The studio which produced Mr. Rescue (Tangram Games/First Press Games) has made several other games. Their latest game, Tobu Tobu Girl Deluxe is currently slated to ship physical Game Boy cartridges in a month or so, and will be released as completely free and open source software once they ship.
Their Kickstarter campaign may be found here:
In Mr. Rescue you play as a firefighter who rescues people from burning buildings. Each screen has several floors with fire, enemies, power ups, and people to save. Rescuing people is easy, simply throw them outside of the building for the ground crew to catch them. Be quick though, as lingering for too long will cause Mr. Rescue's suit to overheat!

The code is distributed between many projects, but here's the bulk of the API, includes search stuff:
Here's the streamer we made:
