Stick Man Rescue is another Playstation Minis game which will be released on January 18, 2012. However, European Playstation Plus subscribers will be able to download the game on January 4th, and North American Playstation Plus subscribers will get the game on January 10th.

From the press release:

    A new game was announced today in which countless innocent stick men will perish unless players do their heroic duty and rescue them. Developed and published by TikGames, Stick Man Rescue will be available in North America and Europe for the PSP® (PlayStation®Portable) system as a PSP® minis title, initially offered only to European PlayStation®Plus subscribers on January 4, 2012 and North American PlayStation®Plus subscribers on January 10. All other gamers will be able to download Stick Man Rescue in Europe on January 18 and in North America on January 24.

    “I know I’m not the only guy who grew up drawing stick men on fire, falling off cliffs, or landing on spikes,” said Alex Tikhman, Co-Founder and VP of Publishing & Business Development for TikGames. “Back then, I wanted to make a video game out of it. Today, we’ve made a lot of people’s morbid stick-dreams finally come true with Stick Man Rescue. Of course, people will want to save the stick men like they’re supposed to, not kill them, right? Right?”

    Stick Man Rescue is an action/arcade game in which players must pilot a futuristic troop transport copter as they fly through thirty dangerous levels filled with deadly traps in an attempt to rescue black stick men. The Evil Blue Stick Minions are out in force, with stick murder on their minds. Players must prevent their stick men from being burned alive, smashed, decapitated, blown up, electrocuted, dissolved by acid, and other classic demises. To combat the Evil Blue Stick Minions’ zeppelins, paratroopers, and steam rollers, players can power up their copter with weapons like bombs, missiles, flame throwers, and more. Of course, players could just sit back and idly watch their stick men die hilariously horrible deaths…but then they wouldn’t finish the level. What to do, what to do?
