Game Description and Comments
Hobo Wars is a free online RPG with an attitude. As you can tell by the screenshot below Hobo Wars is mostly text-based but does have humorous graphics that describe the different areas of the game. In an interesting twist some areas of the game are actually real-life retail chains such as Wal-mart and Toys’R’Us.
You play as a hobo that explores cities doing various activities such as begging gambling and fighting. You gain experience by begging and fighting. You also need to stay “awake”. One of the main ways to stay “awake” is by buying food at the aforementioned Wal-mart.

Comment: With tongue planted firmly in cheek Hobo Wars delivers a very fun gaming experience. I get tired of all the poor versions of RuneScape and EverQuest. It is good to see a game that tries to something different for a change.
Comment: Hobo Wars is cool and fun but it’s a text game. I normally like 3-D game on the Xbox and PS2 but Hobo Wars is still awesome.
Comment: Very fun and very addictive.
Hobo Wars is free to play. The only thing is that you are allowed one account.

Guessing this one’s the game developed by Hellbored Entertainment since that one seems to fit the description. I think it’s neat in some ways, especially since it’s a browser game. But it’s not really fun since it’s more like the early 2000s web games almost like Neopets and some social avatar games (where you just navigate through links in the website), just without any special gimmick. I’d rate this game a 2/5; it just doesn’t live up to today.
