Ozzy Osbourne has launched a new computer game called Legend of Ozzy.

In the game, you play as a 2-D, winged Ozzy avatar, as you try to collect coins, health and drops of blood while avoiding obstacles such as wolves, monsters and demons, all while music for the Prince of Darkness’ new album Ordinary Man plays in the background.

You can play Legend of Ozzy now via LegendofOzzy.com/Game.

In related news, the title track from Ordinary Man, which features Elton John, has given the Rocketman a new Billboard record.

The track has now debuted on Billboard’s Mainstream Rock Songs chart which, according to the publication, is the first time Sir Elton has appeared on that ranking in over 27 years.

He last notched an entry on Mainstream Rock Songs all the way back in September 1992, thanks “Runaway Train,” a collaboration with Eric Clapton.

That gap is the longest any artist has gone in between appearing on the Mainstream Rock Songs chart. Elton breaks the record previously held by Queen guitarist Brian May

May was absent from the chart for nearly 26 years between his 1993 solo song “Driven by You,” and his guest appearance on Five Finger Death Punch‘s cover of Kenny Wayne Shepherd Band‘s “Blue on Black” in 2019.

Ordinary Man the album, Ozzy’s first solo effort in 10 years, is out now.
