“Guerrilla War” Video Game – Cuban Version

According to this Mental Floss article, the 80’s video game Guerrilla War was actually a re-creation of the Cuban revolution with names changed for the U.S. market:

“If you lived in other parts of the world, you played Guevara – essentially the same game, except it stars heroes of the Cuban Revolution: Che Guevara as Player 1, and Fidel Castro as Player 2. The game was (loosely) based on real events from the Cuban uprising, and the ‘evil king’ you fight in the game was Fulgencio Batista, the Cuban dictator.”

I can’t remember whether I ever played this specific game or not, but it’s weird to think I may once have taken the role of Fidel Castro.
