An Android game with Bangladeshis killing Pakistanis is a virtual hit
An Android game 'Heroes of 71: Retaliation', the backdrop of which is the Bangladesh Liberation War, is a bonafide hit.
NEW DELHI: Bangladeshis are having a great time killing Pakistanis - virtually.

That's all thanks to a slick Android game called 'Heroes of 71: Retaliation' - part funded by the Bangladesh government - the backdrop of which is the Bangladesh Liberation War.



This game and its precursor 'Heroes of 71' have been downloaded a little over 40 lakh times with more than 25 lakh of those downloads from out of Bangladesh, the country's The Daily Star newspaper reported last week. It's a bonafide hit.


How could it not be? A classic 'good vs. evil', 'underdog vs. bully' narrative with a massive dose of feel-good patriotism - and the chance to blow up some enemies - okay, Pakistanis - along the way.



video game showcases the odds simply yet stunningly.


Under an inky sky, you see the might of the enemy just in the way they are clothed and armed - they have uniforms, boots, binoculars and guns that look pretty state-of-the-art for 1971. By comparison, the Bangladeshi, or rather, the East Pakistani, freedom fighters are barefoot, have only their bare naked eyes and what almost amount to country weapons. Yet, they pick off the enemy, one by painful one, systematically and methodically, and most of all, patiently.


The game has the obligatory dark-eyed mysterious female guerrilla fighter, or as The Daily Star describes the character Anila, "a mysterious, deadly yet beautiful woman. " The sari-clad Anila is an ace with a gun and frees a group of women held hostage by Pakistanis. All of them then end up in a bloody battle to the finish.


A year ago Portbliss games told TOI they were pretty confident their video game will boost "patriotism among Bengalis". They've been proven right and then some.

Alas! Had they remained Indian, they would be enjoying peacefully in their ancestor's faith philosophies and a united country without the usual Abrahamic hate tendencies.
