When our buddy awesome parody video, but it’s so much more: “Abobo’s Big Adventure” is a real game in development. SHUT. DOWN. EVERYTHING. The flash game is going to be free to play online soon (they already showed off the arcade cabinet version seen to the right at San Diego Comic Con this summer).
Roger Barr of I-Mockery started developing the game back in 2002. Along with friends Nick and Luis, he’s built a game that takes Abobo from Double Dragon on a punchtastic journey through the classic NES games of our childhoods. Here comes the plot:
Abobo’s son 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. Not only does Abobo have to fight through these classic games, but he has to adapt to their varying gameplay styles. Gameplay ranges from beatemup, to underwater platformer, to side-scroller, to top-down dungeon crawler, wrestling, run-and-gun, boxing, and MOAR! Oh, and did we mention BOSSES?! Mini-bosses, medium bosses, large bosses, and ultra-huge multi-stage bosses will assault you at every step of your journey. Abobo’s path is a long and hard one, he’ll encounter more enemies than any single character has ever had to fight, but this is Abobo we’re talking about here. He has the heart of a lion… probably because he actually punched a lion and ate its heart! Abobo will stop at nothing to save his beloved son, Aboboy. Are you ready to unleash his rage into this violent world of pixelated foes? You better be. If you’re not, Abobo may pummel you too.
We’ve always been ready to unleash Abobo’s rage. So much so that we’ve already sent a couple old-timey circus strongmen wearing blue capri pants over to Wikipedia headquarters to have a word with Jimmy Wales about the Abobo page being about a city with 1.5 million people living in it, as if that matters.
SHUT UP AND TAKE MY MONEY.
