Monday Mind Teasers: Huebrix


It's like a maze that had a baby with a bag of Skittles

Spot-the-difference puzzle game with hints of I Spy and Harry Potter

Things aren't as they seem

The NES era was a special time for a lot of us. Many of the staff here at Dtoid will always have a certain attachment to the period, myself included. Abobo's Big Adventure is a tribute to all those who grew up with the gaming gods of old. This free Flash game is quite fun and funny, definitely well worth a trip down memory lane. read feature
