Try your hand at this totally unrealistic spin on a real-world crisis.

The Deepwater Horizon oil spill (the one BP is blamed for) continues to dominate worldwide headlines. Here’s your chance to try out Crisis in the Gulf, an Xbox game that sees you placing specialized submarines to destroy blobs of oil as they try to reach the surface.

Crisis in the Gulf is simply a tower defense game. Ships that shoot high-caliber rounds, torpedoes, and even lasers are at your disposal. Can you stem the tide of the leak, even at the most difficult “Gulf Oil Crisis” level? Find out for the low price of $1 or 80 Microsoft points.
