A student group has introduced a computer game to encourage the Iranian youth to support the country's peaceful nuclear activities.
The game called Special Operation 85, designed by the Union of Iran's Students Islamic Associations, follows two Iranian nuclear scientists who are kidnapped and jailed by the United States while on a pilgrimage to southern Iraq.
The hero of the game - an Iranian special agent - not only is to save the Iranians but catch an Israeli spy who transfers classified nuclear information to the West.
The video game was described by its creators as a response to a US-based company's Assault on Iran game, which depicts an American attack on an Iranian nuclear facility. ``This is our defense against the enemy's cultural onslaught,'' Mohammad Taqi Fakhrian, the secretary general of the union told reporters Monday.
"We chose computer games as the most popular appliance currently among kids to transfer (ideological) values such as sacrifice and martyrdom to our pupils while focusing on the nuclear issue," said Fakhrian.
He added that the game's aim was to demonstrate the defense of honor and dignity as well as to counter Western computer games aimed at weakening Iran.
