This Tuesday, January 11th 2022 marks the 10 year anniversary of the release of Abobo's Big Adventure!


ABA was made by three incredibly smart, hilarious, good looking, and outrageously buff guys who met on Newgrounds: @mockery, @poxpower, and @bomtoons. Their efforts brought to life and gave a background and history to one of the most overlooked and underrated NES characters... ABOBO! (@abobo)


We want to celebrate the biggest, most outrageous, tribute to the Nintendo Entertainment System in history with a few things:


(1) Abobo's Big Adventure developer livestream playthrough and commentary! Mockey, Pox, and BoM will be getting together for the FIRST TIME EVER to play through ABA and talk about the development, history, process, and aftermath behind the game. We'd love to have you tune in live this Tuesday, Jan 11th at 5pm PST to ask us live questions and overall get a big party going as we wax doubly nostalgic about the NES and our tribute to it. This stream is made possible by the generous support of @Noodle and his YouTube channel 2 Left Thumbs.


(2) We are also celebrating by kicking off an Abobo art contest with cash (and other) prizes here on Newgrounds! The theme of the contest is "Memorable Moments From Abobo's Big Adventure."


The Contest:

  • Create an artwork depicting/illustrating a memorable moment from Abobo's Big Adventure
  • Submit your work to the Art Portal with the tag: Abobo10 by Friday February 11th 2022
  • (We recommend also tagging your post with abobo and abobosbigadventure, for your art's long-term discoverability)
  • (Optional) Tweet your artwork to Nick, Rog, or Pox and let them know what the game means to you. It couldn't hurt to butter up the judges by spreading some joy on their timeline!

 

Other rules:

  • Only one entry per person
  • Submissions after the deadline will NOT be counted


PRIZES:

Rog, Pox, and BoM will work together to judge our favorite entries.


  • 1st - $125 and a huge collector's Domo Kun stuffed animal (donated by @Pox)
  • 2nd - $100 (Thanks @Noodle)
  • 3rd - $75
  • 4th - $50


The top 3 winners will also receive an "Abobo Coin" (an ultra-rare collector's item from the times we exhibited the game at Comic Con - I only have 3 left). [Add-on prizes pictured in the comments]


If anyone else wants to donate to the prize pool, please PM @BoMToons with details and I'll update the above prize numbers and/or expand the winner range (and credit you).


Useful info:

  • We will announce the winners through the BBS, as well as on Twitter on Tuesday, February 15th, 2022.


Any questions?

Please let us know! We look forward to seeing which moments you'll pull out of the zany, random, fever dream that is Abobo's Big Adventure!


Here are pics of the (non-cash) prizes!

Abobo should be on the play store but with slightly changed assets and way more ads.


Interesting :)


Now this is a contest that I got to be apart of! Came out of the NG Rumble Reveal Contest, so having a Abobo art contest is something to behold!


Also, very glad to have played your game all those years ago. I don't know if you remember, but I was a guy who struggled against Amazon and couldn't beat him. When you gave me a very depth description of how to control and use moves (which I found very helpful), but I referred to Balloon Fight. Didn't think how dumb I was as a kid. And that was 10 years ago!


But anyways, so happy to see that the 10th Anniversary of Abobo is happening! Hard to believe that it's been so long!


Goodluck go everybody on the contest, definitely going to that contest.


Also... you guys were the reason I started playing the original Punch-Out on NES. Never played it but on Abobo's Big Adventure. So thank you much for making my childhood all the more memorable!

Now these are the tokens I can get behind!

You can submit it, of course! (you just can't win the prizes listed)

I never finished it. And now that Flash is gone I never will, not even on Newgrounds Player. . .

It works with Ruffle. I played through the whole thing recently. Try it out!

I like to know before I get started. Since it says one Entry per person. Would you disqualify multiple images in one submission?


I did a Rumble Reveal art with my character and he had two images together separately made.


With regards to the memorable moment, does it have to be one specific moment of a level?


Hope to hear back from you!

If you're presenting multiple "frames" in one art piece, that's fine... I'll let you decide how you want to break up your "submission" - as long as it all fits in one Art Portal entry, go crazy!

That was fast, anyway is it only available on Newgrounds? Because whenever I try that with content that’s programmed to launch NGFP then when it launches then it says I have to have working flash for it to work, which it obviously doesn’t, so if you could tell me how to make Ruffle work with NGFP that would be great.

Nope, no specifics other than what's in the description. If you wanted to blend together stuff like the art on the side of our Abobo arcade cabinet, or t-shirt, that's fine!
