HAVANA (AP) — It's the latest challenge for computer gamers, in Cuba at least:

Fight your way through mangrove swamps shoulder-to-shoulder with bearded guerrillas clad in the olive green of Fidel Castro and Ernesto "Che" Guevara. Your mission: Topple 1950s dictator Fulgencio Batista.

Cuban programmers have unveiled a brand new 3-D shoot-'em-up video game that puts a distinctly Cuban twist on gaming, letting players recreate decisive clashes from the 1959 revolution and giving youngsters a taste of the uprising in which many of their grandparents fought.

The government-run Computing Club for "Gesta Final" to be the first commercial Cuban-produced game selling in local currency. It's expected to be released soon. There are no plans to market it overseas.
