Donkey Kong mimics Van Halen in this music video clip, where he encourages all arcade characters to JUMP!

A flovie (flash movie) that has matured since it was first created back in 2003. It is definitely my most recognised work to date and was even published in a journal article!
(More details about the journal, a version with better sound quality, and even more MAME flovies, may be found at my site www.powerstrike.net/flovies)

Moreover, this flovie reminds me of the first time I used a proper preloader, which was nothing more than a modified version taken from the Newgrounds help page LOL

I hope you enjoy it as much as I have!!!

Why isn't this more well known?

Well, at least it was featured on another website. The coolest thing about this is how you just have no idea what is going to show up next. I don't understand why you coined this new term "flovie" but it's pretty cool. The colors and effects are very nicely done in this. As all of us played arcade games when we were younger, we can all remember this. A pity those arcades declined, although there are still a few around.

I had heard this song before, but I had no idea that it was sung by Van Halen. It's amazing how many beautiful worlds you discover in this cartoon. Jumping is probably the most important part of being in a platformer. For something done with sprites, it's quite colorful. I also love how this has so much spirit and joy in it.

Van Halen=awesome
Classic Gaming=awesome

VH + CG = awesome^2

While I try to figure out how that is mathematically possible (both would be 2) Let me just say that this is greatness.
