Hobo Brawl, also known as Hobo, is a fighting flash game that was developed by SeethingSwarm and released on October 27, 2008.

Although Flash was discontinued on January 12 2021, Hobo Brawl is still playable through BlueMaxima’s Flashpoint.


In Hobo Brawl, the player controls a homeless man who is sleeping in the city dump and is woken up by a police officer whacking him with his baton and telling him to leave. Once the player gains control, they have the option to fight back using punches, kicks and a few other moves. As the player leaves the dump, they will encounter some dump workers and once they have defeated them, they can move onto the streets and will fight more civilians and the game goes on as the player continues through the city, fighting lots of different types of people in different areas who get progressively more difficult.

As the player progresses through the game, they will reach checkpoints and be informed of a password they can use to return to that checkpoint after they return to the game at a later date.  Progression will also unlock various fighting combos that make the player more effective at fighting.
