Play for Ukraine: this browser game helps to block Russian military online resources
Ukrainian tech specialists have created an online browser game to help Ukraine fight Russian aggression. The game was created so that each “move” of a player brings Russian websites closer to being blocked. The legitimacy of the game has been verified by the Cyber Police, as reported by representatives of the agency to AIN.Capital.
About the game
This is an analog of the famous 2048 game — a numerical puzzle, which requires only a basic knowledge of arithmetic. Thanks to the simple mechanics, the game is an easy way to help and is available even for teenagers and anyone who does not have special skills to combat Russian aggression.
How it works
One player can send about 20,000 requests in one hour of play to block sites serving the Russian army. The exact list of these sites has not been disclosed for security reasons.
“Our main goal is websites that serve the Russian army. We do not want to tell the enemy about our specific goals, so the list of sites is not published. We are also working on tasks from the IT ARMY of Ukraine, – the authors of the game say.
We don’t do any harm to your browser. We just rely on a steady torrent of automated traffic to knock a target websites offline.”
What do I need to participate?
- Use VPN if you play from Ukrainian. For players from other countries, VPN is optional, not required.
- Just open playforukraine.life and let it be open on your devices, it will flood the websites and pose a huge load on their infrastructure.
- The number of attacks is much higher when you use the desktop. The more moves – the lower the Russian army falls.
