Recently, I had played a few Farmville style games on my iPhone. They were depressing me because while I could see that the designers and programmers were trying to make something fun, the games were irrevocably corrupted by the business model of tricking kids into spending real money on virtual nothingness. Games where strategy and dexterity have no value. Where there is never a sense of completion, because they just go on forever. Games that are as relentless and numb as the homeless man who asks you for money 10 minutes after you just gave him a dollar. I was envisioning a future where this is the way that all games work. :(
Abobo restored my faith. This game represents everything that is good and holy about games. Thank you to everyone involved in making this game a reality. It was worth all the time invested. Thanks to NG for creating a community where Abobo can live free and strong. This game is a masterpiece, and most importantly, it is a blast to play. Thank you so much, we love you.
Excellent execution of fun and nostalgia.
Fantastic game. Legitimately fun, with tons of gags that will leave NES vets smiling. I *do* wish that the Pause button was explained in game, and I highly suggest having a "quit" option so that you can go back to the main menu. Often I'm just trying to get an achievement, and once I've done it I have to refresh the page or let myself die.
I saw an aricle about this game in Gameinformer... all I can say is epic.
Awesome game, loved the memories and loled the entire urban champion stage. found a bug though, on the krangby fight, I killed the head portion last, it got stuck there.
Amazing!!! Its like controlling an 8-bit kratos from god of war.
