Play the Ozzy Osbourne Video Game
It’s Friday afternoon, which means you’re probably totally checked out of work and yet unable to leave the office for fear of repercussions from your boss. Fret not! Ozzy Osbourne has a way to keep yourself entertained, at least for a little while: Legend of Ozzy, a new old-school video game designed to promote his new album, Ordinary Man (read our review). It’s an endless runner game in which you play as a bat (natch) with an Ozzy head and try to collect coins, health, and drops of blood while avoiding a series of metal-friendly obstacles, like demonic skulls and wolves (possibly of the were variety — it’s unclear). While doing so, you have the option to listen to various songs from Ordinary Man… although you could just as easily opt not to listen to those songs and listen to whatever the hell you like instead. Or, if you’re trying to make sure your boss doesn’t find out, just play silently.
It’s actually pretty challenging. I haven’t managed to stay alive very long myself. Shrug.
You can check out the game here. Have fun procrastinating!
