Mumbai: Games2win.com (G2W), released Gunning for Gold – a game that allows users to take on the avatar of Indian sports’ most recent blue-eyed boy – Abhinav Bindra and ‘virtually’ earn their own gold medal for the country.
Players get to represent India as a shooter and are up against finalists Qinan, Hakkinen. Players must use their mouse to aim and shoot their way through ten rounds to reach top spot – much like the real version of the 10m Air Rifle Event. The faster you hit that bull’s eye, the better your score. The game has been realistically built keeping in mind the real life competition that happened in the Olympics. In addition, there is an introduction to Air Rifle shooting for those who want to know more about the game.
Games2win founder and CEO Alok Kejriwal said, "Gunning for Gold is G2W’s tribute to Abhinav Bindra. With his stellar performance, more and more Indians are waking up to our fantastic potential in sports apart from Cricket and are following other sporting events too. This almost real game makes sure that players understand what it takes to win a gold medal and the effort and dedication required to win. We hope we can inspire many more Abhinav’s to take up the real game after playing this electronic version."
