(CNN) -- A computer-game parody of the much-talked-about WikiLeaks saga has made a splash online.
In the online game, players assume the role of WikiLeaks founder and outsized personality Julian Assange hiding behind President Obama's desk in the Oval Office.
Using their mouse, players must manipulate the Assange character to smuggle secret documents from Obama's laptop onto a USB drive as the president dozes off. Those who fail are treated to a juicy presidential sound bite and a mock story planted in the newspaper.
"Just like governmental attempts to quash WikiLeaks, the game is harder than it looks," wrote Alexia Tsotsis on the tech-news blog TechCrunch. "I've played it five times and I still haven't won."
Game developers have been quick in recent years to capitalize on the popularity of prominent news events.
