Ready for the most incongruous mobile game since Antz Racing hit the Game Boy Color? The latest release from Big Blue Bubble is a fairly standard entry in the tower defense genre, inexplicably licensed from the 10-year-old raunchy comedy movie Old School. Yes, really. Old School Defense tasks the player with defending the frat house from party crashers, including cops, jocks, nerds, and hippies. You use the various pledges from the movie as defense turrets, leveling them up as the round progresses.

Big Blue Bubble has become notable for solid games like Burn The Rope, but given the somewhat limited appeal of this particular title, they went to AppBackr (it's exactly what it sounds like: Kickstarter for mobile apps) to garner support. Enough people donated to make the game a reality, and now you can pick it up in the Play Store for just a buck. With 30 levels and pledges shooting movie-accurate weapons (like a bikini-clad girl slinging mud from her inflatable pool) it should please even casual fans.

This is going to make that one guy with the "You're my boy, Blue!" bumper sticker incredibly happy, and it looks like a pretty solid tower defense game to boot.

    Why didn't they base it on Blue Mountain State? More current, and surely more fodder for silly weapons!

      I hadn't thought about that until you mentioned it, and I instantly realized how much more likely I'd be to buy that game :)

      Seriously though, Old School had a worldwide release and grossed $87 million. BMS barely made it 3 seasons...On Spike. The main cast of Old School (despite half of them being awful actors) could make a call and be cast in 3 movies within the week, but the entire cast of BMS still has to read for every part they go for. Hate to say it, but looking at this on paper, it would be an easy decision. Besides, I'd bet Dreamworks is happy to sell some franchise rights for Old School, and they are probably preparing for a 10th Anniversary Re-Release.

    I used to hold Android Police in high regards, until the stupid Gameloft World at Arms contest earlier this week. Fine by me if you want to do such mutually-beneficial advertising, but you guys really sold your souls there as not one single bad thing was mentioned about the game. Bet if you did a review the bad:good ratio would be 10:1!

      Sorry, why exactly are you commenting on this post again?

        To vent my inane disappointment with AP. Had I commented in that post, it would have gone unnoticed. You know what I speak of, David aka Mr Smarty Pants.

    There really should be a gameplay video for this. The screenshots don't inspire any confidence at all.
