A group of students in Iran unveiled a new project that simulates an attempt to rescue two Iranian nuclear experts kidnapped by the U.S. military. Rescue the Nuke Scientist was created in response to the American-made Assault on Iran, a game that depicts a U.S. attack on an Iranian nuclear facility.

In Rescue the Nuke Scientist, players take control of an Iranian security force carrying out a mission code-named "The Special Operation". Penetrate the U.S. troops' fortified locations, kill U.S. and Israeli troops, and seize their laptops to win the game.

"We tried to promote the idea of defense, sacrifice and martyrdom in this game," one of the students told reporters. "This is our defense against the enemy's cultural onslaught."
