Rescue Rover is a computer puzzle game from id Software, published by Softdisk in 1991. The game was distributed as shareware, with the first 10 levels making up the shareware version, and another 20 levels being present in the registered version.
This is one of several games written by id to fulfill their contractual obligation to produce games for Softdisk, where the id founders formerly were employed. A sequel, Rescue Rover 2, soon followed.
Roger and Rover are the names of the 2 main characters. Rover the dog is frequently kidnapped by robots, and it is the player's (Roger the owner) job to enter into robot territory and get him back, hence the name "Rescue Rover".
This Video Game contains examples of:
- Killer Robot: Those robots will not hesitate to kill Roger if he lets them.
- One-Hit-Point Wonder: Roger can be killed in one hit.
- Save the Princess: More like Save The Dog.
