Critic Reviews for To The Rescue!
To The Rescue! delivers a meaningful message about animal welfare in a family-friendly package. An inoffensive tycoon game full of cute dogs and happy moments makes running a dog shelter a cheerful task. Yet, that task becomes painstakingly frustrating with a poor interface, micromanaging dozens of pups with a limited inventory and clumsy controls. It doesn’t help that there are many, many glitches and game-breaking bugs. Little Rock Games might be biting off more than they can chew with To The Rescue!.
As of version 1.0.7 of the game, there’s a number of mildly frustrating bugs and issues which take the shine off of To The Rescue! Hopefully, Little Rock Games has the opportunity to patch these as beneath its hiccups, it feels like there’s a good game here. The concept is cute and original, the art style is clean and the game play loop can be quite moreish, so long as you can push though its core annoyances.
To the Rescue! is a simple but complete game. It's easy to play and great to pass the time, although it's a little repetitive and has some confusing commands. It works very well in portraying the reality of foster care work, presenting all the details of the procedures and not putting seriousness aside. It is a competent management game that will meet the expectations of those interested, in addition to having the charisma of dozens of animals in its kennel.

I really enjoyed the interactions with the dogs, seeing the small animations surrounding their feelings were some of the best moments I can think of while playing the game. It, unfortunately, couldn't outweigh the frustrations from the bugs, glitches, and subpar quality of the game in other areas.
