So, I have this spoof hack idea for taking "Mike Tyson's Punch-Out!!" and converting it into "Weird Al's Punch Out!!". Now, before I get too far in, let me just say I am in no way endorsing beating up Weird Al (at least in real life). I just thought it would be really cool to create a hack based on his many years of work. Basically, you'd still be Little Mac, and you'd be fighting various personas of Al and various side characters within his works. Here are some ideas:
Doc Louis: Prince or Coolio would be obvious choices, but I think R.J. Fletcher (the bad guy from UHF who runs Channel 8 in that movie) might work better with the original sprites.
Glass Joe: I thought we might base this off Al's appearance in "Living With A Hernia". I suppose it's either this or try to pull from "Genius In France" somehow.
King Hippo: "Fat" Al-who else?
Don Flamenco: White & Nerdy Al?
Bald Bull: Bald Al (from the "Gump" video)
Great Tiger: Gandhi II (segment from UHF)
Super Macho Man: Conan the Librarian (segment from UHF)
Mike Tyson: "Rambo Fantasy" Al (from UHF)
Mario: Harvey the Wonder Hamster or Dr. Demento
Naturally, we'd pull relevant lines from the source works and use those in the inter-round breaks-"Fat" Al would say "I'm too much man for you to take!", Gandhi II would say "Gimme a steak, medium rare!", etc.
Rather than just change the pre-fight cues, I'd like to create full chiptune versions of the relevant songs and have them play throughout the fight. Also, we should try to work "Polkamon" in there-perhaps during the jogging scenes.
