Throw equal parts Grand Theft Auto, nostalgia and a legendary console into a time warp and what do you get? Bully: Anniversary Edition on mobile devices. Rockstar Games has today released its classic Playstation 2 title Bully on Android and iOS in celebration of its 10th birthday.
The game will set you back the princely sum of $6.99 but for fans of Bully that’s a very small price to pay. You can enjoy the entire original game along with all the extras included in the 2008 Scholarship edition of the game. For the mobile release though, Bully has received updated graphics for hi-res displays and features both on-screen gamepad controls.
In case you’re not familiar, Bully is like a high school version of Grand Theft Auto. Featuring the usual colorful cast of characters and situations, Bully sees a 15 year-old prep school misfit named Jimmy make his way through all the fun hi-jinx you would likely remember if you went to a school with a name like Bullworth Academy.
It’s pretty classic stuff, from its dated texture mapping to in-game mechanics you wouldn’t have seen in several years. Bully offers you the chance to “stand up to bullies, get picked on by teachers, beat the jocks at dodge ball, play pranks, win or lose the girl and survive a year in the worst school around.” If you’re looking for a stroll down memory lane, hit the install button below.
