As part of its campaign against genetically modified ingredients, restaurant Chipotle has launched a new game modeled after the iconic Space Invaders. Chipotle's game is called "Taste Invaders." In the game, you control a burrito instead of ship, shooting missiles at artificial ingredients such as Sodium Alginate and Polysorbate 80. There are even "Additive Mother Ships" in the form of pizza and hamburgers.

"A galactic battle against artificial ingredients," is the game's tagline. You can play it right now in your browser.

This isn't the first time a restaurant has made its own video game. Earlier this year, KFC released an 8-bit-style game called Colonel Quest, challenging players to complete a series of mini-games based on Colonel Sanders' (totally fake) life. Before that, Denny's partnered with Atari, while Burger King made a number of games, including Sneak King.
