A downloadable game for Windows and macOS


After 4 years BVOVB is re-released as a new version working on Xbox, PC and Mac. Rewritten from scratch (not that Scratch) in Unity and having more levels, more enemies and more achievements! As much as I loved FlashPunk Unity is much more fun. Also instead of animated sprites now game features ultra smooth interpolated meshes.

Bruising Vengeance of the Vintage Boxer

You play as a retired boxer who is looking for his stolen dog. The game follows a classic arcade brawler so prepare to face lots of enemies. Characters and backgrounds are based on old pictures from 1910s, 20s and 30s so this is a true retro game. Play to find:

  • 22 enemies & 3 bosses
  • 16 levels
  • 37 unlockable achievements and backstories
  • 1 car, 1 dog and 1 boxer with 2 fists

Special thanks

Aubo Lessi - music
Paweł Łoś - enemies backstories

How to play

Arrows - Move
Z - Attack, successful hits hurt more
X - Block to reduce damage (fast block nullifies damage)

Advanced combos

Block + Backward & Attack - sacrifice throw
Block + Forward & Attack  - headbutt

M - cycle music volume
F11 - fullscreen (avaiable only in standalone)

For players choosing PAD I suggest using A for attack and Right Bumper for blocking. This setup will ease the use of combos.

If you find game too hard change difficulty or just keep playing. There are extra lives bonuses for devoted players. Unlockable enemies backstories and achievements are available in main menu under CAST and FEATS options.

Where do you get your backgrounds from?

Most of them come from Library of Congress as part of Heritage Documentation Process, not only they are hi-res but also free. 
here's an example: http://www.loc.gov/pictures/item/ny0378.photos.119727p/resource/

there isnt really a reason not to just spam punch so its really ez

Well, iIt may look easy but step outside and start punching people around.

Great game! I would just love to see an option to turn off the blood, it doesn't fit in for me.

like no blood at all or black blood?

Black blood would be awesome, but I played it again (on my small stream) and didn't dislike the red blood anymore. A nice game with fun dialogues.


thanks, glad you liked it!

Pretty good game you got there.  I found it to be rather funny. Too bad I had to be somewhere after I was done recording, so I didn't end up completing the game.

Funny and awesome

Glad you liked it!
