There is a known Internet Explorer browser bug which makes some keys stick when pressed. We promise the problem is not in our game itself, but it's something you can fix if you search for "Internet Explorer Flash Sticky Keys" OR simply use another browser like Firefox. Again, this is not a problem with the code in our game, so if you're experiencing this problem, try one of the aforementioned solutions. Thanks!

Abobo's Big Adventure is a project that we have been working on for YEARS as a true labor of lovewith one goal in mind: To create the ultimate tribute to the NES! This gargantuan 8-bit parody game is made for the fans by the fans, and now you finally have the chance to control the angriest character in the known universe - Abobo!

The story is simple - Abobo's son (Aboboy) has been kidnapped and now it's up to you to help Abobo fight his way through some of the greatest NES games of all time in order to rescue him. This isn't your average 8-bit parody game either... not only is each level a completely different game in which Abobo takes on the characteristics of the main protagonist, but enemies from a wide variety of *other* games appear on each level too! Imagine you could put every NES game ever made into a blender and that's basically what you're dealing with here in the form of a huge Flash game.

We've added in a ton of custom artwork, cutscenes, new rage moves on each level, huge boss battles, secrets, and a whopping 100 medals for you to unlock! In addition to that, we've created what we consider to be the most satisfying ending of any game you'll ever see. Sure, on classic NES games they often rewarded you with a simple "Congratulations! Game Over." after you spent hours working your way towards the end. That's not the case here - we've worked up one big ending that you'll remember for the rest of your life! Plus, when you beat the game, you'll unlock even more goodies to play with!

You'll also be happy to learn that we've created a convenient Level Select screen which automatically unlocks levels as you beat them. You don't have to beat the game in one sitting... you can always come back and use the Level Select to pick up right where you left off. You can also use it to replay any level if you need to try to unlock additional medals that you missed out on during your first play-through.

Last but not least, if you enjoy this massive game project of ours, please consider making a donation to our indie cause. We've put a lot of blood, sweat, and tears into this game (mainly because Abobo kept punching us throughout its development), so your donations would be greatly appreciated and will go towards our creating future games and/or paying our hospital bills from Abobo's constant beatings. PLUS - as a token of our appreciation, anybody who makes a donation will also receive a free copy of our 100% original new mini-game, Aboboy's Small Adventure!

In closing, we'd like to thank all of our friends, families, and Newgrounds for their unwavering support over the years as we've continued to work on this huge project. It really meant the world and helped us make Abobo's Big Adventure something truly special. It's hard to imagine that this project started out all the way back in 2002... Abobo sure has come a long way with his angry fists. Thanks for playing our game and making this 8-bit dream come true.

*WARNING - Some Spoilers Ahead*

What can I say that others have not said? This looks astounding, guys - it's clear you put a lot of effort into it. I can only imagine how much of a nightmare it must have been, coding each separate level and creating custom sprites and such. The end result is a beautiful tribute to the NES.

Gameplay is suited to each title as it was back on the NES - to critique each one would be time-consuming and rather pointless. On the whole it was very good, sometimes improving on the old titles a little! No game is flawless, however... not even a compilation of excellent games such as this one. The issues with this one do not lie in the gameplay, controls, the music, the art... No, all of that is great and they work just as I expected them to.

The few complaints I have are (for lack of a better word) "technicalities". I know it took a long time to make this, so don't fret! The issues are real minor. For starters, I know it might detract from the overall "feel" of this tribute a little, but it would be nice if you added an option in the Pause Menu to return to the Main Menu. The Refresh button works but sitting through the opening adverts and such is a bit annoying.

Also, for the slow people out there who need time to figure things out (i.e., me), it would be most appreciated if you let us examine the controls at our leisure on the Pro Wrestling and Punch-Out levels, and let us skip them when we choose. They went by on their own before I had memorized them! I managed Punch-Out fine since I was familiar with the game, but I had never played Pro Wrestling and I had to resort to lame punching tactics to win since that's all I could figure out how to do reliably.

The one other gripe I have is the Level Select screen. This one is REALLY small; after all, I love the tribute to Mega Man and the appropriate level names. It's very nicely done! The only minor problem is that some levels are linked, like Balloon Fight/Pro Wrestling and the two Contra stages - to play one you have to beat the other first, so the whole "choose what level you want to play" thing is kind of negated. I can understand if you choose not to alter it, though, since as it stands right now the Mega Man menu looks really cool, and eight levels fit on it perfectly.

All those text boxes and it starts to look like my rating is a mistake! But I assure you, everything else is beautifully done. The lack of comment on it is because I am speechless; nothing really needs to be said about how great it all is, being able to revisit the past in such a manner! And the medals are numerous enough that I'm still gonna be at this for a while... And, of course, the fact that this was FREE and not store-bought makes it all the sweeter. Knowing that, I can't be too hard on it... especially since it's a wonder to behold. Kudos to all of you!

Abobo responds:

Glad you enjoyed the game! To address some of your suggestions:

1) While we can't add a reset button from within the game at this point, you CAN skip all of that intro stuff after refreshing the browser. Just hit the "A" button and it'll instantly take you to the title screen without having to sit through the logos/intro stuff.

2) We'll look into possibly allowing people to examine the controls before Pro Wrestling & Punch-Out before the matches begin.

3) We're definitely not changing the Level Select screen for obvious reasons, but you actually can skip the Balloon Fight level and go straight to the Pro Wrestling match if you press Pause when it starts and then hit the "1" key.

Hope this helps and thanks for the nice review!

BIT games arent cool for me anymore.

Very boring.
only button mashing
But I realized it had more than just button mashing fighting
and that is kinda fun.
But the placement of the sound effects in the cutscenes are terrible
and I am aware you arent trying to make a 100% authentic NES game
but there shouldnt be a use for the mouse
and there shouldnt be SNES references
Im sorry you worked so hard on this but I found it very boring and cliche.
I guess it was neat to see the cameos through

Abobo responds:

Very weird review:
"Only button mashing" ---> "It had more than just button mashing" ??? ok which one is it?
"Placement of sfx in cutscenes are terrible" how is that, would you rather have the sounds NOT timed to the action?
"Shouldn't be use for the mouse" - None of the games require the mouse and none of the menus require the mouse
Overall I consider this a jealous troll review.
Call em as I see em.

Fantastic Game

But I have only one complaint. Don't worry, it isn't anything major... But when you punch off Little Mac's head, and it goes flying through the games. When it got the Castlevania 2, you should have had the head stop mid flight as it transitioned to night time, THEN continued going once the transition was finished. Apart from that though, everything else was perfect.

Ha ha, that is an excellent idea! Wish we'd thought of that!
