this year’s controversial action game about a school bully Bully celebrates its tenth anniversary, and in honor of the anniversary, Rockstar has decided to give Jimmy Hopkins a new life on mobile devices.
the Game was released on Android yesterday, and to smartphones and tablets on iOS today she gets during the day. However, in the Russian app stores Bully yet available — when you click on the link Google Play will tell you that your device is incompatible with the game.
UPD: Bully Anniversary Edition finally appeared in Google Play (but not compatible with all devices) and iTunes.
the Original Bully came out in 2006 on the PlayStation 2, but the 10th Anniversary Edition contains a slightly modified port of Bully: Scholarship Edition, released in 2008 on Xbox 360 and Wii, which had improved graphics, fixed sound problems and added a lot of extra content.
in addition, mobile edition added multiplayer in the form of a so-called Friend Challenges.
At the time the game was in the center of the scandal as the authorities and overly worried parents demanded to ban the game, which, in their opinion, promoted and glorified the school bullying. In fact, the Bully is not really about that, and in its center lies a much more peaceful and socially acceptable message about uniting different groups toward a common goal.
