When you hear about humans engaging in animal cruelty, don't you just want to punch them in the face?

Now, you (virtually) can!

In PETA's new video game, 'Cage Fight: Knock Out Animal Abuse,' players can choose to be one of three mixed martial arts fighters -- Aaron Simpson, Georgi Karakhanyan, or Jake Shields, who are all real-life vegetarians -- and beat down organizations that kill millions of animals every year.

Try it out, here:

"Cage Fight doesn't just show you how animals suffer in laboratories — it gives you the chance to combat cruel animal experimenters, both in the game and in real life," Joel Bartlett, PETA's director of marketing innovations, said in a press release. "While you're pummeling sadistic experimenters with MMA fighters' fists in the game, you can use PETA's website to fire off protest letters to real-world institutions that cage, poison, and kill animals."

In addition, to giving animal lovers the opportunity for some satisfying retribution, the game's three levels are designed to raise awareness about university experimentation, military trauma training, and pharmaceutical testing, according to the release.

Earlier this year, Greenpeace launched the 'Shark vs. Mermaid Death Squad' web game to help raise awareness about sustainable fishing practice. Play -- and get educated -- here.
