Minotaur Rescue is OpenFeint enabled.

Just to round out your nostalgia trip, why not play one of the two extra bonus games "TANKS!" and "JETS!".

Created by Jeff Minter, one of the most experienced designers in this genre (creator of "Tempest 2000" and "Llamatron), Minotaur Rescue is the first in a planned series of games called the Minotaur Project.

The aim of the Minotaur Project is to create games in the style of old gaming systems but which are satisfying and fun to play for players both ancient and modern.
