ITS FREAkING ABOBO
awesome game but if you fill your rage bar on the treadmill fighting gavin, theres a bug
Fun beat em' up masterpiece
this is one of the true kick ass 8-bit game to play on newgrounds, everything in abobo's big adventure is awesome, lot of achivements to be unlocked, interesting bosses to fight in each level, wild rage moves to pull off, nice stages to see, well known characters from all the nes games, and a whole lot more. For those that love beat em' up games, you really should try this one out, you won't be disappointed.
every single byte of this game is full of nostalgia, rage, and happiness
this game is not new, is old as world of gaming. while playing this game i was had a feeling of meet a old good buddy.
thank you. for everything.
last boss make me ragequit and cry. but i pass him, anyway.
I laughed, I cried, hell I was even bored
One of those isn't true. This game is unbelievably nostalgic. Its refreshing to see people stay true to the classics instead of doing some lame Call of Duty video or Skyrim garbage. NES was the catalyst of great games and was an amazing system. Arguably, the finest gaming system ever released. Having Abobo be the main character is genius. I'd like to point out my favorite parts.
As a youth, I bought Jaws and, at the time, I thought it was awesome. I loved the movie and would play the game all the time. Of course, some online game reviewers don't like it. But seeing Jaws in the underwater area was great. Well done.
The Zelda level was a nice touch. It had the look and feel of Zelda, but you made it your own. That's truly hard to do. Having Abobo eat the tri-force piece was great.
Now to the game play. I felt as if I had complete control. No wonder this took so long. You even had the balloon fight physics down. The collision detection was excellent. I never felt cheated by bad programming. That's a feat in itself.
The graphics were great. Really brought me back to the NES days. Reminded us all that graphics don't make a great game without saying it.
Sound. I think I speak for everyone when I say you nailed the NES music/sound effects. Perfect.
Now some things that turned this from a great flash game, to a classic. Clearly, you polished the levels, but you added in really obscure gaming jokes (kill the messenger in the Zelda level, punting DK jr, etc.). Basically, things we wanted to do, but couldn't. You covered the Nintendo canon with ease. This is a true gem.
Improvements? These are pretty out there, but I would have liked to see some reference to Mother 1 (NES Earthbound - rare), Mr. Gimmick (one of the best NES games no one knows about), and some reference to NES Championship or the NES glove or Wizard. But these are just 'fanboy' things, I don't want to take away from this game in the slightest.
Congratulations guys, you created something truly special.
You haven't beaten it yet if you're asking for references to the power glove or the "Wizard" movie :-D
