Now Edward Snowden can hunt for information on Americans’ smartphones.

The National Security Agency leaker wanted by the U.S. government has been immortalized — in a digital sense, anyway — as the hero of a mobile game.

In Snowden Run 3D by MTS Freestyle, gamers play the former intelligence worker in three settings: NSA headquarters in Fort Meade, Md.; Hong Kong, where Snowden revealed himself as the source who leaked the intelligence agency’s program collecting phone records on Americans; and the Moscow airport Snowden left Thursday after being granted temporary asylum in Russia.
