Refighting Cuban revolution

Cuba Revolution game“Fight your way through mangrove swamps shoulder-to-shoulder with bearded guerrillas clad in the olive green of Fidel Castro and Ernesto ‘Che’ Guevara.

“Your mission: Topple 1950s Cuban dictator Fulgencio Batista.

“Out to foil you are helmeted Batista soldiers and police in mustard-yellow uniforms who pop out from behind trees and fire from trucks and farmhouses. You pick them off with a vintage Colt .45 or Springfield rifle in classic first-person-shooter style. If you’re hit three times, it’s revolution over.”

That’s because,“ Island programmers have unveiled a brand new 3-D shoot-’em-up video game that puts a distinctly Cuban twist on gaming, letting players recreate decisive clashes from the 1959 revolution and giving youngsters a taste of the uprising in which many of their grandparents fought,” says the Associated Press.

Video games have been booming in Latin America in recent years, and programmers from countries like Argentina, Brazil, Chile and Mexico are increasingly getting into the business, Rolando Bozas, an Argentine software expert, is quoted as saying, adding  “though obstacles remain.

‘It’s getting better and better.”

“But there is a ton of piracy.”
