->''"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."''
-->-- The developers

'''Abobo's Big Adventure''' is a free to play [[MacromediaFlash Flash]]-based [[WebGames browser game]] made by "Team Bobo" and released to the public on January 11, 2012 after an [[DevelopmentHell extremely long development cycle]]. The game's development started in 2002 as a pet project of Roger Barr a.k.a. [=-RoG-=] of ''I-Mockery'' fame, who wanted to create the ultimate tribute to [[NintendoEntertainmentSystem NES games]]. The early drafts of this project were scrapped because of other commitments, and [=-RoG-=] started anew in 2006 with a new group of developers, who strived to preserve as much as possible the look and feel of NES titles.

The game stars Abobo, the notorious GiantMook of ''VideoGame/DoubleDragon'', in a quest to save his son Aboboy who has been kidnapped by a bunch of goons. He starts in the familiar streets of the game he came from, but eventually finds himself stuck in several classic NES titles such as ''VideoGame/SuperMarioBros1'', ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaI'', ''VideoGame/BalloonFight'', ''VideoGame/{{Contra}}'', ''[[VideoGame/MegaManClassic Mega Man]]'' and many more, smashing and killing everything in sight to find and destroy his son's kidnappers.

''Abobo's Big Adventure'' quickly became popular on ''{{Newgrounds}}'', being voted as Daily Feature and Weekly Users' Choice in a matter of days. If you want to experience it yourself, [[http://www.abobosbigadventure.com/ here's the official site]].

----
!!ABOBO SMASH PUNY TROPES!

* AbnormalAmmo - The gun that shoots VideoGame/{{Lemmings}}.
** Abobo even has an [[AbnormalAmmo Abnormal Weapon]]. During the suiting up montage, which is clearly an ode to ''Rambo: First Blood Part II'', Abobo arms himself with a spatula, a kitchen utensil, instead of a combat knife.
* AffectionateParody - The game is a big, bloody loveletter to Nintendo's 8-bit era.
* AllYourPowersCombined - In the Punch Abobo level, Abobo has the special rage attacks, characteristics, and mannerisms of all the non-Mike Tyson/Mr. Dream opponents in the NES version of ''Punch-Out!!'', except, of course, for Glass Joe. He has Von Kaiser's intro music, Piston Honda's intro music/bandana/eye twitching and Hurricane Rush rage attack, Don Flamenco's intro music/flower dance and Flamenco Punch rage attack, King Hippo's intro music/jaw opening and closing and straight punch rage attack, Great Tiger's turban and disappearing/reappearing five-punch rage attack, Soda Popinski's laugh for whenever he knocks out [[spoiler: Little Mac]], Mr. Sandman's Dreamland Express rage uppercuts, Super Macho Man's [[PecFlex manboob shaking]] and rage spin punches, and of course, Bald Bull's sprite/taunt pose, and the special rage attack he delivers to [[spoiler: Little Mac]], at the very end of the match, where [[spoiler: he bull charges right towards him, and sends his head flying with an uppercut courtesy of the Power Glove.]]
* AscendedGlitch - In the original NES Double Dragon there was the so-called "[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OAesSVDb8ZA&feature=related Elevator Glitch]]". ''Abobo'' has kept it, only this time it gives you an achievement and lets you crash a... um... private party.
* AttackOfTheFiftyFootWhatever - [[spoiler:the hugeass shark, the Old Man in Old Giant form, and notably the gigantic Kirby.]]
* [[spoiler: AllJustADream]] - During the credits, in reference to ''VideoGame/SuperMarioBros2''.
* BackgroundBoss - [[spoiler:A truly enormous Kirby.]]
* {{Badass}} - Abobo, natch.
* BadassMustache - Abobo, of course. There's even a debate as to whether or not he has one. But it appears that he does, if you look carefully at his in-game sprite.
* BaitAndSwitchBoss - In the ''Contrabobo'' stage where the giant alien at the end [[spoiler:is inhaled by a huge-ass {{Kirby}} before it can do anything]].
** You could also consider the ''VideoGame/{{Jaws}}'' battle to be one of those. With the menacing music that starts playing when you fight it, the shark is psyched as the final boss of the level... [[spoiler:but turns out to be just another miniboss when after three hits it's eaten by a shark ten times its size with FrickinLaserBeams attached to its head - the real boss.]]
* BigBad - [[spoiler:[[VideoGame/PunchOut Little Mac.]]]]
* BeamSpam - the [[Film/TheLastStarfighter Death Blossom Rage Move]].
* BloodyHilarious - Nearly a minute into the game, Abobo rips the head off a small boy walking by and [[{{Squick}} eats it to regain his life]]. You can then use [[GrievousHarmWithABody his body as a projectile and get an achievement for it.]] And that's just the beginning.
** Possibly a tribute to another game that started out on Newgrounds, since in the original version of ''VideoGame/AlienHominid'', it was possible to do the same thing to the first character encountered, a small child. That is, eating a child's head, not using it as a projectile.
* BossOnlyLevel - The FinalBoss fight against [[spoiler:[[VideoGame/PunchOut Little Mac.]]]]
* BowChickaWowWow - Literally appears on the screen while Abobo's, er, mating with Annie the mermaid.
* BreakoutMookCharacter - In ''Double Dragon'', Abobo was just a GiantMook who smashed walls and got his ass handed to him by the Lee brothers. Now he does essentially the same things to other NES characters as a protagonist!
* CoupDeGraceCutscene
* CreditsGag - As stated above, the end credits are inspired by the ones from ''VideoGame/SuperMarioBros2''. [[spoiler:The "cast roll" includes totally unrelated pop culture icons such as Skeletor and Inspector Gadget in between the boss characters, followed by Aboboy and Abobo themselves, then pictures of the development team, and finally, the special thanks, before ending with the words "[[Film/TheGoonies Goonies never say die!]]".]] It's charming in its own way.
* CurbStompBattle - Abobo vs. the guy from ''Urban Champion''. [[spoiler:The TropeNamer ''AmericanHistoryX'' is referenced in the ending when Aboboy literally curb-stomps [[WesternAnimation/DuckTales Scrooge McDuck]]]].
* DecoyProtagonist - As a brief joke during the intro: one of the few possible NES characters appears in the open doorway during the beginning of the intro, making it seem that the intro text could be talking about them, but as the screen starts scrolling upwards, they quickly end up being scrolled offscreen and let out a quick "aww!".
* DeathFromAbove - The Rage Move in the Contrabobo level is a bomber plane that torches the screen with a carpet bombing.
* DiscOneFinalBoss - [[spoiler:The Old Man]]
* DishingOutDirt - Abobo's first [[LimitBreak Rage Move]] is a rain of huge stone boulders.
* DoesThisRemindYouOfAnything - The Zelda dungeon has a familiar [[spoiler:phallic]] shape.
* DoingItForTheArt - The game is for free and basically a huge (if twisted) love letter to the NES games and the pop culture of TheEighties. It exists just because [=-RoG-=] wanted it to.
* DoppelgangerAttack - [[spoiler:the Old Man splits into three Old Men wielding swords.]]
* {{Expy}} - [[http://www.i-mockery.com/romhacks/babydodgeball/12a.gif Aboboy]] is based on Rajiv (the captain of Team India) from Technos' ''Super Dodge Ball''. Rajiv was the strongest captain of the strongest team in the game, so it makes perfect sense. Just slightly recolor his skin, replace his team outfit with small blue shorts, leave his pink slippers alone, and voila, Aboboy!
* ExtremeOmnivore - Abobo eats a lot of things that are normally not able to be properly consumed by a regular human being. Namely, the heads of ''VideoGame/RiverCityRansom'' passerbys, a can with god-knows-what in it, Annie's head (if you so choose), loads of enemies in ''Super Mabobo'', and [[spoiler: the freakin' Triforce (!!!)]].
* FaceHeelTurn: [[spoiler: Little Mac.]]
* FakeBoss - In the ''Super Mabobo'' stage where you fight the shark from ''VideoGame/{{Jaws}}'', and after defeating him he gets chomped by a much larger shark with a [[Film/AustinPowers friggin' laser attached to his head]] named Bigdaddy.
* FallenHero: [[spoiler: The true BigBad is [[VideoGame/PunchOut Little Mac,]] who went mad with power after winning the championship.]]
* ForcedLevelGrinding - In the spin-off game ''Aboboy's Small Adventure'', you need to gain levels in order to successfully beat the game in one sitting. When you destroy something or someone with your hugs, you'll collect coins. Collect enough of them, and you'll earn a level as well as a stat point. After completing each wave, you can then use them to increase your strength, your health, your ability to cling to coins and meat, your speed, and your focus. As many as 60 stat points can be earned.
* GaidenGame - ''Aboboy's Small Adventure'', available for those who donated to the developers.
* GameplayRoulette - As every level is based upon a different NES title with its own gameplay and style, it is to be expected.
* GiantSpaceFleaFromNowhere - Most of the enemies and bosses are completely random and often have nothing to do with the stages. [[RuleOfFun All part of the fun, though]].
* GrievousHarmWithABody - The first thing Robobobo, the boss of the Mega Man stage, does is to throw [[spoiler:Dr. Wily]] at Abobo, who splatters on the wall behind him.
** As stated above, you can also throw the bodies of random kids at enemies... once you eat their heads first.
* GroinAttack - Aboboy is kicked in the crotch by a mook and then kidnapped in the opening cutscene of the game.
* HammeredIntoTheGround - [[spoiler: The ending involves Abobo stomping Samus Aran's head into the ground. {{Blood|yHilarious}}ily.]]
* HeadsIWinTailsYouLose - In the first stage, Double Drabobo, Abobo will die if he falls into the hole next to the conveyor belt. However, [[spoiler:after Abobo defeats Shooter Gavin, a forklift with a pile of TNT runs into a pile of TNT. Abobo then fell into the hole because of the explosion,]] but he didn't die and [[spoiler:falls into a room below]], which has a pipe that leads to the next stage.
* HeroicComedicSociopath: Abobo does not care about any bystanders he finds on his way to rescue Aboboy. They will be destroyed as gratuitously as the actual opposition, in BloodyHilarious ways. [[note]] This is all up to the player at certain points in the game.[[/note]]
* HollywoodAcid - In the "Punch Abobo" level, if you lose to [[spoiler: Little Mac]] by decision (there's no way to win by decision, BTW), referee Mario will push the green button on a hanging switch, that will open the floor underneath Abobo, which contains Hydrochloric Acid, reducing him to only his skeleton. Afterwards, [[spoiler: Little Mac]] will then punch Mario into the acid.
* ImAHumanitarian - See BloodyHilarious
* ImpaledWithExtremePrejudice - The first boss gets impaled on a forklift truck. Also, the Amazon.
* ItemGet - Occurs in the Zeldabobo level.
* JokeLevel / BreatherLevel - The level based on ''Urban Champion'' can't be lost no matter what, and our opponent can't even harm Abobo. This can be also a TakeThat to ''Urban Champion'' itself, which is usually considered one of Creator/{{Nintendo}}'s weakest titles.
* KamehameHadoken - the giant laser Rage Move in Megabobo.
* KidHero - Aboboy in ''Aboboy's Small Adventure''.
* KillEmAll - Boy howdy.
* LatexPerfection - After the Zeldabobo stage, Abobo finds his son tied to a chair (hidden in the ''VideoGame/KungFuMaster'' basement, no less); however, after a brief happy moment, it is revealed that Aboboy is really The Amazon in disguise. The two of course look nothing alike.
* LikeFatherLikeSon - Abobo and Aboboy enjoy killing everyone and everything in sight.
* LimitBreak - When Abobo's Rage meter gets filled all the way, he can perform a powerful Super move based on the stage he's in.
* LoadingScreen - While the game is loading, Abobo tries to get a copy of his own game to work on a NES, by blowing on the cartridge and repeatedly pushing the Power button. This gives the impression that we are playing as Abobo [[RecursiveReality playing this game on the NES]], [[spoiler: confirmed when we see Abobo's hands holding the NES controller while inputting the KonamiCode]].
* MadeOfIron - The Amazon, that yellow fish-dude from ''VideoGame/ProWrestling'', is incredibly tough. Not only he is unaffected by any attacks during the Balloon Fight phase, he manages to survive a very violent wrestling match with Abobo, including when he basically nukes the arena with his Rage finishing move. However, the SpikesOfDoom from Mega Man are too much even for him.
** Abobo himself. [[spoiler: During the fight with Little Mac, the right side of his face can be reduced to his bare skull and he'll fight completely unhindered.]]
* ManlyTears - Abobo weeps in the intro where [[spoiler: right off the bat, he doesn't see Aboboy where he normally sees him]], and in between the 4th and 5th levels, [[spoiler: Abobo sees his son, and runs to him with manly tears in slow-motion, only to be tricked, as it turned out to be The Amazon in disguise.]]
* MassivelyMultiplayerCrossover / MegaCrossover
* MermaidProblem - Not a problem for Abobo!
* MultiTakeCut - The CoupDeGraceCutscene for the FinalBoss shows Abobo's uppercut close in at four different angles. Those same four angles are then shown again in quick succession, this time with the punch connecting.
* NintendoHard - Ultimately averted: the game isn't easy, but it is far less frustrating than many of the titles that inspired it, plus it has an autosave feature that lets you continue from the last level reached. Still, some people think it's too hard, and the Balloon Fight/Pro Wrestling level is overall pretty difficult since you die in 2 hits in the first part, dying at the second part forces you to do the first one again and naturally you can't skip to the second part right away from stage select. [[spoiler:You ''can'' skip to the second part by pressing 1 while on the first part, though.]]
* NoSell - The Urban Champion guy above can't even harm Abobo at all.
* NostalgiaLevel - Every level is based on one (or more) popular NES titles, with the original music and all.
* NoticeThis - The pushable blocks in the Zeldabobo dungeon flash every few seconds.
* OffWithHisHead - The final fate of [[spoiler:Little Mac]].
* OhCrap - Can be read on the faces of the NES characters in the ending when they realize that [[spoiler:Abobo and his son are going to murder every single one of them.]]
* OneWingedAngel - [[spoiler:The Old Man]] of the Zeldabobo level goes into two advanced forms during the battle with him, Robobobo turns into a much bigger robot [[{{Terminator2}} made of liquid metal]], while [[spoiler:Little Mac]] of the final stage has a [[spoiler:Big Mac]] form that he goes into upon [[spoiler:getting knocked down twice]].
* OverlyLongFightingAnimation - The Rage Move for the Level 5 boss fight, in which Abobo [[spoiler:summons the Wrestling/UltimateWarrior, "Rowdy" Wrestling/RoddyPiper, Wrestling/TheUndertaker, and Wrestling/HulkHogan to give the Amazon a HumiliationConga before Abobo himself gives him a giant piledriver that destroys the stadium]].
* OverlyLongGag - The first part of the ending consists of [[spoiler:Little Mac's severed head flying by various NES game scenarios, still managing to make things difficult for the various heroes even after his death, culminating with it hitting the flagpole from ''VideoGame/SuperMarioBros1''.]]
* PaletteSwap - Abobo's sprite in ''Punch Abobo'' is clearly a swap of Bald Bull's sprite.
* PetTheDog - If you wait a few seconds when told to [[Franchise/MortalKombat finish off]] the Urban Champ, the game flashes an alternate button input prompt: following those directions allows Abobo to use Johnny Cage's Friendship instead.
* PopGoesTheHuman - When you meet DigDug in the Zeldabobo dungeon, chances are that he'll inflate Abobo with his pump. Some enemies will appear at that moment, and Abobo has to avoid all of them for 10 seconds, or else he'll pop like a balloon and lose an entire life.
* {{Portmanteau}} - Each of the eight mixed up worlds that Abobo must fight his way through, and adapt to, as each level has its own gameplay style, is short for the following: Double Dragon Abobo (Double Drabobo), Super Mario Bros. Abobo (Super Mabobo), Urban Champion Abobo (Urban Chabobo), The Legend of Zelda Abobo (Zeldabobo), Pro Wrestling Abobo (Pro Wrabobo), Mega Man Abobo (Mega Mabobo), Contra Abobo (Contr Abobo), and Punch-Out!! (Punch Abobo).
** The developers of the game dubbed the theme song (which is entirely original) "The Abobo Boogie", or "The Aboboogie" for short.
* [[ThePowerOfHate The Power of Rage]] - It's what fuels his Limit Breaks (possibly a ShoutOut to VideoGame/FinalFantasyVII, due to [[LimitBreak Limit Breaks]] being justified as being powered by such in some sources).
* PunnyName - [[spoiler:Little Mac]]'s beefed-up OneWingedAngel form is called [[spoiler:[[McDonalds Big Mac]]]].
* ReferenceOverdosed - [[http://i395.photobucket.com/albums/pp32/Lord_Feder/ABOBO.png This picture]] is just the tip of the iceberg.
* {{Retraux}} - The official site even has a section that tells players how to connect a NES pad to the computer and play the game with it!
* '''RoaringRampageOfRevenge''' - Seriously, [[PapaWolf don't mess with Abobo's kid]].
* RocksFallEveryoneDies: Abobo's first Rage Move... literally.
* SharedLifeMeter: The game features this when ''VideoGame/{{Kirby}}'' absorbs [[TeenageMutantNinjaTurtles Krang]] and commandeers his giant robot suit. The player then has to attack and destroy the robot suit's head and right arm, along with beating Kirby himself, all of which share a life meter.
* ShootTheMessenger - Abobo can do this literally in the "Zeldabobo" level.
-->'''Mr. Informer''': ''ROT IN HELL ABOBO !!!!''
* ShoutOut - There are simply far too many to be listed in this page. But for starters, the title is a reference to the film, ''Film/PeeWeesBigAdventure'', cause, after all, who was known for having a big adventure in the 1980's? Why, Pee-Wee Herman, of course! No one else but.
** And of course, there's also references about the Power Glove. "It's so bad!"
* SignatureLaugh - Abobo during the Punch Abobo level, and ending.
* SpinAttack - Several Rage Moves, such as spinning to create a huge water funnel or causing a Death Blossom of flying projectiles. The [[spoiler:Old Man clones in second form]] can spin with their sword extended.
* StationaryBoss - Krangby a.k.a. [[spoiler: Kirby inside [[WesternAnimation/TeenageMutantNinjaTurtles1987 Krang]]'s giant humanoid robot]].
* StealthPun - The boss fight in ''Zeldabobo'' is located at the end of the dungeon. [[spoiler: Given the dungeon's [[FreudWasRight phallic appearance]], reaching the end of the dungeon means you just reached a climax, [[ADateWithRosiePalms as in... yeah]].]]
* SuperMovePortraitAttack - Whenever you use the Rage Move. It even changes for each level. Averted in the final level, however.
* TemptingFate - The Amazon boasts that his jetpack will never run out of fuel. *sput* *sput* Uh oh...
* ThereIsNoKillLikeOverkill - Abobo in general is very fond of overkill, but the fate of the unfortunate Amazon takes the cake: [[spoiler:assaulted by four wrestlers one after the other, then slammed from immense height into the floor hard enough to cause a massive explosion, bursting through the floor and getting impaled by a cluster of spikes.]]
* TravelingPipeBulge - Happens whenever Abobo goes through pipes from SuperMarioBros.
* UnstoppableRage - Abobo's base emotion.
* VictoryFakeout - At the end of the first stage, you can get the boss to walk over the conveyor belt and let him fall in the pit to his doom, just like in ''VideoGame/DoubleDragon''. The words "YOU WIN!" appear on screen... however, a second later the boss emerges from the pit with a jetpack, and the fight resumes! This is made just to mess with whoever played Double Dragon, but it should be noted that doing this results in an achievement and is incredibly difficult to do on purpose to begin with as the boss has a gun so you can't easily bait him near the pit, he performs an evasive roll whenever he gets up from knockdown, Abobo can't jump in the first level to get closer to him while he's firing and his dash attacks, which push his enemies back the furthest, require large chunks of his rage meter to perform.
* VideoGameAchievements
* VideoGameCaringPotential[=/=]VideoGameCrueltyPotential: The player can use both with Abobo.
* VillainProtagonist: Abobo, depending on the player.
* YourPrincessIsInAnotherCastle - In reference to the TropeNamer, Toad appears in a secret area within the ''Zeldabobo'' level, to inform Abobo of this. Unfortunately for him, the latter is looking for someone else, so he gets a Bullet Bill in the face for his trouble.
