Abobo’s Big Adventure! Pays homage to the NES in all it’s Glory!

If you owned an NES back in the day or played the ROMs I’m sure you’ve played Dou­ble Drag­on and if you played Dou­ble Drag­on then you should know  Abobo… Now He’s on a quest to save his son “Aboboy” and must trav­el through some of the greast­est NES clas­sics in the know uni­verse in order to res­cue him!
Here’s the his­to­ry behind Abobo’s Big Adven­ture and the team behind it:
Abobo’s Big Adven­ture is a par­o­dy game which pays trib­ute to the 8‑bit glo­ry days of the Nin­ten­do Enter­tain­ment Sys­tem (NES). 
The devel­op­ment of the game began way back in 2002 when Roger Barr set out to have Abobo fight his way through a vari­ety of clas­sic NES games in search of his lost son, Aboboy. Roger teamed up with a pro­gram­mer who went by the name “Bane” at the time and they start­ed putting the first lev­els togeth­er. Unfor­tu­nate­ly, the Abobo game kept get­ting side­tracked due to each of them work­ing on oth­er game projects at the same time (includ­ing Domo-Kun’s Angry Smash­fest). 
The Abobo project stayed on the back­burn­er for years, but Roger always hoped to return to it even­tu­al­ly. He was lucky enough to meet Nick and Luis who both shared a love for clas­sic 8‑bit games and stuff­ing games full of ridicu­lous humor. After work­ing on some oth­er games like “Trick or Treat Adven­ture Quest” togeth­er, the three of them start­ed to recre­ate the orig­i­nal Abobo game from scratch in 2006. Nick worked up a whole new game sys­tem, Pox recre­at­ed the exist­ing graph­ics and Roger devel­oped a big sto­ry for Abobo to real­ly dive into… fists first. It was a daunt­ing project, but like all labors of love, it’s some­thing that sim­ply had to be done. 
The trio have been work­ing on this game for ages with one sim­ple goal: make Abobo’s Big Adven­ture the *ulti­mate* trib­ute to the Nin­ten­do Enter­tain­ment Sys­tem. This is the game that any kid who grew up on the NES always dreamed of play­ing and it goes beyond any­thing the sys­tem ever could’ve been capa­ble of. 
For those of you won­der­ing if the game will be for sale, the answer is NO. Abobo’s Big Adven­ture is sim­ply a labor of love and will be avail­able to play for free on the web. The game real­ly push­es the lim­its of what Flash is capa­ble of and you will soon have con­trol of the most unap­pre­ci­at­ed, bru­tal, rage-fueled char­ac­ter in the entire pix­e­lat­ed uni­verse in your hands.
