this tablet (like Instagram, Banking apps, and more). What I will say is that I'm definitely enjoying games like Dead Space, Angry Birds, and now Rope Rescue. Rope Rescue is a physics based game in which your sole job is to help other birds escape from wooden cages. I'm sure you're reading this thinking "Zach, this concept is simple and seems unchallenging. Why buy?", but just wait CrackBerry Nation, just wait. While the idea of helping a bird get out of a cage seems straightforward enough, how you actually go about doing it is far from it.


  • Puzzling levels will keep you wrapped up for hours.
  • Addictive gameplay with multiple solutions for each level will have you playing for hours.
  • Avoid flying knives, fire cannons and of course the evil bats.
  • Collect or purchase butterflies to unlock later levels or provide hints to
  • Visit the bird sanctuary to see the cute baby birds you have rescued
  • HD graphics

Now, to elaborate on the whole complexity of the game, and why you won't just simply fly over to a cage and open the door to let the bird out. They used the word rope rescue for a reason. You will use a rope and fly through obstacles like flying knives and moving barrels, all while trying to use as little rope as possible to get a decent score. I was relived to see a new concept game being developed, while I personally love the angry bird franchise, some developers that are trying to mimic the same experience just haven't hit the nail on the head. Check out the hands on video above, and if you dig the game grab Rope Rescue from BlackBerry App World for $2.99.
