The success displayed by the Iron Dome anti-missile system, as Operation Pillar of Defense enters its second week, has revived the Internet community’s interest in the security game changer.
An old Flash game named “Iron Dome” has resurfaced and is quickly spreading among gamers.
Originally developed in 2008 — way before the actual Iron Dome’s first successful interception — the game is clearly a bit dated.
“Between January 2001 and December 2008, terrorists in Gaza launched 8,165 rockets and mortar attacks on civilian communities in southern Israel. The only one who can stop it is you!” reads the headline on the game site.
In the game, players are supplied with a limited number of Arrow missiles, which they must use to shoot down a barrage of incoming Qassam rockets from a virtual Gaza.
The game can be played in three different difficulty modes: “Beersheba – Easy,” “Ashdod – Hard,” and “Sderot – Impossible!”
