Alkottab, an Egyptian games developer has released a Facebook game based on battles between protesters and thugs during the 2011 uprising.
The company describe it as a “tower defense game” that is built around the events of the so-called Battle of the Camel on 2 February 2011, when a peaceful sit-in in Tahrir was attacked by armed thugs riding horses and camels.

The developers say the game will allow players to “have a glimpse of the battle that happened that day and witness how the people stood to defend their freedom.”

Alkottab is a games and animation studio founded by Eslam Almohandes, Omar El-Khafif and Mahmoud Adly Ezzat.

    Hey there just wanted to give you a quick heads up.

    The words in your content seem to be running off the screen in Internet explorer.
    I’m not sure if this is a formatting issue or something to do with browser compatibility but I figured I’d post to let you
    know. The design and style look great though! Hope you get the
    problem resolved soon. Thanks
