Thanks for the nomination for best game in the 2008 tank awards! It's an honor to be listed amongst the other candidates!
Take on 3 classic video-game bosses. WART, ABOBO, and THUNDERBIRD. Can you get 3 stars on all 3?

There are a few easter-eggs which can help you if you're struggling to get 3 stars. Some of these bosses will be pretty tough if you've never played the original games before.

This started as a part for a collab over a year ago, but the collab fell apart, so I polished my parts off and made them into a compilation of my own. I could probably code a few of these a lot better now if I started from scratch, but I just hate seeing my hard work go to waste.

UPDATE: Wart freezing bug fixed.

Boss fighting flash. The graphics are based off three classic NES games. Gameplay is similar as well. If like me, you beat them back in the day, then you should have the advantage in this game. I would have liked to see a better ending screen after defeating the entire game.

Such a shame that this game is so smooth yet so frustrating.

First boss seems like invulnerable to anything you throw, until you land it on his head exactly. That's kinda impossible with platforms you need to climb always pushing you down, pipes too. I was able to jump out of bounds too and found this big soapy coin(?), which immediately stuck in a platform. Yeah, I was able to throw it at him and missed. I'm not trying to get it again, because high-jump just stops working on stairs near that platform and I successfully die in the void.

Second boss looks like a demo. Can't charge, can't kick, can't block, can't do tricks, just watch them crawling along and eat you alive, as you can punch one or two and throw a barrel at them, until it just disappears in your hands. And if you say me to use the barrel to my advantage, then why does it just keep turning into nothing? I can't even use the other one. Either way, it's just a barrel throwing game, than a punchout. You can't just beat the ones who fell. Either way that's cheating.

Third boss seems straight impossible. Yes, I figured I need to use spells and stuff, but game doesn't change at all. I can't throw swords up, can't stab up, can't shield up, can't anything up. After some spell it did turn blue and that's it, still no hitboxes to touch, still red flames to avoid, and you're stuck with no mana.


BoMToons responds:

Thunderbird has to be hit with thunder spell first, then you should prob use shield and jump to be able to jump high enough to hit its face. That’s how the source game worked :-)

i remember when i was like, 4 or something and playing this game in a old-ass winxp computer, i miss those times

THIS GAME IS SOO HARD!!!!!!!!!!!! But it's still kind of gun and I was able to beat Abobo. But isn't he black?

BoMToons responds:

I think he's technically orange.

After many years I finally managed to defeat the 3 bosses.
Abobo it was very difficult.

BoMToons responds:

He's a beast! Have you ever played his dedicated game?
