If you've played the tablet version of Emergency then you already know what you're getting yourself into with this slightly shrunken version. If you haven't, then the long of short of it is that calamities happen and it's up to you to put them right.
Playing the role of some sort of super emergency service comptroller, you're essentially fighting real-time battles against fires, car crashes, terrorist attacks, and potential nuclear catastrophes. Your weapons are bandages and hoses, hazmat suits, and tow trucks.
Attack that crashed plane
Each level sees you sorting out one disaster or another, and you're given a set number of emergency workers to do it with. These range from firemen, who can fight fires with hoses or extinguishers, to stretcher bearers who carry the wounded away from ground zero.
There's fun to be had here, but Emergency Mobile just doesn't put you in enough jeopardy to become truly addictive
