Dying to kick COVID-19’s ass? Well, one Maltese IT advisor is hosting a game where you can give the virus a virtual beat down and stop it from spreading in a hospital.
Fight Virus, released this week, is an HTML5 game where you have to stop the spread of the virus by clicking on contaminated areas in the hopes that doctors and nurses can speed up patient recovery.
“This whole exercise was to raise awareness within our own community,” Clayton Axisa told Lovin Malta. “I added a reference to Malta’s Stay Safe section, added some cosmetic alterations, and hosted it on a server to help spread the important message that, if we’re not too careful, Malta’s numbers can increase again.”
“I also wanted to show that everyone has an important role to keep the numbers low,” Clayton added.
“At the moment, the number of global COVID-19 cases are slowly rising. As we go back towards measures that limit the spread, I decided to start working on Fight Virus to help raise awareness about the current situation.”
The game is free to play on laptop, mobile and tablet – making it the perfect quarantine minigame.
