The Stretchers is a humorous, logical and arcade game in which players take on the role of paramedics. Tarsier Studios is responsible for the production, while Nintendo is responsible for the release.
The Stretchers takes place in a world where people are "stunned" by a villain known as Captain Brains. The task of the players is to transport the sick to the hospital.
While playing The Stretchers, the player takes on the role of medical rescuers and travels around the open world to perform rescue operations. Each mission of this type is based on taking all the patients from a specific location. Doing so requires solving a variety of logical puzzles.
When driving an ambulance, you can jump on the ramps set up all over the world and destroy your surroundings. During the transport of patients to the hospital, each action of this type adds points to the player's account, which translates into the final result of the mission.
In The Stretchers you can play alone or in a two-person cooperation.
Physics in The Stretchers is based on ragdoll technology, which translates into unnatural movements of the characters. The vehicle driven by the player is capable of performing a variety of acrobatic tasks.
