PETA is showing a vigilante streak, calling on fighters to dispense justice. The animal rights group has released a free online game that allows players to run amok through a variety of settings where animals are being abused, dispatching cruel scientists and evil military personnel along the way.

The avatars that players control to get the job done? Why, none other than a trio of vegetarian MMA stars. After all, who better to handle a job like this than men who fight for a living and carry a fondness for animals?

The game can be accessed via MMA Underground.

Players can select one of Aaron Simpson, Georgi Karakhanyan or Jake Shields to progress through the game, defeating foes and freeing animals being prepared for experimentation. 

After the successful completion of each level, the player receives a reward. For beating the game using Jake Shields, you get an interview with Shields, a desktop background and a couple of informative videos.

I don't know whether the rewards vary based on which character you select.

The final reward a triumphant player receives is having "Cheerleader Arianny" express her gratitude for your efforts, a gratitude that Cheerleader Arianny's live counterpart may just share.

"The PETA video game is an absolutely incredible, innovative, unique way to reach people that might not be aware of the cruelty that these animals endure," says Celeste. "Gamers that probably wouldn't go to the PETA website are now becoming aware of things that are happening every day."

The game is reminiscent of a mid 90s arcade, so if you are in the mood for that, give it a whirl.
