Little Mac received letters from his fans begging him to return to the ring after years of retirement.

The former W.V.B.A. champion decides to improve his skills by taking a trip to C-Island, and facing the monstrous beasts that lurk in the caves.

Soon Mac finds himself facing deadly creatures like giant snakes, octopuses, ghosts and even evil aliens!

But will a mere boxer be able to fend off against the most brutal of creatures? Or will he have to go beyond his limits to survive?

With Nav-Com as his trainer, will Little Mac be able to return to the ring? ... alive!?


--

Little Mac vs every boss in StarTropics (or most of them).
Story and animation by me, (aka: Shinigami-Hedgehog).

This was something I wanted to do ever since I heard of the new Punch Out game (which I still don't own...)

I also wanted to introduce Little Pete and Giga Mac through this.

Note: I love 8-Bit games, so I've added a few easter eggs from random games. See if you can guess them all! Besides StarTropics and Punch Out! there are some other game references.
(here's a clue, there's 6 of them)

Punch Out! & StarTropics are (c) Genyo Takeda, Nintendo.

Thanks to Lawrence Power for "Tropicalesque" I used one of its songs for the intro and outro. (And I hope I got your name right).

Haha, yeah... about that. 

I included this character when I saw the first multiplayer footage from the Wii Punch Out!! game, and one of the things I picked from it, was that 2P Mac was called Little Pete.

...It then came to my attention that each player gets a name based on how your Mii is called (I think), so it could've been pretty much anyone. Little Alan, Little David, etc. :P

And then.. well too late to change it. XD Although I could tweak that someday.

Thank you! I wish I could've done more. :D Like say... a scene selector. Or turning into a proper AVI file with no graphical errors and upload it to Youtube. _

Glad you liked it! :)

If there's one thing I'd add, is a scene selection.

Hehe, thank you very much. I did try to recreate the bosses as perfectly as I could.. because originally I wanted to make this look like a (fake) StarTropics speedrun with a Little Mac hack... But I think making it into a story was a better idea. :P

And I'm glad you liked it. :)

That's a fan-made song, actually. It belongs to him alone, his name is Lawrence Power, I believe. And his album name is called "Tropicalesque".

It's supposed to be based on StarTropics, but even though none of the melodies in it ring any bells, they're still pretty awesome. :D

Yeah. :3 Oh, one mistake I'd like to point out though... (I hate doing this, but I'm such a critic! DX) In the opening it says StarTropics (copywrite) 1991. StarTropics was released on Dec. 1 1990 in the US and says that on the opening screen. Unless you're from Europe that is! XD I appologize if you are then, I just thought I'd mention that. :)

Lol! X333 I can give you my email. I don't mind it in the open! XP It's startropicsking@yahoo.com. I was wondering why you haven't posted anything in a while! X3 Are you still working on that school for underappreciated videogame characters?

As in startropicsking from Youtube? :O
If that's you, I've commented on several of your videos, as shinigamihedgehog. I can send you the SWF file, but isn't it easier to just right click on "Download" and "Save As"? :D I did that and it workd. XD

Unfortunatley I'm not really doing the School for underappreciated chars idea right now.. But I will make at least one or two page comic strip sometime. :P

It's an interesting Flash. Mac made the bosses look a lot easier than I remember them being. But would you mind providing some play and replay buttons instead of just having the thing loop indefinitely as soon as it loads?

Thanks.

I've already separated them as scenes.. unfortunatley, I suck at Actionscript, so once I know how to make a scene selection, I'll do so. ^^

So, this is what you've been working on, you sneak. I can tell you put so much into this.

It started somewhat slow, but the Jetpack Jumpers was where it really got good, with Mac really looking animated. Little references like the Ghostbusters theme and the Pause tune from "Battletoads" made it a hoot, and Li'l Pete was a nice touch (he's the 2P Mac from the Wii version, right?)

About the only sad part was the big fight between Giga Mac and Zoda. It ended too soon, and I think making it last for at least one full loop of the fight theme would've been better. Minor issue, though.

I was also kinda hoping for a Mica moment at the end, but, hey, that's just me.

FAVE'D!

Diegichigo Featured By Owner May 21, 2009
Thanks!

Yeah, it was a real pain. First I wanted to make it a StarTropics "boss-speedrun" spoof, but it ended up being something else. :D So yeah, I would've skipped more boss fights. After Turboss I tried spicing things up a bit to make it less monotonous.

To tell you the truth, I really thought I should have extended the last fight. :( Since the scene is already a separate one, I might add a little more content when I have more time. Of course I'll only re-upload it when I give it a scene selection so you don't have to go through everything again.

Thanks for the criticism, and for watching the whole thing. :D Maybe I should've put Mica as Mike's trainer instead? :O

True.

Anyway, maybe you should consider a sequel with the STII bosses.
