3D Realms website:
    A bone-chilling crisis has struck the world! Reports are pouring in from all corners of the globe: Missing numbers! Drivers on streets are in dangerous peril because the speed limit signs have gone blank!

    On Wall Street, stock brokers are throwing up their hands in despair. The Dow Jones isn't down, and it isn't up--it's gone! You start to call your best friend, but the buttons on your phone are blank!

    This madness can only be the work of...the Gruzzles. In your last tangle with the mean ol' Gruzzles, you stopped them from stealing all the words from our books (in Word Rescue). This time the Gruzzles are taking all the numbers and it's up to you to get them back.

    Math Rescue is for ages 6 and up, and allows for a variety of options and skill levels. One of the options allows you to select the type of problems, either addition, subtraction, multiplication, division, or mixed. Another of the options, picks if you want word problems included.
