Could YOU Rescue 33 Miners Trapped Underground?

The rescue of 33 Chilean miners trapped underground for weeks has made for great TV, but how does it shape up as a video game?

Not so great. Chilean design firm Root33 came up with this Flash game recreating the rescue, and what it lacks in production values and raw thrills, it makes up for in... realism?

I mean, somebody had to crank that machine, right? Or at least start it up? May as well be you.

Bonus: If you speak Spanish, you'll get biographical information on each of the miners as you drag them up. And if you don't speak Spanish, well... pretend it's Gears of War 2 and you'll be fine.

    I love the image it gives you as a reward for finishing. Don't worry, I won't spoil it for you!
