Old School Musical is ready to rock PC and Nintendo Switch with a mix of nostalgia-fuelled narrative and a mix of melodies. Take two adventurers through a series of adventures in a range of worlds that are drenched in nostalgia and chocked full of chiptunes.
In the end, there really isn’t anything else quite like Old School Musical. It’s a game that’s been several years in the works – and when the outcome is something as unique and special as this, I daresay every moment was worth it. Whether you’re a fan of old school rhythm games or just want a hilarious trip through video game history, Old School Musical is absolutely worth picking up.
Old School Musical does an admiral job of packing 50 chiptune tracks onto a single package. Unfortunately, I can't say I'm a fan of how the game went about implementing them. If it had solely been the Arcade Mode with a lot of the 8-bit homages in the background, that would have been fine. But having to plow through the clumsy Story Mode took some of the joy out of the game for me.
