Come PLAY Trayvon Tyson's Punch-Out!! *Updated With Strategy Guides*

By LUDWIG VON KOOPA - Click "read more" if you're not directly in this article.

I'd like to start off by saying that Punch-Out!! week has been a fun experience. Some of you may be wondering why this week happened. Well, it was for this: KoopaTV has just finished developing a Punch-Out!!-styled videogame that's absolutely free. (If it wasn't we'd be sued.) I wrote about the gameplay of Punch-Out!!, the characters of Punch-Out!!, the cultural aspect of Punch-Out!!, and the business side of Punch-Out!!. But to truly appreciate the game, you really need to play Punch-Out!!. So we made a game that you wouldn't have to pay for, if you missed Nintendo's generous 30 cent offer. And even if you didn't and just want some more action... it's here!
Well to be honest this whole week was just to hype up for the game, seeing as how we started the game back in early July. And in case you're wondering, this is not Jessie Go Jr. Two. In fact, we haven't started that at all.

NOTE: Play the game at this url. We can no longer host it on Scratch due to censorship issues. It'll take... a while to load.

The premise of Trayvon Tyson's Punch-Out!! is that, as a result of the verdict in Florida that George Zimmerman is Not Guilty of Second Degree Murder, America is in chaos. The owner of Kokopelli's Gym, Adam Pollock (who trained Zimmerman with the Zimmerman Program that he advertises to the press about — KoopaTV requested information immediately after the trial ended, and he has still yet to reply) has come to New York to train Little Mac, who fears for his life in the resulting riots.

As a result, Mac goes through five boss fights with the fate of America in his boxing gloves. It's a riveting and humourous tale, if I do say so myself. Below is a spoiler-filled list (for the Terms Index) of all of the many references in Trayvon Tyson's Punch-Out!!. Enjoy. (And highlight.)

Oh, and if there are any bugs... you should go ahead and tell me so I can...fix those up. But as far as I can tell, this is the most advanced Punch-Out!!-esque game on Scratch. If it's not loading for you, go directly here.

If you are under 17, don't worry about it. Y'all play Call of Duty like the dirty sinners you are and you're under 17 anyway.
