Ikachan has been largely ignored by many due to the Japanese text, but finally a proper English version was recently released and made available for download. This translation is much better than the one that has been making it's rounds, with most of the storyline kept intact and understandable.

The game itself is a nice little underwater exploration number that won't take more than an hour or two to solve. Fans of Cave Story certainly wouldn't be disappointed with one of Pixel's earlier work.

Veck Special Edition  
Ayden WolfShoot 'em up1.67 MBClick here to download

Veck Special Edition is the latest in a line of Geometry Wars clone for the PC. Graphics are great, the effects are mesmerizing, plus the enemy ships have their own specific behaviors and attack patterns.

Using directional firing is advised, although a joypad is still the best choice for these sort of games. You can guide your ship towards a corner to survive for the first five minutes, but it's not such a safe haven when the portals begin to appear.

A new type of enemy is introduced every minute, and your ship gets a weapon upgrade when that happens. You will be rewarded with the ability to fire hundreds of bullets per second for lasting at least ten minutes in the game. Shields automatically regenerate over time.

Dungeon Crawl

Linley's Dungeon Crawl is a roguelike game originally programmed by Linley Henzell in 1995. Crawl starts with the player's choice of one of twenty-six races: five different types of elves, two types of dwarves, humans, ogres, centaurs, merfolk and other beings. Racial selection sets base attributes, future skill advancement, and physical characteristics such as movement, resistances, and special abilities.

The player next chooses a character class from among twenty-eight selections. Together, class and race determine base equipment and skill training, though characters may later attempt to acquire any in-game skill. The Crawl skill system covers most abilities upon which adventurers might call, while training occurs through repetition of skill-related actions.

The goal of Crawl is to recover the Orb of Zot, hidden deep within a dungeon complex. To achieve this objective, characters must visit various dungeon branches, such as the Orcish Mines or The Lair, which often branch further in to additional areas, like the Elven Halls or The Swamp. Dungeon maps in Crawl persist as the player moves between levels.
