This is a run-through of a demo for Super Bat Puncher, an entirely new homebrew game for the Nintendo Entertainment System. A platform game, you have to free the nature spirits guarding a dangerous planet and punch a lot of bats. As you obtain new abilities for yourself and the novelty boxing glove you wield, some very cool gameplay opens up as you'll see in the video.
Super Bat Puncher has been in development for the last year and still has a ways to go. Its developer Morphcat plans to take a break from the project but hopefully he won't sit on his duff for too long. This looks like too much fun to fall by the wayside. You can download the demo and play it with a NES emulator right now from the game's development blog.
