In Rescue Wings, the player controls a fire-fighting dog as he flies a plane to put out forest fires. The player has to fly the plane and also load water bombs by diving into lakes. Each level has three stars for the player to collect by putting out all the fires. Once the player earns all three stars, a new level unlocks. When he or she has completed all levels in an area, the medal round of each level unlocks, as well as a treasure chest and the adventure mode. In the adventure mode, the player unlocks other areas and levels. There is also a competitive mode, daily missions, and the chance to buy new airplanes.

Rescue Wings helps kids practice and improve the following skills:
Getting started and then maintaining attention and effort to tasks.
Since this game uses airplanes as its vehicle of choice, the player faces obstacles from all sides, as well as the possibility for flying errors. They also have specific targets (in the form of fires) that they have to hit precisely. This means that they need to ignore internal and external distractions and stay focused on their airplane and the environment around them. If they don’t maintain this focus, they will mess up and either fail to put out a fire or crash and fail the level completely.
Managing our actions, feelings, and behaviors.
The controls in the game are sensitive; they react easily to the player changing directions. This means that the player needs to exercise self-control to be successful at this game. If they don’t control their impulses, they can easily fly themselves straight into the ground or completely miss the fires with their water bombs. If they mess up enough times, they will also face anger and frustration. If the player doesn’t control that anger and frustration, they will end up being more impulsive and crash more often. Self-control is the only way to keep the controls steady and even to get all the way through the level.
