So far i've found quite a lot of references in this game

Intro:
During the party on the wall is a poster of Anamanaguchi's floating island =3

First level:
Look at the house numbers you have
A _ _ (Entering your name in an arcade)
25! (Note sure..mebbe scotts age?)
3.14159 (Pi)
A crown(? looks familiar to something...)
Triforce (in front of the 3 garbage cans of recycling the middle one is a tri force)
Pac-Man Ghosts
1-Up mushroom
Mechafetus store (Paul Robertson's blog/site)

Fifth Level:
Pink Floyd Posters as well as Anamanaguchi's posters
Dragon's Den is a complete homage to Double Dragon's final lair. Everything about it SCREAMS it

Last level:
Robots
Land walkers (look like Opa Opa from Fantasy Zone?)
Little mouse biters (Mousers from TMNT)
The entire level looks like the Technodrome

Post more if you can think of it.

Scott is 24. And the pause music is definitely a homage to Battletoads. It was the first thing I noticed.

I could SWEAR that's Souji (Persona 4) and Prier (La Pucelle, other N1 games) in the crowds in the Third Level.

in the park level, while meeting Mobile, the passageway way looks like the inside of the houses in zelda 2.

@ hunter lol I saw that too

As for references, eash stage has a cord in it from a popular game franchise. Example - stage one has the notable Wily cord in it.

The first boss music is, in fact, the boss music from Crash and the Boys. Made the group that came to drink and play last night all the more pumped.

I recognized parts of every stage song, but still have yet to figure them all out.

The overworld map is laid out exactly like Super Mario 3

Sometimes turnups appears as items which is another mario reference

Knives kissing Kim for health = Kirby Superstar?

Speedy the Porcupine item = Sonic The hedgehog

When you put in a key that opens the gates it's similar to in zelda games

Scott's room-clearing move is the Tatsumaki Senpukyaku, a move made popular by Ryu from Street Fighter.

The beginning "ad" where it says "Winners don't eat meat!" is a parody of the "Winners don't do drugs!" ads that were in the English versions of a lot of US versions of arcade games.

There's one boss who does this move where his arm gets all stretchy and grotesque; this one is a double reference: it references a scene from the movie Akira, and also references a move that a character named K9999 has in the King of Fighters games.

I haven't played the full game but these are the ones I know so far.
Here comes the bride, she's as big as a whale, and her dress was on sale! Got it at Goodwill, it cost about 20, it's easy to see she's got no money!
