Protect Your Home, a home security company, has released an interactive and informative online home security game called "Bad Guy on the Block." Anyone can play the game online at http://www.badguyontheblock.com and unlock achievements that lead to prizes — like home security equipment deals and a $100 VISA card offer. The purpose of the game is to educate players on common home security risks and how to overcome them.

According to FBI data, a home burglary occurs about once every 15 seconds in the United States, and dollar losses per incident average around $2,000. Many people don't think much about home security until they or a neighbor experience a break-in. Effective home security depends on a comprehensive set of practices (such as locking up consistently) and security tools (such as deadbolt locks) to defend against the most common break-in methods.

To play "Bad Guy on the Block," players first choose a character: "Rob," a burglar, or "Harmony," a homeowner. As Rob, players choose methods to break into Harmony's house while she is away. As Harmony, players identify home security vulnerabilities that mirror common vulnerabilities in real homes.

Throughout the game, players can learn more about break-in methods and how to address risk factors in home security. "This new game is an engaging way for people to gain understanding about protecting their homes against intrusion," said Rob Williams, Vice President of Internet Marketing for Protect Your Home."Plus, they can earn real home security deals for their effort."

Protect Your Home hopes to educate homeowners on how to protect their homes from burglars … while having a little fun in the process. Williams continued, "We want to show homeowners what burglars look for in terms of vulnerabilities and how they can identify and correct potential access points in their own homes, with the ultimate goal of increasing home safety and security."

The game can be played at http://www.badguyontheblock.com.
