Game Play

Old School is a classic tower-defense game. Players protect the frat house and stock of booze hidden inside. The hero’s task is to defend the frat, catch uninvited guests and make sure the bottle count doesn’t reach zero.

Party crashers, cops, and squatters spawn throughout campus and head towards the house. If they get in, they steal booze and attempt to escape. If the alcohol supply is zero, it’s game over.

Players' cache of defense weaponry is made of party goers and characters from the movie, such as Spanish shooting beer-pong balls. There’s resource-generating stations along the path such as wet t-shirt contests, bars and keg stands. The stations will spit out coins to buy or upgrade defenses.

What Will The Money Be Used For?

Old School will launch in Late Fall 2012. Funds raised on appbackr are for the game's development and launch on the App Store and in Google Play.

Welcome to appbackr, a crowdfunding marketplace for mobile apps!

appbackr is the first crowdfunding marketplace for mobile apps. Developers connect with 'backrs' to help fund, market, and distribute their apps.

Backrs make a profit as the app sells in retail app stores. appbackr allows anyone to take part in the new app economy...and make some $$$.

Some apps are finished and some are still being developed. Backing an app early gives you the opportunity to make a higher return.

Creating an app is hard work. Developers work tirelessly to build, perfect, and promote their apps in a very competitive market. appbackr gives them a place to find like-minded people to help support them in their journey.

We're glad you're here...welcome to appbackr!

Got it?...Thanks!
