About This Game

Have fun beside the young from the beyond to get back to the future fighting against mythical entities of the Mexican horror culture.

Our character ABO MANDO is abducted by aliens that were kidnapping citizens around the world, from different ages to take DNA samples for their experiments. But when the aliens took him back, they commit a mistake and left him in Mexico in 1802. And now we have to help ABO MANDO to return to his future!

Inspired in old school games with modern elements and classic gameplay just like Mega-Vania type with 10 levels that will increase the difficult up to to be challenging with 5 badass bosses.

Get ready to discover the secrets within the game including amazing guests!

SPECIAL THANKS TO DRINKBOX STUDIO, TERRY CAVANAGH, GAIJIN & IMAGINARY MONSTERS FOR ALLOW USE HIS CHARACTERS!

This is a flat-out terrible game. I'm glad I didn't spend any money on it, and wish I could have the time back that I spent playing it.

Parts of this game play like Bit Trip, just poorly executed. The rest plays a bit like Super Mario Bros., except always having a gun. There's no indication that you've taken damage unless you're looking at your life bar. Jump functions inconsistently depending on where you are. For some reason when descending you can repeatedly hit jump to "float" down, but if you do it too much you die when you touch the ground. No idea what the "too much" threashold is.

At least in Super Mario Bros. you had some sort of idea what was supposed to be happening. This is kinda like walking past someone talking on the phone while you've got your headphones on. No clue what's going on with them, but whatever it is, it's happening.

The only positive reviews I see for this game say "has cards".

Well I've tried this game to see how it was, At first seemed really fun to play but I had to stop playing it early because it get so boring.
Pros:
- Funny to guess what will the enemies do and where are the moving to kill you.
Cons:
- Marked Spanish language... still everything in english.
- The jump is really really bad, it has the same speed going up than going down.
- The music is sooo repetitive. Which is it? 5-8secons of loop music? Really bored.
- The start /intro of the game seems to be made to keep away epileptic people and it's very ugly to see.

On some level I want to recommend this game, It has some really obvious flaws and shortcomings that make it interesting, in a train wreck sort of way. But I'd recommend that normal gamers stay away from this one.

Of all the problems Abo Mando has, the one thing that stands out glaringly against the rest is the terrible, repetitive music. Most levels continuously loop a track of around 12-18 seconds. It's painfully ear-grating and incredibly irritating. Apparently there was a music update a few days before I got the game, so I can't imagine how awful it must've been before.

Where the 'Mexican' horror kicks in, I'm not sure. But I saw none of it during the 2.9 hours I played. There are generic floaty ghosts and bats that attack you from above or diagonally, and since you can only shoot forwards it's near impossible to kill them without them hurting you first. Walking trees and what I assume to be various children wandering about are among some of the other 'Mexican'-themed horror on display.

The colourless backdrop, although clearly a design choice, does nothing to help either. The majority of the equally color-deprived enemies blend in with it making it hard to see anything at all, leading to almost certain death and having to endure the current level all over again from the beginning.

For the developers to proclaim this "an instant classic" is misguided and laughable. Save your money.

Well, if you're looking for a genuine NES revival, the good news is that Abo Mando is nearly indistinguishable from a number of titles in the 8-Bit behemoth's library. The bad news is that those titles are far closer to the barely functioning Cheetahmen than they are any 'instant classics' as this game bewilderingly touts itself.

I was hooked in by the Mexican horror theme as there is precious little of it to be found in gaming but nothing feels particularly culture-specific about shooting down a tedious Halloween gallery of ghosts, bats, cats and, uh, monkeys for some godforsaken reason. The boss fights, although clumsily handled, are a little bit livelier, recalling the milder confrontations of the original Castlevania trilogy but out of a total of five of them, two are against the Grim Reaper and one is against an alien overlord so that really leaves you with precious little of what Abo Mando promises you.

The two biggest problems here are that every stage looks like crap on account of being one colour (whether or not that is an artistic choice becomes irrelevant the minute it starts to affect enemy and platform visibility) and the fact that enemies constantly spawn on top of you, sometimes in mid-air, of which you can either shut up and like it or quit to refund (my personal option). Trying to sell this as a 'Mega-Vania' hybrid is, frankly, insulting to both of those games and even the several generations of knock-offs that came after them.

A disappointingly lazy effort. Full review below.
