You thought you had seen everything in rhythm games? You are not ready for what’s coming!

Old School Musical is a retro rhythm game with a unique chiptune soundtrack that will send you back directly to the golden years of the 8-bit era. The main protagonists, Tib and Rob, have been trained to become video game heroes. One fateful day, their game gets corrupted by a bug invasion, thus pushing them to embark on an unlikely journey to find their missing mother and save our childhood games! Your skill, their success: miss notes and Tib and Rob's adventure will fall flat… Literally!

Swing a crowbar, shoot with your spacecraft and defeat an evil chicken army to the beat of chiptune tracks from famous artists such as Dubmood, Zabutom, Hello World, Yponeko and Le Plancton.
