Get Off My Lawn is a 2014 video game for personal computers and mobile phones. In it, you play as an old man who must defend his lawn from aliens. He does so by shooting them as they walk across the 3D lawn with several columns before they get to his position. For every killed alien, you earn points and orbs. The latter can be spent on upgrades to improve weaponry and abilities.

Not to be confused with the 2009 Adobe Flash game which has you defend the lawn by driving mollets over with a lawnmower.
