"Narcos" is one of the hit TV series on Netflix this year and while Season 2 is still a long wait, Netflix has developed a fun game to keep fans engaged.

One of Netflix engineers has developed a video game that fans can play on computer. While it is nothing big for PlayStation or Xbox, it can keep the player entertained for a couple of minutes of downtime. The player is tasked to smuggle cocaine in Miami, and along the way, collect silver and lead. Careful with the bombs from roaming helicopters, or the game is over.

Netflix announced on Twitter, "Yes, one of our engineers made a @NarcosNetflix video game. Press any key to get plata or plomo."

"Narcos" tells the story of one of the most notorious cocaine traffickers in history, Pablo Escobar, and the law enforcements' efforts to fight the drug cartels in 1980s. It follows two U.S. CIA agents Javier Peña (Pedro Pascal) and Steve Murphy (Boyd Holbrook) who are obsessed in hunting Escobar. They were sent to Colombia to capture and ultimately kill the kingpin.

In Season 1's finale, Escobar escaped into the woods and Murphy promised to see him dead. Leah Thomas of Bustle predicts that Season 2 will be about the manhunt and Escobar's growing worries that he'll be killed in the U.S. soil, one thing that he doesn't want to happen. As to how long the story could stretch in the next season depends on how many seasons Netflix would have for "Narcos." Escobar escaped the armed prison again in 1992, one of his may big prison breaks, according to Bustle. Escobar died in 1993 in a police shootout, so eventually the story is going to end.

According to reports, "Narcos" Season 2 is anticipated to be released sometime in August 2016.
