I missed games like this. It has a great story and all as far as I know. Bruh, the full game gonna be that shiii! Here's my gameplay video jusrt incase you wanna watch it
Great game, as a fan to the Punch Out games, I'm definitely gonna wait with excitement for the full version.
alright that was very good already keep up the good work
when do i dodge or duck???
If he goes to one side winding up for a hook punch you can either duck or dodge to the other side. If he throws a forward jab straight to your face you must only dodge left or right.
That's what I figured. Hope it helps!
help how do i play
when comes the next update?
if not soon i have many ideas for boxers .. I loved this game so much
We are working really hard on it, trying to re-work some stuff, but also add a few more boxers! I cant say an exact date for sure!
the game is just a black screen for me, can anyone help?
H U G E.
PS: A coyote time for the dodge action would be S I C K .
Is the good
bravo! short and sweet demo!
GOTTA KNOCK HIM OUT!
This demo was amazing, a really good show of what the finished game may look like.
The comedy and animation was very expressive and had me laughing!
The gameplay was and very challenging in a good way, it was very rewarding to finally beat the boss!
I would certainly recommend this and look forward to playing the full version some day.
Fantastic work so far!
this is hard, oldschool hard! keep it coming!
Review: This was freaking breathtaking! The short but sweet demo showcased clear signs of passion and attention to detail! The gameplay has such a retro feel but with designed with very contemporary design choices. The visuals gives you a hint of retro but doesn't spoil the artstyle by limiting colors or data space. The sound is the only part that isn't full retro, but guess what? THAT IS THE RIGHT CHOICE! I much dislike when retro games distort audio just to make it more "retro", and that is not the correct way to do it, the Big Boy way is the way to go!
The developers are obviously long time fans of Retro games as Punch-Out is a very hidden gem and hasn't been remade or inspired Indie games in the modern times. I would love to hear more about them and would love to invite them to a Developer talk! (DM me anytime)
TLDR; 10/10 (For now) The perfect game for Retrotime lovers, and for any contemporary indie game audience! Can't wait to see future progress!

Absolutely fabulous concept! I enjoyed the difficulty too!
What a demo! Had so much fun, and the gameplay is really good! Maybe some of the visuals need a touch up but is still very very veery good for this stage! The gameplay and character are top-notch and I just want to see more!
I would happily pay a premium price for the final product!
I love it all the time! Great mix of old and new!
I had to create an itcho account solely for this game application! add mike tyson or some other boxing would be an awesome fit with coach hank! love what you guys are doing and i will be opening my wallet when the steam or switch launch comes!
Extremely well produced demo!! The big publishers will fight over this?
This is a "Fine I'll do it myself" if I've ever seen one. Good luck with development
souper great demo! cant wait to taste more!!
You guys're doing what Nintendo isn't, and it looks insanely promising! Hopefully more people will find this gem.
thank you so much! this is just an itsy-bitsy taste test, even cooler stuff will be coming soon!
the gameplay has got immense potential! so simple yet challenging, but ultimately rewarding.
watch me get a sub 13 second hobo run
this game is made for me! When is more coming out?
Best 10 minutes spent in my life! Can't wait for what to come next in me and my Coach's adventures! 10/10
What an amazing alpha. I've already fallen in love with this title.
Awesome demo. My only real gripe is no rebinding for the controls. Can't wait to see more!
The demo is great. Loved the art style, the music, and the overall retro vibe.
Absolutely amazing concept but i found it a bit too hard
really great small demo! VEEERY wonderful to see what to come next!!
I am so ready for this. Punch Out was one of my favorite childhood games and this was nostalgic AF lol Great work on this game. I am looking forward to seeing it release!
maxed out game! game made by only two big boys!
Next Celeste/Cuphead/Shovel Knight! 101/100
could not rate this game higher! Its crazy that this is a free download. I can tell you have put a lot of effort into the controls, art and gameplay! Good Job!
thanks man, so glad you enjoyed it! working hard on the next demo that will hopefully be out on steam!
