Punch Out Tribute

Share Collapse

Author Comments

Punch Out has always been one of my favorite Nintendo games. Unfortunately, I haven't seen that many good Punch Out flash animations. So I made my own. This tribute consists of a music video and two short animations.

The music video is set to the song "Little Mac's Confession" by Game Over. I loved this song the first time I heard it and wanted to add a visual element to it.

The basic plot of the video is Little Mac trying to become the best that he can be. He falls victim to his own criticism and doubts his abilities, but pulls through in the end. Most of the video is kind of a flashback where Little Mac is thinking about his past victories to overcome the challenge that is Mr. Dream. I hope you enjoy it.

I've spent the last few months trying to learn how to animate in Flash. I decided that my first real project would be a music video. I've been wanting to make this music video for quite some time. I figured since I've finally learned some Flash, now would be a good time to make it.

I think that it is pretty good for a first try. I'll let you be the judge though.

awell, there's not much to say about this. this has: punches,music,and oddly enough, BOUNCING PECS! there's not much i can say =P

good one

that was a pretty cool tribute animation... especially since this one was based off of Punch Out. I havent seen a whole lot of Punch Out animations here.... bit of a shame too, it was a pretty cool game way back in the day.

nice work on this animation... i enjoyed this one.

Well, I'm glad you liked it. Punch Out is still a pretty good game. It is a shame that more animations for it don't exist.


I like the second one... with the dream and Mac! THAT WAS SOO HILARIOUS! XDDD This flash was nice! Extra #1 was a great music video. Makes me feel like playing Punch Out! for SNES lol... Sooo yeah. Very good. =)

I'm glad you enjoyed it. And yes, you should go and play Punch Out. I personally use any excuse to do so.

A fitting tribute!

Graphics: Very good use of the sprites in this. The only thing that I noticed wonky was during the first verse of the song, it looks like Doc's the one talking, instead of Mac.

Style: 500 foot-pounds of whoop-ass, compacted into a scrawny little 98-pound weakling. Shake well and serve. For best results, direct at opponent's face. Chill unused portion immediately.
Bonus for the extra vids.

Sound: Love the song! The quality was excellent, and you did a nice job of editing out the part after Mac's second knockdown.

Violence: No gouts of blood, and that's good. That never had a place in the game to start with.

Interactivity: Three movies and a credits button in a menu. Simple, but effective.

Humor: This pretty much comes from extra movie #1. I lawled.

Overall: It makes my old 8-bit self all squishy with happiness. You've set a high bar for yourself on later sprite flashes, but if you're this good all the time, it'll be no sweat. Best of luck!
